In 9 of the 14 national samples of diabetic patients assembled for the WHO Multinational Study of Vascular Disease in Diabetes additional laboratory data made it possible to relate manifestations of macrovascular disease to blood glucose concentrations as well as to diabetes duration and to other potential determinants. In five of the samples, serum(More)
The occurrence of late-onset congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency was studied in 60 consecutive hirsute women by means of adrenocorticotrophin (ACTH)-stimulated serum 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) levels. Five (8.3%) women had an exaggerated response (ACTH-stimulated 17-OHP 3,160 +/- 560 ng/dl). All of them had regular(More)
The incidence of neonatal hypothyroidism, as reflected in cord-blood thyroxine and thyrotropin levels, varied from 0.6% to 13.3% in iodine-deficient and normal regions of India (selected districts of Uttar Pradesh and Kerala and the city of Delhi), depending on the degree of environmental iodine deficiency. In populations with a high incidence of neonatal(More)
Six children with untreated congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) were examined by computed tomography (CT). Three cases demonstrated diffuse enlargement of both adrenal glands with preservation of normal configuration and two showed tumorous transformation in one of the enlarged glands. One had equivocal enlargement of the adrenal gland. Even the youngest(More)
In a multinational study, fasting plasma glucose values in 3583 diabetic patients, aged 34–56 years, were related to the characteristics of these subjects and to the presence and severity of microangiopathy as ascertained by standardised methods. The patients were from nine different populations and ranged in number from 193 to 686 per population (London,(More)
In a large series of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus who were screened for autoantibodies, two patients were positive for antinuclear antibodies. Both of these patients developed severe renal disease with the renal biopsy findings of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Multiple autoantibodies and circulating immune complexes were(More)
