  • Characteristics of Children with Newly Diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
           in Brunei Darussalam

    • Authors: Chun Yen Wee, Alice Moi Ling Yong, Chee Fui Chong, Ing Shian Soon
      Pages: 8 - 12
      Abstract: Objective. This study aims to characterize the presentation, biochemical status of children with T1DM at diagnosis, the type of subcutaneous insulin regimens initiated, and to determine the incidence of T1DM in Bruneian children aged 18 years and younger. Methodology. A retrospective electronic and paper medical chart review was performed on patients aged 18 years and younger diagnosed with T1DM from 2013 to 2018 in Brunei Darussalam. Results. A total of 31 children with a mean age of 10.2 ± 3.6 years old were diagnosed with T1DM, of which 66.7% presented with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a majority in severe DKA with an intercurrent illness (p=0.021). The mean HbA1c was 13.6 ± 2.7% with a mean serum glucose of 37.0±14.9 mmol/L at diagnosis. In the majority of the children (67.7%), multiple daily injections of subcutaneous insulin were initiated. The incidence of T1DM in children aged 18 years and younger was 4.9 per 100,000 for the year 2018. Conclusions. The majority of the patients in this study presented with severe DKA with an intercurrent illness. This highlights the importance of childhood T1DM awareness among the public and healthcare providers. The incidence of childhood T1DM in Brunei Darussalam is similar to other countries in the Asian region, being relatively low, compared to the rest of the world.

    • Authors: Lee Ching Wong, Arini Nuran Idris, Norazlin Kamal Nor , Poi Giok Lim
      Pages: 13 - 19
      Abstract: Introduction. Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is an autoimmune disorder that requires a lifelong treatment regimen which may affect psychosocial development. Objective. To identify behavioural and emotional problems in children and adolescents with T1DM. Methodology. A cross-sectional study using the Child Behaviour Check List (CBCL) was conducted among all T1DM patients receiving treatment at the Paediatric Endocrine Unit, Hospital Tunku Azizah Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Results. Forty T1DM patients were included. The mean age of the participants was 12.4 years (SD=2.69), with 52.5% males, and 75% Malay. The average duration of illness was 4.8 years, 9 were pre-pubertal, while mean HbA1c was 9.4%. Thirty-five percent of the respondents had parent-reported internalizing problems and 17.5% had parent-reported
      externalizing problems. Those >12 years old had more internalizing problems (p=0.004) compared to those ≤12 years old. The differences were in the anxious/depressed syndrome subscale (p=0.001) and withdrawn/depressed syndrome subscale (p=0.015). There were no statistically significant differences in the 3 main global scores by gender, glycaemic control, duration of illness and pubertal status by univariate analysis. Conclusion. T1DM patients >12 years old were at higher risk of developing psychosocial difficulties. This highlighted the benefit of screening of behavioural and emotional issues in children and adolescents with T1DM.

  • A Cross-sectional Study to Assess Beta-Cell Function in Individuals with
           Recently Diagnosed Young-Onset Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Its’
           Complications

    • Authors: Shamharini Nagaratnam, Subashini Rajoo, Mohamed Badrulnizam Long Bidin, Nur Shafini Che Rahim, Sangeetha Tharmathurai, Masita Arip, Yee Ming Ching, Siew Hui Foo
      Pages: 20 - 27
      Abstract: Objective. The primary objective was to assess beta-cell function of recently-diagnosed young-onset type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) individuals using basal and stimulated C-peptide levels. The secondary objective was to examine the association between C-peptide with metabolic factors and diabetes complications. Methodology. A cross-sectional study was conducted for young-onset T2DM individuals aged 18-35 years with a disease duration of not more than 5 years. Plasma C-peptide was measured before and after intravenous glucagon injection. Demographic data, medical history and complications were obtained from medical records and clinical assessment. Continuous data were expressed as median and interquartile range (IQR). Categorical variables were described as frequency or percentage. Multivariable linear regression analysis was used to determine factors associated with C-peptide levels. Results. 113 participants with young-onset T2DM with a median (IQR) age of 29.0 (9.5) years and 24 (36) months were included in this study. The median (IQR) basal and stimulated C-peptide was 619 (655) pmol/L and 1231 (1024) pmol/L. Adequate beta-cell function was present in 78-86% of the participants based on the basal and stimulated C-peptide levels. We found hypertension, obesity and diabetic kidney disease (DKD) to be independently associated with higher C–peptide levels. In contrast, females, smokers, those on insulin therapy and with longer duration of disease had lower C–peptide levels. Conclusion. Most recently diagnosed young-onset T2DM have adequate beta-cell function. Elevated C-peptide levels associated with obesity, hypertension and diabetic kidney disease suggest insulin resistance as the key driving factor for complications.

