BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Diabetes represents a high epidemiological and economic burden worldwide. The cost of diabetes care increases slowly during early years, but it accelerates once chronic complications set in. There is evidence that adequate control may delay the onset of complications. Management of diabetes falls almost exclusively into primary care services until chronic complications appear. Therefore, primary care is strategic for reducing the expedited growth of costs. The objective of this study was to identify predictors of primary care costs in patients without complications in the years following diabetes diagnosis...

World epidemic of obesity reached Poland. Obesity may result in hypercapnic respiratory failure. This complication may be expected in morbidly obese subjects, with BMI 〉 35. Diagnosis is confirmed by arterial blood gas analysis showing PaO(2) 〈 60 mm Hg and PaCO(2) 〉 45 mm Hg. The most frequent cause of respiratoty failure is severe form of obstructive sleep apnea. In approximately 10% of patients obesity hypoventilation syndrome is diagnosed. Diagnosis is established during polysomnographic examination...

The activity of uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1) is rate-limiting for nonshivering thermogenesis and diet-induced thermogenesis. Characteristically, this activity is inhibited by GDP experimentally and presumably mainly by cytosolic ATP within brown-fat cells. The issue as to whether UCP1 has a residual proton conductance even when fully saturated with GDP/ATP (as has recently been suggested) has not only scientific but also applied interest, since a residual proton conductance would make overexpressed UCP1 weight-reducing even without physiological/pharmacological activation...

Vascular rings are an infrequent cause of tracheal and/or oesophageal compression in infants and children. The authors present 11 cases of vascular rings in children from 3 months to 15 years of age. There were: double aortic arch in 5 cases, right aortic arch with left arterial ligament in 1 case, aberrant right subclavian artery in 2 subjects and pulmonary artery sling in 3 patients. The diagnosis was established on the basis of chest X-ray examination, echocardiographic examination, bronchoscopy, angiography and magnetic resonance imaging...
