Background: Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disease causes about 5% of all deaths globally each year. Majority of the diabetic patients also do suffer from dyslipidemia. Aim and objectives: To study glycated hemoglobin levels (HbA1c) and serum lipid levels in diabetes patients and to compare glycated hemoglobin levels with their lipid levels in diabetes patients.
Material and methods: The present study was conducted at Gayatri Hospital, Gandhinagar, Gujarat between the periods of January 2011 to January 2012. It was an observational study in which total 60 diabetes patients of indoor as well as outdoor patient department were included.
Results: Out of 60 diabetic patients, 63.33% were male, 65% patients were dyslipidemic and 55% had poor glycemic control. Among poor glycemic control patients, 87.88% patients had dyslipidemia.
Conclusion: A significant correlation exist between HbA1C and lipid profile in diabetic patients. HbA1C can be used as an indicator of glycemic control as well as a biomarker of lipidemic state in diabetics
Is Obesity a Significant Risk Predictor for Adverse Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes in Morbidly Obese Pregnant Women of Middle East Countries?
Obesity has become a worldwide epidemic. World Health Organization (WHO) reports in 2005 indicate that approximately 1.6 billion adults were overweight and at least 400 million adults were obese. More than 2.5 million deaths annually are weight related and this could rise to 5 million by 2020. Nearly two thirds of women in the reproductive age group in United States are currently overweight or obese. The alarming increase in the proportion of obese and morbidly obese young women means that more than a fifth of all pregnancies in the UK and many other developed countries are in women categorized as clinically obese.
Cerebral edema in children with Diabetic Keto acidosis –From a pediatric tertiary care Institute in South India
Cerebral edema (CE) is the major cause for mortality in children with Diabetic keto acidosis (DKA). This study was conducted to estimate the prevalence, risk factors and outcome of cerebral edema in children with DKA. Among the study of 118 episodes of DKA, cerebral edema was encountered in 28 children (23.7%). 93% of cerebral edema was diagnosed either at admission or within 6 hours of therapy
A female infant born out of 3rd degree consanguineous parents presented at 1 year of age with polyuria, polydipsia and glycosuria for 6 months. History revealed motor developmental delay. Investigations showed fasting hypoglycemia, postprandial hyperglycemia, renal glycosuria, generalized aminoaciduria, and renal rickets. Genetic evaluation revealed a novel mutation in exon2 of SLC2A2 a T-to-G substitution (c56T>G) confirming the diagnosis of Fanconi Bickel syndrome (FBS).