  • Severity and Factors Associated with Depressive Symptoms Among Type 2
           Diabetic Patients in Vietnam

    • Authors: Kien Nguyen, Hoa Nguyen Phuong, Kris Van den Broeck, Johan Wens
      Pages: 28 - 34
      Abstract: Background. Diabetes and psychiatric disorders often co-occur. The prevalence of depression in a person with diabetes is two times higher than that of the general population. During the last decade, the prevalence of diabetes in Vietnam has nearly doubled. However, there is little data regarding depressive symptoms among people with diabetes. Therefore, this study aims to explore the level of depressive symptoms and its associated factors among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Hanoi, Vietnam. Methodology. A cross-sectional study was conducted among 519 patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the Agricultural General Hospital, one of the largest primary care hospitals for diabetes in Hanoi, Vietnam. Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) was used to assess the severity of depressive symptoms. Multivariate Tobit and logistic regression models were applied to examine factors associated with the severity of depressive symptoms and medication adherence Results. Approximately 45.2% of participants were identified as having depressive symptoms at different levels. The proportion of patients with mild, moderate, moderately severe, and severe depressive symptoms is 36.0%, 7.6%, 1.4%, and 0.2% respectively. Regarding the treatment process, patients being treated for their diabetes for a longer time were more likely to have depressive symptoms. DDepression was positively linked to currently drinking alcohol (Coef = 1.04;
      95% CI = 0.30-1.78), having comorbidities (Coef = 1.08; 95% CI = 0.15; 2.01) and having irregular physical activities (Coef = -1.28; 95% CI = -2.18; -0.38). Patients with severe depressive symptoms (higher PHQ-9 score) were more likely to be non-adherent to their medications in the last month (AOR = 1.30; 95% CI = 1.17; 1.46). Conclusion. Our study shows that a high percentage of patients with diabetes have depressive symptoms. There is a strong association between having depressive symptoms and non-adherence to medications in the last month. To reduce the risk of developing depressive symptoms, depression should be screened at the initial treatment process and patients should be advised to avoid alcohol and to engage in physical activities regularly.

  • Association of Acute Hyperglycemia and Diabetes Mellitus with Amount of
           Platelets Derived Microparticles During Acute Myocardial Infarction

