ABSTRACT

Abstract The present study was designed to evaluate the strength of association of raised plasma homocysteine concentration as a risk factor for coronary heart disease independent of conventional risk factor. It was a case control study conducted at Punjab Institute of Cardiology Lahore. A total of 210 subjects aged 25 to 60 years comprising of 105 newly admitted patients of CHD as cases and 105 age and sex matched healthy individuals with no history of CHD as control were recruited for the study. Fasting blood samples were obtained from cases and controls. Plasma homocysteine was analyzed by fluorescence polarization immunoassay (FPIA) method on automated immunoassay analyzer (Abbott IMX). Total cholesterol, triglyceride and HDL cholesterol were analyzed using calorimetric kit methods. The concentration of LDL cholesterol was calculated using Friedewald formula. The patients were also assessed for traditional risk factors such as age, sex, family history of CVD, hypertension, smoking and physical activity, and were compared with control subjects. The collected data was entered in SPSS version 24 for analysis and interpretation.The mean age in controls and experimental groups were 43.00± 8.42 years and 44.72± 8.59 years with statistically same distribution (p- value= 0.144). The mean plasma homocysteine for cases was 22.33± 9.22 µmol/L where as it was 12.59±3.73 µmol/L in control group. Highly significant difference was seen between the mean plasma level of homocysteine in cases and controls (p˂0.001).Simple logistic regression indicates a strong association of coronary heart disease with hyperhomocysteinemia (OR 7.45), which remained significantly associated with coronary heart disease by multivariate logistic regression (OR 7.10, 95%C1 3.12-12.83, p=0.000). The present study concludes that elevated levels of Plasma homocysteine is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease independent of conventional risk factors and can be used as an indicator for predicting the future possibility for the onset of CVD.


Resumo O presente estudo foi desenhado para avaliar a força da associação da concentração elevada de homocisteína no plasma como um fator de risco para doença cardíaca coronária independente do fator de risco convencional. Foi um estudo de caso-controle realizado no Punjab Institute of Cardiology Lahore. Um total de 210 indivíduos com idade entre 25 e 60 anos, compreendendo 105 pacientes recém-admitidos de CHD como casos e 105 indivíduos saudáveis ​​pareados por idade e sexo sem histórico de CHD como controle, foi recrutado para o estudo. Amostras de sangue em jejum foram obtidas de casos e controles. A homocisteína plasmática foi analisada pelo método de imunoensaio de polarização de fluorescência (FPIA) em analisador de imunoensaio automatizado (Abbott IMX). Colesterol total, triglicerídeos e colesterol HDL foram analisados ​​usando métodos de kit calorimétrico. A concentração de colesterol LDL foi calculada pela fórmula de Friedewald. Os pacientes também foram avaliados para fatores de risco tradicionais, como idade, sexo, história familiar de DCV, hipertensão, tabagismo e atividade física, e foram comparados com indivíduos de controle. Os dados coletados foram inseridos no SPSS versão 24 para análise e interpretação. A média de idade nos grupos controles e experimentais foi de 43,00 ± 8,42 anos e 44,72 ± 8,59 anos com distribuição estatisticamente igual (p-valor = 0,144). A homocisteína plasmática média para os casos foi de 22,33 ± 9,22 µmol / L, enquanto no grupo controle foi de 12,59 ± 3,73 µmol / L. Diferença altamente significativa foi observada entre o nível plasmático médio de homocisteína em casos e controles (p ˂ 0,001). A regressão logística simples indica uma forte associação de doença cardíaca coronária com hiper-homocisteinemia (OR 7,45), que permaneceu significativamente associada com doença cardíaca coronária por multivariada regressão logística (OR 7,10, 95% C1 3,12-12,83, p = 0,000). O presente estudo conclui que níveis elevados de homocisteína plasmática são fator de risco independente para doença cardíaca coronária, independentemente dos fatores de risco convencionais, e pode ser usado como um indicador para prever a possibilidade futura de aparecimento de DCV.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: algunos estudios han señalado que valores de glucemia en ayunas entre 100 y 109 mg/dL se asocian con frecuencias elevadas de prediabetes cuando el criterio de clasificación son los valores de HbA1c. La Sociedad Argentina de Diabetes (SAD) sostiene a 110 mg/dL como valor a partir del cual se clasifica a un paciente como portador de glucemia en ayunas alterada; la frecuencia de individuos posiblemente clasificados en forma incorrecta, según este criterio, aún no se conoce en la población argentina. Objetivos: establecer la frecuencia con que se presenta prediabetes según HbA1c en una población sin diagnóstico de diabetes mellitus (DM) con glucemias en ayunas entre 100 y 109 mg/dL; correlacionar las dos variables y cuantificar la probabilidad de que esto ocurra respecto de otros con glucemias en ayunas <100 mg/dL. Materiales y métodos: se incluyeron 1.002 muestras de igual número de sujetos desde 45 laboratorios de análisis clínicos de la Asociación de Laboratorios de Alta Complejidad (ALAC), con procesamiento local de glucemia y centralizado de HbA1c por high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Análisis estadístico: chi cuadrado, odds ratio, coeficiente de correlación y determinación de Pearson, y correlación serial de Durbin-Watson. Resultados: frecuencia de HbA1c ≥5,7% en la población estudiada con glucemias de ayunas entre 100 y 109 mg/dL=29,7%; test de chi cuadrado: p<0,001; odds ratio de tener HbA1c ≥5,7% entre la población con glucemias en ayunas de 100 a 109 mg/dL vs aquella con valores <100 mg/dL=4,328 (IC 95% 2,922-6,411); r=0,852, r2 = 0,727, Durbin-Watson=1,152. Conclusiones: la prediabetes diagnosticada por HbA1c resultó cuatro veces más frecuente en la población estudiada con glucemias en ayunas entre 100 y 109 mg/dL, que en aquella con valores por debajo de 100 mg/dL.


