To be included in the review, either all participants in a study had to be of mainstream school age or a majority of participants had to be of mainstream school age. This meant that while most studies involved young people aged 6–16 years, one study (Piravej_2009) included some younger children (minimum 3 years old) and six studies included slightly older participants (MacKinnon_2014, Pryor_2016 (...) of anxiety for those with ASD varies widely (e.g., from 13% to 84%), the majority of studies suggest that a realistic estimate is between 40% and 50% (van Steensel, Bögels, & Perrin, ). The majority of studies undertaken exploring anxiety and ASD have focused on very young children, or older adolescents and adults. Fewer studies have been undertaken with school‐aged children, but those studies that have been conducted suggest a high co‐occurrence of anxiety in ASD populations of this age group (Ashburner

BSPED Interim Guideline for the Management of Children and Young People under the age of 18 years with Diabetic Ketoacidosis BSPED Interim Guideline for the Management of Children and Young People under the age of 18 years with Diabetic Ketoacidosis The previous guideline for the management of DKA has been revised by the BSPED special interest group in diabetic ketoacidosis following a series of meetings. The relatively limited evidence regarding the management of DKA has been reviewed. Where (...) young people aged 16-18 years are managed by adult medical teams because of local arrangements, it is considered appropriate for them to be managed using local adult guidelines that the teams are familiar with rather than using potentially unfamiliar paediatric guidelines. Where individuals aged 16-18 are managed by Paediatric teams the Paediatric guidelines should be followed. 2) The ISPAD definition for DKA with acidosis and a bicarbonate of 3.0 mmol per litre has been adopted.

Following recovery, caregivers are given appropriate nutritional training to avoid similar recurrences and instructed on the importance of sensory stimulation in children for continued emotional and physical development (Ashworth, ). SAM among children under 6 months of age is increasingly being associated with higher mortality than in older infants and children (WHO, ). The WHO guideline suggests that in infants who are under 6 (...) months of age with SAM should receive the same general medical care as infants with SAM who are 6 months of age or older with increased focus on establishing, or re‐establishing, effective exclusive breastfeeding by the mother or other caregiver (WHO, ).
