Comparison of outcomes of the hybrid closed loop therapy with the conventional insulin pump in the first year after pump initiation

Gopalakrishna Nagapratheek , Soni Astha

Introduction: Hybrid closed loop (HCL) therapy has been shown to improve the glycaemic control in children and adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes. There is however limited data comparing the HCL therapy with conventional insulin pump therapy. We aimed to retrospectively compare the outcomes of hybrid closed loop (Tandem T slim) and conventional insulin pumps.Methodology: Electronic patient records for all the patients using insulin pump therapy at Sheffiel...

Self-collection of capillary blood samples at home for HbA1c measurements during the COVID-19 pandemic in children with diabetes mellitus

Qian Hui Lim Rachel , Gireesh Bhat Nikita , Begum Rogina , Shah Pratik , Ayling Ruth , Gevers Evelien

Background: Rapid implementation of tele-clinics was necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic. Patients missed routine point-of-care HbA1c testing, vital for evaluating long-term glycemic control. We evaluated the feasibility of remote HbA1c monitoring via self-collection of capillary blood samples at home, and examined clinical characteristics associated with patient engagement.Methods: Bio-Rad Haemoglobin Capillary Collection System (HCCS) was used, with...

Hypogonadism and pubertal disorders in wolfram syndrome

Newell Laura , Cunningham Olivia , Williams Denise , Barrett Timothy , Dias Renuka

Background: Wolfram Syndrome (WS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterised by early-onset diabetes and optic atrophy as well as a variable spectrum of other endocrine and neurological conditions. It is caused by mutations in the WFS1 gene. Previous reports have documented a variable prevalence of hypogonadism (6.3% of the international EURO-WABB registry, 34% of a German cohort); however the only UK cohort reported was of 10 males, 7 of whom had primary gonadal atr...

Type A insulin resistance syndrome presenting with PCOS features and an unusual pattern of diabetes in a 10-year-old female

Nath Susmita , Munn Wendy , Hulse Tony

Background: Type A insulin resistance syndrome (TAIRS) is rare (prevalence 1/100 000) and is caused by pathological mutations in the insulin receptor (INSR) gene. The clinical features tend to affect females more severely. Patients can present with severe hyperinsulinemia, hyperandrogenism and acanthosis nigricans. We report a case of a girl with symptoms initially suggestive of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) but also with asymptomatic diabetes mellitus.<p class="abste...

Monogenic obesity is probably not so rare - experience from a large tier 3 paediatric weight management service

Hawton Katherine , Hickingbotham Hannah , Hamilton-Shield Julian , Giri Dinesh

Background: Monogenic obesity is generally considered to only be responsible for a small proportion of genetic obesity with the vast majority attributable to polygenic obesity. Previous studies estimate that monogenic obesity accounts for less than 5% of obesity in Caucasian populations.Aims and method: To identify prevalence and clinical characteristics of monogenic obesity, we reviewed clinical notes of 219 patients currently, or recently (within 24 mo...
