CSEH Károly, SALAMON Ferenc, SZEKERES Orsolya, SPEER Gábor, TÓTH János , WINKLER Gábor

[Causal link between obesity and type 2 diabetes has already been generally accepted. Alterations in the regulation of central nervous control of food intake, in the adaptive termogenesis and in the endocrinological function of the adipose tissue have foremost importance. Concerning the control of food intake leptin, Agouti-related protein as well as the pro-opiomelanocortin system and its receptors may have pivotal role in developing insulin resistance. In altering the control of adaptive... tovább »

[Metabolic syndrome - metabolic risk factors]

AUDIKOVSZKY Mária, PADOS Gyula

[Since abdominal type obesity, diabetes mellitus and the metabolic syndrome were classified as primary coronary risk factors beside hypercholesterolaemia and smoking, five out of six of the most significant risk factors are regarded of metabolic origin. Simultaneous occurrence of these factors are far more frequent in the population. The composition and background of this syndrome were subject of numerous analyses and classification from syndrome-X to metabolic syndrome. Reaven finds insulin... tovább »

[Diabetes mellitus and hypertension - Facts, questions and thoughts]

KERÉNYI Zsuzsa, STELLA Péter, TAMÁS Gyula

[Using the new diagnostic criteria by WHO/ISH, the frequency of hypertension in type 1 diabetic patients is 15-61%, reaching 51-73% in type 2 cases. The combination of diabetes mellitus with hypertension increases the risks of stroke and cardiovascular diseases further compared to non-diabetic hypertensive patients. Authors review new recommendations concerning the diagnosis and treatment goals of hypertension in different types of diabetes mellitus. Most recent studies supporting these... tovább »