    • Authors: Hana Anindya Indana, Ira Puspitawati, Dyah Samti Mayasari, Anggoro Budi Hartopo
      Pages: 35 - 40
      Abstract: Objectives. This research aims to investigate whether there is an association between acute hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus and the amount of circulating platelet-derived microparticles (PDMPs) during acute myocardial infarction (AMI) initial episode. Methodology. This was a cross-sectional study. Subjects were AMI patients underwent hospitalization. Demography and clinical data were obtained from hospital records. Diabetes mellitus was defined from history of disease, antidiabetic use and/or level of HbA1C ≥6.5%. Levels of HbA1c, admission random and fasting blood glucose levels were measured in hospital laboratory. The PDMPs was measured by flow-cytometry method, by tagging with CD-41 FITC and CD-62 PE markers and threshold size of <1 µm, from venous blood. The circulating PDMPs amount was compared according to glucometabolic state, namely acute hyperglycemia (admission random glucose ≥200 mg/dL and fasting glucose ≥140 mg/dL) and diabetes mellitus. The comparative analysis between group was conducted with Student T tests or Mann-Whitney tests, where applicable. Results. A total of 108 subjects were included and their data analyzed. Circulating PDMPs amount was significantly lower in subjects with admission random glucose ≥200 mg/dL as compared to those with below level (median (interquartile range (IQR)): 2,710.0 (718.0-8,167.0) count/mL vs. 4,452.0 (2,128.5-14,499.8) count/mL, p=0.05) and in subjects with fasting glucose ≥140 mg/dL as compared to those with below level (median (IQR): 2,382.0 (779.0-6,619.0) count/mL vs. 5,972.0 (2,345.7-14,781.3) count/mL, p=0.006). Circulating PDMPs amount was also significantly lower in diabetes mellitus as compared to non diabetic (median (IQR): 2,655.0 (840.0-5,821.0) count/mL vs. 4,562.0 (2,128.5-15,055.8) count/mL; p=0.007). Conclusion. Acute hyperglycemia and diabetes mellitus significantly associated with lower amount of circulating PDMPs during the initial episode of AMI.

  • A Survey on Factors Affecting Knowledge and Satisfaction with Care Among
           Persons with Diabetes Mellitus in an Urban Health Centre and its Outreach
           Clinics in South India

    • Authors: Lerisha Lovelina, Pavan Mukherjee, Vijaya Kumar, Sunil Abraham, Sajitha Rahman, Ruby Angeline Pricilla
      Pages: 41 - 49
      Abstract: Objective. To determine the level of knowledge and factors affecting knowledge and satisfaction with diabetes care among persons with diabetes at urban health centre (UHC) and community health worker (CHW)-led outreach clinics (ORC) in South India. Methodology. A cross-sectional study was carried out using a structured questionnaire. One hundred patients at the UHC and 200 patients at the ORC were included. Results. Patients with DM of more than eight years, with co-morbidities and maintained on insulin had good knowledge at the UHC. At the ORC, participants who received education beyond the primary level and belonging to non - Hindu religion had higher knowledge. Patients at the ORC experienced better satisfaction in terms of waiting time for appointments,
      consultation, registration system and counselling. At the UHC, those who received primary education or those with lower educational attainment had better satisfaction. Overall, knowledge (p=0.03) and satisfaction (p=0.00001) of diabetes care was better at the ORC than at the UHC. Conclusions. Our study found better knowledge and satisfaction with diabetes care at the ORC than at the UHC. Whether or not the difference can be attributed to CHW-based clinics in the community needs to be further elucidated.

  • The Association between Betel Quid Chewing and Metabolic Syndrome among
           Urban Adults in Mandalay District of Myanmar

    • Authors: Aye Aye Aung, Sai Ni Soe Zin, Aung Ko Ko, Aung Cho Thet
      Pages: 50 - 56
      Abstract: Background. As the prevalence of metabolic syndrome, obesity and diabetes increase worldwide, the need to identify modifiable lifestyle risk factors also increases, especially those that may be relatively unique to a specific population. To explore a possible association between betel quid chewing and metabolic syndrome, a community-based cross-sectional study was conducted. Methodology. Three hundred ninety-one (391) adults were interviewed and the following parameters were measured: triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol, glucose, waist circumference, body mass index and blood pressure. Multiple logistic regression was used to determine the association between betel quid chewing and metabolic syndrome while controlling for confounders. Results. The prevalence of metabolic syndrome was similar in chewers and non-chewers, 50% and 49%, respectively. After controlling for other factors, development of metabolic syndrome was positively associated with number of betel quid chewed per day, age greater than 40 years , and a positive family history of hypertension and diabetes. Regarding the duration of betel chewing, when analyzed by sex, the risk was doubled in men compared to non-chewers (OR 2.15; 95% CI = 1.21, 3.84]). As a result, a man chewing more than 10 pieces (OR 2.49; 95% CI = 1.36, 4.57]) of betel quids per day for more than 10 years had a two-fold increased chance of developing the metabolic syndrome. Conclusions. Frequency and duration of betel quid chewing may represent a behavioral lifestyle target for approaches to reduce the incidence of metabolic syndrome.

