Accelerated intimal hyperplasia and increased endogenous inhibitors for NO synthesis in rabbits with alloxan-induced hyperglycaemia. (1/3915)

1. We examined whether endogenous inhibitors of NO synthesis are involved in the augmentation of intimal hyperplasia in rabbits with hyperglycaemia induced by alloxan. 2. Four weeks after the endothelial denudation of carotid artery which had been performed 12 weeks after alloxan, the intimal hyperplasia was greatly augmented with hyperglycaemia. The degree of hyperplasia was assessed using three different parameters of histopathological findings as well as changes in luminal area and intima: media ratio. 3. There were positive and significant correlations between intima:media ratio, plasma glucose, and concentrations of N(G)-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA) and N(G), N(G)-dimethyl-L-arginine (ADMA) in endothelial cells, that is, the intima:media ratio became greater as plasma glucose and endothelial L-NMMA and ADMA were increased. Furthermore, endothelial L-NMMA and ADMA were increased in proportion to the increase in plasma glucose. 4. In contrast, there were inverse and significant correlations between cyclic GMP production by carotid artery strips with endothelium and plasma glucose, between cyclic GMP production and endothelial L-NMMA and ADMA, and between the intima:media ratio and cyclic GMP production. 5. Exogenously applied L-NMMA and ADMA inhibited cyclic GMP production in a concentration-dependent manner. IC50 values were determined to be 12.1 microM for the former and 26.2 microM for the latter. The cyclic GMP production was abolished after the deliberate removal of endothelium from the artery strips. 6. These results suggest that the augmentation of intimal hyperplasia with hyperglycaemia is closely related to increased accumulation of L-NMMA and ADMA with hyperglycaemia, which would result in an accelerated reduction in NO production/release by endothelial cells.  (+info)

Effect of hyperglycemia-hyperinsulinemia on whole body and regional fatty acid metabolism. (2/3915)

The effects of combined hyperglycemia-hyperinsulinemia on whole body, splanchnic, and leg fatty acid metabolism were determined in five volunteers. Catheters were placed in a femoral artery and vein and a hepatic vein. U-13C-labeled fatty acids were infused, once in the basal state and, on a different occasion, during infusion of dextrose (clamp; arterial glucose 8.8 +/- 0.5 mmol/l). Lipids and heparin were infused together with the dextrose to maintain plasma fatty acid concentrations at basal levels. Fatty acid availability in plasma and fatty acid uptake across the splanchnic region and the leg were similar during the basal and clamp experiments. Dextrose infusion decreased fatty acid oxidation by 51.8% (whole body), 47.4% (splanchnic), and 64.3% (leg). Similarly, the percent fatty acid uptake oxidized decreased at the whole body level (53 to 29%), across the splanchnic region (30 to 13%), and in the leg (48 to 22%) during the clamp. We conclude that, in healthy men, combined hyperglycemia-hyperinsulinemia inhibits fatty acid oxidation to a similar extent at the whole body level, across the leg, and across the splanchnic region, even when fatty acid availability is constant.  (+info)

Effects of duodenal distension on antropyloroduodenal pressures and perception are modified by hyperglycemia. (3/3915)

Marked hyperglycemia (blood glucose approximately 15 mmol/l) affects gastrointestinal motor function and modulates the perception of gastrointestinal sensations. The aims of this study were to evaluate the effects of mild hyperglycemia on the perception of, and motor responses to, duodenal distension. Paired studies were done in nine healthy volunteers, during euglycemia ( approximately 4 mmol/l) and mild hyperglycemia ( approximately 10 mmol/l), in randomized order, using a crossover design. Antropyloroduodenal pressures were recorded with a manometric, sleeve-side hole assembly, and proximal duodenal distensions were performed with a flaccid bag. Intrabag volumes were increased at 4-ml increments from 12 to 48 ml, each distension lasting for 2.5 min and separated by 10 min. Perception of the distensions and sensations of fullness, nausea, and hunger were evaluated. Perceptions of distension (P < 0.001) and fullness (P < 0.05) were greater and hunger less (P < 0.001) during hyperglycemia compared with euglycemia. Proximal duodenal distension stimulated pyloric tone (P < 0.01), isolated pyloric pressure waves (P < 0.01), and duodenal pressure waves (P < 0.01). Compared with euglycemia, hyperglycemia was associated with increases in pyloric tone (P < 0.001), the frequency (P < 0.05) and amplitude (P < 0.01) of isolated pyloric pressure waves, and the frequency of duodenal pressure waves (P < 0.001) in response to duodenal distension. Duodenal compliance was less (P < 0.05) during hyperglycemia compared with euglycemia, but this did not account for the effects of hyperglycemia on perception. We conclude that both the perception of, and stimulation of pyloric and duodenal pressures by, duodenal distension are increased by mild hyperglycemia. These observations are consistent with the concept that the blood glucose concentration plays a role in the regulation of gastrointestinal motility and sensation.  (+info)

