RESUMO

Salt intake is often estimated by the amount of sodium excreted in urine, and miso has been reported to increase it. This cross-sectional study investigated the relationship between obesity and high estimated salt intake with and without habitual miso consumption. Estimates of salt intake (g/day) were calculated using urinary sodium excretion, and a high estimated intake was defined as greater than the median amount of 9.5 g/day. Participants were divided into four groups based on estimated salt intake and miso consumption. Among 300 people, the proportions of obesity were 77.8% (n = 14/18), 40.2% (n = 53/132), 26.0% (n = 33/127), and 34.8% (n = 8/23) in the (+/-), (+/+), (-/+), and (-/-) groups of high estimated salt intake/habitual miso consumption, respectively. Compared with the (+/-) group, the adjusted odds ratios for obesity were 0.07 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.02-0.26, p < 0.001), 0.16 (95% CI: 0.03-0.76, p = 0.022), and 0.14 (95% CI: 0.04-0.51, p = 0.003) in the (-/+), (-/-), and (+/+) groups, respectively. The presence of obesity was not much higher in people with high estimated salt intake with habitual miso consumption than that in people without. Clinicians should be aware that miso consumption promotes salt excretion, which may lead to an apparently higher estimated salt intake than actual.

RESUMO

The aim of this prospective cohort study was to examine the relationships between the intakes of various vitamins and the loss of muscle mass in older people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). The change in skeletal muscle mass index (SMI, kg/m2) (kg/m2/year) was defined as follows: (SMI at baseline (kg/m2) - SMI at follow-up (kg/m2))/follow-up period (year). The rate of SMI reduction (%) was calculated as follows (the change in SMI (kg/m2/year)/SMI at baseline (kg/m2)) × 100. The rate of SMI reduction ≥ 1.2% was considered as the loss of muscle mass. Among 197 people with T2DM, 47.2% of them experienced the loss of muscle mass at the 13.7 ± 5.2 month follow-up. Vitamin B1 (0.8 ± 0.3 vs. 0.8 ± 0.3 mg/day, p = 0.031), vitamin B12 (11.2 ± 8.3 vs. 13.4 ± 7.5 µg/day, p = 0.049), and vitamin D (16.5 ± 12.2 vs. 21.6 ± 13.0 µg/day, p = 0.004) intakes in people with the loss of muscle mass were significantly lower than those without. Vitamin D intake was related to the loss of muscle mass after adjusting for sex, age, exercise, alcohol, smoking, body mass index, SMI, glucagon-like peptide-1 agonist, sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitor, insulin, HbA1c, creatinine, energy intake, and protein intake (adjusted odds ratio 0.93, 95% confidence interval: 0.88-0.97, p = 0.003). This study showed that vitamin D intake was related to the loss of muscle mass in older people with T2DM. Vitamin B12 intake tended to be related to the loss of muscle mass, although vitamin A, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin E intake were not related.

RESUMO

Background and aims: Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) have been implicated in the regulation of metabolic homeostasis in mice. Methods: In this study, the role of ILC2s in white adipose tissue (WAT) was investigated using ST2, an IL-33 receptor that is expressed on ILC2 knockout mice. Results: The deficiency of ST2 decreased ILC2s in WAT, whereas ex-ILC2, which acquired group 1 innate lymphoid cell (ILC1)-like traits, was increased. This led to significant metabolic disorders such as visceral fat obesity, decreased browning in WAT, reduction of energy metabolism, and impaired glucose tolerance, compared to wild type (WT) mice. Those metabolic abnormalities of ST2-knockout (ST2KO) mice were not ameliorated by IL-33 administration, but impaired glucose tolerance and visceral fat obesity were significantly improved by transplantation of ILCs from the bone marrow of WT mice. The relative expression of Cd36 in WAT increased due to the deficiency of ST2, and the storage of saturated fatty acids in WAT of ST2KO mice was significantly higher than that of WT mice. Moreover, saturated fatty acids aggravated the chronic inflammation in adipocytes, promoted the differentiation of M1-like macrophages, and inhibited that of M2-like macrophages. Conclusions: Our results indicated that ILC2 regulates diet-induced obesity and chronic inflammation through the regulation of saturated fatty acid absorption in visceral adipose tissue.

