Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a common disease encountered in canine and feline medicine. The 2018 AAHA Diabetes Management Guidelines for Dogs and Cats revise and update earlier guidelines published in 2010. The 2018 guidelines retain much of the information in the earlier guidelines that continues to be applicable in clinical practice, along with new information that represents current expert opinion on controlling DM. An essential aspect of successful DM management is to ensure that the owner of a diabetic dog or cat is capable of administering insulin, recognizing the clinical signs of inadequately managed DM, and monitoring blood glucose levels at home, although this is ideal but not mandatory; all topics that are reviewed in the guidelines...

Diabetes is a common long-term condition affecting many people many of whom require support with their insulin injections at home. These injections are often carried out by community nurses if individuals are unable to self-manage their condition. This paper describes a pilot project where health care support workers were trained to administer insulin at home for suitable patients. Four patients took part in the pilot study and two support workers were trained to give the insulin injections. The project was evaluated well by all those who took part...

BACKGROUND: The Mediterranean diet is characterised by the high consumption of extra virgin olive oil, fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and nuts; moderate consumption of fish, poultry, eggs and dairy; and low consumption of red meat and sweets. Cross sectional, longitudinal and intervention studies indicate that a Mediterranean diet may be effective for the prevention of cardiovascular disease and dementia. However, previous research suggests that an Australian population may find red meat restrictions difficult, which could affect long term sustainability of the diet...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: This study compared the accuracy of the FreeStyle Libre (Abbott, Alameda, CA) and Dexcom G4 Platinum (DG4P, Dexcom, San Diego, CA) CGM sensors. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-two adults with type 1 diabetes wore the two sensors simultaneously for 2 weeks. Libre was used according to manufacturer-specified lifetime (MSL); DG4P was used 7 days beyond MSL. At a clinical research center (CRC), subjects were randomized to receive the same breakfast with standard insulin bolus (standard) or a delayed and increased (delayed & increased) bolus to induce large glucose swings during weeks 1 and 2; venous glucose was checked every 5-15 min for 6 h...

Sleep restriction is associated with impaired glucose metabolism and insulin resistance, however, the underlying mechanisms leading to this impairment are unknown. This study aimed to assess whether the decrease in insulin sensitivity observed after sleep restriction is accompanied by changes in skeletal muscle PKB activity. Ten healthy young males participated in this randomized crossover study which included two conditions separated by a 3-week washout period. Participants underwent two nights of habitual sleep (CON) and two nights of sleep which was restricted to 50% of habitual sleep duration (SR) in the home environment...

Background: Primary care clinicians will see a higher incidence of type 2 diabetes in adult patients, and the diagnosis and management of an initial presentation of type 1 diabetes can pose challenges to clinicians who see it less frequently. Symptoms of hyperglycemia and risk of ketoacidosis may be missed. Further, endocrine autoimmune disease can run together in patients and families. Case presentation: A 49-year-old Caucasian female with history of pituitary adenoma and Graves' disease with history of thyroid ablation presented in the outpatient setting due to hand tingling of her right middle finger that was worse in the mornings and improved throughout the day...

AIMS: Metformin treatment is associated with a decrease of serum vitamin B12, but whether this reflects tissue B12 deficiency is controversial. We studied the effects of metformin on serum levels of methylmalonic acid (MMA), a biomarker for tissue B12 deficiency, and on onset or progression of neuropathy. METHODS: In the HOME trial, 390 insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes were treated with metformin or placebo for 52months. In a post hoc analysis, we analyzed the association between metformin, MMA and a validated Neuropathy Score (NPS)...

BACKGROUND: There is a paucity of studies on transitions from IV insulin infusion (IVII) to subcutaneous (SC) insulin in the medical ICU (MICU). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of patients admitted to the Cleveland Clinic MICU from June 2013 to January 2014 who received IVII. We compared blood glucose (BG) control between 3 cohorts based on timing of basal insulin dose: (1) NB (no basal), (2) IB (incorrect basal), (3) CB (correct basal) at 5 time points post-IVII discontinuation (1, 4, 8, 12, and 24h)...

We report the case of a girl of 5 and a half months admitted for discomfort and consciousness loss at home and supported on sudden infant death protocol. Workup was negative. Autopsy showed only signs of asphyxia. Microscopic examination of the pancreas showed hypertrophic beta cells of Langerhans islets, explaining death linked to severe hypoglycemia by inappropriate insulin hypersecretion. This observation highlights the importance of the management of sudden infant unexpected death according to the protocol of the National Health Authority, which includes an autopsy with complete sampling, which in this case resulted in a diagnosis of unknown disease the lifetime of the child...

AIMS: In type 1 diabetes (T1D), repeated hypoglycemic episodes may reduce hormonal defenses and increase the risk for severe hypoglycemia. In this work, we investigate the effect of a structured hyper/hypoglycemic metabolic challenge on the postintervention glucose variability in T1D subjects studied at home. METHODS: Thirty T1D subjects using insulin pump were monitored with blood glucose meters (SMBG) during a 1-month observation period. After 2 weeks of monitoring, participants were admitted at the University of Virginia Clinical Research Unit to undergo an 8-hour metabolic challenge...

Third-hand smoke (THS) is a newly discovered environmental health hazard that results from accumulation and aging of second-hand smoke (SHS) toxins on surfaces where smoking has occurred. Our objective was to determine whether there is a time-dependent effect of THS exposure on health. Using an in vivo exposure mouse system that mimics exposure of humans to THS, we investigated its effects on biomarkers found in serum, and in liver and brain tissues. Mice were exposed to THS for 1, 2, 4, or 6 months and brain, liver, and serum were collected...
