Risk factors of asymptomatic reduction of motor conduction velocity of the ulnar nerve across the elbow
DiscussionRisk factors for A-UNE are different from UNE. The prevalence of right side in A-UNE was not due to particular elbow postures. Diabetes is a risk factor, probably because MCV reduction of the ulnar nerve across the elbow was an early manifestation of asymptomatic polyneuropathy in diabetes. A-UNE is associated with narrow CGW as already demonstrated in UNE, even if the OR was higher in UNE than in A-UNE. Only future longitudinal studies will be able to check whether the A-UNE subjects develop symptoms and signs of true mononeuropathy with time.
Scientists at Penn State University developed a wearable glucose monitor that can non-invasively measure glucose levels within sweat in real time. The low-cost sensor consists of laser-induced graphene and a nickel-gold alloy that can detect the very...

A pregnant person's risk for complications, such as gestational diabetes, gestational high blood pressure, poor fetal growth and preeclampsia, increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, a study shows.
BACKGROUND: Retarded task-oriented gait, balance performance and increased fall risk are among the most debilitating problems in patients with diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN). The lower body positive pressure (LBPP) training was recently introduced in the fi...
This study aimed to determine the prevalence of β-cell dysfunction in youth with TS and the impact of traditional therapies on insulin sensitivity and insulin sec retion. Methods: Cross-sectional, observational study recruited 60 girls with TS and 60 healthy controls (HC) matched on pubertal status. Each subject had a history, physical exam and oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Oral glucose and c-peptide minimal modeling was used to determine β-cell functi on. Results: Twenty-one TS girls (35%) met criteria for pre-diabetes. Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) was present in 18% of girls with TS and 2% HC (p-value ...