RESUMO

The aim of this research was to reveal the characteristics of gut microbiome altered by acarbose intervention in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and its possible association with habitual dietary intake. Eighteen patients with T2D were administered acarbose for four weeks. The abundances of two major phyla, namely Actinobacteria and Bacteroidetes, were reciprocally changed accompanied by the acarbose intervention. There were also significant changes in the abundances of ten genera, including the greater abundance of Bifidobacterium, Eubacterium, and Lactobacillus and the lower abundance of Bacteroides in the group after the intervention than that before the intervention. Hierarchical clustering of habitual dietary intake was performed based on the pattern of changes in the gut microbiota and were classified into distinct three clusters. Cluster I consisted of sucrose, cluster II mainly included fat intake, and cluster III mainly included carbohydrate intake. Moreover, the amount of change in Faecalibacterium was positively correlated with the intake of rice, but negatively correlated with the intake of bread. The intake of potato was negatively correlated with the amount of change in Akkermansia and Subdoligranulum. Acarbose altered the composition of gut microbiome in Japanese patients with T2D, which might be linked to the habitual dietary intake.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Erythritol, a sugar alcohol, is widely used as a substitute for sugar in diets for patients with diabetes or obesity. METHODS: In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of erythritol on metabolic disorders induced by a high-fat diet in C57BL/6J mice, while focusing on changes in innate immunity. RESULTS: Mice that were fed a high-fat diet and administered water containing 5% erythritol (Ery group) had markedly lower body weight, improved glucose tolerance, and markedly higher energy expenditure than the control mice (Ctrl group) (n = 6). Furthermore, compared with the Ctrl group, the Ery group had lesser fat deposition in the liver, smaller adipocytes, and significantly better inflammatory findings in the small intestine. The concentrations of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), such as acetic acid, propanoic acid, and butanoic acid, in the serum, feces, and white adipose tissue of the Ery group were markedly higher than those in the Ctrl group. In flow cytometry experiments, group 3 innate lymphoid cell (ILC3) counts in the lamina propria of the small intestine and ILC2 counts in the white adipose tissue of the Ery group were markedly higher than those in the Ctrl group. Quantitative real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction analyses showed that the Il-22 expression in the small intestine of the Ery group was markedly higher than that in the Ctrl group. CONCLUSIONS: Erythritol markedly decreased metabolic disorders such as diet-induced obesity, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, and fat accumulation in the mouse liver by increasing SCFAs and modulating innate immunity.

RESUMO

Background and Aims: Many nutritional and epidemiological studies have shown that high consumption of trans fatty acids can cause several adverse effects on human health, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. In the present study, we investigated the effect of trans fatty acids on innate immunity in the gut by observing mice fed with a diet high in trans fatty acids, which have been reported to cause dysbiosis. Methods: We used C57BL6/J mice and fed them with normal diet (ND) or high-fat, high-sucrose diet (HFHSD) or high-trans fatty acid, high-sucrose diet (HTHSD) for 12 weeks. 16S rRNA gene sequencing was performed on the mice stool samples, in addition to flow cytometry, real-time PCR, and lipidomics analysis of the mice serum and liver samples. RAW264.7 cells were used for the in vitro studies. Results: Mice fed with HTHSD displayed significantly higher blood glucose levels and advanced fatty liver and intestinal inflammation, as compared to mice fed with HFHSD. Furthermore, compared to mice fed with HFHSD, mice fed with HTHSD displayed a significant elevation in the expression of CD36 in the small intestine, along with a reduction in the expression of IL-22. Furthermore, there was a significant increase in the populations of ILC1s and T-bet-positive ILC3s in the lamina propria in mice fed with HTHSD. Finally, the relative abundance of the family Desulfovibrionaceae, which belongs to the phylum Proteobacteria, was significantly higher in mice fed with HFHSD or HTHSD, than in mice fed with ND; between the HFHSD and HTHSD groups, the abundance was slightly higher in the HTHSD group. Conclusions: This study revealed that compared to saturated fatty acid intake, trans fatty acid intake significantly exacerbated metabolic diseases such as diabetes and fatty liver.

