Persistent Hypophosphatemia and recurrent seizures after Ferric Carboxymaltose (FCM)

Subbiah Kasi , Perumal Samundeeshwari

Intravenous iron formulations allow administration of high doses of elemental iron enabling correction of total iron deficit in one or two infusions. An underappreciated complication is hypophosphatemia from increased fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) secretion. An 85-year-old male presented with a second episode of generalized tonic-clonic seizures. The first episode was a month ago, and serum phosphate was 0.2 mmol/l (0.8-1.4). He was treated with phosphate replacement al...

On examination she had fine tremor of her outstretched fingers and no palpable goitre with a regular heart rate. FT4 was 22 pmol/l(10.3-24.5), FT3 7.9 pmol/l(3.5-6.5), TSH 0.02 mIU/l(0.3-5.5), TSH receptor antibodies (TRAb) <0.9 U/l(0-1.75) and TPO antibodies <4 IU/ml (0-35). She was started on Carbimazole 20 mg daily and after being well cont...

Concomitant Graves’ & (?) ectopic parathyroid adenoma

Subbiah Kasi , Kumar Nitin , Sivappriyan Siva , Kumar Jesse

This case illustrates a decision paradox on investigations (to exclude secondary hypercalcaemia) and treatment options (in unresponsive thyrotoxicosis despite supra-normal doses of carbimazole). A 56-year-old lady, who was referred with hyperthyroid symptoms and evidence of biochemical thyrotoxicosis, was also found to have symptomatic hypercalcaemia (constipation & polyuria). Investigations were as follows: FT4 >100 pmol/l, TSH <0.02 mU/l, TRAb positive, Ca 3.0 mmol/l...

Quality improvement project on pilot joint diabetes-renal clinics in a district general hospital in United Kingdom

Subbiah Kasi , Mahmood Aizzah , Perumal Samundeeshwari , Chitalia Nihil , Mohandas Cynthia

Diabetes is the leading cause of end stage renal failure. So, identifying patients at risk and intensifying management of blood pressure, lipids and glycaemic control can reduce and delay progression to organ replacement therapy. The aim of our study was to determine whether our pilot 3 monthly joint diabetes-renal clinics set up in April 2018 was able to achieve targets outlined by national guidelines and whether patient satisfaction and improved outcomes could lead to furthe...
