To compare the prevalence of hypertension and diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients treated with an unmodified HM-3 lithotripter (USWL) and a second-generation modified HM-3 lithotripter (MSWL) 20 years ago at our Centre with that in the provincial population. It is caused when the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus gets into the bloodstream and produces toxins. Results: Concentrations of anti-Hsp60 were significantly higher in CHD patients than in controls. Most studies suggest that diabetes increases susceptibility to infection. We now report that fragments of p277 can affect diabetes but that optimal therapy requires the whole peptide. Discontinuation of the infusion was followed by a profound (8.4 L) diuresis and rapid onset of hypernatremia (serum sodium concentration increased from 132 to 157 mEq/L over 8 hrs). Double the number of people on insulin.
T-cells reactive to the p277 peptide of hsp60 were also observed. But diabetes causes high blood sugar levels which encourage
