Thesis Title: Development of Clinical Decision Support Systems for the Management of Diabetes Mellitus In the present PhD thesis, the study and development of decision support systems for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diabetes has been conducted. In the first part of the thesis, a comparative assessment of different machine learning and statistical methodologies towards the development of risk prediction models for the incidence and the evolution of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus has been orchestrated. The use of ensembles of classifiers, and specifically ensembles of feed forward neural networks, for the prediction of Diabetes Mellitus for Pima Indian women and Cardiovascular Diseases for patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus has been examined. Several classifiers have been developed, others follow the Bagging paradigm, others are ensembles of Feed-forward Neural Networks with different numbers of hidden neurons or layers, others follow the Binary Logistic Regression paradigm, others follow the Bayesian approach, and others are variations of Decision Trees. It has been shown that the ensembles of classifiers that have been trained following the Bagging approach and the ensembles of feed forward neural networks with different numbers of hidden neurons or layers have achieved the highest levels of prediction accuracy and their predictions are closer to the real risk scores, as indicated by the results of the Hosmer-Lemeshow test. The obtained results justify that ensembles of Artificial Neural Networks can significantly contribute in predicting the incidence of T2DM or its complications by having the capacity to handle the unbalanced nature, wh Continue reading >>

Cardiovascular Disease And Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Investigation Of Underlying Mechanisms

Cardiovascular Disease And Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Investigation Of Underlying Mechanisms

Cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus: Investigation of underlying mechanisms Dymott, Jane Alison (2011)Cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus: Investigation of underlying mechanisms. MD thesis, University of Glasgow. Printed Thesis Information: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death in the United Kingdom and is associated with a huge burden of morbidity. Within the group of cardiovascular diseases coronary artery disease (CAD) is the single largest cause of death. Death rates from CAD have been falling since the 1970s predominantly due to a reduction in the prevalence in major risk factors such as cigarette smoking. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) is an important risk factor for CVD. Type 2 DM is increasing in prevalence and there is concern that this will contribute to an increase in the burden of CVD. Reducing cardiovascular risk in patients with type 2 DM has to date focussed on tight blood pressure and glycaemic control together with statin therapy to achieve tight low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) targets. Recent studies such as ADVANCE and ACCORD have highlighted some of the limitations with this approach. Important vascular abnormalities underlying the development of CAD include endothelial dysfunction and increased arterial stiffness. Some of the mechanisms underlying these abnormalities are thought to include increased oxidative stress, inflammation, insulin resistance and dyslipidaemia. These processes in patients with type 2 DM are currently not fully understood. It is hoped that through increased understanding of these processes new strategies for reducing cardiovascular risk in patients with type 2 DM can be identified.This study aimed to investigate some of the processes thought to underlie CVD in Continue reading >>

Risk Factors of Diabetes Mellitus in Rural Puducherry Majgi, SM and Soudarssanane, BM and Roy, G and Das, AK (2012)Risk Factors of Diabetes Mellitus in Rural Puducherry. [Journal (On-line/Unpaginated)] Purpose: Prevalence of type 2 diabetes is increasing in India. Rural area constitutes 80% of India. Hence it is essential to understand the epidemiology for appropriate interventions. Objectives: to identify risk factors of type 2 diabetes mellitus in rural Puducherry. Methodology: Cross sectional study in two villages of Puducherry, India. 1403 subjects above 25 years from 2 villages. Study measured demographic variables, Body Mass Index (BMI), physical activity, family history of Diabetes Mellitus, smoking and alcohol consumption. Fasting blood glucose was measured for study subjects. Further, those with >126 mg/dl were subjected for Oral Glucose Tolerance Test. Univariate and multivariate analysis was done. Receiver Operating characteristic Curve was plotted to find out cut off for Diabetic Risk Score. Findings: The prevalence of type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) was 5.8%. The response rate was (88%). In univariate analysis age, occupation, Socio Economic Status, BMI, physical activity, family history were significant for DM. In multivariate analysis age, BMI, family history of diabetes and occupation were significant for type 2 DM. The diabetes risk score generated by the study using age, BMI and family history of DM, had specificity, sensitivity and accuracy of 54%, 77% and 76.2% respectively. The area under curve for scoring system was 0.784 (<0.05). Conclusions: Identified risk factors are useful for early diagnosis by using diabetes risk score thus uncovering the iceberg of disease.

