BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) mellitus is a serious implication of obesity. The effect of insulin therapy on levels of inflammatory markers among obese and non-obese diabetics has been inadequately studied. AIM The study aimed to analyze the preinsulin and postinsulin levels of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) and IL-6 in nonobese and obese T2DM(More)
Primary pulmonary sporotrichosis, a rare fungal disease was found in chronic alcoholic farmer from the sub-Himalayan region, an endemic mycoses area. Primary pulmonary sporotrichosis is a hidden entity, at times mimicking tuberculosis, and often under or lately diagnosed due to lack of awareness. We should consider the possibility of pulmonary(More)
BACKGROUND Both hyperglycemia and obesity are known to cause oxidative stress, which leads to many complications associated with diabetes mellitus. A large number of diabetic patients are obese. Glutathione peroxidase (GPx) is an important indicator of level of oxidative stress. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present study, we assessed GPx levels in 20(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus has become a global epidemic illness and poses a threat for development of resistant bacterial infections. AIM This study was aimed to know the bacteriological and resistance profile of isolates obtained from diabetic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The bacterial isolates obtained from various samples of diabetic patients(More)
UNLABELLED Carbapenems are mainstay of treating serious multidrug resistant gram-negative biofilm-based infections. However, recent emergence of metallo-beta-lactamases (MbL) producing gram-negative bacilli in different parts of world may be related to gain of virulence factors associated with biofilm production. OBJECTIVES To explore the association of(More)
Metabolic syndrome is a complex of metabolic factors which includes central obesity, insulin-resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. Metabolic syndrome is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. This study aimed to know the rate of metabolic syndrome in outpatients presenting to medicine department of our hospital and their profile. The(More)
Diabetes and tuberculosis comorbidity is an emerging challenge for public health management. But the diagnostic criteria for diabetes is based on microvascular complications of diabetes and does not reflect the level of hyperglycemia which affects infectivity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Therefore the study protocols focussing on these comorbidities need(More)
BACKGROUND Indwelling medical devices (IMDs) in critical patients are vulnerable to colonization by biofilm producing bacteria. Complex characteristics of bacterial biofilms promote antibiotic resistance, leading to the emergence of resistant device-related infections (DRI), which pose new challenges in their management. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a disease affecting mostly the adults but is being increasingly recognized in children and adolescents. However, the information about the glycemic profile and insulin resistance is scanty. Therefore, the objective of present study was to study the glycemic profile along with the levels of C-peptide, serum insulin and(More)
