AIMS: In-vitro and observational studies have established a link between vitamin D deficiency and different type 2 diabetes outcomes (insulin resistance, insulin secretion, glucose intolerance). Although the number of randomized controlled trials vs placebo is small, vitamin D (VTD) has been shown to prevent increases in glucose concentration and insulin resistance, enhance insulin sensitivity and reduce systolic blood pressure in type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS: In this review, we have focused on the potential mechanisms that might explain the association between VTD and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We have also evaluated the different epidemiological and observational studies on the topic, as well as the various interventional studies. RESULTS: Although the in vitro studies appear to be promising in explaining the link between VTD metabolism and T2DM, the results of in vivo studies are conflicting. This could be related to differences in their methodological approaches. CONCLUSION: Although more studies are needed to confirm the role of VTD in the treatment of T2DM, there is nevertheless enough evidence at this time to suggest a need to maintain 25-OH vitamin D levels in T2DM patients around 30ng/mL over the course of a year.

Co-trimoxazole is a frequently prescribed antibiotic worldwide. It is composed of both trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazol (Sfx) and is used in the treatment and prophylaxis of urinary tract and Pneumocystis jirovecii infections. The Sfx component appears to be nephrotoxic at high doses or doses inappropriately adjusted for glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The trimethoprim component, even at recommended doses, inhibits tubular creatinine secretion, leading to a rapid but ultimately reversible increase in serum creatinine independent of any changes in GFR. This translates into a falsely low estimated GFR when creatinine-based equations are used. This review focuses on evidence of the differential effects of trimethoprim and Sfx on serum creatinine concentrations and GFR and their relevance to clinical practice, with particular attention to kidney transplantation.

In this article, we will discuss about hypophosphatemia due to tumor-induced osteomalacia. This disease is characterized by severe muscular and articular tenderness inducing profound walking limitation. Clinical chemistry results show severe hypophosphatemia due to hyperphosphaturia. Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGG-23) is abnormally high. Physiological role of FGF-23 is examined. We also consider the pathophysiology of tumor induced osteomalacia, the use of different investigations to localize the tumor and therapies available to treat this rare disease. [less ▲]

Native vitamine D (VTD) supplementation is recommended by the last KDIGO guidelines in CKD patients including dialysis patients. However, this recommendation is based on a low level of evidence. We designed a randomized double-blind prospective study comparing the effects of VTD and placebo in dialysis patients on mortality, vascular calcifications and different paremeters: 25-OH vitamine D- 25(OH)D -, parathormone (PTH), calcium and phosphorus.
