  • Spousal diabetes status as a risk factor for incident type 2 diabetes: a
           prospective cohort study and meta-analysis
    • Abstract: Aims It is unclear if the presence of type-2 diabetes in one spouse is associated with the development of diabetes in the other spouse. We studied the concordance of diabetes among black and white participants in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study and summarized existing studies in a meta-analysis. Methods We conducted a prospective cohort analysis of ARIC data from 8077 married men and women (mean age 54 years) without diabetes at baseline (1987–1989). Complementary log–log models that accounted for interval censoring was used to model the hazard ratio (HR) for the association of spousal diabetes status with the incidence of diabetes. For the meta-analysis, we searched MEDLINE and EMBASE for observational studies published through December 2018 that evaluated spousal concordance for diabetes. Results During a median follow-up of 22 years, 2512 incident cases of diabetes were recorded. In models with adjustment for general adiposity, spousal cardiometabolic factors and other diabetes risk factors, adults who had a spouse with diabetes had elevated risk for incident diabetes compared to those without a spouse diagnosed with diabetes (HR 1.20, 95% confidence interval 1.02–1.41). This association did not differ by sex or race. Summarized estimates from the 17 studies (489,798 participants from 9 countries) included in the meta-analysis showed a positive association between spousal diabetes status and the development of diabetes (Pooled odds ratio 1.88, 95% CI 1.52–2.33). Conclusions Results from this large prospective biracial cohort and meta-analysis provides evidence that spouses of persons with diabetes are a high-risk group for diabetes.

  • The prevalence of comorbid depression in patients with type 2 diabetes: an
           updated systematic review and meta-analysis on huge number of
           observational studies
    • Abstract: Aims Depression is a common co-morbidity in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Untreated depression in these patients adversely affects self-care activities and other diabetes complications. The aim of this study is to estimate the prevalence of depression among patients with T2DM by conducting a meta-analysis of observational studies. Methods MEDLINE, Web of Science, Science Direct, and Google Scholar databases were searched for all observational studies that assessed depression in T2DM. Relevant articles were searched using the combination of Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms of “depression”, “depressive disorder”, and “diabetes mellitus” published between January 2007 and July 2018. Random effects model was used to estimate the weighted prevalence rates and 95% CI using “metaprop program in STATA 11”. Results In total, the 248 included studies (with 273 reported prevalence) identified 83,020,812 participants; of them, 23,245,827 (28%; 95% CI 27, 29) suffered from different severity levels of depressive disorders. The prevalence of depression was separately reported in 137,372 males and 134,332 females. Of them, 31,396 males (23%, 95% CI: 20, 26) and 45,673 females (34%, 95% CI: 31, 38) were depressed. Compared with global estimate, depression prevalence was lower in Europe (24%) and Africa (27%), but higher in Australia (29%) and Asia (32%). The prevalence in America was equal to the estimated prevalence in the world (28%). Depression was more common in subjects younger than 65 compared with elderlies (31% vs. 21%). Conclusion Our findings demonstrated that almost one in four adults with T2DM experienced depression. Given the high prevalence of depressive disorders in diabetic patients, screening these patients for co-morbid depression and its relevant risk factors is highly recommended.

  • A randomized controlled trial comparing a telemedicine therapeutic
           intervention with routine care in adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus
           treated by insulin pumps
    • Abstract: Aim To examine the effectiveness and safety over a 12-month period of a telemedicine intervention in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) treated with insulin pumps. Methods 74 T1D patients on insulin pumps for at least 1 year (mean 19.5 [11.5] years) and HbA1c ≥ 6.5% (≥ 48 mmol/mol) were randomized to the telemedicine (n = 37) or the standard care group (n = 37). The intervention group was instructed to download data from insulin pumps and glucometers monthly. They received immediate phone feedback and recommendations for insulin dose adjustment; and face-to-face visits once in 6 months, compared to once every 3 months for the standard care group. Satisfaction with treatment, quality of life and frequency of hypoglycemic events was evaluated. Results The mean changes in HbA1c adjusted to baseline were − 0.08% (0.25 mmol/mol) vs. − 0.01% (0.03 mmol/mol), in the intervention and control groups, respectively (p = 0.18) at 12 months, without an increased frequency of hypoglycemia. Patients in the intervention group felt satisfied and interested in continuing with the treatment (p = 0.04). The quality of life scores were similar in both groups. Direct total costs were 24% less in the intervention group, and indirect total costs decreased by 22% compared to the year preceding the study. Conclusions Internet-based insulin dose adjustment is as effective and safe as routine care in adults with type 1 diabetes treated by insulin pumps. For suitable patients, some of the time-consuming routine visits may be replaced by user-friendly digital medicine. Clinical trial registration Clinical Identifier NCT01887431.

