A Genotype-First Approach for Clinical and Genetic Evaluation of Wolcott-Rallison Syndrome in a Large Cohort of Iranian Children With Neonatal Diabetes
ConclusionWRS is a common cause of PNDM in children of consanguineous parents. Furthermore, clinical diagnosis of WRS would have been delayed or possibly missed without genetic testing because this study shows that the associated features of WRS might be obscured by a diagnosis of PNDM. Therefore EIF2AK3 should be considered for any infant and young child with PNDM, particularly if the parents are related.RésuméObjectifLe syndrome de Wolcott-Rallison (SWR), une maladie autosomique récessive extrêmement rare, est caractérisé par un diabète sucré néonatal permanen...

Storytelling to Support disease self-management among Adults with type 2 diabetes
ConclusionInformal group storytelling enables patients to discuss, understand, and give personal meaning to the information that was exchanged; and facilitates clinical educators to better understand patients’ concerns, gaps in knowledge, and how-to’ strategies that can inform their practice. The group-storytelling intervention is acceptable to patients and facilitators and can be delivered with high fidelity. Further research into effective recruitment methods and evaluation of the intervention's impact on diabetes self-management is required. (Source: Canadian Journal of Diabetes)
