  • Bone Mineral Density as a Predictor of Cardiovascular Disease in Women: A Real-World Retrospective Study

    Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in women remains understudied, under-diagnosed, and under-treated. Traditional risk factors affect men’s and women’s hearts differently. However, the current risk stratification tools do not consider such sex-specific factors.

  • Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone and Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate

    The retrospective study investigated thyroid function and CKD, and assessed the relationship between thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and urine albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), and the slope of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), stratified by CKD grades.

  • 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.

  • Extreme Elevation of Alkaline Phosphatase in a Pregnancy Complicated by Uncontrolled Chronic Hypertension and Its Association With Placental Pathology

    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 ...







Rheumatological and Musculoskeletal Complications in Diabetes Patients
Musculoskeletal disorders are common in individuals with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) or type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). It is associated with significant morbidity and hampered quality of life. Hyperglycemia-induced aberrant levels of insulin or insulin growth factors may lead to neuropathic complications, which enhances pain through central sensitization. Full Text