  • Predictors of Poor Glycemic Control and Increased Glucose Variability
           Among Admitted Moderate to Critical COVID-19 Patients with Type 2 Diabetes
           Mellitus

    • Authors: John Paul Martin Bagos, Erick Mendoza, Bien Matawaran
      Pages: 57 - 64
      Abstract: Objectives. COVID-19 exacerbates the long-standing, low-grade chronic inflammation observed in diabetes leading to heightened insulin resistance and hyperglycemia. Mortality increases with hyperglycemia and poor glycemic variability, hence, this study aims to identify the predictors associated with poor glycemic control and increased glucose variability among patients with COVID-19 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). Methodology. A retrospective chart review of 109 patients with moderate to severe COVID-19 and T2DM admitted from March 2020 to June 2021 was done. Logistic regression was done to determine predictors for hyperglycemia and poor variability. Results. Of the 109 patients, 78% had hyperglycemia and poor variability and 22% had no poor outcomes. Chronic kidney disease (eOR 2.83, CI [1.07-7.46], p=0.035) was associated with increased glycemic variability. In contrast, increasing eGFR level (eOR 0.97, CI [0.96-0.99], p=0.004) was associated with less likelihood of increased variability. Hs-CRP (eOR 1.01, CI [1.00-1.01], p=0.011), HbA1c (eOR 1.86, CI [1.23-2.82], p=0.003), severe COVID-19 (eOR 8.91, CI [1.77-44.94], p=0.008) and critical COVID-19 (eOR 4.42, CI [1.65-11.75], p=0.003) were associated with hyperglycemia. Steroid use (eOR 71.17, CI [8.53-593.54], p<0.001) showed the strongest association with hyperglycemia. Conclusion. Potential clinical, laboratory and inflammatory profiles were identified as predictors for poor glycemic control and variability outcomes. HbA1c, hs-CRP, and COVID-19 severity are predictors of hyperglycemia. Likewise, chronic kidney disease is a predictor of increased glycemic variability.

This study determined the baseline hormonal levels of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and their associated factors in noncritically ill hospitalized patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Methodology. This cross-sectional observational study was carried out in 91 noncritical RT-PCR-confirmed COVID-19 patients (18-65 years) recruited consecutively from the COVID unit, of two tertiary care hospitals over a period of six months. After screening for exclusion criteria relevant history and physical examinations were done, and blood was drawn between 07:00 am to 09:00 am in a fasting state to measure serum cortisol and plasma adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay. Result. Of 91 patients, 54, 26, and 11 had mild, moderate, and severe disease respectively. Median values of serum cortisol (p=0.057) and plasma ACTH (p=0.910) were statistically similar among the severity groups. Considering cortisol cut-off of 276 nmol/L (<10 μg/dL), the highest percent of adrenal insufficiency was present in severe (27.3%), followed by mild (25.9%) and least in moderate (3.8%) COVID-19 cases. Using the cortisol/ACTH ratio >15, only 6.6% had enough reserve. Conclusions. The adrenocortical response was compromised in a significant percentage of noncritically ill hospitalized patients with COVID-19, which is unrelated to infection severity, with greater percentages present in severely infected cases.

