Which factors determine exocrine pancreatic dysfunction in diabetes mellitus?

Which factors determine exocrine pancreatic dysfunction in diabetes mellitus? World J Gastroenterol. 2019 Jun 14;25(22):2699-2705 Authors: Altay M Abstract The exocrine structure is significantly affected by diabetes because of endocrine structure-function disorder within the pancreas. Exocrine pancreatic dysfunction (EPD) is the general name of the malabsorption process resulting from inadequate production, release, decreased activation, and/or insufficient degradation of enzymes required for digestion from pancreatic acinar cells. It is important to diagnose patients early and correctly, since there may be both macro- and micro-nutrient deficiency in EPD. In this paper, EPD, the diabetes-EPD relationship, and the predictive, effective factors affecting the emergence of EPD are briefly explained and summarized with contemporary literature and our experienced based on clinical, lab, and radiological findings. PMID: 31235993 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Levine B, Caccavallo P, Springer B, Meneghini RM Abstract In the current healthcare environment, the postoperative treatment of patients who undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is critical to successful outcomes, patient satisfaction, and controlling costs. Preemptive analgesia and the avoidance of excessive narcotics may help improve the outcomes and satisfaction of patients who undergo TKA because it allows for a more rapid rehabilitation program and reduces overall pain. Various techniques can be used to minimize the postoperative pain routinely observed in these patients. In addition, appropriate pos...

Authors: Sun J, Li Y, Sun X, Liu Y, Zheng D, Fan L Abstract The present cross-sectional study aimed to assess hepatic fibrosis in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients with abdominal obesity and to explore the associated indicators. A total of 615 CHB patients were enrolled and 287 of them had abdominal obesity. The liver stiffness value was measured using Fibroscan. The diagnosis of liver fibrosis was confirmed by a liver stiffness value of>7.4 kPa, and a value of>10.6 kPa was considered to indicate advanced liver fibrosis. The Fibroscan results suggested that the liver stiffness value in patients with abdomina...

In this study, we assessed the effects of pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) on the pregnancy outcomes of women of advanced age using a back-propagation (BP) artificial neural network. We conducted a retrospective analysis on postpartum and hospital delivery data from 1,015 women of advanced maternal age (AMA) hospitalized at the Fujian Provincial Maternity and Children's Hospital from January to June, 2017. Pre-pregnancy overweight was found to increase the incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), hypertensive disorders complicating pregnancy (HDCP) and fetal macrosomia. In addi...
