The Diabetic Foot-Pain-Depression Cycle: Results from a Clinical Cohort #Depression #DiabeticFoot #Pain #ActAgainstAmputation #Diabetes

This work from our combined Dartmouth, SALSA USC and SMU team led by Brandon Brooks Abstract Background: More than 86,000 Americans with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) undergo nontraumatic lower-extremity amputations annually. The opioid-prescribing practice of podiatric surgeons remains understudied. We hypothesized that patients with T2DM who undergo any forefoot amputation while using antidepressant medication will...

What’s the prevalence of prediabetes, worldwide? @DiabetesCareADA

Click above for superb data from Rooney and coworkers. OBJECTIVE To estimate the global, regional, and national prevalence of prediabetes, defined by impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or impaired fasting glucose (IFG). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We reviewed 7,014 publications for high-quality estimates of IGT (2-h glucose, 7.8–11.0 mmol/L [140–199 mg/dL]) and IFG (fasting glucose, 6.1–6.9... Continue Reading →

Residual Osteomyelitis after Conservative Surgery for Diabetic Foot Infection Does Not Increase Recurrence Risk, Study Finds #Diabetes #DiabeticFoot #Osteomyelitis

Introduction:A recent study conducted by our colleagues from the Canary Islands, Aragon-Sanchez et al., investigated the association between residual osteomyelitis at the resection margin and the recurrence of diabetic foot infection. The researchers aimed to determine if positive bone margins, confirmed by microbiology and pathology, were linked to worse outcomes. The findings provide valuable insights... Continue Reading →

Study: Fully automated closed loop artificial pancreas

The study from colleagues in Cambridge published in the journal Nature Medicine found that a fully closed-loop insulin delivery system (CamAPS HX) improved glucose control in adults with type 2 diabetes, compared to standard insulin therapy and a masked glucose sensor (control). The proportion of time in the target glucose range was 66.3% with closed-loop... Continue Reading →

Lower Extremity Amputations: A Scorecard Two Decades After the St Vincent Declaration #ActAgainstAmputation #DiabeticFoot @ALPSlimb @USC @USC_vascular @ResearchatUSC @KeckSchool_USC

For those of you who remember the 1989 St. Vincent's Declaration, this will be a blast from the past! November 14 is World Diabetes Day, chosen because it is the birthday of Dr Fredrick Banting, one of the codiscoverers of insulin. The 2022 theme is “education to protect tomorrow,” with a focus on providing “access... Continue Reading →

Artificial Intelligence for Predicting and Diagnosing Complications of Diabetes

This from Hong and coworkers under the aegis of David Klonoff. We're pleased to have participated as well. Artificial intelligence can use real-world data to create models capable of making predictions and medical diagnosis for diabetes and its complications. The aim of this commentary article is to provide a general perspective and present recent advances... Continue Reading →

Association between Preventive Podiatric Care and Outcomes of New Diabetic Foot Ulceration among Patients with End Stage Renal Disease @USC @KeckSchool_USC, @USC_Vascular @TzeWoeiTan @APMA @ALPSLIMB @VascularCures @VascularSVS

This was just presented by our team at the American Diabetes Association annual symposium. We're thrilled that Tze Woei Tan, lead author, was awarded the Marvin Levin Award for top abstract in its category. The study, the first of its kind, evaluated more than 50,000 patients. Those that received podiatric care prior to developing a... Continue Reading →
