Audit Of National Diabetes Services Scheme (ndss) Registrant Data

Audit of National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) Registrant data Audit of National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) Registrant data Over one million people are registered with the NDSS, which provides support for people with diabetes, as well as providing access to subsidised products required by people with diabetes, such as blood glucose test strips and sharps. Diabetes Australia engaged AHA to undertake an audit of the registrant information held within the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) database. AHA conducted an audit of a random and representative sample of NDSS registrant details to test the reliability of the NDSS database, primarily to determine whether there are people registered on the NDSS who do not have diabetes. A secondary objective was to determine whether diabetes type is correctly recorded on the NDSS database. AHAs team undertook statistical modelling to determine an appropriately weighted stratified random sample of registrants to contact. We then designed a questionnaire (for demographic details) and a number of decision trees (for diabetes status and type) to capture all information required to complete the audit, in consultation with an expert ref Continue reading >>

    Is it ok to drink alcohol socially(such as margaritas) once a month while taking metformin. Would one glass hurt. I have not been drinking when my girlfriends and I go out once a month because the bottle says do not drink alcohol. But I have read on some websites that it is ok to drink small amounts while taking metformin if you are not diabetic. I am not diabetic. I was just wondering. If anyone had had this question before.

    Yes I think small amounts are OK. I have never had any ill effects after drinking on Metformin but I do find that even after one drink I feel very dehydrated. So what I tend to do is if I fancy a good drink then I don't take my pills that day. I have been on Metformin for 3.5 years now so there is no way I could have stuck to being teetotal all that time.

    Hi, This may sound daft and ive had diabetes for 25 years and probably really should know more of these abbreviations, Ive been reading lots of posts and come across quite alot of them that i have had to look up.....so i now know DKA=Diabetic Ketoacidosis.....obviously i know what it is, just didnt know the DKA part, anyone got any more they can share

  2. glucosegirl

    These are some DAFNE abbreviations that drive me mad. I've never been on a DAFNE course but I learnt these terms from others on this forum:
    BI =background/basal insulin
    QA =quick acting insulin
    CP =carbohydrate portion (10g carbs)
    Some other non-DAFNE terms that I know are:
    hypo= hypoglycemia
    bg = blood glucose
    bgl blood glucose level
    bs = blood sugar
    bsl = blood sugar level
    and the one that has been annoying me since I was diagnosed until I looked it up last week:
    BM - basically used instead of the term bg for example his BM before bed last night was 5.4mmol/l or make sure you check your BM before lunch today
    BM stands for Boehringer Mannheim, now called Roche, who produced test strips called 'BM-test'

    Metformin and Extreme Exhaustion

    As I am typing, I am barely able to sit up and stay awake.
    Basically, I was on metformin for a few weeks. Everything was going good and my numbers were lowering, when suddenly I started to feel kind of tired. I wondered if it was the metformin. My husband told me Sunday morning to wake-up and see if I felt good and if I did, to take the metformin. I felt great, so I took it.
    As the day wore on, I got more and more exhausted. Every muscle in my body ached and I could hardly move. It has been two days since then, the same thing.
    I called a 24 hour nurse that my insurance provides and she said to go to the emergency room because I feel more exhausted than even when I was first diagnosed with diabetes.
    I am frightened that I have lactic acidosis and don't understand why the symptoms aren't going away even though I didn't take the medication today or yesterday.
    I went to the doctor this morning. I was there all day and just got back. She told me that I must be tired because my blood sugar is still high. And I said,"It's lower than before and I wasn't as tired then as I am now." And she kept repeating herself and forcing glipizide on me and saying that's what would make me feel better.
    I asked her to give me blood tests just in case and she said that no, I didn't need any blood tests and just to take the new medicine.
    And I don't know what to do anymore. I don't know why I am exhausted and I don't know what to do. I keep crying because the medicine has made me feel even sicker than I did when my blood sugar was 350. I thought I would stop taking the pills and the symptoms would go away, but that haven't. Please help.

    Also, I took a multi-vitamin just now in case my vitamins and minerals are imbalanced somehow. She wouldn't even check that for me.

  3. libbybeth

    Oh and just so you know, my highs right now are 180, which is still high and I'm working on it being lower, but that's much better than the 350 it was before. Also, I am only taking 500 mg of metformin once a day. It was working way better (although maybe some of it was change in diet) than I expected it to.
