  • Management of type 1 type 2 diabetes mellitus in conditions of armed

    • Authors: M.R. Mikityuk, Yu.I. Karachentsev
      Pages: 203 - 207
      Abstract: Humanitarian crises caused by armed conflict are constantly growing and present a serious global problem for health systems. The war in Ukraine produced about 4.8 million Ukrainians seeking temporary protection abroad, and about 10 million received the status of an internally displaced person. The situation in Ukraine has been described as potentially the largest migration crisis in Europe in the last century. As humanitarian crises become widespread and prolonged, chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus (DM) are becoming increasingly important. Food security, li­mited access to medical facilities and medicines, and economic difficulties are just some of the many difficulties faced by patients with DM in armed conflict. The experience of the functioning of the health care system in conditions of armed conflict, on the example of other countries, shows that in the short term, the priority should be to ensure the continuity of insulin therapy and access to basic oral sugar-lowering agents and educational programs for patients on self-control of the disease with an emphasis on recognizing the symptoms of hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, and dehydration; in the long term — ensuring access to high-quality medical care and medicines, training of local and international providers of medical services for the diagnosis and treatment of DM and its acute complications and the development of clinical guidance on the management of patients in these conditions. Humanitarian crises in the world have become more protracted, and therefore health workers must go beyond direct basic primary care and address the long-term health consequences of those affected. Further research is needed to be aimed at improving the quality of medical care for patients with DM in the context of the humanitarian crisis caused by the armed conflict, there is a need to develop simplified, cost-effective models of monitoring the condition of patients, the quality of medical care and the availability of medicines to patients in this category.

  • The role of vitamin D for the management of depression in patients with
           autoimmune thyroiditis and hypothyroidism in the West-Ukrainian population

    • Authors: Iryna Kamyshna
      Pages: 208 - 212
      Abstract: Background. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is known to be an essential endocrine disease that affects the population and may lead to hypothyroidism. This disease is one of the most commonly spread autoimmune di­seases. Hypothyroid patients frequently experience features of depression, which is prevalent among other symptoms in hypothyroidism. Data from recent research has proved that vitamin D deficiency may cause depression manifestations in the population. The purpose of the work is to study the effect of cholecalciferol in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis and hypothyroidism in the West-Ukrainian population on the level of depression in these patients. Materials and methods. The study included the 56 patients with hypothyroidism (H) caused by autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT). We identified the severity of depression levels using the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HDRS), which is reliable for depression assessment. Examinations were performed at the beginning and end of the 12-week treatment. Results. In patients of group 1 who received cholecalciferol and L-thyroxine, the level of depression on the Hamilton scale decreased by 40 %, while in patients who received only L-thyroxine, the level of depression decreased by 25 %. In addition, there was a significant difference between patients in groups 1 and 2 after treatment (p = 0.003). That is, treatment with additional cholecalciferol on the background of L-thyroxine was more effective than treatment with L-thyroxine alone. Analyzing the effect of treatment in patients with Group 1 with the additional appointment of cholecalciferol on the background of L-thyroxine in 21.4 % of patients disappeared depression. In addition, there was a decrease in depression in other patients in this group. Thus, in the remaining patients the severity of depressive manifestations decreased from moderate severity to mild depressive disorder. At the same time, after treatment only L-thyroxine depressive disorder of moderate severity decreased from 78.6 to 35.7 % to mild depressive disorder, but complete disappearance of depression in this group of patients after treatment was not observed. Conclusions. Vitamin D supplementation should be administered in patients suffering from autoimmune thyroiditis and hypothyroidism which may correct depression disorders in these patients.

  • Morphological features of thyroid benign focal neoplasms in Graves’

