Reduced O-GlcNAcylation and Tubular Hypoxia Contribute to the Antifibrotic Effect of SGLT2 Inhibitor Dapagliflozin in the Diabetic Kidney

Diabetic kidney disease is a worldwide epidemic, and therapies are incomplete. Clinical data suggest that improved renal outcomes by Na+-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2i) are partly beyond their antihyperglycemic effects; however, the mechanisms are still elusive. Here, we investigated the …

Markers of Collagen Formation and Degradation Reflect Renal Function and Predict Adverse Outcomes in Patients With Type 1 Diabetes.

OBJECTIVE:
Patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) have a higher risk of developing chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular events (CVEs), and mortality than the general population. We hypothesized that two previously published biomarkers, namely PRO-C6, a biomarker of collagen type VI formation, and C3…

Future detection and monitoring of diabetes may entail analysis of both β-cell function and volume: how markers of β-cell loss may assist

Disease heterogeneity is as major issue in Type II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM), and this patient inter-variability might not be sufficiently reflected by measurements of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c).Β-cell dysfunction and β-cell death are initiating factors in development of T2DM. In fact, β-cells are …
