Integrating Community Health Workers into Safety-Net Primary Care for Diabetes Prevention: Qualitative Analysis of Clinicians ’ Perspectives

ConclusionsClinicians found CHWs appropriate for diabetes prevention in safety-net settings. However, disseminating high-quality evidence about CHWs ’ effectiveness and operations is needed to overcome concerns about integrating CHWs in primary care.

Authors: Kadayifci FZ, Haggard S, Jeon S, Ranard K, Tao D, Pan YX Abstract Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is an increasing public health problem that poses a severe social and economic burden affecting both developed and developing countries. Defects in insulin signaling itself are among the earliest indications that an individual is predisposed to the development of insulin resistance and subsequently Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. To date, however, the underlying molecular mechanisms which result in resistance to the actions of insulin are poorly understood. Furthermore, it has been shown that maternal obesity is associated...

In this study, we investigated the impact of diverse data sources on two published computational phenotyping algorithms, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), using Mayo EHRs and Rochester Epidemiology Project (REP) which links medical records from multiple health care systems. Results showed that both RA (less prevalent) and T2DM (more prevalent) case selections were markedly impacted by data fragmentation, with positive predictive value (PPV) of 91.4 and 92.4%, false-negative rate (FNR) of 26.6 and 14% in Mayo data, respectively, PPV of 97.2 and 98.3%, FNR of 5.2 and 3.3% in REP. T2DM controls al...

Abstract Eicosanoids derived from n-6 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), serving as important signaling molecules, are implicated in many physiological and pathological processes, including Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). However, the quantification of endogenous eicosanoids is challenged by high structural similarity, low abundance in biological sample and poor electrospray ionization efficiency. In the current study, a sensitive and accurate liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method was developed to quantify 65 eicosanoids derived from n-6 and n-3 PUFAs in plasma samples using t...

Evaluation of the retinal microcirculation is key to understanding retinal vasculopathies, such as diabetic retinopathy. Laser speckle flowgraphy (LSFG) has recently enabled us to directly evaluate the vascular resistance in both retinal vessels and capillaries, non-invasively. We therefore assessed whether retinal vessel blood flow and/or the capillary microcirculation are associated with blood flow in the cervical arteries in diabetic patients without severe retinopathy.

ConclusionSubstituting white to brown and black rice is still a challenge for young adults in Indonesia. Several barriers such as culture, accessibility, and affordability need to be considered. Further efforts are important to manage a program to increase brown and black rice consumption.

tias Noll Despite the worldwide growth of class II and III obesity, the factors associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in these obese individuals are not widely understood. Moreover, no study has investigated these associations in South America. Our study aimed to investigate the prevalence of T2DM and its associated factors, with an emphasis on biochemical parameters and eating habits, in class II and III obese individuals. We also aimed to analyze the correlation between glycemic parameters and body mass index (BMI). Baseline data from a randomized clinical trial (DieTBra Trial) of 150 class II and III obese...
