Topic: Nutrition/Diet for HDL
HDL is a lipoprotein which has anti-atherogenic property by reversing cholesterol transport from the peripheral tissues to liver. Low HDL-cholesterol as well as high LDL-cholesterol is associated with the development of coronary heart diseases. The dietary and nutritional factors could influence on HDL metabolism, thus we can make Dietary Reference to prevent coronary heart diseases. Welcome any types of papers (Original Article, Review Article, Short Communication, Editorial (Expert Opinion), Case Report, Letter to the Editor) about the effects of “Nutrition and Diet” on HDL metabolism.

  • Global Gene Expression Profiling in Omental Adipose Tissue of Morbidly Obese Diabetic African Americans

    Adipose tissues play an important role in the pathophysiology of obesity-related diseases including type 2 diabetes (T2D).

  • Myelolipomatous Adrenal Adenoma and Adrenal Scintigraphy

    Adrenal myelolipomas are usually benign and non-functioning masses. On the other hand, adrenal myelolipomatous adenoma that may mimic adrenal myelolipoma on conventional imaging may be a rare cause of subclinical Cushing’s disease.

  • Autonomic Diabetic Neuropathy Impairs Glucose and Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 Inhibitor-Regulated Glucagon Concentration in Type 1 Diabetic Patients

    ipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors (DPP4i) could exert their glucagonostatic action through a functional autonomic nervous system independently from insulin secretion.

  • Olfactory Sulcus Hypoplasia Images of a Case With Kallmann Syndrome

    Kallmann syndrome is a form of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism accompanied by anosmia or hyposmia. MR images of midline defects in Kallmann syndrome were rarely seen in the literature.

  • Serologic Screening of Celiac Disease in Patients With Type 1 Diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is an autoimmune disorder associated with increased risk of additional autoimmune diseases (ADs) as celiac disease (CD). The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of CDs in a population of diabetic children along with the presence of any suggestive clinical signs and symptoms of CD and any effects of CD on the patients’ diabetic control and growth.







Deficient Activity of Mitochondrial Flavine Adenine Dinucleotide-Linked Glycerophosphate Dehydrogenase in Pancreatic Islet Beta Cells as a Determinant of Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus

Extensive experimental investigations in animal models of diabetes mellitus have led to the proposal that a deficient activity of mitochondrial flavine adenine dinucleotide (FAD)-linked glycerophosphate dehydrogenase represents a far-from-uncommon, albeit not invariable, determinant of pancreatic islet B-cell insulin secretory dysfunction.

Evaluation of Bone Turnover in Patients With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

The purpose of the study was to assess the effect of changes in male and female’s body with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) on the state of the bone mineral density and the metabolic rate, and to determinate the direction of changes in serum markers of bone remodeling and bone mineral density in both sexes due to this disease.

Abdominal Pain in Diabetic Ketoacidosis: Beyond the Obvious
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a medical emergency characterized by hyperglycemia, high anion gap metabolic acidosis and elevated circulating ketone bodies resulting from severe impairment of insulin secretion and/or action. Besides dehydration, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain is also considered to be a cardinal clinical feature of DKA. Diagnosis relies on biochemical criteria, and disease severity on clinical and laboratory findings. Radiological investigation is not standard of care of DKA despite being required in specific situations. Full Text
