On the basis of a retrospective study of 71 children followed for 24 months after diagnosis of type I insulin dependent diabetes a fitted mathematical model was constructed for the prediction of the course of beta cell function from the time of diagnosis. Two equations were derived, one for the maximal basal (B-max) and the other for the maximal i.v.(More)
Forty-four of 75 pregnant women with juvenile-onset insulin-dependent diabetes, who attended a preconceptional clinic, were seen regularly by a diabetologic team. Glycemic control was obtained by intensified insulin therapy and monitored by blood glucose self-monitoring. When these patients were compared with a group of 31 nonattenders of the(More)
Insulin-induced hypoglycemia (IIH) is the gold standard test for assessment of the integrity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, but it may be hazardous. We sought to determine whether the standard (250 micrograms) or low-dose (1 microgram/1.73 m2) short ACTH test can replace IIH in patients with idiopathic multiple pituitary hormone(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to evaluate the frequency of skin manifestations, including the diabetic hand syndrome, in young IDDM patients. In addition, we studied the relation of the cutaneous manifestations to diabetes duration, glycemic control, and microvascular complications. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The frequency of skin manifestations,(More)
The perinatal mortality rate of infants of diabetic mothers (IDMs) has declined dramatically from 250 per 1000 live births in the 1960s to a near-normal 20 per 1000 live births in the 1980s. Five to 8% of all IDMs suffer from major congenital malformations, and it is the latter that are responsible for 50% of these perinatal deaths. It has been shown that(More)
Two-hundred-and-fifty patients with juvenile diabetes mellitus aged 3-38 years, were examined for trigger finger. Thirteen patients (5%) were found to have trigger finger--10 women and 3 men aged 14-38 years (mean 26 years). The ring, middle fingers, and thumb were the most affected. Two patients had bilateral trigger finger. There was a significant(More)
Fifty-nine of 94 pregnant women with juvenile-onset insulin-dependent diabetes who attended a preconceptional clinic were periodically examined by a diabetologic team. Glycemic control was obtained by intensified insulin therapy and monitored by blood glucose self-monitoring. These women were compared with the 35 pregnant women who did not receive(More)
