Quality Gaps of Electronic Health Records in Diabetes Care

This study compared extracted structured EHR data with chart review from endocrinologists’ health-care records at a large, academic ambulatory hospital in Toronto, Ontario.MethodsConsecutive chart review for the first 10 patients with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes seen between January 1, 2015 and March 1, 2016 was sampled for each of the 10 endocrinologists within the diabetes program, and electronic data extraction was also completed for a core set of structured diabetes care elements. Fisher exact test was used to determine differences in data availability between extracted EHR data and chart review.ResultsOut of 100 charts, there was significant under-representation of care elements using EHR extraction compared with chart review for glycated hemoglobin (45% vs 100%; p

This article aims for summarizing current clinical knowledge on screening, diagnosis, and treatment and gives an overview on the pathophysiology of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in diabetes.Recent FindingsRecent studies reveal novel insights into the close interaction of acinar, ductal, and endocrine cells and the gut-pancreas axis.SummaryExocrine pancreatic insufficiency is a clinically relevant, frequent but poorly understood disorder in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

AbstractProteinuria has been considered to be the hallmark of diabetic kidney disease and to precede renal function loss. However, it has become clear that a substantial proportion of patients either with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes have renal function loss without proteinuria, known as nonproteinuric diabetic kidney disease. Despite increasing recognition of the prevalence of nonproteinuric diabetic kidney disease, data on this phenotype of diabetic kidney disease is sparse. This review describes ever known clinical and pathological manifestations, renal prognosis, and mortality in patient with nonproteinuric diabetic kidney disease.

Managing insulin-dependent diabetes is no easy task. Most patients manually measure blood glucose and calculate insulin dosing using traditional multiple dose injection (MDI) therapy, a burdensome process that puts them at risk for both hypo- and hyp...

The multiple endocrine functions of bone other than those related to mineral metabolism, such as regulation of insulin sensitivity, glucose homeostasis, and energy metabolism, have recently been discovered. In vitro and murine studies investigated the impact of several molecules derived from osteoblasts and osteocytes on glucose metabolism. In addition, the effect of glucose on bone cells suggested a mutual cross-talk between bone and glucose homeostasis. In humans, these mechanisms are the pivotal determinant of the skeletal fragility associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Metabolic abnormalities associated with...

Authors: Yap YA, Mariño E Abstract Diet-microbiota related inflammatory conditions such as obesity, autoimmune type 1 diabetes (T1D), type 2 diabetes (T2D), cardiovascular disease (CVD) and gut infections have become a stigma in Western societies and developing nations. This book chapter examines the most relevant pre-clinical and clinical studies about diet-gut microbiota approaches as an alternative therapy for diabetes. We also discuss what we and others have extensively investigated- the power of dietary short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) technology that naturally targets the gut microbiota as an alternativ...