  • Efficacy of vitrectomy combined with an intraoperative dexamethasone
           implant in refractory diabetic macular edema
    • Abstract: Aims To evaluate the safety and efficacy of vitrectomy combined with an intraoperative dexamethasone (Ozurdex®) implant in refractory diabetic macular edema (DME). Methods Patients who were diagnosed at our institution as having DME refractory to more than 6 months of non-surgical treatment and underwent intravitreal dexamethasone implantation combined with vitrectomy. All patients were followed up for more than 12 months. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA, logMAR), central macular thickness (CMT), and intraocular pressure at the initial visit and 1, 3, 4, 6, and 12 months after treatment were recorded. Results Twenty-two eyes (22 patients) were included in this study. The mean preoperative BCVA was 0.68 and the mean CMT was 470.80 µm. The total number of the previous injections was 5.1 ± 1.6. The mean BCVA was significantly improved at all visits, and the mean CMT was also significantly reduced (p < 0.05). Sixteen eyes (73%) did not need additional implantations during follow-up. Conclusions Vitrectomy combined with an intraoperative dexamethasone (Ozurdex) implant was an effective and safe treatment option in patients with refractory DME.

  • Agonistic autoantibodies against B2-adrenergic receptors correlating with
           macrovascular disease in longstanding diabetes type 2
    • Abstract: Aims Agonistic autoantibodies directed against adrenergic, endothelin, and angiotensin receptors are known as pathogenic factors in disease-causing vascular impairments such as Buergers’ disease, dilatative cardiomyopathy, dementia, and preeclampsia. Diabetes mellitus also causes micro- and macrovascular damages, but pathogenesis is still not fully understood. Following indications for a pathogenic role of the mentioned antibodies from our preliminary investigations, we investigated the prevalence in a bigger cohort of patients with longstanding diabetes with or without diabetic complications. Methods We included 200 patients in four groups (grouping due to duration of diabetes and presence of complications) from our university polyclinic with longstanding diabetes mellitus type 2 and evaluated the prevalence of the agonistic autoantibodies using ELISA technique. Results Antibodies directed against the alpha1-(39%), the first extracellular loop of the beta2-(34,5%), and the first extracellular loop of the beta1-adrenergic receptor (29,0%) were the most often detectable. With progression of diabetes and its complications, we found a decrease in the prevalence of the antibodies. Regression analyses revealed a positive association of antibodies against the first loop of the beta2-receptor and the presence of macrovascular complications. Conclusions This investigation found mid frequent prevalence of agonistic autoantibodies in patients with longstanding diabetes mellitus type 2. The association between an antibody against one epitope and the presence of macrovascular complications may indicates a pathogenic linkage. This finding is inconsistent with our preliminary data and needs further evaluation, maybe by follow-up.

