The Glycemic Index Laboratories located in Toronto, Canada, performed tests on four different sweeteners to demonstrate the postprandial (after consumption) blood glucose and insulin responses. The study consisted of 15 healthy subjects between the ages of 18 and 75. Blood glucose levels after the non-nutritive sweeteners were significantly lower compared to sucrose at 15, 30 and 45 minutes. Postprandial incremental serum insulin measurements after four different sweeteners balanced for sweetness. Self monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is very crucial for those diabetics who are on insulin or on certain oral anti-diabetic drugs which can cause hypoglycemia. It is easier for a diabetes specialist to adjust drugs or to adjust insulin dose if good SMBG record is maintained by the patient. Normally we check fasting and 2 hr post prandial blood sugar levels in lab for routine follow up. In practice I have seen several patients who had fasting and post prandial blood glucose lab tests in normal range but HbA1c levels below 7 is not achieved because they might have high blood sugars in other post meals which has got unnoticed.
To achieve best blood glycemic control it is important to control blood sugar levels within normal limits during entire day and not just fasting or post breakfast levels. In the above image of SMBG chart I have mentioned 7 point charting system where you can fill your blood glucometer readings which you take on several spots in an entire day. This seven point SMBG charting approximately covers entire day glucose fluctuations to some extent (ofcourse  not as accurate as CGMS). I have also mentioned a comment column in the above SMBG chart where you can note down change in food or change in insulin dose or any other changes that you have made which probably caused unusual readings like for example if Hypoglycemia occurs at before lunch reading and you have skipped breakfast or had very little snack at breakfast you can mentioned that.
You do not need to check daily all the 7 points, you can check any one or 2 points randomly depending upon your sugar control.
Monitoring of blood glucose at home in case of diabetic pregnancy or gestational diabetes is also important where frequent monitoring and SMBG charting of glucometer readings helps a lot to patient.
If you find that some of the post meal or pre meal readings are high or low, please consult your diabetologist with SMBG chart to adjust your medication or insulin dosage.
Grace Aldrovandi, Jane Lindsey, Denise Jacobson, Barbara Heckman, Amanda Zadzilka, Elizabeth Sheeran, Jack Moye, Peggy Borum, William A. Both total fat and limb fat are significantly lower in both HIV+ groups compared to HIV-negatives. The triglycerides were significantly higher in the No PI & the PI groups compared to HIV-negatives but were double in the PI group compared to the HIV-negatives (134 vs 67).
There were few glucose abnormalities in fasting glucose or 2-hour fasting levels in HIV positives suggesting those elevated insulin levels were helping to keep glucose under control.
Seeing as today is World Diabetes Day, I thought this would be the perfect time to share my latest adjustment to our diabetes care and organization. I previously posted a series of printables that I still use some of but have recently decided to simplify how my son and our family log is blood readings and insulin doses, medications and any notes or important information.
A great tip for anyone monitoring their child's blood levels is use a colour code to see patterns in blood sugar levels. On another note, when we were at our last clinic visit I mentioned that our insulin pens felt like they were breaking. We will be provided with an authorization token (please note: passwords are not shared with us) and will sync your accounts for you. We sought to create a screening tool with improved predictive value for pediatric severe sepsis (SS) and septic shock that can be incorporated into the electronic medical record and actively screen all patients arriving at a pediatric emergency department (ED). Despite basic and clinical research efforts, SS and septic shock mortality remain largely unchanged over the past 20+ years, ranging from 23 to 50% (8, 9). Presently, the diagnosis of SS (which will henceforth be understood to also include cases that progressed to septic shock) is highly dependent on the clinical acumen of the caregiver and thus potentially subject to error. Beginning with the recommended components of a SS screening tool and age-specific criteria for vital signs put forth by ICCPS, we empirically identified new vital sign thresholds and applied our tool refinement methodology to create an improved tool for detection of SS in terms of specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and median time from patient arrival to SS detection. Our study refined and tested an electronic screening tool for pediatric SS initially based on the ICCPS criteria. An important component of our screening tool is the identification of abnormal values for HR and RR in patients arriving at the pediatric ED.