Introduction: some studies have shown that fasting blood glucose values between 100 and 109 mg/dL are associated with high rates of prediabetes when the classification criteria are HbA1c values. The Argentine Diabetes Society still maintains 110 mg/dL as the value from which a patient is classified as having impaired fasting blood glucose; the frequency of individuals possibly incorrectly classified, according to this criterion, is not yet known in any Argentine population. Objectives: to establish the frequency in a population without a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus with fasting blood glucose levels between 100 and 109 mg/dL in which prediabetes occurs according to HbA1c, to correlate both variables and to quantify the probability that this predicts with respect to others with fasting blood glucose levels <100 mg/dL. Materials and methods: 1.002 samples from the same number of subjects from 45 clinical laboratories belonging to ALAC, with local processing of blood glucose and centralized processing of HbA1c by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Statistical analysis: chi square, odds ratio, Pearson correlation coefficient, coefficient of determination and Durbin-Watson serial correlation. Results: frequency of HbA1c ≥5.7% in the studied population with fasting blood glucose levels between 100 and 109 mg/ dL = 29.7%, chi square test: p<0.001; odds ratio of having HbA1c ≥5.7% between the population with fasting blood glucose levels of 100 to 109 mg/dL vs that one with values <100 mg/dL=4.328 (95% CI 2.922-6.411); r=0.852, r2 =0.727, DurbinWatson=1.152. Conclusions: prediabetes diagnosed by HbA1c was four times more frequent in the studied population with fasting glucose values between 100 and 109 mg/dL than in that one with values below 100 mg/dL.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Appetite regulation is integral to food intake and is modulated by complex interactions between internal and external stimuli. Hormonal mechanisms which stimulate or inhibit intake have been characterized, but the physiologic effects of serum levels of such hormones in short-term appetite regulation have received little attention. AIM: To evaluate whether fasting levels of orexigenic/anorexigenic hormones were associated with energy intake at breakfast, served soon after drawing a fasting blood sample, in a group of adolescents. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Anthropometry, body composition and fasting blood levels of leptin, insulin, ghrelin, and orexin-A were measured in 655 Chilean adolescents aged 16.8 ± 0.3 years (52% males). Energy intake was measured at a semi-standardized breakfast. Associations between hormone levels and energy intake were studied using multivariate linear models. RESULTS: Thirty nine percent of participants were overweight/ obese. After an overnight fast, median values for leptin, insulin, ghrelin and orexin-A were 7.3 ng/mL, 6.7 IU/dL, 200.8 pg/mL, and 16.1 pg/mL, respectively. Participants ate on average 637 ± 239 calories at breakfast. In multivariable models, insulin levels were inversely and independently associated with caloric intake at breakfast (β = −18.65; p < 0.05), whereas leptin, ghrelin and orexin-A levels were positively and independently associated with intake: β= 5.56, β = 0.34 and β = 8.40, respectively, p < 0.05. CONCLUSIONS: Fasting leptin, ghrelin and orexin-A were positively associated with energy intake during breakfast provided soon after the blood draw. Insulin was negatively associated with energy intake. Modifiable factors influencing levels of appetite regulating hormones could be a potential target for influencing food intake.


