Background and Objectives: Different definitions for the metabolic syndrome (MS) exist.Established criteria for diagnosis includes: raised blood pressure, dysglycemia, dyslipidemia, and obesity, but the used thresholds differed. Individual patients with MS need to be identified to reduce future complications. We aimed to determine the characteristics of subjects identified from healthy population to have MS by NCEP-ATP III, IDF and the consensus definition by IDF and AHA/NHLBI...

Serum vitamin D and parathormone (PTH) concentrations as predictors of the development and severity of diabetic retinopathy.

Naguib R. , Abdel Fattah M.

Introduction: Vitamin D is suggested to be an inhibitor of angiogenesis. The degree of severity of Diabetic retinopathy (DR) may be related to serum Vitamin D concentration so this study aims at investigating vitamin D and parathormone (PTH) concentrations as predictors of the development and severity of diabetic retinopathy.Material and methods: Levels of vitamin D [25(OH) D3 and Calcitriol] and PTH were measured in 200 diabetic patients presenting with...

Recurrent hypoglycaemia with hyponatraemia during illness: what lies beneath?

Eames Tom , Puthi Vijith R

Hypoglycaemia is a one of the commonest presentation of an ill child. Hyponatraemia during illness is mostly presumed to be related to syndrome of inappropriate anti diuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). We would like to present an interesting case of hypoglycaemia and hyponatraemia.A four-year-old boy presented with a two-day history of intermittent fever, vacant episodes, and seizures. He was noted to be hypoglycaemic with laboratory glucose of 1.2 mmol/...
