BACKGROUND Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with increased risk of mortality and morbidity for pregnant women and newborns. Identifying pregnant women with risk factors for GDM based on the clinical suspicion is a popular approach. However, the effectiveness of the use of a structured checklist of risk factors is yet to be evaluated. This(More)
The etiology of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) associated with renal failure and hemodialysis is controversial. Possible mechanisms include a shared antigenicity between the kidney and the labyrinths, osmotic alteration caused by hemodialysis, and the ototoxic effect of diuretics. We present 2 cases of SNHL associated with renal failure and its(More)
BACKGROUND Apart from chronic hyperglycemia measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), other vascular risk factors contribute to the development of diabetic neuropathy. Even though these factors are synergistic, no study has measured the relative effect of aggregate cardiovascular risk load compared with chronic hyperglycemia alone on the risk of clinically(More)
Subclinical hypothyroidism is an asymptomatic endocrine disorder while hypothyroidism, on the other hand, can present with a wide range of clinical features which may be nonspecific. We describe a case of subclinical hypothyroidism in a 39-year-old pregnant woman presenting with preeclampsia and ascites. Ascitic fluid was found to be exudative as typically(More)
AIMS The aim was to investigate the frequency and characteristics of persons with latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) amongst patients who had been clinically diagnosed as type 2 diabetes mellitus (CT2DM) in a tertiary care centre. METHODOLOGY One hundred and sixty patients with CT2DM participated in this cross-sectional study following selection(More)
INTRODUCTION Steroids are a useful component of combination chemotherapy or as a single agent in the treatment of haematological disorders even though there are adverse effects associated with its use. METHODS We report four patients who developed diabetes mellitus (DM) during treatment with steroids for haematological disorders despite a negative history(More)
BACKGROUND Persons with type 2 DM have a cardiovascular risk 2-4 times that of the normal population. Co-occurrence of metabolic syndrome (MS) with type 2 DM is associated with an increased risk of development of cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of the MS in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and to compare(More)
OBJECTIVES HbA1c, commonly utilised in Caucasian studies, is an inconsistent risk marker for the severity of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) severity. Other vascular risk factors have been shown to affect DPN. However, no study has examined the relative impact of HbA1c and total cardiovascular risk load (TCRL) on DPN severity. Using the United Kingdom(More)
UNLABELLED Paget's disease is a chronic and progressive disorder of bone characterized by focal areas of excessive osteoclastic resorption accompanied by a secondary increase in the osteoblastic activity. Paget's disease of bone (PBD) is a rare endocrine disease especially among Africans and Asians. Hence the detection of a case in a middle-aged Nigerian is(More)