ANTECEDENTES: La regulación del apetito es parte integral de la ingesta alimentaria y es modulada por complejas interacciones entre estímulos internos y externos. Se han caracterizado los mecanismos hormonales que estimulan o inhiben la ingesta, pero los efectos fisiológicos de los niveles séricos de tales hormonas en la regulación del apetito a corto plazo han recibido poca atención. OBJETIVO: Evaluar si los niveles en ayunas de hormonas orexigénicas/ anorexigénicas se asocian con la ingesta energética en el desayuno, entregado inmediatamente después de una muestra de sangre en ayunas, en un grupo de adolescentes. MATERIAL Y MÉTODO: Se efectuaron mediciones antropométricas, composición corporal y medición de niveles en ayunas de leptina, insulina, grelina y orexina-A en 655 adolescentes de 16,8 ± 0,26 años. La ingesta energética se midió en un desayuno semiestandarizado. Se estudiaron las asociaciones entre los niveles hormonales y la ingesta energética mediante modelos lineales multivariados. RESULTADOS: Los valores de leptina, insulina, grelina y orexina-A fueron 7,3 ng/mL, 6,7 UI/dL, 200,8 pg/mL y 16,1 pg/mL respectivamente. Los participantes comieron un promedio de 637 ± 239 calorías en el desayuno. Los niveles de insulina se asociaron inversa e independientemente con la ingesta del desayuno (β = −18,65; p < 0,05), mientras que los niveles de leptina, grelina y orexina-A se asociaron positiva e independientemente con la ingesta: β = 5,65; β = 0,34; β = 8,40, (p < 0,05). CONCLUSIONES: La leptina, grelina y orexina-A en ayunas se asociaron positivamente con la ingesta de energía durante el desayuno proporcionado poco después de la muestra de sangre. La insulina se asoció negativamente con la ingesta de energía. Los factores modificables que influyen en las hormonas reguladoras del apetito podrían ser un objetivo potencial para influir en la ingesta de alimentos.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to verify whether the parameters of the blood count and the fasting glucose level before treatment are related to prognosis and survival in cervical cancer (IIB-IVB staging). METHODS: Patients with cervical cancer (stages IIB-IVB) were evaluated (n=80). Age, parity, staging, histological grade, histological type, hemoglobin, red blood cells, hematocrit, neutrophil, lymphocyte and platelet counts, red blood cell distribution width, neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-lymphocyte ratio, fasting glucose levels, overall survival, and disease-free survival were evaluated. The results of laboratory parameters were compared using the Mann-Whitney U test. Receiver operating characteristic curve was used to obtain the area under the curve and determine the best cutoff values for each parameter. Survival was verified by using the Kaplan-Meier method, followed by the log-rank test. The level of significance was ≤0.05. RESULTS: Regarding staging, lower hemoglobin values (p=0.0013), red blood cells (p=0.009), hematocrit (p=0.0016), higher leukocytes (p=0.0432), neutrophils (p=0.0176), platelets (p=0.0140), red blood cell distribution width (RDW) (p=0.0073), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (p=0.0039), platelet-lymphocyte ratio (p=0.0006), and fasting glucose level (p=0.0278) were found in IIIA-IVB compared with IIB staging. Shorter disease-free survival was associated with hemoglobin ≤12.3 g/dl (p=0.0491), hematocrit ≤38.5% (p=0.05), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio >2.9 (p=0.0478), and platelet-lymphocyte ratio >184.9 (p=0.0207). Shorter overall survival was associated with hemoglobin ≤12.3 g/dl (p=0.0131), hematocrit ≤38.5% (p=0.0376), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio >2.9 (p=0.0258), and platelet-lymphocyte ratio >184.9 (p=0.0038). CONCLUSION: The analysis of these low-cost and easily accessible parameters could be a way to monitor patients in order to predict treatment failures and act as early as possible.