Time-dependent and tissue-specific effects of circulating glucose on fetal ovine glucose transporters. (4/3915)

To determine the cellular adaptations to fetal hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, we examined the time-dependent effects on basal (GLUT-1 and GLUT-3) and insulin-responsive (GLUT-4) glucose transporter proteins by quantitative Western blot analysis in fetal ovine insulin-insensitive (brain and liver) and insulin-sensitive (myocardium, skeletal muscle, and adipose) tissues. Maternal glucose infusions causing fetal hyperglycemia resulted in a transient 30% increase in brain GLUT-1 but not GLUT-3 levels and a decline in liver and adipose GLUT-1 and myocardial and skeletal muscle GLUT-1 and GLUT-4 levels compared with gestational age-matched controls. Maternal insulin infusions leading to fetal hypoglycemia caused a decline in brain GLUT-3, an increase in brain GLUT-1, and a subsequent decline in liver GLUT-1, with no significant change in insulin-sensitive myocardium, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue GLUT-1 or GLUT-4 concentrations, compared with gestational age-matched sham controls. We conclude that fetal glucose transporters are subject to a time-dependent and tissue- and isoform-specific differential regulation in response to altered circulating glucose and/or insulin concentrations. These cellular adaptations in GLUT-1 (and GLUT-3) are geared toward protecting the conceptus from perturbations in substrate availability, and the adaptations in GLUT-4 are geared toward development of fetal insulin resistance.  (+info)

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor improves blood glucose control and alleviates fasting hyperglycemia in C57BLKS-Lepr(db)/lepr(db) mice. (5/3915)

Systemic administration of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) decreases nonfasted blood glucose in obese, non-insulin-dependent diabetic C57BLKS-Lepr(db)/lepr(db) (db/db) mice, with a concomitant decrease in body weight. By measuring percent HbA1c in BDNF-treated and pair-fed animals, we show that the effects of BDNF on nonfasted blood glucose levels are not caused by decreased food intake but reflect a significant improvement in blood glucose control. Furthermore, once established, this effect can persist for weeks after cessation of BDNF treatment. Oral glucose tolerance tests were performed to examine the effects of BDNF on blood glucose control in the fasted state and after an oral glucose challenge. BDNF treatment normalized fasting blood glucose from initially hyperglycemic levels and also showed evidence for beneficial, although less marked, effects on the ability to remove exogenous glucose from blood. One means to lower fasting blood glucose is to reduce the glucose output of peripheral tissues that normally play a part in the maintenance of fasting hyperglycemia. Because the liver is the major endogenous source of glucose in blood during fasting, and because hepatic weight and glucose output are increased in type 2 diabetes, we evaluated the effects of BDNF on liver tissue. BDNF reduced the hepatomegaly present in db/db mice, in association with reduced liver glycogen and reduced liver enzyme activity in serum, supporting the possible involvement of liver tissue in the mechanism of action for BDNF.  (+info)

Hyperglycemia inhibits insulin activation of Akt/protein kinase B but not phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase in rat skeletal muscle. (6/3915)

Sustained hyperglycemia impairs insulin-stimulated glucose utilization in the skeletal muscle of both humans and experimental animals--a phenomenon referred to clinically as glucose toxicity. To study how this occurs, a model was developed in which hyperglycemia produces insulin resistance in vitro. Rat extensor digitorum longus muscles were preincubated for 4 h in Krebs-Henseleit solution containing glucose or glucose + insulin at various concentrations, after which insulin action was studied. Preincubation with 25 mmol/l glucose + insulin (10 mU/ml) led to a 70% decrease in the ability of insulin (10 mU/ml) to stimulate glucose incorporation into glycogen and a 30% decrease in 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) uptake, compared with muscles incubated with 0 mmol/l glucose. Glucose incorporation into lipid and its oxidation to CO2 were marginally diminished, if at all. The alterations of glycogen synthesis and 2-DG uptake were first evident after 1 h and were maximal after 2 h of preincubation; they were not observed in muscles preincubated with 25 mmol/l glucose + insulin for 5 min. Preincubation for 4 h with 25 mmol/l glucose in the absence of insulin produced a similar although somewhat smaller decrease in insulin-stimulated glycogen synthesis; however, it did not alter 2-DG uptake, glucose oxidation to CO2, or incorporation into lipids. Studies of insulin signaling in the latter muscles revealed that activation of Akt/protein kinase B (PKB) was diminished by 60%, compared with that of muscles preincubated in a glucose-free medium; whereas activation of phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase, an upstream regulator of Akt/PKB in the insulin-signaling cascade, and of mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase, a parallel signal, was unaffected. Immunoblots demonstrated that this was not due to a change in Akt/PKB abundance. The results indicate that hyperglycemia-induced insulin resistance can be studied in rat skeletal muscle in vitro. They suggest that impairment of insulin action in these muscles is related to inhibition of Akt/PKB by events that do not affect PI 3-kinase.  (+info)

