  • Effectiveness of Mobile Call Reminders and Health Information Booklet to
           Improve Postnatal Blood Glucose Monitoring among Mothers with Gestational
           Diabetes Mellitus Receiving Care from a Tertiary Health Centre, Puducherry
           - A Randomized Controlled Trial

    • Authors: Manoharan; Nandhini; Jayaseelan, Venkatachalam; Kar, Sitanshu Sekhar; Jha, Nivedita
      Abstract: imageBackground: In India, around 10% of mothers with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) develop diabetes within months after delivery. But only 29% of them undergo blood glucose testing in the postnatal period. Our study aimed to compare the proportion of mothers with GDM who got postnatal blood glucose checked at 8 weeks among mothers who received health education booklets and mobile reminders.Methods: We conducted a randomised controlled trial among 165 mothers with GDM receiving care from a tertiary health centre between January 2020 and June 2021. Mothers with GDM in the intervention 1 arm received a health education booklet in the third trimester, those in intervention 2 arm received mobile call reminders at the fourth and fifth weeks postpartum, control arm received standard care advised in the hospital; they were followed up at 8 weeks postnatally. We used Chi-square test to compare the effectiveness of intervention and standard care. Relative risk with a 95% confidence interval was calculated to measure the strength of association. A P value

  • C-Reactive Protein Level can be a Better Indicator than Erythrocyte
           Sedimentation Rate in Assessing the Severity of Inflammation and Guiding
           Glucocorticoid Therapy in Subacute Thyroiditis

    • Authors: Baruah; Manash P.; Bhattacharya, Bhaskar; Baruah, Upasana M.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Despite the widespread use of several diagnostic tests in subacute thyroiditis (SAT), their usage remains largely subjective. C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) are useful indicators of inflammation in patients with SAT. The purpose of this study was to compare the scope for utilising CRP and ESR objectively in deciding the requirement of glucocorticoid therapy.Methods: A total of 28 patients with SAT were included in this study. Serum CRP and ESR were measured in all the patients. The characteristics of these tests were assessed firstly by using previously accepted positivity criterion for the particular diagnostic test. The area under the receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve was obtained to provide an index of the overall discriminative ability of both tests.Results: Fifteen out of 28 patients were found to have features of significant thyroid inflammation eventually requiring glucocorticoid based on the current recommendations. The mean CRP value was significantly higher in patients requiring glucocorticoids. The ROC curves indicated that the optimal positivity criterion was 19.3 mg/L for the CRP level and 46 mm at the 1st hour for ESR. CRP with a sensitivity of 0.67, a specificity of 0.92, a positive likelihood ratio of 8.67, and an accuracy of 0.64 appeared better than ESR, which showed a sensitivity of 0.93, a specificity of 0.53, a positive likelihood ratio of 2.02, and an accuracy of 0.60.Conclusions: The serum CRP level provided a clear advantage over ESR in the assessment of the severity of inflammation before initiation of glucocorticoid therapy in SAT. However, a well-powered study is needed to examine the clinical relevance of such a role for CRP in thyroidology.

  • Circulating C-Terminal Agrin Fragment: A Potential Marker for Sarcopenia
           Among Type 2 Diabetes

    • Authors: Racha; Pranathi; Selvam, Sumithra; Bose, Beena; Bantwal, Ganapathi; Sambashivaiah, Sucharita
      Abstract: imageBackground: Undetected onset of sarcopenia among individuals with chronic diseases especially Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2D) makes it important to be evaluated. The feasibility of diagnosing sarcopenia in a clinical setup might be a difficult task. Circulating markers including C-terminal agrin fragment (CAF) are emerging as an alternative. Hence, the objectives of the study were to compare circulating CAF levels between T2D, prediabetes (PD) and healthy controls and to study its association with sarcopenic index, muscle mass, strength and quality.Methods: Ninety-nine participants (n = 42, T2D; n = 33, PD; n = 24, healthy controls) aged 18 to 60 yrs were recruited. HOMA (homeostatic model assessment) indices were derived using plasma glucose and insulin. All participants underwent lipid profiling, muscle strength including quality (isokinetic dynamometer), body composition (Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA)) and sarcopenic index (appendicular skeletal muscle mass/body weight) assessment. Serum samples were used to estimate CAF levelsusing enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).Results: Median CAF level was significantly higher among T2D group compared to PD and control groups (P < 0.0001). Circulating CAF levels correlated positively with age and glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) (both, P < 0.001) and negatively with HOMA-B and muscle quality (both, P < 0.001), and sarcopenic index (P = 0.07). Multivariable analysis demonstrated that the odds of being in the highest tertile category was 7.67, 95% C.I. (2.10, 29.3) among T2D.Conclusion: Circulating CAF levels were significantly higher among T2D compared to PD and control study groups along with reduced skeletal muscle quality. This suggests that the circulating CAF level has the potential to be considered as a clinical marker to evaluate sarcopenia among T2D.

