Sleep disorders are strongly associated with childhood nocturnal enuresis (NE). In this study, we examined whether sleep disorders are present in children with NE, and whether NE is caused by sleeping disorders, or is simply comorbid.
We examined 14 children with monosymptomatic NE and 15 age‐matched controls. Sleep disorders were assessed for ≥5 days using contactless biomotion...
Impairment of thiol/disulfide homeostasis, as well as vitamin D deficiency, are responsible for the pathophysiology of many acute and chronic diseases. This study examined the relationship between thiol/disulfide homeostasis and vitamin D level and supplementation.
A total of 203 healthy children were included in the study. The participants were divided into four groups according...
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is caused by autoimmune destruction of islet β‐cells of the pancreas. There are overlapping phenotypes in a significant proportion of youth with type 1 and 2 diabetes. Thus, positive pancreatic autoantibodies are helpful to diagnose T1DM. Zinc transporter 8 antibody (ZnT8A) is a recently identified autoantibody in T1DM and no data on ZnT8A in the Thai population...
Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) is a respiratory disorder that results from inadequate or delayed clearance of fetal lung fluid following delivery. At present, supportive care is generally practiced for the treatment of TTN. In this study, we focused on inhaled beta‐agonists for the treatment of TTN, and the aim was to verify the efficacy and the safety of inhaled procaterol for...
Bronchial asthma may lead to pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular (RV) dysfunction, and cor pulmonale due to elevated afterload on the RV later in life. The aim of this study was to determine whether serum N‐terminal pro‐B‐type natriuretic peptide (NT‐proBNP) might serve as a biomarker for detecting subclinical RV dysfunction using echocardiography during the early stages of bronchial...
In pediatric patients, syncope commonly occurs as vasovagal syncope, or in epilepsy or orthostatic dysregulation. Cardiogenic syncope is rare but it is lethal, and needs to be promptly diagnosed and treated.
Methods and Results
We describe the cases of 11‐ and 15‐year‐old sisters with frequent syncope during exercise and emotional stress since the age of 10 and 12, respectively. There...