  • Relationship between health care insurance status, social determinants and
           prevalence of diabetes-related microvascular complications in patients
           with type 1 diabetes: a nationwide survey in Brazil
    • Abstract: Aims To evaluate the relationship between social determinants, health care insurance status and occurrence of diabetes-related chronic complications (DRCC) in Brazilian patients with type 1 diabetes. Methods A multicenter cross-sectional study conducted between August 2011 and August 2014 in 14 public clinics in 10 Brazilian cities. Data were obtained from 1760 patients, aged 29.9 ± 11.9 years, with diabetes duration of 15.5 ± 9.3 years; 55.9% female, 54.5% Caucasians, 69.7% were attended exclusively by the public Brazilian National Health Care System (BNHCS) and 30.3% had also private health care insurance. Patients’ information was obtained through a questionnaire and a chart review form. Results The social determinants associated with having both private and public health care insurance were being employed, belonging to medium or high socioeconomic status, having more years of school attendance and having younger age. Regarding DRCC, patients that had private and public health care had lower rates of diabetic retinopathy and of any other DRCC. Chronic kidney disease was not associated with health care coverage status after adjusting for classical clinical risk factors. Conclusions Brazilian patients with type 1 diabetes had better clinical control and lower rates of DRCC, mainly retinopathy, when also having private health care insurance. These patients presented less frequently predictors of chronic complications such as high levels of HbA1c and blood pressure. BNHCS should change the approach for screening DRCC such as diabetic retinopathy, using methods such as telemedicine that would lead to earlier diagnosis, better outcomes and will be cost-effective sometime after its implementation.

  • Ten years of experience with DPP-4 inhibitors for the treatment of type 2
           diabetes mellitus
    • Abstract: Achieving and maintaining recommended glycemic targets without causing adverse e ffects, including hypoglycemia, is challenging, especially in older patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The introduction of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors, more than 10 years ago, has provided an alternative to conventional medications for the intensification of glucose-lowering treatment after failure of metformin monotherapy, and therefore, marked an important advance in the management of T2DM. By prolonging the activity of incretin hormones, DPP-4 inhibitors induce insulin release and decrease glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner. This results in a more physiologic glycemic control as compared to that ensured by insulin secretagogues (sulfonylureas and glinides). Overall, DPP-4 inhibitors have a favorable safety profile and can be used without dose adjustments in older adults and in patients with mild renal impairment; they have a neutral effect on body weight and do not cause hypoglycemia by themselves. Safety issues, reported mainly in post-marketing surveillance programs and including cardiovascular outcomes and the risk of acute pancreatitis, are being extensively investigated. The aim of this review is to discuss the impact of DPP-4 inhibitors on the treatment of T2DM, after 10 years of experience, with an emphasis on diabetes care in Italy. We will first describe T2DM treatment in Italy and then provide an overview of the main findings from randomized controlled trials, real-world studies and post-marketing surveillance programs with DPP-4 inhibitors.

  • Nutritional markers in patients with diabetes and pancreatic exocrine
    • Abstract: Aims Altered pancreatic exocrine function can be observed in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. In the present study, we evaluated the potential nutritional consequences of this dysfunction. Methods Serum concentrations of nutritional markers, including albumin, cholesterol, triacylglycerol, vitamins A, D, and E, were assessed in a cohort of 468 patients (137 with type 1 diabetes and 331 with type 2 diabetes), after exclusion of the patients with a CRP > 10 mg/l. These patients were compared with 47 patients with diseases of the exocrine pancreas and diabetes (type 3c diabetes or pancreatogenic diabetes). Fecal elastase-1 and chymotrypsin concentrations were measured and patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes were divided into three groups according to whether zero (group NN), one (group LN), or both (group LL) concentrations were decreased. Results Several markers differed significantly between the groups of patients, including BMI, albumin, phosphorus, and fat-soluble vitamins. Patients with pancreatogenic diabetes had markedly more profound alterations than patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and altered exocrine function. However, patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and decreased concentrations of both elastase-1 and chymotrypsin had lower albumin, phosphorus, and vitamin A than patients with normal pancreatic exocrine function. Conclusions Modest nutritional alterations were found in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and altered exocrine function. Patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and altered exocrine function may thus deserve to be screened for nutritional deficiencies.