RESUMO

Glycemic control, including glycemic variability, is important for the prevention of diabetic vascular complications in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). There was an association between miso soup intake and insulin resistance. However, the relationship between habitual miso consumption and glycemic control, including glycemic variability, in patients with T2DM remains unknown. We defined people without habitual miso consumption if they did not consume miso soup at all in a day. The average, standard deviation (SD), and coefficient of variation (CV), calculated as CV = (SD/average HbA1c) × 100 (%), of hemoglobin (Hb) A1c levels were evaluated. The proportions of habitual miso consumption of male and female were 88.1% and 82.3%, respectively. The average (7.0 [6.4-7.5] vs. 7.3 [6.8-8.4] %, p = 0.009), SD (0.21 [0.12-0.32] vs. 0.37 [0.20-0.72], p = 0.004), and CV (0.03 [0.02-0.04] vs. 0.05 [0.03-0.09], p = 0.005) of HbA1c levels in female with habitual miso consumption were lower than those of female without. Moreover, habitual miso consumption correlated with average (ß = -0.251, p = 0.009), SD (ß = -0.175, p = 0.016), and CV (ß = -0.185, p = 0.022) of HbA1c levels after adjusting for covariates. However, no association between habitual miso consumption and any glycemic parameters was shown among male. This study clarified the association between habitual miso consumption and good glycemic control, including glycemic variability, in female, but not in male.

RESUMO

Background: To investigate the acute effects of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on lifestyle and metabolic parameters in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Methods: This retrospective cohort study included 34 patients who were admitted to our hospital from April 16 to May 1, 2020. Data on stress levels, sleep duration, exercise, total diet, snacks, and prepared food intake were obtained from the questionnaires. Changes in the values of hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and body weight from 3 months before the administration of the questionnaire to the time the study questionnaire was administered (pandemic year), and those from 15 months before to 12 months before the administration of the questionnaire (pre-pandemic year) were evaluated. Results: Increased stress levels and decreased exercise volumes were observed in approximately 60% and 50% of participants during the COVID-19 pandemic, respectively. Decreased sleep duration was associated with changes in the body weight for 3 months during pandemic year (r = - 0.40, p = 0.043). Furthermore, compared with changes in HbA1c for 3 months during pre-pandemic year, changes in HbA1c during the pandemic year were worse (0.12% [0.33] % during pandemic year vs. - 0.09 [0.39] % during pre-pandemic year, p = 0.027). Conclusions: Many patients experienced stress and exercised less due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Glycemic control in patients with T1D was worse than that in the previous year. Since the pandemic is currently ongoing, more attention should be paid to stress and lifestyle factor management in patients with T1D.