      Abstract: Objective. This study seeks to determine the association between vitamin D and testosterone in healthy, adult Filipino males. Methodology. This cross-sectional study included 110 healthy, non-obese, male volunteers aged 21–40. History and physical exam were taken, and blood was drawn for vitamin D, total testosterone (TT), sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), albumin, insulin, fasting plasma glucose, and total cholesterol. Free testosterone (FT) was calculated. Vitamin D data were classified by status and TT, FT, and SHBG levels were compared using the Kruskal–Wallis’s test. The associations of vitamin D levels with TT, FT, and SHBG were explored using multiple regression analysis. Results. Vitamin D levels were sufficient in 3 (2.7%), insufficient in 17 (15.45%), and deficient in 90 (81.8%) of the sample. There were no significant differences in the mean TT (p=0.7981), FT (p=0.8768), nor SHBG (p=0.1838) across vitamin D status. Vitamin D was not associated with TT nor FT before or after adjustment for age and age plus body mass index (BMI). Vitamin D was associated with SHBG before and after the aforementioned adjustments, but this became insignificant on sensitivity analysis. Conclusion. There is no association between vitamin D and TT, FT nor SHBG in our cohort with deficient Vit D levels.

  • Prevalence and Associated Factors for Thyroid Dysfunction Among Patients
           On Targeted Therapy for Cancers

    • Authors: Korawan Chawalitmongkol, Kunlatida Maneenil, Pravinwan Thungthong, Chaicharn Deerochanawong
      Pages: 77 - 85
      Abstract: Objective. This study aimed to explore the prevalence and associated factors of thyroid dysfunction among cancer patients treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). Methodology. A cross-sectional study was done in patients who received TKIs at Rajavithi Hospital in 2019. For patients treated with ICI, a retrospective chart review for patients seen in 2018 to 2019 was conducted. If there were abnormal thyroid function tests (TFT), thyroid autoantibodies were tested. Results. There were 144 patients on TKIs with a mean age of 56.0 years. Thyroid dysfunction was found in 14.6% of patients and most had subclinical hypothyroidism (n=16, 11.1%). Imatinib (n=11, 10.8%) and sunitinib (n=4, 100%) were the 2 most common TKIs given to patients with thyroid dysfunction. Thyroid dysfunction was associated with male sex, chronic kidney disease and hepatitis B virus infection but not with previous thyroid disease and presence of thyroid autoantibodies. There were 18 patients who received ICIs. The mean age was 63.3 years. Twelve patients (66.7%) used programmed cell
      death protein-1 antibody (anti-PD1), mainly nivolumab. Thyroid dysfunction was found in 50%, which occurred at a median duration of 46 days. Most patients had overt hypothyroidism and 55.6% needed levothyroxine replacement. Conclusion. Thyroid dysfunctions from TKIs were mostly asymptomatic and mild in severity. Some types of TKIs might be associated with thyroid dysfunction. On the other hand, thyroid dysfunction from ICIs usually occurs within 6 months and requires levothyroxine replacement.

  • Malignancy in Thyroid Nodules with Bethesda III Category on Repeat Fine
           Needle Aspiration Biopsy

    • Authors: Jennifer Lourdes Ng, Luz Margaret Escueta, Oliver Allan Dampil
      Pages: 86 - 93
      Abstract: Objectives. This study aimed to evaluate the risk of malignancy for nodules repeatedly classified as Bethesda category III on fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Methodology. A chart review on a series of 59 patients seen with thyroid nodules who underwent both initial and repeat
      FNAB at the Diabetes, Thyroid and Endocrine Center of St. Luke’s Medical Center, Quezon City was conducted. The Thyroid Registry was utilized to collect each patient’s demographic and clinical characteristics, ultrasonographic features of thyroid nodules along with the cytopathologic and histopathologic results. The subclassification of atypia of undetermined significance/follicular lesion of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS) were retrieved from the cytopathology reports using the institution’s electronic Healthcare-Results Management System. Results. A total of 59 adult patients with thyroid nodules were included. Nodules which were initially AUS/FLUS turned out to be malignant on repeat FNAB in 38 patients with a prevalence of 64.41% (95% CI: 50.87-76.45%). There was no significant difference with regards to clinical, ultrasonographic and cytopathologic features of malignancy between benign and malignant nodules. Conclusion. Findings of this study support surgical intervention as a reasonable option after a repeat Bethesda III classification on FNAB. However, the small sample size warrants confirmation in future studies with a representative sample of patients.

