  • Diabetes Mellitus and the Cardiovascular System

    Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an epidemic which affects close to 100 million patients worldwide; the majority being type 2 diabetes mellitus. The rising incidence has resulted in a proportional increase in the frequency of cardiovascular disease attributable to DM, as revealed by various population-based studies.

  • 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.







Does Glycogen Accumulation in Pancreatic Islet Beta Cells Play a Minor or Major Role in the Physiology and Pathology of the Insulin Secretory Response to Glucose?

The role of beta cell glycogen in the control of glucose homeostasis was recently questioned. This review aims at reminding that glycogen accumulation in insulin-producing pancreatic islet cells was previously proposed to play a role in the phenomenon of beta cell glucotoxicity. The findings recently reported in an article published in Diabetologia do not invalidate the concept mentioned above. Full Text

Effects of the Switching From High-Purity Eicosapentaenoic Acid to Combination of Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid on Metabolic Parameters: A Retrospective Longitudinal Study

Effects of the switching from high-purity eicosapentaenoic acid ester (hp-EPA) to n-3 fatty acid formulation containing EPA and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) on metabolic parameters remain largely unknown. We retrospectively picked up patients who had been prescribed EPA + DHA for 2 months or longer after the prescription of hp-EPA for 2 months or longer between January 2010 and December 2015.

A Large Superior Mediastinal Mass: “Terrible Thyroid Cancer”
Anterior mediastinal masses arise from a diverse group of conditions including thymoma, teratoma, retrosternal goiter, thoracic aortic lesions and lymphoma. We report a case of a 70-year-old male with anterior mediastinal mass who on further evaluation was found to have a large mediastinal lymph node secondary to a papillary thyroid cancer. Full Text
