LIU Wei, HUA Lin, ZHANG Xue-lian, et al.Department of Endocrinology, Beijing Tongren Hospital Affiliated to Capital Medical University, Beijing 100730, China

Abstract Objective To investigate the relationship of C-peptide(CP)to diabetic retinopathy(DR)in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM).

Methods Totally 327 T2DM patients admitted to this hospital from January 2006 to March 2007 were divided, according to thyroid stimulating hormone(TSH) level, into groups A(with normal thyroid function,0.4 mU/LTSH4.0 mU/L, n=200),B(with mild SCH,4.0 mU/LTSH10.0 mU/L, n=107),C(with severe SCH,TSH10.0 mU/L, n=20),and according to whether receiving insulin therapy(IT),into groups IT(n=281), non-IT (n=46).Levels of basic CP(CP0)and 1-,2-,3-hour postprandial CP(CP1, CP2, CP3) were detected. TOPCON eyeground photographical equipments were used to recheck.

Results There was significant difference in CP0,CP3 among the 3 groups(P0.05),not in CP1, CP2(P0.05).By Spearman rank correlation analysis,only CP0 in group A was negatively correlated with right eye lesions(P0.05),but by coefficient of partial correlation results after correction of diabetic duration and HbA1c ,CP level was not correlated linearly with DR in the 3 groups(P0.05).By multiple coefficient of partial correlation after correction of age and diabetic duration, CP level was not correlated linearly with lesions of right,left eyes in groups IT,non-IT(P0.05).

Conclusion CP level may be correlated with occurrence and development of DR,but under the influence of many factors,role of CP may be weakened.The relationship between CP and DR in T2DM patients needs discussing further.

FU Xiu-li,ZHAO Shi,MAO Hong,et al.Department of Endocrinology,Central Hospital of Wuhan,Tongji Medical College,Huazhong University of Science and Technology,Wuhan 430014,China

Abstract Objective To explore the influencing factors of vasodilation in elderly type 2 diabetic patients with subclinical hypothyroidism.Methods A total of 241 elderly type 2 diabetic patients admitted to our department between April 2009 and October 2011 were selected and divided into an observation group(with subclinical hypothyroidism,n=97)and a control group(without subclinical hypothyroidism,n=144).The color Doppler was used to detect the brachial artery flow-mediated dilation(FMD).Results The patients in the observation group had higher levels of thyroid stimulating hormone(TSH),triglyceride(TG),total cholesterol(TC),low density lipoprotein-cholesterol(LDL-C),high sensitivity-C reactive protein(hs-CRP),interleukin-6(IL-6),but lower FMD than those in the control group(P0.05).Pearson correlation analysis results showed that FMD was negatively correlated with TSH,hs-CRP,IL-6,TG,and TC in the observation group(P0.01).Multiple Logistic regression analysis results showed that TSH,hs-CRP,and IL-6 had significant impact on the regression equationP0.01.Conclusion Subclinical hypothyroidism aggravates endothelial damage in elderly type 2 diabetic patients.Increases of TSH,hs-CRP,and IL-6 are the risk factors for the damage.

Abstract Objective To explore the relationship of blood pressure circadian rhythm and variability with brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity(baPWV) in patients with essential hypertension,and the influencing factors for blood pressure circadian rhythm.Methods The 252 patients stayed in the Department of Cardiology of our hospital between May 2011 and May 2012 diagnosed with essential hypertension were tested for office blood pressure,ambulatory blood pressure,and blood biochemical parameters.The baPWV was also determined using automatic arteriosclerosis detector.The subjects were divided into a scoop-shaped group(n=127),a non-scoop-shaped group(n=71),and a reverse scoop-shaped group(n=54) according to the circadian rhythm.Results The age,24 h systolic blood pressure(24 hSBP),nocturnal diastolic blood pressure(nDBP),baPWV,and pulse pressure of patients in the reverse scoop-shaped group were greater than that of the scoop-shaped group(P0.05).The reverse scoop-shaped group had lower daytime diastolic blood pressure(dDBP),but higher age and nSBP than the non-scoop-shaped group(P0.05).Non-scoop-shaped group had higher nSBP and pulse pressure than the scoop-shaped group(P0.05).Stepwise multiple Logistic regression analysis showed that 24 hSBP,dDBP,nSBP,and baPWV significantly affected the circadian rhythm.Age, duration of hypertension,diastolic blood pressure coefficient of variation(DBP-CV),and pulse pressure were positively correlated with baPWV(r=0.405,0.296,0.260,0.271; P0.05).

