Can Subclinical Rickets Cause SCFE? A Prospective, Pilot Study
Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:12:15 +0100 | Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics
Background: Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is a common disorder of the growing hip; however, its etiology remains unknown. Vitamin D (25-OH) is a major regulator of bone homeostasis and calcium metabolism. Vitamin D deficiency is one of the major causes of rickets, and rickets has been associated with SCFE. Increased body mass index (BMI) has been linked to SCFE and obese children are known to have lower vitamin D levels. Therefore, we hypothesize that children who develop SCFE may have subclinical rickets predisposing them to the development of physeal disease.

The effect of hypothyroidism occurring in patients with metabolic syndrome.

CONCLUSIONS: In view of the above, it may be hypothesized that in patients with both MetS and hypothyroidism, especially of male gender, the risk of death of cardiovascular causes is greater due to the severity of MetS components. Moreover, we suggest that in patients recently diagnosed with MetS, active detection of hypothyroidism should be performed by determining the TSH levels, while patients diagnosed with hypothyroidism (apart from replacement therapy) should be monitored for the possible occurrence of MetS in the future.

CONCLUSIONS: The TT genotype of TaqI VDR gene polymorphism was correlated with low levels of OC in overweight and obese subjects. However, TaqI and ApaI VDR gene polymorphisms were not associated with T2D. (Endokrynol Pol 2015; 66 (4): 329-333).

[Articles] Bariatric–metabolic surgery versus conventional medical treatment in obese patients with type 2 diabetes: 5 year follow-up of an open-label, single-centre, randomised controlled trial
Fri, 04 Sep 2015 10:55:37 +0100 | LANCET
Surgery is more effective than medical treatment for the long-term control of obese patients with type 2 diabetes and should be considered in the treatment algorithm of this disease. However, continued monitoring of glycaemic control is warranted because of potential relapse of hyperglycaemia. (Source: LANCET)

[Comment] Type 2 diabetes: multimodal treatment of a complex disease
Fri, 04 Sep 2015 10:55:25 +0100 | LANCET
Type 2 diabetes is becoming the plague of the 21st century. With the so-called diabesity epidemic the disease threatens to reduce life expectancy for future generations globally. Surgery for diabetes has been marketed as an effective treatment option for patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Different surgical procedures have been used successfully, with some changing the anatomy of the stomach, bypassing parts of the gut, or using devices. These trials have provided an intriguing model to study the role of the gut in maintaining glucose homoeostasis. (Source: LANCET)
