Jesus Nuno , Tavares Patricia , Alexandrino Henrique , Silva Jose , Goncalves Margarida , Sousa Ana , Rocha Gustavo , Ferreira Marta , Correia Sara , Monteiro Sara , Oliveira Maria

Introduction: Insulin resistance, often implicated in the pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, can also occur in patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM), giving rise to a distinct phenotype that some authors describe as Double Diabetes - a population with a higher risk of developing chronic complications. The estimated glucose disposal rate (eGDR) is a validated marker of insulin resistance in Type 1 Diabetes (T1DM), based on data obtained from the hyperinsulinem...