"cardiovascular Complications Of Diabetes Mellitus" By Fuad K. Faraj

The aims of this thesis are to attempt to identify subjects at increased risk of diabetes-associated cardiovascular disease (CVD) at various stages of the condition, focusing predominantly on the most common form of the condition, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This includes attempting to identify a subset of the population that already has diabetes who may be at particularly increased risk of CVD, to determine if measuring some of the novel markers of CVD risk in subjects with diabetes may be useful in assessing cardiovascular risk, assessing risk of CVD in newly diagnosed diabetes and attempting to identify prevalence of cardiovascular complications in newly diagnosed patients. Finally I will determine whether genetic heterogeneity in the Calpain 10 (CAPN10) gene might be a useful indicator of diabetes risk in Irishsubjects and as such be a way of identifying subjects at future risk of CVD prior to the onset of DM when interventions may be more effective in reducing CVD risk. To determine the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MS) in patients with diabetes. To estimate and compare the prevalence of the MS in both TlDM and T2DM patients. To evaluate the medium and long term cardiovascular risk utilizing the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) risk engine in patients who are newly diagnosed with T2DM. To evaluate patients with newly diagnosed diabetes for the presence of significant subclinical macrovascular disease. To study the association of novel risk of cardiovascular factors, fibrinogen and C-reactive protein (CRP) and albuminuria as markers of CVD risk in newly diagnosed patients with T2DM. To estimate the prevalence and the relationship of three polymorphisms (43, 63 and 2037) and insertion-deletion 19 of the CAPN10 gene in a cohort of Irish Continue reading >>

Insulin Resistance In Obese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus : Effects Of A Very Low Calorie Diet

Insulin Resistance In Obese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus : Effects Of A Very Low Calorie Diet

Insulin resistance in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus : effects of a very low calorie diet Insulin resistance in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus : effects of a very low calorie diet Insulin resistance in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus : effects of a very low calorie diet Insulin resistance is of major pathogenic importance in obese DM2 and this can be improved by weight loss. Very low calorie diets (VLCDs) are often used for this purpose. This thesis focused on the safety and tolerability of a VLCD and on the short-term and long-term effects of a VLCD on glucose and lipid metabolism in obese DM2 on insulin therapy. Firstly, VLCDs are safe in obese DM2, even for up to 8 months. Secondly, all blood-glucose lowering therapy could be withdrawn simultaneously provided that patients still had remaining endogenous insulin secretion (fasting C-peptide >0.8 ng/ml). Thirdly, in these patients, fasting plasma glucose levels decline arter 2 days of a VLCD, due to a decrease in basal endogenous glucose production (EGP, mainly the liver), without an effect on insulin sensitivity. Fourthly, weight loss of 50% of overweight not only normalised basal EGP but also significantly improved insulin sensitivity, especially insulin-stimulated glucose disposal (mainly skeletal muscle, by 107 %). Fiftly, at the myocellular level an improvement in insulin signalling and a tendency to an increase of the glucose transporter GLUT-4 at the cell membrane was found. This is possibly due to the observed decrease in intramyocellular triglycerides. Finally, even a once-only 30-day VLCD had beneficial effects on body weight, glycaemic regulation, blood pressure and dyslipidaemia after 18 months. Promotor: A.E. Meinders, Referent: H.P.

Characterizing The Impact Of Type-2 Diabetes On Cortical Sensorimotor Pathways In Chronic Stroke : A Multimodal Neuroimaging Study - Ubc Library Open Collections

Characterizing the impact of type-2 diabetes on cortical sensorimotor pathways in chronic stroke : a multimodal neuroimaging study Individuals with type-2 diabetes have an increased incidence of ischemic stroke, and experience higher rates of disability after stroke than non-diabetics. Recent research suggests that type-2 diabetes has adverse effects on neuronal integrity and function, however, to date very little work has examined the interactions of diabetes with chronic stroke recovery. The goal of the present thesis is to address this gap in the literature by employing multimodal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to examine the impact of type-2 diabetes on the integrity of surviving sensorimotor neural tissue in individuals with chronic hemiparesis as a result of ischemic stroke. We employ volumetric MRI, diffusion tractography, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to explore the structure of motor and sensory cortex grey matter and white matter projections. We found individuals with chronic stroke and diabetes had lower regional cortical thickness in primary somatosensory cortex, and primary and secondary motor cortices. Contralesional primary and secondary motor cortex thicknesses were negatively related to motor outcomes of the paretic upper-limb in the diabetes group. MRS revealed stroke survivors with diabetes had bilaterally reduced creatine levels in sensorimotor cortex. Diabetes status did not impact gross cortical volumes, white matter volumes, or white matter microstructure in projections from the primary motor and sensory cortex. These results suggest that type-2 diabetes alters cerebral metabolic function, which may result in thinning to sensorimotor grey matter. This work provides preliminary evidence for differential profiles of cerebra Continue reading >>

