Acute Bilateral Cataract in Patient with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus.

Acute Bilateral Cataract in Patient with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. J Assoc Physicians India. 2019 Apr;67(4):83 Authors: Bhagat AK, Bhardwaj H, Bhardwaj BL, Goyal S, Jaura S, Jain P Abstract Introduction: Cataract represents one of the most frequent eye complications in type 1 DM and type 2 DM patients; contrarily, acute cataract in young diabetic patients occurs very rarely. Only few cases with acute bilateral cataract - all relatively shortly after the diagnosis of type 1 DM have been reported. It can affect visual acuity from slight visual impairment to complete blindness. Although usually associated with chronic hyperglycaemia, it may also occur on rapid restoration of euglycaemia.1 Early detection of diabetes and adequate glycaemic control, particularly in female adolescents, may prevent this debilitating complication of diabetes.

However, the bioavailability, the extent and the rate at which these drugs reach the target tissue are highly dependent on the carrier and on the route of administration. Among the multitude of biocompatible polymers used to design vehicles for macromolecu...

Here, we confirmed the inducible effects of high glucose (HG) and HG followed by normal glucose (HN) upon the proliferation and the tube formation capacity of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs), as well as the suppressive effects of HG and HN...

Authors: Ozen S, Akinci B, Oral EA Abstract Lipodystrophy is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by lack of body fat, which can be genetic or acquired. Lipodystrophy is associated with insulin resistance that can develop in childhood and youth, and usually leads to severe metabolic complications. Diabetes mellitus, hypertriglyceridemia, and hepatic steatosis ordinarily develop in these patients, and most girls suffer from menstrual abnormalities. Severe complications develop at a relatively young age, which include episodes of acute pancreatitis, renal failure, cirrhosis, and complex cardiovascular dis...

Conclusion: Obesity prevalence of our T1D cohort is similar to healthy population in the same ages. Prevalence of MetS is higher in children and adolescents with T1D compared to the obese population in our country. Our study suggests that IDF criteria are more suitable for the diagnosis of MetS in children and adolescents with T1D. PMID: 31434460 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractAfrican Americans and ethnic minorities experience racial discrimination in a variety of settings. Racial discrimination is a potent stressor that has been linked to psychosocial stress and poor physical health. To cope with discriminatory experiences and daily life event stressors, African Americans frequently use the concept of John Henryism (a high effort coping strategy with prolonged exposure to stress). This cross-sectional analysis explored the relationship between racism/discrimination, John Henryism, and health problems in a predominately African American sample. Data were collected through health care scr...

Abstract PURPOSE: The present study aimed to investigate the prevalence, characteristics, and clinical significance of concomitant specific cardiomyopathies in subjects with bicuspid aortic valves (BAVs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 1186 adults with BAV (850 males, mean age 56±14 years) at a single tertiary center were comprehensively reviewed. Left ventricular non-compaction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy were confirmed when patients fulfilled current clinical and echocardiographic criteria. Clinical and echocardiographic characteristics, including comorbidit...
