Patterns of lipid changes among type 2 diabetes patients in Sudan
AbstractThis study investigated the patterns and determinants of lipid disorders among a group of 250 type 2 adult diabetic patients and 60 age- and sex-matched healthy controls in Sudan. Demographic and clinical data, body mass index and waist circumference, and fasting blood samples were taken to estimate the glucose and lipid profile. The mean duration of diabetes was 9.4 years and 46.0% of patients had poor glycaemic control. Compared to controls we detected a statistically significant increase in triglycerides level and a decrease in HDL-C levels. Other lipid values showed a slight increase compared to controls. There was a statistically significant association of triglycerides and HDL-C with increasing age, female sex, obesity, physical inactivity and poor glycaemic control of diabetes

Hadaegh, F.; Harati, H.; Ghanbarian, A.; Azizi, F. (2009)This study is the first report on the prevalence of coronary heart disease [CHD] and its associated risk factors in adult residents of Tehran. Standard supine ECG data were collected for 5984 men and women aged > /= 30 years and coded by Minnesota criteria. All major cardiovascular risk factors were also measured. Based on Rose angina, self-reported history of CHD or ECG-defined CHD, the aged-adjusted prevalence of CHD was 21.8% [22.3% in women and 18.8% in men]. Variables independently associated with CHD were female sex, age, systolic blood ...
Antioxidant status and lipid peroxidation activity in evaluating hepatocellular damage in children Mahdy, K.A.; Abdel Shaheed, A.; Khadr, M.E.; El Shamy, K.A.I. (2009)Serum levels of glutathione reductase [GR], glutathione S-transferase-alpha [GST-alpha] and malondialdehyde [MDA] were determined to evaluate their use in diagnosing hepatocellular damage in 75 children with liver disease. Except for level of GR in patients with HBV, GR, GST-alpha and MDA were raised significantly in patients compared with controls. At 100% specificity, the sensitivity of the 3 markers for detecting hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and schistosomiasis infection respectively were: 16.7%, 100.0% and 17.7% for GR; 33.3%, 62.1% ...