RESUMO

Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic restrictions on the change in muscle mass in older patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), who were not infected with COVID-19. Methods: In this retrospective cohort study, data were obtained from outpatients who underwent bioelectrical impedance analysis at least twice before April 2020 and at least once thereafter. Skeletal muscle mass index (SMI, kg/m2) was calculated as appendicular muscle mass (kg) divided by height squared (m2). Change in SMI (kg/m2/year) was calculated as (follow-up SMI-baseline SMI/follow-up period). The differences between the changes in SMI before and after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic were evaluated using paired t test. Results: This study recruited 56 patients, with a mean (SD) age of 75.2 (7.1) years. SMI changed from 6.7 (0.9) to 6.8 (0.9) kg/m2 before the COVID-19 pandemic, whereas SMI changed from 6.8 (0.9) to 6.6 (0.9) kg/m2 after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. SMI decreased after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic compared with before the pandemic (-0.117 (0.240) vs. 0.005 (0.289) kg/m2/year, p = 0.049). This decrease was observed in men (-0.159 (0.257) vs. 0.031 (0.325) kg/m2/year, p = 0.038), patients with poor glycemic control (-0.170 (0.264) vs. 0.031 (0.285) kg/m2/year, p = 0.042), and those with a long diabetes duration (-0.153 (0.229) vs. 0.082 (0.291) kg/m2, p = 0.049). Conclusions: The COVID-19 pandemic restrictions caused muscle mass loss in older patents with T2D. Actions, including recommendation of exercise and adequate diet intake, are needed to prevent loss of muscle mass.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Diabetic nephropathy, a major complication of diabetes, is the primary risk factor for dialysis, cardiovascular diseases, and mortality. Dietary fatty acids (FAs) have been revealed to be related with cardiovascular diseases in the general populations. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of circulating FAs with diabetic nephropathy. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, 190 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes were included. Circulating FAs were measured by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Spearman rank correlation coefficients were used to investigate the association between the logarithm of FAs and the logarithm of urinary albumin excretion (UAE). We have performed logistic regression analysis to determine the effect of FAs on the presence of macroalbuminuria, defined as UAE value ≥300 mg/g creatinine. RESULTS: Mean age, body mass index, and duration of diabetes were 62.7 ± 12.1 years, 25.0 ± 4.5 kg/m2, and 9.8 ± 8.7 years, respectively. In total, 26 patients were diagnosed with macroalbuminuria. The logarithm of circulating arachidonic acid (AA) was negatively associated with the logarithm of UAE (r = - 0.221, p = 0.002). Additionally, circulating AA in patients with macroalbuminuria was lower than that in patients without macroalbuminuria (112.3 ± 75.3 mg/day vs. 164.8 ± 66.0 mg/day, p <  0.001). The logarithm of circulating AA was associated with the presence of macroalbuminuria after adjusting for covariates (odds ratio of Δ1 incremental: 0.32, 95% confidence interval: 0.10-0.99, p = 0.042). CONCLUSIONS: Circulating AA was negatively associated with UAE and the presence of macroalbuminuria.

RESUMO

AIMS/INTRODUCTION: Postprandial hypotension (PPH) refers to a decrease in systolic blood pressure by ≥20 or to <90 mmHg from baseline ≥100 mmHg within 2 h of a meal. Previous studies have reported an association between diabetes and PPH; however, the characteristics of PPH in patients with diabetes remain unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We recruited patients with diabetes who regularly attended the diabetes outpatient clinic. Participants were instructed to carry out three sets of blood pressure measurements at six time points: just before and right after, and 30, 60, 90 and 120 min after their main meal of the day. Data on PPH symptoms were collected during an interview. To investigate the relationships between explanatory variables, PPH and associated symptoms, we carried out multiple logistic regression analyses. RESULTS: We analyzed data from 300 participants. There were 150 (50.0%) participants with PPH. Systolic blood pressure before a meal was significantly associated with PPH (odds ratio [OR] 1.56, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.30-1.86, P < 0.001), after adjusting for covariates. Furthermore, age (OR 1.08, 95% CI 1.01-1.16, P = 0.027), hemoglobin A1c level (OR 2.39, 95% CI 1.01-5.64, P = 0.030) and coefficients of variation of R-R intervals (OR 0.79, 95% CI 0.65-0.97, P = 0.032) were significantly associated with asymptomatic PPH. CONCLUSIONS: Half of the present study outpatients with diabetes had PPH. High systolic blood pressure before a meal was significantly associated with the risk of PPH. Older adults and patients with higher levels of hemoglobin A1c or an autonomic dysfunction might have difficulties recognizing symptoms of PPH.

