Clinical and laboratory findings and outcomes of classic organic acidurias in children from north-eastern Thailand: a 5-year retrospective study

fasting, high protein intake, injury or surgery can also provoke a catabolic crisis. Each catabolic crisis results in a worsening of psychomotor development; therefore, close monitoring of growth, nutritional and metabolic status is highly recommended to prevent decompensated catabolic crisis and psychomotor deterioration. Close monitoring of plasma amino acids is very necessary in long-term dietary management because the patients have higher risk of essential amino acid deficiency. In this study, one patient with MMA was deficient in several amino acids after excessive

Prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in Thai patients receiving various modalities of renal replacement therapy

skin changes compared with younger people despite a similar time of exposure to ultraviolet light [ 28 ], Furthermore, one study found that total sun exposure time and dietary vitamin D intake had no significant association with serum [25(OH)D] in patients receiving PD [ 10 ]. Another explanation for the low [25(OH)D] in patients receiving PD is that PD causes continuous loss of vitamin D and vitamin D binding protein together with albumin through the peritoneal effluent [ 29 , 30 ]. Pediatric patients receiving continuous cycling PD had a lower mean serum [25(OH

Higher prevalence of metabolic syndrome among male employees of a gas refinery than in their counterparts in nonindustrial environments

including dietary intake, physical activity, sleep pattern, and their hobbies [ 4 ]. An inappropriate lifestyle is one of the most important risk factors for MetS and CVD [ 5 , 6 ]. Air pollution is another risk factor that can increase the risk of metabolic disorders. Recent epidemiological and experimental studies have reported an association between increased level of air pollution with insulin resistance, weight gain, and obesity [ 7 , 8 , 9 ]. Air pollution is higher in some industrial work environments, including those of the gas and petrochemical industries