The Screening Tool Refinement component of our study was approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, and the Vital Signs Standardization component was approved by the IRB at Eastern Virginia Medical School (Norfolk, VA, USA). The following data elements were obtained from the electronic triage vital signs for each ED patient: HR, RR, body temperature, and site of measurement, age, time between arrival and initial vital signs measurement, and reason for visit. For the Vital Signs Standardization group, age-dependent (using the age intervals adopted by ICCPS) means and upper thresholds of normal (calculated as means plus a specified number of standard deviations) for HR and RR were determined.
Univariate analyses were performed for each measure incorporated into the screening tool to assess the association of abnormal values of that measure with gold standard identified SS. Refinement of the tool was accomplished through virtual PDSA cycle iterations, with the goal of successively improving ROC values with minimal increase in the mean interval between patient arrival and tool firing for Gold Standard SS cases. To test whether the performance of our final tool was generalizable, we utilized a split-sample validation technique whereby the results from cases representing the Screening Tool Refinement group’s first month of patient arrivals were compared with cases representing the second month of arrivals. A summary of the vital signs data for the Vital Signs Standardization group is shown in Table 2.
Several measures incorporated into the original ICCPS based tool were found to have a very low incidence among Gold Standard SS cases or to have an association that was not statistically significant. A summary of the changes to the original ICCPS criteria leading to our final pediatric SS screening tool is given in Table 5.
As demonstrated in the chart below, Swerve is non-glycemic and does not raise blood glucose (blood sugar) levels. Glucose levels were also significantly lower after both Swerve products compared to high potency sweetener at 15 minutes. Results are expressed as Mean±SEM, and using ANOVA for main effects of time and test meal and the time?meal interaction.
Consult with your doctor, dietician or nutritionist to know if the recipe is appropriate for a diabetes diet.
To achieve best glycemic control it is essential to know how your daily blood glucose levels are fluctuating in entire day. There is bright chance of sugar excursions in the other post meal readings which gets unnoticed. Although the current CD4 counts were similar (640 in No PI group, 668 in PI group, and current RNAs are similar), nadir CD4 was lower in PI group (290 vs 387), the peak RNA was higher in PI group (156,000 vs 34,972), and more CDC stages B and C in PI group.
The difference between HIV-positives and negatives in total fat was 2 to 2.5 kgs and this was more or less evenly distributed between trunk and limb fat. Total chol, LDL, and non-HDL were all significantly higher in the PI group compared to the HIV-negatives but not in the No PI group compared to the HIV-negatives.
Fasting glucose was similar across the 3 groups although it was significantly lower among the PI group compared to HIV-negatives. Now he relies on blood tests and insulin injections at least 4 times a day just to stay alive.We are raising money to help fund Diabetes Research so one day there might be a cure.

Severe sepsis (SS) is defined as acute organ dysfunction (OD) in the presence of sepsis; the latter refers to the presence of a systemic infection, which can result from a bacterial, viral, or fungal source. To improve SS-related mortality, several organizations published evidence-based guidelines for the management of SS and septic shock (8, 10, 11).
Although the tool was refined using retrospective patient data, our goal is to create an automated, real-time electronic version of the tool that will be incorporated into the hospital electronic medical record (EMR) and will actively screen all patients arriving at the pediatric ED. The refinement process utilized a retrospective database containing demographic, episode of care, and clinical data for all pediatric patients who visited the ED of a large, metropolitan children’s hospital over a 2-month period. Previous attempts to establish age-specific ranges of normal and abnormal HR and RR, such as those suggested by ICCPS, employed consensus values based on small numbers of healthy, resting children and may not be appropriate for children presenting to an ED. The tool algorithm, which determined if and when a positive firing occurred in each case, was based on the published ICCPS criteria, which were modified slightly to accommodate the availability of data from the patients’ EMR.
A total of 480 cases met one or more of the above criteria and were selected for chart review.
Given that the tool was designed to be incorporated into an automated, electronic screening tool that would run in the background for all patients entering the pediatric ED, our ROC test denominator consisted of all ED patient arrivals, since the possibility of a false negative or false positive result exists for all patients screened by the tool. Similar sets of corrected means and upper thresholds were also derived on the basis of temperature corrections suggested by previous studies.
Additionally, the strengths of these associations at the time of the initial firing of the screening tool were compared with the respective associations looked at cumulatively throughout each patient’s hospital encounter.
