The frequency of symptomatic hypoglycaemic episodes was studied in 411 randomly selected conventionally treated Type 1 diabetic out-patients. Between two consecutive visits to the out-patient clinic each patient filled in a questionnaire at home. The number of hypoglycaemic episodes was then recorded prospectively in a diary for 1 week. From the(More)
The correlation of blue-green lens fluorescence to the metabolic control of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus was studied in 36 patients in whom the level of glycosylated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) had been followed from the onset of diabetes. Good metabolic control (22 patients, all with mean HbA1c levels, less than 7.0% and, thus, low blood glucose(More)
Eight insulin-dependent diabetic patients were studied to evaluate sleep patterns during normoglycemia and spontaneous and insulin-induced hypoglycemia. Two channels of electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyogram and actooculogram were recorded. The signals were analyzed off-line, using a polygraphic sleep analysis system. The scoring was mainly based on the(More)
The frequency of nocturnal hypoglycaemia, i.e. blood glucose concentration (BG) less than 3.0 mmol/l, was evaluated in consecutively selected insulin-dependent patients on multiple insulin injections (MII), n = 23, or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusions (CSII), n = 25. Blood was sampled hourly from 23.00 to 07.00. Seven patients (30%) on MII had at(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the effect of nasally administered glucagon in doses of 1 (A) and 2 mg (B), with 1 mg glucagon administered intramuscularly (C) in 12 C-peptide-negative IDDM patients. Spontaneous recovery (D) from insulin-induced hypoglycaemia in the same patients was used as reference. The mean age was 31.1 (21-48) years, diabetes(More)
Eight Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients with no diabetic complications were studied on two consecutive and one subsequent overnight occasions. The aim was to evaluate the influence of nocturnal hypoglycaemia on neuropsychological and reaction time tests the following morning. Hypoglycaemia was induced by i. v. insulin infusion, blood glucose(More)
The relationship between symptomatic (subjective feelings) and biochemical (blood glucose concentration less than 3 mmol l-1) hypoglycaemia was studied in 66 randomly selected insulin-dependent diabetic out-patients under normal conditions of daily life with conventional insulin injection regimens. The patients (a) collected 7-point diurnal blood glucose(More)
Eight Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients with no diabetic complications were studied overnight for two consecutive and one subsequent night with continuous monitoring of electroencephalogram and serial hormone measurements. The aims were: 1) to evaluate the influence of spontaneous and insulin-induced hypoglycaemia on nocturnal(More)
The relationship between diabetic nephropathy and blue-green lens fluorescence, lens transmittance, and other lens fluorometry parameters was studied in patients with long-term insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. The findings in 10 patients who presented with diabetic nephropathy were compared with those of 11 patients of comparable age and duration of(More)
UNLABELLED Asymptomatic hypoglycemia in IDDM patients seems to be more frequent during the night than during the day, with reported frequencies as high as 56%. Hormonal counterregulation to diurnal and nocturnal hypoglycemia was studied in 10 insulin-dependent diabetic patients without diabetic complications in order to test whether hormonal responses were(More)
