Bi-directional relationship of Diabetes and Depression and use of Pioglitazone for the treatment of Depression Role: Master's Thesis/In depth Literature review at University of Michigan under Dr.
Carrie Ferrario There is abundant literature which indicate that depression and type 2 diabetes are related, but the direction of the association is undetermined.
My goal was to study/investigate the clinical and pre-clinical research that support the rationale for studying Pioglitazone in the treatment of depressive disorders.
The currently available evidence in literature stating the anti-depressant properties of pioglitazone is limited.
Animal studies conducted to demonstrate the anti-depressant effects of pioglitazone are restricted to acute and sub chronic treatment strategies and therefore did not serve as definitive proof of their antidepressant effects.
Moreover, the clinical studies done on human population was limited by open label design and small sample size.
The scientific evidence available so far are encouraging, but are not definitive.
Investigative strategies should certainly include additional prospective studies of diabetic patients with comorbid depression, as well as studies of genetic susceptibilities or neurobiological mechanisms common to both these debilitating disorders Research Topic: A Patient centered interdisciplinary team based care approach to improve quality of life and self-efficacy in adults with Asthma.
Role: Research Assistant at University of Toledo under Dr.
Kevin Phelps Asthma is a chronic condition with episodes of acute exacerbations encountered commonly by primary care physicians in the outpatient setting.
The prevalence of asthma is 8.2% in the US according to the 2011 National Institute of Health survey.
My responsibilities included: Discuss the role of self-efficacy and quality of life in asthma patients.
Both self-efficacy and quality of life are inter-related and play significant roles in the outcomes related to the management of asthma.
Discuss patient-centered interdisciplinary team-based care for asthma patients.
Interdisciplinary team-based patient centered care is needed to address a chronic relapsing and remitting condition like asthma.
Execute an individualized Asthma Action Plan in a family medicine setting.
Self-management support and involvement of the patient in the decision making process regarding control of their asthma leads to better outcomes.
