For adults with diabetes mellitus, diabetes self-management education (DSME) is critical to achieving long-term control of blood sugar levels (glycemic control) and preventing diabetes-associated complications. This education is often difficult to access for highly vulnerable and marginalized adults in the United States. Furthermore, foods for a diabetic diet are often out of reach for food insecure households. The purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which food banks and food pantries can help reach this population with effective DSME, food, and access to primary health care. The investigators' primary outcome of interest is HbA1c improvement in the intervention group compared to a wait-listed control group of food pantry clients living with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes.

The incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is increasing. GDM requires patients to test their blood glucose at least four times daily. The investigators propose to prospectively ...
Introduction and objective: The key to optimal diabetes management is tight glucose control. Hemoglobin A1c is the gold standard to assess glycemic control but in cases of unrecognized hyp...
During surgery and after surgery elevated blood glucose levels can lead to poor outcome such as wound infections. Current technology does not allow close monitoring of glucose levels often...
The objective of this study is the evaluation of system accuracy following ISO 15197:2013 (E), clause 6.3 in which accuracy requirements and applicable test procedures for blood glucose mo...
Diabetes mellitus type 1 (DM1) is an autoimmune metabolic disease in which the insulin producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed and the subject is left totally dependent of external s...
To examine the degree of knowledge and management of automated devices for office blood pressure measurement (AD), home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM)...
In 2015, the US Preventive Services Task Force updated their hypertension recommendations to advise that adults with elevated office blood pressure (BP) undergo out-of-office BP measurement to exclude...
To determine the feasibility of using a real-time continuous glucose monitoring system (RTGMS) in intensive care units, our study focus on preterm infants with diabetic mothers owing to their high ris...
Impaired glucose control in very preterm infants is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and poor neurologic outcome. Strategies based on insulin titration have been unsuccessful in achievi...
The treatment and care of patients with chronic diseases depends directly on the evolution of biomedical parameters. It is important to have a monitoring health care system that provides biomedical da...
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism ...
