In a nutshell This study is looking for patients with diabetes taking insulin to test a mobile app that helps patients understand how blood glucose levels change. The main outcome that will be measured is the average blood glucose level at the beginning versus the end of the study. This study is recruiting in Boston, MA, the US. The details...Read More

Is insulin degludec a more effective treatment for low blood sugar in patients with type 1 diabetes?
In a nutshell This study investigated if insulin degludec was as effective as insulin glargine U100 in reducing rates of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in patients with type 1 diabetes. They found that patients receiving insulin degludec had a reduced risk of hypoglycemia compared to those receiving insulin glargine U100. Some background...Read More
In a nutshell This study investigated the prevalence of hypoglycemia (dangerously low blood glucose) and awareness of hypoglycemia in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The study concluded that at least 1 in 5 adults with T1D had experienced severe hypoglycemia in the last 6 months, and/or had impaired awareness of hypoglycemia (IAH). Some background...Read More
Looking for type 1 diabetes patients to evaluate a new way of reducing the fear of low blood sugar levels.
In a nutshell This trial recruiting in Israel aims to evaluate the effectiveness of biofeedback, virtual reality, and education in helping patients cope with the fear of hypoglycemia (very low blood sugar levels). The main outcome being investigated is a decrease in the fear of hypoglycemia. The details In diabetes blood sugar levels that...Read More
In a nutshell This study examined whether glucose levels can predict night-time hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetics. Some background Lower blood glucose (sugar) levels in patients with type 1 diabetes can reduce the risk of developing complications. However, patients then have a higher risk of experiencing hypoglycemia (dangerously low...Read More
In a nutshell This study examined the effects of low blood sugar levels on the working memory and language in type 1 diabetics. Some background Low blood glucose (sugar) levels can result in impaired brain function. During periods of low blood glucose, it is believed that the brain areas controlling working memory and language are affected. The...Read More
In a nutshell This study examined the effect of islet transplantation on hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes patients. Some background A normal pancreas produces both insulin and glucagon. These hormones perform opposite functions: insulin decreases blood glucose levels while glucagon...Read More
Comparing the effects of vildagliptin and glimepiride on glucose fluctuations in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
In a nutshell This study compared the effects of vildagliptin (Zomelis) and glimepiride (Amaryl) on the rise and fall of blood glucose levels (glucose fluctuations) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Some background Patients with T2DM do not produce enough insulin (or are resistant to insulin) necessary to properly use the...Read More