Dietary Factors And Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus In Urban Saudi Adults - Wrap: Warwick Research Archive Portal

Dietary factors and type 2 diabetes mellitus in urban Saudi adults Al-Khudairy, Lena (2014)Dietary factors and type 2 diabetes mellitus in urban Saudi adults. PhD thesis, University of Warwick. Background: Saudi Arabia is ranked sixth for the highest prevalence of T2DM worldwide. There is very little information on dietary factors associated with the prevalence of T2DM in Saudi Arabia. There is an urgent need for the identification of culturally specific T2DM risk factors to then develop culturally tailored public awareness programs and interventions, to reduce the prevalence of T2DM. Objectives: To conduct a systematic review of the association between dietary factors and T2DM in the Middle Eastern region. To determine the association between dietary factors, including anthropometric measures, selected food items and beverages, selected dietary biomarkers and T2DM in Saudi adults. To identify culturally specific barriers to healthy eating in Saudi adults, with and without T2DM. Methods: The systematic review was conducted by searching several electronic databases and contacting authors, libraries, and research centres in the Middle East. Included studies assessed potential dietary factors for T2DM in Middle Eastern adults. An existing cross-sectional survey (n = 2631), which is part of a larger Biomarkers Screening Survey conducted in the urban area of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (2009), of Saudi adults aged 18 years, was used to examine the association between dietary factors and T2DM. Anthropometric measures (n = 2355) included body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist to hip ratio and sagittal abdominal diameter. Selected food/beverage included 17 items collected from a food freque ncy questionnaire (FFQ) (n = 1867). The FFQ was validated in this study agains Continue reading >>

Summary: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) is a metabolic disorder resulting from hyperglycemia and insulin resistance which is characterized by increased production of reactive species leading to oxidative stress and inflammatory changes. The goal of this study was to investigate whether the use of insulin therapy in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus influences levels of inflammatory markers and oxidative stress. It is a clinical study in which 80 patients diagnosed with T2DM (40 in insulin therapy and 40 without insulin therapy) and 40 in the control group (without DM2) were selected. Adherence to treatment was assessed by the Morisky-Green test. Metabolic control was evaluated through tests of fasting glycemia, glycated hemoglobin and lipid profile. Oxidative stress was investigated through levels of nitric oxide (NO), lipid peroxidation (Malondialdehyde - MDA) and superoxide dismutase (SOD). The inflammation evaluation was performed through the markers: tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα), ultra sensitive C reactive protein (CRP) and fibrinogen. In addition, the -308 G / A polymorphism was investigated in the promoter region of the TNFα gene and its correlation with its plasma levels. In this study, an inadequate glycemic control was found in patients with DM2 who were on insulin therapy and a low adherence to treatment in both DM2 groups (approximately 50% of the patients). The DM2 group with insulin therapy had lower levels of NO and SOD, higher levels of fibrinogen and TNF-α, and lower levels of CRP than the DM2 group without insulin therapy. In lipid peroxidation both groups of patients with DM2 had higher levels of MDA than controls. There was no correlation of the -308 G / A polymorphism in the promoter region of the TNF-α gene with its p Continue reading >>

This is the second of six articles based on presentations at the American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions held 610 June 2008 in San Francisco, California. Frederick Brancati (Baltimore, MD) discussed diabetes screening. Approaches using age, sex, BMI, family history, hypertension, and lifestyle as predictive measures have shown good performance in cross-sectional and prospective studies, and capillary glucose measurement adds further value, although the public health impact of such approaches has not been determined. In the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), 158,177 individuals were screened, with 3,819 randomized. Those whose fasting capillary glucose was 90115 mg/dl had increased risk of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT); levels 130 mg/dl were 250 times as likely as levels <90 mg/dl to be associated with IGT. Patrick O'Connor (Minneapolis, MN) pointed out that health plans have become very interested in identifying and treating diabetes and addressed the question of whether systematic identification of pre-diabetes by screening Continue reading >>

