This project has the following specific purposes:
- To develop a clinically usable test to determine the blood glucose level or HbA1c-level, to which the retina is adapted. This will be performed by means of ERG implicit time measurements in relation to the blood glucose level during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and inter- or extrapolation to the level of blood glucose (or HbA1c) where implicit time is normal.
- To examine darkadaptation in diabetics in relation to changes in the glucose level.
- To examine vessel diameter changes in diabetic individuals when changing the glucose level transiently
Study 1: 24 type 2 diabetics with minimal diabetic retinopathy but varying HbA1c level.
Study 2: 24 type 2 diabetics with minimal diabetic retinopathy. Study 3: 24 type 2 diabetics with minimal diabetic retinopathy.
Plan of trial:
Study 1: Test individuals will be examined at baseline: Prior history of illness, eye examination, blood test, fundusphoto and fullfield-ERG. Afterwards test individuals will take an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) which results in a peak in blood glucose after approx. 2 hours, whereafter the blood glucose level normalizes. Immediately after the sugar intake test individuals will be examined by repeated fullfield-ERG's and blood glucose measurements (every 30 min) until the blood glucose level has been normalized.
Study 2: Test individuals will be examined at baseline: Prior history of illness, eye examination, blood test, fundusphoto and dark adaptation. Afterwards test individuals will take an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) which results in a peak in blood glucose after approx. 2 hours, whereafter the blood glucose level normalizes. 80 minutes after the sugar intake test individuals will be examined by repeated dark adaptation and blood glucose measurements.
Study 3: Test individuals will be examined at baseline: Prior history of illness, eye examination, blood test, fundusphoto. Afterwards test individuals will take an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) which results in a peak in blood glucose after approx. 2 hours, whereafter the blood glucose level normalizes. At baseline (fasting) and 80 minutes after the sugar intake test individuals will be examined by redfree photos of optic disc and blood glucose measurements.

The overall global prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is rising. Based on the latest Thai National Health Examination Survey, an estimated 3.2 million people had DM, of whom one-t...
People who might have prediabetes or unrecognized diabetes will be screened for these problems at an outpatient visit. For screening, they will take a sugary drink containing 50 grams of ...
Blood glucose test strips are tested with the test meters to test the accuracy of the blood pressure monitoring function.
The purpose of this project is to investigate whether the glucose response in type 1 diabetes patients measured using Continuous Glucose Monitoring measurement is reproducible in repeated ...
This study is designed to investigate the effects of diabetes mellitus and its treatment upon the body's responses to low blood glucose (blood sugar) levels. Diabetes is a medical conditio...
The pattern of glucose levels during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) may be useful for predicting diabetes or cardiovascular disease (CVD). Our aim was to determine whether the time to peak gluc...
The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is used both in clinical practice and research to assess glucose tolerance. In addition, the OGTT is utilized for surrogate measures of insulin sensitivity and t...
The use of a glucose challenge test as the universal screening for gestational diabetes is common in many countries. This test represents significant costs for laboratories and inconveniences for the ...
Guidelines recommend early detection of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). The objective of the present study was to evaluate the capacity to identify DM2 in subjects that were screened for DM2 simultane...
To study the utility of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in the diagnosis of diabetes in patients with cirrhosis as compared to the gold standard oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and to see the effect of...
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
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 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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
