  • Sodium Fluoride tubes versus plain tubes for In vitro blood glucose

    • Abstract: Background:In terms of diagnosis and management of diabetes mellitus, the most commonly requested core biochemistry test worldwide is measurement of glucose in blood. Despite the wide use of sodium fluoride (NaF) as the specimen preservative, its use has been critically questioned. Objective: This study investigated the stability of glucose in blood obtained into plain tubes in comparison with sodium fluoride/potassium oxalate (NaF/K2C2O4) tubes in a routine laboratory setup. Methods: Sixty one pairs of blood specimens were collected into plain tubes and NaF/K2C2O4 tubes. Following separation of plasma (NaF/K2C2O4 tubes) and serum (plain tubes), glucose concentration was measured. Five determinants were obtained; the baseline glucose value, glucose concentrations at one, two, four and six hours after collection of blood into NaF/K2C2O4 or plain tubes. Results: A high rate of haemolysis was observed in NaF/K2C2O4 tubes when compared with that of plain tubes (11% vs. 4%). No effect of tube type on serum/plasma glucose concentration (p>.05) was noted until two hours post collection. A significant reduction (p<.001) of blood glucose in plain tubes was observed in comparison with plasma measurements after four hour spot collection. Conclusion: Plain tubes are a better option for collection and processing blood in measurement of glucose if the separation is achieved within a reasonable time period.

  • Low dietary intakes, BMI, iron and aerobic endurance among Sri Lankan
           professional female Hockey players

    • Abstract: Background:Compromised micronutrient or energy intake can influence body composition which could affect aerobic endurance of athletes potentially resulting in poor sports performance.Objective:To study the nutritional status, nutritional intake and aerobic endurance, and to identify potential associations between these parameters in Sri Lankan professional female hockey players.Methods:Professional, female hockey players (n=31) were recruited exclusively from professional clubs and the national team. Pretested questionnaires were administered to assess sport specific data and dietary intake. BMI, haemoglobin, serum ferritin and aerobic endurance were assessed.Results:Total energy intake from the diet was less than the individual specific requirement in 52%. Less diversity in carbohydrate intake observed (approximately 1/3 of total energy intake and 1/2 of the carbohydrates, is from rice). Twenty nine per cent were under weight (BMI<18.5 kg/m2).Over half the players were anaemic (Hb<120 g/L) and 25% were iron deficient (ferritin<15.00 µg/L). Dietary intake of iron was less than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (<18 mg/day) in 90%. Mean aerobic endurance (27.98±6.90 mL/min/kg) (maximal oxygen uptake, VO2 max) was very low. A moderate negative correlation (r=-0.672) (P<0.01) for BMI and a moderate positive correlation (r=+0.538) (P<0.01) for energy balance were observed for VO2 Max. Conclusion: Inadequate and less diverse dietary intakes, low BMI and iron deficiency were observed in this cohort of professional hockey players. Observed low aerobic endurance levels in these athletes is a concern for performance and the nutritional factors that coexist may have played a part. Education on the concept of optimum nutrition for performance in these individuals is warranted. Published on 2018-12-31 00:00:00
  • Body weight perception and weight loss practices among a group of Sri
           Lankan university students

    • Abstract: Background:The increasing trends in overweight and obesity is a public health issue globally. Self-perception of a person’s weight may influence the action taken by the individual in his/her weight management. Objective: The present study aims to evaluate the association between self-perception of body weight, weight management practices and calculated body mass index (BMI) among a group of Sri Lankan university students. Method: A sample of 384 students was selected from the Eastern University, Sri Lanka by using a systematic sampling technique. A self-administered questionnaire assessed the socio-demographic characters, weight management practices and perception of existing body weight. Weight, height and waist circumference (WC) were measured and compared with Asian anthropometric cut-offs for BMI and WC. Chi-squire test was used to find out the association between selected variables and calculated BMI. Results:The response rate was 87.5%. Out of 336 participants, the percentages of those overweight, obese and underweight were 35.2%, 10.7% and 8.6% respectively. Two- thirds of overweight males and a third of overweight females considered themselves as ‘about right weight’ or ‘underweight’. In the obese subjects, 5.3% and 23.5% men and women respectively perceived themselves as ‘about right weight’. Over two thirds of all obese subjects perceived themselves as being overweight. Of those who perceived themselves as overweight or very overweight, 71.2% tried to lose their weight. In the perceived ‘normal weight category, 6.4% tried to lose weight. Conclusions: Body weight misperception was common among overweight and obese students. Among the perceived overweight or very overweight categories, two thirds attempted to lose their body weight. This study highlights the importance of self-awareness of body weight in maintaining a healthy body weight. Published on 2018-12-31 00:00:00
  • Clinico-demographic profile of patients treated for Tuberculous
           Lymphadenitis at the Central Chest Clinic, Colombo, Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Background:Tuberculous lymphadenitis (TBLN) is the commonest form of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis in Sri Lanka. The management of TBLN faces many challenges due to difficulty in achieving microbiological confirmation as well as slow or paradoxical clinical response during the treatment. Objective: To describe the demographic features and the characteristics associated with clinical presentation, diagnostic modalities and treatment outcome of patients with TBLN. Method: An audit was carried out revising clinical records of patients treated for peripheral lymph node enlargement due to tuberculosis at the Central Chest Clinic, Colombo.   Results:A total of 126 clinical records were analysed. The male:female ratio was 1:1.6 with a mean age of 36 years (SD=17.6). The most affected site were the cervical lymph nodes (94%). Mantoux test positivity (>10mm) was detected in 87.5%.  Evidence of granulomatous inflammation in primary investigations was seen in 122 (97%) of patients. Out of all only 12 (9.5%) were microbiologically confirmed including 5 culture positives. The rest of the patients (90.5%) were diagnosed based on supportive primary and ancillary diagnostic tests. Paradoxical reactions were identified in 4% of patients.   Adverse drug reactions including skin reactions and drug induce hepatitis were noted in 17%. Eighty-two patients achieved complete clinical resolution at the end of 6 months while others were found to have residual lymph nodes necessitating further evaluation. Conclusions: The incidence of TBLN was high among females and in the third decade of life, predominantly affecting cervical lymph nodes. The majority were treated based on primary and ancillary diagnostic test results. Prospective   studies are recommended for more descriptive assessment. Published on 2018-12-31 00:00:00