Conclusion Blood pressure circadian rhythm in patients with essential hypertension is closely related with 24 hSBP,dDBP,nSBP,as well as baPWV.Therefore,abnormalities in circadian rhythm might be an indicator for arterial stiffness.

YAN Xiang-hua,ZHANG Lan.Department of Nursing,Medical College of Shihezi University, Shihezi 832002,China

Abstract Objective To explore the relationship between cardiovascular reactivity (CVR) and Perceived Stress Scales in Kazakh hypertension patients,to provide a theoretical basis for clinical prevention and treatment of hypertension.

Methods A questionnaire combined with experimental study was performed in Kazakh hypertension or non-hypertension patients from March to September of 2012.Perceived Stress Scales were used to observe systolic blood pressure (SBP),diastolic blood pressure (DBP),heart rate (HR),oxygen saturation (SPO2).The relationship between CVR and Perceived Stress Scales were analyzed with descriptive statistics,correlation and linear regression analysis.

Results (1)There was significant difference in SBP,DBP during periods of baseline,task,recovery between 2 groups (P0.05),and in SPO2 during periods of task,recovery (P0.05).(2) Feeling of control was positively correlated with SBP,DBP during periods of baseline, task, recovery in hypertension group (P0.05);In control group,predictive sense,feeling of control negatively with SPO2 during periods of baseline, task, recovery, negatively with baseline-task HR(P0.05);Feeling of overload positively with HR during periods of baseline, recovery, negatively with recovery SPO2 and baseline-task HR fluctuation (P0.05).(3) By stepwise regression analysis, there was significance in effect of baseline SBP on feeling of control in Perceived Stress Scales in hypertension group (P=0.003),and in effect of recovery SPO2 on predictive sense, feeling of control and feeling of overload in control group (P=0.001,0.001,0.014,respectively).

Conclusion Kazakh hypertension patients are susceptible to the impact of psychological factors,the fluctuation of BP being big.Regulation of predictive sense,feeling of control,feeling of overload is beneficial to control of their BP.

Abstract Objective To discuss the clinical characteristics of multivessel coronary artery disease(CAD) combined with left ventricular dysfunction(LVD) and its risk factors.

Methods A total of 384 multivessel CAD patients diagnosed by coronary angiography from June 2009 to September 2012 were divided, according to echocardiography results,into groups A left ventricular ejection fraction(LVEF) 50%,n=266, B(LVEF50%,n=118).The clinical data were recorded and univariate and multivariate Logistic regression analysis performed.

Results The proportion of male, history of myocardial infarction(MI),incidence of diabetes and unstable angina(USA) were higher in group B than in group A,and incidence of hypertension and dyslipidemia lower, the difference was significant(P0.05).By univariate Logistic regression analysis, male, MI history, diabetic history, hypertension, dyslipidemia and USA were taken into regression equation,odds ratio(OR) and 95% confidence interval(95%CI)were 1.808(1.070, 3.057),3.289(2.094, 5.165),1.641(1.028, 2.620), 0.556(0.359, 0.861),0.497(0.292, 0.844),1.579(1.005, 2.479), respectively.By multivariate Logistic regression analysis,OR(95%CI) of MI history, diabetic history, hypertension, dyslipidemia were 3.314 (2.048,5.363), 2.415 (1.346,4.332), 0.597 (0.366,0.973), 0.364 (0.197,0.675), respectively.

Conclusion Histories of MI and diabetes are risk factors of multivessel CAD combined with LVD, and hypertension, dyslipidemia are protective factors.
