Background: To update the ongoing debate about the use of universal strict vs (local) national intrauterine growth charts, we compared the prevalence of small and large-for-gestational-age (SGA/LGA) infants according to international charts and national growth data.Methods: We classified singleton births from 33 to 42 weeks of gestation in 2016 and 2019 from Qatar (n = 92431), SGA (birthweight <10th percentil...

Prevalence of Obesity from birth to 3 years of age in infants born large for date (LGA): Infants with weight for age (WAZ) catch down vs those without catch down during the first year of life

Fawzia Alyafei , Ashraf Soliman , Saleha Abbsi , Fatima Alkhori , Nada Alaaraj , Shayma Ahmed , Noor Hamed , Hamdy Ali

Introduction: Infants whose weight is > the 90th percentile for gestational age are classified as large for gestational age (LGA). Catch-up and catch-down growth can be defined as an increase or decrease in WAZ by > 0.67 SD respectively during the infantile period. It was suggested that in LGA rapid catch-up and/or no catch-down during infancy may be associated with the development of overweight (OW) and obesity (OB) during childhood.<p class="abstex...

Two years of Postnatal linear and head growth of term Infants Born Large for Date (LGA): Those who had infantile Length Z score (LAZ) and/or head circumference Z score (HCZ) catch down vs those without catch down.

Alyafei Fawzia , Soliman Ashraf , Abbsi Saleha , Alkhori Fatima , Ali Hamdy , Alaaraj Nada , Hamed Noor , Ahmed Shayma

Introduction: Large for date (LGA) infants may have a higher tendency to become obese and tall. Catch-up and/or catch-down in linear growth, defined as an increase or decrease in length for age Z score (LAZ) by > 0.67 SD during the infantile period, may affect this tendency. Additionally, head circumference is well correlated with brain growth.Aim: We evaluated the prevalence of tall stature (LAZ > 1 and> 2) and...

Postnatal growth in Preterm infants as a function of their weight for gestational age (GA) (WAZ) at birth: Comparison between those who were born underweight (WAZ <-2) compared to those with normal weight (WAZ > -2)

Alyafei Fawzia , Soliman Ashraf , Alkhori Fatima , Abbso Saleha , AlYousef Doaa , Shaat Mona , Itani Maya , Alaaraj Nada

Introduction: Small size at birth is only a proxy for the pathological process of intrauterine growth restriction.Aim: To study the effect of different birth weights on postnatal growth.Method: We studied the linear growth of 59 infants who were born preterm (GA = 33.5 +/- 2.2 weeks) with birth weight >1.5 < 2.5 kg) for two years. They were classified at birth into two groups...

Thyroid Dysfunction in the First Year of Life in Infants with Down syndrome: Linear Growth Over 4 Years

Alaaraj Nada , Soliman Ashraf , Itani Maya , Mohamed Shayma , Khalil Ahmed , adel ashraf

Background: Down syndrome (DS) is associated with thyroid dysfunction including both congenital and acquired hypothyroidism (HT) However, data about thyroid function in infants < 1 year with DS is scarce.The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of different thyroid dysfunctions in a cohort of infants with DS (n = 47) (22 M, 25 F) and follow up their linear growth and weight gain for an average of 4 years.<p cla...

Background: In infants, less than 1-year JGCT is extremely rare, with very few reported cases in the literature.Case Report: This 9-month old girl, presented with a day history of bloody vaginal secretions, with an increase in breast size bilaterally 2 months before presentation and growth of fine hair in the genital area. She had no skin hyperpigmentation, no skeletal abnormalities, and no dysmorphic features. On examination, the girl had no dysmorphic ...

Defective Cortisol Secretion in Response to Spontaneous Hypoglycemia but Normal Cortisol Response to ACTH stimulation in neonates with Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia (HH).

Ahmed Shayma , Soliman Ashraf , Alyafie Fawzia , Alaaraj Nada , Hamed Noor , Farag Marwa ,

Introduction: Hyperinsulinaemic Hypoglycaemia (HH) is the most common cause of recurrent and persistent hypoglycemia in the neonatal period. Cortisol and GH play an important role as counterregulatory hormones during hypoglycemia. Both antagonize the peripheral effects of insulin and directly influence glucose metabolism.Patients and Methods: We studied cortisol and GH secretion in newborn infants with HH during spontaneous hypoglycemia....

Comparison between hybrid diabetes (HD) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) in children; Patient`s characteristics at diagnosis: a retrospective observational study.

Hamed Noor , Soliman Ashraf , Alyafei Fawzia , Elawwa Ahmed , Alaaraj Nada , Ahmed Shayma ,

The “Hybrid Diabetes (HD)” is a new term that emerged in the last few years to describe diabetes with combined features of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The etiology behind hybrid diabetes is not well understood, and clinical characteristics for these unique patients were not described before. Differentiating HD from other forms of diabetes will lead to a better understanding of the disease process and course, as well as knowing the most appropriate management plan to ...

Incidence of early neonatal hypoglycemia and some related risk factors in Qatar. A cohort study over two years (2018 and 2019)

Soliman Ashraf , Ali Hamdy , Alaaraj Nada , Alyafei Fawzia , Hamed Noor , Ahmed Shaymaa ,

Objective: The objective of this study is to determine the incidence of early neonatal hypoglycemia and to confirm potential risk factors.Study design: The study was conducted at a tertiary Medical Center in Qatar. between January 2018 and December 2019. First blood glucose concentrations of all infants admitted to the nursery were measured using a "point of care" analyzer (Accu-Chek). We recorded risk factors for hypoglycemia su...

Postnatal linear growth and weight gain in infants of non-diabetic mothers (INDM) who were born preterm or near term and had significant neonatal hypoglycemia.

Alaaraj Nada , Soliman Ashraf , Ahmed Shayma , Hamed Noor , Itani Maya , Al-Naimi Fatima ,

Preterm babies born to non-diabetic mothers (INDM) who experience significant hypoglycemia may have postnatal growth abnormalities. This study evaluated the growth pattern from birth to the age of 2 years of 40 INDM who were born at or near term with significant hypoglycemia. Anthropometric measures (z scores) from birth, 2,4.6,12,18 and 2 years were measured in 40 INDM who presented with significant neonatal hypoglycemia (plasma value less than 20-25 mg/dl (1.1-1.4 mmol/l) th...
