  • Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonists and reversal of
           vascular degeneration through DNA repair, a step toward drug-induced
           regenerative medicine
    • Authors: Afdal; Peter; Ismail, Habiba-Allah; Ashraf, Mirette; Hafez, Nada; Nasry, Nardine; Hafez, Nouran; Youssef, Nourhan; Samy, Nourhan; Saeed, Rana; AbdelMassih, Antoine Fakhry
      Abstract: Endothelial dysfunction with subsequent degeneration and vasoocclusive remodeling is the hallmark of many cardiovascular disorders including pulmonary vascular disease (PVD). To date, the available treatments slows disease progression but does not prevent deterioration. Reversing such pathologies would spare many patients risky surgeries and long waiting lists for a possible organ donor. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonists were first introduced as sole insulin sensitizers, however, there is increasing body of evidence that they have different actions on DNA which might help reverse vascular degeneration. This effect appears to be mainly achieved through enhancement of DNA damage responses (DDR). The aforementioned effect could offer new insights about repurposing drugs for achieving organ or tissue regeneration, an understudied field named drug-induced regenerative medicine.

  • Pathogenesis and remission of type 2 diabetes: what has the twin cycle
           hypothesis taught us'
    • Authors: Al-Mrabeh; Ahmad
      Abstract: imageType 2 diabetes has been regarded a complex multifactorial disease that lead to serious health complications including high cardiovascular risks. The twin cycle hypothesis postulated that both hepatic insulin resistance and dysfunction rather than death of beta (β) cell determine diabetes onset. Several studies were carried out to test this hypothesis, and all demonstrated that chronic excess calorie intake and ectopic fat accumulation within the liver and pancreas are fundamental to the development of this disease. However, these recent research advances cannot determine the exact cause of this disease. In this review, the major factors that contribute to the pathogenesis and remission of type 2 diabetes will be outlined. Importantly, the effect of disordered lipid metabolism, characterized by altered hepatic triglyceride export will be discussed. Additionally, the observed changes in pancreas morphology in type 2 diabetes will be highlighted and discussed in relation to β cell function.

  • The systemic implication of novel non-statin therapies in cardiovascular
           diabetology: PCSK9 as a case model
    • Authors: Nashawi; Mouhamed; Sheikh, Omar; Mir, Mahnoor; Te, Tri; Chilton, Robert
      Abstract: imagePCSK9, like other novel non-statin drugs were primarily developed to help patients achieve low-density lipoprotein cholesterol targets, especially in patients with dyslipidemia not achieving lipid goals with statins due to poor tolerance or inadequate response. PCSK9 inhibitors, in addition to modulating lipid metabolism, improve mortality outcomes in cardiovascular disease. These benefits are markedly pronounced in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, these benefits do not come without associated risk. Multiple trials, studies, and case reports have attempted to explain observed outcomes with PCSK9 expression and administration of PCSK9 inhibitors from multiple perspectives, such as their effects on insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance, changes in renal physiology, thyroid physiology, vascular tone, intestinal regulation of lipids, and improved cardiovascular function. These agents represent an opportunity for physicians to exercise prudence by using appropriate clinical judgement when managing comorbidities in the hyperglycemic patient, a concept that extends to other novel non-statin drugs.

  • Clinical presentation of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia:
           evaluation of usual and unusual symptoms
    • Authors: Yetkin; Ertan; Ozturk, Selcuk; Cuglan, Bilal; Turhan, Hasan
      Abstract: imageObjective Clinical presentation of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia may vary from asymptomatic occurrence or mild perception of palpitation to severe chest pain or syncope. This variation is the most challenging issue in the diagnostic evaluation of rhythm disturbances and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia as well. This study sought to evaluate the symptoms during the tachycardia attack or index event in patients who underwent electrophysiological study and ablation procedure.Methods This retrospective study included 100 consecutive patients who underwent electrophysiological study and ablation procedures due to supraventricular tachycardia. Structural heart disease, moderate/severe valvular pathology, systemic pathologies, such as connective tissue disease and chronic obstructive lung disease, history of pacemaker implantation was defined as exclusion criteria. In addition, medically managed patients and patients with unsuccessful ablation were not included in the study.Results Palpitation was the most frequently observed symptom in 84% of patients, followed by chest pain in 47%, dyspnea in 38%, syncope 26%, lightheadedness in 19%, and sweating in 18% of the patients. The most common symptoms after tachycardia event were fatigue and lightheadedness with frequencies of 56% and 55%, respectively. Forty-five percent of the patients reported more than one, unusually frequent urination within the following 1–3 hours after the index event.Conclusions Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia might manifest itself as gastrointestinal, neurological, psychosomatic symptoms, and unusual complaints in association with or without main symptoms, including palpitation, chest pain, syncope, and dyspnea. Symptoms after tachycardia or index event should be questioned systematically.

