Diabetes in the elderly: adherence and particularities of treatment

Mizouri Ramla , Mahjoub Faten , Ben Othman Rym , Ben Amor Nadia , Olfa Berriche , Henda Jamoussi

Introduction: Elderly diabetics are often fragile patients at high cardiovascular risk. The medical, human and socio-economic impact of diabetes is heavy in the elderly. Symptoms in this particular population are often insidious and atypical, which can delay diagnosis and the establishment of effective treatment. Indeed, management is not always easy because it must take into account multiple parameters. The objective of our study was to study the observance and particularitie...

Prevalence of non alcoholic fatty liver disease and fibrosis in morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery

Khalaf Rahma , Mahjoub Faten , Ben Amor Nadia , Berriche Olfa , Jamoussi Henda

Background: Patients undergoing bariatric surgery have a higher prevalence of non alcoholic liver fatty disease (NAFLD) than the general population; however, its assessment and the accurate staging of fibrosis are often complicated because noninvasive tests are not very accurate in patients with morbid obesity, and liver biopsy cannot be performed as a routine exam. Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of non alcoholic fatty liver d...

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy Findings in a group of morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery

Khalaf Rahma , Mahjoub Faten , Amor Nadia Ben , Berriche Olfa , Jamoussi Henda

Background: Studies of morbid obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery (BS) have revealed that obesity is related with an increased prevalence of endoscopic and histologic gastritis. Performing esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) prior to BS allows the detection and treatment of Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) infection which is considered to be limiting access to bariatric surgery.Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of gastric lesi...
