Effect of selenium supplementation on musculoskeletal health in older women: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Lancet Healthy Longev 2021 Apr;2(4):e212-e221

Mellanby Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, University of Sheffield, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, UK.

Background: Observational and preclinical studies show associations between selenium status, bone health, and physical function. Most adults in Europe have serum selenium below the optimum range. We hypothesised that selenium supplementation could reduce pro-resorptive actions of reactive oxygen species on osteoclasts and improve physical function. Read More

The Relationship between the Concentration of Magnesium and the Presence of Depressive Symptoms and Selected Metabolic Disorders among Men over 50 Years of Age.

Life (Basel) 2021 Mar 3;11(3). Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Department of Medical Rehabilitation and Clinical Physiotherapy, Pomeranian Medical University, 70-210 Szczecin, Poland.

Background: changes in the concentration of magnesium influence numerous processes in the body, such as hormone and lipid metabolism, nerve conduction, a number of biochemical pathways in the brain, and metabolic cycles. As a result, changes in magnesium concentration may contribute to the emergence of such pathologies as depressive and metabolic disorders, including hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia.

Methods: blood samples were taken from 342 men whose mean age was 61. Read More

Department of Gynecological Surgery and Gynecological Oncology of Adults and Adolescents, Pomeranian Medical University, Al. Powstańców Wielkopolskich 72, 70-111 Szczecin, Poland.

Endometrial cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed gynecological neoplasms in developed countries and its incidence is rising. Usually, it is diagnosed in the early stages of the disease and has a good prognosis; however, in later stages, the rate of recurrence reaches up to 60%. The discrepancy in relapse rates is due to the heterogeneity of the group related to the presence of prognostic factors affecting survival parameters. Read More

J Crit Care 2021 Mar 23;64:62-67. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Neurology, Brown University, Alpert Medical School, Providence, RI, USA.

Purpose: To examine associations between physiologic stress and delirium in the setting of a direct neurologic injury.

Materials And Methods: We obtained initial neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), glucose, and troponin in consecutive non-comatose patients with non-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) over 1 year, then used multivariable regression models to determine associations between each biomarker and incident delirium. Delirium diagnoses were established using DSM-5-based methods, with exploratory analyses further categorizing delirium as first occurring <24 h ("early-onset") or > 24 h after presentation ("later-onset").

Body composition in term offspring after maternal gestational diabetes does not predict postnatal hypoglycemia.

BMC Pediatr 2021 Mar 6;21(1):111. Epub 2021 Mar 6.

Department of Neonatology, University Children's Hospital, Eberhard Karls University, Calwerstr. 7, 72076, Tuebingen, Germany.

Background: Offspring of mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have an increased risk of neonatal complications like birth trauma due to macrosomia or postnatal hypoglycemia, as well as long-term metabolic sequelae. Neonatal body composition may be a sensitive marker of metabolic effects on the fetus caused by suboptimal glycemic control during pregnancy.

Objective: To determine body composition in offspring of mothers with GDM compared to a reference cohort of healthy term neonates and to assess whether increased body fat would be associated with postnatal hypoglycemia. Read More

Monitoring the Impact of Aggressive Glycemic Intervention during Critical Care after Cardiac Surgery with a Glycemic Expert System for Nurse-Implemented Euglycemia: The MAGIC GENIE Project.

J Diabetes Sci Technol 2021 Mar;15(2):251-264

Division of Endocrinology, Medicine Service Line, VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

A novel, multi-dimensional protocol named GENIE has been in use for intensive insulin therapy (IIT, target glucose <140 mg/dL) in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU) after open heart surgery (OHS) at VA Pittsburgh since 2005. Despite concerns over increased mortality from IIT after the publication of the NICE-SUGAR Trial, it remains in use, with ongoing monitoring under the MAGIC GENIE Project showing that GENIE performance over 12 years (2005-2016) aligns with the current consensus that IIT with target blood glucose (BG) <140 mg/dL is advisable only if it does not provoke severe hypoglycemia (SH). Two studies have been conducted to monitor glucometrics and outcomes during GENIE use in the SICU. Read More

A beneficial cardiometabolic health profile associated with dietary supplement use: A cross-sectional study.

Int J Vitam Nutr Res 2021 Mar 1:1-11. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University, Boston, MA, USA.

As a follow-up to an earlier study demonstrating healthier cardiometabolic profiles among long-term multiple dietary supplement (LTMDS) users, we examined if cardiometabolic health benefits associated with LTMDS use persisted with aging. The study is based on LTMDS users from North America and 2007-2010 NHANES participants who were used for comparison to the LTMDS users. NHANES subjects were classified as non-dietary supplement (NS) users, single supplement/single purpose supplement (SS) users, multivitamin/mineral supplement (MVMS) users, and multiple dietary supplement (MDS) users.

Clinical and metabolomic predictors of regression to normoglycemia in a population at intermediate cardiometabolic risk.

Cardiovasc Diabetol 2021 Feb 27;20(1):56. Epub 2021 Feb 27.

Clinical and Translational Epidemiology Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital, 100 Cambridge, Boston, MA, USA.

Background: Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) is a prevalent and potentially reversible intermediate stage leading to type 2 diabetes that increases risk for cardiometabolic complications. The identification of clinical and molecular factors associated with the reversal, or regression, from IFG to a normoglycemia state would enable more efficient cardiovascular risk reduction strategies. The aim of this study was to identify clinical and biological predictors of regression to normoglycemia in a non-European population characterized by high rates of type 2 diabetes. Read More

The Postnatal Offspring of Finasteride-Treated Male Rats Shows Hyperglycaemia, Elevated Hepatic Glycogen Storage and Altered GLUT2, IR, and AR Expression in the Liver.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Jan 27;22(3). Epub 2021 Jan 27.

Department of Histology and Embryology, Pomeranian Medical University (PMU), Powstańców Wlkp. 72 Avene, 70-111 Szczecin, Poland.

Background: A growing body of data indicates that the physiology of the liver is sex-hormone dependent, with some types of liver failure occurring more frequently in males, and some in females. In males, in physiological conditions, testosterone acts via androgen receptors (AR) to increase insulin receptor (IR) expression and glycogen synthesis, and to decrease glucose uptake controlled by liver-specific glucose transporter 2 (GLUT-2). Our previous study indicated that this mechanism may be impaired by finasteride, a popular drug used in urology and dermatology, inhibiting 5α-reductase 2, which converts testosterone (T) into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
