Glycated Hemoglobin Screening Reveals Undiagnosed Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (T2D), formerly known as adult-onset diabetes, is a form of diabetes that is characterized by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin. Common symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, and unexplained weight loss. More...

Urine Osmolality Measurement Evaluated on Automated Analyzer

Urinalysis is a convenient and non‐invasive screening tool for use in both an outpatient and inpatient setting. Automated flow cytometry‐based urine analyzer is increasingly being used to identify and enumerate cells and particles in urine specimens. It measures electrical conductivity which could be transformed to osmolality. More...

Hypokalemia Is Associated With COVID-19 Severity

Early studies reported various electrolyte abnormalities at admission in patients who later presented the severe form of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Electrolyte imbalance may not only affect patient care, but could provide insights into the COVID-19 pathophysiology. More...

Ammonia Predicts Prognosis in Hepatitis B Virus‐Related Liver Failure

Acute‐on‐chronic liver failure (ACLF) is the rapid deterioration of liver function in chronic liver disease often associated with the development of serious complications such as hepatorenal syndrome and hepatic encephalopathy within a short period of time. More...

Hematological Parameters Evaluated for Cervicocranial Arterial Dissection Stroke

As artery detachment, artery dissection refers to the vascular disease in which blood flow enters the artery wall and causes dissection of vascular wall. Cervicocranial arterial dissection (CCAD) can lead to stenosis or occlusion of the lumen has become one of the most frequent causes for ischemic stroke in the young. More...

Complex ABO Glycan Phenotypes Predicted by Lectin Microarrays

Serological classification of individuals as A, B, O, or AB is a mainstay of blood banking. ABO blood groups or ABH antigens, in addition to other surface glycans, act as unique red blood cell (RBC) signatures and direct immune responses. ABO subgroups present as weakened, mixed field, or unexpected reactivity with serological reagents, but specific designations remain complex. More...

Novel Blood Test Predicts Psychotic Disorders Before They Emerge

Only around a quarter of young people who display mild, transitory psychotic symptoms at an early age ultimately go on to develop a serious psychotic disorder. Schizophrenia, for example, is generally not clinically diagnosed until a person reaches their twenties. More...
