Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were assessed in 50 adult type I (insulin-dependent) and 19 type II (noninsulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus patients and in 54 controls. P100 wave latency was significantly longer in diabetic patients (P less than .001). Twenty-eight percent of diabetic patients had P100 wave latencies above the normal range. There was no(More)
The reliability of patient-generated data from self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) was studied in 14 patients with type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus treated by continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) (7 women, 7 men). The reflectance meters (Glucometer I, Ames, Elkhart, IN) used by the patients were replaced for a period of 21 days by(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of lower-extremity arterial disease and the sites of arterial obstruction in patients with pancreatic diabetes. PATIENTS AND METHODS The retrospective study included 83 patients with diabetes due to chronic pancreatitis (age [m +/- SD] 54.5 +/- 9.5 yr, diabetes duration 9.7 +/- 7.4 yr) and 83 patients with idiopathic(More)
AIM This study was an analysis of how diabetic patients with infected foot wounds are managed in hospital by departments specializing in diabetic foot pathology, including an evaluation of the outcome 1 year after discharge. METHODS This was a prospective study of a cohort of patients hospitalized for diabetic foot infection at 38 hospital centres in(More)
The measurement of transcutaneous oxygen pressure (TcPO2), a non-invasive method to quantify skin oxygenation, is particularly useful in advanced stages of arteriopathy of the lower limbs for evaluation of cutaneous ischaemia. It is a predictive factor for spontaneous healing when pressure is above 30 mmHg or, on the contrary, of an unfavourable course when(More)
Peripheral vascular disease is one component of the diabetic foot. Diabetic patients should be assessed for lower limb arterial disease resulting from the high prevalence of this complication. Medical management includes the treatment of vascular risk factors, anti-thrombotic agents, and walking rehabilitation. Vascular testing is required in the presence(More)
