Objective: To assess the relationship between self care practices among diabetic patients and their diabetes control.
Subjects and Method: A total of 400 diabetic patients who were registered at two primary health care centers in Abha City, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, were interviewed within the period from 1/8/20011 to 31/8/2011. Self-care practices of diabetic patients were assessed using the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities (SDSCA). Biochemical laboratory inves-tigations were assessed, including plasma levels of fasting blood glucose.
Results: Most patients were type 2 diabetics (93.8%). Almost half of patients had poor fasting blood glucose control (47.8%), while 27.8% were managed by insulin. The mean scores for all components of practiced diabetes self-care activities were considerably low. The highest mean scores for diabetes self-care activities were foot care and specific diet (3.4±2.1 and 2.4±1.3, respectively). Younger diabetic patients tend to have significantly better mean scores for diabetes self-care. Male diabetic patients had significantly better mean scores for diabetes self-care as regard the items of general diet (p=0.01) and exercise (p<0.001). On the other hand, female diabetic patients had significantly better mean scores for diabetes self-care as regard the item of foot care (p=0.003). Generally, better educated diabetic patients have significantly better mean scores for diabetes self-care. Diabetic patients who had university education attained the highest mean scores for all self-care activities compared with illiterate or school-educated (i.e., primary, intermediate or secondary) patients. Differences were statistically significant for all items, except specific diet. Non-smoker diabetic patients have better mean scores for all diabetes self-care activities. However, differences were statistically significant only for the item of “exercise”. Type 1 diabetic patients have significantly better mean scores for diabetes self-care activities for the items of general diet (p<0.001), specific diet (p=0.007) and blood glucose (p<0.001). Patients with less duration of disease had significantly better mean scores for diabetes self-care activities for the items of exercise (p=0.020) and blood glucose (p=0.007). Patients with good control of diabetes had significantly better mean scores for all items of diabetes self-care activities except the item of “exercise”.

Conclusions: All components of practiced diabetes self-care activities are considerably low. Younger, male non-married educated patients have better self-care activities. Non-smoker patients have better mean scores for all self-care activities. Type 1 diabetic patients have better self-care activities. Patients with good control of diabetes have better diabetes self-care activities.
Recommendations: Health education for diabetes self-care activities need to be enforced. Points of insufficiency as regard diabetes self-care activities should be investigated and corrected. Continuing medical education for PHC providers should include and emphasize the education of diabetic patients on self-care activities.

Abd El-Ghany, M. N., S. A. Hamdi, S. M. Korany, R. M. Elbaz, A. N. Emam, and M. G. farahat, " Biogenic Silver Nanoparticles Produced by Soil Rare Actinomycetes and Their Significant Effect on Aspergillus-derived mycotoxins ", Microorganisms, vol. 11, issue 4, no. 4, pp. 1006, 2023. AbstractPDFWebsite

The current investigation addressed the green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using newly isolated silver-resistant rare actinomycetes, Glutamicibacter nicotianae SNPRA1 and Leucobacter aridicollis SNPRA2, and investigated their impact on the mycotoxigenic fungi Aspergillus flavus ATCC 11498 and Aspergillus ochraceus ATCC 60532. The formation of AgNPs was evidenced by the reaction’s color change to brownish and the appearance of the characteristic surface plasmon resonance. The transmission electron microscopy of biogenic AgNPs produced by G. nicotianae SNPRA1 and L. aridicollis SNPRA2 (designated Gn-AgNPs and La-AgNPs, respectively) revealed the generation of monodispersed spherical nanoparticles with average sizes of 8.48 ± 1.72 nm and 9.67 ± 2.64 nm, respectively. Furthermore, the XRD patterns reflected their crystallinity and the FTIR spectra demonstrated the presence of proteins as capping agents. Both bioinspired AgNPs exhibited a remarkable inhibitory effect on the conidial germination of the investigated mycotoxigenic fungi. The bioinspired AgNPs caused an increase in DNA and protein leakage, suggesting the disruption of membrane permeability and integrity. Interestingly, the biogenic AgNPs completely inhibited the production of total aflatoxins and ochratoxin A at concentrations less than 8 μg/mL. At the same time, cytotoxicity investigations revealed the low toxicity of the biogenic AgNPs against the human skin fibroblast (HSF) cell line. Both biogenic AgNPs exhibited feasible biocompatibility with HSF cells at concentrations up to 10 μg/mL and their IC50 values were 31.78 and 25.83 μg/mL for Gn-AgNPs and La-AgNPs, respectively. The present work sheds light on the antifungal prospect of the biogenic AgNPs produced by rare actinomycetes against mycotoxigenic fungi as promising candidates to combat mycotoxin formation in food chains at nontoxic doses.

Astaxanthin is a xanthophyll carotenoid possessing impressive nutraceutical, antioxidant, and bioactive merits. Traditionally, astaxanthin is extracted from crustacean wastes via solvent extraction methods. However, the rigid structure of shells that comprise complex proteins and chitin challenges the extraction process. This investigation addressed an efficient microbial-assisted method to facilitate astaxanthin recovery from crab exoskeleton waste utilizing chitinolytic and proteolytic microorganisms. Herein, we evaluated the effect of pretreatment of the exoskeleton waste with a newly isolated probiotic strain, Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CPFD8, showing remarkable protease and chitinase activity and a proteolytic Saccharomyces cerevisiae 006-001 before solvent extraction, using acetone/hexane, on astaxanthin recovery. Furthermore, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of the recovered astaxanthin were inspected. Results revealed that both strains boosted the astaxanthin yield from the crab (Callinectes sapidus) exoskeleton compared with solvent extraction using acetone/hexane. Under optimum conditions, astaxanthin yield was 217 and 91 µg/g crab exoskeleton in samples treated with B. amyloliquefaciens CPFD8 and S. cerevisiae 006-001, respectively. Interestingly, pretreatment of crab exoskeleton waste with B. amyloliquefaciens CPFD8 yielded more than 6-fold astaxanthin compared with the solvent extraction method that yielded just 35 µg/g. This increase could be attributed to the proteolytic activity of B. amyloliquefaciens CPFD8 that rendered deproteinized shell chitin accessible to chitinase, facilitating the penetration of solvents and the recovery of astaxanthin. The recovered astaxanthin exhibited excellent antioxidant activity in scavenging DPPH or ABTS free radicals with IC50 values of 50.93 and 17.56 µg/mL, respectively. In addition, the recovered astaxanthin showed a remarkable anti-inflammatory impact on LPS-induced murine macrophage RAW264.7 cells and significantly inhibited the production of nitric oxide, TNF-α, and IL-6 compared with the untreated control. These findings suggest the potential use of the developed microbial-assisted method utilizing chitinolytic and proteolytic B. amyloliquefaciens CPFD8 to maximize the recovery of bioactive astaxanthin from crab (C. sapidus) exoskeleton waste.
