Prevalence of celiac disease is increased in children with epilepsy -- Iranian Journal of Pediatrics Vol.24 No.3

Iranian Journal of Pediatrics vol.24 no.3 is being featured today. 

This issue includes "Prevalence of Celiac Disease in Turkish Children with Idiopathic Epilepsy" by Işikay et al. The study examines the prevalence of celiac disease in children with idiopathic epilepsy. For this study, 214 children with idiopathic epilepsy and 166 health children (the control group) were examined. It was found that over 55% of patients had generalized epilepsy and 45% (33 patients) had partial epilepsy. For the patients that had partial epilepsey, features were consistent with a diagnosis of childhood partial epilepsy with occipital paroxysms (CPEO). The study concluded that the prevalence of celiac disease is increased in children with epilepsy, but also noted that there is as high as 6% prevalence of celiac disease among children with CPEO.

This issue also includes "Prepregnancy Maternal Weight and Body Mass Index of Children with and without Congenital Heart Disease" by Ghaderian et al. This study examines the correlation between a mother being overweight or obese before and during pregnancy and congenital heart defects in their child. 164 infants with congenital heart defects and their mothers as well as 158 infants without congenital heart defects and their mothers (the control group) were evaluated between 2011 and 2012. All mothers were assessed for their age, height, weight and Body Mass Index. The results indicated that the age, weight and height for mothers in both the control group and mothers with infants with congenital heart defects did not differ significantly. The mothers in the control group did not have a significantly lower BMI than mothers with infants with congenital heart defects. The study concluded that there may not be a correlation between congenital heart defects in an infant and their mother being obese or overweight.

The BMI has become the generally accepted measurement for assessing weight and height. But that is all it takes into account. Regrettably it will not take into account variances in human types, bone proportions, pregnancy, muscle building, and muscle and fat and also a few other important info. So you can actually maintain wonderful shape, working out regularly, eating balanced and still have a superior BMI amount signaling you are fat! Here are BMI Calculator through which you can calculate your body mass index, body fat percentage although waist to height ratio,instantly.