    • Authors: Yu.V. Buldygina, A.V. Zelinskaya, L.Yu. Zurnadzhy, Yu.M. Tarashchenko, S.L. Shlyakhtych, M.D. Tronko
      Pages: 213 - 218
      Abstract: Background. The morphology of the thyroid in Graves’ disease (GD) can be quite diverse: in most cases there is a diffuse enlargement of the thyroid gland (diffuse goiter), in some cases it is not increased, and in some patients there are focal neoplasms (single and multiple), including thyroid cancer. According to some studies, in patients with Graves’ disease, focal formations are observed in 10–31% of cases, and in half of the patients, they appear against the background of treatment with thionamides. The purpose of this paper was a retrospective study of the morphological features of benign thyroid neoplasms due to GD based on the results of cytological and pathomorphological studies. Materials and methods. The study was performed at the clinic of the State Institution “V.P. Komisarenko Institute of Endocrinology and Metabolism of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine”. All patients with GD who were operated in the Department of Endocrine Surgery from 2008 to 2019 (1854 patients) were first selected, and then those who had benign focal formations according to the pathohistological examination were selected among them. Results. The frequency of benign thyroid neoplasms in GD is 22.06 % in women aged 26 to 55 years. Cytological studies of thyroid neoplasm punctures in GD made it possible to clearly establish their benign nature (BSRTC-2) in 94.3 % of cases. In 5.7 % of cases, cytological categories BSRTC-3 and BSRTC-4 were established. Positive immunocytochemical reactions to thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin, and the absence of CK17 allow avoiding cytological overdiagnosis, characteristic of benign neoplasms of the thyroid gland in GD. Conclusions. Among pathohistologically confirmed benign neoplasms of the thyroid gland in GD, in 63.82 % of cases a histological diagnosis was adenomatous or colloid goiter, in 34.47 % — signs of nodular hyperplasia, in 1.71 % — the presence of thyroiditis.

  • Insulin resistance: metabolic and somatic changes in children

    • Authors: N.M. Gromnatska, O.Y. Sklyarova, O.O. Kulya
      Pages: 219 - 225
      Abstract: Background. Insulin resistance is the major sign of etiology and pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome and can precede its development for many years. Early identifying the beginning of insulin resistance in children is important to prevent diabetes mellitus in adult life. The purpose was to identify metabolic and somatic changes in children with insulin resistance. Material and methods. Out of 182 children of the general sample, who was estimated fasting plasma insulin and glucose, HOMA-IR, and glucose/insulin ratio, 2 groups were formed: group 1 — children with IR — 56 (30.8 %) and group 2 — 126 (69.2 %) children with normal insulin sensitivity. In children anthropometric data, lipid metabolism (total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL-C, LDL-C, VLDL-C), blood pressure, leptin were determined. Results. From examined subjects 56 children were generally obese (BMI > 95th percentile), 71 children were abdominally obese (WC > 90th percentile), 55 children were with normal body mass (BMI < 90th percentile). Insulin resistance was identified in 21 (37.5 %) children with general obesity more rarely, than in 38 (39.4 %) children with abdominal obesity (p = .049) and in 7 (12.7 %) children with normal BMI (p = .003). In insulin-resistant children BMI, waist and hip circumference was larger than in children with normal insulin sensitivity. The lipid profile in children with different insulin sensitivity did not differ, but in insulin-resistant children an association of basal glucose with TG/HDL-C ratio (r = .53; p = .001), blood insulin with TG (r = .34; p = .018), and TG/HDL-C ratio (r = .54; p = .001) was estimated. The HOMA-IR significantly correlated with VLD-C (r = .40; p = .005), TG (r = .49; p = .001), TG/HDL-C ratio (r = .43; p = .002). The glucose/insulin ratio was in significant association with the TG/non-HDL-C ratio. The incidence of hypetension (> 95th percentile) diagnosis in insulin-resistant children was by 33.8 % higher (p = .001). Blood leptin concentration was 1.8 falled higher in insulin-resistant children and significantly correlates with waist circumference, fasting insulin, HOMA-IR, and diastolic blood pressure. Conclusions. Insulin resistance is related to cardiometabolic risks, such as general and abdominal obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, hyperleptinemia, and leptin resistance, and is a screening biomarker for children and adolescents with an increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases.

