AbstractSince fulminant type 1 diabetes was reported as a distinct subtype of type 1 diabetes in 2000, the Committee on Type 1 diabetes, Japan Diabetes Society has continuously recruited patients and conducted genomic research to elucidate the genetic basis of fulminant type 1 diabetes. The contribution of the human leukocyte antigen complex (HLA) to genetic susceptibility to fulminant type 1 diabetes was compared with that of other subtypes in 2009. The alleles and haplotypes associated with fulminant type 1 diabetes were found to be different from acute-onset and slowly progressive type 1 diabetes.DRB1*15:01-DQB1*06:02, ...
all diabetes and Ramadan guidelines advice against fasting for people with type 1 diabetes, however, many insist on fasting. Consequently, this causes a challenge due to the risk of hypoglycaemia, hyperglycemia +/- diabetic ketoacidosis.
This study aimed to investigate whether supplemental soluble fiber, oat β-glucan, has any effect on glycemic control and variability of adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Prevalence of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is globally continuously increasing. T1DM is accompanied by a high risk of developing cardiovascular and renal comorbidities and is one of the leading causes of end-stage renal disease (ESRD).However, current therapeutic approaches for chronic and/or diabetic kidney disease (CKD/DKD) existed for a long time, and offer room for improvement, particularly in T1DM. In 2019, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved a first sodium/glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT-2i) and a first dual SGLT-1/-2i to improve glycaemic control, as an adjunctive treatment to insulin in persons...
Monogenic diabetes is clinically heterogeneous and differs from common forms of diabetes (type 1 and 2). We aimed to investigate the clinical usefulness of a comprehensive genetic testing system, comprised of targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) with phenotype-driven bioinformatics analysis in patients with monogenic diabetes, which uses patient genotypic and phenotypic data to prioritize potentially causal variants.
(Diabetologia) New research presented at this year's annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD), held online this year (21-25 September), shows that having type 1 diabetes (T1D) is associated with a 33% increase in the risk of falls compared with the general population, while having type 2 diabetes (T2D) is associated with a 19% increased risk of falls.
This article will provide essential considerations concerning the physicochemical properties of the most commonly used biomaterials, relevant aspects of the immune response to bioencapsulation, current encapsulation strategies, potential implantation sites for encapsulated cell therapies and, finally, a comprehensive review on the current state of clinical translation. © 2020 American Physiological Society.

This study aims to determine the incidence of T1D in children under the age of 15 years, living in Tlemcen in Northwest Algeria. METHODS: A retrospective study conducted on data of children (
Conclusion: We found similar TIR and comparatively higher TBR frequencies, particularly during sleep, than those that were previously reported. Possible reasons for the higher frequency of TBR include differences in the quality of insulin treatment and diabetes care between the present study and the European studies. The utilization of advanced technologies, such as a predictive low-glucose suspend-function pump or closed-loop therapy, can reduce the frequency of TBR, with a consequent increase in TIR frequency and comprehensive improvement in glycemic control.Horm Res Paediatr
