The study investigated the effects of fat protein counting (CFP) in addition to carbohydrate (CARB) counting for calculating prandial insulin dosage on blood glucose profile in patients wi...
During this study, we will assess a new smart phone application which aims at helping patients with Type 1 diabetes to compute food carbohydrates and meal insulin doses. Patients, already ...
Current intensive insulin therapy in T1D involves prandial insulin boluses depending on the carbohydrate content of each ingested meal. Carbohydrate content of ingested meals is the main d...
For people with Type 1 Diabetes, blood glucose control is achieved by matching insulin doses directly to the amount of carbohydrate consumed. We are looking at new ways to help our patient...
Study is an interventional clinical trial. Pregnant women (aged 25-40 years) diagnosed with GDM (by a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks' gestation) will be recruited convenie...
This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of carbohydrate counting (CHOC) in the treatment of adult patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1).
To evaluate adherence to care standards for people with diabetes (PWDs) on insulin therapy versus PWDs who are not on insulin therapy, controlling for social determinants.
Treating hyperglycemia in previously non-diabetic individuals with exogenous insulin immediately after kidney transplantation reduced the odds of developing Posttransplantation Diabetes Mellitus (PTDM...
In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requested that all new type 2 anti-diabetic drugs, including long-acting insulin analogues, need to be rigorously examined to preclude undesirable cardio...
Preoperative oral carbohydrate therapy has been suggested to attenuate postoperative insulin resistance. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a carbohydrate-rich beverage given p...
Detection and counting of scintillations produced in a fluorescent material by ionizing radiation.
The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.
A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.
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).
Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