  • Iodine deficiency and prevalence of nodular goitre in Ukraine

    • Authors: A.O. Tovkai
      Pages: 226 - 230
      Abstract: More than one tenth of the world population is to some degree affected by goitre and most of these harbour nodules. The large differences in thyroid disease prevalence between populations may be caused by genetic and environmental factors. Among the latter, iodine deficiency seems by far to be the most important risk factor. Thus, nodular goitre is a condition predominantly seen in iodine deficient areas of the world. Large thyroid volumes and high frequencies of goitres have been reported in countries affected by iodine deficiency. In the present review, we evaluated prevalences of thyroid nodules in iodine-deficient countries. In 2016 in Ukraine the prevalence of nodular goiter was 707.8 per 100 thousand population, then after 5 years the figure slowly increased to 891.5 cases, respectively (+25.9 %). The existing high indices of newly diagnosed patients with nodular goitre in the country in 2016 were 71.9, and at the end of 2020 — 90.2 initially established cases per 100 thousand population, with a positive increase of +25.5 %. In the Whickham survey, 20 % of women and 5 % of men who had goitres in the initial survey showed no evidence of goitre in a follow-up survey. An average growth rate in the multinodular goitre of 5–20 % was reported in iodine-sufficient areas. On the basis of the results of the Framingham survey, the estimated lifetime risk for developing a nodule is 5–10 %. Thyroid nodule size can increase, decrease, or remain stable, and thyroid nodules may eventually also disappear over time. Solid nodules more frequently increase, whereas cystic nodules can shrink or disappear. If the goitre has been present for some time, autonomous function of the nodules and eventually hyperthyroidism develop. The rate of progression from euthyroidism to subclinical and overt hyperthyroidism is about 10 %.

  • Product of metabolic activity of intestinal microbium
           trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO) — biomarker of progression of
           atherosclerosis-copy in the heart of the heart

    • Authors: К.О. Shyshkan-Shyshova, O.V. Zinych
      Pages: 231 - 238
      Abstract: The literature data on the importance of intestinal microbiota as an endocrine organ — producer of biologically active metabolites, which perform key functions to maintain metabolic homeostasis of the whole organism, in particular the condition of the cardiovascular system, are analyzed. Clinical and experimental studies using a metabolomical approach have shown that the development of atherosclerotic CVD is often associated with ele­vated levels of one of the microbial metabolites, trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO). TMAO may be a sensitive prognostic biomar­ker of complications of type 2 diabetes, including atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. The precursor of TMAO is trimethy­lamine (TMA), formed by intestinal bacteria from food phosphatidylcholine and L-carnitine. In the liver, TMA is converted to TMAO under the influence of hepatic flavin monooxygenase 3. The mecha­nisms of the proatherogenic effect of elevated levels of TMAO include effects on bile acid and cholesterol metabolism, platelet hyperactivation, stimulation of inflammatory processes and oxidative stress, induction of endothelial disfunction and endoplasmic reticulum stress. It has been established that TMAO, in conditions of chronic elevation, can contribute to cardiome­tabolic diseases. Elevated le­vels of TMAO in dysmetabolic conditions (obesity, type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, or coronary heart disease) have been suggested to be largely associated with the gut microbiota profile. Therefore, regulating the ratio of intestinal microorganisms or their ability to form a precursor of TMAO — TMA, may be a way to develop new tools for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis and prevent the progression of cardiovascular complications, including in patients with type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that inhibiting various stages of TMAO production can reduce TMAO levels and help treat atherosclerosis and diabetes.

      Abstract: Hypoglycemic syndrome is often noted in clinical practice in the treatment of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM), especially with insulin. This syndrome is manifested by symptoms caused by neuroglycopenia (insufficient supply of glucose to the brain, which utilizes 20 % of all glucose). Hypoglycemia occurs quite often, in about 40 % of people with type 1 DM. The clini­cal syndrome of postprandial (reactive) hypoglycemia of various etio­logies is considered, which is manifested by a hypoglycemic condition in the next hours after eating, especially easily diges­tible carbohydrates. In most cases, there is a violation of the hypothalamic regulation of carbohydrate metabolism, and the clinical picture is dominated by symptoms of activation of the sympathoadrenal system. Such hypoglycemia is usually transient, as glucose levels return to normal rapidly due to the release of counterinsular hormones. The importance of the latter in the regulation of insulin secretion is evidenced by the fact that after oral glucose loa­ding, a higher level of insulin secretion is determined than in the case of intravenous administration of an equivalent dose. Elderly patients with hypoglycemia are more likely to deve­lop neurolo­gical disorders than adrenergic disorders (palpitations, tremors, hunger). These symptoms may be mistaken for signs of cerebrovascular ischemia, as a result, hypoglycemia is not adequately detected and treated. In addition to the acute adverse effects of hypoglycaemia, a hypoglycaemic episode may have long-term consequences. Frequent hypoglycemic conditions have a significant psychological impact and are also a risk factor for dementia. The paper presents the data, based on scientific sources and own observations, on etiopathogenesis of hypoglycemia, as well as their most frequent clinical varieties, in particular, in the syndrome of unrecognization of hypoglycemia, postprandial hypoglycemia, in chronic insulin overdose in patients with diabetes mellitus in old age and insulinism.
