chi-square test for categorical data and an unpaired t test or Mann–Whitney U test for continuous data. Receiver operating characteristic curves were used to analyze the reasonable cutoff values of selected psychosocial indices for predicting poor glycemic control. Univariate logistic regression analysis was used to assess differences between the good control and poor control groups in various characteristics. P < 0.05 was considered significant in tests of statistical inference. Results Demographic and clinical characteristics We enrolled 58 patients

detecting sequential duplications or small deletions [ 13 ]. Whole-genome screening using a microarray technique for detecting any chromosomal rearrangements including subtelomeric aberrations is currently the best available first-tier diagnostic test for individuals with MR and dysmorphism [ 14 , 15 ]. However, this technique is not available at many diagnostic laboratories because it requires a substantial investment in equipment and resources. Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) is another method for subtelomeric screening, and has the advantage

sputum culture with >3+ of growth of one type of pathogenic organism (if not quantitative, then it must have moderate or heavy growth). Data analysis The incidence of ALI/ARDS is reported in percentages. Continuous data are presented as median with interquartile range (IQR) or mean (± SD). Categorical data are presented as numbers and percentages. Nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test or unpaired t test for continuous data and Fisher’s exact test for numbers of events were used for comparisons between patients with and without ALI.

Bhutan is facing a steady increase in the burden of diabetes and noncommunicable diseases [ 1 ]. The burden of diabetes has increased rapidly from 47 per 10,000 population in 2010 to 158 per 10,000 population in 2016 [ 1 , 2 ]. This is against a background of 87.3% of the urban population being exposed to at least 1 risk factor for noncommunicable diseases such as smoking, physical inactivity, inadequate consumption of fruits and vegetables, excess body weight, and concomitant hypertension [ 3 ]. The care for diabetes including insulin is provided free of
