Recent reports have demonstrated the association between type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and increased morbidity and mortality rates during coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infection, setting a priority of these patients for vaccination. Impaired innate and adaptive immunity observed in T1DM seem to play a major role. Severe, life-threatening COVID-19 disease is characterized by the excessive release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, known as a "cytokine storm". Patients with T1DM present elevated le...

Abstract Aims Prevalence and risk factors of pre-symptomatic left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) in individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) have not been adequately studied. The present cross-sectional study assessed the prevalence of early LVSD in asymptomatic patients with type 1 diabetes and investigated potential risk factors. Methods Consecutive patients with T1D, free of cardiovascular disease and significant evident microvascular complications were examined. LVSD was assessed by s...

Abstract Lifestyle modification including healthy diet is of paramount importance in the management of diabetes mellitus (DM). To this purpose, diets with low glycaemic index (an index of carbohydrate food expressing how quickly this nutrient can increase blood glucose; GI) and glycaemic load (an index obtained by multiplying the GI by the grams of carbohydrate, and then dividing by 100; GL) have been proposed. The aim of this review was to discuss the potential contribution of low GI/GL diets i...

Chronic inflammation and increased oxidative stress are contributing factors to many non-communicable diseases. A growing body of evidence indicates that dietary nutrients can activate the immune system and may lead to the overproduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Fatty acids as macronutrients are key players for immunomodulation, with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids having the most beneficial effect, while polyphenols and carotenoids seem to be the most promising antioxidants. Psoriasis is ...

Glucose levels in blood must be constantly maintained within a tight physiological range to sustain anabolism. Insulin regulates glucose homeostasis via its effects on glucose production from the liver and kidneys and glucose disposal in peripheral tissues (mainly skeletal muscle). Blood levels of glucose are regulated simultaneously by insulin-mediated rates of glucose production from the liver (and kidneys) and removal from muscle; adipose tissue is a key partner in this scenario, providing no...
