BACKGROUND: Infants born at 34 to 36 weeks of gestation (late preterm) are at greater risk for adverse outcomes than those born at 37 weeks of gestation or later. Aim of this paper is to examine risk factors for late preterm births and to investigate the complications of the transition period in late preterm infants (LPIs). METHODS: All consecutive late preterm deliveries, excluded stillbirths, were included. Maternal and neonatal data, need for delivery room resuscitative procedures, temperature at birth (T1) and two hours after the admission (T2) were analyzed in all LPIs stratified by Gestational Age (GA) and divided into three groups (34, 35 and 36 weeks)...

Chrysobalanus icaco L. is a medicinal plant present in the Brazilian coastline and known for its hypoglicemic and antioxidant properties. Here, we assessed the beneficial metabolic effects of the aqueous extract of C. icaco (AECI) leaves in diet-induced obese mice. Swiss mice were fed standard chow (SC used as controls) or high-fat diet (HFD) to induce obesity. After 10 weeks, mice on each diet were divided into two groups with one group used as control while the other group treated with AECI for 4 weeks resulting in four groups of mice: SC; SC treated with AECI (SC + AECI); HFD; and HFD treated with AECI (HFD + AECI)...

CONTEXT: Since 2006 a relevant number of therapeutical algorithms for the management of type 2 diabetes have been proposed, generating a lively debate in the scientific community, particularly on the ideal timing for introduction of insulin therapy and on which drug should be preferred as add-on therapy in patients failing to metformin. At the moment, there is no real consensus. The aim of the present review is to summarize established knowledge and areas for debate with respect to insulin therapy in type 2 diabetes...

AIM: This study was a retrospective assessment of the results of bilio-intestinal bypass (a variation of the jejuno-ileal bypass, in which the intestinal blind loop is anastomosed to the gallbladder). METHODS: Seventy-five patients underwent the Eriksson bilio-intestinal bypass since 2003 to January 2009. Mean weight prior to surgery was 115.17 (SD±17.74 kg; range 82-177 kg). Mean preoperative BMI (Body Mass Index) was 41.75 kg/m2 (SD±4.42; range 35-60). Primary criteria taken into consideration have been: weight loss, blood tests, reversal rate and complications...

Diabetic neuropathy represents late diabetes complications, and diabetes duration and long-term hyperglycemia are the main reasons for polyneuropathy. The goal was to estimate the effects of alpha-lipoic acid on symptoms of diabetic neuropathy after 600 mg i.v. for 3 weeks and 3 months of 300-600 mg of alpha-lipoic acid per os. This study has been designed as a multicentric, in 5-centers in B&H, carried out by 5 physicians with 20 diabetic patients each. Following parameters were monitored in 100 diabetics suffering from Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, both men and women: diabetes duration, diabetes therapy, duration of polyneuropathy symptoms, height, weight, BMI (body mass index), subjective assessment of patients, objective examinations of physicians and subjective assessment of physicians...

PURPOSE: Evaluation the hypoglycemic and healing effects of the Strychnos pseudoquina. METHODS: 33 Wistar rats were divided in the following groups, group 1 not sensitized with alloxan and untreated by aqueous extracts; group 2 sensitized with aloxana and untreated by aqueous extracts of Quina; group 3 sensitized by aloxana ad treated with the aqueous extract of quina. Diabetes was induced by alloxan diabetogenic drugs at a dose of 42 mg/kg of weight. The glycemias was evaluated by glycemic measuring Accu-check...

Leandra lacunosa, popularly known as "erva-do-jabuti", is used in Brazilian folkloric medicine for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Based on this traditional indication, the aim of this work was to evaluate the hypoglycemic activity of the hydroalcoholic extract of L. lacunosa aerial parts (LLH) in normal and alloxan-induced diabetic rats. Chromatographic fractionation of LLH was also carried out by several techniques, affording isolation of the following major compounds: ursolic acid (1), kaempferol (2), luteolin (3), and quercetin (4)...

Aim of the investigation was to study safety of therapy with metformin and its effect on clinical, hemodynamic, functional and neurohumoral status in patients with chronic heart failure and type 2 diabetes mellitus DM). Eighty one patients with light and moderate NYHA functional class (FC) II-III CHF, left ventricular ejection fraction < 45%, and DM were examined. As a result of randomization 2 groups were formed: with active (n=41) and usual (n=40) treatment. In active group with achievement of target levels of glycemia 24 (59%) patients were on oral hypoglicemic drags, 17 (41) patients received...

Insulin-secreting tumors are the commonest hormone-producing neoplasm of the gastrointestinal tract. They occur with an incidence of 4 cases per million per year. About 10% of them are metastatic and malignant insulinomas very rarely observed in children and in elderly. We report a rare case of very large malignant insulinoma in a 71-year-old woman admitted in our Oncological Institute on October 2005. She presented with fasting hypoglicemia (blood glucose 35 mg/dl) and high serum insulin levels (insulin 115...

Diabetes is a chronic and invalidating illness, therefore diabetic patients are eligible for home care. In one of the districts of the Veneto region the main data on diabetic patients cared at home were collected, in order to know their main characteristics and problems, and the problems nurses encounter in their daily care. Three meetings were planned with home care nurses, to update their knowledge and render more effective and appropriate their care plans, The main problems are related to a. the lack of a caring project at district level, b...

UNLABELLED: Intraperitoneal administration of 5 mg/kg zopiclone a cyclopyrolone acting on the central benzodiazepine receptors was found to produce significant reduction of total lipids, total cholesterol and triglyceride in rats randered hyperlipidemic by intraperitoneal injection of Triton W-1339. Blood glucose level was also reduced. Flumazenil (10 mg/kg) potentiated the hypoglicemic effect of zopiclone but had no additional effect on serum lipids. PK 11195 (25 mg/kg) antagonized the hypolipidemic effects of zopiclone...

Legumes are characterized as showing interesting hypoglicemic properties. Their presence in the diet is very useful in controlling the level of blood glucose in diabetic people. Taking in mind this property different formulations of prune marmalades were developed using 5, -7.5, 10 and 15% of full fat sweet lupin flour (FFLF). These samples were submitted to chemical, physical, sensory and clinical analysis. The protein content increased from 0.6 to 5.2% in direct proportion to lupin flour concentration. Energy content remained relatively constant in all formulations...

The aim of the study was to assess whether diabetic patients with autonomic neuropathy suffer from arterial oxygen desaturation during sleep. Two groups of subjects were evaluated: group I consisted of 12 patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (five with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and seven with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM)). Group II consisted of 8 healthy subjects. Age, percentage male and body mass index (BMI) were similar in both groups. Exclusion criteria were abnormalities in arterial gas measurements, chest X-ray, spirometry or the presence of cardiac arrhythmias, obesity, uremia, alcohol abuse and use of drugs other than insulin and oral hypoglicemic agents...
