BACKGROUND: Privacy restrictions limit access to protected patient-derived health information for research purposes. Consequently, data anonymization is required to allow researchers data access for initial analysis before granting institutional review board approval. A system installed and activated at our institution enables synthetic data generation that mimics data from real electronic medical records, wherein only fictitious patients are listed. OBJECTIVE: This paper aimed to validate the r...

Modern lifestyle limits our exposure to sunlight, which photosynthesizes vitamin D in the skin, and the incidence of nutritional rickets has been resurging. Vitamin D is one of the oldest hormones; it is photosynthesized in all forms of life from the phytoplankton to mammals. A selective sweep of the promoter of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) happened as soon as Homo sapiens migrated out of Africa; it co-adapted with skin color genes to provide a fine-scale adaptation to latitudes and the levels o...

The insulin analogs detemir and glargine are the two basal insulins commonly used in hospitalized patients (1). Their slow-release reservoir is different—serum albumin for detemir and subcutaneous microcrystals for glargine (2,3). There is a common belief that detemir should be avoided in hypoalbuminemic patients because they have less predictable levels of free insulin, raising a concern for higher risk of hypoglycemia (4,5). Nevertheless, the guidelines recommend using either insulin with impa...