Using AUC as the measure of overall tool performance, the significance of our tool refinement process was evaluated using a chi-square test of the paired comparison between the original ICCPS (2) based tool and our final, revised tool (26).
AUC was again selected as the measure of overall tool performance, and the difference in AUC for the two subsets was evaluated using an unpaired t-test (26). Applying these standards to redefine tachycardia and tachypnea, using the ICCPS criteria of >2 SD above the mean for each age group, resulted in markedly higher thresholds than those published by ICCPS. The results of univariate analyses of the associations of individual SIRS and OD metrics with physician identified Gold Standard SS cases are shown in Table 4. If the time?mean interaction was significant, then ANOVA was conducted for each time point using Tukey-Kramer method to adjust for multiple comparisons. There is a trend for longer ART use in PI group: average lifetime exposure is 10 yrs in PI group and 9 in No PI group.

But for the PI group trunk fat was not significantly different than the HIV-negatives and this was notable because the PI group had a lower overall BMI than the HIV-negatives.
HDL was significantly lower in the PI group but not in the No PI group, compared to HIV-negatives.
For total chol, LDL, and non-HDL cholesterols kids on PIs had 20-30% of values that were elevated.
Fasting insulin was significantly higher (about 40% higher) in the both HIV groups compared to the HIV-negative group. SS is a leading cause of multiple organ failure and mortality across intensive care units (1).
These guidelines provide a comprehensive bundle of recommended therapies for clinicians that if effectively implemented, could improve patient outcomes and reduce death. While effective SS screening tools have been created for adults (15) and a proposed set of consensus-derived guidelines for a pediatric SS screening tool was published by the International Consensus Conference on Pediatric Sepsis (ICCPS) (2, 16), a similar validated tool of high predictive value for children has yet to be developed.
The collected data spanned the entire hospital encounter of each patient, regardless of whether this involved only an ED visit or continued as an observation or inpatient admission to the hospital. A recent study (17) suggested that empirically derived upper thresholds of normal HR and RR in pediatric inpatient hospital settings are considerably higher than these previously used consensus values.
The criteria employed in this initial version of the tool are summarized in Figure 1 (2, 16, 18–20).
For each instance of chart review, the reviewing physician searched for evidence of SS, defined below as the presence of infection accompanied by systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and OD, and was blinded as to the tool’s independent assessment of the case. Ultimately, the choices of standards for abnormal HR and RR were based on each model’s plausibility and empirical ability to optimize the performance of the screening tool.
Moreover, over 20% of these SS cases had negative culture results for infectious organisms (bacteria, viruses, or fungi) in blood, CSF, or urine, and about 10% of the cases had negative respiratory culture results as well. The kids were studied between Jan 2004 and Aug 2005 to put the ART use in historical perspective. Of note, for lean body mass neither HIV+ group was significantly different from the HIV-negatives suggesting difference in weight and BMI between the HIV positives and negatives was due to differences in fat in the HIV-positives.
The p-values were based on unadjusted analyses but they also did the analyses with adjustments and p-values with asterisks remained significant after adjustment for Tanner, race CDC stage. In these spaces we put his blood reading from his metre and then what insulin dose he gets.
They come is cool colours now and the delivery of insulin, although it takes a little getting used to, is a lot smoother.
Age-specific normal and abnormal values for heart rate (HR) and respiratory rate (RR) were empirically derived from 143,603 children seen in a second pediatric ED over 3 years. These guidelines include several time-sensitive interventions, such as antibiotic administration and fluid resuscitation, emphasizing the importance of early recognition of shock and sepsis (12). Similarly, our study included an empirical analysis of initial ED triage vital signs from over 140,000 children in order to derive age-specific values for normal and abnormal HR and RR in a pediatric ED setting. For indeterminate cases, the final determination was made by joint physician review conducted by two physicians. We therefore added, as a secondary outcome, the percentage of cases that fired the SIRS component of the tool, which may be used to screen for the presence of sepsis in the absence of OD. For both the early and late measures of association, the statistical significance of each association was determined using an exact chi-square test.
This finding led us to redefine the tool’s criteria for a positive finding of SIRS from the original ICCPS definition (which required abnormal values for two SIRS components, one of which must be temperature, WBC count, or neutrophil percent banding) to a more restrictive definition that additionally requires the second abnormal SIRS component to be either HR or RR.
