AIM To assess the prevalence and risk factors for diabetic retinopathy (DR) in people with young onset type 1 (T1DM-Y) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM-Y). METHODS T1DM-Y(n=150) and T2DM-Y(n=150) participants, age between 10 and 25 years at diagnosis, had a complete clinical evaluation, biochemical assessment, and four field digital retinal colour photography.(More)
Diabetic retinopathy (DR), one of the leading causes of preventable blindness, is associated with many systemic factors that contribute to the development and progression of this microvascular complication of diabetes. While the duration of diabetes is the major risk factor for the development of DR, the main modifiable systemic risk factors for development(More)
I . Studies were made of the effects of fermentation on the chemical composition and nutritive value of Idli, a product prepared from milled rice and dehusked black gram, and also of Khaman, a product prepared from dehusked and milled bengal gram. 2. Fermentation brought about an increase in thiamine and riboflavine contents and a decrease in phytate(More)
Alkaline phosphatase is detected in both soluble and particulate fractions of rat bone. The concentration of alkaline phosphatase in the particulate fraction of rat skull cap bone and femur is high during the peak period of calcification of these bones suggesting the possibility of using it as a marker for the rate of bone calcification.
Neonatal undernutrition affects the content and lipid concentrations of gray and white matter. Nutritional rehabilitation reverses the deficit observed in gray matter. In the case of white matter the lipid concentration but not the content comes back to normal.
Studies show that yogic type of breathing exercises reduces the spontaneous respiratory rate. However, there are no conclusive studies on the effects of breathing exercise on heart rate variability. We investigated the effects of non-yogic breathing exercise on respiratory rate and heart rate variability. Healthy subjects (21-33 years, both genders) were(More)
