Correlation Between Exercise and Insulin Dose in a Camp for Pediatric Type 1 Patients

Intense exercise is a major challenge to the management of type 1 diabetes. The management is even more difficult, during a camp, probably due to increased hypoglycemia maybe from increase of intensity of physical activity. The investigators want to evaluate steps, energy expenditure, sleep time and glycemic control and insulin dosage, through use of a wrist accelerometer, in pediatric type 1 patients attending a camp. Finding a correlation between these parameters could be us...

cAMP Signaling and Muscle Adaptations

The role of cAMP signaling mediated by beta2-adrenergic stimulation with agonists has been well-studied in skeletal muscles of animals. Studies in humans are scant and the scope of the present study is thus to investigate the role of cAMP signaling by beta2-adrenergic stimulation for muscle adaptations in humans.

The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of an intensive group-based CIMT summer camp in which participants wear a removable cast on upper extremity function, occupational performance,...

Impact of a Diabetes Camp on Glycemic Control Among Children and Adolescents Living With Type 1 Diabetes in Cameroon

Therapeutic education is central to the management of diabetes, especially in children and adolescents. Camps represent an ideal environment for education. During camps, the campers receive both theoretical and practical information intended to improve their understanding and self-management of diabetes. The metabolic impact of diabetes camp is little known among children and adolescents living with type 1 diabetes in sub-Saharan Africa. The aimed of this study was to assess th...

The Effect of a Structured Weight-loss Programme on the Metabolic Profiles of Obese and Overweight Children

Aim: - The overall aims of this study to look at what changes are seen overweight and obese (very overweight) children, as they get thinner. - Specifically the investigators are interested in the chemicals and bacteria that children pass in their urine and stool because looking at how these change as it tells us about how their gut and other bodily systems are adapting. Hypothesis: Metabolic profiling is a useful and accurate tool for observing and...

Vitamin D and Immunity: Photosynthesis Versus Supplementation

The optimal way to restore serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D sufficiency is currently debatable. UV irradiation through sunshine exposure promotes endogenous vitamin D synthesis, although this can also be associated with a risk of UVR-induced skin cancer. Dietary supplements represent an alternative, which are increasingly being used in clinical trials to correct deficiency. However, it is unclear whether sunshine exposure and vitamin D supplementation induce comparable changes in immu...

Feasibility of the Camp Power Up Program on Children's Body Weight and Quality of Life

This study will evaluate the effects of a one week weight management summer camp on children's weight, quality of life, mood and feelings, self-esteem, weight management efficacy, enjoyment of physical activity, and body image.

Preventing Violence Against Children in Schools Study

To date, no interventions to prevent violence in refugee camp schools have ever been rigorously evaluated. The primary objective of this project is to test the effectiveness of the Empateach intervention to prevent physical violence from teachers to students in Nyarugusu Refugee Camp, Tanzania. Secondary objectives are to assess the impact of the Empateach intervention on student's depressive symptoms, experience of emotional violence and educational test scores. A two arm clus...

Vascular Responses to UV Exposure in Pregnancy

Season of birth influences pregnancy for reasons that remain unclear however the answer may lie in the amount of sunshine pregnant women are exposed to. Sunshine, or ultraviolet light (UV) exposure is already known to have benefits for health on heart disease, strokes and depression. In pregnancy, relationships between sunshine exposure are evident in birth weight, preterm birth and risk of blood pressure complications. Vitamin D, the UV generated hormone, was thought to be res...

These stickers can be scanned using a mobile phone ...

Chronic Beta2-adrenergic Stimulation and Muscle Hypertrophy

Studies in animals have shown that beta2-adrenoceptor activation with selective agonists regulates protein metabolism and muscle growth in skeletal and cardiac muscle tissue. These effects may be mediated by cAMP/PKA dependent activation of several downstream sites that modulate protein synthesis and breakdown. While the role of beta2-adrenoceptor signaling is well-described in animals, it is inadequately explored in humans. The purpose of the study is thus to investigate the e...

Pulmonary Tuberculosis and Vitamin D

Tuberculosis and vitamin D deficiency are important public health problems in India. Before the advent of effective antitubercular therapy, patients with tuberculosis were advised treatment and rest at sanatorium where sunshine was available in plenty. There have been reports associating vitamin D deficiency with tuberculosis in terms of incidence and beneficial response following addition of vitamin D to antitubercular therapy. Sputum AFB conversion rate is higher in patients...