By design they had equal representation across three groups of Tanner strata (Tanner 1, Tanner 2-3, Tanner 4-5). There were no significant differences in 120 minute glucose and insulin testing results between HIV negatives and positives. If you use Humapens instead of syringes for insulin and you haven't replaced them in a few years ask your diabetes team about these!
Between 20,000 and 40,000 US children develop septic shock annually, and its incidence is rising (6, 7).
The resulting redefinition of age-specific abnormal vital sign values for pediatric ED patients was an essential precursor in the subsequent refinement process that sought to create a screening tool with substantially improved performance. Additionally, we included as a secondary outcome the median time from patient arrival to tool firing (in cases where firing occurred), which acts as a balancing measure for the purpose of weighting tool accuracy against the need for early identification of SS. In a large majority of Gold Standard SS cases, the patient did not arrive at the ED in a condition of SS but rather progressed to that condition during the course of the hospital stay. In terms of tool performance, this redefinition allowed us to markedly improve overall specificity without any loss in sensitivity.
Again p-values here were calculated unadjusted but after adjustment for Tanner, race and CDC stage the differences between HIV negatives and positives regarding insulin were no longer significant suggesting other factors are playing major role in elevated insulin values. We started doing this about four years ago as he was part of a study at Sick Kids and it was not only required but turned out to be good practice.
Moreover, detection of SS in children is often more difficult at least in part because of their greater ability to compensate during early stages of septic shock (14). EFV was more widely used in No PI group (35% vs 10%) and 55% in the No Pi group were on other ART.
The final tool incorporated age-specific thresholds for abnormal HR and RR and employed a linear temperature correction for each category. False positive systemic inflammatory response syndrome identifications were nearly sixfold lower. Other changes would also occur as consequence of circadian rhythm, caused by cortisol fluctuations (Wright et al.
Some parameter ranges were similar to those obtained in amphibians, birds or mammals; others were very different. Both postprandial and circadian effects were excluded from the present study design due to previous fast and basal condition of samples, and also because blood extraction was carried out in uniform morning hours. These parameters are useful to evaluate sanitary, metabolic and nutritional state on captive bullfrogs. Scarce regulation mechanisms and higher tolerance to hemodilution and hemoconcentration, would cause a great oscillation of blood values in frogs (Goldstein 1982).

Specimens present in Argentina come from genetic lines imported from Brazil, and they are adapted to the tropical climate (Roman 1994). There are more than 200 bullfrog hatcheries in Argentina which produce meat marketed at a high price (Carnevia 1995). The bullfrog is characterized by its size; in captivity it can reach 300 g liveweight after 12 months. Since aging causes a decrease in the food conversion index, frogs are sacrificed when they are 6-7 months old and weigh 170-180 g (Lima and Agostinho 1992). This frog is generally fed with balanced pellets which are similar to those elaborated for fish as its true nutritional requirements are still unknown (Carnevia 1995). Nevertheless, the climate of this area is mainly warm and it favors hatcheries to respond the main market demand, that is, the continuity of production along the year (Roman 1994). Indoor captivity is the system chosen to rear this animal as escapes would be dangerous to the ecosystem. When it settles in any lagoon, the original aquatic fauna could rapidly become extinct due to the high food consumption (Lima and Agostinho 1992) of this species in which cannibalism would not be unusual (Longo 1985). Coccidia, as Babesiosoma stableri, would be located inside erythrocytes; Lankesterella minima would also parasite tad-poles and adult frog RBC (Desser et al. Hematocrit would decrease in anemias, and it would increase in dehydration and postprandial stage.
Hematocrit and hemoglobin would diminish as a consequence of alimentary deficiencies and prolonged fast (Singh 1978). Erythrocytes indicators in the nutritional state panel show a decrease owing to insufficient protein, vitamins B12, E, niacin and folic acid intake (Kolb 1987). 1998), as well as eicosanoids (Herman and Luczy 1999) and natriuretc peptides synthesis increase (Uchiyama et al. Appropriate erythropoiesis would require a continuous and balanced affluence of minerals such as Fe, Cu, Co and Se; nutritional lacks would also provoke hematocrit and hemoglobin decrease (Jain 1993). 1998) have active participation in acclimatization mechanisms and corporal fluid retention in R. However, this ratio was similar to those published on carnivorous and monogastric herbivores (58-64%, Coppo 2001; 60-75%, Kolb 1987, Coles 1989, and 60-77%, Jain 1993). Samples from 90 frogs (9-21 months old, 50-350 g liveweight, 50% each sex), were taken in each breeding place.