  • Evaluation of Prevalence of PCOS and Associated Depression, Nutrition, and
           Family History: A Questionnaire-based Assessment

    • Authors: Vishnubhotla; Deepa Switha; Tenali, Shouni Niveditha; Fernandez, Mini; Madireddi, Sujatha
      Abstract: imageContext: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition affecting women in the prime of reproductive age. The symptoms include infertility, amenorrhea, hirsutism, obesity, and androgenic alopecia. It is a socially stigmatizing condition and is often associated with depression, poor mental health, and quality of life.Settings and Design: We carried out a questionnaire based cross sectional study that assessed the prevalence of PCOS, collected information on the nutritional and life style related factors. A questionnaire was used to collect information with an intention to assess the prevalence of PCOS and to understand the contribution of life style/nutrition to the risk of PCOS. Student’s t test and Z proportion test were used to assess significance and a ‘p’ value of ≤ 0.05 was considered significant.Results: A total of 972 females completed the questionnaire (mean age:24.37±8.37 years). Majority were from Telangana (n=823;84.67%) and students (690;70.98%). The mean weight was 60.58±13.03 kg and height was 1.78±2.56 m. Sizeable proportion reported irregular menstrual cycle (n=289;29.73%), that they get easily depressed: 283/972 (29.11%), low self-esteem:242/972 (24.90%), insomnia:223/972 (22.94%). A higher proportion of females were diabetic (8/243;3.29%Vs.10/706;1.42%;p=0.02) and non-vegetarian (69/243;28.40%Vs.119/706;16.86%;p=0.0002). No difference in the consumption of processed/fast food, carbonated drinks and lifestyle were noted. A significantly (p=0.0001) higher proportion of females had a positive family history (32/243;13.17%Vs.26/706;3.68%).Conclusion: Higher prevalence of PCOS was noted in young female population. Identifying at-risk individuals and imparting life style, nutrition-based modifications would be beneficial. Furthermore, regular counseling sessions might help tackle depression leading to a better overall physical and mental health.

  • Obesity, Lipid Profile and Cytokines in Spondyloarthritis

    • Authors: Slouma; Maroua; Lahmer, Wided; Kharrat, Lobna; Ali, Khaoula Ben; Tezeghdenti, Aymen; Metoui, Leila; Dhahri, Rim; Ghazouani, Ezzedine; Gharsallah, Imen; Louzir, Bassem
      Abstract: imageContext: Chronic rheumatic diseases seem to be associated with a higher risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. The link between cytokines and lipid profile in spondyloarthritis is not well elucidated.Aims: We aimed to assess the relationship between cytokines and obesity, lipid profile and atherogenic indexes in spondyloarthritis.Methods and Material: We conducted a cross-sectional study including 45 patients with axial radiographic spondyloarthritis. For each patient, we measured the following pro-inflammatory cytokines: interleukin (IL-) 1, IL-8, IL-6, IL-17, IL-23 and tumor necrosis factor a (TNFa), and anti-inflammatory cytokines: IL-10. We also measured total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLc) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLc). We calculated the following ratios: TC/HDLc, TG/HDLc, LDLc/HDLc and Log[TG/HDLc].Statistical Analysis Used: SPSS.Results: The mean age was 46 ± 11.9 years. IL-8 levels were increased in obese patients (P = 0.003). IL-8 and IL-22 levels were significantly higher in patients with abdominal obesity (P = 0.024 and P = 0.042, respectively). IL-6 levels were lower in patients with hypercholesterolemia (P = 0.009). IL-1 levels correlated to TG (r = 0.413; P = 0.005). IL-1 and IL-6 were correlated to TG/HDLc (IL-1: r = 0.484, P = 0.001; IL-6; r = 0.700, P = 0.012) and Log[TG/HDLc] (IL-1: r = 0.354; P = 0.012; IL-6: r = 0.309, P = 0.041). IL-10 level was correlated to TC/HDLc (r = 0.333, P = 0.027) and LDLc/HDLc (r = 0.342, P = 0.023).Conclusions: IL-8 and IL-22 were higher in patients with abdominal obesity, highlighting the contribution of the adipocytes to the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines. The correlation between cytokines and atherogenic indexes suggests the role of these cytokines in the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases in spondyloarthritis.

