Initial experiences of adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes and high-risk glycemic control after starting flash glucose monitoring - a qualitative study

ConclusionsFlash glucose monitoring may be an acceptable self-management tool to increase monitoring frequency in adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes and high-risk glycemic control, with the potential to improve long-term glycemic control. Initial support efforts should focus on practical strategies to prolong sensor wear and motivate frequent scanning as well as education on interpreting glucose data and making informed treatment decisions to maximize the benefits of this technology.

Conclusion: Our human PET/CT-based dosimetric calculations show that the effective radiation doses from the novel tracer 68Ga-NODAGA-exendin-4 are very low for adults and children. The doses are lower than reported for other polypeptide tracers such as somatostatin analogs (2.1–2.6 mSv/100 MBq) and are beneficial for application as a research tool, especially when repeated examinations are needed.

Reiss, for the Diabetes Research in Children Network (DirecNet) BackgroundOptimal glycemic control is particularly difficult to achieve in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D), yet the influence of dysglycemia on the developing brain remains poorly understood. Methods and findingsUsing a large multi-site study framework, we investigated activation patterns using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in 93 children with T1...

ConclusionsThe clinical decision regarding timing of delivery is complex and contingent on maternal ‐fetal wellbeing, including adequate glycemic control. This study suggests that delivery at 38, 39 or 40 weeks’ gestation may optimize neonatal outcomes among women with diabetes.

AbstractAimsAdults with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) have decreased bone mineral density (BMD). Our study aimed at determining BMD and the association to metabolic control in children and adolescents with T1D.Methods244 patients (113 girls) with a median age of 14.3  years and T1D duration of 1–16 years were included. A dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scan assessed BMDZ-scores excluding the head (total body less head, TBLH). TBLH-BMD were then investigated for associations to diabetes relevant variables such as HbA1c, insulin treatment, anthropometry and physical activity.ResultsIn all participants the T...

Conclusions: The results show that GLP-1 infusion suppresses the postprandial secretion of gastrin in normal subjects and even more so in the diabetes patients. The results may therefore shed further light on the upper gastrointestinal side effects of GLP-1-derived drugs in diabetic patients. PMID: 31725337 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractAimsPlatelets are pivotal in arterial thrombosis, and platelet hyperresponsiveness may contribute to the increased incidence of cardiovascular events in diabetes mellitus. Consequently, we hypothesized that increased in vitro platelet aggregation responses exist in men with diabetes mellitus.MethodsThe Danish Cardiovascular Screening Trial (DANCAVAS) is a community-based cardiovascular screening trial including men aged 65 –74 years. Platelet aggregation was tested using 96-well light transmission aggregometry with thrombin receptor-activating peptide (TRAP), adenosine diphosphate, collagen type 1, arach...

Pocket-size ultrasound devices that cost 50 times less than the machines in hospitals (and connect to your phone). Virtual reality that speeds healing in rehab. Artificial intelligence that’s better than medical experts at spotting lung tumors. These are just some of the innovations now transforming medicine at a remarkable pace. No one can predict the future, but it can at least be glimpsed in the dozen inventions and concepts below. Like the people behind them, they stand at the vanguard of health care. Neither exhaustive nor exclusive, the list is, rather, representative of the recasting of public health and medic...
