Postinfectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN) is primarily a disease of childhood. It occurs after upper respiratory tract infection or skin infections. Streptococcus is the most common causative agent, but in the elderly, staphylococcus is the main culprit. In adults, PIGN is more common in immunocompromised patients, particularly diabetics and alcoholics. Here, we report the case of an elderly diabetic male who presented with severe acute kidney injury with active urinary sediment after acute gastroenteritis. Additional analyses revealed a very low serum C3 level and a normal serum C4 level. Renal biopsy showed diffuse prolif...
In this study, we present a case of a diabetic patient with complicated benign prostatic hyperplasia who presented with acute urinary retention along with bilateral hydronephrosis and acute kidney injury. He was treated with water vapor thermal therapy and subsequent urethral stenting, which alleviated his acute presentation and clinical symptoms. To the authors’ knowledge, there are no reported cases which highlight the use of water vapor thermal therapy in complicated benign prostatic hyperplasia.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewChildren and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) spend much of their waking time in the school environment. However, there is limited empirical understanding of the challenges youth face in managing their T1D at school. There is even less literature focused on potential interventions to improve health or psychological outcomes in youth with T1D in this milieu. This review seeks to summarize the recent literature on diabetes T1D management in the school setting, including recommendations for care, barriers, and targets for intervention.Recent FindingsT1D organizations recommend strong collaborati...
