Insulin therapy

Satman Ilhan

Insulin replacement therapy is essential for anyone with type 1 diabetes. Most patients with gestational or type 2 diabetes may also require insulin. The goals of insulin therapy are: to achieve optimal glycemic control without causing hypoglycemia or excessive weight gain and to minimize the impact on lifestyle. The therapeutic goals should be individualized according to patient’s age, disease duration, complications, comorbidities, lifestyle, and expected survival.<...

Long-term implications of hypoglycaemia in diabetes Dr Ilhan Satman, Istanbul University, Turkey

Satman Ilhan

Hypoglycaemia is associated with considerable morbidity and even mortality in type 1, and less likely in type 2 diabetes. Generally, hypoglycaemia is accepted as a surrogate marker of poor health as it is likely to be more prevalent in renal and liver failures, which independently increase cardiovascular diasease (CVD) and neurocognitive risks. Hypoglycaemia, have been implicated with a fortunately rare but tragic event, ‘dead-in-bed’ syndrome. It has been hypothesis...

Diabetes and cognitive impairment

Alkan Gulin , Tanrikulu Seher , Idiz Cemile , Beser Birsu , Kalem Sukriye Akca , Satman Ilhan , Cakir Sibel , Dinccag Nevin

Introduction: Diabetic patients have an increased risk of developing dementia and cognitive impairments. DM related factors such as macrovascular and microvascular complications, glucose toxicity, hyperinsulinemia have been suggested to be involved cognitive impairment even in prediabetic stage. Our aim is to establish the relationship between insulin resistance and cognitive impairment and the effect of poorly controlled diabetes on cognitive impairment.<p class="abstext"...

Oztop Nida , Celik Selda , Tutuncu Yildiz , Bagdemir Elif , Idiz Cemile , Uzum Ayse Kubat , Satman Ilhan , Dinccag Nevin

Introduction: The accurate and comprehensive assessment of glycaemic control in pregnant with gestational diabetes (GDM) is important for preventing foetal complications. We aimed to determine glycaemic variation on women with GDM with using a continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) and to investigate the relationship between reflecting glucose markers such as HbA1c, fructosamine (FRM), and 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG).Materials and methods: 31 women...

Satman Ilhan , Ozbey Nese , Boztepe Harika , Kalaca Sibel , Omer Beyhan , Tanakol Refik , Tutuncu Yildiz , Genc Sema , Alagol Faruk

Enormous evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency could be linked to several chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and cancer. The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and its correlates to test the hypothesis that vitamin D deficiency was common among adult Turkish population, particularly in women. The Turkish Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity and Endocrine Disease Survey (TURDEP-II) Jan to J...
