Jin Park Su , Bae Ahn Moon , Suh Byung-Kyu

Background: Children and adolescents with chronic disease are at risk of developing bone fragility. In particular, low bone mineral density (BMD) is increasingly recognized in pediatric patients with glucocorticoid treated rheumatic disease. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics of children and adolescents with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and to analyze the factors associated with a lower BMD in these patients.<p cl...

Children with diabetes, and particularly those with obesity, have poor glycemic control. They are thus at higher risk of early microvascular complications. Renal tubulointerstitial markers are integral to evaluating diabetic nephropathy. Various biomarkers have been proposed, but their role in the obese pediatric population is uncertain. We investigated renal injury markers in children with diabetes, according to obesity, and determined their role as early predictors of diabet...
