Type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) affects upwards of 25% of Canadian older adults and is associated with high comorbidity and burden. Studies show that lifestyle factors and self-management are associated with improved health outcomes, but many studies lack rigour or exclude older adults, particularly those with multimorbidity. More evidence is needed on the effectiveness of community-based self-management programs in older adults with T2DM and multimorbidity. The study purpose is to evaluate the effect of a community-based intervention versus usual care on physical functioning, mental health, depressive symptoms, anxiety, self-efficacy, self-management, and healthcare costs in older adults with T2DM and ...

HCA Healthcare Journal of Medicine
Background: In Florida, 2.4 million people have diabetes and 5.8 million are pre-diabetic. Not only has the prevalence of diabetes doubled over the past 20 years from 5.2 in 1992 to 11.2 in 2014, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expects 1 out of every 3 adults will have diabetes by the year 2050. In addition, in every year since 1996, Florida well exceeds the national levels in terms of prevalence of diabetes, and the gap is getting wider. A study was conducted to gather information from key physician stakeholders as to how to ...
Prrx1-Crealplfl/Flmice, A Model For Further Investigations Into The Pathophysiological Changes In Hypophosphatemia, Victoria Demambro, Jennifer Daruszka, Daniel Brooks, Mary Bouxsein, Cliff Rosen
Costas T. Lambrew Research Retreat 2020
Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is caused by loss of function mutations in the tissuenonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNSALP) gene (Alpl) which results in rickets, osteomalicia and bone fragility with severe childhood forms resulting in lean body mass. TNSALP is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored phosphatase localized at the plasma membrane which when cleaved can also be found in circulation. In vitro, inhibition of TNSALP leads to a significant decrease in lipid accumulation suggesting TNSALP, an enzyme known for its mineralizing properties, may be pro-adipogenic. TNSALP has been implicated in bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (BMMSC) lineage determination between osteoblasts and adipocytes through direct interactions ...

Development Of Paper-Based Screen-Printed Carbon-Paste Electrode For Sensing Glucose For Diabetics, Yechan Hwang
19th Annual Celebration of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (2020)
In recent years there have been many interests in developing paper based electrodes. The purpose of this project is to develop a working paper-based electrode that can detect glucose via an enzyme and redox mediator (Tris(5-amino-1, 10-phenanthroline) Iron(II)). In the process of developing a paper-based electrode, cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) were used as primary methods. The redox mediator was electropolymerized onto glassy carbon (GC) and carbon-paste electrodes (CPE) and their subsequent charge-transfer properties were characterized using CV and EIS. Cyclic voltammetry characterization studies of the electropolymerized films revealed excellent charge transfer properties with ...
A Collaborative Approach To Incentivizing Healthy Food Choices Among Uncontrolled Diabetic Patients At A Local Federally Qualified Health Center To Improve Health Outcomes, 2020 Grand Valley State University
A Collaborative Approach To Incentivizing Healthy Food Choices Among Uncontrolled Diabetic Patients At A Local Federally Qualified Health Center To Improve Health Outcomes, Briauna J. Taylor
Background: The rate of uncontrolled diabetes among patients at a local Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) is higher than the nation standard, a phenomenon believed to be caused by the effects of social determinants of health (SDOH). SDOH, specifically food insecurity, play a significant role in health outcomes of diabetic patients. Increasing access to healthy foods, thereby reducing food insecurity, has the potential to improve glycemic control and reduce diet related chronic disease.
Objectives: The project aims to determine if partnership with a membership based incentivized grocery store has the potential to positively impact health outcomes among vulnerable patients with ...
Mechanisms Of Insulin Resistance Related To White, Beige, And Brown Adipocytes, 2020 University of Massachusetts Medical School
Mechanisms Of Insulin Resistance Related To White, Beige, And Brown Adipocytes, Michael P. Czech
Open Access Articles
BACKGROUND: The diminished glucose lowering effect of insulin in obesity, called "insulin resistance," is associated with glucose intolerance, type 2 diabetes, and other serious maladies. Many publications on this topic have suggested numerous hypotheses on the molecular and cellular disruptions that contribute to the syndrome. However, significant uncertainty remains on the mechanisms of its initiation and long-term maintenance.
SCOPE OF REVIEW: To simplify insulin resistance analysis, this review focuses on the unifying concept that adipose tissue is a central regulator of systemic glucose homeostasis by controlling liver and skeletal muscle metabolism. Key aspects of adipose function related to insulin resistance ...

Enteroviral infections are implicated in islet autoimmunity and type 1 diabetes (T1D) pathogenesis. Significant beta-cell stress and damage occur with viral infection, leading to cells that are dysfunctional and vulnerable to destruction. Human stem cell-derived beta (SC-beta) cells are insulin-producing cell clusters that closely resemble native beta cells. To better understand the events precipitated by enteroviral infection of beta cells, we investigated transcriptional and proteomic changes in SC-beta cells challenged with coxsackie B virus (CVB). We confirmed infection by demonstrating that viral protein colocalized with insulin-positive SC-beta cells by immunostaining. Transcriptome analysis showed a decrease in insulin gene expression following ...

Da Silva, Luisa Arueira Chaves, Andrea Damaso Bertoldi, Dennis Ross-Degnan, Vera Lucia Luiza
BACKGROUND: Increasing medicines availability and affordability is a key goal of Brazilian health policies. "Farmacia Popular" (FP) Program is one of the government's key strategies to achieve this goal. Under FP, antihypertension (HTN) and antiglycemic (DM) medicines have been provided at subsidized prices in private retail settings since 2006, and free of charge since 2011. We aim to assess the impact of sequential changes in FP benefits on patient affordability and government expenditures for HTN and DM treatment under the FP, and examine their implications for public financing mechanisms and program sustainability.
METHODS: Longitudinal, retrospective study using interrupted time ...
Low Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet Versus Aerobic Physical Activity In The Management And Treatment Of Type 2 Diabetes: A Review Paper, Nicole Weis
Introduction: In recent decades, the number of people affected by type 2 diabetes mellitus has been a topic of interest. The wide reaching impact on both, individual and societal, healthcare costs and quality measures, begs for attention and interventions. Lifestyle modifications, such as: weight management or loss, increasing physical activity, and making healthier dietary choices, are the first line intervention. However, there are not studies that directly compare the role of a single dietary approach to a form of physical activity. Rather, different diets go head to head as well as aerobic versus resistance training. Therefore, in an attempt to ...
