WFS1 variants in Finnish patients with diabetes mellitus, sensorineural hearing impairment or optic atrophy, and in suicide victims - Kytövuori L, Seppänen A, Martikainen MH, Moilanen JS, Kamppari S, Sarkioja T, Remes AM, Rasanen P, Rönnemaa T, Majamaa K.
Mutations in the wolframin gene, WFS1, cause Wolfram syndrome, a rare recessive neurodegenerative disorder. The clinical features include early-onset bilateral optic atrophy (OA), diabetes mellitus (DM), diabetes insipidus, hearing impairment, urinary trac...
CONCLUSION: Individuals with DD undergoing PMT presented higher rates of recurrence of periodontitis and tooth loss when compared to individuals without DD. Additionally, the interaction between DD and smoking significantly increased the risk for the recurrence of periodontitis. PMID: 32224545 [PubMed - in process]

This study evaluated a novel composite measure of health literacy and numeracy by assessing its predictive validity for diabetes self-care activities and glycemic control. Methods: Patients (N = 102) with type 2 diabetes were recruited from a family medicine clinic at an academic medical center. Combined health literacy was assessed by combining the results of the Health Literacy Scale and the Subjective Numeracy Scale. Self-management activities were assessed by the Summary of Diabetes Self-Care Activities scale. Hemoglobin A1c (A1c) values were extracted from patients' medical records to assess glycemic control. Path ...

ConclusionsWeight loss after EGJR is sustained up to 5 years after revision with little effect on medical comorbidities. Patients with a greater reduction in stoma diameter experienced superior weight loss.
In this study, wound-related outcomes are examined, comparing patients who underwent surgery before (Group 1) versus after (Group 2) this intervention. Statistical analysis performed utilizingt tests and Chi square analysis;p

Purpose: Diabetes mellitus (DM) induces changes in corneal biomechanical properties. The influence of disease-specific factors was evaluated, and a novel DM index was created. Methods: Eighty-one patients with DM and 75 healthy subjects were matched according to age, intraocular pressure, and central corneal thickness. Information on the disease was collected, and measurements with the Ocular Response Analyzer and the Corvis ST were taken. Results were compared between the groups, and the influence of disease-specific factors was evaluated. From dynamic corneal response parameters, a DM index was calculated. Results:...
Conclusions: FAB in combination with conventional treatment may be successfully used in the management of refractory PEDs. No adverse effects arising from FAB treatment were observed.
