Graves Thyrotoxicosis and Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis Causality or Chance Alone?

Richmond Ronald Gomes

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 22, 2021

Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST) is a rare cerebrovascular condition accounting for 0.5-1% of all types of strokes in the general population and 12.5% of cases are considered to be idiopathic. Hypercoagulability, local bloodstream stasis, and vessel wall abnormalities may contribute to the development of this condition. The thyrotoxic phase of Graves’ disease is associated with venous thrombosis caused by hypercoagulability, which is in turn induced by increased levels of homocysteine a...

U.S. Survey Investigating Gaps between Patients and Specialists in the Treatment of Severe Hypoglycemia and Impressions of the Ease-of-Use of Liquid-Stable Glucagon for Subcutaneous Injection

James M. Meyer and Mary C. Devona

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 20, 2021

Severe hypoglycemia is an emergency condition where very low blood sugar may lead to confusion, seizure, unconsciousness, and if left untreated, death. It has been identified as a cause for recurrent morbidity in people with either Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) or Type 2 Diabetes (T2D); however, the understanding of signs and symptoms of Severe Hypoglycemia (SH), as well as when to use glucagon, tend to vary between patients, caregivers, and adult and pediatric endocrinologists (specialists). The purpos...

Is Oxidative Stress a Consequence of Hyperglycemia? Or is Hyperglycemia the Consequence of Oxidative Stress? Or are Both Caused by Insulin Resistance?

İhsan Boyacı, Türkan Yiğitbaşı and Handan Ankaralı

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: July 19, 2021

The oxidative status may not only be a cause of diabetes, but also a consequence of diabetes. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between hyperglycemia levels and oxidative status in patients with type 2 diabetes using Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC), Total Oxidative State (TOS) and Oxidative Stress İndex (OSI). In this study, 145 patients diagnosed with prediabetes (n = 28) and type 2 diabetes (n = 117) according to HbA1c and oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) levels were divided into five ...
