To investigate glycemic variability (GV) in Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) patients by monitoring continuous blood glucose profile.
ConclusionLSG significantly ameliorated short- and long-term obesity-related comorbidities and body image dissatisfaction among Qatari adolescents.
Abstract Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has many serious consequences, and one of these may be the exacerbation of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Reports on the effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on glucose metabolism in people with T2DM and OSA are conflicting. Therefore, the purpose of this review was to examine the effect of CPAP treatment on glucose metabolism by synthesizing findings from randomized controlled trials. The PRISMA review protocol was developed and registered in PROSPERO. A systematic search of PubMed, CINAHL, Embase, Web of Science, PsycInfo, and Cochrane was conducted from i...
My 74-year old obese, poorly controlled diabetic patient with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, asthma, obstructive sleep apnea has been difficult to motivate to improve his lifestyle and his health. He is bright, sweet and caring but just not very disciplined. At each office visit, we review his medications, review his dietary habits and go through the check list of check-ups for diabetic complications including regular ophthalmology exams and podiatric exams to prevent diabetic retinopathy and foot skin breakdown and infection. His spouse is always present, and we discuss seeing his endocrin...
CONCLUSION: Patients with RA may be at increased risk of OSA secondary to both traditional and RA-related risk factors. Diagnosis with OSA predicts future CVD in RA and may provide an opportunity for CVD intervention. PMID: 28765254 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: As it is impossible to exclude the existence of gastric tumors only in preoperative gastroscopy and ultrasonography, especially as there is a higher risk in obese patients, routine histological examination of tissue excised during bariatric procedures should be considered. Since most of the neoplasms were found to be benign, there is no need to abandon the bariatric procedure if a pathology is found and resected. Bariatric surgeons should always focus on thorough examination of the abdominal and the pelvic cavity, especially in female patients. PMID: 28694898 [PubMed - in process]
