Quantification of the Glycemic Response to Microdoses of Subcutaneous Glucagon at Varying Insulin Levels

EGP increases steeply with glucagon doses between 25 and 175 µg at lower insulin infusion rates. However, high insulin infusion rates prevent these doses of glucagon from significantly increasing glucose output and may reduce glucagon effectiveness in preventing hypoglycemia when used in the artificial pancreas (Diabetes Care)


The control of blood pressure might be important in delaying progression of arterial aging in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

We found that the variation of blood pressure was associated with the progression of vascular aging of the large- to middle-sized arteries in patients with type 2 DM. Therefore, control of blood pressure might be important in reducing arterial aging or PWV in patients with type 2 DM (Clinical Interventions in Aging)


The prognosis of diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes since 1996–1998: the Skaraborg Diabetes Register

Most patients with diabetes develop little retinopathy for the first 10 years after diagnosis. High HbA1c at baseline was associated with retinopathy and maculopathy during follow-up. Antihypertensive treatment, probably a proxy for regular controls and early detection of diabetes, was associated with less retinopathy (International Ophthalmology)


Optical quality of the diabetic eye: a review

This review aims to provide an overview of current knowledge about the effects of diabetes mellitus in these optical phenomena and its consequence on the visual quality of the diabetic patient (Eye)
