Authors: Mouslech Z, Somali M, Sarantis L, Christos D, Alexandra C, Maria P, Mastorakos G, Savopoulos C, Hatzitolios AI Abstract OBJECTIVE: Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) constitutes a real challenge in everyday practice for both physicians and patients. Due to the complexity of the disease and its unpredictable nature, structured education and training programs are nowadays implemented that ensure active patient involvement and self-care behaviors to achieve adequate glycemic control, prevent diabetic complications, and improve the quality of life of patients. These programs provide patients with the necessary kn...

Publication date: January 2019Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 47Author(s): Anirudh Nath, Rajeeb Dey, Carlos Aguilar-AvelarAbstractThis paper deals with the design of observer-based nonlinear control of blood glucose concentration (BGC) of Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients in a Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) framework. The controller design relies on the information of the states obtained from a nonlinear observer. The control law is derived using feedback linearisation and regional pole placement technique. Further, a numerical optimisation method is proposed for the computation of the contr...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn addition to assisting in achieving improved glucose control, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor technology may also aid in detection and prevention of hypoglycemia. In this paper, we report on the current scientific evidence on the effectiveness of this technology in the prevention of severe hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia unawareness.Recent FindingsRecent studies have found that the integration of CGM with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) therapy, a system known as sensor-augmented pump (SAP) therapy, very significantly reduces the occurrence of these conditions by providin...

This study aims to examine associated risk factors for all-cause mortality among prevalent patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) within 5  years’ period and subsequently develop a logistic regression model to predict the outcome. This was a cohort study where prevalent patients diagnosed with T1DM were notified in a national diabetes registry. Patients’ particulars were recorded between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2009. Their records were matched with national death record at the end of year 2013 to determine the status of mortality within 5 years. The factors associated with mortality were...

Capillary Biomedical is looking to develop a safer more reliable and accurate insulin infusion device. The Irvine, CA-based company has closed on $2.9 million in a series seed financing to help get its SteadiSet infusion set on the market. The Series Seed financing involved several Angel groups, including Tech Coast Angels, New York Angels, HBS Alumni Angels of New York, Pasadena Angels and the Mass Medical Angels, making the financing one of the broadest and most successful syndications among Angel investor groups. Other investors included the ACE Fund, PA Fund and NYA Fund. Financing proceeds will be used for clinical tr...

This study aimed to explore the changes in brain structure in the diabetic rats with and without cognitive impairment. Morris water maze method was used for screening the diabetic rats with/without cognitive impairment. These diabetic rats and controls were imaged using magnetic resonance imaging that segmented into gray and white matter, which was further analyzed using voxel-based morphology (VBM) and regions of interest (ROI) based image retrieval. The ROI results showed that the whole brain volume decreased in diabetic rats with/without cognitive impairment as compared to the control (P
