BACKGROUND: Diabetes Mellitus is one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States and worldwide. In 2009 the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommended using A1C greater than 6.5% to diagnose diabetes. Hemoglobin A1C can be measured by laboratory and Point-of-Care (POC) methods. It is important to compare results obtained by the two modalities to determine the proper use of these tests. METHODS: One hundred fifteen patients were identified to have both POC and laboratory A1C values obtained on the same day, between August 2013 and August 2014...

196 Background: Natural language processing (NLP) has the potential to significantly ease the burden of manual abstraction of unstructured electronic text when measuring adherence to national guidelines. We incorporated NLP into standard data processing techniques such as manual abstraction and database queries in order to more efficiently evaluate a regional oncology clinic's adherence to ASCO's Choosing Wisely colony stimulating factor (CSF) recommendation using clinical, billing, and cancer registry data...

BACKGROUND: In August 2011, the Specialized Center for Diabetes and Pregnancy of the Botucatu Medical School/Unesp adopted a new diagnostic protocol for gestational diabetes mellitus, recommended by the American Diabetes Association and the International Association of the Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Group. The glycemic profile was evaluated using the 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) used to diagnose mild gestational hyperglycemia, recognized and treated in our department as gestational diabetes mellitus...

AIMS: To estimate recent secular changes in the incidence and prevalence of diabetes and pre-diabetes among Hong Kong Chinese adults, and thus show possible future trends for developing mainland China. METHODS: Based on a complete census of the public sector health records of 6.4 million people from 2006 to 2014, diabetes cases were ascertained using different methods including the World Health Organization (WHO) 2011 guidelines (HbA1c , fasting plasma glucose and glucose tolerance test), American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2015 guidelines (plus random plasma glucose), and additionally recorded diagnosis codes and medication dispensation...

Personalized medicine in diabetes is a topic which has gained significant momentum in recent years (Raz et al. 2013). A rapid rise in the number and combinations of diabetes therapies coupled with an unprecedented rise in diabetes prevalence rates has necessitated diabetes guidelines which emphasize the need for personalized patient-centered care (ADA 2014). There are many questions regarding the role genetics may be able to play in guiding therapy. Recent pharmacogenetic research has revealed polymorphisms that may impact patient response to metformin (Dong et al 2011) and glucagon-like-polypeptide-1 therapies (Smushkin et al...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The global increase in childhood obesity has in some countries been followed by an increase in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM); however, the prevalence of T2DM among Danish children and adolescents is currently unknown. The aims of this cross-sectional study were to determine the prevalence of T2DM in children and adolescents in Denmark together with status on treatment, metabolic control, and late diabetic complications. METHODS: Individuals were identified in the Danish Registry for Diabetes in Children and Adolescents (DanDiabKids), and clinical information regarding these was obtained from the respective pediatric departments...

BACKGROUND: The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends combined diet and physical activity promotion programs for people at increased risk of type 2 diabetes, as evidence continues to show that intensive lifestyle interventions are effective for overweight individuals with prediabetes. PURPOSE: To illustrate the potential clinical and economic benefits of treating prediabetes with lifestyle intervention to prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes and sequelae...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a process improvement strategy that increased the identification of individuals with poorly controlled diabetes (glycated hemoglobin [A1C] ≥8%) undergoing elective surgery at a major academic medical center and increased their access to specialist care. METHODS: An algorithm was developed to ensure A1C measurements were obtained as per the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists/American Diabetes Association (AACE/ADA) guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Type II diabetes and its complications can sometimes be prevented, if identified and treated early. One fifth of diabetics in the U.S. remain undiagnosed. Commonly used screening guidelines are inconsistent. PURPOSE: To examine the optimal age cut-point for opportunistic universal screening, compared to targeted screening, which is recommended by U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines. METHODS: Cross-sectional analysis of a nationally representative sample from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2007-2010...
