Diabetes is a chronic disorder, which manifests when insulin levels or resistance to insulin action becomes insufficient to control systemic glucose levels. Although the number of available agents to manage diabetes continues to expand rapidly, the maintenance of euglycemia by individuals with diabetes remains a substantial challenge. Unfortunately, many(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite substantial evidence of the benefit of frequent self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in type 1 diabetes, certain insurers limit the number of test strips that they will provide. The large database of the T1D Exchange clinic registry provided an opportunity to evaluate the relationship between the number of SMBG measurements per day and(More)
OBJECTIVE Optimizing glycemic control in type 1 diabetes is important to minimize the risk of complications. We used the large T1D Exchange clinic registry database to identify characteristics and diabetes management techniques in adults with type 1 diabetes, differentiating those under excellent glycemic control from those with poorer control.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Previous research has documented racial/ethnic disparities in diabetes treatments and outcomes. It remains controversial whether these disparities result from differences in socioeconomic status (SES) or other factors. We examined racial/ethnic disparities in therapeutic modalities and diabetes outcomes among the large number of(More)
BACKGROUND Adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) have decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and increased fracture risk, yet the etiologies remain elusive. Early detection of derangements in bone biomarkers during adolescence could lead to timely recognition. In adolescents with T1D, we evaluated the relationships between metabolic control, BMD, and bone(More)
We have examined the atomic dynamics of the brittle fracture process in amorphous silica using molecular dynamics. Under strain, extensive atomic restructuring occur in the vicinity of voids leading to the formation of 2-membered (2-M) silica rings that are much different than the open network structure of the bulk. The sequence of events that lead to the(More)
The carbon monoxide (CO) binding constants of human myoglobin (Mb) and several single-site mutants have been determined using two different methods. In the kinetic method, which is commonly used for this ligand, the overall association (k(on)) and dissociation (k(off)) rates of CO were measured by flash photolysis and NO replacement, respectively, and the(More)
