Mol Metab 2021 Jun 8:101269. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Division of Molecular Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA; Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA; Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Program, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA. Electronic address:

Objective: Throughout the last decade, interest has intensified in intermittent fasting, ketogenic diets, and exogenous ketone therapies as prospective health-promoting, therapeutic, and performance-enhancing agents. However, the regulatory roles of ketogenesis and ketone metabolism on liver homeostasis remain unclear. Therefore, we sought to develop a better understanding of the metabolic consequences of hepatic ketone body metabolism by focusing on the redox-dependent interconversion of acetoacetate (AcAc) and D-β-hydroxybutyrate (D-βOHB).

Patient Reported Outcomes in a Randomized Trial of Closed-Loop Control: The Pivotal International Diabetes Closed Loop Trial.

Diabetes Technol Ther 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

University of Virginia, Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences, Charlottesville, Virginia, United States;

Background: Closed-Loop Control (CLC) has been shown to improve glucose time in range and other glucose metrics; however, randomized trials longer than 3 months comparing CLC with sensor-augmented pump (SAP) therapy are limited. We recently reported glucose control outcomes from the 6-month international Diabetes Closed Loop (iDCL) trial; we now report patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in this iDCL trial.

Methods: Participants were randomized 2:1 to CLC (N=112) versus SAP (N=56) and completed questionnaires including Hypoglycemia Fear Survey, Diabetes Distress Scale (DDS), Hypoglycemia Awareness, Hypoglycemia Confidence, Hyperglycemia Avoidance, and Positive Expectancies of CLC (INSPIRE) at baseline, 3, and 6 months.

The Optimising Cardiac Surgery ouTcOmes in People with diabeteS (OCTOPuS) randomised controlled trial to evaluate an outpatient pre-cardiac surgery diabetes management intervention: a study protocol.

BMJ Open 2021 Jun 9;11(6):e050919. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Wessex Institute, University of Southampton, Southampton, Hampshire, UK.

Introduction: Cardiothoracic surgical outcomes are poorer in people with diabetes compared with those without diabetes. There are two important uncertainties in the management of people with diabetes undergoing major surgery: (1) how to improve diabetes management in the weeks leading up to an elective procedure and (2) whether that improved management leads to better postoperative outcomes. We previously demonstrated the feasibility of delivering the Optimising Cardiac Surgery ouTcOmes in People with diabeteS (OCTOPuS) intervention, an outpatient intervention delivered by diabetes healthcare professionals for people with suboptimally managed diabetes over 8-12 weeks before elective cardiac surgery.

Autopsy case of fatal hypoglycemia following ingestion of a therapeutic dose of tramadol.

Forensic Sci Med Pathol 2021 Jun 9. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Department of Forensic Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health Japan, Iseigaoka 1-1, Yahatanishi, Kitakyushu, Japan.

An 86-year-old female was found unconscious the day after taking a prescribed tablet containing a combination of tramadol and acetaminophen. At admission to the hospital, marked hypoglycemia (blood glucose: 4 mg/dL) was confirmed, but serum insulin and C-peptide were within the normal range, which suggested that neither endogenous hyperinsulinemia nor exogenous insulin administration was responsible for the hypoglycemia. Despite resuscitation efforts, the woman subsequently died. Read More
