Hybrid closed loop (or automated insulin delivery systems) and artificial pancreas technology will dramatically change the quality of life for people living with diabetes. However, this technology is not a cure. Without having expectations set, patients may assume that APs will replace critical self-care behaviors. It is important for patients to understand several key things before choosing to adopt and switching to APs for diabetes management. Like any technology, APs will have a learning curve. But like switching from MDI to standard pump therapy, it is not insurmountable...

The article titled "Seven Year Surveillance of the Clinical Performance of a Blood Glucose Test-Strip Product" by Setford and coworkers in this issue of Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology is an impressive study showing that over 7 years in three clinics, using multiple reagent lots, a total of 73 600 samples met the ISO 15197 2015 standard with no results in the D or E zones of a Parkes glucose meter error grid. Three requirements are suggested for a clinically acceptable glucose meter. The authors provide strong evidence for meeting two requirements but fail to provide summarized data about the number of nonnumeric results...

Technology for diabetes care has undergone major development during recent decades. These technological advances include continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), also known as insulin pumps, and real-time continuous glucose monitoring system (RT-CGMS). The integration of CSII and RT-CGMS into a single device has led to sensor-augmented pump therapy and more recently, a technology that has automated delivery of basal insulin therapy, known as hybrid system. These new technologies have led to benefits in attaining better metabolic control and decreasing the incidence of severe hypoglycemia, especially in patients with type 1 diabetes...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) and small vessel (SV) disease are two major predictors of adverse outcome in patients treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), even when last generation metallic drug-eluting stents (DES) are used. Bioresorbable scaffold (BRS) technology has been recently developed to overcome the disadvantages of metallic DES due to their permanent struts. Through the resorption process, BRS may provide a vascular restoration that appears very attractive especially when distal or diffusely diseased coronary segments are involved, as in diabetic patients and SV disease...

Theoretically, identifying prediabetics would reduce the diabetic burden on the American healthcare system. As we expect the prevalence rate of prediabetes to continue increasing, we wonder if there is a better way of managing prediabetics and reducing the economic cost on the healthcare system. To do so, understanding the demographics and behavioral factors of known prediabetics was important. For this purpose, responses of prediabetic/borderline diabetes patients from the most recent publicly available 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey were analyzed...

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has been shown to exert various potential physiological properties including anti-carcinogenic, anti-obesity, anti-cardiovascular and anti-diabetic activities, and consequently has been considered as a promising food supplement. Bacterial biosynthesis of CLA is an attractive approach for commercial production due to its high isomer-selectivity and convenient purification process. Many bacterial species have been reported to convert free linoleic acid (LA) to CLA, hitherto only the precise CLA-producing mechanisms in Propionibacterium acnes and Lactobacillus plantarum have been illustrated completely, prompting the development of recombinant technology used in CLA production...

Continuous and long-term monitoring of cellular and micro-organ activity is required for new insights into physiology and novel technologies such as Organs-on-Chip. Moreover, recent advances in stem cell technology and especially in the field of diabetes call for non-invasive approaches in quality testing of the large quantities of surrogate pancreatic islets to be generated. Electrical activity of such a micro-organ results in single cell action potentials (APs) of high frequency and in low frequency changes in local field potentials (slow potentials or SPs), reflecting coupled cell activity and overall organ physiology...

While the β-cells of the endocrine pancreas are defined as cells with high levels of insulin production and tight stimulus-secretion coupling, the existence of functional heterogeneity among them has been known for decades. Recent advances in molecular technologies, in particular single-cell profiling on both the protein and messenger RNA level, have uncovered that β-cells exist in several antigenically and molecularly definable states. Using antibodies to cell surface markers or multidimensional clustering of β-cells using more than 20 protein markers by mass cytometry, 4 distinct groups of β-cells could be differentiated...

Overcoming sensor induced tissue reactions is an essential element of achieving successful continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in the management of diabetes, particularly when used in closed loop technology. Recently, we demonstrated that basement membrane (BM) based glucose sensor coatings significantly reduced tissue reactions at sites of device implantation. However, the biocompatible BM based bio-hydrogel sensor coating rapidly degraded over a less than a three-week period, which effectively eliminated the protective sensor coating...

Diabetes care is largely dependent on patient self-management and empowerment, given that patients with diabetes must make numerous daily decisions of what to eat, when to exercise, and determine their insulin dose and timing if required. Additionally, patients and providers are generating vast amounts of data from many sources including electronic medical records, insulin pumps, sensors, glucometers, other wearables, as well as evolving genomic, proteomic, metabolomic and microbiomic data. Multiple digital tools and apps have been developed to assist patients to choose wisely, as well as enhance their compliance by employing motivational tools and incorporating incentives from social media and gaming techniques...

BACKGROUND: Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is reported to be a useful technique, but difficult or inconvenient for some patients and institutions. We are developing a glucose area under the curve (AUC) monitoring system without blood sampling using a minimally invasive interstitial fluid extraction technology (MIET). Here we evaluated the accuracy of interstitial fluid glucose (IG) AUC measured by MIET in patients with diabetes for an extended time interval and the potency of detecting hyperglycemia using CGM data as a reference...

Patients with complex chronic diseases usually must make multiple lifestyle changes to limit and manage their conditions. Numerous studies have shown that education alone is insufficient for engaging people in lifestyle behavior change, and that theory-based behavioral approaches also are necessary. However, even the most motivated individual may have difficulty with making lifestyle changes because of the information complexity associated with multiple behavior changes. The goal of the current Healthy Hearts and Kidneys study was to evaluate, different mobile health (mHealth)-delivered intervention approaches for engaging individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and concurrent chronic kidney disease (CKD) in behavior changes...

Type 1 diabetes requires intensive self-management to avoid acute and long-term health complications. In the past two decades, substantial advances in technology have enabled more effective and convenient self-management of type 1 diabetes. Although proximal technologies (eg, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors, closed-loop and artificial pancreas systems) have been the subject of frequent systematic and narrative reviews, distal technologies have received scant attention. Distal technologies refer to electronic systems designed to provide a service remotely and include heterogeneous systems such as telehealth, mobile health applications, game-based support, social platforms, and patient portals...

Islet transplantation for the treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D) is hampered by the shortage of donor tissue and the need for life-long immunosuppression. The engineering of materials to limit host immune rejection opens the possibilities of utilising allogeneic and even xenogeneic cells without the need for systemic immunosuppression. Here we discuss the most recent developments in immunoisolation of transplanted cells using advanced polymeric biomaterials, utilising macroscale to nanoscale approaches, to limit aberrant immune responses...
