Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is one of the most common medical complications of pregnancy. Neonatal hypoglycemia is a common and well described complication for infants born to moth...
To determine whether intensive glucose control results in improved mortality and reduced hospital stay length by performing a randomized trial of intensive glucose management (blood glucos...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the relationship between serious mental illness and the detection and management of diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions. Patients who hav...
The purpose of this research study is to find out ways to help pre-teens and teens and their families to improve diabetes control and to help with the burden of diabetes management. Specif...
Diabetes is a leading cause of death in the Western World with medical costs increasing annually. There is no cure for diabetes, and blood glucose monitoring is a key component in diabetes...
Although the ability of glucose to mediate its own in vivo metabolism is long documented, the quantitative measurement of whole body glucose-mediated glucose disposal at basal insulin levels, [glucose...
We investigated the specificity of the 75g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and the clinical usefulness of the 2h post loading glucose (2h PLG) value in the clinical care of diabetes patients.
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems allow patients with diabetes mellitus to closely track glucose concentrations over several days, identify trends in glucose levels, and avoid glucose excurs...
To evaluate the evidence for the novel dual sodium-glucose co-transporter-1 and -2 inhibitor, sotagliflozin, which may enhance the efficacy of sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors by additionall...
Achieving maternal euglycemia in women with pregestational and gestational diabetes mellitus is critical to decreasing the risk of neonatal hypoglycemia, as maternal blood glucose levels around the ti...
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 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.
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.
Peptide hormones that cause an increase in the absorption of GLUCOSE by cells within organs such as LIVER, MUSCLE and ADIPOSE TISSUE. During normal metabolism insulins are produced by the PANCREATIC BETA CELLS in response to increased GLUCOSE. Natural and chemically-modified forms of insulin are also used in the treatment of GLUCOSE METABOLISM DISORDERS such as DIABETES MELLITUS.
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).
