Pathogenesis of Type 1 Diabetes Based on epidemiologic and genetic studies, it is well accepted that there is a strong genetic component for development of DM-1, although 90% of affected patients do not have a close relative with the disease.

Loci associated with the development of DM-1 are found within the MHC-HLA class II region.
NORMOCYTIC ANEMIA Normocytic anemias ( Figure 2 23 – 33 ) have a wide differential diagnosis. Although many normocytic anemias are secondary to chronic disease, including chronic kidney disease, it is important to exclude early nutritional deficiencies and hemolysis. A peripheral blood smear, reticulocyte count, and vitamin B12 and folate levels should be ordered. Many patients with vitamin B12 or folate deficiency have a normal MCV.
A large epidemiologic study28 found that obese women were significantly more likely to experience suicidal ideation and to make suicide attempts than their normal-weight counterparts. (Interestingly, obese men were less likely to report suicidal thoughts or behaviors than normal-weight men.) This study, however, did not take obesity severity into account. People with extreme obesity have been found to be 87% to 122% more likely to attempt suicide than people in the general population.29 Recently, Adams and colleagues25 examined mortality and causes of death over a mean of 7 years in 7,925 postoperative bariatric surgery patients and 7,925 non-patient controls who were matched for age, gender, and body mass index (BMI).

By this time it was being grown intensely elsewhere in the Southern Hemisphere , as well as in France and the United States .

In order to test whether the balloon or the secondary psychological effect caused weight loss, a double blind balloon versus sham procedure was devised with both groups receiving identical outpatient dietary advice (800 kcal/day).

The balloon was removed after three months and the patients were followed for a further three months.
