Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and Risk of Macro- and Microvascular Complications in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes.

J Clin Med 2022 Feb 12;11(4). Epub 2022 Feb 12.

Endocrinology and Nutrition Unit, Segovia General Hospital, 40002 Segovia, Spain.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is considered the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome. To date, NAFLD is the most frequent chronic liver disease seen day by day in clinical practice across most high-income countries, affecting nearly 25-30% of adults in the general population and up to 70% of patients with T2DM. Over the last few decades, it clearly emerged that NAFLD is a "multisystemic disease" and that the leading cause of death among patients with NAFLD is cardiovascular disease (CVD). Read More

Exploring the Therapeutic Potential of Targeting Purinergic and Orexinergic Receptors in Alcoholic Neuropathy.

Neurotox Res 2022 Apr 26;40(2):646-669. Epub 2022 Jan 26.

Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, University of Oradea, Oradea, Romania.

Alcoholic neuropathy emerges following the persistent alcohol imbibing, and triggers nerve damage through de-escalating the receptors situated in the central nervous system (CNS), which consecutively evolves into debilitating neuropathic state and further precipitates hyperalgesia, allodynia, dysesthesia, ataxia, numbness, immobility, and decline in certain body functions. Existing pharmacotherapy, such as anticonvulsants (gabapentin and topiramate), and antidepressant drugs (duloxetine, and venlafaxine) render short-lasting benefits; however, their continual use is not favoured nowadays because of their detrimental outcomes and habit-forming behaviour. Consequently, the research is being shifted towards exploring novel propitious targets which entirely assist in the cessation of the disease. Read More

Alcohol Consumption as a Causator and/or an Accelerator of Neuropathy in People With Diabetes Is Regularly Overlooked.

Diabetes Ther 2021 Oct 19;12(10):2631-2634. Epub 2021 Aug 19.

Grandview Endocrinology, Grandview Medical Group, 3525 Independence Dr, Homewood, AL, 35209, USA.

Patients with diabetes and distal symmetrical polyneuropathy (DSP) are routinely evaluated for etiologies other than diabetes, including vitamin B12 deficiency, paraproteinemia, hypothyroidism and drug or autoimmune-induced neuropathy. However, the most common cause of DSP, next to that of diabetes, is alcohol intake, which is almost never evaluated. In addition to assessment of alcohol intake based on patient history, which often leads to an underestimation of alchohol intake, markers of a high alcohol intake (elevated liver enzymes, uric acid, triglycerides, low magnesium or low folic acid levels) should be obtained.

Biofactors 2021 Jul 26;47(4):522-550. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Wörwag Pharma GmbH & Co. KG, Böblingen, Germany.

The present demographic changes toward an aging society caused a rise in the number of senior citizens and the incidence and burden of age-related diseases (such as cardiovascular diseases [CVD], cancer, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease [NAFLD], diabetes mellitus, and dementia), of which nearly half is attributable to the population ≥60 years of age. Deficiencies in individual nutrients have been associated with increased risks for age-related diseases and high intakes and/or blood concentrations with risk reduction. Nutrition in general and the dietary intake of essential and nonessential biofactors is a major determinant of human health, the risk to develop age-related diseases, and ultimately of mortality in the older population.

Spectrum of esophageal motility disorders in patients with liver cirrhosis.

World J Hepatol 2020 Dec;12(12):1158-1167

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC 29401, United States.

Disorders of esophageal motility have been described in patients with cirrhosis in a small number of studies. In this review, we aim to provide an overview of the available evidence on esophageal motility disorders in cirrhosis and their clinical implications. This review delves into the following concepts: (1) Gastroesophageal reflux disease is common in liver cirrhosis due to many mechanisms; however, when symptomatic it is usually nocturnal and has an atypical presentation; (2) Endoscopic band ligation is better than sclerotherapy in terms of its effect on esophageal motility and seems to correct dysmotilities resulting from the mechanical effect of esophageal varices; (3) Chronic alcoholism has no major effects on esophageal motility activity other than lower esophageal sphincter hypertension among those with alcoholic autonomic neuropathy; (4) An association between primary biliary cholangitis and scleroderma can be present and esophageal hypomotility is not uncommon in this scenario; and (5) Cyclosporin-based immunosuppression in liver transplant patients can have a neurotoxic effect on the esophageal myenteric plexus leading to reversible achalasia-like manifestations.