ABSTRACT

The soaring prevalence of obesity and its complications presents a significant health care burden, and there is currently a lack of effective and sustainable treatment methods. Time-restricted eating (TRE) is a specific intermittent fasting (IF) protocol involving consistent fasting and eating periods within a 24-hour cycle. Time-restricted eating can restore robust circadian rhythms and improve metabolic health, providing an emerging dietary strategy for the prevention and treatment of obesity and related metabolic diseases. Previous TRE trials laid the groundwork, and indicate a need for further clinical research including large-scale controlled trials to determine TRE efficacy and the mechanisms by which it may affect humans.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the relationship between fasting blood glucose level and thromboembolism events in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). Methods: This was an observational study based on data from a multicenter, prospective Chinese atrial fibrillation registry cohort, which included 18 703 consecutive patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) in 31 hospitals in Beijing from August 2011 to December 2018. Patients were divided into 5 groups according to status of comorbid diabetes and fasting glucose levels at admission: normal blood glucose (normal glucose group), pre-diabetes group, strict glycemic control group, average glycemic control group and poor glycemic control group. Patients were followed up by telephone or outpatient service every 6 months. The primary follow-up endpoint was thromboembolic events, including ischemic stroke and systemic embolism. The secondary endpoint was the composite endpoint of cardiovascular death and thromboembolic events. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and multifactorial Cox regression were used to analyze the correlation between fasting glucose levels and endpoint events. Results: The age of 18 703 patients with NVAF was (63.8±12.0) years, and there were 11 503 (61.5%) male patients. There were 11 877 patients (63.5%) in normal blood glucose group, 2 023 patients (10.8%)in pre-diabetes group, 1 131 patients (6.0%) in strict glycemic control group, 811 patients in average glycemic control group and 2 861 patients(4.3%) in poor glycemic control group. Of the 4 803 diabetic patients, 1 131 patients (23.5%) achieved strict glycemic control, of whom 328 (29.0%) were hypoglycemic (fasting blood glucose level<4.4 mmol/L at admission). During a mean follow-up of (51±23) months (up to 82 months), thromboembolic events were reported in 984 patients (5.3%). The survival curve analysis of Kaplan Meier showed that the incidence rates of thromboembolic events in normal glucose group, pre-diabetes group, strict glycemic control group, average glycemic control group and poor glycemic control group were 1.10/100, 1.41/100, 2.09/100, 1.46/100 and 1.71/100 person-years, respectively (χ²=53.0, log-rank P<0.001). The incidence rates of composite endpoint events were 1.86/100, 2.17/100, 4.08/100, 2.58/100, 3.16/100 person-years (χ²=72.3, log-rank P<0.001). The incidence of thromboembolic events and composite endpoint events in the other four groups were higher than that in the normal blood glucose group (P<0.001). Multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that compared with normal glucose group, the risk of thromboembolism increased in pre-diabetes group(HR=1.23, 95%CI 1.00-1.51, P=0.049), strict glycemic control group(HR=1.32, 95%CI 1.06-1.65, P=0.013) and poor glycemic control group(HR=1.26, 95%CI 1.01-1.58, P=0.044). Conclusion: Both high or low fasting glucose may be an independent risk factor for thromboembolic events in patients with NVAF.

ABSTRACT

Background: Offspring of hypertensive parents have been reported to have alteration on their sympathovagal balance and have exaggerated response to stressful conditions. Many Christians observe a period of fasting at the beginning of every year, which imposes some stress on their bodies. Objective: This study aims to investigate the effect of 21-day intermittent fasting on some cardiovascular parameters in offspring of hypertensive and normotensive parents. Materials and Methods: Eighty young adults (20­28 years) were divided into equal number of male and female offspring of hypertensive and normotensive parents based on questionnaire. Their body weight, height, waist circumference (WC), body mass index (BMI), systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and heart rate (HR) were recorded 1 week before the fasting period began and then weekly for 3 weeks, in which they fasted. Results: The weight, BMI, and WC reduced during fasting, but the reductions were not significant (P > 0.05). The SBP and DBP were higher in male offspring of hypertensive parents than all other groups. SBP was also significantly (P < 0.05) higher in males than females before fast and during fast. Fasting significantly reduced the SBP in the male offspring of both hypertensive and normotensive parents. The HR reduced in the females during fast but increased from a lower level in males to a value not significantly different from prefasting level. Conclusion: Fasting reduces the high SBP and DBP in male offspring of hypertensive parents, which is beneficial to their cardiovascular system.

ABSTRACT

Los regímenes basados en la restricción intermitente de la ingesta de alimentos, como el ayuno intermitente, pueden parecer novedosos pero constituyen en realidad una práctica milenaria. Muchas veces en nuestras consultas como médicos de familia los pacientes con problemas de sobrepeso u obesidad nos preguntan sobre estas prácticas y sus efectos en la salud. A partir de la viñeta clínica de uno de esos pacientes, revisamos la evidencia disponible sobre el tema y encontramos que la restricción intermitente puede ser una intervención eficaz para la disminución de peso, aunque sin diferencias significativas con respecto a la restricción continua. Para otros desenlaces analizados, como el riesgo cardiovascular, la evidencia no es tan clara. Si bien la restricción alimentaria intermitente puede ser una opción útil en para los pacientes que desean disminuir su peso, se necesitan más estudios para determinar la variante más adecuada, su duración óptima, la mejor frecuencia semanal y sus beneficios a largo plazo. (AU)