Thirty six per cent of the samples was taken during winter time, and 64% during the remaining seasons. The 32 remaining animals were reared on an extensive system (semi-captivity), in a closed lagoon where frogs selected exclusively "natural" food.
Amphibian leukocytes may possess properties different to those of mammals, because temperature would greatly affect the cellular inflammatory response (Dias and Catao-Dias 1989). The sample was a venose and arterial blood mixture, since frogs, with their anatomical characteristic, possess a unique ventricle (Goldstein 1982).
There was a previous blood hemolysis and centrifugation to eliminate erythrocyte nuclei, and hemoglobin was later evaluated by photocolorimetry (Drabkin technique, using Wiener Lab reagents).

The obtained bleeding time (341 s = 5.7 min) was similar to those published on human beings and domestic mammals (2-5 min, Kaneko 1989, Coles 1989, Coppo 2001). Red blood cells (RBC) concentration was determined by means of Neubauer hemocytometer microscopic count using Biopur diluters, and the packed cell volume (PCV, hematocrit) was measured by capillary centrifugation (12 000 g, 5 min). White blood cells (WBC) concentration was obtained from stained smear count (Giemsa), considering corrections according to PCV value. Erythrocyte indices such as mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and MCH concentration (MCHC), were obtained by conventional calculation. In coagulative anomalies is also important to determine the plasma fibrinogen concentration, to discard eventual hypo-, dis-, and a-fibrinogenemias provoked by hemorrhagic diathesis, hepatopathies, and malnutrition (Kaneko 1989, Pesce and Kaplan 1990).
Fibrinogen was calculated by the difference between plasma and serum proteins (Coles 1989), using an Erma-D refractometer. Amphibian thrombocytes would provide the necessary factors to form thromboplastin, which would transform fibrinogen into fibrin (Eckert 1992, Curtis and Barnes 2001). Urinalysis (density, pH, sediment, and chemical composition) was carried out by conventional laboratory techniques (Coppo 2001). Sodium and potassium were evaluated using Biopur reagents, in a Metrolab 305-D flame photometer.
The separation of proteins (albumin and alpha, beta and gamma globulins, on cellulose acetate) and lipoproteins (alpha and beta, on agarose gel) was carried out by electrophoresis (Pesce and Kaplan 1990).
Parametric descriptive statistics included measures of central tendency (arithmetic mean, x), dispersion (standard deviation, SD) and ranges. The extremely low density obtained confirms that the urine of this frog is significantly hyposmotic. Recent studies demonstrate that urinary vesical wall has the ability to regulate its water permeability (Candia et al. Confidence intervals were adjusted around arithmetic means, but individual ranges were wide. Protection against water loss is mainly based on the oliguria: urine will concentrate until it is isosmotic in relation to plasma. No amphibian can produce urine which could be hyperosmotic in relation to blood (Wilson 1989). Urine concentration mechanisms based on solutes resorption (until they are hypertonic to plasma), are characteristic of mammals, not amphibian. It is acid (up to 5) on carnivores, and alkaline on herbivores (up to 8.4) (Kaneko 1989, Coles 1989). Urinary pH would be from 5-8 on birds, diminishing up to 4.7 in aquatic species when they are submerged (Coles 1989). Glucose tubular resorption would be total in this species, because its presence in urine was not verified in any of the cases; glucosuria is abnormal in all domestic animals (Coles 1989, Kolb 1989).
Urobilinogen found in the urine of the studied frogs would be normal, because it is the hemoglobin metabolism terminal product; it is habitually present in urine of both carnivorous and herbivores species (Coppo 2001). Germs and cylinders presence is abnormal on mammalsA’ urine, but the existence of epithelial (genital and urinary) cells is usual, as well as some leukocytes, such as those found in frogs. The presence of abundant phosphate, carbonate and urate crystals reported respectively in carnivores, herbivores and birds (Coles 1989), contrasts with the absence of crystals in the urine of these frogs.
