OBJECTIVE To examine how children's appraisals of maternal involvement in coping with diabetes are associated with adherence, metabolic control, and quality of life across adolescence. METHODS Children (N = 127, ages 10-15 years) with type 1 diabetes completed measures of adherence, quality of life, and appraisals of mothers' involvement in dealing with(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine how autonomy and pubertal status explain age decreases in maternal involvement in type 1 diabetes management across adolescence, how they relate to metabolic control, and the reasons that guide declines in maternal involvement. METHODS One hundred twenty-seven children ages 10-15 years with type 1 diabetes and their mothers(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined 1) whether the benefits of mothers' and fathers' accepting relationships with their adolescents regarding diabetes control were due to parental monitoring and 2) how parents together may provide sufficient acceptance and monitoring for diabetes management. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Adolescents aged 10-14 years with type 1(More)
The identities and relative amounts of the major metabolites in rat thyroids 6 h after the administration of [14C]propylthiouracil ([14C]PTU) have been investigated. Rat thyroid extracts were chromatographed on columns of Bio-Gel P-2 and DEAE-Sephadex and in various thin layer chromatography systems. The extracts contained protein-bound PTU metabolites; an(More)
Serial measurements of elementary-school children were conducted for 2 consecutive years to assess height and growth velocity and to determine the prevalence of growth hormone deficiency (GHD) in American children. Trained volunteers measured 114,881 children the first year; 79,495 growth rates were calculated after the second measurements. The height and(More)

Pearl millet [Pennisetum millet (L.) leeke] is the main source of food energy for the rural poor in many areas of the semiarid tropics. Epidemiological evidence suggests that millet may play a role in the genesis of endemic goiter in these areas, and sparse experimental data in rats support this suspicion. This study was undertaken to determine in vivo in(More)
