Corneal Confocal Microscopy Detects Neuropathy in Subjects With Impaired Glucose Tolerance

Subjects with IGT have evidence of neuropathy, particularly small-fiber damage, which can be detected using skin biopsy and CCM (Diabetes Care)

The effect of leptin promoter and leptin receptor gene polymorphisms on lipid profile among the diabetic population: modulations by atorvastatin treatment and environmental factors

Although lipid profile regulation is a multifactorial process, -2548G/A LEP polymorphism seems to affect statins treatment response among diabetic patients. More studies are required to specifically define factors that influence lipid profiles interaction with statin treatment response especially among patients with diabetes (Journal of Endocrinological Investigation)
