[ad_1] Researchers reviewed the relationship between the immune system and diabetic kidney disease, and the impact of this potential effect on treatment options. High blood sugar levels can cause damage to the kidneys. This long-term condition, known as diabetic kidney disease, can progress to end-stage renal disease. Patients with end-stage renal disease usually require dialysis

[ad_1] Researchers conducted a systemic review and meta-analysis of several studies concerning the effects of exercise on those with type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes contributes to the prevalence of cardiovascular disease. One way diabetes leads to cardiovascular disease is through poor vascular endothelial function. Previous research studies have suggested that exercise, a balanced diet,

A recent comprehensive review on the use of fMRI sought to evaluate the robustness and effectiveness of this approach for studying Alzheimer’s patients. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder and is characterized by the gradual loss of cognitive abilities to the point of severe dementia. Due to the complex pathophysiology of the disease,
