The Effects on Offspring of Diabetes Mellitus Induced by Chemical Agents in Rats with Advanced Pregnancy

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.587
Pages: 
56-9
Synopsis: 
Diabetes is the most important cause of perinatal mortality, and a four- to eight-fold greater malformation rate is observed among babies of diabetic mothers than among the general population. Cardiac anomalies and central nervous system anomalies are the most common anomalies observed in babies of diabetic mothers.

ABSTRACT

Background: Gestational diabetes mellitus is an increasingly frequent metabolic disorder that is important for both baby and mother. New studies on the development and treatment of the disease are required.

Objective: To investigate the effects on offspring’s survival and the biochemical values of diabetes mellitus, induced by different doses of two chemical agents among 35 rats with advanced pregnancy.

Effect of Moderate Ethanol Administration on Biochemical Indices in Streptozotocin-diabetic Wistar Rats

Issue: 
Pages: 
3–9
Synopsis: 
Moderate ethanol administration did not affect fasting blood glugose and HbA1c, but altered the lipid profile of streptozotocin-diabetic rats. Moderate ethanol intake may further increase the risk of complications in diabetes.

 

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was designed to evaluate the effect of moderate ethanol administration on the biochemical indices in streptozotocin (STZ)-diabetic rats.

Potential Health Problems with the Use of Energy Drinks

Issue: 
Pages: 
1–2

INTRODUCTION

The use of energy drinks has significantly increased in the Caribbean and worldwide as aggressive marketing campaigns target adolescents and young adults. More than 30% of adolescents reported using energy drinks and surveys have revealed that energy drinks are consumed by 30% to 50% of adolescents and young adults (1, 2). In a study in college students, 51% of participants reported consuming greater than one energy drink each month (3).
