The association between glycated albumin and HbA1c in pediatric acute leukemia patients

Yeun Sim Soo , Bae Ahn Moon , Suh Byung-Kyu

Introduction: Traditionally, HbA1c has been used as a preferred glycemic index in diabetes patients. However, as many acute leukemia patients often present with anemia and/or pancytopenia, HbA1c may not accurately represent blood glucose level in this group. Glycated albumin represents the average level of blood glucose in recent 2-3 weeks, independent of red blood cell life. In this study, we aim to evaluate the usefulness of glycated albumin as glycemic moni...

Gorham-Stout disease(GSD), also known as vanishing bone disease is an extremely rare skeletal disorder characterized by idiopathic intraosseous proliferation of lymphatic vascular structures resulting in progressive resorption of bone. Herein, we report a case of a 4-year-old girl with GSD treated with the combination treatment with bisphosphonate, sirolimus, and atenolol. A 4-year-old girl presented with prolonged back pain for 2 weeks. The thoracolumbar spine radiography rev...

Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A possible aid to detect hypoglycemia event during insulin challenge tests

Yeun Sim Soo , Jin Park Su , Bae Ahn Moon , Suh Byung-Kyu

Combined pituitary function test is a dynamic function test used to evaluate the anterior pituitary gland in patients suspected with hypopituitarism. The test comprises insulin challenge test where intravenous insulin injection in order to induce symptomatic hypoglycemia (serum blood glucose <40mg/dL). Insufficient increase in growth hormone and cortisol after the stimulation confirms the diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency and/or adrenal function insufficiency. However,...
