One thousand six hundred healthy subjects aged more than 50 years, residing in Delhi, were evaluated for bone mineral metabolic parameters. High prevalence of osteoporosis (35.1% subjects) was observed in this population. Bone mineral density (BMD) correlated positively with body mass index (BMI) and negatively with PTH levels. No correlation was observed(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid hormones affect bone remodeling in patients with thyroid disease by acting directly or indirectly on bone cells. In view of limited information on correlation of thyroid function with bone mineral density (BMD) in euthyroid subjects, we undertook this study to evaluate the correlation between thyroid function with BMD in subjects with(More)
A retrospective analysis of 632 infants with hyaline membrane disease admitted to this regional intensive care nursery between 1 July 1974 and 31 December 1982 showed that 387 (61%) received mechanical ventilation. The ventilator pressures at the time the first air leak was detected were available from the records of 120 of 154 (78%) of the infants who(More)
Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is very common in pre-term infants. The diagnosis based on symptoms is always questionable. The incidence of GER in symptomatic babies varies from 22% to 85%, but literature regarding the incidence of reflux in asymptomatic pre-term infants is lacking. We used radionuclide scintigraphy to evaluate the incidence of GER in(More)
Resistance to DSCG in acute asthma is greater therefore, than to salbutamol. However, clinical observation suggests that resistance to beta-2 stimulants does also increase with severity of the attack. It would appear probable that only when severity exceeds the point at which measurements can be made with a peak flow meter does resistance to salbutamol(More)
AIM To compare the prevalence of dental caries, dental calculus, and enamel defects in children with cystic fibrosis (CF) and children with other chronic respiratory disorders. METHODS A cross sectional observational survey. One examiner (AN) undertook oral examinations to assess dental caries, periodontal health, and enamel defects in children attending(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Several autoimmune disorders have been reported to be associated with autoimmune thyroiditis and may coexist with other organ-specific autoantibodies. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the presence of tissue transglutaminase (anti-TTG) and glutamic acid decarboxylase (anti-GAD) antibodies in patients suffering from(More)