  • Pharmacokinetic Similarity between Biosimilar Insulin Aspart Premix
           SAR341402 Mix 70/30 and Originator Insulin Aspart Mix 70/30 (NovoMix 30)
           in Indian Adults with Type 2 Diabetes: GEMELLI M Substudy

    • Authors: Mohan; Viswanathan; Schmider, Wolfgang; Singh, Kiran P.; Rotthaeuser, Baerbel; Mukherjee, Bhaswati; Aravind, S. R.
      Abstract: imageBackground: We compared the pharmacokinetic exposure, efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of biosimilar insulin aspart premix SAR341402 Mix 70/30 (SARAsp-Mix) with its originator NovoMix® 30 insulin aspart mix (NN-Mix) in adults with type 2 diabetes.Methods: This was a randomized, open-label, parallel-group, substudy of the phase 3 GEMELLI M trial performed in three Indian centres. Totally 13 Indian participants previously treated with premix insulin received a single subcutaneous 0.3 U/kg dose of each treatment and underwent pharmacokinetic sampling for 16 h after dosing. Participants were then treated for 26 weeks as per the main GEMELLI M trial with efficacy, safety and immunogenicity compared between groups.Results: The extent of exposure (area under the plasma concentration-time curve and maximum insulin aspart concentration) to SAR341402 insulin aspart in SARAsp-Mix and to insulin aspart in NN-Mix was similar following single doses of the allocated treatment. After 26 weeks, the mean ± SD [median] change in HbA1c from baseline was similar in both treatment groups (SARAsp-Mix −0.38% ± 1.54 [−1.00%]; NN-Mix −0.18% ± 1.97 [−0.80%]). Other efficacy endpoints, insulin dosages, anti-insulin aspart antibody response, hypoglycemia and adverse events were similar between groups.Conclusions: Our results support the findings from previous studies, that SARAsp-Mix has a similar pharmacokinetic profile to NN-Mix and provides effective glycemic control with similar safety and immunogenicity profile in Indian adults with type 2 diabetes.

  • Age and Disease Duration Independent Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy in
           Patients with Diabetic Foot Complications: Case-Control Study

    • Authors: Wadhera; Sarthak; Rastogi, Ashu; Dutta, Pinaki; Gupta, Ankur; Bhadada, Sanjay K.
      Abstract: imageIntroduction: Cardiac autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in people with diabetes is associated with high mortality. We aimed to study age and disease duration, independent prevalence of CAN in people with diabetic foot complications.Methods: 530 patients with diabetes were screened to undergo CAN assessment (automated CANS-analyser). CAN was defined as “early”, “definite,” or “severe” according to the Toronto consensus. History pertaining to autonomic symptoms, prior cardiovascular events (CVE), and assessment for peripheral neuropathy was done. Participants were grouped into those with diabetic foot complication (group A, n = 82) [Charcot foot (n = 42), diabetic foot ulcer (n = 40)]; with DPN without foot complications (group B, n = 82); and without DPN or foot complications (group C, n = 82).Results: Symptoms of autonomic dysfunction were prominent in people with foot complications than the other groups. Resting heart rate was significantly greater in those with foot complications [99.89 ± 26.71 (group A) vs. 86.99 ± 22.24 (group B) vs. 88.32 ± 17.08 (group C); P = 0.001]. The prevalence of CAN was 75.6% in group A (51.2% early, 12.2% definite, 12.2% severe), 57.2% in group B (45.1% early, 12.2% severe) and 58.5% in group C (43.9% early, 1.2% definite, 13.4% severe) (P = 0.002). Patients with foot complications were more likely to have CAN (75.6% vs. 57.9%, P < 0.001). Charcot foot had higher prevalence of CAN (78.6%) as compared with those with DFU (72.5%) or without DFU or DPN (57.9%), P < 0.001.Conclusion: CAN is present in more than two-third of patients with diabetes and foot complications with highest prevalence in Charcot neuroarthropathy.

