INTRODUCTION: World Health Organization recommendations of bidirectional screening for tuberculosis (TB) and diabetes have been met with varying levels of uptake by national TB programs in resource-limited settings. METHODOLOGY: Kibong'oto Infectious Diseases Hospital (KIDH) is a referral hospital for TB from northern Tanzania, and the national referral hospital for multidrug-resistant (MDR)-TB. Glycated hemoglobin (HgbA1c) testing was done on patients admitted to KIDH for newly diagnosed TB, retreatment TB, and MDR-TB, to determine the point prevalence of diabetes (HgbA1c ≥ 6...

Diabetic myonecrosis is a rare complication of long-standing diabetes mellitus that presents as acute onset of swelling and pain of the affected muscles. The differential diagnosis includes cellulitis/pyomyositis, necrotizing fasciitis, neoplasm, and deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Missed diagnoses can lead to unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures and inappropriate treatment. The diagnosis is established by the clinical presentation and findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. A 30-year-old African-American man presented with a painful mass affecting the medial aspect of the right thigh for several months...

To study the relationship between glycosylated hemoglobin (HgbA1c) and myocardial perfusion in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients, we prospectively enrolled 24 patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) who underwent adenosine stress by real-time myocardial perfusion echocardiography (RTMPE). HgbA1c was measured at time of RTMPE. Microbubble velocity (β min(-1)), myocardial blood flow (MBF, mL/min/g), and myocardial blood flow reserve (MBFR) were quantified. Quantitative MCE analysis was feasible in all patients (272/384 segments, 71%)...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess an early hemoglobin A1c (HgbA1c) value from 5.7-6.4% as an early predictor of progression to gestational diabetes (GDM). STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study was performed on all women who delivered at a single institution over 2 years who had an early screening HgbA1c test performed at ≤20 weeks of gestation. Women with known preexisting diabetes mellitus or HgbA1c values ≥6.5% were excluded. The primary outcome was GDM development...

Baseline body mass index (BMI), baseline BMI status (normal, overweight, obese) and early (1 month) BMI increases were tested as predictors of 6- and 12-month increases in glucose and lipid measures in 82 olanzapine (OLZ)- and 78 risperidone (RIS)-treated patients with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or bipolar disorder who participated in a 12-month randomized, prospective metabolic effects study. Baseline BMI predicted greater fasting glucose and HgbA1c levels at 12 months for both treatments. Early BMI change predicted fasting glucose levels at 6 months, but not HgbA1c or BMI, at either time point...

OBJECTIVE:  To determine the influence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) on the first trimester serum markers of fetal aneuploidy; pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A) and free beta subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (free β-hCG) and to evaluate the influence of glycemic control on these parameters in the pregnant diabetic women.  DESIGN:  Retrospective study.  SETTING:  Data were extracted from electronic obstetric and laboratory databases at two Danish University Hospitals...

We sought to investigate the peripheral nerve excitability property of early diabetic neuropathy (DN) and provide a logical hypothesis regarding the pathophysiology of subclinical/early stage of DN. The automated nerve excitability test (NET) utilizing the threshold tracking technique (TTT) was performed to measure multiple excitability indices in 30 early DN and 30 normal subjects. Early DN was defined as N0 or N1 stage of Dyck's staging method. The protocols calculated strength-duration time constant (SDTC) from duration-charge curve, parameters of threshold electrotonus (TE) and current-threshold relationship (CTR) from sequential sub-threshold current, and recovery cycle (RC) from double supra-threshold stimulation...

INTRODUCTION: Normoglycemic patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy (Whipple procedure) often inquire whether they will be diabetic postoperatively. There is limited information on this issue. We therefore looked at a more subtle measurement of long-term glycemic control, hemoglobin A1c (HgbA1c), as a prognostic tool in predicting progression to diabetes post Whipple. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review over a 6-year period of all patients undergoing Whipple procedures at a single institution was conducted...