      Abstract: imageBackground Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a global health tissue. We determined factors relating to the likelihood of developing T2DM in normal BMI individuals.Methodology This was a cross-sectional community-based representative survey, of people aged ≥20 years in Pakistan, using HBA1c as the screening tool. The prevalence of T2DM/prediabetes in people having normal BMI together with associated risk factors was estimated.Results Of 6824 normal BMI individuals, there was still a high prevalence of T2DM 14.92% and in underweight at 10.14% (overall prevalence 16.96%). Corresponding rates for prediabetes for the normal BMI category: 9.79% and underweight 8.99%. Multivariate logistic regression modeling for normal BMI individuals, showed a significantly increased risk of T2DM with increasing age (odds ratio [OR] 2.1, 3.3, 4.5 and 4.8, P

  • Revisiting the pathogenic role of insulin resistance in Duchenne muscular
           dystrophy cardiomyopathy subphenotypes
    • Authors: AbdelMassih; Antoine Fakhry; Esmail, Reem; Zekri, Hanan; Kharabish, Ahmed; ElKhashab, Khaled; Menshawey, Rahma; Ismail, Habiba-Allah; Afdal, Peter; Farid, Erini; Affifi, Omneya
      Abstract: imageIntroduction Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is known to impact the subepicardial layer of the myocardium through chronic inflammation. Recent animal studies have shown predominant subendocardial involvement in rats with DMD. The primary outcome parameter was to determine by cardiovascular MRI (CMR) if two differential patterns of myocardial involvements exist in DMD; the secondary outcome parameters were to correlate the observed pattern with metabolic markers such as insulin resistance measures.Methods Forty patients with DMD were screened using CMR to determine which of them had predominantly subendocardial dysfunction (SENDO group), or subepicardial/midmyocardial involvement (SEPMI group). Patients were subjected to body mass index measurement, serum creatinine kinase, serum lactate dehydrogenase enzyme, fasting glucose-insulin ratio (FGIR), full lipid profile, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), left ventricle E/E´ ratio (the ratio of early mitral inflow velocity to average early diastolic velocities of the basal septum and mitral annulus) for left ventricle diastolic function, and myocardial layer strain discriminating echocardiography (MLSD-STE). Results: 26 patients displayed SENDO while 34 displayed SEPMI. SENDO group displayed overt insulin resistance; (FGIR (SENDO: 7 ± 1 vs. SEPMI: 5 ± 1, P

  • The FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system: how it has improved
    • Authors: Yadegarfar; Ghasem; Anderson, Simon G.; Khawaja, Zohaib; Cortes, Gabriela; Leivesley, Kathryn; Metters, Ann; Horne, Linda; Steele, Tom; Heald, Adrian H.
      Abstract: imageIntroduction Many people with type 1 diabetes continue to run high HbA1c levels with associated elevated risk of cardiovascular events and increased mortality. We describe here how use of the FreeStyle Libre flash monitor has improved the glycaemic control of many people with type 1 diabetes where the new technology has been intensively deployed.Methods We report the outcomes of 92 consecutive adults (18 years of age or more) with type 1 diabetes who have begun using the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitor in East Cheshire, UK. Initiation was with education and support from one of the diabetes specialist nurses. An HbA1c of 60 mmol/mol (7.6%) was taken as the threshold for suboptimal glycaemic control.Results The mean cohort age was 43 years for men and 39 years for women (overall range 17–83 years). In 92 consecutive users, HbA1c decreased by an average of 10.7 mmol/mol (0.98%) after 3 months, and by 16.1 mmol/mol (1.47%) after 6 months. There was also a narrowing of the distribution of HbA1c, with many fewer people running high HbA1c ≥80 mmol/mol (9.5%). After the 6-month follow-up, two 2/92 users did not wish to continue with the monitoring.Conclusion Flash glucose monitoring has great potential for the management of type 1 diabetes in the adult population and improving metabolic control/quality of life for people across the world. The technology provides significantly more data than the intermittent results obtained by traditional subcutaneous blood glucose monitoring, which may not capture intervals of extreme variability or nocturnal events.