  • High Prevalence of Additional Cardiovascular Risk Factors in
           Eastern-Indian Young Adults with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    • Authors: Barure; Ramdas; Shanthaiah, Dhananjaya Melkunte; Atluri, Sridevi; Channabasappa, Shivaprasad; Kolla, Gautam; Reddy, S. L. Sagar; Sarathi, Vijaya
      Abstract: imageBackground and Aims: The American Diabetes Association recommends statin therapy for young type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) adults only if one additional cardiovascular (CV) risk factor coexists. The data regarding CV risk factors in young Indian T2DM adults is limited. Hence, we assessed the prevalence of CV risk factors in young adults with T2DM from eastern India.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, diabetic medical health check records of eastern-Indian T2DM patients performed between March 2018 and March 2019 were retrospectively reviewed and the relevant data of T2DM patients (n = 3564) including CV risk factors [serum LDL-cholesterol of ≥100 mg/dL, hypertension (>140/90 mmHg), smoking, chronic kidney disease (eGFR of

  • The Effect of Diabetes Mellitus on Outcomes of Patients Admitted with
           COVID-19: A Single – Center Experience from a Tertiary Hospital in India

    • Authors: Mittal; Naveen; Dhooria, Harmeet Pal S.; Arora, Saurabh; Kumar, Vipin; Bansal, Ekta; Singh, Parminder; Kalra, Sanjay; Goyal, Saloni; Mittal, Namit; Naved, Khizar; Mohan, Bishav
      Abstract: imageBackground and Objectives: Diabetes mellitus is associated with poor clinical outcomes in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This study aimed to explore the clinical characteristics of patients with type 2 diabetes with COVID-19, and to determine the impact of type 2 diabetes on clinical outcome of patients with COVID-19.Material and Methods: This single-center, retrospective, observational study enrolled patients admitted from March 2020 to June 2021 with COVID-19. The clinical and biochemical characteristics of patients with known type 2 diabetes, newly diagnosed diabetes, type 2 diabetes with comorbidities and those who succumbed to illness were analyzed.Results: Of 4,559 patients with COVID-19, 2,090 (45.8%) had type 2 diabetes. Patients with COVID-19 with diabetes were older, more likely to receive mechanical ventilation, had higher odds of mortality from COVID-19 as compared with patients without diabetes. In addition, patients with diabetes had significantly higher levels of serum creatinine, C-reactive protein, ferritin, lactate dehydrogenase, and D-dimer. Compared with previously diagnosed patients with diabetes, newly diagnosed patients had higher mortality (33% vs. 27%, P = 0.049). Among patients with COVID-19 and diabetes, nonsurvivors had significantly higher levels of inflammatory markers and had severe impairment of cardiac, renal, and coagulation parameters as opposed to survivors.Conclusion: Patients with COVID-19 with diabetes were more likely to have severe disease and had higher mortality. Presence of chronic kidney disease and coronary artery disease in patients with diabetes with COVID-19 was associated with adverse outcome. Patients with newly diagnosed diabetes had higher odds of severe disease at presentation and had higher mortality.

      Abstract: imageAim: The prevalence of childhood and adolescent obesity is increasing worldwide as well as in India. Prader–-Willi syndrome (PWS) is one of the most common causes of syndromic obesity with varied clinical manifestations across different lifespan. Herewith, we describe clinical and molecular characteristics of eight PWS who were diagnosed in an obesity clinic of tertiary care hospital.Materials and Methods: Clinically suspected cases of PWS were screened between January 2014 and January 2022. Detailed history and clinical examination were done to look for typical features of PWS like characteristic facial appearance, short stature, obesity, hyperphagia, delayed puberty or hypogonadism, diabetes mellitus, developmental delay, cognitive dysfunction, learning disabilities or abnormal behavior. All were evaluated, with 75 g oral glucose tolerance tests (GTT), HbA1c, Free T4, TSH, LH, FSH, testosterone, and growth hormone level. Intelligent quotient (IQ) of each patient was assessed by a psychiatrist using Binet–Kamat test. Molecular confirmation of clinically suspected PWS was done by either Methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction (MS-PCR) or Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (FISH) methods.Results: Based on clinical and molecular characteristics, eight were diagnosed as PWS. Except one, all were male with characteristic facies, mean age of study cohort was 12 years and mean BMI of 44.58. Obesity, short stature, hyperphagia, hypotonia, and mild to moderate mental retardation were noted in entire (100%) PWS study population. All male PWS patients had cryptorchidism, which was bilateral in six patients and unilateral (right undescended testes) in one. Apart from obesity, short stature, other endocrine associations noted were diabetes mellitus in 50% and subclinical hypothyroidism in 37% of PWS. Molecular characteristics of PWS were confirmed by Methylation-specific PCR in seven and by FISH method in one.Conclusion: Prader–Willi syndrome should be kept in mind in case of childhood or adolescent obesity with short stature, hypotonia, cryptorchidism, and developmental delay or cognitive dysfunction. Judicious use of molecular diagnostic testing should be made in all clinically suspected cases. Early diagnosis and appropriate management of this complex disorder by a multidisciplinary team will improve the quality of life and treatment outcome.