Intermittent dietary restriction, like intermittent fasting, may seem like a novel diet, but it's actually an age-old practice. Many times in our practice as family physicians, patients with overweight or obesity problems ask us about this practice and its effects on health. From the clinical vignette of one of our patients, we reviewed the available evidence on the subject and found that intermittent dietary restriction could be an effective intervention for weight loss, but without significant differences with respect to continuous caloric restriction. For other outcomes analyzed, such as cardiovascular risk, the evidence is not as clear. Al though intermittent dietary restriction may be a useful option in our patients, more studies are needed to determine which variant is the most appropriate, its optimal duration, weekly frequency, and long-term benefits.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Determinar la diferencia de incidencia de enterocolitis necrotizante asociada a transfusión en recién nacidos pretérmino con y sin implementación de un protocolo de ayuno peritransfusional. Métodos: Estudio observacional retrospectivo. Se incluyeron todos los recién nacidos pretérmino que fueron transfundidos con unidad de glóbulos rojos entre julio 2015 y octubre 2016 en la unidad de recién nacidos un centro de tercer nivel de Colombia. El protocolo de ayuno peritransfusional se inició a partir de abril 2016. La enterocolitis necrotizante asociada a transfusión se definió como enterocolitis necrotizante presentada dentro de las 48 horas posteriores a la transfusión. Se analizaron variables demográficas, alimentación, número de transfusiones y variables asociadas a enterocolitis necrotizante. Resultados: Durante el tiempo de estudio, 148 recién nacidos prematuros necesitaron al menos una transfusión de glóbulos rojos que representaron 385 eventos de transfusión. Se informaron siete casos de enterocolitis necrotizante asociada a transfusión. La incidencia acumulada global fue 4,7 por ciento (3,6 por ciento con protocolo de ayuno peritransfusional y 6,3 por ciento sin protocolo), la tasa de incidencia global de enterocolitis necrotizante asociada a transfusión fue 18/1000 personas-transfusión (IC95 por ciento 7-37/1000 personas-transfusión), mayor en el grupo sin protocolo (28/1000 personas-transfusión) que en el grupo con protocolo (12/1000 personas-transfusión), pero sin significación estadística. Conclusiones: La implementación del protocolo de ayuno peritransfusional podría disminuir la incidencia y gravedad de la enterocolitis necrotizante asociada a transfusión. Se requieren estudios prospectivos para establecer la relación entre la alimentación enteral durante la transfusión y la enterocolitis necrotizante(AU)


Objective: Determine the difference in incidence of transfusion-associated necrotizing enterocolitis in preterm newborns with and without implementation of a peri-transfusion fasting protocol. Methods: Retrospective observational study. All preterm newborns that were transfused with red blood cell units during the period from July 2015 to October 2016 in the newborns´ unit at a third level of care center in Colombia were included. The peri-transfusion fasting protocol started on April 2016. Transfusion-associated necrotizing enterocolitis was defined as necrotizing enterocolitis presented within 48 hours after the transfusion. Demographic variables, feeding, number of transfusions and variables associated with necrotizing enterocolitis were analyzed. Results: During the study time, 148 premature newborns needed at least one transfusion of red blood cells that accounted for 385 transfusion events. Seven cases of transfusion-associated necrotizing enterocolitis were reported. The overall cumulative incidence was 4.7 percent (3.6 percent with peri-transfusion fasting protocol and 6.3 percent without protocol), the overall incidence rate of transfusion-associated necrotizing enterocolitis was 18/1000 people-transfusion (IC 95 percent 7-37/1000 people-transfusion); it was higher in the group without protocol (28/1000 people-transfusion) than in the group with protocol (12/1000 people-transfusion), but without statistical significance. Conclusions: Implementation of the peri-transfusion fasting protocol may decrease the incidence and severity of necrotizing enterocolitis associated with transfusion. Prospective studies are required to establish the relationship between enteral feeding during transfusion and necrotizing enterocolitis(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La diabetes mellitus e hiperglucemia, en pacientes con la COVID-19, predisponen a mayor gravedad de la enfermedad y peores resultados a corto plazo. Objetivo: Identificar diferencias clínicas, de parámetros humorales, evolución y en el uso de medicamentos en pacientes infectados con el SARS-CoV-2, en relación con el estado glucémico, durante la pandemia de la COVID-19. Métodos: Estudio retrospectivo, de todos los pacientes infectados con SARS-CoV-2, atendidos en el Hospital Militar Dr. Mario Muñoz Monroy, desde el 17 de marzo hasta el 4 de junio de 2020. Se recopilaron variables demográficas, evolución de los síntomas, estadía hospitalaria, antecedentes patológicos personales, parámetros humorales al ingreso, complicaciones y uso de medicamentos. Fueron creados tres grupos: diabéticos (n = 16), hiperglucémicos (glucemia en ayunas ≥ 7,8 mmol/L; n = 10) y normoglucémicos (n = 219). Se utilizaron las pruebas de ji cuadrado y H de Kruskal - Wallis, para las comparaciones entre los grupos. Se usó un intervalo de confianza del 95 por ciento. Resultados: Los pacientes diabéticos e hiperglucémicos, en relación con normoglucémicos, tuvieron mayor proporción de sintomáticos al ingreso, hipertensión arterial, cardiopatía isquémica, insuficiencia renal crónica, otros antecedentes, complicaciones, mortalidad, uso de esteroides y Jusvinza. Además, tuvieron menores valores de hematocrito y linfocitos, mayores de neutrófilos, plaquetas, creatinina, aspartato amino transferasa, glutamil transpeptidasa, fosfatasa alcalina y deshidrogenasa láctica. Conclusiones: Tanto la diabetes como la hiperglucemia predisponen a formas clínicas más graves de COVID-19, con peores parámetros humorales, evolución y mayor mortalidad. En estos pacientes se usa con mayor frecuencia esteroides y Jusvinza(AU)


