Feeding America Intervention Trial for Health--Diabetes Mellitus

2015-10-07 09:23:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The Feeding America Intervention Trial for Health—Diabetes Mellitus (FAITH-DM) is a randomized, controlled study of the implementation of a diabetes intervention in food pantry settings.

Description

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.

Frequency of Blood Glucose Monitoring in Patients With Gestational 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 ...

Primary Care - Continuous Glucose Monitoring

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...

Continuous Glucose Monitoring During and After Surgery

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...

System Accuracy Evaluation of 6 CE-marked Blood Glucose Monitoring System Following ISO 15197:2013

Cost-effectiveness analysis of real-time continuous monitoring glucose compared to self-monitoring of blood glucose for diabetes mellitus in Spain.

Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) is recommended to monitor glycaemic levels. The recent development of real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) enables continuous display of glucose con...

High-normal blood glucose levels may be associated with decreased spatial perception in young healthy adults.

The negative effects of high normal glucose on cognitive function were previously reported in euglycemic individuals of middle age and the elderly population. This study aimed at examining the effect ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
