Real-time continuous glucose monitoring during pregnancy in women with type 1 diabetes: glycemic control and key obstertric outcomes

de Valk Harold , van Niel Judith , Silvius Bianca , Geelhoed-Duijvestijn Nel

Introduction: Real time continuous glucose monitoring (RTCGM) has been shown to improve glycemic control. Limited data are available on the effects of RTCGM during pregnancy. The current study assesses glycemic control and obstetric outcomes in women with type 1 diabetes, comparing RTCGM with usual self measurement of blood glucose (SMBG).Patients and methods: Patients were recruited from two hospitals. All patients were eligible. Glycemic control was as...

Differential pattern of insulin signaling in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle in adult female sheep exposed prenatally to testosterone

Sandoval Daniel , Recabarren Monica P , Carrasco Albert , Sir-Petermann Teresa , Recabarren Sergio E

Insulin resistance is defined as the incapacity of insulin to increase glucose uptake by peripheral tissues (skeletal muscle and adipose tissue principally). This phenomenon is present in different animal models for PCOS by prenatal exposure to androgens. In the PCOS condition, the metabolic pathway of insulin activity is defective in skeletal muscle and adipocyte whereas the activation of steroidogenesis is maintained. The decreased insulin stimulated glucose uptake is due to...

Prakapiene Edita , Bagdonaite Kornelija , Radzeviciene Lina , Zilaitiene Birute

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of age, disease duration, glycaemic control and diabetic nephropathy for the sexual function of women with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D).Methods: Study subjects – 18–52 year old women with type 1 diabetes. Participants filled the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and questionnaires about T1D, disease duration, glycaemic control and complications. Laboratory tests including glycated hem...
