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...

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 ...

Hypoglycemia and Autonomic Nervous System Function- B2

We will study the effect of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) on baroreflex sensitivity in participants with well controlled type 2 diabetes.

Spanish translation, adaptation and validation of the Hypoglycemia Fear Survey in adults with type 1 diabetes in the Community of Madrid.

The negative impact of hypoglycemia on patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) may lead to development of fear of hypoglycemia. In this study, the original Hypoglycemia Fear Survey (HFS) questio...

Hypoglycemic Exposure and Risk of Asymptomatic Hypoglycemia in Type 1 Diabetes assessed by Continuous Glucose Monitoring.

Recurrent hypoglycemia promotes impaired awareness resulting in an increased risk of asymptomatic hypoglycemia. However, there are no firm data on the frequency of hypoglycemia in daily life needed to...

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...

Perspectives of Patients with Insulin-Treated Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes on Hypoglycemia: Results of the HAT Observational Study in Central and Eastern European Countries.

The aim of this study was to determine the level of awareness of hypoglycemia, the level of fear for hypoglycemia, and the response to hypoglycemic events among insulin-treated diabetes patients from ...

Hypoglycemia: When to Treat?

Hypoglycemia is the most common metabolic disorder encountered in neonates. The definition of hypoglycemia as well as its clinical significance and management remain controversial. Most cases of neona...

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).
