  • 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.

  • Effects of Policosanol in Patients With Metabolic Syndrome: A Six-Month Study

    The metabolic syndrome comprises a set of cardiovascular risk factors represented by obesity of central distribution, dyslipidemias, glucose metabolism abnormalities and arterial hypertension, closely associated with insulin resistance. The aim of this study is to investigate in the medium term the effects of policosanol in patients with metabolic syndrome, as well as its safety and tolerability.

  • Acute Pancreatitis in a Patient With Parathyroid Carcinoma

    Parathyroid carcinoma is a rare endocrine malignancy. Clinical features of parathyroid carcinoma are mainly due to the effects of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Hypercalcemia produced by primary or secondary hyperparathyroidism is a rare and unclear cause of acute pancreatitis.

  • Evaluation of Age-Specific Efficacy and Safety of 12 Months of Sitagliptin Therapy Administered by Non-Diabetologists

    The efficacy and safety of sitagliptin therapy in the elderly were confirmed in non-specialist settings. These findings will help non-diabetologists choose an appropriate drug in areas where the numbers of diabetic patients and elderly persons are increasing.







An Appropriate Energy Intake Proportion of Three Major Nutrients for Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes

Recently, the effectiveness of carbohydrate-restricted diet, and the diet for sarcopenia and frailty have been suggested, inducing the paradigm shift of diet for type 2 diabetes. Full Text

Sodium-Glucose Co-Transporter 2 Inhibitors Increase Serum Level of Total Procollagen Type 1 Amino-Terminal Propeptide and Bone Strength in Japanese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus is known to be associated with an increased risk of bone fracture. We investigated the effects of sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors on bone strength and density in type 2 diabetic patients. Full Text

Adrenal Insufficiency due to Total Primary Empty Sella Syndrome
A 64-year-old woman was transported suffering from persistent lower abdominal pain, vomiting, and low-grade fever. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an empty sella (ES) and hormone tests revealed a disappearance of diurnal variation of cortisol, low cortisol and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secretion especially in the morning, and poor ACTH-cortisol axis reaction, as well as normal hypothalamus-pituitary gland-thyroid or adrenal gland axis hormone reaction.