RESUMO

To investigate the acute effects of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on the lifestyle and metabolic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes mellites. This cross-sectional and retrospective cohort study induced 203 patients who completed a questionnaire regarding stress levels and lifestyles. Data regarding stress levels, sleep time, exercise, and total diet, snack, and prepared food intake were obtained from the questionnaires. The changes in the body weight or HbA1c levels were determined by comparing the values at the time the questionnaire was administered to those noted 3 months ago. Increased levels of stress and decreased exercise levels were reported in approximately 40% and >50%. During the COVID-19 pandemic. There was a negative correlation between stress and exercise (r = -0.285, p < 0.001) and a positive correlation between stress and prepared food intake (r = 0.193, p = 0.009). Decreased exercise levels (r = -0.33, p < 0.001) and increased snack consumption (r = 0.24, p = 0.002) were associated with increased body weight. Furthermore, increased total diet intake (r = 0.16, p = 0.031) was associated with increased HbA1c levels. These relationships remained significant for patients aged <65 years and patients who did not engage in regular exercise. Many patients experienced stress and lifestyle changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and these changes were associated with increased body weight and HbA1c levels.

RESUMO

Diabetic retinopathy (DR), one of the major complications of diabetes, can cause blindness and reduce quality of life. Dyslipidemia is reported to be associated with DR, whereas arachidonic acid may have a protective effect against DR. We aimed to investigate the association of circulating n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with DR. In this cross-sectional study, 190 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes were classified as no diabetic retinopathy (NDR), simple diabetic retinopathy (SDR), or proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) including pre-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Circulating fatty acids (FAs) were measured by gas chromatograph-mass spectrometry. Logistic regression analysis was performed to investigate the association between the levels of FAs and the presence of DR. The average age, body mass index and the duration of diabetes were 62.7 ± 12.1 years, 25.0 ± 4.5 kg/m2, and 9.8 ± 8.7 years, respectively. Twenty-seven patients were diagnosed with DR. Circulating levels of dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA) in the NDR (n = 163), SDR (n = 13) and PDR (n = 14) groups were 28.3 ± 11.0 µg/mL, 24.4 ± 9.7 µg/mL, and 21.8 ± 6.2 µg/mL, respectively (p = 0.032). The logarithm of circulating DGLA levels was associated with the presence of DR after adjusting for covariates (OR of 1-unit increment: 0.79, 95% CI: 0.62-1.00, p = 0.049). Circulating DGLA was negatively associated with the presence of DR.

RESUMO

Metformin is associated with risks of gastrointestinal complications in patients with type 2 diabetes. In contrast, probiotic Bifidobacterium bifidum G9-1 (BBG9-1) could improve the symptoms of diarrhea caused by metformin in animal models. Thus, the primary outcome of this study will be the effect of the probiotic BBG9-1 on gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhea, in patients with type 2 diabetes who use metformin. This open-label, single-arm, and exploratory study will examine 40 patients with type 2 diabetes who use metformin and have symptoms of constipation or diarrhea. After the baseline examination (objective 1), patients will be administered probiotic BBG9-1 for 10 ± 2 weeks. Then, examinations will be performed (objective 2). The primary outcome will be changes in the symptoms of constipation or diarrhea from objective 1 to objective 2. Secondary outcomes will include changes in gut microbiota, and correlations between changes in fecal properties and biomarkers, including HbA1c level and body mass index. This is the first study to investigate the effect of probiotic BBG9-1 on the change in the symptom of constipation or diarrhea in patients with type 2 diabetes who use metformin.

RESUMO

Background: The coexistence of hypertension and diabetes mellitus significantly increases the risk of macrovascular complications in patients with diabetes. Home blood pressure is important because it is more strongly associated with target organ damage and total mortality than clinic blood pressure measurements. Regular moderate aerobic exercise has antihypertensive effects. This study aims to examine the effect of aerobic exercise therapy on blood pressure at home in patients with diabetes. Patients and Methods: In this crossover randomized controlled trial, 110 patients with type 2 diabetes will be randomly assigned to two groups: an exercise preceding group and an exercise lagging group. During the exercise period, patients will be instructed to walk either 30 minutes twice each day or 60 minutes once each day for at least 3 days per week. During the non-exercise period, patients will be permitted to perform physical activity associated with activities of daily life. Patients will be followed up for 56 days. The primary outcome will be the mean nocturnal blood pressure from day 24 to 28 during the exercise period compared to that during the non-exercise period. The secondary outcome will include variation in nocturnal blood pressure, mean blood pressure values and variation of morning and evening blood pressure from day 24 to 28 in the exercise period compared to the non-exercise period, body weight, body mass index and bioelectrical impedance analysis. Biochemical tests such as hemoglobin A1c level, blood glucose level, serum lipid profile, renal function, uric acid levels and liver function tests will also be measured. Discussion: This randomized controlled trial will provide critical information regarding the effectiveness of moderate exercise on nocturnal blood pressure reduction. If successful, the results of this randomized controlled trial may increase exercise motivation in people with diabetes and may lead to improvement or prevention of target organ damage and overall mortality. Trial Registration: Trial registration: University Hospital Medical Information Network, UMIN 000035973. Protocol version number: R000040969. Registration date: February 22, 2019. Recruitment began: June 19, 2019. The date of completion of recruitment: July 3, 2020. URL: http://www.umin.ac.jp.