Hyperglycemia and focal brain ischemia. (7/3915)

The influence of hyperglycemic ischemia on tissue damage and cerebral blood flow was studied in rats subjected to short-lasting transient middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion. Rats were made hyperglycemic by intravenous infusion of glucose to a blood glucose level of about 20 mmol/L, and MCA occlusion was performed with the intraluminar filament technique for 15, 30, or 60 minutes, followed by 7 days of recovery. Normoglycemic animals received saline infusion. Perfusion-fixed brains were examined microscopically, and the volumes of selective neuronal necrosis and infarctions were calculated. Cerebral blood flow was measured autoradiographically at the end of 30 minutes of MCA occlusion and after 1 hour of recirculation in normoglycemic and hyperglycemic animals. In two additional groups with 30 minutes of MCA occlusion, CO2 was added to the inhaled gases to create a similar tissue acidosis as in hyperglycemic animals. In one group CBF was measured, and the second group was examined for tissue damage after 7 days. Fifteen and 30 minutes of MCA occlusion in combination with hyperglycemia produced larger infarcts and smaller amounts of selective neuronal necrosis than in rats with normal blood glucose levels, a significant difference in the total volume of ischemic damage being found after 30 minutes of MCA occlusion. After 60 minutes of occlusion, when the volume of infarction was larger, only minor differences between normoglycemic and hyperglycemic animals were found. Hypercapnic animals showed volumes of both selective neuronal necrosis and infarction that were almost identical with those observed in normoglycemic, normocapnic animals. When local CBF was measured in the ischemic core after 30 minutes of occlusion, neither the hyperglycemic nor the hypercapnic animals were found to be significantly different from the normoglycemic group. Brief focal cerebral ischemia combined with hyperglycemia leads to larger and more severe tissue damage. Our results do not support the hypothesis that the aggravated injury is caused by any disturbances in CBF.  (+info)

Renal changes on hyperglycemia and angiotensin-converting enzyme in type 1 diabetes. (8/3915)

Hyperglycemia causes capillary vasodilation and high glomerular capillary hydraulic pressure, which lead to glomerulosclerosis and hypertension in type 1 diabetic subjects. The insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism of the angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) gene can modulate risk of nephropathy due to hyperglycemia, and the II genotype (producing low plasma ACE concentrations and probably reduced renal angiotensin II generation and kinin inactivation) may protect against diabetic nephropathy. We tested the possible interaction between ACE I/D polymorphism and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes by measuring glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and effective renal plasma flow (ERPF) during normoglycemia ( approximately 5 mmol/L) and hyperglycemia ( approximately 15 mmol/L) in 9 normoalbuminuric, normotensive type 1 diabetic subjects with the II genotype and 18 matched controls with the ID or DD genotype. Baseline GFR (145+/-22 mL/min per 1.73 m2) and ERPF (636+/-69 mL/min per 1.73 m2) of II subjects declined by 8+/-10% and 10+/-9%, respectively, during hyperglycemia; whereas baseline GFR (138+/-16 mL/min per 1.73 m2) and ERPF (607+/-93 mL/min per 1.73 m2) increased by 4+/-7% and 6+/-11%, respectively, in ID and DD subjects (II versus ID or DD subjects: P=0.0007 and P=0.0005, for GFR and ERPF, respectively). The changes in renal hemodynamics of subjects carrying 1 or 2 D alleles were compatible, with a mainly preglomerular vasodilation induced by hyperglycemia, proportional to plasma ACE concentration (P=0.024); this was not observed in subjects with the II genotype. Thus, type 1 diabetic individuals with the II genotype are resistant to glomerular changes induced by hyperglycemia, providing a basis for their reduced risk of nephropathy.  (+info)

