  • The Anomeric Nature of Glucose and Its Implications on Its Analyses and the Influence of Diet: Are Routine Glycaemia Measurements Reliable Enough?

    Glucose is the main inter-organ energy supplying metabolite in humans and other vertebrates. In clinical analyses, its measurement is probably the most performed and used for diagnostic, monitoring and control of the physiological status.

  • Myelolipomatous Adrenal Adenoma and Adrenal Scintigraphy

    Adrenal myelolipomas are usually benign and non-functioning masses. On the other hand, adrenal myelolipomatous adenoma that may mimic adrenal myelolipoma on conventional imaging may be a rare cause of subclinical Cushing’s disease.

  • Autonomic Diabetic Neuropathy Impairs Glucose and Dipeptidyl Peptidase 4 Inhibitor-Regulated Glucagon Concentration in Type 1 Diabetic Patients

    ipeptidyl peptidase 4 inhibitors (DPP4i) could exert their glucagonostatic action through a functional autonomic nervous system independently from insulin secretion.

  • Olfactory Sulcus Hypoplasia Images of a Case With Kallmann Syndrome

    Kallmann syndrome is a form of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism accompanied by anosmia or hyposmia. MR images of midline defects in Kallmann syndrome were rarely seen in the literature.

  • Serologic Screening of Celiac Disease in Patients With Type 1 Diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is an autoimmune disorder associated with increased risk of additional autoimmune diseases (ADs) as celiac disease (CD). The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of CDs in a population of diabetic children along with the presence of any suggestive clinical signs and symptoms of CD and any effects of CD on the patients’ diabetic control and growth.







Multidisciplinary Approach to Prevent Limb Amputation in Diabetic Patients

Diabetes mellitus is a complex disease with clinical sequelae including cardiovascular disease, renal failure, extremity complications, and death. Lower limb amputation is the most serious morbidity and consequence for diabetic patients due to its associated burden on quality of life and economic implications. Limb amputation is caused by a series of complications involving multiple organ systems. Full Text

Risk Stratification of Bethesda III Category Thyroid Nodules

Atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS) carries a malignancy risk reaching up to 50%. Based on the reported malignancy rate in a given population, the clinical practice towards such a category varies. We hereby identify clinical parameters for risk stratification to aid in decision making for either surgical referral or a clinical follow-up. Full Text
