Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: There have been growing concerns regarding the long-term effects of insulin glargine (A21Gly,B31Arg,B32Arg human insulin) on the risk of breast cancer. METHODS: We used the UK's Gener...
Abstract Diabetes mellitus has reached epidemic proportions worldwide, eliciting extensive research on both the disease process and its treatment. Regardless of diabetes type, the progressive nature o...
Insulin glargine is the first long-acting basal insulin analogue used for subcutaneous administration once daily in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus. To obtain the further bioavailabil...
Insulin degludec (Tresiba(®)) is an ultra-long-acting insulin analogue that is also available as a coformulation with rapid-acting insulin aspart (insulin degludec/insulin aspart) [Ryzodeg(®)]. Insu...
Abstract Objective: To evaluate the efficacy, safety and treatment satisfaction of insulin glargine plus oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) in Chinese individuals with Type 2 diabetes inadequately control...
Long-acting insulin injected at bedtime may cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in the night in patients with diabetes. The aims of the study are 1) to compare the dynamic characteristics...
Patients with diabetes treated with insulin often gain weight, which may deter patients from adhering to insulin treatment. Detemir is one type of long acting insulin approved by the Food...
The aim of this project is to confirm the efficacy and safety profile of Insulin glargine in daily practice and to improve the physicians’ knowledge and experience concerning Insulin gla...
To compare the efficacy and safety of once-nightly insulin glargine versus a single morning injection of glargine or once-nightly NPH insulin in ethnic minority type 2 diabetic patients in...
The primary objective of this study is to show that a prandial insulin regimen, consisting of premeal insulin lispro "mid mixture" (or a combined regimen of insulin lispro "mid mixture" an...
