Diabetes advocate and journalist Jessica Apple describes how her family handles Hanukkah (in Israel) with type 1 diabetes on board.
The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership has published the results of audits of insulin pump treatment for patients with type 1 diabetes and early intervention in psychosis.
Low-carbohydrate diet (LCD) has gained interest among individuals with diabetes as a means to manage glycaemia. We investigated the adherence to LCD in the Finnish Diabetic Nephropathy Study and whether carbohydrate restriction is associated with cardio-metabolic risk factors.
Hypertrophy and dysfunction of the urinary bladder are consistently observed in animal models of type 1 and less consistently in those of type 2 diabetes. We have tested the effects of mild hyperglycemia (n = 10 per group) in a randomized, blinded study and, in a blinded pilot study, of type 2 diabetes (n = 6 per group) and its treatment with dapagliflozin (1 mg/kg/day) on weight, contraction and relaxation of the rat bladder. Based on a combination of high-fat diet and a low dose of streptozotocin, animals in the main study reached a mean peak blood glucose level of about 300 mg/dl, which declined to 205 mg/dl at study en...

Conclusion. These data demonstrate that DM may contribute to IDD by increasing aggrecan degradation and promoting cell apoptosis, which may represent early indicators of the involvement of DM in the pathogenesis of IDD. Level of Evidence: N/A
ConclusionsThe dawn phenomenon occurs in approximately half of patients with type 1 diabetes, when present it has predictable timing of onset (generally 3am) and has substantial but highly variable magnitude. These findings imply that optimization of glycemic control requires clinical emphasis on fasted overnight basal insulin assessment.