Plasma proteins intervene in acid-base balance, immunity, coagulation, colloid-osmotic pressure, and blood viscosity; they also transport hormones, vitamins, lipids, bilirubin, calcium, zinc, iron and copper (Kolb 1987, Kaneko 1989).
Albumins are excellent indicators of protein biosynthesis; they also operate as nutritional reserve of amino acids, which would be habitually exchanged between plasma and tissues, mainly in skeletal muscles (Coppo 2001). Proteinogram is of clinical interest because it facilitates the diagnosis towards alterations such as alimentary lacks, malabsorption, hepatopathies, inflammations, and renal, coagulative, and immunologic dysfunctions (Coles 1989, Pesce and Kaplan 1990, Coppo 2001). Uric acid is the excretion residue of nucleic acids (mammals), and proteins (birds) (Kolb 1987, Coppo 2001). Environment salinity increase would cause urea retention because it increases the urea hepatic synthesis and decreases the urea renal excretion. This fact could be proved in Rana cancrivora specimens exposed to fresh water versus sea water. This clearly indicates that frogs utilize urea to maintain their hyperosmolarity with the environment (Wilson 1989).
In hatcheries, several infections, intoxications, and parasitosis (myxosporea) affect frogs kidneys; in the same sense, certain metabolic illnesses cause renal obstruction with NPN retention (Lima and Agostinho 1992).
Canine, feline, equine, ruminant and some rodents would have "HDL pattern", characterized by plasma alpha lipoprotein pre-dominance.
When these animals are fed on fatty diets, cholesterol is linked by HDL rather than LDL, avoiding noxious effects due to protective action attributable to HDL. Human beings, pigs, rabbits, marmots, and several monkey species, would respond to the "LDL pattern", because when they consume fat, they increase their beta lipoprotein and they are exposed to a major atherogenic risk (Bauer 1997, Coppo 2001).
Bearing in mind that C-LDL level was higher than C-HDL level, and that alpha lipo-protein ratio was lower than beta lipoprotein ratio, frogs would join in the "LDL pattern" rather than the "HDL pattern". Cholesterol would rise in the initial phase of starvation (due to high fat mobilization), but in case of prolonged fast its plasma concentration tends to decrease (Kaneko 1989, Coles 1989, Pesce and Kaplan 1990, Coppo 2001).
Plasma glucose would be regulated through insulin, glucagon, adrenaline, cortisol, and thyroid hormones (Curtis and Barnes 2001). Physiologically, glucemia might vary by effects of age and physical exercise; pathologically it would alter in malnutrition, stress, and endocrine and hepatic failures (Coles 1989, Kaneko 1989, Coppo 2001). The kalemia reported on amphibians was approximately similar to that found in this trial on R.
Fresh water frogs are hyperosmotic in its environment, that is the reason why they tend to incorporate water by the skin and decrease their corporal saline concentration (Goldstein 1982).
Homeostasis is achieved with abundant hypotonic urine and an increase in electrolytes tubular resorption and salt cutaneous absorption (Eckert 1992). Mineral nutritional deficiencies are frequent in frog hatcheries, especially related to calcium lack, which provokes osseous malformations (Lima and Agostinho 1992). The effect of anesthesia or the employment of another technique for the enzymatic assay could be the cause of such difference.
During normal bone growth in young animals, a large amount of ALP is in plasma; osteopathies also results in increased plasma ALP. Recently, GGT has been found to be liver specific and is used as an indicator of hepatobiliary disease. Increased plasma AST is associated with cell necrosis of the liver and skeletal or cardiac muscle, starvation and lack of vitamin E.
CHE is originated in liver, pancreas, intestinal mucosa and brain; decrease in CHE has been reported in liver failure, muscular dystrophy, chronic renal disease and organophosphate insecticide intoxication (Coles 1989, Kaneko 1989, Pesce and Kaplan 1990, Coppo 2001). In spite of the close phylogenic relationship between amphibians and birds, some parameters were quite different (RBC, hemoglobin, MCV, lymphocytes, creatinine, glucose, ALP, urinary density and sediment). Several frog blood values were similar to those found in human beings (ALT, GGT, bleeding and coagulation time), and both domestic monogastric (neutrophils, lymphocytes, LDL-C, Cl, LDH) and polygastric mammals (fibrinogen, AST).
