Vitamin D deficiency (VDD) is common in tuberculosis (TB) and may be implicated in the etiology of the disease and in its clinical course. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between leptin, inflammatory markers and VD status in TB patients, stratified for presence or absence of diabetes mellitus (DM). Two hundred ninety-nine TB patients were recruited from October 2015 to August 2016. Also, 91 normal controls were included. The information including socio-demographics, dietary intake and living habits was obtained by face-to-face interview. Serum concentrations of leptin and TNF-α, CRP and IL-6 were compared between TB patients with and without severe VDD (SVDD). Pearson's correlation was used to analyze the association between TNF-α, leptin and 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). A significantly higher prevalence of VDD and SVDD was observed in TB patients compared with normal controls (93.0% vs 70.3%, 65.9% vs 3.3% respectively). Concentration of leptin was significantly lower, while TNF-α higher in TB patients with SVDD compared to those without (p<0.05). After adjustment for confounders, leptin was positively associated with 25(OH)D (r=0.210, p=0.002) with similar correlation in TB patients with DM (r=0.240, p=0.020). A negative association between TNF-α and 25(OH)D was observed (r=-0.197, p=0.003), which was significant only in the subgroup without DM (r=-0.304, p=0.001). Our findings indicate that a higher VD status in TB patients may be related to higher immune activity and less serious tissue damage, and that this relation is different according to presence or absence of DM co-morbidity.

A case-control study was conducted in Shandong from January to December 2017 to explore the relationship between sleep quality and the risk of active pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB). Seventy-nine patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus coincident with newly diagnosed pulmonary tuberculosis (DM-PTB) and 169 age, sex, and DM course frequency-matched controls (DM alone) were enrolled. Univariate and multivariable unconditional logistic regression analyses were conducted. We further conducted subgroup analyses to explore the relationship between sleep quality and PTB risk, including DM course (≤5 and >5 years), age, sex, and the presence of overweight or obesity (body mass index (BMI) > 24 kg/m2). Multivariate logistic regression demonstrated that poor sleep quality had a borderline negative association with the odds of PTB (P = 0.065). Subgroup multivariate analyses showed that poor sleep quality increased the risk of PTB to more than 3 times among patients with a DM course > 5 years (odds ratio 3.31, 95% confidence interval: 1.08-10.13; P = 0.036) after adjusting for potential confounding factors including residential area, educational level, BMI, history of contact with tuberculosis patients, smoking, alcohol consumption, physical exercise, immune status, and frequency of blood glucose monitoring. In conclusion, poor sleep quality is an independent risk factor of PTB among DM patients with a course of > 5 years, which indicates significant epidemiological implications for PTB control.
