Insulinator: a computer program to help in the insulin therapy

Rodriguez Jose Perez , Portillo Cristobal Morales , Jimenez Virginia Hernando , Cobos Manuel Malagon , Olmedo Isabel Serrano , Perez Angel Sendon

Introduction and objectives: In clinical practice many professionals are involved in the diabetes treatment. To facilitate this work, we present a computer program, based in recommended guidelines, to improve the management of insulin therapy, called insulinator. We evaluated the correlation between these and clinical practice.Materials and methods: Insulinator has been made so that using a number of variables (weight, HbA1c and glycemic control) offer a...

Introduction: Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of the thyroid gland is an accurate diagnostic test used routinely in the initial evaluation of nodular thyroid disease. A sizeable subset of patients are found to be taking antithrombotic and/or anticoagulant (AT/AC) medications. This creates a dilemma for the endocrinologist, who must weigh the risk of withholding these medications (and the associated potential benefit of diagnosis) against the perceived increased risk of ia...

The adrenal venous sampling is a difficult test in the localization of the primary hyperaldosteronism

Rodriguez Jose Perez , Jimenez Virginia Hernando , Hernandez Tomas Martin , Cuadro Alberto Torres , Rivera Natividad Gonzalez , Baldrich Alfonso Gentil , Cobos Manuel Malagon

Introduction and objectives: The localization of primary hyperaldosteronism is often difficult. The coexistence of nonfunctioning adenomas is common in patients older 40 years old and small adenomas undetectable by CT could confuse with bilateral hyperplasia. The AVS is considered the ‘gold standard’ test for the location of numerous guides. We describe our experience in a clinical case of primary aldosteronism.Clinical case: We present a 58 ye...

Insulin infusers: 8 years experience

Jimenez Virginia Hernando , Rodriguez Jose Perez , Olmedo Isabel Serrano , Portillo Cristobal Morales , Molina Carlos Arana , Garcia Clara Garcia , Hernandez Tomas Martin

Objective: To evaluate the response to treatment with insulin infusion pumps by the evolution of HbA1c over 8 years of experience.Methods: Observational retrospective study. We evaluated the response to treatment in 122 patients with type 1 diabetes recruited between 2004 and 2012 in our area.Results: Between 2004 and 2012, 122 pumps have been implemented (average of 17.4 pumps/year). The number decreased to only four in 2012. Pres...

Impact of a comprehensive management of glycemic profile, arterial hypertension and dislypidemia on the onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus

Portillo Cristobal Morales , Pena Ignacio Fernandez , Jimenez Virginia Hernando , Garcia Clara Garcia , Rodriguez Jose Perez , Zelaya Raquel Venegas , Olmedo Isabel Serrano , Perez Angel Sendon

Objective: To analyze the impact of a specialized management on cardiovascular risk at the onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus.Material and method: Were analyzed 171 patients who visited our diabetes day hospital (DDH) during 2010–2011, studying the following variables: sex, age, BMI, smoking habit, arterial hypertension (de novo/previously known), antihypertensive therapy, dislypidemia (de novo/previously known), hypolipidemic thera...
