  • Associations Between Type 2 Diabetes Subtypes and Complications: Analysis of the Malaysia National Diabetes Registry

    The aim of the study was to investigate type 2 diabetes (DM2) subtypes and associations with complications in a multiethnic Asian population. DM2 subtypes associate differently with complications in Malaysia, similar to patterns found in European cohorts.

  • Improvement of Glycemic Control by Metformin Is Associated With Frequency of Defecation Before Treatment in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    It was recently reported that metformin induces glucose excretion in the terminal ileum. This study reassessed the ability of metformin to promote defecation and its relationship with the glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) level in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

  • Thyroid Gland Dysfunction and COVID-19 Severity: Is There a Correlation?

    It has been suggested that thyroid gland dysfunction in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients can directly or indirectly affect COVID-19 severity and mortality rates.

  • Application of Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose by Intermittently Scanned Continuous Glucose Monitoring to Lifestyle Improvement After Health Checkup

    Although workers are required to undergo annual health examinations in Japan, many issues remain with encouraging examinees to visit medical institutions after the checkup and providing education in lifestyle improvements.

  • Metabolically Obese Normal-Weight Phenotype as a Risk Factor for High Blood Pressure: A Five-Year Cohort

    The metabolically obese normal-weight (MONW) phenotype has been considered a risk factor for different chronic diseases, but its role in high blood pressure (HBP) is still unclear. The aim of the study is to determine if the MONW phenotype constitutes a risk factor for hypertension in Peruvian adults belonging to a 5-year cohort.







Increased Prevalence of Advanced Metabolic Dysfunction-Associated Steatotic Liver Disease Fibrosis in Type 2 Diabetics Despite Low-Risk Fibrosis-4 Index Scores
The American Gastroenterology Association (AGA) guidelines for metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease (MASLD) recommend screening for fibrosis in high-risk subjects with either type 2 diabetes, two or more metabolic risk factors, or steatosis on imaging. Full Text

Sheehan’s Syndrome in a Fifty-Six-Year-Old Woman Presenting With a Retroperitoneal Mass: Perioperative Management During a Major Surgery
Patients with Sheehan’s syndrome (SS) can present with adrenal crisis, myxedema coma, hypoglycemia, and hyponatremia, which could be triggered by an infection or surgery. For the endocrinologist, a patient with SS who is scheduled for surgery presents a significant challenge as more likely to experience delayed emergence from anesthesia, hypotension that does not respond to the standard regimen, a decrease in core body temperature, and a decreased need for anesthetic drugs due to reduced metabolism.
