  • 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...

  • 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.







Effects of Consumption of Various Fatty Acids on Serum HDL-Cholesterol Levels

Since HDL is an anti-atherogenic lipoprotein which plays a role in reversing cholesterol transport from the peripheral tissues to the liver, low HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels are associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. Full Text

Effects of SGLT2 Inhibition on eGFR and Glomerular and Tubular Damage Markers in Japanese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are a new class of antihyperglycemic drugs that enhances insulin-independent urinary glucose excretion. Recent studies have suggested that SGLT2 inhibitors possess a renoprotective property in type 2 diabetes patients. However, evidence of the effects of SGLT2 inhibition on glomerular and tubular damage markers is lacking. Full Text

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
