The impact of the timing of humalog mix25 injections on blood glucose fluctuations in the postprandial period in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes( )

Bacground: Postprandial hyperglycemia contributes to glycation of hemoglobin A1c and has been associated with cardiovascular risk in people with diabetes. We investigated the impact of injection timing of Humalog Mix25 (Mix25, known as Humalog Mix75/25 in the U.S.: 25% insulin lispro and 75% neutral protamine lispro) on glycemia and postprandial blood glucose (BG) excursions in elderly individuals Material/Methods: Seventy-three patients aged 60 to 80 years were randomized to Mix25 (Mix25 group, 37 participants) or a continuation with maximum dose glibenclamide (control group, 36 participants). The Mix25 group was subdivided into a group of 18 patients who were injecting insulin after meals and 19 who were injecting before. Results: At baseline, the absolute postprandial BG concentrations and postprandial BG excursions after breakfast were high (Mix25 group: 15.3+/-4.8 mmol/l and 3.5+/-2.7 mmol/l, respectively; controls: 15.4+/-3.9 mmol/l and 4.7+/-2.7 mmol/l, respectively). In both groups improvement was observed at the endpoint, but it was greater with Mix25(Mix25 group: 10.3+/-3.6 mmol/l, p<0.0001 vs. baseline, p<0.003 vs. controls, and 2.0+/-2.5 mmol/l, p<0.008 vs. baseline, p=ns vs. controls; control group: 13.3+/-2.9 mmol/l, p<0.006 vs. baseline, and 4.7+/-2.7 mmol/l, p<0.006 vs. baseline). The two Mix25 subgroups had similar postprandial BG levels and BG excursions after breakfast. Conclusion: Mix25 improves postprandial BG and yields a greater effect on BG excursions compared with monotherapy with glibenclamide. The timing of Mix25 did not impact the level of BG or BG fluctuations after meals, which may be important for individuals with changing dietary pattern

Treatment of hyperfunctioning thyroid nodules with ultrasound guided percutanous ethanol injection - 30 months experience = Zdravljenje hiperfunkcijskih ščitničnih nodusov z ultrazvočno vodenim perkutanim vbrizgavanjem etanola - 30-mesečne izkušnje( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Izhodišča. V članku predstavljamo svojo tehniko perkutanega vbrizgavanja etanola in rezultate po 30 mesecih zdravljenja ter jih primerjamo z rezultati, objavljenimi v literaturi. Bolniki in metode. Metodo perkutanega vbrizgavanja etanola smo uporabili na 40 bolnikih (37 žensk, 3 moški, starost od 28 do 76 let); od teh je bil pri 35 bolnikih ugotovljen solitaren in scintigrafsko "vroč" nodus, pri 5 pa toksična nodularna golšavost. Volumen zdravljenih nodusov je znašal od 2,5 do 38 ccm (povprečni volumen 20,7 +-14,1 ccm). Etanol smo vbrizgavali s prosto roko, ultrazvočno vodeno z barvnim in energijskim Doplerjem, običajno v več ponovljenih postopkih. Celoten volumen vbrizganega etanola je bil 1,5-krat večji od volumna zdravljenega nodusa. Razultati. Postopek je bil tehnično uspešen pri 37 bolnikih (92,5%). Vsi bolniki so tožili zaradi bolečine med vbrizgavanjem, podkožni hematom je nastal pri 6 bolnikih, prehodna disfonija pa pri 1 bolniku. Daljnoročnih zapletov zdravljenja ni bilo. Pri 36 bolnikih smo 3 do 4 mesece po zdravljenjuocenili uspešnost zdravljenja s scintigrafijo, s hormonskim stanjemter z ultrazvočno preiskavo. Ozdravljenih je bilo 22 bolnikov (61,1 %), delno ozdravljenih pa 10 bolnikov (27,8 %). Pri 4 bolnikih (11,1 %) so bilirezultati zdravljenja nezadovoljivi, ker je bila ugotovljena le skromna hormonska remisija. Zadovoljivi rezultati zdravljenja so bili doseženi pri 32/36 bolnikih (88,9%). V vseh primerih pa se je volumen nodusa močno zmanjšal. Boljše rezultate zdravljena smo ugotovili pri manjših vozlih in avtonomnih adenomih. Hipertireoza se ni ponovila pri nobenem bolniku. Zaključki. Ultrazvočno vodeno perkutano vbrizgavanje etanola je učinkovita in varna metoda zdravljenja avtonomnih ščitničnih nodusov, ki preprečuje hiperaktivnost nodusov z minimalnimi zapleti zdravljenja. Ti so prehodnega značaja in niso resni, kot jih lahko opazimo po zdravljenju z radioaktivnim jodom ali po operaciji
