Monitoring HIV-infected Patients with Diabetes: Hemoglobin A1c, Fructosamine, or Glucose? - Clinical medicine insights. Endocrinology and diabetes
Published studies report inappropriately low hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) values that underestimate glycemia in HIV patients.We reviewed the charts of all HIV patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) at our clinic. Fifty-nine patients had HbA1c data, of whom 26 patients also had fructosamine data. We compared the most recent HbA1c to finger-stick (FS) glucose averaged over three months, and fructosamine to FS averaged over six weeks. Predicted average glucose (pAG) was calculated as reported by Nathan et al: pAG (mg/dL) = 28.7 × A1C% - 46.7. Data were analyzed using the Statistical Analysis System (SAS) and Kruskal-Wallis test.HbA1c values underestimated (UE) actual average glucose (aAG) in 19% of these patients and overestimated (OE) aAG in 27%. HbA1c estimated aAG within the established range in only 54% of the patients. There were no statistical differences in the types of HIV medication used in patients with UE, OE, or accurately estimated (AE) glycemia. A Spearman correlation coefficient between HbA1c and aAG was r = 0.53 (P < 0.0001). Correlation between fructosamine and aAG was r = 0.47 (P = 0.016).The correlations between HbA1c and aAG and between fructosamine and aAG were weaker than expected, and fructosamine was not more accurate than HbA1c.
Rectal administration of propylthiouracil in suppository form in patients with thyrotoxicosis and critical illness: case report and review of literature. - Endocrine practice : official journal of the American College of Endocrinology and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists
To report the successful management of thyrotoxicosis in a seriously ill 47-year-old man with a perforated gastric ulcer in whom oral intake was contraindicated.Our patient was treated with 400 mg of propylthiouracil (PTU) every 6 hours in the form of specially prepared suppositories for rectal administration, together with intravenously infused esmolol.We were able to demonstrate substantial absorption of PTU administered by means of rectal suppositories. Serum levels of PTU were maintained within the high therapeutic range for 5 days until the patient was able to tolerate orally administered therapy. The patient improved clinically during this treatment.This case strongly supports the rectal administration of PTU in suppository form as an appropriate alternative route in any patient with thyrotoxicosis, including the critically ill patient, when oral administration is not possible.
