The levels of 25(OH)D have been quantified in 42 insulin diabetic pregnancies (DP) through the three trimesters of pregnancy with a total of 177 determinations. In parallel we quantified this metabolite in 114 normal pregnant women (NP) and also in 116 normal controls (NC). In addition 25(OH)D was quantified in 18 (DP) and 19 (NP) at delivery in the 35-37th(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of the present study was to validate the Spanish version of the SAQLI, which is a health-related quality of life (HRQL) questionnaire specific for sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (SAHS), and to assess its sensitivity to change. MATERIAL AND METHODS A multicenter study performed in a group of patients with SAHS (apnea-hypopnea(More)
Osteocalcin and PTH serum levels were measured in 41 insulin-dependent diabetic pregnant women through the three trimesters of pregnancy with a total of 106 determinations of osteocalcin and 137 of PTH. In parallel we quantified these parameters in 90 normal pregnant women throughout the three trimesters of pregnancy. In addition calcitriol, osteocalcin and(More)
Magnesium levels in serum, as well as 24-hr urine and 2-hr post-fasting urine levels, were studied in 107 pregnant women, who were later separated into two groups. One group was advised to follow their usual intake, and the other, to supplement the diet with 750 cc of milk. The control group (30 healthy non-pregnant women) underwent the same protocol.(More)
Almost all the information about the effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) comes from clinical trials involving only middle-aged patients. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of CPAP treatment in elderly patients with severe OSA on clinical, quality-of-life and neurocognitive(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of adenosine monophosphate (AMP) on forced vital capacity (FVC) has never been systematically investigated. OBJECTIVE To compare methacholine- and AMP-induced changes in FVC, as a marker of air trapping, in asthmatic patients treated and not treated with inhaled corticosteroids (ICSs). METHODS Airway responsiveness to equipotent(More)
The influence of seasonal variations and gestation on 25(OH)D3 levels was studied in a group of women from Madrid, Spain, at different stages of pregnancy, during March and September. The objective was to observe the incidence of this climate and dietary factors. No variations were found in serum concentration of the metabolite throughout pregnancy in(More)
Free calcium ion concentration (mmol/l) and pH were determined in whole blood using a semiautomatic electrode system (ICA-1 Radiometer, Copenhagen, Denmark) in 37 normal women, 90 pregnant women (30 from each trimester of gestation), 28 mothers at delivery and their respective newborns. The blood samples from normal controls, pregnant women, umbilical cord(More)
