Hyperglycemia may impact brain development in children with type 1 diabetes

Researchers report that having type 1 diabetes may affect children’s brain growth and cognitive development, with persistent hyperglycemia the most likely culprit.

Study highlights ‘immaturity’ of diabetes self-management apps

A large proportion of mobile apps for self-management of blood glucose do not provide real-time decision support for users with type 2 diabetes, researchers report.

Real-world benefits of flash glucose monitoring confirmed in high-risk cases

Flash glucose monitoring significantly reduces time in hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia in people with diabetes at high risk for either outcome, with the benefit sustained for at least 6 months, real-world study data show.

Closed-loop insulin feasible for inpatients needing nutritional support

Researchers show that closed-loop insulin delivery achieves markedly better glucose control than standard insulin management in hospitalized patients with hyperglycemia receiving enteral or parenteral nutrition.

ADA/EASD consensus report on managing hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes published

The final version of the 2018 update to the consensus guidelines on managing hyperglycemia in people with type 2 diabetes is now published.

Type 2 diabetes undiagnosed in a third of people with known hyperglycemia

A large proportion of people with documented hyperglycemia are still not clinically diagnosed with type 2 diabetes for up to 1 year later, US study data show.

Poor glycemic control may increase infection risk in diabetes patients

An analysis of the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink indicates that elevated glycated hemoglobin levels are associated with an increased risk for infection among patients with diabetes.

Household food insecurity linked to poor glycemic control

Young patients with type 1 diabetes who have inadequate access to nutritional food are more likely to have poor glycemic control than those from food-secure households, researchers report.

Diet quality intervention does not trigger disordered eating in adolescents

Research shows that intervening to improve the diet quality of adolescents with type 1 diabetes does not exacerbate disordered eating behavior.

12-22-2017 | Depression | News

Depression and severe dysglycemia increase the risk for each other

A bidirectional relationship between depression and severe dysglycemia exists among older people with type 1 diabetes, indicating a need for increased vigilance in this population.

Gene analysis identifies potential metformin alternative

Analysis of gene expression changes underlying excess glucose production in the liver has identified a drug – derived from broccoli – with a mechanism of action complementary to that of metformin.

04-17-2017 | Metformin | News

Early glycemic control key after metformin initiation

Patients with type 2 diabetes who experience a large reduction in glycated hemoglobin levels within 6 months of starting metformin therapy have a lower risk for adverse outcomes than those who do not achieve early glycemic control, study results suggest.

Predictive system reduces hypoglycemia burden in children with type 1 diabetes

Research suggests that a predictive low-glucose management system significantly reduces hypoglycemic events in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes.

04-05-2017 | Insulin aspart | News

Fast-acting insulin aspart offers promising glycemic control

Results of the Onset 1 trial confirm that treatment with fast-acting insulin aspart provides improves glycemic control compared with conventional insulin aspart among adults with type 1 diabetes.

Insulin pumps do not boost education effects on glycemic control

Research shows that switching to an insulin pump does not improve glycemic control in patients referred to an educational program after struggling to control their type 1 diabetes with multiple daily injections.

03-27-2017 | Inpatient diabetes | News

Remote monitoring may improve diabetes inpatient care

A study suggests that use of a virtual glucose management service can reduce hyper- and hypoglycemia among inpatients with diabetes by around a third.

02-17-2017 | Continuous glucose monitoring | News

Findings support standalone use of CGM in well-controlled type 1 diabetes

Results of a randomized trial suggest that continuous glucose monitoring can be used without regular confirmatory blood glucose monitoring among adult insulin pump users with well-controlled type 1 diabetes.

Raised glucose in normal range may have vascular consequences

Elevated blood glucose within the normal range is associated with increasing arterial stiffness over the long term in participants of the Whitehall II study.

Language barriers have mixed effect on diabetes management

Having a physician who speaks their native language is associated with improved glycemic control among diabetes patients with limited English proficiency, but may be less important for medication adherence, research suggests.
