Angiotensin II up-regulates sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 expression and SGLT2 inhibitor attenuates Ang II-induced hypertensive renal injury in mice.

Clin Sci (Lond) 2021 Apr;135(7):943-961

Département de Médecine, Université de Montréal, Centre de recherche du Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal (CRCHUM), Tour Viger-Pavillon R, 900 Saint Denis Street, Montréal, Quebec H2X 0A9, Canada.

Clinical trials indicate that sodium/glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors (SGLT2i) improve kidney function, yet, the molecular regulation of SGLT2 expression is incompletely understood. Here, we investigated the role of the intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) on SGLT2 expression. In adult non-diabetic participants in the Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network (NEPTUNE, n=163), multivariable linear regression analysis showed SGLT2 mRNA was significantly associated with angiotensinogen (AGT), renin, and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) mRNA levels (P<0.

Effect of Correction of Hyperthyroidism with Anti-thyroid Drugs on the Glycated Hemoglobin in Non-diabetic Patients with Primary Hyperthyroidism.

Int J Endocrinol Metab 2021 Jan 19;19(1):e105751. Epub 2021 Jan 19.

Department of Pathology, Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences, Tirupati, India.

Background: Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels are dependent not only on the average blood glucose levels over the preceding 2 - 3 months but also on the turnover of erythrocytes. Hyperthyroidism is known to be associated with an increase in erythrocyte turnover that may falsely lower the HbA1c in relation to the level of glycemia.

Objectives: To assess the impact of medical correction of hyperthyroidism on HbA1c, independent of changes in the fasting plasma glucose and 2-hour post-oral glucose tolerance test plasma glucose. Read More

The hepatokine fetuin-A disrupts functional maturation of pancreatic beta cells.

Diabetologia 2021 Mar 25. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Institute for Diabetes Research and Metabolic Diseases of the Helmholtz Center Munich at the Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen (IDM), Tuebingen, Germany.

Aims/hypothesis: Neonatal beta cells carry out a programme of postnatal functional maturation to achieve full glucose responsiveness. A partial loss of the mature phenotype of adult beta cells may contribute to a reduction of functional beta cell mass and accelerate the onset of type 2 diabetes. We previously found that fetuin-A, a hepatokine increasingly secreted by the fatty liver and a determinant of type 2 diabetes, inhibits glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) of human islets.

Disentangling the relationship between bone turnover and glucose homeostasis: A prospective, population-based twin study.

Bone Rep 2021 Jun 5;14:100752. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

Department of Endocrinology, Odense University Hospital, Denmark.

Background: Biochemical markers of bone turnover are lower in patients with type 2 diabetes, which may be explained by genetic variants being associated with type 2 diabetes and bone turnover as well as environmental factors. We hypothesized that bone turnover markers associate with and predict changes in glucose homeostasis after control for genetics and shared environment.

Methods: 1071 healthy, non-diabetic (at baseline, 1997-2000) adult mono- and dizygotic twins participating in the prospective study GEMINAKAR were reassessed between 2010 and 2012 with clinical evaluation, biochemical tests and oral glucose tolerance test. Read More

Fasting glucose, bone area and bone mineral density: a Mendelian randomisation study.

Diabetologia 2021 Mar 2. Epub 2021 Mar 2.

Department of Surgical Sciences, Orthopaedics, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden.

Aims/hypothesis: Observational studies indicate that type 2 diabetes mellitus and fasting glucose levels are associated with a greater risk for hip fracture, smaller bone area and higher bone mineral density (BMD). However, these findings may be biased by residual confounding and reverse causation. Mendelian randomisation (MR) utilises genetic variants as instruments for exposures in an attempt to address these biases. Read More

World J Gastroenterol 2021 Feb;27(6):523-533

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, BronxCare Health System, Bronx, NY 10457, United States.

Background: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have an intricate bidirectional relationship. Individuals with T2DM, not only have a higher prevalence of non-alcoholic steatosis, but also carry a higher risk of progression to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Experts still differ in their recommendations of screening for NAFLD among patients with T2DM. Read More

Plasma lipocalin-2/NGAL is stable over 12 weeks and is not modulated by exercise or dieting.

Sci Rep 2021 Feb 18;11(1):4056. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Hypertension Research Laboratory, School of Biological Sciences, Faculty of Science, Monash University, 25 Rainforest Walk, Melbourne, Clayton, VIC, 3800, Australia.

Amongst other immune cells, neutrophils play a key role in systemic inflammation leading to cardiovascular disease and can release inflammatory factors, including lipocalin-2 (LCN2). LCN2 drives cardiac hypertrophy and plays a role in maladaptive remodelling of the heart and has been associated with renal injury. While lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise are known to attenuate low-grade inflammation, their ability to modulate plasma LCN2 levels is unknown. Read More

Kidney function and markers of renal damage after renal denervation. Does method of measurement matter? The Reshape CV-Risk Study.

J Clin Hypertens (Greenwich) 2021 Feb 16. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Clinical Cardiovascular Research Group, UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway.

Data suggest that renal denervation (RDN) in treatment-resistant hypertension (TRHT) is safe in terms of renal function. However, most studies report kidney function as creatinine-based estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), which may be biased by non-renal factors. Damage markers other than albuminuria have never been evaluated after RDN. Read More

Increased Sestrin3 Contributes to Post-ischemic Seizures in the Diabetic Condition.

Front Neurosci 2020 15;14:591207. Epub 2021 Jan 15.

Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, United States.

Seizures are among the most common neurological sequelae of stroke, and diabetes notably increases the incidence of post-ischemic seizures. Recent studies have indicated that Sestrin3 (SESN3) is a regulator of a proconvulsant gene network in human epileptic hippocampus. But the association of SESN3 and post-ischemic seizures in diabetes remains unclear. Read More
