Usefulness of home blood pressure measurement in the morning in type 2 diabetic patients.
TLDR
Elevations of HBP in the morning in diabetic patients are strongly related to microvascular and macrovascular complications, especially nephropathy, and it is concluded that the control of MH may prevent vascular complications in type 2 diabetic patients. Expand
Acute aquaresis by the nonpeptide arginine vasopressin (AVP) antagonist OPC-31260 improves hyponatremia in patients with syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH).
TLDR
Results indicate that OPC-31260 is an effective therapeutic agent for hyponatremia in patients with SIADH. Expand
Diagnostic criteria for slowly progressive insulin-dependent (type 1) diabetes mellitus (SPIDDM) (2012): report by the Committee on Slowly Progressive Insulin-Dependent (Type 1) Diabetes Mellitus of
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria for slowly progressive insulin-dependent (Type 1) diabetes mellitus (SPIDDM) have been proposed and the presence of IA-2Ab, IAA, and ZnT8Ab were excluded, as it is still unclear whether insulinoma-associated antigen-2 autoantibodies (IA- 2Ab), insulin autoantibia (IAA), or zinc transporter 8 autoantIBodies (ZnT 8Ab) are essential markers for diagnosis.

Visualization of prostate cancer using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI: comparison with transrectal power Doppler ultrasound.
TLDR
DCE-MRI was significantly more sensitive than PDUS for visualizing of prostate cancers without loss of specificity in the peripheral zone, and both transrectal PDUS and DCE- MRI can be used to demonstrate hypervascularity in many prostate cancers. Expand
Usefulness of home blood pressure measurement in the morning in type 1 diabetic patients.
TLDR
Elevations of HBP in the morning in diabetic patients are strongly related to microvascular and macrovascular complications, especially nephropathy, and it is concluded that the control of MH may prevent vascular complications in type 2 diabetic patients. Expand
Patient perceptions of injection pain and anxiety: a comparison of NovoFine 32-gauge tip 6mm and Micro Fine Plus 31-gauge 5mm needles.
TLDR
It is suggested that the diameter and design of the needle play an important role in reducing injection pain and needle anxiety, which is particularly important for insulin initiation. Expand
A quality-of-life assessment of intensive insulin therapy using insulin lispro switched from short-acting insulin and measured by an ITR-QOL questionnaire: a prospective comparison of multiple daily
TLDR
It is shown that QOL of patients treated by CSII is superior to that treated by MDI and demonstrate that insulin lispro has a more beneficial effect on daily activities in patients treatedBy MDI than short-acting insulin. Expand
Comparison of Patient's Preference, Pain Perception, and Usability between Micro Fine plus® 31-Gauge Needle and Microtapered NanoPass® 33-Gauge Needle for Insulin Therapy
TLDR
For overall patient satisfaction in using an insulin needle, developing a thinner needle and improving other factors, such as lubricity coating the needle, are important. Expand
Fulminant Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Associated with Coxsackie Virus Type A2 Infection: A Case Report and Literature Review.
TLDR
This patient is the first reported case of FT1D associated with Coxsackie virus A2 infection and supports the etiological role of common viral infections inFT1D. Expand
Hyponatremia and osmoregulation of vasopressin secretion in patients with intracranial bleeding.
TLDR
Results show that hyponatremia after intracranial bleeding with clinical features almost indistinguishable from those of syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion may result from an impaired renal sodium-conserving mechanism of unknown cause. Expand
