Type 1 diabetes mellitus management in young children: implementation of current technologies.

Type 1 diabetes mellitus management in young children: implementation of current technologies. Pediatr Res. 2019 Nov 12;: Authors: Nevo-Shenker M, Phillip M, Nimri R, Shalitin S Abstract The use of advanced technologies for diabetes management is on the rise among pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), continuous glucose monitoring, predictive low glucose suspend, hybrid closed-loop insulin delivery systems-all enable better diabetes management and glycemic control. However, when used by children, and especially very young children, specific aspects must be taken into consideration, including technical parameters, ease of use, parental stress, and satisfaction. The unique characteristics of T1D in children aged

Glycemic control in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) remains a challenge for many, despite the availability of modern diabetes technology. While technologies have proven glycemic benefits and may reduce excess mortality in some populations, both mortality a...

Conclusions: Our estimated rates of prevalence of GP in T1DM and T2DM indicate that GP is not a common clinical complication in these populations. Majority of EMRs that indicated a diagnosis of GP did not include any documentation of definitive diagnostic testing (EGD and/or GES).

AbstractSodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor clinical studies in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) have demonstrated reduced HbA1c and lower glucose variability with increased time in optimal glucose range as well as additional benefits of reductions in weight and insulin dose without increasing the incidence of hypoglycaemia. However, the appropriate use of SGLT2 inhibitor therapies within clinical practise to treat people with T1DM remains unclear. In this article we have used consensus expert opinion alongside the available evidence, product indication and most recent clinical guidance to provide support for t...

Nature Reviews Gastroenterology &Hepatology, Published online: 06 December 2019; doi:10.1038/s41575-019-0242-7An area of research suggests a role for microbiota in the pathogenesis of pancreatic diseases, such as pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer and type 1 diabetes mellitus. In this Perspectives, the authors examine the literature implicating microorganisms in diseases of the pancreas as well as the evidence of an inherent pancreatic microbiota.

In this study, we investigated whether DIM could improve insulin-dependent diabetes and nephropathy in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic mice. In mice, STZ induced hyperglycemia, hunger, thirst, and abnormally increased kidney weight and serum creatinine, which is a renal functional parameter. DIM decreased STZ-increased high blood glucose levels and food and water intake in diabetic mice. DIM also improved diabetic nephropathy by inhibiting the expression of PKC-α, the marker of albuminuria, and TGF-β1, an indicator of renal hypertrophy, in diabetic mice. Our findings suggest that DIM may ameliorate...

One of the more unexpected recent findings relating to cellular senescence is that it appears to be an important part of the mechanisms that lead to loss of the pancreatic β-cells responsible for insulin secretion in both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes - which are very different conditions, despite the shared name. The authors of the brief open access commentary noted here discuss the present state of this research. Age is one of the major risk factors for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). However, the understanding of how cellular aging contributes to diabetes pathogenesis is incomplete...

CONCLUSIONS: T1DM girls revealed a decreased ratio of cortical bone area/muscle area, reflecting disturbed adaptation of the cortical shaft to the muscle force. When the Z-scores of cortical shell dimensions were investigated, cases in Tanner stage 5 diverged from "less mature" individuals, which may suggests that bone shaft development in these individuals was impaired, affecting both size and strength.

Conclusion: The study outcome demonstrated a high prevalence of early signs of microvascular complications such as retinopathy and nephropathy among youths with short duration of T1DM. Poor glycemic control, if not halted, is associated with early signs of microvascular complications which may become clinically evident; contrary to the belief that they are rare in childhood.