    • Authors: Mohd Haidir Roslan, Mohd Asyiq Raffali, Shawal Faizal Mohamad, Nik Ritza Kosai Nik Mahmood, Hamat Hamdi Che Hassan
      Pages: 94 - 100
      Abstract: Objective. Obesity is known to be associated with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction due to its effect on blood pressure and glucose tolerance. We aimed to investigate whether weight loss after bariatric surgery might improve diastolic dysfunction through in-depth echocardiographic examination. Methodology. We recruited twenty-eight patients who were about to undergo bariatric surgery by purposive sampling. They underwent echocardiography at baseline and 6 months after surgery with a focus on diastolic function measurements and global longitudinal strain (GLS). They also had fasting serum lipid and glucose measurements pre- and post-surgery. Results. The mean weight loss after surgery was 24.1 kg. Out of the 28 subjects, fifteen (54%) initially had diastolic dysfunction before surgery. Only two had persistent diastolic dysfunction 6 months after surgery. The mean indexed left atrial volume 6 months post-surgery was 27.1 from 32 ml/m2 prior to surgery. The average E/e’ is 11.78 post-surgery from 13.43 pre-surgery. The left ventricular GLS became (-)25.7% after surgery from (-)21.2% prior to surgery. Their post-surgery fasting serum lipid and glucose levels also showed significant improvement. Conclusion. Our study reinforced the existing evidence that bariatric surgery significantly improved echocardiographic parameters of diastolic function and left ventricular global longitudinal strain, along with various metabolic profiles.

  • The Efficacy and Safety of Myo-inositol Supplementation for the Prevention
           of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus in Overweight and Obese Pregnant Women:

    • Authors: Patricia Ann Factor, Hannah Corpuz
      Pages: 102 - 112
      Abstract: Background. Myo-inositol has emerged as one of the preventive therapies for the development of gestational diabetes mellitus in at-risk populations. This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of myo-inositol in decreasing the incidence of gestational diabetes in overweight and obese pregnant women. Methodology. This meta-analysis was conducted using the standard Cochrane methodology and reported in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) 2020 guidelines. Inclusion criteria were randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that enrolled overweight and obese pregnant women and used myo-inositol
      supplementation. The primary outcome was the incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus at 24-28 weeks. Secondary outcomes included cesarean section rate, the incidence of pregnancy-induced hypertension, macrosomia and preterm delivery. Risk ratios (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used for dichotomous data. Results. Six RCTs were included. Compared to standard micronutrient supplementation, standard dose of myo-inositol (4 g) may reduce the incidence of GDM (RR 0.54; CI [0.30, 0.96]; n = 887 women), but the certainty of evidence is low to very low. With low-dose myo-inositol however, evidence is uncertain about its benefit on the incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus in overweight and obese women with RR 0.71; CI [0.14, 3.50]. No adverse effects were noted. For the secondary outcomes, standard dose myo-inositol appears to reduce the incidence of pregnancy-induced hypertension and preterm delivery, but the certainty of evidence is low to very low. Conclusion. Current evidence is uncertain on the potential benefit of myo-inositol supplementation in overweight and obese pregnant women. While studies show that 4 g myo-inositol per day may decrease the incidence of GDM, pregnancy-induced hypertension and pre-term birth with no associated risk of serious adverse events, the certainty of evidence is low to very low. Future high-quality trials may provide more compelling evidence to support practice recommendations.

