Eating disorders and diabetes: behavioural patterns and psychopathology. Two case reports.

Eating disorders and diabetes: behavioural patterns and psychopathology. Two case reports. Riv Psichiatr. 2020 Jul-Aug;55(4):240-244 Authors: Lorettu L, Pes GM, Dore MP, Milia P, Nivoli A Abstract The relationship between eating disorders and diabetes is complex in terms of both reciprocity and comorbidity. In some cases, patients with eating disorders and diabetes develop 'purging' behaviours through the use of insulin as a bodyweight control tool, with serious physical complications that can compared to those of untreated diabetes (diabulimia). The clinical cases presented have in common the distorted use of insulin: one patient failed to take the required amounts of insulin, incurring hyperglycaemia, while the other overused it, incurring hypoglycaemia. From a psychopathological point of view, both patients were diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. While these are just two case reports, it is our clinical experience that female diabetic patients with eating disorders who use insulin as a tool for weight control (purging) following binge eating should be assessed for borderline personality disorder in order to tailor a more effective therapeutic approach.

Authors: Han R, Jiang X Abstract The patient in the present case report, a 27-year-old man, was diagnosed with Graves' disease and hypokalemia. The patient was treated with methimazole and intermittent potassium supplementation. Following treatment, the patient was still suffering from fatigue, accompanied by palpitations, a hand tremor, fear of heat and sweating. Hypoglycemia was revealed by monitoring fingertip blood glucose levels. The laboratory investigations indicated that serum insulin levels were significantly elevated (>1,000 µIU/ml), the test for serum insulin autoantibody (IAA) was positive, and...

Patients presenting type 2 diabetes appear paradoxically protected from the appearance and the evolution of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Immune cells take an active part in the weakening of the aortic wall of AAAs, with an important role of the macrophages. Their pro or anti-inflammatory phenotype is partly determined by the cellular metabolism. We hypothesized that diabetes could influence the metabolic phenotype of the macrophages, and thus explain the protective role of diabetes in AAAs.

Background: The prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is increasing worldwide. Therefore, we sought to determine the most important predictors of NAFLD among middle ‑aged men and women in Isfahan, Iran.Methods: A total of 413 individuals (163 men and 250 women) aged 30 –60 years were selected by stratified random sampling. The participants had safe alcohol consumption habits (

This study was a cross ‑sectional study. The number of 376 diabetic patients referred to the Diabetes ResearchCenter in Yazd entered the study. The data collection tool was a summary of Diabetes Self CareActivity questionnaire (SDSCA), which was collected through interviews with patients. Dataanalysis was performed using SPSS software V 16 and kruskalwallis and independent sample t tests.Results: The results showed that of 376 patients, 218 (%58) were women and 158 (%42) were male.The mean age of the participants in the study was 54.5 ± 10.9 years old and the mean durationof the disease was 9.53 ± 8.39 year...

Authors: Atal MK, Palei SK, Chaudhary DK, Kumar V, Karmakar NC Abstract Whole-body vibration (WBV) is one of the leading risk factors for the development of musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) that develops symptoms of lower back pain, pain in neck and shoulders, digestive problems, blood pressure and diabetes among professional dumper operators. The present study is specifically aimed at assessing the WBV exposure of 79 dumper operators engaged in two Indian opencast coal mines through vibration measurements followed by questionnaire survey. From daily frequency-weighted rms exposure A(8), it is found that dumper opera...

CONCLUSIONS: The factors associated with hypertension awareness, treatment, and control were different by sex and age group. Enhancing attention on hypertension among young hypertension and encouraging them to visit clinics would be key strategies to improve hypertension management among the young hypertensive population.

i Uhl Despite the nowadays available plentitude of strategies to selectively introduce functional surface modification of liposomes, in preclinical research this process is still primarily performed after liposomal preparation utilizing comprised activated phospholipids with functionalized head groups. However, because these activated lipids are present during the liposomal preparation process, they can cross-react with incorporated drugs, especially the particularly often utilized active esters and maleimide groups. Macromolecular drugs, being composed of amino acids, are particularly prone to such cross-reactions ...