  • Long-term outcomes after intravitreal dexamethasone treatment in steroid
    • Abstract: Aims Intravitreal steroid implants have emerged as an adjunctive therapy in diabetic macular edema (DME) in patients refractory to anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents. However, the use of these agents in patients with a prior history of steroid-induced ocular hypertension is limited. The present study aimed to analyze long-term intraocular pressure (IOP) response to the dexamethasone implant in patients with DME and a history of steroid-induced increase in IOP. Methods In a multicenter retrospective review, 17 eyes with DME and a history of steroid-induced increase in IOP to > 21 mmHg were treated with the dexamethasone implant and followed for 18 months. Patients with a history of vitrectomy of vitreoretinal interface pathology were excluded. The primary outcomes were the change in IOP and use of IOP-lowering agents. Results Among the study population (17 eyes), there was no significant change in mean IOP from baseline through 18 months (15.9 ± 2.0–14.6 ± 2.8 mmHg; p = 0.18). The number of patients requiring IOP-lowering agents rose from 5 at baseline to 14 at 18 months (p = 0.0049). None of the study eyes required surgical treatment. Conclusions Though dexamethasone does predictably lead to an increase in IOP, this adverse effect was effectively managed with topical treatment. The present study suggests that the intravitreal dexamethasone implant may be considered in patients with DME and a history of steroid-induced ocular hypertension who have exhausted first-line treatments.

  • Cross-talk between fetal membranes and visceral adipose tissue involves
           HMGB1–RAGE and VIP–VPAC2 pathways in human gestational diabetes
    • Abstract: Aims Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is defined as glucose intolerance that is first diagnosed during pregnancy. Maternal adipose tissue and fetal membranes secrete various molecules that are relevant players in the pathogenesis of GDM. This pilot study aimed to examine whether the expression of the high mobility group box 1 protein (HMGB1) and its receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE), and the vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and its receptors (VPAC-1,-2) were modified in pregnant women with GDM. Methods Fetal membranes (FMs), omental adipose tissue (VAT) explants, and serum samples were obtained from 12 women with GDM and 12 with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) at delivery. The expression of HMGB1, RAGE and VIP, VPAC-1,-2 was detected by Western Blotting in explants; circulating levels and “in vitro” release of HMGB1 and VIP were measured by ELISA tests. Results HMGB1 tissue expression was higher in FMs obtained from GDM women (p = 0.02) than in FMs from NGT women. VPAC2 (p = 0.03) and RAGE (p = 0.03) tissue expressions were significantly increased in VAT from GDM subjects. Only FMs of NGT released detectable levels of HMGB1, which was not observed in samples obtained from GDM. VAT of GDM released lower levels of VIP (p = 0.05) than NGT samples. Conclusions This study indicates that a fine tuned regulation exists between FMs and VAT throughout pregnancy to maintain immune metabolic homeostasis. In GDM a balance between inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators has been observed. Further studies are needed to establish their exact role on fetal and maternal outcomes in GDM.

  • Maternal height and risk of gestational diabetes: a systematic review and
    • Abstract: Aims Identifying women at high risk of developing gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a public health interest. This study aims to investigate the association between maternal height and risk of GDM through meta-analysis. Methods We retrieved the studies that assessed maternal height in relation to GDM. Pooled risk estimates of the included articles and their 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated using a fixed- or random-effects model. Subgroup analyses were conducted according to study design and study location. Quality of studies was determined using the Newcastle–Ottawa Scale. Publication bias was detected using the Egger’s and Begg’s tests. Results A total of 10 studies including 7 cohort and 3 cross-sectional studies with a total of 126,094 women were included for meta-analysis. Combined, each 5-cm increase in height was associated with about 20% reduction in risk of GDM [pooled odds ratio = 0.80, (95% CI 0.76, 0.85)]. The analysis revealed high heterogeneity between studies which dissolved after subgroup analysis by study design. This significant association did not differ between Asian and non-Asian populations. Egger’s and Begg’s tests showed little evidence of publication bias. Conclusions The present meta-analysis supports the conception that short stature is associated with GDM. Further studies of high quality are needed to confirm the findings.

