Inpatient diabetes management service, 30-day readmissions and length of stayof patients with diabetes

Mandel Samantha , Mathioudakis Nestoras , Golden Sherita Hill , Zilbermint Mihail

Context: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is common among hospitalized patents. An inpatient diabetes management service (IDMS) has been implemented to provide better glycemic control. The impact on length of stay (LOS) and 30-day readmission rates is unknown.Objective: We retrospectively analyzed LOS and 30-day readmission rate of patients with known DM admitted to a 240-bed community hospital in suburban Maryland between January 2016 and May 2017.<p class="a...

Context: Hair cortisol has been recently studied to determine evidence of hypercortisolemia in humans. This test may be valuable in estimating cortisol levels, particularly in patients with cyclical CushingÂ’s syndrome (CS).Objective: To determine correlations with biochemical evidence of CS, and to compare hair cortisol measurements in patients with CS to normative data.Methods: Hair samples from 49 study subjects were collect...

Context: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is a common cause of secondary hypertension, and some PA adrenal tumors co-secrete glucocorticoids, causing subclinical or overt Cushing syndrome (CS). We recently reported correlations between hair cortisol concentration (HCC) and serum and urinary levels of cortisol in patients with CS.Objective: To determine correlations of segmental hair cortisol and biochemical markers of a referred cohort of patients for the eval...

Context: Hypertension is one of the most preventable risk factors for cardiovascular disease and death. Up to 42.1% of non-Hispanic African-American subjects have hypertension. We recently found that germline ARMC5 variants may play a role in primary aldosteronism, particularly in African-Americans.Objective: We investigated a cohort of participants in the Minority Health Genomics and Translational Research Bio-Repository Database (MH-GRID) stud...
