Evaluation of clinical metrics for identifying defective physiologic responses to hypoglycemia in long-standing type 1 diabetes.

Diabetes Technol Ther 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, 14640, Institute for Diabetes, Obesity & Metabolism, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States.

Repeated hypoglycemia exposure leads to impaired awareness of hypoglycemia (IAH) and the development of defective counterregulatory responses. To date, only pancreas or islet transplantation has demonstrated normalization of hypoglycemia awareness and the endogenous glucose production (EGP) response to defend against insulin-induced hypoglycemia in long-standing type 1 diabetes (T1D). This study aims to validate clinical metrics of IAH (Clarke score), hypoglycemia severity (HYPO score), glycemic lability (lability index), and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) as predictors of absent autonomic symptom recognition and defective glucose counterregulation during insulin-induced hypoglycemia, thus enabling early identification of individuals with compromised physiologic defence against clinically significant hypoglycemia.

Helpful or harmful? The impact of the ketogenic diet on eating disorder outcomes in type 1 diabetes mellitus.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2022 Jun 24:1-13. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Division of Biomedical Sciences, Warwick Medical School, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK.

Introduction: Eating disorders (EDs) are common complications in people with type 1 diabetes (PwT1D), given the rigid focus on food and insulin dose adjustment. Dietary recommendations for T1D match those for the general population, yet many fail to achieve target HbA1c. Evidence suggests that lower carbohydrate meals and thus reduced insulin requirements may decrease inconsistencies in insulin absorption, maintain euglycemia and weight. Read More

Early and Strong Leptin Reduction Is Predictive for Long-Term Weight Loss during High-Protein, Low-Glycaemic Meal Replacement-A Subanalysis of the Randomised-Controlled ACOORH Trial.

Nutrients 2022 Jun 18;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 18.

Faculty of Medicine, University of Freiburg, 79117 Freiburg, Germany.

Lifestyle interventions including meal replacement are suitable for prevention and treatment of obesity and type-2-diabetes. Since leptin is involved in weight regulation, we hypothesised that a meal replacement-based lifestyle intervention would reduce leptin levels more effectively than lifestyle intervention alone. In the international, multicentre, randomised-controlled ACOORH-trial (Almased-Concept-against-Overweight-and-Obesity-and-Related- Health-Risk), overweight or obese participants with metabolic syndrome criteria ( = 463) were randomised into two groups and received telemonitoring devices and nutritional advice.

Disruption of Fetal Eye Development Caused by Insulin-induced Maternal Hypoglycemia in Rats.

Reprod Toxicol 2022 Jun 20. Epub 2022 Jun 20.

Medicinal Safety Research Laboratories, Daiichi Sankyo Co., Ltd., 1-16-13 Kita-Kasai, Edogawa-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

We previously revealed that insulin-induced severe and long-lasting maternal hypoglycemia in rats caused anophthalmia and microphthalmia in fetuses; however, it remained unclear whether hypoglycemia-induced eye anomalies were developmental retardation or disruption, and when and how they developed. Hence, we induced hypoglycemia in pregnant Sprague-Dawley rats by injecting insulin from Days 6 to 11 of pregnancy and performed periodical histopathological examination of fetal eyes from embryonic days (E)10 to 20. On E10, optic vesicle had developed normally both in the control and insulin-treated group; however, on E11, optic cup (OC) had developed in the control group but not in the insulin-treated group.

Closed-Loop Insulin Delivery Systems: Past, Present, and Future Directions.

Sophie Templer

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 6;13:919942. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Department of Endocrinology, St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Closed-loop (artificial pancreas) systems for automated insulin delivery have been likened to the holy grail of diabetes management. The first iterations of glucose-responsive insulin delivery were pioneered in the 1960s and 1970s, with the development of systems that used venous glucose measurements to dictate intravenous infusions of insulin and dextrose in order to maintain normoglycemia. Only recently have these bulky, bedside technologies progressed to miniaturized, wearable devices. Read More