  • Effect of Yoga and Walking on Glycemic Control for the Management of Type
           2 Diabetes

    • Authors: Biswajit Dhali, Sridip Chatterjee, Sudip Sundar Das, Mary D Cruz
      Pages: 113 - 122
      Abstract: Background. A daily habit of yogic practice or walking, along with an oral hypoglycemic agent (OHA) could be beneficial for better control of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to find out the efficiency of yoga or walking on glycemic control in T2DM. Methodology. The present systematic review and meta-analysis were completed according to the PRISMA guidelines. The risk of bias in included studies was evaluated, by using the revised Cochrane risk-of-bias tool for randomized trials. Meta-analysis was implemented using RevMan software. Forest plots were used to illustrate the study findings and meta-analysis results. Results. Sixteen studies were included in this systematic review, where 1820 participants were allocated to one of the following interventions: yoga, walking, and without any regular exercise (control group). Participants were between 17–75 years of age. Compared to the control group, the yoga group had a significant reduction in fasting blood glucose (FBG) by 31.98 mg/dL (95% CI,–47.93 to –16.03), postprandial blood glucose (PPBG) by 25.59 mg/dL (95% CI, –44.00 to –7.18], glycosylated hemoglobin (HbAlc) by 0.73% (95% CI, –1.24 to -0.22), fasting insulin by 7.19 μIU/mL (95% CI, –12.10 to –2.28), and homeostatic model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) by 3.87 (95% CI, –8.40 to -0.66). Compared to the control group, the walking group had a significant reduction in FBG by 12.37 mg/dL (95% CI, –20.06 to –4.68) and HbA1c by 0.35% (95% CI, –0.70 to –0.01). Compared to the walking group, the yoga group had a significant reduction in FBG by 12.07 mg/dL (95% CI, –24.34 to – 0.20), HbA1c by 0.20% (95% CI, –0.37 to –0.04), fasting insulin by 10.06 μIU/mL (95% CI, –23.84 to 3.71) and HOMA-IR by 5.97 (95% CI, –16.92 to 4.99). Conclusions. Yoga or walking with OHA has positive effects on glycemic control. For the management of T2DM, yoga has relatively more significant effects on glycemic control than walking.

  • Laron Syndrome

    • Authors: Niladri Das, Silima Subhasnigdha Tarenia, Souvik Saha, Prashant Manohar Gaikwad, Deep Kamlesh Hathi, Soumik Goswami, Arjun Baidya, Nilanjan Sengupta
      Pages: 124 - 127
      Abstract: Primary growth hormone (GH) resistance or growth hormone insensitivity syndrome, also called Laron syndrome, is a hereditary disease caused by mutations in the GH receptor or in the post-receptor signaling pathway. This disorder is characterized by postnatal growth failure resembling GH deficiency. Differentiating the two conditions is necessary. We present the cases of two siblings, a 16-year-old female and a 9-year-old male, born from a consanguineous union. Both had normal birth weights with subsequent severe short stature and delayed teeth eruption, with no features suggestive of any systemic illness. Serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) and insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3 (IGFBP3) were both low. Suspecting GH deficiency, provocative testing with clonidine was done revealing peak growth hormone &gt;40 ng/mL in both patients. In view of low IGF1 and IGFBP3 and high GH on stimulation, IGF1 generation test was done for both siblings, with values supporting the diagnosis of GH insensitivity or Laron syndrome.

  • Corneal Confocal Microscopy Identifies Structural Small Fibre
           Abnormalities in an Adolescent with Type 1 Diabetes and Impaired Awareness
           of Hypoglycaemia

    • Authors: Mainak Banerjee, Pradip Mukhopadhyay, Madhurima Basu, Sujoy Ghosh
      Pages: 128 - 130
      Abstract: Impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia (IAH) is present in around 25-40% of individuals with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Herein, we present a case of an adolescent with T1DM and IAH who had worse corneal nerve parameters compared to a T1DM adolescent without IAH. Small fibre abnormalities detected by corneal confocal microscopy in an objective easy-to-perform non-invasive test might be a surrogate indicator of underlying autonomic dysfunction in T1DM and IAH.

