Aim: To investigate the pathophysiological role of different biomarkers in diabetic kidney disease (DKD) among normoalbuminuric patients with a low-estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Methods: In this cross-sectional study of 200...
Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) has been reported to be involved in the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and accelerates micro and macro vascular complication. The current study aimed to investigate serum Ang-2 levels in Saudi patients with type 2...
Screening for diabetic kidney disease (DKD) remains a challenge; however, there has been an ongoing research to investigate the diagnostic value of different biomarkers to identify DKD. The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic value of...
Aim:The aim of this study was to investigate the role of elevated glycated LDL (low-density lipoprotein) in the progression of diabetic kidney disease among type 2 diabetes (T2D) subjects. Materials and methods: This case-control observational study...
Inflammatory cytokine, adipokine and adhesion molecules are known to play a key role in pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease (DKD). In this study, our aim was to investigate the role of fetuin-A in relation with pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6,...
Objectives: This observational cross-sectional study aimed to investigate the relationship between serum Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) levels and cardiovascular (CVD) risk factors in drug controlled hypertensive diabetic subjects without cardiovascular...
The exponential increase in human population depicted by the recent population trend shows that every 15 years the world population would increase by at least 1 billion. Consequently, there is a large increase in the use of human biospecimens for...
Sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) is demonstrated to be decreased in subjects with metabolic syndrome (MetS). The aim of the present study was to investigate the association of SHBG in relation to MetS components among men with type 2 diabetes (...
Adiponectin and resistin are adipose tissue-derived proteins with antagonistic actions; adiponectin has insulin sensitive properties while resistin is involved in the development of insulin resistance. We analyzed adiponectin and resistin levels in...
