Hate outpatient
MS3 here. I'm interested in a lot of things tbh. I liked neuroscience in preclinical years, but soon realized there was little neuroscience in neurology. I liked radiology, reading studies was amazing. Anesthesia and critical care was brilliant. I liked inpatient medicine and surprisingly, I loved rounds. Now I'm on outpatient medicine and if I have to see another metabolic syndrome patient I will most likely OD on insulin. I posted earlier on how I wanted to pursue a rheumatology...

Your Opinion on Diet and Nutrition
It's quite alarming that in this metabolic syndrome epidemic, there is a divergence of opinion from health professionals regarding an appropriate diet. There is a growing proponent of supporters for a low carb high-fat (LCHF) diet as described in dietdoctor.com, and supported by physicians like Canadian nephrologist and LCHF evangelist Dr. Jason Fung. These proponents argue that the low-fat craze was initiated from poor studies and continued via sugar lobbyists and good ol' medical inertia....

Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 levels are increased and partially related to body fat distribution in patients with familial partial lipodystrophy type 2
Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DDP4) is an enzyme responsible for glucagon-like peptide-1 inactivation and plays an important role in glucose metabolism. (Source: Diabetology and Metabolic Syndrome Comments)

Why is there a young woman advantage? Why is it lost?
The answer to this question has been elusive.  The Women’s Health Initiative was supposed to answer these questions but failed to find the advantage.  During my stent as cardiology champion, the notion of fundamental laws of biology and a model of health and disease began to form.  I used these principles to determine the difference between men and women.  The results of this endeavor are now available on line in the article.  Houck, PD.

Insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome is "just a way of calling people fat, isn’t it?”
Conclusions and Relevance:  These findings suggest that overweight and obesity are risk factors for MI and IHD regardless of the presence or absence of metabolic syndrome and that metabolic syndrome is no more valuable than BMI in identifying individuals at risk.” (Source: Doc2Doc BMJ Cardiology)

response to a comment
Discussion. Paradox effects of vitamin D maybe due to the different doses of it.One explantation could be that vitamin D has it,s effects on insulin resistance in a specific level and in lower or higher level or doses ,it may have paradox effects maybe because of the effects on different genes in nucleus and DNA.The difference of results of different studies about the effect of vitamin D on insulin resistance maybe due to different dosage and serum levels for vitamin D that used in different studies. 3- We suggest a model for predicting Fasting Plasma Glucose. It should be used in more studies and different clinical trial...

Corrigendum
Discussion, and change it from "Although we used lower sex-specific cut-off limits to define microalbuminuria, the prevalence of microalbuminuria in our study population was slightly lower than several previous population studies in Chinese..." to "The prevalence of microalbuminuria in our study population was slightly lower than several previous population studies in Chinese..." 5. In the paragraph B.8.3 of the Discussion, remove the last sentence entirely: "Nonetheless, as exemplified in the present study, in subjects without established cardiovascular disease, such as treated hypertension might...

Infant Forumlas and T1DM
Considering our recent publication in BMC Pediatrics (http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2431/10/63) on the aluminium content of infant formulas it would be extremely interesting to look at how the exposure of these infants to aluminium varied between the control and T1DM groups. We have recently shown that aluminium might have a role to play in T2DM (Ward et al.,(2008) JIB 102, 371-375; Exley et al., (2010) JIB 104, 1125-1129)while exposure to aluminium is known to produce an anaemia which is unresponsive to iron. Of course, aluminium is also a powerful pro-oxidant and one would want to be wary of situations in which the d...

missing letter in author 3 name and an additional space
Dear Post Publication Team, First, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the efforts done by Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrome team, so as to have our work presented in its final format, and published on the reputable BMC. Second, regarding our manuscript, there are two minor comments: 1. paragraph B.9.1, third sentence: [fasting serum insulin (µ U/ml)….], I do not think there should be a blank space between “µ” and “U”. 2. It concerns the authors names, and I hopefully wish you can have it corrected, it concerns author 3, Dr. Lamiaa N Hammad, actually her firs...
