BACKGROUND We compared the factors that might impact the severity and the prognosis of carbamazepine (CBZ) intoxication in children, as well as the efficacy levels of the treatment options. MATERIAL AND METHODS Demographic information and clinical and laboratory findings for 40 patients were evaluated retrospectively. Predictive parameters for the development of serious complications were studied. RESULTS Median age of patients was 14 years; 65% of the patients were female. The most common pathological clinical finding and laboratory abnormality were inability to awaken the patient and hyperglycemia (45% and 60%, respectively)...

Previous studies on patient and allograft outcomes of obese kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) remain controversial. To what extent obesity-related comorbidities contribute to adverse outcomes, however, hasn't been addressed. We studied all KTRs from 2005 to 2012. 29 (4%), 317 (48%), 217 (33%), 76 (12%), and 21 KTRs (4%) were identified as underweight, normal-weight, overweight, obese, and morbid obese, respectively. 33 of 97 obese KTRs (34%) had pre-existent diabetes. Samples were collected before transplantation and at +1, +2, +3months posttransplantation...

Blood glucose fluctuations have higher risk than absolute blood glucose level in diabetic chronic complications. At present, "dawn phenomenon" is well known by clinicians, but "dusk phenomenon" has not been recognized. This study explored the objective existence of "dusk phenomenon" (spontaneous and transient predinner hyperglycemia) and its clinical significance.The data of 54 patients with diabetes, who received routine insulin pump therapy between December 2010 and October 2012 in our hospital, were retrospectively analyzed...

BACKGROUND Postprandial hypotension, induced by an absorption of glucose from intestine, could be treated by acarbose; however, it was unclear whether dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor reduced postprandial hypotension. CASE REPORT A 78-year-old woman who had experienced episodes of dizziness and hypotension after eating was admitted to our hospital. During 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, there were repeated episodes of marked postprandial hypotension; i.e., a significant systolic blood pressure reduction within two hours after eating (from -58 to -64 mm Hg after meals)...

CONTEXT: Risk of obstetric complications increases linearly with rising maternal glycaemia. Testing HbA1c is an effective option to detect hyperglycemia but its association with adverse pregnancy outcomes remains unclear. Emerging data sustains that an early HbA1c≥5.9% could act as a pregnancy risk marker. OBJECTIVE: To determine, in a multi-ethnic cohort, whether an early ≥5.9% HbA1c could be useful to identify women without diabetes mellitus at increased pregnancy risk...

Systemic complications related to acute pancreatitis include acute respiratory distress syndrome, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, disseminated intravascular coagulation, hypocalcemia, hyperglycemia, and insulin dependent diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. In practice, the development of diabetic ketoacidosis induced by acute pancreatitis is rare and generally associated with hypertriglyceridemia. However, herein we report a case of a 34-year-old female without hypertriglyceridemia, who was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis complicated with diabetic ketoacidosis...

BACKGROUND: The standard treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis involves intravenous infusion of regular insulin until recovery of the episode: this is associated with high costs. Coadministration of insulin glargine from the onset of management may prove beneficial, potentially avoiding rebound hyperglycemia, and hopefully improving the time to resolution of the disease. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and CENTRAL for randomized controlled trials comparing coadministration of insulin glargine versus standard treatment in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis...

A tumor consisting of an adenocarcinoma component and a neuroendocrine carcinoma component, with each component accounting for at least 30% of the tumor, is defined as a mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC). We report a case of MANEC of the pancreas. A 63-year-old man presented with hyperglycemia and was referred to our hospital for further examination. Abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed a mass of 2 cm in size in the pancreas head with portal vein narrowing. Fluorin-18 fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) CT revealed increased accumulation in the mass of the pancreas head...

BACKGROUND: Adjunctive corticosteroids therapy is an attractive option for community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) treatment. However, the effectiveness of adjunctive corticosteroids on mortality of CAP remains inconsistent, especially in severe CAP. We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of adjunctive corticosteroids in severe CAP patients. METHODS: Three databases of PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane Library were searched for related studies published in English up to December, 2015...

REVIEW
Natasha B Khazai, Osama Hamdy
In hospitalized patients, both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia have been associated with poor outcomes. During the inpatient period, hyperglycemia has been associated with increased risk of infection, cardiovascular events, and mortality. It is also associated with longer length of hospital stay. Hypoglycemia has also been associated with an increased risk of mortality. Therefore, current evidence supports avoidance of both conditions among hospitalized patients whether they are admitted to critical care units or noncritical care units...