  • Association between GCE Ordinary Level results and characteriestics of
           foreign employment of parents of Advanced Level students in a national
           school in Wennappuwa

    • Abstract: Background: Migration of parents seeking foreign employment has become an important issue, due to effects on their children’s health and educational performance. Such effects can depend on the characteristics of the parents’ foreign employment. Objective: To determine the association between academic performance and characteristics of foreign employment of parents in General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (GCE A/L) students of a national school in Wennappuwa. Methods:A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out among randomly selected 110 A/L students whose parents are foreign employees. Information on socio demographic characteristics, GCE Ordinary Level (O/L) results and characteristics of foreign employment of their parents were collected using a self-administered questionnaire. Descriptive statistics and Chi-square test were used to analyse the data. Results:Majority of the parents of the study participants were employed in Italy (77%), more fathers employed abroad than mothers. A significantly higher proportion of students with fathers employed in foreign countries for less than or equal to 10 years had better academic performance than the proportion of students with fathers employed in foreign countries for more than 10 years (p=0.02). No significant association was found between the child’s academic performance and the category of parent’s employment, country of employment, number of visits to Sri Lanka and the duration of the mother’s employment. Conclusions: The GCE O/L results of this group of students was associated with a shorter duration of employment of the father overseas, but not with the country of employment, category of employment, which parent is employed and the regularity of visits back home.

  • Role of lumbar disc degeneration and genetic variation in chronic low back

    • Abstract: Low back pain (LBP) is a common symptom and leading cause of disability worldwide. The majority of LBP is due to mechanical causes. However, it is challenging to accurately identify a causative factor for chronic LBP and it is considered a multifactorial condition. Lumbar disc degeneration (LDD) is frequently seen in patients with chronic LBP, but radiological features of disc degeneration is poorly correlated with the symptoms of LBP. The role of radiological investigations in chronic LBP is controversial, but it is frequently used in primary care despite the recommendation to use it only on selected patients with serious underlying pathology or progressive neurological symptoms. Pathophysiology of LDD is complex and is mainly genetically determined. Genetic variation may help in classifying varying degrees of LBP in patients with LDD. Improved understanding of the role of radiological features in LDD and genetic investigations help in advancing personalized care and implementing innovative strategies in the management of chronic LBP.

  • Does inhibitory dysfunction contribute to poor emotional aspect of eating
           behaviours in obesity' A study among a sample of young adults in
           Colombo District, Sri Lanka.

    • Abstract: Background:Recent studies have suggested that poor inhibitory control can lead to poor emotional aspect of eating behaviour resulting in obesity. Considering this, a study was conducted to assess the association between obesity, inhibitory control and emotional aspect of eating behaviour among young adults in Colombo District, Sri Lanka.Methods:Young adults of age 21–25 years (n=231) were studied. Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist to Hip Ratio (WHR) were calculated to assess the generalized and central obesity, while inhibitory control was assessed through number of incorrect responses in Stroop, Stop signal and Go/no-go tasks. The emotional aspect of eating behaviour was assessed via self-administered Three Factor Eating Questionnaire (Revised-18), which consists of three subscales; cognitive restraint, uncontrolled eating and emotional eating.Results:The mean age of the study sample was 23.4±1.4 years with males comprising 51.9%. There was a statistically significant group effect in mean incorrect responses of Stroop task and Stop signal task scores with normal, overweight and obese individuals (p<0.001). Further, obese individuals reported significantly higher scores in cognitive restraint and uncontrolled eating when compared to the normal counterparts in Three Factor Eating Questionnaire Revised-18 (p<0.05). Among high WHR categories for males and females, there was a significantly higher incorrect response scores in Stroop task when compared to the normal WHR subjects (p<0.001). Three Factor Eating Questionnaire Revised-18 scores revealed that both males and females of high WHR category had a higher but insignificant cognitive restraint, uncontrolled eating and emotional eating when compared with normal WHR individuals (p>0.05). A positive significant correlation was observed in mean incorrect responses of Stroop task with cognitive restraint subscale (r=0.238, p<0.001).Conclusion:Poor inhibitory control with abnormal emotional aspect of eating despite cognitive restraint was seen in those with obesity.

  • Epidemiology and clinical presentation of patients with melioidoisis at
           the District General Hospital, Chilaw

    • Abstract: Background:Melioidosis is emerging in Sri Lanka. Clinical presentation is variable. Underlying risk factors include diabetes.Objective:To describe the epidemiology of patients with culture confirmed melioidosis presenting to the District General Hospital, Chilaw between 2014-2017.Method:Melioidosis was diagnosed in the microbiology laboratory by culture of Burkholderia pseudomallei from patients’ specimens. Isolates were confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Antibodies were detected using the Indirect Haemagglutination Assay (IHA). Epidemiological data were collected frompatients using a questionnaire.Results:Culture positive melioidosis was found in 15 patients. Melioidosis was more common in males and in adults. Clinical presentation was variable. Diabetes was the most important underlying risk factor. The case fatality rate was 40%.Conclusions:This case series demonstrates that melioidosis is endemic in the North Western Province and is an important cause of community acquired infection.
