REVIEW
Christopher J D McKinlay, J Geoffrey Chase, Jennifer Dickson, Deborah L Harris, Jane M Alsweiler, Jane E Harding
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is well established in the management of diabetes mellitus, but its role in neonatal glycaemic control is less clear. CGM has provided important insights about neonatal glucose metabolism, and there is increasing interest in its clinical use, particularly in preterm neonates and in those in whom glucose control is difficult. Neonatal glucose instability, including hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia, has been associated with poorer neurodevelopment, and CGM offers the possibility of adjusting treatment in real time to account for individual metabolic requirements while reducing the number of blood tests required, potentially improving long-term outcomes...

Yuying Liang, Xin Jin, Yuan Huang, Shuiping Chen
BACKGROUND: crAssphage is a novel and by far the most abundant bacteriophage in human gut. This bacteriophage might modulate gut microbiota balance so as to be involved in some diseases like obesity, diabetes, metabolic disorders, hypertension, and cancer. Therefore, a rapid and reliable detection and quantification method for crAssphage is essential for studying its molecular epidemiology and pathogenicity in human diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The primers-probes set for the quantitative real-time PCR assay was designed based on the DNA polymerase gene (ORF00018) of crAssphage...

Pistachio is a nut with high polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), polyphenols and carotenoids content, and the synergism between these compounds appears to affect glucose metabolism. In this systematic review we analyzed studies in which the effect of chronic consumption of pistachio on markers of glucose metabolism was evaluated in pre-diabetic and type 2 diabetics. We used the PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane and Lilacs databases. The research terms used were pistachio, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, blood glucose, hyperglycemia and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c)...

BACKGROUND: Today, more than 90% of adolescents with chronic conditions are surviving into adulthood and move pediatric to adult care with their chronic illness. It is important to gain autonomy and ensure readiness for adolescents/ young adults to use the adult health care system prior to the transfer of care. However, the lack of the transition readiness assessment tool which is validated, patient-centered and appropriate to developmental differences in pediatric care is seen a major obstacle for transition of care from pediatric to adult services...

BACKGROUND: Studying comorbidities of disorders is important for detection and prevention. For discovering frequent patterns of diseases we can use retrospective analysis of population data, by filtering events with common properties and similar significance. Most frequent pattern mining methods do not consider contextual information about extracted patterns. Further data mining developments might enable more efficient applications in specific tasks like comorbidities identification. METHODS: We propose a cascade data mining approach for frequent pattern mining enriched with context information, including a new algorithm MIxCO for maximal frequent patterns mining...

BACKGROUND: Self-care is essential for patients with diabetes mellitus. Both clinicians and researchers must be able to assess the quality of that self-care. Available tools have various limitations and none are theoretically based. The aims of this study were to develop and to test the psychometric properties of a new instrument based on the middle range-theory of self-care of chronic illness: the Self-Care of Diabetes Inventory (SCODI). METHODS: Forty SCODI items (5 point Likert type scale) were developed based on clinical recommendations and grouped into 4 dimensions: self-care maintenance, self-care monitoring, self-care management and self-care confidence based on the theory...

BACKGROUND: Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is one of the laboratory tests recommended by the ADA to screen for diabetes mellitus (DM). It is particularly suitable for population segments that cannot or are unwilling to fast for a screening test. Our study aims to determine if HbA1c would be a useful tool to screen for DM in a real world setting if ADA guidelines for repeat testing to confirm the diagnosis of DM are strictly adhered to. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective database study by extracting demographic and laboratory data from a chronic disease registry which collects data on adults from three tertiary hospitals and nine large primary care clinics in Singapore...

BACKGROUND: Thousands of mobile health (mHealth) apps have been developed to support patients' management of their health, but the effectiveness of many of the apps remains unclear. While mHealth apps appear to hold promise for improving the self-management of chronic conditions across populations, failure to balance the system demands of the app with the needs, interests, or resources of the end users can undermine consumers' adoption of these technologies. OBJECTIVE: The original aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a commercial mHealth app in improving clinical outcomes for adult patients in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with uncontrolled diabetes and/or hypertension...