RESUMO

Insulin resistance is a risk of sarcopenia, and the presence of sarcopenia is high in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). It has been reported that habitual miso soup consumption was associated with lower insulin resistance. However, the association between habitual miso consumption and the presence of sarcopenia in patients with T2DM, especially sex difference, was unclear. In this cross-sectional study, 192 men and 159 women with T2DM were included. Habitual miso consumption was defined as consuming miso soup regularly. Having both low skeletal muscle mass index (<28.64% for men, <24.12% for women) and low adjusted hand grip strength (<51.26% for men, <35.38% for women) was defined as sarcopenia. The proportions of sarcopenia were 8.7% in men and 22.6% in women. The proportions of habitual miso consumption were 88.0% in men and 83.6% in women. Among women, the presence of sarcopenia was lower in the group with habitual miso consumption (18.8% versus 42.3%, p = 0.018); however, there was no association between habitual miso consumption and the presence of sarcopenia in men. Habitual miso consumption was negatively associated with the presence of sarcopenia in women (adjusted odds ratio (OR), 0.20 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.06-0.62), p = 0.005) but not in men. This study indicated that habitual miso consumption was associated with the presence of sarcopenia in women but not in men.

RESUMO

Metformin is reported to affect human gut microbiota; however, the nature of this association in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is unknown. We enrolled 31 patients with T2DM who took metformin for the first time in this study. We compared them before and after four weeks of taking metformin. Fecal samples were collected and 16S rDNA sequences were performed to identify the gut microbiota. Blood samples and Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale (GSRS) questionnaire results, denoting gastro-intestinal symptoms, were also collected. In the whole-group analysis, no significant differences were found at the phylum level. In a subgroup of 21 patients that excluding those using medications affecting gut microbiota, there was a significant decrease of the phylum Firmicutes (p = 0.042) and of the ratio of the Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes abundances (p = 0.04) after taking metformin. Changes in abdominal pain (r = -0.56, p = 0.008) and regurgitation (r = -0.53, p = 0.01) were associated with Parabacteroides. Despite there being no direct association with abdominal symptoms, our study revealed that the composition of gut microbiota in Japanese individuals with T2DM partially changed after starting metformin.

