Vitamin D in Type 2 Diabetes: Genetic Susceptibility and the Response to Supplementation

Variants of vitamin D metabolism-genes may predispose to type 2 diabetes (T2D). This study investigated the impact of these variants on disease susceptibility, Vitamin D, parathyroid hormone, C-peptide and HbA1c levels before and after cholecalciferol supplementation in patients with T2D.

Twelve polymorphisms within CYP2R1, CYP27B1, DBP, VDR and CYP24A1 were genotyped in 553 T2D patients and 916 controls. In addition 65 patients receiving either cholecalciferol or placebo were analyzed during 6 m...

Liraglutide Ameliorates Lipotoxicity-Induced Oxidative Stress by Activating the NRF2 Pathway in HepG2 Cells

Although glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue has been reported to suppress oxidative stress in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), an effective therapeutic agent for NAFLD is currently unavailable. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to investigate the protective effects of the GLP-1 analogue liraglutide against lipotoxicity-induced oxidative stress in HepG2 cells and to elucidate the underlying mechanisms. HepG2 cells were cultured for 48 hours and treated with a free fatty acid (FFA...