Background: Admission hyperglycemia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in trauma patients. However, admission hyperglycemia is not only associated with stress-induced hyperglycemia (SIH) but also with diabetic hyperglycemia (DH); furthermore, patients with normoglycemia may not only have non-diabetic normoglycemia (NDN) but also have a possibility of diabetic normoglycemia (DN), with the diabetes under control. This study aimed to assess the effects of SIH and DH on the mortality outcomes of traumatic femoral fracture patients with NDN and DN. Methods: Admission hyperglycemia was diagnosed as a serum glucose ≥200 mg/dL upon arrival at the emergency department. Diabetes mellitus (DM) was determined by patient history and/or admission HbA1c ≥ 6.5%. DH and SIH were diagnosed by admission hyperglycemia in patients with and without DM. DN and NDN were determined by absence of admission hyperglycemia in patients with and without DM. These patients were allocated into four groups: SIH (n
Background: Admission hyperglycemia is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Stress-induced hyperglycemia (SIH), a form of hyperglycemia induced by the stress response, is associated with increased patient mortality following TBI. However, admission hyperglycemia occurs not only in SIH but also in patients with diabetic hyperglycemia (DH). Current information regarding whether trauma patients with SIH represent a distinct group with differential outcomes compared to those with DH remains limited. Methods: Serum glucose concentration ≥200 mg/dL upon arrival at the emergency department was defined as hyperglycemia. Presence of diabetes mellitus (DM) was determined by patient history and/or admission glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) level ≥6.5%. In the present study, the patient cohort included those with moderate and severe TBI, as defined by an Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) score ≥3 points in the head, and excluded those who had additional AIS
Neurovascular coupling (NVC) is the link between neural activity and the corresponding changes to regional cerebral blood flow. Chronic hyperglycemia associated with diabetes has deleterious effects on vascular function. However, the potential effects of acute hyperglycemia on NVC in healthy humans is unknown. We aimed to characterize the effects of acute hyperglycemia on NVC response magnitude in females and males, and hypothesized that acute hyperglycemia would reduce NVC response magnitude. 40 healthy participants (21.6±1.7 yrs; BMI 24.1±4.1 kg/m2; 20 females) were instrumented with electrocardiogram (ECG) to measure heart rate (HR), Finometer to measure mean arterial pressure (MAP), transcranial Doppler ultrasound (TCD) for measurement of posterior cerebral artery velocity (PCAv). Blood glucose was tested using a glucometer and capillary draw via sterile lancet. NVC responses were elicited using a standardized strobe light visual stimulus (VS; 6Hz, 360rpm; 5x30sec on/60sec off) before ...
Stress hyperglycaemia is a transient increase in blood glucose level during stressful events and is common in critically ill children. Several studies have demonstrated increased risk of mortality in these children. There is paucity of information on this subject in sub Saharan Africa. The aim of this study was to describe the prevalence, outcome and factors associated with stress hyperglycaemia among children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) admitted to the Mwanamugimu nutrition unit of Mulago hospital in Uganda. This study was conducted from August 2015 to March 2016 at the Mwanamugimu nutrition unit of Mulago hospital among severely malnourished children aged 1 to 60 months. Random blood sugar levels were measured. Stress hyperglycaemia was considered as a random blood sugar | 150 mg/dl. The final outcome was ascertained at death or discharge. Statistical analysis was done using the Chi square test and logistic regression. Two hundred and thirty-five children were enrolled of whom 50% were girls.

Słowik, A.; Zwolińska, G.; Tomik, B.; Wyrwicz-Petkow, U.; Szczudlik, A., 1998: Prognostic significance of transient hyperglycemia in acute phase of ischemic stroke
OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the effects of acute hyperglycemia induced by intraperitoneal injection of glucose (2.7 g/kg) on vascular delivery to GL261 mouse gliomas kept at moderate hypothermia (~30 °C). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven GL261 glioma-bearing mice were studied by T1-weighted DCE MRI before and after an injection of glucose (n = 4) or saline (n = 3). Maximum relative contrast enhancement (RCE) and initial area under the enhancement curve (IAUC) were determined in each pixel. RESULTS: The mean tumor parameter values showed no significant changes after injecting either saline (RCE -5.9 ± 5.0 %; IAUC -3.7 ± 3.6 %) or glucose (RCE -1.6 ± 9.0 %; IAUC +0.6 ± 6.4 %). Pixel-by-pixel analysis revealed small post-injection changes in RCE and IAUC between the glucose and saline groups, all within 13 % range of their baseline values. CONCLUSION: Perturbing the metabolism of GL261 tumors kept at moderate hypothermia with hyperglycemia did not induce significant changes in the permeability
There is growing evidence that control of hyperglycemia in the critically ill patient improves outcome. Normalizing blood glucose levels decreases the risk of developing sepsis, end-organ damage, and hospital mortality. Critical care clinicians must be familiar with current and benchmark research supporting control of hyperglycemia and use this knowledge to ensure appropriate application of evidence-based practice for decreasing or preventing complications in the critically ill patient. This article describes the effects of hyperglycemia and discusses the evidence supporting tight glycemic control in such patients. The necessary steps to implement an intensive insulin therapy protocol for control of acute hyperglycemia are detailed. ...