RESUMO

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with testosterone deficiency. However, NAFLD patients generally do not respond to treatment with testosterone alone. We investigated the innate immune mechanisms underlying the effects of treatment with testosterone alone, estrogen alone, or combined testosterone and estrogen on high-fat diet (HFD)-induced NAFLD due to testosterone deficiency. Orchiectomized (OCX) male Rag2-/- mice were used as a model of testosterone deficiency. To assess NAFLD severity, NAFLD activity score (NAS) is adopted. Moreover, immunological change was analyzed by multicolor flow cytometry. Treatment with both testosterone and estrogen significantly decreased body weight to that of the sham mice/normal diet (ND). NAS and liver fibrosis in OCX-HFD mice were significantly deteriorated, and treatment with testosterone and estrogen improved same as sham-ND mice. HFD increased the ratio of both type 2 and 3 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s and ILC3s) to CD45-positive cells in the liver. Treatment with testosterone alone decreased the ratio of ILC2 to CD45 but not the ILC3-to-CD45 ratio. Addition of estrogen to the treatment reduced the ratios of ILC2-to-CD45 and ILC3-to-CD45 to the same level observed in sham-HFD mice. Moreover, OCX-HFD mice had a decreased proportion of M2 macrophages compared with sham-ND mice. Treatment with testosterone alone did not restore the proportion of M2 macrophages; however, combination treatment with both estrogen and testosterone increased that to the same level as that in sham-HFD mice. Treatment with both testosterone and estrogen improves liver fibrosis and decreases ILC3 and increases M2 macrophage abundance in the liver.NEW & NOTEWORTHY The progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with testosterone deficiency. NAFLD patients generally do not respond to treatment with testosterone alone. In animal studies, treatment with testosterone and estrogen reduced the ratios of ILC2:CD45 and ILC3:CD45 and increased M2 macrophages in liver. Our study suggests, based on our immunological data, that a combination of estrogen and testosterone may be clinically relevant for the treatment of NAFLD in patients with male menopause.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Reduction of muscle mass and strength is an important treatment target for patients with type 2 diabetes. Recent studies have reported that high-intensity resistance training improves physical function; however, all patients found it difficult to perform high-intensity resistance training. Radio calisthenics, considered as therapeutic exercises to promote health in Japan, are simple exercises that can be performed regardless of age and help move the muscles and joints of the whole body effectively according to the rhythm of radio. We investigated the efficacy of radio calisthenics for muscle mass in patients with type 2 diabetes in this retrospective cohort study. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A total of 42 hospitalized patients with type 2 diabetes were recruited. The skeletal muscle mass index (SMI, kg/m2) was calculated as appendicular muscle mass (kg) divided by height squared (m2). We defined the change of SMI as the difference of SMI between the beginning and end of hospitalization. RESULTS: Among 42 patients, 15 (11 men and 4 women) performed radio calisthenics. Body weights of both radio calisthenics exercisers and non-exercisers decreased during hospitalization. The change of SMI was significantly lesser in radio calisthenics exercisers than in non-exercisers (7.1±1.4 to 7.1±1.3, -0.01±0.09 vs 6.8±1.1 to 6.5±1.2, -0.27±0.06 kg/m2, p=0.016). The proportion of decreased SMI was 85.2% (23/27 patients) in non-radio calisthenics exercisers, whereas that in radio calisthenics exercisers was 46.7% (7/15 patients). CONCLUSIONS: Radio calisthenics prevent the reduction of skeletal muscle mass. Thus, radio calisthenics can be considered effective for patients with type 2 diabetes.

RESUMO

To investigate the role of microRNA (miRNA) in muscle atrophy, we performed microarray analysis of miRNA expression in skeletal muscles of Sham, orchiectomized (ORX) mice, and ORX mice treated with androgen and identified that the expression of miR-23b-3p in ORX mice was significantly higher than that in Sham mice (P = 0.007); however, miR-23b-3p expression in ORX mice treated with androgen was lower (P = 0.001). We also investigated the mechanism by which overexpression or knockdown of miR-23b-3p influences the expression of myosin heavy chain, muscle protein synthesis, ATP activity, and glucose uptake in C2C12 myotube cells. Moreover, we examined the serum miR-23b-3p levels among male subjects with type 2 diabetes and whether the serum miR-23b-3p levels could be a biomarker for muscle atrophy. The overexpression of miR-23b-3p in C2C12 myotube cells significantly upregulated the expression of myosin heavy chain, protein synthesis, ATP activity, and glucose uptake. Reporter assays raised a possible direct post-transcriptional regulation involving miR-23b-3p and the 3'-UTR of PTEN mRNA. Among subjects with type 2 diabetes, serum miR-23b-3p levels in the subjects with decreased muscle mass were significantly higher compared to the levels in the subjects without. Our results indicate that miR-23b-3p downregulates the expression of PTEN in myotube cells and induces the growth of myosin heavy chain. In addition, the serum level of miR-23b-3p can be used as a diagnostic marker for muscle atrophy.
