The results of OSAS patients in our clinic

Background: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a syndrome characterized by respiratory patterns such as recurrent apnea or hypopnea during sleep and usually with desaturation. We aimed to present comorbid conditions of patients admitted to our clinic with OSAS diagnosis.Method: The records of 1969 patients who admitted to Sleep Disorders Laboratory of the Faculty of Medicine, Dicle University between 2008 and 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. The demographic characteristics, severity of OSAS, comorbidities of these patients were evaluated.Results: The apnea hypopnea index (AHI) of 529 patients was normal, 357 patients had mild, 345 patients had moderate and 740 patients had severe OSAS. Patients with normal AHI were taken as control group. The average age of the groups was close. There was statistically significant correlation between hypertension, congestive heart failure, chronic kidney disease and impotence increase with severity of OSAS. Diabetes, COPD, anxiety, hearing loss, and infertility were found to increase with OSAS. No association was found between glaucoma and OSAS (Table-1).Control5>AHI%Mild5≤AHI

Authors: Xie Z, Chang C, Huang G, Zhou Z Abstract Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease caused by the interaction between genetic alterations and environmental factors. More than 60 susceptible genes or loci of T1D have been identified. Among them, HLA regions are reported to contribute about 50% of genetic susceptibility in Caucasians. There are many environmental factors involved in the pathogenesis of T1D. Environmental factors may change the expression of genes through epigenetic mechanisms, thus inducing individuals with susceptible genes to develop T1D; however, the underlying mechanisms remain ...

Hi everyone! I was admitted to a medical school this cycle, but I have recently been going through a bout of pretty bad depression and anxiety. I was hoping it would subside, but I am worried about starting in the fall. Have any of you had any experience with deferring for these types of reasons? If so, did you fully disclose your mental health related issues?
