Increased oxidative stress associated with angiogenic growth factors in preeclampsia

Kulkarni A. , Mehendale S. , Pisal H. , Kilari A. , Joshi S.

Hyperperhomocysteine has been implicated in vascular changes and oxidative stress contributing to endothelial dysfunction in preeclampsia. Our earlier studies have shown increased oxidative stress leading to reduced docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) levels in pre-eclamptic women. The present study examines the levels of angiogenic factors (VEGF, PlGF sFlt-1), homocysteine and oxidative stress marker malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, in 90 normotensive (control) and 137 preeclamptic women...

The aim of study was to recurrently follow quality of life in type 1 diabetes patients after multiple educations and counseling. Ninty six patients of the age group of “between” 10 to 25 were initially examined in 2004 and Eighty eight patients of them were reexamined in 2006 after multiple counseling with diabetologist and trained diabetes educator at dia care, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. Quality of life was defined as perceived well being and life satisfaction, glob...

To evaluate and compare the outcome of pregnancies in women with type 1 diabetes treated with continuous subcutaneous insulin pump or multiple insulin injections

Saboo B. , Chandarana H. , Joshi S. , Shah S.

The study was aimed to compare the outcome of pregnancies in women with type 1 diabetes treated with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion pump (CSII) or multiple insulin injections (MDI). Total 14 patients were treated with insulin pump and 20 patients were treated with multiple injections; were mainly investigated for HbA1c, incidence of hypoglycemia, fetal outcome, rates of pregnancy induced hypertension and cesarean section. HbA1c with insulin pump was significantly bet...
