J A McKnight, F W Gibb
The Freestyle Libre (Abbott Diabetes Care, Witney, UK) Flash Glucose Monitoring system was introduced in the UK in late 2014. It is not currently available on the National Health Service and is therefore marketed directly to people with diabetes. Use of the device has been associated with improvements in HbA1c in uncontrolled studies [1,2] and with reduced hypoglycaemia in a large randomized controlled trial [3].

Diabetes-related foot disease remains a common problem. For wounds, classic teaching recommends the treatment of any infection, offloading the wound and ensuring a good blood supply, as well as ensuring that the other modifiable risk factors are addressed and optimized. There remain, however, several questions about these and other aspects of the care of diabetes-related foot disease. Some of these questions are addressed in the present report; in particular, the impact of newer technologies in the identification of any organisms present in a wound, as well as the use of novel approaches to treat infections...

AIMS: To assess mortality and morbidity in the offspring of mothers with diabetes compared with a control cohort of offspring of mothers without diabetes. METHODS: The mortality rate, percentage of days admitted to hospital, diagnostic categories and incidence of diabetes mellitus among 691 offspring of mothers with diabetes were compared with a control group of 168 831 offspring not exposed to diabetes. Offspring of mothers with diabetes were identified from the North Jutland Pregnancy database (521 Type 1; 34 Type 2; 136 gestational diabetes) born between 1976 and 2003...

Armando Arredondo
According to Sortsø et al. [1], in Denmark, 59% of the economic burden due to diabetes is related to the direct costs of the disease and its complications, and 41% is attributable to lost productivity associated with diabetes. In Latin American countries, 45% of the total costs are due to diabetes and its complications, and 55% to lost productivity attributable to premature mortality, temporal disability and permanent disability [2]. The difference in the internal distribution of direct vs. indirect costs is similar; 18% in Denmark and 10% in Latin America...

Blood donation helps save lives, and is a service to humanity. Blood donation may also help improve the metabolic health of the donor, by reducing iron load on the pancreas and increasing insulin sensitivity [1,2]. However, there is a lack of clarity regarding the ability of a person with diabetes to donate blood. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

C S Hansen, J Fleischer, D Vistisen, M Ridderstråle, J S Jensen, M E Jørgensen
In his letter commenting on our research article 'High and low vitamin D is associated with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes', Kurtoglu argues that 5-min ECG recordings are not sufficient to assess spectral components of heart rate variability (HRV); however, in the Task Force recommendations referred to in his comment, the use of either 5-min measures or recordings of longer duration is recommended. It is possible to assess spectral components of HRV by using 5-min recordings...

E Kurtoglu
In their recent article, Hansen et al. [1] evaluated the association between vitamin D deficiency and heart rate variability (HRV) in patients with diabetes mellitus. Methods of quantifying HRV are basically categorized as: time domain and spectral or frequency domain. Traditionally, spectral variables such as low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) power have been analysed from standard 5-min ECG segments, while most laboratories require at least 18 h of usable data to calculate time domain variables, such as SDNN and RMSSD, in a 24-h recording...

Adolescence is a challenging period of life for any young person, and for those with Type 1 diabetes, physiological and psychological factors can result in a deterioration in glycaemic control. In young people with Type 1 diabetes, puberty may be an additional risk factor impacting on the lifetime risk for renal and cardiovascular complications. Our longitudinal studies have identified that increases in urinary albumin excretion through childhood are associated with the development of microalbuminuria and a generalized endotheliopathy linked to cardiovascular risk...

AIMS: A majority of children with Type 1 diabetes in Japan are registered with the government-subsidized Specified Pediatric Chronic Disease Treatment Research Projects (SPCDTRP). In this study, the incidence and prevalence of childhood-onset (< 15 years) Type 1 diabetes in Japan were estimated by drawing on SPCDTRP data. METHODS: Data available for 2005-2012 from the SPCDTRP and Statistics Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications were used to estimate the incidence of Type 1 diabetes for 2005-2010, adjusted to cover those registered within 3 years of disease onset and stratified by sex, age at onset and period of onset...

A Khan, I N Petropoulos, G Ponirakis, R A Malik
Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss in people with diabetes mellitus; however, other causes of visual impairment/loss include other retinal and non-retinal visual problems, including glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy and cataracts. Additionally, when a person with diabetes complains of visual disturbance despite a visual acuity of 6/6, abnormalities in refraction, contrast sensitivity, straylight and amplitude of accommodation should be considered...

S H Kim, G Reaven
Recent studies [1,2] in insulin-resistant individuals without diabetes have been unable to confirm previous findings [3] that salsalate, a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory salicylate derivative can enhance insulin sensitivity; however, failure to improve insulin sensitivity in overweight/obese, insulin-resistant individuals without diabetes should not necessarily lead to the conclusion that salsalate is without therapeutic potential in this population. Indeed, an argument can be made that administration of salsalate may be of unique benefit to such individuals; that is, those who are overweight/obese and insulin-resistant before gross decompensation of glucose tolerance, but at increased risk of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease...
