Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

2014-08-27 03:15:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

It is well known that lowering average blood glucose decreases the risk of diabetic complications involving the small vessels, such as those found in the eyes, nerves and kidney. It is less clear however, if controlling fluctuations in blood glucose will further help to prevent such complications.

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between extreme fluctuations in glucose and damage to the blood vessel lining.

Description

Studies have shown that glycemic variability is associated with oxidative stress which in turn has been correlated with endothelial damage. Further, endothelial damage has been identified as a critical event lending way to the vascular complications seen in many disease states.

The specific aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between short-term glycemic variability and biomarkers of endothelial dysfunction while analyzing the influence of different variables and adjusting for covariates.

Data obtained from a continuous glucose monitoring system(CGMS), a device that continuously records interstitial glucose for a 72 hour period, is used to calculate glycemic variability. Serology for the determination of endothelial dysfunction biomarkers is obtained on day three.

Pearson and Spearman Rank Order correlations are utilized to determine whether there are any significant correlations between measures of glycemic variability and biomarker levels of endothelial dysfunction. Multiple regression analysis would also determine if glycemic variability predicts elevated biomarker levels even after controlling for other variables.

Provided the high prevalence of diabetic complications and their staggering socioeconomic costs, it is important to elucidate the relationship between glycemic variability and endothelial dysfunction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.

VASCULAR DISEASES that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS.

Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)

Conditions or pathological processes associated with the disease of diabetes mellitus. Due to the impaired control of BLOOD GLUCOSE level in diabetic patients, pathological processes develop in numerous tissues and organs including the EYE, the KIDNEY, the BLOOD VESSELS, and the NERVE TISSUE.

Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
