This study focused on the case of a 35-monthold boy who was referred to our clinic with the diagnosis of diabetic ketoacidosis, and later had a modest elevation in hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels (6.7 %) incompatible with his significantly elevated blood glucose levels. The autoantibodies against pancreatic β-cells were negative. On the basis of these above mentioned findings, our patient was then diagnosed with fulminant type 1 diabetes mellitus. If patients with diabetic ketoacidosis have no elevation in HbA1c levels, they should be assessed for possible clinical factors that can lead to lower detectable levels of HbA...

Abstract Khajavi L, Khademi G, Mehramiz M, Norouzy A, Safarian M. Association of dysglycemia with mortality in children receiving parenteral nutrition in pediatric intensive care unit. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 134-141. One of the most important complications of parenteral nutrition (PN) is a high incidence of hyperglycemia. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of parenteral nutrition dysglycemia on clinical outcomes among critically ill children in pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Charts of 201 critically ill children admitted in PICU during 2012-2015 were reviewed retrospectively. We included patients who were

Design, optimization, characterization and in-vivo evaluation of Quercetin enveloped Soluplus®/P407 micelles in diabetes treatment. Artif Cells Nanomed Biotechnol. 2018 Oct 16;:1-10 Authors: Singh J, Mittal P, Vasant Bonde G, Ajmal G, Mishra B Abstract Quercetin (Qu), is a flavonoid known to have anti-diabetic effects owing to its antioxidant property, thus promoting regeneration of the pancreatic islets, ultimately increasing insulin secretion. But the therapeutic application of Qu is hampered by its low oral bioavailability and its unfavourable physicochemical characteristics. The present work ai...

ConclusionMultimodal VTE prophylaxis demonstrated a low rate of proximal DVT, PE and bleeding complications. The rate of asymptomatic DVT was high, but most were distal and unlikely to be clinically significant. Patients with diabetes and those receiving TKA could be at higher risk of asymptomatic DVT, and may benefit from closer clinical assessment. These findings suggest aspirin is safe and efficacious when used in combination with mechanical compressors and early mobilisation. However, our findings require further validation, particularly with larger, prospective comparative studies.
