Nowadays, at the background of the increase of age-associated diseases, there is an increase in the population over the age of 40 who have prerequisite for the development of diseases with metabolic shifts. There has been a significant increase in the number of people with a genetic predisposition to diabetes, patients with obesity, sedentary lifestyles, chronic stress, smoking and alcohol consumption. Metabolic disorders that occur in patients with diabetes, as well as involvement in the process of the vascular system provides for a multiogran nature of the disease and contributes to the development of complications. The presence of metabolic disorders and changes in the biliary system work has a negative effect on the serum content of fibroblast growth factor (FGF-19). Interesting is the question of changes in the content of FGF-19 with the age in patients with metabolic disorders that justifies the need for further research in this direction. The aim of the study was to evaluate age-related dynamics of serum FGF-19 content in patients with type 2 diabetes assuming the presence of concomitant chronic cholecystitis. 95 patients were examined at the Regional Clinical Hospital. The first group consisted of 62 patients with a combined course of type 2 diabetes and chronic cholecystitis, the second group consisted of 33 patients with isolated type 2 diabetes. Patients of both groups were divided into subgroups according to the age. The control group consisted of 20 healthy donors. The groups were matched according to the age and gender. The duration of type 2 diabetes ranged from 1 to 19 years. Determination of FGF-19 level was carried out by enzyme-linked immunosorbent method («BioVendor» reagent kit, Czech Republic). The obtained data indicate that patients with type 2 diabetes and with its comorbidity with chronic cholecystitis tend to have a decrease in serum FGF-19 content and there is some dependence of this indicator on the age of patients: the increase in the age category of patients is accompanied by a probable decrease in the content of this protein. A combination of type 2 diabetes and chronic cholecystitis revealed a more negative effect of nosologies on the content of FGF-19 compared to the isolated course of type 2 diabetes, which is the result of additional negative involvement of bile acids in the pathological process.
