Identification of Inpatients at Risk for Poor Glycemic Control

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia can be detrimental to hospitalized patients. However, it is not clear which patients are more likely to develop significant problems with hypoglycemia or severe hyperglycemia in the hospital. Our hypothesis is that we will be able to identify risk factors present at admission that identify patients at greater risk of poor inpatient glycemic control

Treatment Plan for an Individual Patient With Pasireotide for Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia

Somatostatin analogues are a last resort for medical intervention in hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (HH). The hypoglycemia is very debilitating and can be even life threatening. There is li...

Continuous Glucose Monitoring and Hypoglycemia Unawareness in Type 1 Diabetes

Looking for strict normoglycemia in type 1 diabetes increases the risk of hypoglycemia, exposing to hypoglycemia unawareness. It has been shown that the early correction of hypoglycemia ca...

Study of How Low Blood Sugar Affects the Way Blood Vessels Work

Hypothesis: Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) decreases function of the lining of the blood vessels in normal humans. This study is designed to explore how hypoglycemia affects the function ...

Study on Lixisenatide and Counterregulation to Hypoglycemia

In hypoglycemia, there is a counterregulation to restore glucose levels. An important part of this counterregulation is the release of the hormone glucagon. Since the GLP-1 receptor agonis...

Metabolic Causes of Thrombosis in Type 2 Diabetes - Question 4

Hypoglycemia occurs frequently in intensively treated patients with diabetes. Although hypoglycemia was thought to occur almost exclusively in T1DM, with the advent of improved metabolic ...

Direct Health-Care Costs and Productivity Costs Associated With Hypoglycemia in Adults With Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus That Participated in the Canadian Hypoglycemia Assessment Tool Program.

There is a paucity of information concerning the cost of hypoglycemia events in Canadians with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The objective of this study was to estimate the direct health-care costs and i...

Prevention and Management of Severe Hypoglycemia and Hypoglycemia Unawareness: Incorporating Sensor Technology.

In addition to assisting in achieving improved glucose control, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) sensor technology may also aid in detection and prevention of hypoglycemia. In this paper, we report...

Hypoglycemia and Glucagon Utilization in Insulin-Treated Diabetic Patients  .

First choice of therapy for severe hypoglycemia outside hospital environment is glucagon injection, an undertaught and underused remedy. Aim of this study was to investigate knowledge about glucagon t...

Hypoglycemia induced by Plasmodium berghei infection is prevented by treatment with Tinospora crispa stem extract.

During Plasmodium malaria parasite infection in a human, the intraerythrocytic stages lead to the clinical manifestations of the disease, especially hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is a recognized feature ...

Hypoglycemia in type 1A diabetes can develop before insulin therapy: a retrospective cohort study.

There are as yet no cohort studies of hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes before starting insulin therapy. Our aim was to determine the frequency and clinical features of hypoglycemia in patients with typ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

Works about clinical studies in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

A syndrome of abnormally low BLOOD GLUCOSE level. Clinical hypoglycemia has diverse etiologies. Severe hypoglycemia eventually lead to glucose deprivation of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM resulting in HUNGER; SWEATING; PARESTHESIA; impaired mental function; SEIZURES; COMA; and even DEATH.

A work that reports on the results of a research study to evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies. While most clinical studies concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans.

A familial, nontransient HYPOGLYCEMIA with defects in negative feedback of GLUCOSE-regulated INSULIN release. Clinical phenotypes include HYPOGLYCEMIA; HYPERINSULINEMIA; SEIZURES; COMA; and often large BIRTH WEIGHT. Several sub-types exist with the most common, type 1, associated with mutations on an ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS (subfamily C, member 8).