Hyperglycemia is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients with a variety of medical conditions [1-3]. However, while the association between glucose concentration in hospital and mortality is strong in patients without known diabetes, paradoxically glucose concentration is not as strongly associated with mortality in patients with diabetes [2-6]. This suggests that background glycemia influences the relationship between glucose and mortality in patients admitted to hospital.. An elevated blood glucose in a hospitalized patient can occur because a patient has poor chronic glycemic control or if there is an acute increase in glucose, often termed stress hyperglycemia [7]. Stress hyperglycemia is the relative increase in glucose in response to an intercurrent illness. Our group has recently proposed a novel metric for relative glycemia termed the stress hyperglycemia ratio (SHR), whereby admission glucose concentration is corrected for background glycemia estimated ...
Hyperglycemia and insulin resistance are common among critically ill patients and occur in patients with or without a history of diabetes mellitus. All patients undergoing critical illness are at risk for stress-induced hyperglycemia. Some patients may be at greater risk for hyperglycemia than others when considering underlying disease states and iatrogenic factors. Many recent studies demonstrate that tight glucose control can decrease morbidity and mortality associated with critical illness. This article reviews the pathophysiology behind stress-induced hyperglycemia, the evidence to support tight glycemic control, and the importance of an intensive insulin therapy protocol to standardize treatment among critical care patients. ...
Our study indicates that perioperative hyperglycemia is associated with increased risk of hospital complications in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery. Perioperative hyperglycemia significantly increased the risk of pneumonia, systemic blood infections, urinary tract infection, skin infections, and ARF during the postoperative period. In addition, we found a significant association between blood glucose concentration and mortality; however, the impact of hyperglycemia on mortality rate was more significant among patients without a history of diabetes compared with those with known diabetes before admission.. The association between hyperglycemia and increased risk of hospital complications and mortality in critically ill (1,8,12,13) patients undergoing major cardiovascular surgery (12,16,17) is well established. Less information is available on the significance of hyperglycemia in those undergoing general and noncardiac surgery. Small observational studies in noncardiac surgery patients have ...
Repeated mental stress may lead to chronic alterations in cortisol and catecholamine concentrations and to insulin resistance. Furthermore, chronically elevated cortisol concentrations may favour the development of abdominal obesity and of the metabolic syndrome. Oxidative stress impairs glucose uptake in muscle and fat and correlates with BMI. Obese subjects with type 2 diabetes, especially soon after the onset of diabetes, usually exhibit postprandial hyperglycemia with delayed hyperinsulinemia. It is recognized that insulin resistance causes postprandial hyperglycemia ; however, it is also possible that impairment of early insulin secretion in response to an oral glucose load is the reason why postprandial hyperglycemia occurs. Since even modest increases in postprandial glucose values can be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Therefore, the effects of palatinose based functional food which reduces postprandial hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia were investigated in rats. This novel ...

Perioperative hyperglycemia is associated with postoperative neurocognitive disorders after cardiac surgery Xiaopeng Zhang,1 Xiaowei Yan,2 Jennifer Gorman,2 Stuart N Hoffman,3 Li Zhang,1 Joseph A Boscarino2 1Department of Anesthesiology, Geisinger Medical Center, 2Center for Health Research, Geisinger Clinic, 3Department of Neurology, Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, PA, USA Objective: Neurocognitive disorders commonly occur following cardiac surgery. However, the underlying etiology of these disorders is not well understood. The current study examined the association between perioperative glucose levels and other risk factors and the onset of neurocognitive disorders in adult patients following coronary artery bypass and/or valvular surgery. Methods: Adult patients who underwent their first cardiac surgery at a large tertiary care medical center were identified and those with neurocognitive disorders prior to surgery were excluded. Demographic, perioperative, and postoperative neurocognitive
Chronic hyperglycemia contributes to beta-cell dysfunction in diabetes and with islet transplantation, but the mechanisms remain unclear. Recent studies demonstrate that the unfolded protein response (UPR) is critical for beta-cell function. Here, we assessed the influence of hyperglycemia on UPR gene expression in transplanted islets. Streptozotocin-induced diabetic or control nondiabetic mice were transplanted under the kidney capsule with syngeneic islets either sufficient or not to normalize hyperglycemia. Twenty-one days after transplantation, islet grafts were excised and RT-PCR was used to assess gene expression. In islet grafts from diabetic mice, expression levels of many UPR genes of the IRE1/ATF6 pathways, which are important for adaptation to endoplasmic reticulum stress, were markedly reduced compared with that in islet grafts from control mice. UPR genes of the PERK pathway were also downregulated. The normalization of glycemia restored the changes in mRNA expression, suggesting that
Stress hyperglycemia (also called stress diabetes or diabetes of injury) is a medical term referring to transient elevation of the blood glucose due to the stress of illness. It usually resolves spontaneously, but must be distinguished from various forms of diabetes mellitus. It is often discovered when routine blood chemistry measurements in an ill patient reveal an elevated blood glucose. Blood glucose can be assessed either by a bedside fingerstick glucose meter or plasma glucose as performed in a laboratory (the latter being more efficacious). A retrospective cohort study by the Mayo Clinic held that bedside glucometry was a reliable estimate of plasma glucose with a mean difference of 7.9 mg/dL, but still may not coincide with every individual. The glucose is typically in the range of 140-300 mg/dl (7.8-16.7 mM) but occasionally can exceed 500 mg/dl (28 mM), especially if amplified by drugs or intravenous glucose. The blood glucose usually returns to normal within hours unless ...
One of the most common causes is stress hyperglycemia.In a stressful situation, the body needs energy source.The adrenal glands are released into the blood hormones cortisol and adrenaline, which cause liver glycogen conversion to glucose.As a result, the blood sugar level increases dramatically, allowing the flow of energy.Therefore, even a common fear of taking a blood test can lead to incorrect results.The same situation occurs when emotional experiences, trauma, surgery, physical exercise.. Quite often diagnosed hyperglycemia and infectious diseases.Here, the role played by at least two factors.Needless effects of an infectious agent may affect glucose levels.On the other hand, the disease is any such organism to stress, which should be the standard cascade of reactions starting with the ejection mechanism of glucose in the blood.. Taking certain medications can cause hyperglycemia.This is observed in the use of thiazide diuretics, hormonal agents, as well as during chemotherapy.. reason for ...

