The magnitude of the disturbance of metabolic control in diabetes mellitus in very young children has been recognised, but seldom studied. Limitations to studies are set by the difficulty of obtaining control data and until recently the lack of alternative therapies. Recently “mini” pumps for continuous subcutaneous insulin delivery have become available(More)
The efficacy and acceptability of multiple daily insulin injections (three preprandial injections of short-acting insulin (NovoPen) plus once daily extended-acting insulin) were compared with those of twice daily injections of short- and intermediate-acting insulin. Sixteen Type 1 diabetic patients participated in a cross-over study (6-month treatment(More)
The efficacy and psychosocial effects of multiple daily insulin injections (three preprandial injections of short-acting insulin (NovoPen) and once daily, bedtime extended-acting insulin) were compared with those of twice daily combinations of short- and intermediate-acting insulin, in a randomized crossover study (two 6-month periods), in 16 adult diabetic(More)
The effect of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), begun at diagnosis, on blood glucose control and endogenous insulin production was studied in a group of consecutively referred newly diagnosed diabetic children. In a random order, 15 children started CSII (age 9.5 +/- 4.2 (+/- SD) years) and 15 conventional injection therapy (age 7.0 +/- 3.6(More)
Efficacy and acceptability of the Medi-Jector II, compared with conventional syringes, was evaluated in a cross-over study (two 4-week periods) in 14 adult insulin-dependent diabetic patients. In 6 out of these 14 patients the clinical diagnosis of needle phobia was confirmed by anxiety tests for trait (45.8 +/- 12.8 (SD) versus 34.0 +/- 6.2; p less than(More)
