INTRODUCTION The clinical usefulness of baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) in the early detection of autonomic dysfunction in patients with diabetes is not well established. The aim of the study was the evaluation of BRS in subjects with type 1 diabetes with and without cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN). MATERIAL AND METHODS The group examined consisted(More)
Uncontrolled diabetes has become a major cause of mortality and morbidity by reason of vascular angiopathy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the concentrations of soluble forms of vascular adhesion molecule-1 (sVCAM-1), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1), E-selectin, and thrombomodulin in patients with well-controlled and uncontrolled diabetes(More)
Objective: Decompensated chronic hyperglycemia often leads to late microvascular complications such as retinopathy, diabetic foot syndrome, and diabetic kidney disease. The aim of this study was to determine the concentration of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) and its receptors in patients with well-controlled diabetes. Methods: The study was(More)
Evoked potentials in the diagnostics of central nervous system disorders in diabetic patients Abstract Background. Patients with diabetes suffer central nervous system (CNS) damage which is difficult to diagnose. Examination of evoked potentials (EP) — bioelectric responses of the nervous system to external sensory (SEP), acoustic (BAEP) or visual (VEP)(More)
PURPOSE The aim was to evaluate tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) concentration using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay method (ELISA) in diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) as compared to a group of healthy people and patients with diabetes mellitus without symptomatic vascular complications (DM2T).

OBJECTIVES Giving birth to a chi;d with an excessive brithweight is one of the most common neonate complications observed in the pregnant women with gestation diabetes (GDM). DESIGN The aim of the study was an evaluation of selected factors affecting birthweight in the GDM. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data from 867 pregnant women were analysed. The influence(More)
We report the case of 48-year old patient with carcinoid syndrome successfully treated with somatostatin analogues. We also present the review of published literature about the use of somatostatin analogues in the treatment of carcinoid syndrome. In addition, reported case shows difficulties in access to this treatment, caused by economical reasons.
Our approach to taking care of 122 diabetic pregnant women was presented. At first, they were hospitalized in the Pathological Pregnancy Ward. An intensive insulin therapy (human insulin) was initiated and all the patients were educated. The pregnant appeared as an outpatient every fortnight within the first part of pregnancy and every seven to ten days in(More)