Introduction: Diabetes mellitus and hyperglycemia, in patients with COVID-19, predispose to greater severity of the disease and worse short-term outcomes. Objective: To identify clinical differences, of humoral parameters, evolution and in the use of medications in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2; in relation to glycemic status, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Methods: Retrospective study of all patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, treated at the Hospital Militar Dr. Mario Muñoz Monroy _until June/2020. Demographic variables, evolution of symptoms, hospital stay, personal pathological history, humoral parameters on admission, complications and use of medications were collected. Three groups were created: diabetic (n = 16), hyperglycemic (fasting blood glucose ≥ 7.8 mmol/L; n = 10) and normo glycemic (n = 219). Chi-square and Kruskal-Wallis H test were used for comparisons between groups. A 95 percent confidence interval was used. Results: Diabetic and hyperglycemic patients had a higher proportion of symptoms on admission, arterial hypertension, ischemic heart disease, chronic renal insufficiency, other antecedents, complications, mortality, and use of steroids and Jusvinza. In addition, they had lower values of hematocrit and lymphocytes, and higher values of neutrophils, platelets, creatinine, aspartate amino transferase, glutamyl transpeptidase, alkaline phosphatase and lactic dehydrogenase. Conclusions: Both diabetes and hyperglycemia predisposed to more severe clinical forms of COVID-19, with worse humoral parameters, evolution and higher mortality. Steroids and Jusvinza were used more frequently in these patients(AU)

ABSTRACT

OBJETIVO: Identificar na produção científica a ocorrência de alterações metabólicas no pós-operatório de cirurgias eletivas e sua relação com o tempo de jejum no pré-operatório. MÉTODO: Revisão integrativa, realizada de junho a julho de 2020 nas bases de dados LILACS, MEDLINE, CINAHL, COCHRANE, SCOPUS e EMBASE. Foram selecionados artigos de 2015 a 2020. Para a análise dos níveis de evidência seguiu-se a categorização de Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. RESULTADOS: Foram selecionados 10 artigos científicos. As alterações metabólicas encontradas foram hiperglicemia, elevação dos níveis séricos de IL-6, cortisol e valina, aumento da resistência insulínica, queda dos níveis plasmáticos de ácido glutâmico e elevação dos níveis de IGF-1 com a redução de IGFBP-3. A abreviação do tempo de jejum minimiza o estresse orgânico ao paciente, com a redução das alterações metabólicas, tempo de internação e morbidade. CONCLUSÃO: O tempo de jejum pré-operatório superior a oito horas está relacionado a ocorrência de alterações metabólicas no pós-operatório. As cirurgias de grande porte apresentam as maiores alterações metabólicas.


OBJECTIVE: To identify in the scientific production the occurrence of metabolic changes in the postoperative period of elective surgeries and their relation with preoperative fasting time. METHOD: An integrative review carried out from June to July 2020 in the LILACS, MEDLINE, CINAHL, COCHRANE, SCOPUS, and EMBASE databases. Articles from 2015 to 2020 were selected. For the analysis of the evidence levels, the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine categorization was followed. RESULTS: A total of 10 scientific articles were selected. The metabolic changes found were hyperglycemia, elevated serum levels of IL-6, cortisol, and valine, increased insulin resistance, decreased glutamic acid plasma levels, and increased IGF-1 levels with a reduction of IGFBP-3. Shortening the fasting time minimizes the patient's organic stress, with a reduction of metabolic changes, hospitalization time and morbidity. CONCLUSION: Preoperative fasting time longer than eight hours is related to metabolic changes in the postoperative period. Major surgeries present the greatest metabolic changes.


OBJETIVO: Identificar en la producción científica la existencia de cambios metabólicos en el postoperatorio de cirugías electivas y su relación con el tiempo de ayuno en el período preoperatorio. MÉTODO: Revisión integradora, realizada de junio a julio de 2020 de las bases de datos LILACS, MEDLINE, CINAHL, COCHRANE, SCOPUS y EMBASE. Se seleccionaron artículos de 2015 a 2020. Para el análisis de los niveles de evidencia se siguió la categorización del Oxford Center for Evidence-Based Medicine. RESULTADOS: Se seleccionaron 10 artículos científicos. Las alteraciones metabólicas encontradas fueron hiperglucemia, niveles séricos elevados de IL-6, cortisol y valina, aumento de la resistencia a la insulina, reducción de los niveles plasmáticos de ácido glutámico y aumento de los niveles de IGF-1 con disminución de IGFBP-3. La disminución del tiempo de ayuno minimiza el estrés orgánico del paciente, con una reducción de los cambios metabólicos, la duración de la estancia hospitalaria y la morbilidad. CONCLUSIÓN: Existe una relación entre un tiempo de ayuno preoperatorio mayor a ocho horas y la presencia de cambios metabólicos en el postoperatorio. Las cirugías mayores muestran los mayores cambios metabólicos.

