The study is designed to evaluate two different dietitian-led self-management approaches in carbohydrate counting compared to routine dietary care (control) on glycaemic control in adult p...
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 ...
The aim of the study is to examine the health benefits of adding a concept in basic carbohydrate counting (BCC) to the routine outpatient nutritional education for adult patients with type...
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...
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).
The use of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems has gained wide acceptance in diabetes care. These devices have been demonstrated to be clini...
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition characterised by pancreatic beta cell destruction and absolute insulin deficiency. The strongest predictor of diabetes complications is glycaemic control and...
To assess the impact of duration of prior basal insulin therapy on study outcomes in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus receiving insulin glargine 300 U/mL (Gla-300) or insulin glargine 100 U/mL (Gl...
Basal-bolus regimen is the best treatment for children with type 1 diabetes (T1D), but requires several insulin injections a day. In fact, the body's physical growth, the management of frequent snacks...
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)
