Objective: Chronically increased blood glucose levels may affect the vestibular system by damaging cells and neural structures in diabetes mellitus (DM). We aimed to search the effects of neurovascular degeneration on the vestibular system in type 2 DM and prediabetic patients by using air-conducted ocular (oVEMP) and cervical (cVEMP) vestibular evoked myogenic potentials. Design: Prospective study. Study sample: Thirty diabetic, 30 prediabetic patients, and 31 age-and sex-matched controls having no peripheral or central vestibular disease, were enrolled. All participants were evaluated by audiovestibular tests, oVEMP, and cVEMP. Results: In the diabetic group, mean values of both oVEMP and cVEMP p1, n1 latencies were significantly longer compared to the prediabetic group and the control group, whereas latencies were similar in prediabetic and the control groups. Bilateral neural dysfunction was recognized in both tests and lateralization was not seen in VEMP asymmetric ratios. In the diabetic group, prevalence of pathological p1 and n1 latencies in oVEMP were 30.4% and 37.5%, whereas they were 53.7%, 59.3% in cVEMP, respectively. p1 latencies of cVEMP and oVEMP were positively correlated with HbA1c and fasting plasma glucose level in the diabetic group. Conclusion: Subclinical vestibular neuropathy can be a newly defined diabetes-related complication.

In general, Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is a disease characterized by impaired functioning of pancreatic beta cells and progressive insulin hormone deficiency progressively in combination with physiologically ongoing insulin resistance. In the later stages of the disease, beta cell dysfunction is defined as beta cell death and a decrease in functional cell count. It is a common clinical finding in patients with T2D that therapeutic drugs lowering insulin resistance and diet in the course of the disease treatment ...
Validity and reliability of time management questionnaire
ALAY, SEMA; Koçak, Mehmet Settar (SAGE Publications, 2002-01-01)
the purpose of this study was to test the psychometric properties of the 49-item Diabetes Time Management Questionnaire (DTMQ) in individuals with diabetes. The (DTMQ) was designed to assess general time management skills and those specifically relevant to compliance to a diabetes healthcare regimen.
Diabetes induces compositional, structural and functional alterations on rat skeletal soleus muscle revealed by FTIR spectroscopy: a comparative study with EDL muscle
Bozkurt, Ozlem; Severcan, Mete; Severcan, Feride (2010-01-01)
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder, characterized by abnormally high blood glucose levels due to decreased secretion or effectiveness in function of insulin. Having a role in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, skeletal muscle is affected by the absence of insulin in diabetic conditions. This current study reports the application of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy in the determination of macromolecular alterations in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rat skeletal Soleus (SOL) m...
Fourier transform infrared study of the effect of diabetes on rat liver and heart tissues in the C-H region
Severcan, Feride; Toyran, N; Kaptan, N; Turan, B (2000-10-02)
Diabetes mellitus is characterized by hyperglycemia, a relative lack of insulin. The metabolic disturbances in diabetic patients are often associated with cardiac and liver dysfunctions. Generally, experimental diabetic models in animals have been used to study diabetes-related changes in organ function, but the complexity of intact tissues can cause contradictory results. For this reason, different techniques have been used to understand the mechanisms of these dysfunctions in diabetic organs. The purpose ...