This devastating disease dramatically increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disorders. A hallmark metabolic abnormality in diabetes is hyperglycemia, which contributes to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular complications. These cardiovascular complications are, at least in part, related to hyperglycemia-induced molecular and cellular changes in the cells making up blood vessels. Whereas the mechanisms mediating endothelial dysfunction during hyperglycemia have been extensively examined, much less is known about how hyperglycemia impacts vascular smooth muscle function. Vascular smooth muscle function is exquisitely regulated by many ion channels, including several ...
Women with hyperglycaemia detected during pregnancy are at greater risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes. Data on hyperglycaemia in pregnancy in sub-Saharan Africa is scanty and varied depending on the populations studied and the methodologies used to define hyperglycaemia in pregnancy. With the recent 2013 World Health Organisation (WHO) diagnostic criteria and classification, there is yet no sufficient data on the prevalence of hyperglycaemia in sub-Saharan Africa. The objective was to determine the prevalence of Hyperglycaemia first detected during pregnancy and subsequent obstetric outcomes among patients attending antenatal care (ANC) at St. Francis Hospital Nsambya. A prospective cohort study. All women with no history of diabetes mellitus attending at or after 24 weeks gestation were eligible to participate in the study. Participants underwent a standard 75 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) after an informed written consent. The primary outcome was diagnosis of hyperglycaemia. Enrolled
Naturactin Health and Wellness | Our human body contains a certain level of glucose in the blood. The right level of blood sugar gives energy to our body cells and organs. However, when the level of glucose or sugar in our blood increases, it is known as high blood sugar or hyperglycemia. The high blood sugar level can cause several health issues. What you feel when you experience high blood sugar or hyperglycemia, why it happens, and how to take care of it - learn everything to deal with it efficiently. High blood sugar or hyperglycemia can affect people with type 1 diabetes (It is a condition in which your immune system destroys insulin-making cells in your pancreas) and type 2 diabetes (It is a lifelong disease that keeps your body from using insulin the way it should) diabetes. There are mainly two kinds of high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.
In type 1 diabetic patients, insulin supplementation can never mimic the exquisite control of glucose by pancreatic insulin seen in normal individuals. Multiple finger pricks and insulin injections (three to four per day) mean poor patient compliance, repeated exposure to bouts of inadequate glucose control (and a shift in cardiac metabolism), and cardiovascular disease in the long term. To imitate this poorly controlled type 1 diabetic patient exposed to acute hyperglycemia, we used DZ. Measurement of LPL protein expression in the heart revealed no change after acute hyperglycemia. However, the drawback with this measurement is that it does not distinguish active LPL from its inactive monomeric form. Using the heparin-sepharose column, our data for the first time show that acute hyperglycemia can indeed increase the amount of dimeric LPL in the heart. We are unaware of a similar increase in dimeric LPL in other physiology or pathology. In fact, the reverse is often seen with lipid metabolism ...
Difference Between Hyperglycemia and Diabetes What is Hyperglycemia? Definition of Hyperglycemia: Hyperglycemia is the condition in which blood sugar levels in the blood are abnormally high, that is are at levels above 150 mg/dL a few hours after eating. Causes of Hyperglycemia: The cause of hyperglycemia in children and adults is usually uncontrolled or poorly controlled diabetes. However, there are […]
Without treatment, high blood sugar levels can lead to severe dehydration. If you have surgery, you may develop an infection in your surgery wound, or it may not heal well. You may get a blood clot in your leg or arm. The clot may travel to your heart or brain and cause life-threatening problems, such as a heart attack or stroke. Hyperglycemia may cause pancreatitis. Hyperglycemia can also lead to diabetes. Hyperglycemia can damage your nerves, veins, arteries, and organs over time. Damage to arteries may increase your risk for a heart attack or stroke ...
This video will teach you how to manage and treat high blood sugar.. Please watch the entire video before treating your high blood sugar.. After you eat food that contains carbohydrates, your body breaks it down into a sugar called glucose.. Your body makes a hormone, called insulin, that helps you either use or store blood sugar.. When you have diabetes, your body does not make enough insulin, or cannot use the insulin it makes properly.. This can cause you to have too much sugar in your blood, which is a condition called hyperglycemia.. Hyperglycemia can happen when you: do not take enough insulin or diabetes medicine;. take other medicines that increase blood sugar;. eat more food or carbohydrates than you usually do;. do not get enough exercise or physical activity;. get sick, injured or have surgery;. have emotional stress, such as family or work problems;. or have changes to hormone levels, such as during menstrual periods.. If you have hyperglycemia or your blood sugar is too high,. you ...
Chronic hyperglycemia can lead to chronic activation of the nutrient-sensing serine/threonine protein kinase, mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) in β cells. Activated mTOR triggers serine/threonine phosphorylation of IRS-2 and its subsequent proteosomal degradation, leading to increased β-cell apoptosis (39). It should be noted, however, that chronic hyperglycemia can also trigger β-cell apoptosis by additional mechanisms, collectively referred to as glucotoxicity. These mechanisms include the generation of potentially damaging reactive-oxygen species (ROS) as a consequence of chronically increased glucose metabolism in β cells (40); chronic elevation of intracellular [Ca2+] to cytotoxic levels (3); a marked up-regulation in the synthesis of β-cell secretory granule proteins, including pro-insulin and pro-Islet Amyloid Associated Peptide (proIAPP), which in turn could promote ER stress (3, 41); and a glucose-induced increase in local interleukin-1β (IL-1β) production (42). Some of ...
Its not always the case that its easy to forgive and forget, particularly when it comes to past memories. The concept of the legacy effect or hyperglycemic memory describes the deferred consequence of antecedent glycemic status on the development of diabetic complications. Anyone researching chronic hyperglycemia appreciates that glucose is still considered the major risk factor implicated in the development and progression of diabetic vascular complications. Now, the same can be concluded for transient hyperglycemia. Large clinical studies have demonstrated that prior glycemic control has a sustained benefit in reducing subsequent diabetic complications.1-4 The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) and the follow-up study, Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) have determined that episodes of poor glycemic control can lead many years later to the long-term complications of diabetes.5,6 The DCCT study was designed to compare intensive versus conventional ...
HealthDay News) - Diabetes and/or uncontrolled hyperglycemia occur frequently among hospitalized patients with COVID-19 and are associated with worse outcomes, according to a study accepted for publication in the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology.. Bruce Bode, MD, from Atlanta Diabetes Associates, and colleagues conducted a retrospective observational study of adults with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 to examine glycemic and clinical outcomes in those with and without diabetes and/or acutely uncontrolled hyperglycemia hospitalized from March 1 to April 6, 2020. Data were included for 1122 patients in 88 US hospitals.. The researchers found that 451 patients with diabetes and/or uncontrolled hyperglycemia spent 37.8% of patient days with a mean blood glucose above 180 mg/dL. The mortality rate was 28.8 and 6.2% in 184 patients with diabetes and/or uncontrolled hyperglycemia and in 386 patients without diabetes or hyperglycemia, respectively. Of the 184 patients with diabetes and/or ...
Acute illness is typically associated with the so-called stress-induced hyperglycaemia, defined as a transient hyperglycaemia in patients without previous evidence of diabetes.1 The strong relationship between stress hyperglycaemia and poor outcome is largely established and actually validates hyperglycaemia as a marker of illness severity.
Purpose: : Insulin resistance and altered insulin release are the pathogenetic mechanisms underlying the development of hyperglycemia in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Microvascular complications, such as retinopathy, arise as a consequence of chronic hyperglycemia, eventually leading to blindness. Initially, the natural history of T2DM includes a period of normal or near-normal fasting plasma glucose levels and marked postprandial glycemic excursions. The impact of these glycemic spikes on retinal function is still matter of controversy. The aim of the present study was to develop a model of mild type 2 diabetes in rats (combining diet-induced insulin resistance and a slight β-cell secretory impairment) in order to study early retinopathic changes in rodents with slight fasting hyperglycemia and markedly elevated postprandial glucose levels. Methods: : Adult male Wistar rats received tap water and citrate buffer i.p. (Group 1), tap water with 30% w/v sucrose and citrate buffer ...
Hyperglycemia is a medical term meaning the blood sugar level of your body is too high. This can be caused by not receiving enough insulin or eating too much. Warning signs to look out for include extreme hunger or thirst, fatigue, dry and itchy skin, or even frequent urination. If you be sure to always maintain regular exercise and stick to a strict meal plan you should be okay.

