Diabetes Obes Metab.
  • In patients with newly diagnosed T2DM, waist size was linked to higher inflammatory markers; 1 SD deviation in waist size increased TNF-α by 22%, IL-6 by 35%, & hsCRP by 46%
  • Hyperinsulinemia accounted for 9-25% of the association between abdominal adiposity & low-grade inflammation, followed by lower physical activity (5-7%) & high triglycerides (2-6%)
  • Factors such as comorbidity & HbA1c had minimal impact (...

Diabetes Obes Metab.
As per recent findings, initiating DPP4is at HbA1c <7.5% significantly lowered risks of insulin initiation, severe hypoglycemia, CV events, heart failure, kidney disease progression & mortality compared to starting at ≥7.5%. Lower HbA1c variability largely accounted for these improvements, suggesting that early DPP4i initiation can combat therapeutic inertia, delay insulin requirement & minimize HbA1c fluctuations.

J Orthop Surg Res.
In patients undergoing hip hemiarthroplasty (HHA) for femoral neck fracture, recent findings revealed a 2.2% rise in complication risk for every minute added to surgery duration, with a startling 111.8% higher mortality risk for procedures exceeding 86 minutes. Moreover, patient age and sex emerged as significant factors, with older age and male gender correlating with increased mortality rates.

J Inflamm Res.
Recent research has spotlighted vitamin K as a compelling diagnostic marker for suicidal tendencies in depression, showcasing impressive sensitivity (0.842) and specificity (0.715). This highlights its potential as a biological risk factor for depression. The study also uncovered significant reductions in vitamin K levels, alongside thyroid hormones, cholesterol, and vitamin D, in those with suicidal attempts.
