  • Sedentary Lifestyle Attenuates Positive Metabolic Effect of Regular Physical Exercise

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the duration of sedentary time on blood lipids and anthropometric parameters in people practicing resistance training in leisure time. Our study included 213 subjects without any history of cardiovascular disease. The target group (169 subjects) had at least two 90-min sessions of resistance training per week for at least 12 months prior to study commencing.

    Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme produced primarily by cells of liver, bone, kidney, small intestine and placenta, each detectable by a specific isoenzyme. It appears in maternal serum in the second trimester and increases progressively with gestational age.

  • Epicardial Adipose Tissue Thickness as a Reliable Marker of Increased Cardiovascular Risk in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a distinct visceral adipose tissue that is present in between the visceral pericardium and myocardium, in which the coronary arteries are lodged. This tissue releases several inflammatory and atherogenic mediators which lead to the initiation and/or progression of coronary atherosclerosis ...

  • Association of Diabetes and Severe COVID-19 Outcomes: A Rapid Review and Meta-Analysis

    Addressing the urgent need for evidence on diabetes as a serious comorbidity for severe illness and death from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we investigated the association between diabetes and COVID-19 disease severity in patients hospitalized due to COVID-19.

  • Effects of Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors on Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: A Chart-Based Analysis

    The presence of nonalcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLDs) and type 2 diabetes was associated with elevated risks of cardiovascular events as well as the progression of NAFLD to fibrosis/cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.







Understanding the Role of Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 Inhibitors in COVID-19: Findings From a Systematic Review
Inhibitors of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) have been used for diabetic patients and there is debate around using the same DPP4 inhibitors as a potential source of treatment for severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The findings from individual studies regarding the usage of DDP4 inhibitors on COVID infection are available but not reviewed and synthesized. Full Text
