Timing of delivery in women with diabetes: A population ‐based study

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.

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.

CONCLUSION: Because the predictive accuracy of ultrasound prediction of birth weight improves with gestational age, fetal growth assessment at term is recommended to aid with delivery planning in women with diabetes. PMID: 31405599 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Continuous glucose monitoring tends to replace capillary blood glucose (CBG) self-monitoring. Our aim was to determine the agreement between CBG and a flash glucose monitoring system (Flash-GMS) in treatment decision-making during pregnancy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Insulin-treated women with either type 1 (n = 25), type 2 (n = 4) or gestational diabetes (n = 4) were included. A Flash-GMS sensor was applied for 14 days. Women scanned the sensor whenever they wished to monitor their CBG. The primary endpoint was the proportion of discordant therapeutic decisions they would have made bas...

In this study, we investigated the antihypertensive effect and underlying mechanisms of P. asiatica L. seeds extract (PASE) in spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR). Male SHRs were treated with 2.5 mg/kg of fosinopril (FOS) and 400 mg/kg of PASE orally per day for once or 12 weeks. SHR or Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) receiving vehicle (distilled water) was used as control. The results demonstrated systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressures (SBP, DBP, and MBP) were significantly lowered after single and long-term intragastric administration of PASE. The cardiac and aortic index and collagen accumulation were improved in the PA...

From the Incretin Concept and the Discovery of GLP-1 to Today's Diabetes Therapy Jens Juul Holst* Department of Biomedical Sciences, Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark Researchers have been looking for insulin-stimulating factors for more than 100 years, and in the 1960ties it was definitively proven that the gastrointestinal tract releases important insulinotropic factors upon oral glucose intake, so-called incretin hormones. The first significant factor identified was the duodenal glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide, GIP, wh...
