Complementary and alternative medicine in Brazilian children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus.

CONCLUSIONS: The construction of the profile revealed a group of patients that deserve a special attention by health professionals because they are more prone to adopt behaviors that impair the success of the treatment, such as not counting carbohydrates and not informing the doctor about the use of CAM.

AbstractAimsSome patients with diabetic ketoacidosis develop cerebral edema (CE) in the course of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D), which may result in central nervous system disorders and high mortality. The imperfection of existing neuroimaging techniques for early recognition of CE forces us to search for the new and non-invasive methods. The aim of the study was to assess the usefulness of new methods (pachymetry, transorbital ultrasonography —USG, optical coherence tomography—OCT study) in the assessment of the risk of CE occurrence in children with newly diagnosed T1D.MethodsThe study group included 50 chil...

AbstractPurposeTo clarify the relevance between smoking and diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.MethodsPublished evidence were searched in MEDLINE and EMBASE from the databases began until Feb. 2017. Studies evaluating the association between smoking and diabetic retinopathy or evaluating the risk factors of diabetic retinopathy including smoking were included.ResultsTotally 73 studies were identified, among which 19 studies included type 1 diabetes patients and 56 studies included type 2 diabetes patients. In type 1 diabetes, compare with non-smokers, the risk of diabetic retinopathy ...

NeteaIn addition to the impact of Bacillus Calmette–Guerin (BCG) vaccination on antimicrobial host defence, a novel study reveals beneficial effects on glycaemic control in patients with long-standing type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). These effects are ascribed to an accelerated glucose consumption in immune cells due to increased glycolysis and reduced oxidative phosphorylation.

Authors: Cheon CK Abstract The incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) in children and adolescents is on the rise world-wide. T1DM is caused by the combined effects of genetic and environmental factors that makes it difficult to predict whether or not an individual will inherit disease. Due to the level of self-care necessary in the maintenance of T1DM, it is crucial for pediatric settings to support achieving optimal glucose control especially when adolescents are beginning to take more responsibility for their own health. Innovative insulin delivery system such as continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CS...

La RoccaAbstractDiabetes is a common metabolic disorder affecting the entire body with high morbidity and mortality worldwide. The major complications related to diabetes are mostly due to the macrovascular and microvascular bed impairment due to metabolic, hemodynamic and inflammatory factors. However, studies over the past decades have added also the lung as a target organ in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes has always been addressed as a major comorbidity conditioning t...

Authors: Røder ME Abstract Neutral Protamine Hagedorn insulin with an intermediate action profile has been in use for many years for the treatment of Type 1 diabetes and as an option for Type 2 diabetes. It is efficacious in reducing blood sugars, but shows substantial variability and risk of hypoglycemia. Basal insulin analogs have been developed in recent years to overcome these issues. Three basal insulin analogs are currently in the market in Europe. PEGylated insulin lispro is a new second-generation basal insulin analog which most likely will undergo review in 2016 by the US FDA and EMA in Europe for p...
