- Assessment of correlation of microcirculation parameters and secretion of c-peptide in diabetic patients. Suchkova (Makeeva), O. V. // Proceedings of the Physiological Society;2013, p754P
The growing incidence of the overweight has an enormous impact on increasing the risk of impaired glycemic control or insulin resistance and peripheral vascular disease. Often the problem of diagnosing errors lies in the development of contrinsular reactions in response to hyperinsulinism. The...
- Circulating plasma cortisol concentrations are not associated with coronary artery disease or peripheral vascular disease. R.M. Reynolds; B. Ilyas; J.F. Price; F.G.R. Fowkes; D.E. Newby; D.J. Webb; B.R. Walker // QJM: An International Journal of Medicine;Jul2009, Vol. 102 Issue 7, p469
Background: Although the prevalence of cardiovascular disease is declining, the obesity epidemic with associated metabolic syndrome may reverse this trend. Hypothalamicâ€“pituitaryâ€“adrenal (HPA) axis activation may underlie the metabolic syndrome, but whether circulating cortisol...
