A pilot study to assess the safety, feasibility, and potential (uncontrolled) efficacy of continuous glucose monitoring (CGMS) in conjunction with an insulin pump to improve glycemic control for treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients with gastroparesis
This multicenter, uncontrolled, open label treatment study is to assess the safety of CGMS in guiding insulin pump therapy for 24 weeks by measuring mild, moderate, and severe hypoglycemic episodes in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and gastroparesis.
Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate whether the patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus in sub-optimal glycemic control can achieve better glycemic control by using the Medtr...
During this study, we propose to assess the utility of Continuous Glucose Measurements (CGM) in a group of Type 1 diabetic patients treated with an implanted insulin pump. Patients will pa...
We wish to find out if in non-diabetic pregnancies, as well as diabetic pregnancies, additional data obtained by Continuous Glucose Monitoring improves perinatal risk prediction.
The purpose of the study is to learn more about blood glucose control when people with Type 1 Diabetes switch to an insulin pump. The investigators hope to learn whether using a continuous...
The purpose of the study is to investigate whether the combination of insulin pump therapy and continued glucose monitoring (CGM) is superior to multiple daily insulin injections to preven...
Decades after the invention of insulin pump, diabetes management has encountered a technology revolution with the introduction of continuous glucose monitoring, sensor-augmented insulin pump therapy a...
Erratic blood glucose levels can be a cause and consequence of delayed gastric emptying in patients with diabetes. It is unknown if better glycemic control increases risks of hypoglycemia or improves ...
Technology for diabetes care has undergone major development during recent decades. These technological advances include continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), also known as insulin pumps, a...
With the aim to improve current therapeutic and monitoring options for diabetic cats, the present study compared pharmacodynamic parameters of protamine zinc insulin (PZI) and insulin degludec and val...
We compared the efficacy of insulin detemir and biphasic insulin aspart-30 given in the morning as an add-on to oral hypoglycemic agents (OHAs) in type 2 diabetic patients.
Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS. It can be caused by the presence of INSULIN ANTIBODIES or the abnormalities in insulin receptors (RECEPTOR, INSULIN) on target cell surfaces. It is often associated with OBESITY; DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS; INFECTION; and certain rare conditions. (from Stedman, 25th ed)
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
