Authors: Saunders A, Messer LH, Forlenza GP Abstract Introduction: Automated insulin delivery for people with type 1 diabetes has been a major goal in the diabetes technology field for many years. While a fully automated system has not yet been accomplished, the MiniMed™ 670G artificial pancreas (AP) system is the first commercially available insulin pump that automates basal insulin delivery, while still requiring user input for insulin boluses. Determining the safety and efficacy of this system is essential to the development of future devices striving for more automation. Areas Covered: This review will pr...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPeople with diabetes are at a higher risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) compared with those without diabetes. Though aspirin has been shown to have an overall net clinical benefit when used for secondary prevention of ASCVD in people with and without diabetes, the evidence for primary prevention, especially in those with diabetes, remains inconsistent. In this article, we review the latest studies examining the risks and benefits of aspirin use for primary prevention of ASCVD in adults with diabetes, discuss key aspects in assessing the risk-benefit ratio of aspirin use for prim...

ConclusionsIrregular width and appearance in ILs were identified successfully with within-section reproducibility. The moderate reproducibility across sections needs to be addressed in further studies by more systematic sampling of sections.SignificanceThe proposed protocol identifies irregularities in a reproducible manner and may suggest that irregular ILs could be used in paleopathology to identify pregnancies and diseases.LimitationsThe correlation between the identified irregular ILs and known pregnancies has not been assessed as part of this study.Suggestions for further researchThe identified irregular ILs need to b...

ConclusionThere was no significant association between the patterns of electronic devices use and CTS symptoms. The high prevalence of CTS symptoms necessitates awareness programs, especially among the young population. Although this work did not prove the association, further studies with confirmatory clinical testing are recommended.