Early Human Development. 2018 Oct;125:8-16. doi: 10.1016/j.earlhumdev.2018.08.005.. Pre-pregnancy obesity (adiposity) or maternal high blood glucose (hyperglycemia) have been linked to altered brain development in infants. A babys brain is rapidly developing both during pregnancy and in early life. Thus, maternal adiposity or hyperglycemia during pregnancy may impact the childs cognition (IQ) and behavior. This study was designed to look at the associations between pre-pregnancy adiposity or hyperglycemia and child IQ and behavior at around 3 years of age.. Data from 808 mother-child pairs from the MIREC-CD Plus study were analysed. Pre-pregnancy adiposity was assessed by calculating the womans body mass index (BMI: weight in kg/height in m2). If the women had gestational diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance (measures of high blood glucose), they were ...
The current goal of diabetes therapy is to reduce time-averaged mean levels of glycemia, measured as HbA1c, to prevent diabetic complications. However, HbA1c only explains ,25% of the variation in risk of developing complications. Because HbA1c does not correlate with glycemic variability when adjusted for mean blood glucose, we hypothesized that transient spikes of hyperglycemia may be an HbA1c-independent risk factor for diabetic complications. We show that transient hyperglycemia induces long-lasting activating epigenetic changes in the promoter of the nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) subunit p65 in aortic endothelial cells both in vitro and in nondiabetic mice, which cause increased p65 gene expression. Both the epigenetic changes and the gene expression changes persist for at least 6 d of subsequent normal glycemia, as do NF-κB-induced increases in monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 and vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 expression. Hyperglycemia-induced epigenetic changes and increased p65 ...

