Yusuff, O, Owolabi F, Lawal-Bello A, Amjo O, Soyoye D, Kolawole B.  2016.  Type 2 DM risk evaluation in Nigerian undergraduates in Ile Ife: a comparison of the Finnish vs Indian risk scoring system, 2016/10/14. Abstract

Background & objectives: Type 2 diabetes is on the increase especially among young people around the world due to increase in obesity and sedentary life style. Many risks scoring system has been developed and validated worldwide. Most are simple and inexpensive.This research was to determine the applicability of these scoring systems in our environment and to compare the sensitivity of the Finnish versus the Indian scoring system in OAU undergraduates at Ile-Ife.
Methods: Hundred and eighty undergraduate students of OAU were recruited, the two questionnaires were administered which incorporated simple parameters such as age, abdominal obesity, BMI, physical activity, family history of DM, consumption of fruits and vegetable.
Results: 73.3% had low risk while 26.7% had moderate risk, 0% had high risk using the IDRS. While FINDRISC had 87.2% with low risk, 12.2% slightly elevated risk and 0.6%with moderate risk. The IDRS was more sensitive in detecting those at risk compared to the FINDRISC.
Conclusions: Most of the respondents had low risk of developing type 2 DM, It is important to educate them on prevention of type 2 DM. A Nigerian DM risk score should be developed.
Keywords: T2DM, India Diabetes Risk Score (IDRS), Finnish Diabetes risk score (FINDRISC), Prevention.

Neurology. 94(10) Abstract

ObjectiveTo characterize risk factors for spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH) occurrence and severity among West Africans.MethodsThe Stroke Investigative Research and Educational Network (SIREN) study is a multicenter case-control study involving 15 sites in Ghana and Nigeria. Patients were adults ≥18 years old with CT-confirmed sICH with age-, sex-, and ethnicity-matched stroke-free community controls. Standard instruments were used to assess vascular, lifestyle, and psychosocial factors. Factors associated with sICH and its severity were assessed using conditional logistic regression to estimate odds ratios (ORs) and population-attributable risks (PARs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for factors.ResultsOf 2,944 adjudicated stroke cases, 854 were intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Mean age of patients with ICH was 54.7 ± 13.9 years, with a male preponderance (63.1%), and 77.3% were nonlobar. Etiologic subtypes of sICH included hypertension (80.9%), structural vascular anomalies (4.0%), cerebral amyloid angiopathy (0.7%), systemic illnesses (0.5%), medication-related (0.4%), and undetermined (13.7%). Eight factors independently associated with sICH occurrence by decreasing order of PAR with their adjusted OR (95% CI) were hypertension, 66.63 (20.78-213.72); dyslipidemia, 2.95 (1.84-4.74); meat consumption, 1.55 (1.01-2.38); family history of CVD, 2.22 (1.41-3.50); nonconsumption of green vegetables, 3.61 (2.07-6.31); diabetes mellitus, 2.11 (1.29-3.46); stress, 1.68 (1.03-2.77); and current tobacco use, 14.27 (2.09-97.47). Factors associated with severe sICH using an NIH Stroke Scale score >15 with adjusted OR (95% CI) were nonconsumption of leafy green vegetables, 2.03 (1.43-2.88); systolic blood pressure for each mm Hg rise, 1.01 (1.00-1.01); presence of midline shift, 1.54 (1.11-2.13); lobar ICH, 1.72 (1.16-2.55); and supratentorial bleeds, 2.17 (1.06-4.46).ConclusionsPopulation-level control of the dominant factors will substantially mitigate the burden of sICH in West Africa.

Abidoye, I, Ayoola O, Idowu B, Aderibigbe A, Loto O.  2017.  Uterine artery Doppler velocimetry in hypertensive disorder of pregnancy in Nigeria, 2017/12/29. 17 Abstract

Aim of the study: To evaluate the value of uterine artery Doppler indices and waveformpattern in predicting fetuses at risk for intrauterine growth restriction in hypertensive
disorders of pregnancy. Materials and methods: This was a prospective cross-sectional
study including 80 pregnant subjects with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and two
control groups. Uterine artery Doppler sonography was performed in all study participants.
Uterine artery Doppler indices across the groups were compared using the analysis
of variance (ANOVA) while the presence of prediastolic notch was analyzed with the Chi
Square test. Results: For the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy group, resistivity index
> 0.66 had a sensitivity of 50.0%, specificity of 69.1% and a positive predictive value of
22.2% for predicting intrauterine growth restriction. The odds ratio was 2.2 with a 95%
confidence interval of 0.6–7.8. The presence of prediastolic notching had a sensitivity of
100.0%, specificity of 96.0% and a positive predictive value of 80.0% for predicting intrauterine
growth restriction. The odds ratio was 22.7 with a 95% confidence interval of
7.5–68.5. Conclusion: Uterine artery Doppler sonography is useful for predicting fetuses
at risk for intrauterine growth restriction in hypertensive disorder of pregnancy. Prediastolic
notching is more sensitive and more specific than uterine artery resistivity index in
predicting fetuses at risk of intrauterine growth restriction in established hypertensive
disorder of pregnancy.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the living conditions of rural based people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and their clinical presentations DESIGN: descriptive cross-sectional study, SETTING: University College Hospital, Ibadan. SUBJECTS: PLWHA on anti-retroviral therapy. RESULTS: One hundred and fifty PLWHA participated. The mean age of the respondents was 28.7 +/- 8.9 years. Majority of the respondents visited had advanced disease (97%), were poor (75%) and presented with opportunistic infections such as oral candidiasis (92%), chronic diarrhoea (70%) and pulmonary tuberculosis (46%). Majority were treated for malaria (72%) and anaemia (61%). All respondents lived in homes predisposed to these opportunistic infections. They drink unsafe water and had poor disposal of their domestic wastes. CONCLUSION: PLWHA visited lived in homes that predispose them to various opportunistic infections. Improved living conditions and economic empowerment will improve the health conditions of PLWHA.
