BACKGROUND Intensive treatment of patients with type 1 diabetes delays the onset of long-term complications. OBJECTIVES On the basis of the information from two nation-wide quality registers, we investigated to which extent HbA1c values 3-15 months after diagnosis in childhood are related to metabolic control, albuminuria, and retinopathy in early(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the long term effects of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (insulin pump therapy) on cardiovascular diseases and mortality in people with type 1 diabetes. DESIGN Observational study. SETTING Swedish National Diabetes Register, Sweden 2005-12. PARTICIPANTS 18,168 people with type 1 diabetes, 2441 using insulin pump(More)
PURPOSE To measure the capsular bag diameter (CBDm) in vivo and calculate a regression formula for future preoperative prediction of capsular bag diameter (CBDp). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University of Vienna, Austria. METHODS This prospective study comprised 70 eyes having cataract surgery with implantation of an open capsular tension ring(More)
AIMS To compare metabolic control between males and females with type 1 diabetes during adolescence and as young adults, and relate it to microvascular complications. METHODS Data concerning 4000 adolescents with type 1 diabetes registered in the Swedish paediatric diabetes quality registry, and above the age of 18years in the Swedish National Diabetes(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared the ability of glucagon to restore plasma glucose (PG) after mild hypoglycemia in patients with type 1 diabetes on an isocaloric high-carbohydrate diet (HCD) versus a low-carbohydrate diet (LCD). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Ten patients with insulin pump-treated type 1 diabetes randomly completed 1 week of the HCD (≥250(More)
PURPOSE To compare the corneal topographic changes after cataract surgery using 2 types of clear corneal incisions (CCIs). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University of Vienna, Austria. METHODS This prospective, unmasked, nonrandomized study comprised 64 eyes scheduled for cataract surgery; 29 eyes received a temporal sutureless 3.0 mm corneal(More)
Hypoglycemia can lead to seizures, unconsciousness, or death. Insulin pump treatment reduces the frequency of severe hypoglycemia compared with multiple daily injections treatment. The addition of a continuous glucose monitor, so-called sensor-augmented pump (SAP) treatment, has the potential to further limit the duration and severity of hypoglycemia as the(More)
