Estimating the Rates of Undiagnosed Prediabetes and Diabetes among People Experiencing Homelessness

2 weeks 1 day ago

The rising prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Canada poses a significant health challenge. Despite the convenience of screening for diabetes with glycated hemoglobin concentration, people experiencing homelessness (PEH) often face barriers to accessing diabetes screening, potentially leading to underdiagnosis. This study aims to assess the prevalence of undiagnosed diabetes among PEH in Calgary, Alberta, contributing insights for planning healthcare services and public health initiatives.

Real-World Use and Outcomes of Sodium Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors in Adults with Diabetes and Heart Failure: A Population Level Cohort Study in Alberta, Canada

3 weeks 2 days ago

Since 2016, clinical guidelines have recommended SGLT2is for people with type 2 diabetes with heart failure. We examined SGLT2i dispensation, factors associated with dispensation, and heart failure hospitalization and all-cause mortality in people with diabetes and heart failure.

Plant-based and Early Time-restricted Eating for Prevention and Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in Adults: A Narrative Review

4 weeks 2 days ago

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a significant public health challenge for which effective lifestyle interventions are needed. A growing body of evidence supports the use of both plant-based eating patterns and early time-restricted eating (eTRE) for the prevention and treatment of T2D, but research has not yet explored the potential of these dietary strategies in combination. In this narrative review we assessed the evidence by which plant-based diets, in conjunction with eTRE, could support T2D care. The electronic databases MEDLINE and the Web of Science were searched for relevant articles published throughout the last decade.

Glycemic Control Among Adults With Type 1 Diabetes During Passover: A Pre–Post Single-center Study

1 month ago

No data are available regarding glycemic control of patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) during Passover. Our aim in this study was to assess the effect of Passover on diabetes management and glycemic control in adult patients with T1D with nutritional changes during Passover (observant) compared with patients who did not change their dietary habits during Passover (nonobservant).

Identification of Intervention Characteristics Within Diabetes Prevention Programs Using the Template for Intervention Description and Replication: A Scoping Review

1 month 2 weeks ago

Diabetes prevention programs (DPPs) targeting dietary and physical activity behaviour change have been shown to decrease the incidence of type 2 diabetes; however, a more thorough reporting of intervention characteristics is needed to expedite the translation of such programs into different communities. In this scoping review we aim to synthesize how DPPs are being reported and implemented.

Managing Medications During “Sick Days” in Patients With Diabetes, Kidney, and Cardiovascular Conditions: A Theory-informed Approach to Intervention Design and Implementation

1 month 3 weeks ago

Our aim in this work was to: 1) explore barriers and enablers to patient and health-care provider (HCP) behaviours related to sick-day medication guidance (SDMG), 2) identify theory-informed strategies to advise SDMG intervention design, and 3) obtain perspectives on an eHealth tool for this purpose.

The Juncture of Diabetes, Cancer, and Observational Population-based Studies: Novel Insights From Canadian Provincial Health Records

2 months ago

Whether cohort, case–control, or cross-sectional designs, observational studies that take information gleaned from population health records can provide insight into local disease trends, behaviours, and outcomes that are used to guide risk stratification, treatment responses, and disease descriptions. We need to always ask the question, “does this study apply to my patient?” … and, in this issue of the Journal, this question is particularly relevant. The outcomes reported in several articles come from Canadian provincial health system databases or electronic medical records, and therefore directly apply to our populations.

Working Together to Improve Type 2 Diabetes Care: A Participatory Design Project to Address Identified Needs of People With Diabetes and Their Health-care Professionals

2 months ago

Diabetes care in Australia is often fragmented and provider-centred, resulting in suboptimal care. Innovative solutions are needed to bridge the evidence–practice gap, and technology can facilitate the redesign of type 2 diabetes care. We used Participatory Design to increase the chances of fulfilling stakeholders’ needs. Using this method, we explored solutions aimed at redesigning diabetes care, focussing on the previously identified needs.

Glycoprotein Acetyls Associate With Intraglomerular Hemodynamic Dysfunction, Albuminuria, Central Adiposity, and Insulin Resistance in Youth With Type 1 Diabetes

2 months 1 week ago

Glycoprotein acetyls (GlycA's) are biomarkers of systemic inflammation and cardiovascular disease, yet little is known about their role in type 1 diabetes (T1D). In this study we examined the associations among GlycA's, central adiposity, insulin resistance, and early kidney injury in youth with T1D.
