Meeting the challenges posed by an escalating diabetes healthcare burden: a mixed methods study.

Conclusions: In seeking solutions to the challenges in caring for hospitalized patients with diabetes there is a need to work across the entire hospital workforce and to develop effective and efficient methods for ensuring appropriate skills and knowledge of diabetes management for staff across complex and rapidly changing hospital systems. Relevance to clinical practice: The introduction and implementation of innovative educational and organisational strategies are needed to assist in meeting the challenges posed by an escalating diabetes healthcare burden. The safety of patients with diabetes can be optimised with the timely availability of appropriate meals and snacks, and enhanced coordination and communication between and within multidisciplinary teams. IMPACT STATEMENT: These results summarise practical strategies for optimizing patient safety for people with diabetes and reducing burdens on staff and patients.

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Oberti L, Gabrione F, Nardone M, Di Girolamo M Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) and periodontal disease (PD) are both chronic diseases. From one side, DM have an adverse effect on PD, and on the other side PD may influence DM. Systemic therapy of DM with glycaemic control, affects the progress of PD. Reversely treatment of PD combined with the administration of systemic antibiotics seems to have a double effect on diabetic patients reducing the periodontal infection and improving the glycaemic control. Inflammation, altered host responses, altered tissue homeostasis are common characteris...

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Contaldo M, Romano A, Mascitti M, Fiori F, Della Vella F, Serpico R, Santarelli A Abstract Candida species are commensal yeasts of the oral cavity, which, under predisposing systemic and/or local circumstances, are responsible for a wide variety of clinical manifestations, globally known as oral candidiasis. Candida-associated denture stomatitis is an oral candidiasis particularly affecting the oral mucosa covered by a dental prosthesis, with several degree of severity. Diabetics suffer oral candidiasis more frequently than healthy individuals do and if they are denture wearers, the risk...

The established human cholangiocarcinoma cell line; KKU-213, and highly metastatic subline; KKU-213L5, were used. KKU-213 were cultured in either Dulbecco Modified Eagle's Medium (DMEM) with normal (5.6 ...

Authors: Zaidun NH, Sahema ZCT, Mardiana AA, Santhana RL, Latiff AA, Syed Ahmad Fuad SB Abstract Chronic uncontrolled hyperglycaemia leads to increased oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation resulting in vascular complications and accelerates the progression of diabetic atherosclerosis. Though varieties of modern drugs used in the treatment of diabetes, the complications of diabetes are increasing. Naringenin (NG), has been reported to have potent antioxidant and anti-atherosclerotic properties. However, the effects of NG as vasculoprotective agent in prolonged hyperglycaemia are not well documented. Thus, this st...

Int J Endocrinol. 2019;2019:5893028 Authors: Zhou L, Kang L, Xiao X, Jia L, Zhang Q, Deng M Abstract The prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) has been increasing dramatically worldwide, but the pathogenesis is still unknown. A growing amount of evidence suggests that an abnormal developmental environment in early life increases the risk of developing metabolic diseases in adult life, which is referred to as the "metabolic memory" and the Deve...
