mHealth app for Young People with Diabetes Type 1 Transferring from Pediatric to Adult Care

Teilmann Grete , Boisen Kirsten , Hommel Eva , Olsen Birthe , Pedersen-Bjergaard Ulrik , Castensoe-Seidenfaden Pernille

Background: Managing diabetes requires self-care, knowledge and support – especially when moving from pediatric to adult care. Finding ways to empower young people in transition and transfer is therefore important.Objective: To develop, test and evaluate a mHealth app for young people with diabetes type 1 transferring from pediatric to adult care.Method: Development: We developed an app-prototype based on rapid prototyping and...

Holding the Horses of Insulin Pump Infusion: Usage and Effectiveness of the Low Glucose Suspend Feature During Fasting in Ramadan Among Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus to Prevent Hypoglycemia

Elbarbary Nancy

Background and aim: Severe hypoglycemic episodes during the daytime of Ramadan fasting is the most feared complication. Sensor-augmented pump therapy with insulin in combination with automatic insulin shutoff (low glucose suspend (LGS)) can be used to reduce hypoglycemia. In a prospective observational study, we investigated the effect of the LGS algorithm on the frequency of hypoglycemia in adolescents with type 1 diabetes who wished to fast Ramadan 2013.<p class="abstext...

DKA During Diabetes Therapy: Multinational Comparison with 59 191 Pediatric Patients from England, Wales, The United States, Austria and Germany

Warner Justin , Hermann Julia , Kapellen Thomas , Hofer Sabine , Dubose Stephanie , Schatz Des , Beck Roy , Schweiger Claudia , Maahs David , Holl Reinhard

Background: DKA in children and adolescents with established type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a major problem with considerable cost to patients, families and health care systems. Many consider it as a quality of care indicator and a failure of relationship between the care provider and the family/patient. Considerable variability in rates are recognized. We analyzed multicenter registry and audit data from five countries with similarly advanced, yet differing, health care systems.</p...

Children and Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes have Higher Plasma Visfatin Levels than Healthy Controls

Hontzsch Julia , Jasser-Nitsche Hildegard , Grillitsch Marlene , Suppan Elisabeth , Weinhandl Gudrun , Riedl Regina , Barowitsch Christine , Borkenstein Martin , Frohlich-Reiterer Elke

Background: The aim of this study was to examine plasma visfatin levels in pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Visfatin, a novel adipokine, is predominantly secreted by visceral adipose tissue and seems to have insulin-mimetic effects. It has not been studied in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) yet.Objectives: We studied 124 subjects; 62 patients with T1D: 31 girls, mean age 13.7±3.7 years; mean duration of diabetes 5.9...

Algorithm-Based Cholesterol Monitoring in Children with Type 1 Diabetes

Schwab K Otfried , Doerfer Juergen , Scheidt-Nave Christa , Kurth Barbel-Maria , Hungele Andreas , Scheuing Nicole , Krebs Andreas , Dost Axel , Rohrer Tilman R , Schober Edith , Holl Reinhard W

Background: Lipid profiles of type 1 diabetic children are influenced by age, sex, BMI- and HbA1c-values. There is a discrepancy between increased cholesterol levels and the management required. Thus, 26% of patients have dyslipidemia but only 0.4% of them receive lipid lowering medication.Objective and hypothesis: To facilitate child-specific and diabetes-related cholesterol control, we developed a monitoring algorithm derived from population-based refe...

Implementation of Effective Transition from Paediatric to Adult Diabetes Care with an Outpatient Transition Nurse

Elowe-Gruau Eglantine , Aquarone Marie-Paule , Schluter Virginie , Stoppa-Vaucher Sophie , Phan-Hug Franziska , Dwyer Andrew , Pitteloud Nelly , Hauschild Michael

Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder requiring daily care to prevent both acute and chronic complications. Intensive support to facilitate coping and self-care skills is advocated. Healthcare providers are challenged to manage the transition of adolescents from paediatric to adult diabetes services.Objective and hypotheses: While centres providing structured integrated paediatric and adult care seem optimal, many patients op...

The Natural Evolution of Impaired Glucose Homeostasis Among Obese Adolescents in a High – Risk Diabetes Prone Population

Zuckerman-Levin Nehama , Pasternak Idit , Najjar Sami , Hermoni Doron , Shehadeh Naim

Background: Obesity is increasing worldwide among adults, children and adolescents. The increase in obesity rates facilitated the development of several morbidities including impairment in glucose homeostasis. T2DM is described mainly among minority groups, and in Israel it is more frequent among the Arab population.Objective and hypotheses: We hypothesized that a correlation exists between the degree of obesity and impaired glucose homeostasis among Ara...

Improved Health-related Quality of Life with Insulin Therapy in Children with Cystic Fibrosis-related Diabetes: a Prospective Cohort Study

George Sherly , Hoey Hilary M C V , Costigan Colm , Murphy Nuala , Roche Edna F , O'Riordan Stephen M P

Background: Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is a common complication in cystic fibrosis (CF). CFRD symptoms and treatment may impose additional burden and adversely affect their QoL.Objective and hypotheses: Assess HRQoL in CF children with normal glycaemia (CFN) and CFRD and evaluate the change in HRQoL over 1 year period along with clinical changes.Method: A prospective study was undertaken including children aged 10&#150...

Nutritional Status and Respiratory Function in Patients Affected by Cystic Fibrosis and Glucose Metabolism Derangements after 4 Years of Insulin Therapy with Glargine

Mozzillo Enza , Raia Valeria , Fattorusso Valentina , Cerrato Carla , De Nitto Elena , De Gregorio Fabiola , Sepe Angela , Valerio Giuliana , Franzese Adriana

Background: The glucose metabolism derangements (GMD) can have an important impact on nutritional status and respiratory function in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF).Objective and hypotheses: The aim of our study is to evaluate the effects of 4 years of glargine therapy in patients affected by CF and GMD.Method: All CF patients attended to the Center of Cystic Fibrosis of our department were screened by oral glucose tolerance tes...

Background: Evidence of the association between vitamin D, insulin resistance and oral disposition index (oDI) in obese children and adolescents is limited.Objective and hypotheses: We investigated serum 25(OH)D levels in obese children and adolescents in Zhejiang, China, and determined the relationship between serum 25(OH)D and glucose metabolism.Method: A cross-sectional design was used. All together 348 obese and 445 non-obese c...