Updated 2017-09-20 11:35 Denna sida p svenska Anna Ugarph from the research group Growth and Metabolism will defend her thesis "Bone disease and Diabetes Mellitus" on September 22, 2017. Main supervisor is Professor Kerstin Brismar. Patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at increased risk for fracture. The fracture risk increase further in patients with diabetes complications. Metabolic factors, including the IGF-I system, affect bone. How can this new knowledge contribute to the improvement of peoples health? Bone disease and fracture risk should be considered a complication of Diabetes Mellitus. As for cardiovascular complications in Diabetes Mellitus, multiple risk factors should be treated to prevent future fracture in patients with Diabetes Mellitus. Peripheral neuropathy is a risk factor for future fracture. We have initiated a randomized case-control study. Patients with newly diagnosed type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and matched controls are identified in primary care and included in the study. We will study Metabolic control, vitamin D status, the IGF- system, bone markers, bone quality, co morbidity, medication, life style factors, ethnicity and socio-economic factors.

Spiral: A Study On Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus In Abu Dhabi, Uae: Prevalence, Risk Factors & Quality Of Management

Spiral: A Study On Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus In Abu Dhabi, Uae: Prevalence, Risk Factors & Quality Of Management

Background The prevalence of diabetes, chiefly type 2 (T2DM), is particularly high in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Effective management of the disorder and its co-morbidities is needed; however quality of T2DM care is variable and suboptimal worldwide. In the UAE, few studies have been undertaken to systematically review the prevalence of T2DM and its risk factors and any changes in these trends overtime. Also, studies on the quality of T2DM care and factors influencing it are lacking. Aim To examine the quality of care provided to people with T2DM in Abu Dhabi, particularly Al-Ain, and identify factors influencing it. Methods This was a multi-method study involving systematic reviews, and quantitative and qualitative approaches. Quantitative data were collected from a random sample of medical records of people with T2DM to assess the quality of T2DM care and improvement overtime and investigate any differences in the care provided to different age groups and genders. The qualitative method includes semi-structured interviews with healthcare professionals to investigate factors affecting the quality of T2DM care. Results Findings from the quantitative study demonstrated that the care provided to people with T2DM is sub-optimal for glycaemic and blood pressure control. Better glycaemic control was more common among people aged 40 and above. However, encouraging progress with regard to intermediate outcomes of diabetes control including glycaemic and lipid between 2008 and 2010 was found among both genders. Four main themes emerged from the thematic analysis including motivation of healthcare professionals, training of healthcare professionals, team work and Emirate cultural impact on diabetes care.Conclusion This study has provided a picture of T2DM prevalence and ri Continue reading >>

Physical Activity In The Management Of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Physical Activity In The Management Of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

JavaScript is disabled for your browser. Some features of this site may not work without it. Physical activity in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus The incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is rising throughout the world. Explicit evidence has demonstrated sedentary behaviour is a powerful but modifiable risk factor affecting glycaemic control and the incidence of diabetes complications. Despite this, current population estimates indicate the importance of physical activity is not effectively translated to the T2DM population. The aim of this thesis was therefore to investigate barriers and facilitators to physical activity behaviour among individuals with T2DM. An extensive literature review investigating evidence linking physical activity to the management of T2DM was performed, then followed on by three studies which 1) investigated the effects of a 12-week supported exercise programme among newly diagnosed patients, 2) explored factors that may be associated with sedentary or physical activity behaviour, and 3) compared and contrasted the perception and use of physical activity among patients who participated in an exercise programme and patients who received standard care. The findings of this thesis demonstrated that a supported exercise programme can help newly diagnosed T2DM patients achieve moderate-high intensity physical activity 3-5 daysweek-1, improving glycaemic control through enhanced -cell function associated with decreased insulin resistance and improved lipid profile. Exploratory investigation suggested self-efficacy to exercise, internal locus of control and physical activity advice may be important antecedents for physical activity behaviour. Furthermore, it also appeared to suggest that peer support and more comprehensive physical Continue reading >>
