To study the effect of puberty on the relationship between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and parameters of insulin kinetics in obese Asian-Indian children. Material and Methods. The study population included 62 obese Asian-Indian children and adolescents in the age group of 6-17 years. Blood glucose, serum insulin, and serum 25(OH)D were measured.(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with celiac disease, who remain undiagnosed or asymptomatic in childhood, may present in adulthood with either typical or atypical features. METHODS In a retrospective analysis, we reviewed the case records of 45 consecutive patients with celiac disease diagnosed in adulthood. The diagnosis of celiac disease was made on the basis of(More)
Tuberculosis involving the thyroid gland is a rare occurrence. We report a case of cytologically-diagnosed thyroid gland tuberculosis in a 21-year-old man who presented with thyroid swelling of short duration, and describe the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging appearances of the lesion, which to our knowledge, has not been previously described. We also report(More)
AIMS The aim was to study the effect of family history of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) on insulin sensitivity and β-cell function in normoglycemic offspring. MATERIAL AND METHODS Offspring of T2DM patients (cases) and individuals without family history of T2DM (controls) were the subjects for this cross-sectional study. All participants underwent 75 g(More)
CONTEXT Increased prevalence of obesity in childhood and adolescence, defined by the use of body mass index (BMI), has drawn attention towards direct measurement of body fat. OBJECTIVE To develop age-and sex-specific reference distribution of body fat in apparently healthy North-Indian children in the age group of 7-17 years and to assess agreement(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the predictive value of Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT in patients with suspected neuroendocrine tumor (NET). METHODS Data of 164 patients (mean age, 42.5 ± 17.3 years; 54.8% male) who underwent Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT for suspected NET were retrospectively analyzed. Neuroendocrine tumor was suspected based on clinical(More)
The aim of the present study was to predict the development of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) after 24 weeks of gestation by using first-trimester insulin indices. A total of 298 nondiabetic pregnant women underwent 3-hour oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in the first trimester of pregnancy. The normoglycemic women underwent second OGTT between 24(More)
The aim of this study was to validate the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of four candidate genes (TCF7L2, HHEX, KCNJ11, and ADIPOQ) related to type 2 diabetes (T2D) in an endogamous population of north India; the Aggarwal population, having 18-clans. This endogamous population model was heavily supported by recent land mark work and we also verified(More)
Oncogenic osteomalacia, or tumour-induced osteomalacia (TIO), is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome characterised by hypophosphataemia, phosphaturia, inappropriately low serum levels of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D for hypophosphataemia. TIO is caused by mesenchymal tumours that secrete phosphaturic substances, leading to increased renal wasting of phosphates. These(More)