ABSTRACT

This study was designed to determine adequate levels for sodium butyrate inclusion in pre-hatching and pre-starter feed in order to minimize the negative effects of post-hatch delayed placement on broiler chicks. Newly-hatched chicks were allotted in a completely randomized design, with five treatments, each comprising five replicates of ten birds each. Five dietetic levels of sodium butyrate (control, 0.050, 0.075, 0.100 and 0.200%) were used in the pre-starter feed offered to the chicks in the transporting box and during the pre-starter phase. Performance, yolk sac retraction, plasma glucose concentration, weight and histomorphometry of the small intestine were evaluated after 24 hours of feed access and at 7 days of age. A metabolic trial was performed when the chicks were seven to ten days of age. Supplementation of 0.1% sodium butyrate increased the development of broiler chicks' intestinal villi at seven days of age but was not able to improve performance in the pre-starter phase. Supplementation with sodium butyrate in a diet offered in the transportation box does not improve broiler performance in the pre-starter phase. Supplementation of up to 0.16% is recommended, in order to improve the metabolizability of the ether extract for broilers at seven days of age.(AU)


Objetivou-se, com este estudo, encontrar níveis adequados de inclusão de butirato de sódio em ração pós-eclosão e pré-inicial, buscando minimizar os efeitos negativos do jejum de pintos de corte. Os animais foram distribuídos em delineamento inteiramente ao acaso, com cinco tratamentos e cinco repetições de 10 aves cada. Foram utilizadas cinco suplementações de butirato de sódio (controle; 0,05; 0,075; 0,100 e 0,200%) na ração pré-inicial, fornecidas aos pintos na caixa de transporte e durante a fase pré-inicial. Após 24 horas de acesso ao alimento e aos sete dias de idade, foram avaliados desempenho, retração do saco vitelino, concentração de glicose plasmática, peso e histomorfometria do intestino delgado. De sete a 10 dias de idade, realizou-se ensaio de metabolizabilidade. A suplementação de 0,10% de butirato de sódio aumentou o desenvolvimento das vilosidades intestinais dos pintos de corte aos sete dias de idade, mas não foi capaz de melhorar o desempenho na fase pré-inicial. A suplementação com butirato de sódio em dieta oferecida na caixa de transporte não melhora o desempenho dos frangos na fase pré-inicial. Recomenda-se suplementação de até 0,16%, a fim de melhorar a metabolizabilidade do extrato etéreo para frangos de corte aos sete dias de idade.(AU)

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of different periods of pre-slaughter fasting (F1: 2 to 24 hours and F2: 48 to 72 hours) on the counts of hygiene indicator microorganisms and the presence of Salmonella spp. in carcasses of bullfrogs. Two different stages of the slaughter process were analyzed: after bleeding (A) and after the final carcasses cleaning (B). Samples from each fasting period were analyzed to count hygiene indicator microorganisms (n=30) and Salmonella spp. (n=140). For aerobic mesophilic microorganisms, the variation in fasting periods caused a reduction of 0.69 log10 CFU / g (P<0.05) in F2 when compared to F1 at point B of the slaughter. Coliforms at 35º C and Escherichia coli showed no differences (P >0.05) between the fasting analyzed periods. Considering the presence of E. coli, it was observed that F2 resulted in a reduction of 30% (P<0.05) positivity on point B. For Salmonella spp., the results showed that F2 contributed to an 11.5% reduction in the presence of this bacteria at point B. (P<0.05). Therefore, it is concluded that 48 to 72 hours of pre-slaughter fasting resulted in a positive impact on the microbiological quality of bullfrog carcasses.(AU)