  • Clinical Features of Unrecognized Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia due to
           17α-hydroxylase Deficiency Since Adolescence:

    • Authors: Rashmi K G, Lavanya Ravichandran, Ayan Roy, Dukhabandhu Naik, Sadishkumar Kamalanathan, Jayaprakash Sahoo, Aaron Chapla, Nihal Thomas
      Pages: 131 - 134
      Abstract: The majority of patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) present with a deficiency of 21-hydroxylase or 11-beta-hydroxylase, which account for 90% and 7% of cases, respectively. However, CAH due to 17α-hydroxylase deficiency (17OHD) is an extremely rare form of CAH (<1% of all CAH cases) that leads to a deficiency of cortisol and sex steroids, along with features of aldosterone excess. This is a case of a 51-year-old single female who was referred to us for the evaluation of new-onset hypertension and hypokalaemia of one-year duration. She was born out of a second-degree consanguineous marriage and reared as a female. She was diagnosed to have testicular feminization syndrome when she presented with a history of primary amenorrhea, absence of secondary sexual characteristics, and bilateral labial swellings at pubertal age. Subsequently, she underwent gonadectomy at the age of 16. Due to the presence of hypertension, metabolic alkalosis and bilaterally enlarged adrenals on CT scan, 46, XY disorders of sexual development (DSD) was considered. A karyotype confirmed the presence of 46, XY chromosomal sex, and genetic analysis revealed a mutation in the CYP17A1 gene, thus confirming the diagnosis of 17a-hydroxylase deficiency.

  • Persistent Bilateral Atypical Femoral Fractures in an
           Antiresorptive-Naïve Singaporean Chinese Patient with Graves’ Disease

    • Authors: Kuan Swen Choo, Lily Mae Dacay, Le Roy Chong, Linsey Utami Gani
      Pages: 135 - 140
      Abstract: Atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) are rare adverse effects of bisphosphonate therapy. We report an unusual case of bilateral diaphyseal AFFs in an antiresorptive-naïve Singaporean Chinese female with Graves’ disease. She presented with complete right AFF requiring surgical fixation, and persistent left incomplete AFF for over four years. Femoral bowing, varus femoral geometry, and ethnic influence likely contributed to the AFFs’ formation. This case may provide insights into the pathogenesis of AFFs in high-risk Asian populations.

  • Sex Reversal Syndrome (SRS)

    • Authors: Kishore Kumar shil, Tahmina Ferdousi, Tahniyah Haq, MA Hasanat
      Pages: 141 - 144
      Abstract: We report a case of an SRY-positive 46,XX Indian male who presented with small testis and phallus, poor beard and mustache development and gynecomastia at the age of 24 years. He was biochemically found to have hypergonadotropic hypogonadism. He had 46,XX karyotype and Quantitative Fluorescence-PCR (QF-PCR) identified the SRY gene on the X chromosome. SRY-positive 46 XX male SRS cases usually present as phenotypically male since birth but develop features of hypogonadism, poor testicular development, and infertility after puberty. Infertility, hypogonadism, external genital development, and psychological distress are the major concerns during the management of the patients. Testosterone therapy for hypogonadism, artificial reproductive technologies for fertility, surgical repair of hypospadias/cryptorchidism/under-virilized genitalia and psychological and genetic counseling are helpful for proper management of the patients.

  • Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis Presenting as Anterior Neck Mass in a Child:

    • Authors: Kristine Mae Betansos, Melissa Joyanne Cachero, Caridad Santos, Eve Fernandez, Marichu Mabulac, Lorna Abad
      Pages: 148 - 153
      Abstract: Thyroid involvement in Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) is rare. We report a 10-year-old Filipino male who presented
      with a rapidly enlarging goiter. Computed tomography scan showed thyroid and bilateral submandibular masses with
      malignant features, pulmonary blebs and hepatic cysts. Ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy findings were consistent with LCH and chemotherapy was initiated. This case demonstrates that LCH should be considered in patients with goiter. Multidisciplinary management is warranted to achieve proper diagnosis and institute timely treatment.
