Incidence of Poorly Controlled Diabetes in Surgical Population

2019-09-04 00:26:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Our study aims to determine the incidence of undiagnosed and poorly controlled diabetes among surgical patients in Singapore using preoperative HbA1c as a screening tool.

Description

The study aims to determine the incidence of undiagnosed and poorly controlled diabetes among surgical patients in Singapore using preoperative HbA1c as a screening tool.

The investigators aim to follow up on the incidence of perioperative complications in this cohort. In the longer term, the investigators hope to evaluate the role of a preoperative diabetic screening and intervention program as an opportunistic "teachable moment" for surgical patients. This may help to achieve greater control of the disease burden in Singapore.

Specific aims:

Specific Aim 1: To establish the incidence of undiagnosed diabetes/prediabetes among surgical patients in Singapore, based on HbA1c level ≥ 6.1% prior to surgery Specific Aim 2: To establish the incidence of poorly-controlled diabetes among surgical patients in Singapore, based on HbA1c level ≥ 8% prior to surgery Specific Aim 3: To identify and characterize any association between preoperative HbA1c level and postoperative outcomes

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Diabetes mellitus induced experimentally by administration of various diabetogenic agents or by PANCREATECTOMY.

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

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.

A strain of Rattus norvegicus which is a model for spontaneous insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, INSULIN-DEPENDENT).
