  • Improvement of Glycemic Control by Metformin Is Associated With Frequency of Defecation Before Treatment in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    It was recently reported that metformin induces glucose excretion in the terminal ileum. This study reassessed the ability of metformin to promote defecation and its relationship with the glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) level in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

  • Thyroid Gland Dysfunction and COVID-19 Severity: Is There a Correlation?

    It has been suggested that thyroid gland dysfunction in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients can directly or indirectly affect COVID-19 severity and mortality rates.

  • Application of Self-Monitoring of Blood Glucose by Intermittently Scanned Continuous Glucose Monitoring to Lifestyle Improvement After Health Checkup

    Although workers are required to undergo annual health examinations in Japan, many issues remain with encouraging examinees to visit medical institutions after the checkup and providing education in lifestyle improvements.

  • Metabolically Obese Normal-Weight Phenotype as a Risk Factor for High Blood Pressure: A Five-Year Cohort

    The metabolically obese normal-weight (MONW) phenotype has been considered a risk factor for different chronic diseases, but its role in high blood pressure (HBP) is still unclear. The aim of the study is to determine if the MONW phenotype constitutes a risk factor for hypertension in Peruvian adults belonging to a 5-year cohort.

  • Combination of a Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Analog and a Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitor Improves Lipid Metabolism Compared to the Monotherapies in Experimental Metabolic Syndrome

    Here we evaluated the association of the glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) analog, liraglutide, and the sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor, canagliflozin, on the improvement of metabolic syndrome symptoms in a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity rat model.







Approach to the Patient With Pituitary Adenoma Using Telemedicine: Knowledge Gaps and Recommendations
Telemedicine (TM) can be defined as the practice of medicine using technology such as video teleconferencing, telephone calls, or emails in order to provide health care from a distance. The emergence of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and its potential complications have created an urgent need for the transformation of physical visits into virtual encounters.

Sheehan’s Syndrome in a Fifty-Six-Year-Old Woman Presenting With a Retroperitoneal Mass: Perioperative Management During a Major Surgery
Patients with Sheehan’s syndrome (SS) can present with adrenal crisis, myxedema coma, hypoglycemia, and hyponatremia, which could be triggered by an infection or surgery. For the endocrinologist, a patient with SS who is scheduled for surgery presents a significant challenge as more likely to experience delayed emergence from anesthesia, hypotension that does not respond to the standard regimen, a decrease in core body temperature, and a decreased need for anesthetic drugs due to reduced metabolism.
