Background: Children with type 1 diabetes should be encouraged to participate in physical activity because exercise can benefit insulin sensitivity and improve known risk factors for atherosclerosis. Methods: Physical activity patterns of 127 children and adolescents with stable type 1 diabetes were investigated by 24 hour continuous heart rate monitoring. The percentage of heart rate reserve was used to measure the amounts of physical activity at different intensities. The results were compared with normative data. Results: Diabetic preschoolchildren accumulated 192.7 (78.1), 39.1 (24.3), and 21.3 (9.4) minutes/day (mean (SD)) of light, moderate, and vigorous physical activity, respectively. At the same activity levels, diabetic schoolchildren accumulated 168.9 (76.7), 37.9 (15.9), and 19.0 (14.8) minutes/day, and diabetic teenagers accumulated 166.3 (67.5), 45.6 (26.9), and 25.2 (15.3) minutes/day. Diabetic schoolchildren were significantly more active than healthy peers when considering moderate activity; diabetic teenagers were significantly more active when considering moderate and vigorous activity. There was a negative correlation between the most recent glycated haemoglobin and the time spent in light activities in schoolchildren, and a negative correlation between mean glycated haemoglobin for one year and time spent in light and moderate activities in schoolchildren. Conclusion: The majority of our diabetic patients meet the classical paediatric guidelines for physical activity and compare favourably with their healthy peers. [less ▲]

L'adolescent diabétique confronte les "soignants" à quelques aspects spécifiques, tant au moment du diagnostic que lors du suivi. L'existence de diabète de type 2 ne doit pas être méconnue, étant donné la fréquence croissante de celui-ci en relation avec la progression de l'obésité chez les sujets jeunes. Lors de l'éducation initiale, la place des parents doit être prise en compte et réfléchie, tout en créant un espace propre pour l'adolescent. Dans le suivi, toutes les dimensions du processus adolescentaire seront prises en considération en plus du diabète. Ceci implique, notamment, les comportements exploratoires ou à risques, les sentiments de marginalisation, voire la révolte, et les difficultés de prendre en compte le risque de complications à long terme. Une attention particulière sera portée sur la période de transition vers une consultation pour adultes. [less ▲]

To formally document the presence of the bacillus of Koch in meninges still remains difficult and depends on many variables. We report two cases where the diagnosis proved difficult. The presentation of tuberculous meningitis can take several aspects. Mantoux reaction is frequently negative. The BK cultures, which demonstrate the diagnosis, depend on the volume of CSF and on the importance of BK dissemination. It, unfortunately, remains difficult to make the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis even though this pathology can have extremely deleterious consequences. [less ▲]
