AIMS/HYPOTHESIS FTO gene single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been shown to be associated with obesity-related traits and type 2 diabetes. Several small studies have suggested a greater than expected effect of the FTO rs9939609 SNP on weight in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). We therefore aimed to examine the impact of FTO genotype on BMI and(More)
INTRODUCTION Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is a crucial element of clinical care in type 1 diabetes, but it may not provide adequate glucose control. A newer alternative approach is continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system, which allows a more thorough metabolic control. However, the results of trials comparing CGM with SMBG are inconsistent.

OBJECTIVE Pregnancy in type 1 diabetes requires excellent glycemic control. Most pregnant type 1 diabetic women achieve normoglycemia; however, there is scarce data on their postdelivery characteristics. We aimed to examine postpregnancy glycemic control and weight changes in type 1 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We identified and followed (median(More)

Few cases of pharyngeal actinomycosis have been documented in the literature. We describe the case of a 67-year-old white man who presented with symptoms of dysphagia. Laryngoscopy revealed a pedunculated mass in the left posterior pharyngeal wall; an excisional biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. Postoperatively, the patient underwent 10 weeks of intravenous(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess whether high-resolution impedance manometry (HRIM) could be used to assess bolus retention similar to the timed barium esophagram (TBE). METHODS Twenty achalasia patients (10 males, aged 21-79 years) were prospectively evaluated with HRIM and TBE to determine the correlation between barium column height and(More)
