The following latest articles are on the topic of endocrinology which include, but are not limited to, Bone and Mineral Metabolism, Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism. The manuscripts addressed endocrine mechanisms of disease and its complications, management of obesity/diabetes in the context of other endocrine conditions, or aspects of complex disease management.

Type 1 diabetes induced by immune checkpoint inhibitors

Zhang, Rui; Cai, Xiao-Ling; Liu, Liu; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(21):2595-2598, November 5, 2020.

Highlight: Immune checkpoint inhibitors-induced type 1 diabetes is a potentially life-threating adverse event after the immunotherapy of cancers. Screening and early recognition is important.

From NAFLD to MAFLD: a “redefining” moment for fatty liver disease

Zheng, Kenneth I.; Fan, Jian-Gao; Shi, Jun-Ping; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(19):2271-2273, October 5, 2020.

Highlight: The renaming of NAFLD to MAFLD is a defining moment and serves as a catalytic call to action that will result in turbocharging systematic improvements in disease awareness, advocacy, research, and through this, clinical management.

Potential contribution of the gut microbiota to hypoglycemia after gastric bypass surgery

Zhou, Li-Yuan; Deng, Ming-Qun; Xiao, Xin-Hua

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(15):1834-1843, August 5, 2020.

Highlight: This review highlighted the current possible factors predisposing individuals to PRH, particularly related to the gut microbiota, which may yield significant insights into the intestinal regulation of glucose metabolic homeostasis and provide novel clues to improve the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Early-life nutrition and metabolic disorders in later life: a new perspective on energy metabolism

Zhou, Li-Yuan; Deng, Ming-Qun; Zhang, Qian; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(16):1961-1970, August 20, 2020.

Highlight: This review overviewed the concepts of fetal programming and investigate the effects of early-life nutrition on energy metabolism in later life and the potential epigenetic mechanism.

Gut microbiota: closely tied to the regulation of circadian clock in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus

Ding, Lu; Xiao, Xin-Hua

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(7):817-825, April 5, 2020.

Highlight: We reviewed the literature related to the gut microbiota, circadian clock, and T2DM to elucidate the idea that the gut microbiota is closely tied to the regulation of the circadian clock in the development of T2DM, which provides potential for gut microbiota-directed therapies to ameliorate the effects of circadian disruptions linked to the occurrence and development of T2DM.

Practical use of electronic health records among patients with diabetes in scientific research

Shen, Yun; Zhou, Jian; Hu, Gang

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(10):1224-1230, May 20, 2020.

Highlight: This review tries to provide a full perspective on how to translate the electronic health records into scientific achievements, for example, among patients with diabetes. Resource sharing and collaborations are highly recommended among hospitals and healthcare groups.

Maternal exercise and its beneficial effects on glucose metabolism in offspring

Zheng, Jia; Zhou, Li-Yuan; Xiao, Xin-Hua

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(7):863-867, April 5, 2020.

Highlight: This review demonstrated the evidence linking maternal exercise during critical periods of development and its implications for glucose metabolism in offspring, including intervention timing, sexual dimorphism, different exercise type, and intensity.

Gut microbiota and metabolic syndrome

Wang, Peng-Xu; Deng, Xin-Ru; Zhang, Chen-Hong; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 133(7):808-816, April 5, 2020.

Highlight: This article discussed the relationship between the clinical symptoms of MetS and differences in the gut microbial community compared with healthy individuals, characterized by the proliferation of potentially harmful bacteria and the inhibition of beneficial ones.
