Study to Find Out if Intensive Diabetes Clinic and Continuous Glucose Monitors Help Teenagers With Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:15:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to find out ways to help pre-teens and teens and their families to improve diabetes control and to help with the burden of diabetes management. Specifically, the study aims to find out if coming to diabetes clinic more frequently and for a longer period of time helps adolescents with diabetes, and if adolescents who wear a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) for 3-5 days a month will have better diabetes control.

Description

Good glycemic control is critical in preventing chronic complications of type 1 diabetes. However, achieving good glycemic control remains elusive for many adolescents. This study evaluates two clinic-based approaches for improving glycemic control in adolescents with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes - an intensive diabetes support and education program alone and the same intensive diabetes support and education program together with continuous glucose monitoring - in comparison with standard diabetes care.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.

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.

A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.

Peptide hormones that cause an increase in the absorption of GLUCOSE by cells within organs such as LIVER, MUSCLE and ADIPOSE TISSUE. During normal metabolism insulins are produced by the PANCREATIC BETA CELLS in response to increased GLUCOSE. Natural and chemically-modified forms of insulin are also used in the treatment of GLUCOSE METABOLISM DISORDERS such as DIABETES MELLITUS.