  • Xanthine oxidoreductase activity correlates with vascular endothelial
           dysfunction in patients with type 1 diabetes
    • Abstract: Aims Xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) is an enzyme regulating uric acid synthesis and generation of reactive oxygen species. Several studies suggested relationship between XOR and atherosclerotic diseases; however, few previous studies have directly examined the relationship between XOR and vascular endothelial dysfunction in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between XOR activity and vascular endothelial function in patients with T1DM. Methods Seventy-one patients with T1DM participated in the study and underwent assessments, including plasma XOR activity and flow-mediated dilation (FMD), to measure vascular endothelial function. Results The natural logarithm value of XOR activity (ln-XOR) was 3.03 ± 0.99 pmol/h/mL, and FMD was 5.5% ± 2.4%. FMD was inversely and significantly correlated with ln-XOR (correlation coefficient: r = − 0.396, P < 0.001), UA (r = − 0.252, P = 0.034), and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) (r = − 0.414, P < 0.001). ln-XOR showed positive correlation with HbA1c (r = 0.292, P = 0.013), ALT (r = 0.658, P < 0.001), and ADMA (r = 0.363, P = 0.002). Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that ln-XOR (standard partial regression coefficient: β = − 0.254, P = 0.018) was an independent explanatory variable of FMD. Conclusions The results of this study showed for the first time that XOR activity is associated with glycemic control in patients with T1DM and that XOR activity is associated with vascular endothelial dysfunction.

  • Can internet search engine queries be used to diagnose diabetes'
           Analysis of archival search data
    • Abstract: Aims Diabetes is often diagnosed late. This study aimed to assess the possibility for earlier detection of diabetes from search data, using predictive models trained on large-scale data. Methods We extracted all English-language queries made by people in the USA to Bing during 1 year and identified queries containing symptoms of diabetes. We compared the ability of four different prediction models (linear regression, logistic regression, decision tree and random forest) to distinguish between users who stated that they were diagnosed with diabetes and users who did not refer to diabetes or diabetes drugs but queried about at least one of the symptoms. Results We identified 11,050 “new diabetes users” who stated they had been diagnosed with diabetes and approximately 11.5 million “control users” who queried about symptoms without querying for terms related to diabetes. Both the logistic regression and the random forest models were able to distinguish between the populations with an area under curve of 0.92 which translates to a positive predictive value of 56% at a false-positive rate of 1%. The model could identify patients up to 240 days before they mentioned being diagnosed. Conclusions Some undiagnosed diabetes patients can be detected accurately according to their symptom queries to a search engine. Such earlier diagnosis, especially in cases of type 1 diabetes, could be clinically meaningful. The ability of search engines to serve as a population-wide screening tool could potentially be improved using additional data provided by users.

  • Minimal effect of walking before dinner on glycemic responses in type 2
           diabetes: outcomes from the multi-site E-PAraDiGM study
    • Abstract: Aim To examine the effect of walking before dinner on 24-h glycemic control in individuals with type 2 diabetes using the standardized multi-site Exercise-Physical Activity and Diabetes Glucose Monitoring (E-PAraDiGM) Protocol. Methods Eighty participants were studied under two conditions (exercise vs. non-exercise control) separated by 72 h in a randomized crossover design. Each condition lasted 2 days during which standardized meals were provided. Exercise consisted of 50 min of treadmill walking at 5.0 km/h before the evening meal, while control involved 50 min of sitting. The primary outcome measure was mean glucose during the 24-h period following exercise (or sitting) measured by continuous glucose monitoring. Results Of the 80 participants who were initially randomized, 73 completed both exercise and control. Sixty-three participants [29 males, 34 females; age = 64 ± 8 years, body mass index = 30.5 ± 6.5 kg/m2 and HbA1c = 51 ± 8 mmol/mol (6.8 ± 0.7%), mean ± SD] complied with the standardized diets and had complete continuous glucose monitoring data. Exercise did not affect mean 24-h glucose compared to control (0.03 mmol/L; 95% CI − 0.17, 0.22, P = 0.778) but individual differences between conditions ranged from − 2.8 to +1.8 mmol/L. Exercise did not affect fasting glucose, postprandial glucose or glucose variability. Glucose concentrations measured by continuous glucose monitoring were reduced during the 50 min of walking in exercise compared to sitting in control (− 1.56 mmol/L; 95% CI − 2.18, − 0.95, p < 0.001). Conclusion Contrary to previous acute exercise studies, 50 min of walking before dinner in the E-PAraDiGM protocol did not affect 24-h glucose profiles. However, highly heterogeneous responses to exercise were observed. Trial registration: NCT02834689.

