The Effects Of Continuous Insulin Pump Therapy On Glycemic Control In Pregnant Type 1 Diabetics, Kimberly Kelsey 2017 Dominican University of California

The Effects Of Continuous Insulin Pump Therapy On Glycemic Control In Pregnant Type 1 Diabetics, Kimberly Kelsey

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

Type 1 Diabetics have various ways of managing their diabetes that have been studied for their effectiveness. Pregnancy in the Type 1 Diabetic has been understudied. It is known that Diabetics in general have poorer pregnancy outcomes because of poor glycemic control. This coupled with the fact that the body needs 3-4 times more insulin as pregnancy comes to an end makes managing blood glucose levels challenging for diabetics (Lowdermilk, 2016, p. 689). For the Type 1 Diabetic, there are two main ways to control diabetes: multiple daily injections using at least two type of insulin and continuous subcutaneous insulin ...


Snail-Cathepsin L Signaling In Human Breast And Prostate Cancers, LizaJoy Burton 2017 Clark Atlanta University

Snail-Cathepsin L Signaling In Human Breast And Prostate Cancers, Lizajoy Burton

Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University

Prostate and breast cancer are the leading causes of cancer-related death in men and women, respectively, and metastasis is the primary factor underlying the high mortality rates.1 Snail transcription factor is an important molecule that drives prostate and breast cancer metastasis through the process of epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT). Proteolytic enzymes that promote invasion and metastasis such as the lysosomal cysteine protease cathepsin L (Cat L) have been shown to degrade E-cadherin, promoting the epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT).2 It has also been shown that silencing Cat L can inhibit transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β)-mediated EMT by suppressing Snail ...


Prolonged Exercise And Its Effects On Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Laurel G. Markert 2017 University of Wyoming

Prolonged Exercise And Its Effects On Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Laurel G. Markert

Honors Theses AY 16/17

Type 1 diabetes mellitus is presumably caused by immunological or viral cumulative destruction of pancreatic β cells, leading to a complete inability to produce endogenous insulin. Exercise can cause different reactions in relation to blood glucose concentration, depending on duration and intensity. High intensity aerobic workouts can cause blood glucose to drop. Anaerobic exercise can cause blood glucose to rise. This can cause problems for a diabetic patient in terms of diabetes management during exercise, as patients often over-compensate for an expected glucose drop by eating carbohydrates and taking a reduced bolus amount of insulin (or no insulin at all ...


A Predictive Model For Lack Of Partial Clinical Remission In New-Onset Pediatric Type 1 Diabetes, Katherine R. Marino, Rachel L. Lundberg, Aastha Jasrotia, Louise Maranda, Michael J. Thompson, Bruce A. Barton, Laura C. Alonso, Benjamin U. Nwosu 2017 University of Massachusetts Medical School

A Predictive Model For Lack Of Partial Clinical Remission In New-Onset Pediatric Type 1 Diabetes, Katherine R. Marino, Rachel L. Lundberg, Aastha Jasrotia, Louise Maranda, Michael J. Thompson, Bruce A. Barton, Laura C. Alonso, Benjamin U. Nwosu

Endocrinology/Diabetes

IMPORTANCE: >50% of patients with new-onset type 1 diabetes (T1D) do not enter partial clinical remission (PCR); early identification of these patients may improve initial glycemic control and reduce long-term complications.

AIM: To determine whether routinely obtainable clinical parameters predict non-remission in children and adolescents with new-onset T1D.

SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Data on remission were collected for the first 36 months of disease in 204 subjects of ages 2-14 years with new-onset type 1 diabetes. There were 86 remitters (age 9.1±3.0y; male 57%), and 118 non-remitters (age 7.0±3.1y; male 40.7%). PCR was defined ...
