Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), while a relatively new technology, has the potential to transform care for children with type 1 diabetes. Some, but not all studies, have shown that CGM can significantly improve hemoglobin A1c levels and reduce time spent in the hypoglycemic range in children, particularly when used as part of sensor-augmented pump(More)
Long-distance travel across multiple time zones presents unique challenges for patients taking insulin, requiring adjustments in both timing and dosage of basal insulin when several times zones (≥5) are traversed. Travel across the International Date Line adds to the confusion, as existing resources and dosing calculators often do not account for the date(More)
INTRODUCTION Primary hypothyroidism is a well-known cause of poor linear growth in children. A rare finding with profound or long-standing disease is anterior pituitary enlargement (pituitary pseudotumor). This case highlights this uncommon finding, discusses clinical situations in which gradual dose escalation of levothyroxine may be advisable and reviews(More)
Non-ketotic hyperglycemia is an unusual and rare cause of hemichorea-hemiballismus. Correction of the hyperglycemia usually results in total resolution of the signs and symptoms. We present the case and medical imaging findings of a 66-year-old female who presented with steadily worsening choreiform and ballistic movements of the right upper and lower(More)
This paper examines the use of partial least squares regression to predict glycemic variability in subjects with Type I Diabetes Mellitus using measurements from continuous glucose monitoring devices and consumer-grade activity monitoring devices. It illustrates a methodology for generating automated predictions from current and historical data and shows(More)
In this paper, the dynamic response of blood glucose concentration in response to physical activity of people with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) is captured by subspace identification methods. Activity (input) and subcutaneous blood glucose measurements (output) are employed to construct a personalized prediction model through semi-definite programming.(More)
Pyogenic liver abscess is a rare complication of diabetes, usually seen in adults greater than 50 years of age who have had diabetes for many years. We describe an 18-year-old male with type 2 diabetes found to have a pyogenic liver abscess caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae, and show accompanying images from his evaluation for fever of unknown origin (FUO).(More)
