Lafora disease is a rare inborn error of metabolism resulting in storage of a polyglucosan in tissues including the brain, skin and liver. Four children are described with progressive myoclonus epilepsy and intellectual deterioration in whom this diagnosis was made. In two the diagnosis was confirmed by the presence of periodic acid schiff (PAS) positive,(More)
OBJECTIVE To find a simple definition of partial remission in type 1 diabetes that reflects both residual beta-cell function and efficacy of insulin treatment. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 275 patients aged <16 years were followed from onset of type 1 diabetes. After 1, 6, and 12 months, stimulated C-peptide during a challenge was used as a(More)
The role of SGLT2 (the gene for a renal sodium-dependent glucose transporter) in renal glucosuria was evaluated. Therefore, its genomic sequence and its intron-exon organization were determined, and 23 families with index cases were analyzed for mutations. In 21 families, 21 different SGLT2 mutations were detected. Most of them were private; only a splice(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate disease progression the first 12 months after diagnosis in children with type 1 diabetes negative (AAB negative) for pancreatic autoantibodies [islet cell autoantibodies(ICA), glutamic acid decarboxylase antibodies (GADA) and insulinoma-associated antigen-2 antibodies (IA-2A)]. Furthermore the study aimed at determining whether(More)
There are a number of tests available for assessment of anterior pituitary hormone function. Recent concern has centred on the use of provocative tests for growth hormone release and in particular the glucagon and insulin induced hypoglycaemia or insulin tolerance test (ITT). These tests have been associated with cerebral oedema and death of at least two(More)
