Molecular Pathogenesis of Modys: American Diabetes Association Symposium. Scottsdale, Ariz., Usa, November 6-8, 1998 (Frontiers in Diabetes)

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

A timely collection of research papers by 18 leading scientists in the area of biochemical genetics of diabetes mellitus, these contributions focus on a well defined class of monogenic forms of the disease (i.e. MODYs 1-5) all caused by specific mutations or deletion of genes that control pancreatic beta-cell functions: HNF-4alpha, glucokinase, HNF-1alpha, IDX-1 and HNF-1beta. This volume offers a historical perspective of MODYs, and it also contains contributions which deal with the fundamental questions of pancreas and liver development, critical for the understanding of the syndrome complex discussed. Attempts have been made to highlight results and concepts that may be relevant for understanding type-II diabetes in general, exemplified by contributions that connect the field of pancreatic islet cell biology and pathology with the newest findings in the area of insulin action, e.g. the role of the insulin receptor and insulin receptor substrates (IRS 1-3).

 

Depression and Diabetes (World Psychiatric Association)

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the multiple interrelationships between depression and various physical diseases. The WPA is providing an update of currently available evidence on these interrelationships by the publication of three books, dealing with the comorbidity of depression with diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Depression is a frequent and serious comorbid condition in diabetes, which adversely affects quality of life and the long-term prognosis. Co-occurrent depression presents peculiar clinical challenges, making both conditions harder to manage.

Depression and Diabetes is the first book devoted to the interaction between these common disorders. World leaders in diabetes, depression and public health synthesize current evidence, including some previously unpublished data, in a concise, easy-to-read format. They provide an overview of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, medical costs, management, and public health and cultural implications of the comorbidity between depression and diabetes. The book describes how the negative consequences of depression in diabetes could be avoided, given that effective depression treatments for diabetic patients are available.

Its practical approach makes the book ideal for all those involved in the management of these patients: psychiatrists, psychologists, diabetologists, general practitioners, diabetes specialist nurses and mental health nurses.

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

This text focuses on group differences in kidney dialysis. Patient characteristics, often demographic and unchangable, greatly effect the final outcome of the disease. For example, African Americans have a very high incidence of end-stage renal disease, but survive longest once on dialysis. This generalization also seems to hold true for Mexican Americans. The implications of these observations are great, as they place a burden on these ethnic societies and on the health delivery systems. Also these groups, along with native Americans, have lower transplantation rates. This observation has major economic and clinical implications. To compound this further, African Americans are at increased risk for graft loss due to multiple immunologic and non-immunologic factors.

 

Association of a polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin, a polychlorinated biphenyl, and DDT with diabetes in the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition … [An article from: Environmental Research]

This digital document is a journal article from Environmental Research, published by Elsevier in 2007. The article is delivered in HTML format and is available in your Amazon.com Media Library immediately after purchase. You can view it with any web browser.

Description:
The association of a polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin, a polychlorinated biphenyl, and p,p’-DDT with diabetes was evaluated using the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Persons 20 years old and older were included. Relationships with diagnosed diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes (glycohemoglobin (HbA1c) >6.1%), and total diabetes (diagnosed plus undiagnosed) were tested. When all three chemicals were evaluated together for total diabetes, the unweighted number of participants was 1830. All three compounds were significantly associated with diagnosed diabetes. PCB 126 and p,p’-DDT were significantly associated with undiagnosed diabetes. 1,2,3,6,7,8-hexachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (HxCDD) was not associated with undiagnosed diabetes. When the three chemicals were included in a combined model for total diabetes, PCB 126>83.8pg/g lipid adjusted had an odds ratio of 2.57 (95% CI 1.33-4.95) compared to PCB 126=26.6ng/g lipid adjusted with an odds ratio of 2.74 (95% CI 1.44-5.23) both compared to p,p’-DDT=<20.7ng/g lipid adjusted. HxCDD was not associated with total diabetes in a combined model. When participants with poor liver function and poor kidney function were removed from the analysis, the combined model for total diabetes produced similar results with PCB 126 and p,p'-DDT having been significantly associated, and HxCDD not having been associated. These findings add to the list of chemicals found to be associated with diabetes in the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

While fancy and sophisticated foods continue to grow in popularity, ask most people what their favorite foods are and the answer will invariably be classic comfort foods: lasagna, meat loaf, mac and cheese, and cake. Unfortunately, most people think that having diabetes means the days of enjoying these hearty classics are long gone, and that their favorite foods are a thing of the past. Author Robyn Webb shows that healthy eating doesn’t have to mean giving up on favorite foods! Diabetes can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t mean reinventing the wheel when it comes to cooking. Just a tweak here and there and familiar foods can remain favorites, guilt-free, and enjoyed every day.

The American Diabetes Association Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook creates a “go-to” collection of updated comfort foods for families that need to cook nutritionally sound and diabetic-friendly meals that will satisfy and soothe the souls of the member (or members) of the family with diabetes—and do the same for the rest of the family. No need to cook two meals to please everyone in the household. Now everyone can enjoy the same hearty and nutritious meals. This book will ease the stress of planning meals by offering easy and flavorful recipes and a menu planning guide that allows for mix and match meals that will keep everyone in the family happy, healthy, and satisfied.

Filled with gorgeous original photography and a beautiful four-color design, this cookbook will look as good as it’s meals. Sprinkled with helpful tips and time-saving advice, The American Diabetes Association Comfort Food Cookbook will not only make classic comfort foods healthier and diabetes friendly, it will make them a snap to prepare as well.

Following a diabetic meal plan doesn’t have to be a flavorless chore. Now everyone can enjoy the classic foods they know and love!
