The Use of Modern Technologies to Optimize Diabetes Care

Kordonouri Olga

The gold standard for the treatment of Type 1 diabetes in children and adolescents is the intensified insulin therapy using either multiple daily injections (MDI) or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) pump according to the basal-bolus-principle. Blood glucose measurement is the mainstay of diabetes management, guiding insulin dosing decisions and monitoring glycemic control. New technological advances including subcutaneous continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), eit...

Use of Apps for Physical Activity in Type 1 Diabetes

Kordonouri Olga

Global growth in the use of mobile phones, the so-called smartphones, makes them a powerful platform to help provide tailored health, delivered conveniently to patients. These devices are developing rapidly mainly with regard to information processing, design, features and connectivity with other devices. Modern treatment and monitoring of type 1 diabetes is being supported by rapid evolving technology as pumps for continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion and sensors for conti...

Blood Glucose Monitoring: Which is Better: Continuous Real-Time or Episodic Real-Time on Demand? CON

Kordonouri Olga

Background: Self-monitoring of blood glucose is an essential tool in the optimal management of childhood and adolescent diabetes. In the last 15 years, an extraordinary development of reliable devices for real-time continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has taken place. Meanwhile, several trials in adults and children showed that CGM can be associated with improved glycaemic control, significant reduction of hypoglycaemia and better quality of life, particularly in those patients...

Aim: To examine the prevalence of endocrine abnormalities and outcome in children and adolescents with Anorexia nervosa (AN).Methods: The study cohort consisted of 181 patients (age 14.6±1.9 years; 160 girls, 21 boys) with AN (n=137), atypical AN (n=6) and other eating disorders except of Bulimia (n=38) who were hospitalized between Jan 2010 and Feb 2013. Somatometric [body-mass-index (BMI), BMI-SDS] and endocrine parameters were a...

Trends in Insulin Therapy in 50 861 Children and Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes from Austria and Germany Between 2000 and 2014

Bohn Barbara , Wiegand Susanna , Kummer Sebastian , Menzel Ulrike , Kordonouri Olga , Bottcher Claudia , Frohlich-Reiterer Elke , Holl Reinhard W.

Background: Over the last two decades, treatment of type 1 diabetes became more intensified and changes in the type of insulin used were reported.Objective and hypotheses: We hypothesised that there are also changes in insulin dosage and in the ratio of prandial to basal insulin. Our aim was to analyse potential trends in paediatric subjects with type 1 diabetes from Austria and Germany between 2000 and 2014.Method: 50 861 subjects...