O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a influência de diferentes períodos de jejum pré-abate (F1: duas a 24 horas e F2: 48 a 72 horas) nas contagens de micro-organismos indicadores de higiene e na presença de Salmonella spp. em carcaças de rãs-touro. Foram analisadas duas etapas do processo de abate: após a sangria (A) e após a toalete final da carcaça (B). As amostras de cada período de jejum foram utilizadas para contagem de indicadores de higiene (n = 30) e Salmonella spp. (n = 140). Para aeróbios mesófilos, a variação no tempo de jejum causou uma redução de 0,69 log10 UFC/g (P<0,05) em F2 quando comparado a F1 na etapa B do abate. Os coliformes a 35ºC e Escherichia coli não apresentaram diferenças (P>0,05) entre os dois períodos de jejum analisados. Considerando a presença de E. coli, F2 resultou em uma redução de 30% (P<0,05) de positividade na etapa B. Para Salmonella spp., os resultados mostraram que F2 contribuiu para uma redução de 11,5% na presença desse micro-organismo na etapa B. Portanto, conclui-se que 48 a 72 horas de jejum pré-abate tiveram um impacto positivo na qualidade microbiológica das carcaças de rã-touro.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: La enfermedad cardiovascular (ECV) constituye la principal causa de mortalidad en mujeres; la preeclampsia (PE) y la diabetes mellitus gestacional (DMG) están asociadas a incremento en el riesgo de ECV. Objetivo: Evaluar el conocimiento de los médicos generales (MG) sobre complicaciones obstétricas asociadas a ECV. Métodos: Se envió a los MG un cuestionario electrónico anónimo basado en casos, diseñado para evaluar el entendimiento de la influencia de la historia obstétrica en el riesgo cardiovascular a largo plazo y el conocimiento general sobre riesgo de ECV. Resultados: La tasa de respuesta fue de 35 % (161/465). Los participantes reconocieron que la PE y la DMG son factores de riesgo para ECV (98 y 83 %, respectivamente) y reportaron las siguientes estrategias de tamizaje de ECV en mujeres con historial de PE y DMG: monitoreo de presión arterial (PE 100 %, DMG 46 %), cálculo de índice de masa corporal (PE 68 %, DMG 57 %), evaluación del perfil de lípidos (PE 71 %, DMG 57 %), hemoglobina glucosilada (PE 26 %, DMG 92 %) y glucosa en ayuno (PE 28 %, DMG 91 %). Conclusión: Las estrategias de tamizaje para identificar ECV en mujeres con antecedentes de PE y DMG reportadas por los MG fueron variables.


Abstract Introduction: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality in women; preeclampsia (PE) and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) are associated with an increased risk of CVD. Objective: To evaluate general practitioners (GP) knowledge about complicated pregnancies and their association with CVD. Methods: An anonymous case-based electronic questionnaire designed to assess the level of understanding on the influence of a history of pregnancy complications on long-term cardiovascular risk and general knowledge about CVD risk was sent to GPs. Results: The response rate was 35 % (161/465). The participants recognized that PE and GDM are risk factors for CVD (98 and 83 %, respectively), and reported the following CVD screening strategies in women with a history of PE and GDM: blood pressure monitoring (PE 100 %, GDM 46 %), body mass index calculation (PE 68 %, GDM 57 %), lipid profile evaluation (PE 71 %, GDM 57 %), glycated hemoglobin (PE 26 %, GDM 92 %), and fasting glucose (PE 28 %, GDM 91 %). Conclusion: GP-reported screening strategies to identify CVD in women with a history of PE and GDM were variable.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Investigar o jejum prolongado em pacientes que submeteram-se a procedimentos cirúrgicos abdominais e do trato gastrointestinal com uso de anestesia geral, e as possíveis complicações no pré, intra e pós-operatório. Método: um estudo exploratório-descritivo, com recorte transversal retrospectivo-documental e abordagem quali-quantitativa, realizado num Hospital Federal do Rio de Janeiro, com análise documental referente ao período de janeiro de 2013 a abril de 2018. Resultado: houve uma grande variação no tempo de jejum pré-operatório, 0,3% dos pacientes fizeram jejum até 8 horas e 11,3% até 12 horas, alguns casos chegaram a fazer mais de 24 horas de jejum. Conclusão: foi perceptível que dentre prontuários analisados, os pacientes permaneceram em jejum perioperatório muito superiores fora dos padrões de segurança estipulados, gerando intercorrências que causam desconforto ao paciente, prejudicam a reabilitação, aumentam o tempo de internação e oneram o sistema


Objective:To investigate prolonged fasting in patients who underwent abdominal and gastrointestinal surgical procedures with general anesthesia, and possible complications in the pre, intra and postoperative periods. Method: an exploratory-descriptive study, with retrospective-documental cross-section and qualitative-quantitative approach, performed at a Federal Hospital of Rio de Janeiro, with documentary analysis from January 2013 to April 2018. Result: there was a great variation in time of preoperative fasting, with 0.3% of patients fasted for up to 8 hours and 11.3% for up to 12 hours, some cases reaching more than 24 hours fasting. Conclusion: Patients were found to be in perioperative fasting far beyond the stipulated safety standards, generating complications that cause discomfort to the patient, impair rehabilitation, increase length of hospital stay, and burden the system
