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.

CONCLUSION: Early intervention and education from primary care and specialist diabetes teams within the community in deprived areas may be effective in reducing hospital admissions for diabetes-related problems and improving glycemic control. PMID: 29145539 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Röhlig M, Jünemann A, Fischer DC, Prakasam RK, Stachs O, Schumann H Abstract Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables noninvasive high-resolution 3D imaging of the human retina, and thus plays a fundamental role in ophthalmology. Via OCT examination, even subtle retinal changes can be captured, which occur in very early stages of different diseases (e.g., glaucoma, diabetes mellitus, or age-related macular degeneration). Yet, analyzing the resulting data is challenging. Conventionally, OCT data are strongly aggregated via automated methods. While this reduces the amount of information to be ana...

Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
In this study, the infants were fed at 3- to 4-h intervals. All patients were started on insulin therapy with 0.6 U/kg/day divided equally into four doses. The morning, noon, and evening doses were given as premixed insulin (25% insulin lispro and 75% insulin lispro protamin sulphate), while the night insulin dose was given as premixed or neutral protamin Hagedorn (NPH) insulin according to the feeding freque ncy during the night. Nine-point capillary blood glucose profiles, HbA1c, and anthropometric measurements were evaluated. The study had 15 infants diagnosed with neonatal diabetes (ND) or type 1 diabetes mellitu...
CONCLUSION: Growing evidence indicates that miR-17-92 cluster plays significant roles in bone, lipid and glucose metabolisms through a variety of signaling pathways. Fully understanding its modulating mechanisms may necessarily facilitate to comprehend the clinical and molecule features of some metabolic disorders such as osteoporosis, arthrosclerosis and diabetes mellitus. It may provide new drug targets to prevent and cure these disorders. PMID: 29149826 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life (. Breastfeeding confers many short- and long-term benefits for infants and mothers, including reduced childhood obesity and lower maternal body weight [2 –6]. Exclusive breastfeeding is also recommended in women with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), for at least four months . However, the impact of breastfeeding on mothers with T1DM, and, conversely, the impact of maternal T1DM on breastfeeding, is not clear.
CONCLUSIONS: This study offers, for the first time, current data on the epidemiological situation related to health care data, comparing them with the recommendations of European standards, highlighting a low ratio of endocrinologists and educators in diabetes, absence of psychologists and low technology penetrance.
