Diabetic ketoacidosis occurring in the patient whom newly started insulin glargine U300: a case report

Onur Kirac Cem , Ipekci Suleyman , Kebapcilar Levent

Basal insulin secretion is essential for the maintenance of fasting glucose levels, especially through inhibition of excessive hepatic glucose output. Insulin glargine U300 is a novel long acting basal insulin formulation that provides more stable effect than glargine U100. Because of the pharmacokinetic properties of glargine U300, the expected plasma insulin concentration is not achieved during the first 4 days of treatment. We report a case of diabetic ketoacidosis in the f...

Development of fatal lactic acidosis after inadvertent use of metformin in a non-diabetic hemodialysis patient

Akgur Suat , Oruc Aysegul , Yildiz Abdulmecit , Ersoy Canan , Gullulu Mustafa , Ersoy Alparslan

Metformin is considered to be the first choice in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Lactic acidosis is a rare life-threatening complication of metformin with approximately 50% overall mortality. Metformin is contraindicated in patients with factors predisposing to lactic acidosis such as impaired renal function (eGFR <30 mL/min). Herein, we present a hemodialysis patient who developed lactic acidosis after inadvertent usage of metformin.Case...

Effect of hemoglobin J variant on HbA1c values as measured by HPLC (high-perfomance liquid chromatography)

Ares Blanco Jessica , Bernardo Gutierrez Angel , Martin-Nieto Alicia , Gonzalez-Martinez Silvia , Delgado-Alvarez Elias , Menendez-Torre Edelmiro

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) is used for the long-term management of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Hemoglobin variants other than HbA1c and e-N-lysine-glycated HbA0 may cause analytical interference in determinations of HbA1c. Hemoglobin J is an abnormal hemoglobin, an alpha globin gene variant and present in various geographic locations. Hemoglobin J (depending on its type) has different characteristics and functions. For example hemoglobin J Capetown (α2 92Gln β2...

Bolayir Basak , Karakoc Mehmet Ayhan , Deniz Muzaffer Serdar , Altinova Alev , Akturk Mujde , Yurumez Busra , Toruner Fusun , Yetkin Ilhan

Insulin autoimmune syndrome (IAS) is a rare cause of hypoglycemia and characterized with autoantibodies to insulin in a patient without prior exposure to exogenous insulin. Medications with sulfydryl group and autoimmune diseases are known to be associated with this syndrome. Nearly 90% of the cases were reported in Japanese patients. We presented a Turkish patient with insülin autoimmune syndrome possibly caused by α-lipoic acid. A 62-year-old woman was admitted to ...
