Total serum cholesterol and triglycerides were measured in 159 Indian patients (134 males) with acute myocardial infarction during their stay in hospital (days 1 and 2) and 3 months later in order to assess whether lipid levels measured soon after acute myocardial infarction represent basal values. Early and 3 month lipid levels were also compared according(More)
Aims To assess growth and factors associated with growth in children born SGA from two socio economic strata in comparison to age and gender matched healthy controls. Methods Retrospective study conducted at two hospitals in Pune, 0.5 to 5 years old 618 children – 189 SGA from Upper Socioeconomic Strata (USS), 217 SGA from Lower Socioeconomic Strata (LSS)(More)
BACKGROUND Life threatening conditions are associated with atypical genitalia in newborns. Analysis of genetic sex provides a clue to the underlying etiology in newborns with disorders of sex development (DSD) and can guide further endocrine investigations. Rapid diagnosis of genetic sex would be immensely useful in this situation. Traditionally used(More)
AIMS To assess growth and factors associated with growth in children born small for gestational age (SGA) from two socioeconomic strata in comparison to age- and sex-matched healthy controls. METHODS Retrospective study conducted at two hospitals in Pune, 0.5-5 years, 618 children: 189-SGA from upper socioeconomic strata (USS), 217-SGA from lower(More)
BACKGROUND With the paucity of available literature correlating genetic mutation and response to treatment, we aimed to study the genetic makeup of children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency in Western India and correlate the mutation with auxology and response to GH treatment at end of 1 year. METHODS Fifty-three (31 boys and 22 girls) children with(More)
Familial isolated growth hormone deficiency (GHD) type 1 is characterized by an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance with varying degrees of phenotypic severity. We report a proband, with isolated GHD (IGHD) with very early growth arrest and undetectable levels of GH. Homozygous complete deletion of the GH1 gene was identified by(More)
