Studies implicate that increased body iron stores and subclinical hemochromatosis has been associated with the development of glucose intolerance, type 2 diabetes and its micro as well as macrovascular complications.</p> <p><strong>Material &amp; Methods: </strong>This study was carried out to examine and to observe for any relationship between serum ferritin with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Our study populations were included 163. Among them 81 type 2 diabetes patients as a case (M=49,F=32, mean 44.68 age in years)and 82 normal healthy individual as a control ( M=35, F=47 , mean 34.71 in years).</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Majority were healthy outpatients who had come for regular checkup and were matched with controls. Serum ferritin and FBS were estimated and other investigations. Results showed that although Serum ferritin was in the normal range value it was increased in type 2 diabetes patients than in controls and was statistically significant, we did get a positive correlation with duration of diabetes. It can be concluded that there were positive associations between serum ferritin and FBG, age, sex among study groups.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>In conclusion our study shows that there is significant correlation between increased serum ferritin in diabetes compared to individuals with normal blood sugars in this part and hyper ferritinemia may be one of the causes for development of insulin resistance before overt diabetes.</p> <p>Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 11, No. 1: Jan 2020, P 7-10</p> 2020-02-27T08:52:21+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.banglajol.info/index.php/AKMMCJ/article/view/45661 Fetomaternal Outcome of Eclamptic Patient in Secondary Health Care Level-3 years study 2020-10-25T13:20:11+00:00 Nazma Khalil authorinquiry@inasp.info Sharmin Abbasi authorinquiry@inasp.info Rehana parveen authorinquiry@inasp.info Rokeya Ferdousey authorinquiry@inasp.info <p><strong>Background: </strong>Eclampsia is defined as the development of seizures that cannot be attributed to other causes and /or unexplained coma during pregnancy or puerperium in a woman with pre-eclampsia.

To identify the factors contributing to develop CHD is therefore of paramount importance. It needs endless attention to address the riddle. This effort is to candle the light on sociodemographic &amp; other factors of CHD.</p> <p><strong>Methods &amp; Materials: </strong>This cross-sectional study was conducted in CMH Dhaka from September to December 2011 on 287 respondents. Data were collected by interview using semi-structured questionnaire. Data were checked, edited, coded, categorized, cleaned and analyzed using (SPSS version 20).</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The study disclosed that respondent's mean age was 39.40+9.42 years, 67.2% were male and 32.8% were female. It was founded that 34.14% were smoker. The prevalence rate of HTN and DM were 14.3% and 4.5% respectably. The mean BMI was 24.55 with 58.5% had normal weight and 41.5% were overweight, 18.8% had positive family history of suffering from CHD. among the respondents 88.5% has got at least one risk factor, 60% has got 5-10 risk factors, 13.6% got 6-10 risk factors, 14.3% got&gt;10 risk factors. Age was significantly associated with smoking (p&lt;.049), educational status (p&lt;.001) and blood pressure (p&lt;.001).

The latency period is in general inversely related to the gestational age at the time of PROM. At term, labor is desirable since infections become more likely with more prolong intervals between rupture and delivery. Neonatal complications and perinatal mortality and morbidity also associated with PROM.</p> <p><strong>Material and methods: </strong>This randomized clinical trial study was carried out in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Sir Salimuilah Medical College and Mitford Hospital Dhaka, during the period of January 2008 to September 2008.

After taking informed consent she was randomized in one of the two either groups according to the results of lottery. Fifty in Group I- Termination of the pregnancy (intervention group) by induction of labour and another 50 were in Group II- Expectant management for spontaneous delivery (expectant group). Randomization was 1:1 for intervention and expectant management. Proper history including demographic, past obstetric and medical history was taken, maternal temperature and Fetal heart rate was recorded. Antibiotics were given to all PROM women. The women of intervention group were induced by following ways -Women with riped cervix with oxytocin infusion and with unripe cervix, first underwent ripening by misoprostol followed by oxytocin infusion. Data was collected by standard questionnaire; results were compiled and relevant statistical calculation was done using computer-based software (SPSS).</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The mean age was 20-24 years were predominant in both groups.

Majority (80%) patients had time interval 1 to 12 hours between rupture membrane and onset of labour pain in group I. On the other hand 80% patients in group II had 12 to 24 hours time interval for onset of labour pain after rupture membrane.Normal vaginal delivery was higher in group I, whereas caesarean section (LSCS) was higher group II.

Cancer-related anemia adversely affects quality of life and is associated with reduced overall survival. Reasons for anemia in cancer patients are decreased production of RBCs resulting from nutritional deficiencies; insufficient production of RBCs because of the presence of chronic disease; Cancer promotes inflammatory cytokine production, which suppresses erythropoiesis and erythropoietin (EPO) production; bone marrow infiltration by the tumor or bone marrow suppression resulting from anticancer treatment such as surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy; and increased loss of RBCs caused by blood loss from the tumor, surgery, or hemolysis. Correction of anemia can be achieved by different methods.Treatment is aimed at increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, reducing fatigue, and improving the patient's overall quality of life.
