Sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors are a novel class of oral hypoglycemic agents commonly prescribed in type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). They have been shown to slow the progression of diabetic nephropathy and to improve cardiovascular outcomes in high-risk individuals, although major cardiovascular and renal outcome clinical trials have excluded renal transplant patients. The aim of this review was to determine the outcomes and the safety of the use of SGLT2 inhibitors in renal transplant patients with diabetes.
To examine the impact of the 2016 Canadian lipid guidelines on daily practice at a community hospital. More specifically, to examine the use of 1) alternate lipid targets when triglyceride (TG) levels are high, and 2) non-fasting lipid testing.
To characterize clinical associations between peripheral blood immune populations and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) in persons with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
This research is the first study that aims to evaluate familial aggregation, heritability, and inheritance mode of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Tehran Lipid Glucose Study (TLGS) participants as a representative sample for the Iranian population.
For many First Nations individuals with diabetes, they experience their illness in the context of their cultural beliefs and a distinct historico-political reality. This study explores the possible role for traditional medicine in the treatment of diabetes
Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is a serious complication in kidney transplant recipients (KTR) due to its negative impact on graft and patient survival. Although reported in 3-20% of pediatric KTR, it is not characterized as well as in adults. This study describes the incidence and risk factors associated with the development of PTDM in pediatric KTR.
To explore the risk factors of kidney disease in Chinese men and women with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and analyze the relationship between obesity and the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Adolescence and emerging adulthood is associated with inadequate medical follow-up, sub-optimal glycemic control and higher risk for adverse outcomes.
This study examined the indirect effects of anxiety on A1c via automatic negative thinking and diabetes distress among adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) during the follow-up interval of a randomized controlled trial of an intervention targeting resilience promotion/depression prevention.
The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of self-management of feet for patients with diabetes from the perspective of the patient, support person and health-care provider.
Our aim in this study was to describe screening outcomes and sociodemographic characteristics of patients in an urban tele-ophthalmology screening program for diabetic retinopathy (DR).
Health-related quality of life (HRQL) in type 1 diabetes is a critical health outcome but has not been studied in many low-income countries. In this study we evaluated the validity of 2 HRQL instruments, measured the HRQL and explored the association between HRQL and glycemic control.
Mixed methods were used to evaluate a group self-management education intervention to address type 1 diabetes (T1D)-specific barriers to physical activity (PA). We evaluated the acceptability of study resources and procedures.
Objective: The goal of this quality initiative was to develop consensus standards for glycemic management of patients with diabetes who undergo surgical procedures in Canada.
