In 21 patients, epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) was an early symptom of nonketotic hyperglycemia and occurred during an initial phase of hyponatremia and mild hyperosmolality. EPC persisted for an average of 8 days, and its duration correlated predominantly with the degree of hyponatremia. Depression of consciousness and cessation of seizures occurred(More)
BACKGROUND Dog population management is required in many locations to minimise the risks dog populations may pose to human health and to alleviate animal welfare problems. In many cities in India, Animal Birth Control (ABC) projects have been adopted to provide population management. Measuring the impact of such projects requires assessment of dog(More)
OBJECTIVE Discordance between HbA(1c) and fructosamine estimations in the assessment of glycemia is often encountered. A number of mechanisms might explain such discordance, but whether it is consistent is uncertain. This study aims to coanalyze paired glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA(1c))-fructosamine estimations by using fructosamine to determine a predicted(More)
OBJECTIVE The "glycation gap" (G-gap), an essentially unproven concept, is an empiric measure of disagreement between HbA1c and fructosamine, the two indirect estimates of glycemic control. Its association with demographic features and key clinical outcomes in individuals with diabetes is uncertain. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The G-gap was calculated as(More)
A hypertensive patient with clinical and laboratory features of normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) but with evidence of bilateral multiple cerebral infarcts on computed tomography (CT) did not benefit from shunting. In six reported cases of hypertensive cerebrovascular disease with NPH, the result of shunting was not predictable and was generally(More)
A simple, rapid and sensitive constant wavelength synchronous fluorescence method is developed for the determination of danofloxacin (DAN) in pharmaceutical formulations and its residue in milk based on Al(III) enhanced fluorescence. The synchronous fluorescence intensity of the system is measured at 435 nm using ∆ λ = 80 nm and an excitation wavelength of(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with diabetes have increased frequency of hospital admissions and longer lengths of stay compared to patients without diabetes. Our specialist diabetes inpatient service was reconfigured to deliver a proactive diabetes outreach service to improve the overall care of this population. AIMS To ascertain the effect of a structured diabetes(More)