Our large, nationally representative study of elderly patients hospitalized with AMI indicates that the nature of the relationship between admission glucose and mortality is different in patients with and without recognized diabetes. Elevated glucose is common, infrequently treated, and associated with a steep, linear mortality increase in patients without recognized diabetes. In contrast, elevated glucose levels are not associated with an increased relative risk of mortality in patients with diabetes, except at severe levels of hyperglycemia. Surprisingly, elevated admission glucose confers at least as high or a higher risk of 30-day and 1-year mortality in patients without known diabetes as in those with diabetes.. Our study substantially expands the current understanding of the relationship between admission glucose values and adverse outcomes in patients with AMI. First, we directly compared the nature of the relationship between elevated glucose and mortality in patients with and without ...
Blood glucose is commonly considered too high if it is higher than 130 mg/dl before a meal or higher than 180 mg/dl two hours after the first bite of a meal. However, most of the signs and symptoms of high blood glucose dont appear until the blood glucose level is higher than 250 mg/dl. Some of the symptoms have a rapid onset, while others require a long period of high blood glucose to set in.Its important to note that individuals differ in their sensitivity to the effects of high blood glucose: Some people feel symptoms more quickly or more strongly than others. But each sign or symptom has a biological underpinning, or a specific cause behind the effect.Hyperglycemia can be acute or chronic. Acute hyperglycemialasts only briefly and is often the result of a high-carbohydrate meal, a missed dose of medicine, stress, or illness. Chronic hyperglycemia, on the other hand, is a state of long-term elevated blood glucose. It is often the result of undiagnosed diabetes or of an inadequate diabetes ...

Journal of Diabetes Research is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes research articles, review articles, and clinical studies related to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The journal welcomes submissions focusing on the epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, management, and prevention of diabetes, as well as associated complications, such as diabetic retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy.
Determinants of plasma glucose concentrations were studied in patients on admission to hospital with confirmed acute myocardial infarction but without previous glucose intolerance as evidenced by raised concentrations of glycosylated haemoglobin (HbAlc). Mortality in hospital increased significantly with increasing plasma concentrations of glucose in patients with both normal (p less than 0.0001, n = 311) and borderline (p less than 0.02, n = 70) concentrations of HbAlc. There was a weak relation between plasma glucose concentrations and infarct size as estimated by peak aspartate transaminase activity in both HbAlc groups (rs = 0.26, n = 101 and rs = 0.41, n = 35 respectively). A correlation was found between adrenaline and plasma glucose concentrations (r = 0.47, n = 27) and cortisol and plasma glucose concentrations (r = 0.75, n = 19), but the relation of plasma noradrenaline and plasma glucose suggested a threshold effect. Concentrations of adrenaline, but not those of noradrenaline or ...

N2 - Hyperglycemia is the most prominent sign that characterizes diabetes. Hyperglycemia favors malignant cell growth by providing energy to cancer cells. Clinical studies also showed an increased risk of diabetes being associated with different types of cancers. In addition, poorly regulated glucose metabolism in diabetic patients is often found with increased levels of chronic inflammatory markers, e.g., interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and emerging evidence has highlighted activation of the immune response in the progression and development of cancer cells. Therefore, uncontrolled proinflammatory responses could conceivably create a chronic inflammatory state, promoting a tumor-favorable microenvironment and potentially triggering immune overactivation and cancer growth.