  • Relationship between a single measurement at baseline of body mass index,
           glycated hemoglobin, and the risk of mortality and cardiovascular
           morbidity in type 2 diabetes mellitus
    • Authors: Brown; Oliver; Costanzo, Pierluigi; Clark, Andrew L.; Condorelli, Gianluigi; Cleland, John G.F.; Sathyapalan, Thozhukat; Hepburn, David; Kilpatrick, Eric S.; Atkin, Stephen L.
      Abstract: imageObjective This study aims to evaluate the relationship between a single measurement at baseline of body mass index (BMI), glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and subsequent clinical outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).Method Patients with T2DM were recruited from an outpatient diabetes clinic in a single large teaching hospital in Kingston upon Hull, UK. At baseline, demographics and HbA1c were recorded. Patients were categorized by BMI: normal weight (18.5–24.9 kg/m2), overweight (25–29.9 kg/m2), and obese (>30 kg/m2). Multivariable Cox regression models that included demographic, risk factors, and comorbidities were separately constructed for all-cause, cardiovascular, cancer and sepsis-related mortality, using four groups of HbA1c (8%).Results In total, 6220 patients with T2DM (median age 62 years, 54% male) were followed for a median of 10.6 years. HbA1c levels>8.0% were associated with increased risk of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular death. However, this increased risk was not consistent across the weight categories and reached statistical significance only in overweight patients (BMI 25–29.9 kg/m2).Conclusions In a large cohort of patients with T2DM elevated HbA1c levels at baseline did not consistently predict increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality across the different BMI categories.

  • Estimating life years lost to diabetes: outcomes from analysis of National
           Diabetes Audit and Office of National Statistics data
    • Authors: Heald; Adrian H.; Stedman, Mike; Davies, Mark; Livingston, Mark; Alshames, Ramadan; Lunt, Mark; Rayman, Gerry; Gadsby, Roger
      Abstract: imageWith sustained growth of diabetes numbers, sustained patient engagement is essential. Using nationally available data, we have shown that the higher mortality associated with a diagnosis of T1DM/T2DM could produces loss of 6.4 million future life years in the current UK population. In the model, the ‘average’ person with T1DM (age 42.8 years) has a life expectancy from now of 32.6 years, compared to 40.2 years in the equivalent age non diabetes mellitus population, corresponding to lost life years (LLYs) of 7.6 years/average person. The ‘average’ person with T2DM (age 65.4 years) has a life expectancy from now of 18.6 years compared to the 20.3 years for the equivalent non diabetes mellitus population, corresponding to LLY of 1.7 years/average person. We estimate that for both T1DM and T2DM, one year with HbA1c>58 mmol/mol loses around 100 life days. Linking glycaemic control to mortality has the potential to focus minds on effective engagement with therapy and lifestyle recommendation adherence.

  • A 78-year-old male with inferior ST-segment elevation on
           electrocardiogram, diabetic ketoacidosis and acute pancreatitis
    • Authors: Ho; Jamie S.Y.; Mui, Bryan; Sia, Ching-Hui; Djohan, Andie H.; Mok, Shao-Feng; Chan, Mark Y.; Ambhore, Anand A.
      Abstract: imageA 78-year-old male presented with shortness of breath, metabolic acidosis, severe hyperglycaemia and ketonemia. Inferior ST-elevation was present on 12-lead ECG with raised troponin I, but coronary arteries were normal on emergency cardiac catheterization. Despite no previous history of diabetes mellitus and normal HbA1c levels 7 months prior, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) was diagnosed, complicated by subsequent shock. The underlying cause was acute pancreatic disease, supported by elevated pancreatic enzyme levels and a history of chronic heavy alcohol use. There are no previous reports, to our knowledge, of patients with acute pancreatitis presenting to the ED with secondary DKA mimicking STEMI.