  • TRActional DIabetic reTInal detachment surgery with co-adjuvant
           intravitreal dexamethasONe implant: the TRADITION STUDY
    • Abstract: Aim Main failure of diabetic tractional retinal detachment (TRD) surgery is the development of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR), causing higher re-detachment rates. We investigated whether the use of dexamethasone (DEX) implant at the end of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with silicone oil tamponade might have an impact on these outcomes. Design Comparative, nonrandomized, retrospective study. Participants A total of 148 eyes from 148 patients that underwent PPV with silicone oil tamponade for diabetic TRD (with DEX implant, n = 52; without DEX implant, n = 96). Methods Consecutive patients’ records were reviewed for time between TRD diagnosis and surgery; lens status before surgery and after 6, 12, and 24 months; retina attachment rate after primary PPV; change in postoperative PVR severity; rate of re-detachment at 6, 12, and 24 months; use of IOP lowering treatment after 6, 12, and 24 months; surgery details; intra- and postoperative complications. Correlations between outcome measures, postoperative PVR severity, and re-detachment rates were analyzed. Main outcome measures Change in postoperative PVR severity and retinal re-detachment rates with and without the adjuvant use of DEX implant. Results Retinal re-detachment rates were significantly higher in the group of patients that did not receive DEX implant [11/96 (11.5%) vs. 0/52 (0%), p = 0.049; 11/84 (12.9%) vs. 4/52 (7.7%), p = 0.007; 14/71 (19.7%) vs. 5/52 (10%) p < 0.001 at 6, 12, and 24 months, respectively]. PVR severity correlated with retinal status at 12 and 24 months (p = 0.018 and p = 0.027, respectively). The difference in PVR severity between the two groups was statistically significant at 6, 12, and 24 months (p < 0.001). Conclusions DEX implant at the end of PPV in patients with diabetic TRD improves PVR severity and decreases re-detachment rates. This should be considered as an option in the customized treatment of TRD.

  • Metabolomic profile of diabetic retinopathy: a GC-TOFMS-based approach
           using vitreous and aqueous humor
    • Abstract: Aim To identify the potential metabolite markers in diabetic retinopathy (DR) by using gas chromatography coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC-TOFMS). Methods GC-TOFMS spectra were acquired from vitreous and aqueous humor (AH) samples of patients with DR and non-diabetic participants. Comparative analysis was used to elucidate the distinct metabolites of DR. Metabolic pathway was employed to explicate the metabolic reprogramming pathways involved in DR. Logistic regression and receiver-operating characteristic analyses were carried out to select and validate the biomarker metabolites and establish a therapeutic model. Results Comparative analysis showed a clear separation between disease and control groups. Eight differentiating metabolites from AH and 15 differentiating metabolites from vitreous were highlighted. Out of these 23 metabolites, 11 novel metabolites have not been detected previously. Pathway analysis identified nine pathways (three in AH and six in vitreous) as the major disturbed pathways associated with DR. The abnormal of gluconeogenesis, ascorbate–aldarate metabolism, valine–leucine–isoleucine biosynthesis, and arginine–proline metabolism might weigh the most in the development of DR. The AUC of the logistic regression model established by d-2,3-Dihydroxypropanoic acid, isocitric acid, fructose 6-phosphate, and l-Lactic acid in AH was 0.965. The AUC established by pyroglutamic acid and pyruvic acid in vitreous was 0.951. Conclusions These findings have expanded our understanding of identified metabolites and revealed for the first time some novel metabolites in DR. These results may provide useful information to explore the mechanism and may eventually allow the development of metabolic biomarkers for prognosis and novel therapeutic strategies for the management of DR.
