Diabetes Back to School Wisdom, from a Texas School Nurse with Type 1

As it's Back to School season, we thought it would be valuable to hear some wisdom from a school nurse, on the front lines of helping take care of kids and teens with diabetes during school days. It's a tough job. So today we welcome fellow T1D Ca...

AbstractAims/hypothesisCardiovascular disease is the most common comorbidity in type 1 diabetes. However, current guidelines do not include routine assessment of myocardial function. We investigated whether echocardiography provides incremental prognostic information in individuals with type 1 diabetes without known heart disease.MethodsA prospective cohort of individuals with type 1 diabetes without known heart disease was recruited from the outpatient clinic. Follow-up was performed through Danish national registers. The association of echocardiography with major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) and the incremental p...

Conclusions/interpretationOur findings suggest that children who progress to type 1 diabetes have a unique metabolic profile, which is, however, altered with the appearance of islet autoantibodies. Our findings may assist with early prediction of the disease.

Conclusions/interpretationThese data indicate that fenofibrate alters the pancreatic lipidome to a more anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic state. The beneficial effects on islet sympathetic nerve fibres and blood glucose homeostasis indicate that fenofibrate could be used as a therapeutic approach to improve blood glucose homeostasis and prevent diabetes-associated pathologies.

With successful aging of adults with type 1 diabetes, there is an increased opportunity to use technology for diabetes management. Technology can ease the burden of self-care and provide a sense of security. However, age-related cognitive and physical decline can make technology use difficult. Guidelines using technology in the aging population are urgently needed, along with educational material for the clinicians and caregivers. In this article, we review the evidence supporting the use of diabetes-related technologies in the older population and discuss recommendations based on current data and the authors ’ clini...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewBeta-cell replacement is the best therapeutic option for patients with type 1 diabetes. Because of donor scarcity, more extended criteria donors are used for transplantation. Donation after circulatory death donors (DCD) are not commonly used for pancreas transplantation, because of the supposed higher risk of complications. This review gives an overview on the pathophysiology, risk factors, and outcome in DCD transplantation and discusses different preservation methods.Recent FindingsStudies on outcomes of DCD pancreata show similar results compared with those of donation after brain death (DBD), ...

DiscussionHyperchloremic acidosis is associated with a non-anion gap, decrease in plasma bicarbonate and increase in plasma chloride. Rarely, as with this case, it may present with a high-anion gap. The use of bicarbonate therapy has shown improvement in cases of non-anion gap acidosis however there is very little data to support its role in high-anion gap hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis.

Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Neurochemistry InternationalAuthor(s): W. Zhong, N.A. DarmaniAbstractGlycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3) is a constitutively active multifunctional serine-threonine kinase which is involved in diverse physiological processes. GSK-3 has been implicated in a wide range of diseases including neurodegeneration, inflammation, diabetes and cancer. GSK-3 is a downstream target for protein kinase B (Akt) which phosphorylates GSK-3 and suppresses its activity. Based upon our preliminary findings, we postulated Akt's involvement in emesis. The aim of this study was to investi...
