Associations with low rates of postpartum glucose screening after gestational diabetes among Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian women. Aust N Z J Public Health. 2014 Nov 6; Authors: Chamberlain C, Fredericks B, McLean A, Oldenburg B, Mein J, Wolfe R Abstract Objectives: To explore factors associated with postpartum glucose screening among women with Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM). Methods: A retrospective study using linked records from women with GDM who gave birth at Cairns Hospital in Far North Queensland, Australia, from 1 January 2004 to 31 December 2010. Results: The rates of postpartum Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) screening, while having increased significantly among both Indigenous* and non-Indigenous women from 2004 to 2010 (HR 1.15 per year, 95%CI 1.08-1.22, p

AbstractSitagliptin attenuates left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and may improve oxygen uptake in animals. The effects of sitagliptin on oxygen uptake (VO2) and exercise hemodynamics have been unclear in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and coronary artery disease (CAD). Thirty patients with T2DM and CAD were randomized into a sitagliptin (50 mg/day) or voglibose (0.6 mg/day) group. Patients underwent maximal cardiopulmonary exercise testing. VO2 and hemodynamics were evaluated at rest, anaerobic threshold and peak exercise. Resting LV diastolic function (E ’, peak early diastolic mitral annular velocity...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a common complication of pregnancy associated with significant maternal and neonatal morbidities, including increased risk of pre-eclampsia, macrosomia, and subsequent type 2 diabetes.[1] In most developed countries, universal glucose testing is performed at 24-28 weeks ’ gestation to identify women with overt glucose intolerance.[2] Ideally, women at high risk of developing GDM would be identified earlier in pregnancy to facilitate preventive intervention, enhance antenatal care, and improve clinical outcomes through reduced maternal and fetal exposure to metabo lic alterations...

Diabetes distress (DD) leads to damaging consequences in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM). Few studies have been carried out on the DD among elderly in Iran. The aim of the current study was to investigate the prevalence of DD and some of its related factors on the elderly living in Qom, Iran.

A 77-year-old woman presented with positive fecal occult blood test. Her medical history included non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and spinal cord injury with myelopathy. Physical examination revealed no abdominal distention, local tenderness, or rebounding pain. Patient's cell blood count showed neither leukocytosis nor anemia. Colonoscopy revealed multiple variably sized submucosal cysts from the descending to the ascending colon (Fig. 1A). When they were biopsied after having filled the colon with water, air bubbles leaked through the biopsy orifice (Fig.

ConclusionsOur study demonstrated that hypertension did not independently influence the 24-h urine composition in adults without urolithiasis in China; however, we cannot make such an arbitrary conclusion that hypertension was not a risk factor for urolithiasis.
