Randomised Controlled Trial of Structured Personal Care of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

2014-08-27 03:15:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aims of a concluding 14-year follow-up study are:

- To investigate what long-term effect the project model for structured, personalized diabetes care has on 1) the patients' mortality and development of diabetic complications, 2) the patients' use of services from the primary and secondary sector, 3) the patients' self-rated health and motivation, and 4) the doctor-patient relationship.

Description

Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is an increasingly common illness that is linked to considerable excessive mortality. There are many indications that treatment of raised blood pressure and blood glucose as well as dyslipidaemia can postpone the development of diabetic complications. Treatment of T2DM is primarily done in general practice, where the results are not satisfactory. The purpose of the project is to create a basis so the existing research-based knowledge can be used to improve the quality of diabetes care in general practice.

The answer will be based on the information from 1,428 newly diagnosed diabetic patients aged 40 or over who were followed since 1989 in a randomised trial among more than 600 general practitioners. The intervention, which ended at the beginning of 1996, provided optimum conditions for follow-up, doctor-patient communication and treatment, among other ways by training the doctors, producing clinical guidelines and setting individual treatment goals. In the project, the general practitioner is seen as the coordinator of the whole health system's prophylactic efforts in relation to the individual diabetic patient.

The aims of a concluding 14-year follow-up are:

- To investigate what long-term effect the project model for structured, personalized diabetes care has on 1) the patients' mortality and development of diabetic complications, 2) the patients' use of services from the primary and secondary sector, 3) the patients' self-rated health and motivation, and 4) the doctor-patient relationship.

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).
