Retinopathy: A sign of cerebral small vessel disease in diabetes?

Journal of Diabetes Investigation

Nov 28, 2016

Toshitaka Umemura, Takahiko Kawamura

Abstract

Retinal microvascular abnormalities may be useful predictive imaging marker for cerebral small vessel disease. Learning from retinal signs may provide clues to understanding pathophysiology of lacunar stroke and subclinical cerebrovascular diseases in diabetic patients.

Cerebrovascular Disease

Cerebrovascular disease is an important cause of cognitive impairment and dementia in elderly patients. Discover the latest research on cerebrovascular disease here.

Kidney Disease & Type 2 Diabetes

High blood glucose levels can damage the glomerulus and lead to thickening of the glomerular basement membrane, over time resulting in kidney deterioration and failure. At present, there is no cure. Here is the latest research on kidney diseases in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Microscopic Polyangiitis

Microscopic polyangiitis is a primary systemic vasculitis of small- and some medium-sized vessels. It is characterized by a tropism for kidneys and lungs, positive association with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA), and a paucity of immunoglobulin deposits in vessel walls. Discover the latest research on microscopic polyangiitis here.

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

Senescence in Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes has been found to induce premature senescence of endothelial retinal cells. An increase in senescence-associated cytokines has been found in patients with diabetic retinopathy. Understanding the mechanism and preventing this from occurring is of great importance. Here is the latest research on senescence and diabetic retinopathy.

Congenital Brain Malformations

Congenital brain malformations are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients younger than 2 years. Discover the latest research on congenital brain malformations here.

Type 2 Diabetes

This feed focuses on Type 2 Diabetes, a disease where the body doesn’t produce or respond to insulin anymore, leading to abnormal glucose levels in the blood.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Biomarkers for Type 2 Diabetes

Biomarkers can help understand chronic diseases and assist in risk prediction for prevention and early detection of diseases. Here is the latest research on biomarkers in type 2 diabetes, a disease in which the body is unable to produce or properly use insulin.

Retinal Development: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging.

Complications of Diabetes

This feed focuses on the complications of diabetes, including diabetic nephropathy, ketoacidosis, cardiomyopathy, and neuropathy.

Cerebral Small Vessel Diseases

Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) includes several diseases affecting the small arteries, arterioles, venules, and capillaries of the brain, and refers to several pathological processes and etiologies. Discover the latest research on CSVD here.
