The role of a school nurse in the care of a child with diabetes mellitus type 1 - the perspectives of patients and their parents: Literature review

1 Introduction Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is one of the most common chronic incurable diseases of the developmental age in Europe ( 1 ). The treatment of T1DM includes insulin therapy with the insulin dose individually adjusted, self-monitoring, proper nutrition, physical activity and health education ( 2 ). Children and adolescents with T1DM should attend public educational institutions ( 3 , 4 ).

Factors associated with glycemic control in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus at a tertiary-care center in Thailand: a retrospective observational study

Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) is a chronic disease caused by an immune-mediated destruction of b-cells, resulting in lifelong dependence on exogenous insulin [ 1 ]. The incidence of newly diagnosed T1D in children and adolescents has been increasing rapidly worldwide [ 2 ]. In 1993, the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) study established that in patients with T1D, early near-normalization of blood glucose with glycated hemoglobin (HbA 1c ) <7.0% prevents or delays progression of long-term micro-vascular complications [ 3 ]. However, optimizing

E-healthcare for diabetes mellitus type 2 patients – a randomised controlled trial in Slovenia

1 Introduction Diabetes mellitus (DM), defined as a “group of common metabolic disorders that share the phenotype of hyperglycaemia”, is a very relevant and growing public health problem in all developed countries. Among the most important treatment goals for adults with diabetes are: good glycaemic control (HbA1c<7.0% and fewer hyperglycaemia symptoms), regulation of blood pressure and serum lipids, prevention of complications, and patient education about DM, nutrition and exercise. The measurement of glycated haemoglobin and self-monitoring of blood
