  • types of diabetic
  • There are four main types of diabetic neuropathy. (mayoclinic.org)
  • Three different types of diabetic coma are identified: Severe low blood sugar in a diabetic person Diabetic ketoacidosis (usually type 1) advanced enough to result in unconsciousness from a combination of a severely increased blood sugar level, dehydration and shock, and exhaustion Hyperosmolar nonketotic coma (usually type 2) in which an extremely high blood sugar level and dehydration alone are sufficient to cause unconsciousness.

  • bulla
  • A diabetic bulla (also known as "Bullosis diabeticorum" and "Bullous eruption of diabetes mellitus") is a cutaneous condition characterized by a noninflammatory, spontaneous, painless blister, often in acral locations (peripheral body parts, such as feet, toes, hands, fingers, ears or nose), seen in diabetic patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypoglycemia
  • Diabetic hypoglycemia is a low blood glucose level occurring in a person with diabetes mellitus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diabetic hypoglycemia can be mild, recognized easily by the patient, and reversed with a small amount of carbohydrates eaten or drunk, or it may be severe enough to cause unconsciousness requiring intravenous dextrose or an injection of glucagon. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is rare but possible for diabetic hypoglycemia to result in brain damage or death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diabetic Hypoglycemia is a triannual open access peer-reviewed medical journal published by ESP Bioscience. (wikipedia.org)
  • cheiroarthropathy
  • Diabetic cheiroarthropathy is a cutaneous condition characterized by thickened skin and limited joint mobility of the hands and fingers, leading to flexion contractures, a condition associated with diabetes mellitus and it is observed in roughly 30% of diabetic patients with longstanding disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • progresses
  • One particularity of diabetic cardiomyopathy is the long latent phase, during which the disease progresses but is completely asymptomatic. (wikipedia.org)
  • glycemic control
  • Although intervention studies with nuts have not demonstrated considerable benefits for diabetic individuals in terms of long- or short-term glycemic control, nuts may help diabetic individuals depress postprandial glycemia, reduce postprandial oxidative stress, and improve blood lipid profiles ( 4 ).

  • disease
  • Diabetic eye disease comprises a group of eye conditions that affect people with diabetes. (nih.gov)
  • Early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care of diabetic eye disease can protect against vision loss. (nih.gov)
  • What is diabetic eye disease? (nih.gov)
  • Treatment of diabetic retinopathy varies depending on the extent of the disease. (aoa.org)
  • Although diabetic kidney disease is the most prevalent cause of end-stage renal disease and the disease most often leading to chronic renal replacement therapy and kidney transplantation, there has been, in recent years, a steady increase in basic and clinical knowledge of the problem. (springer.com)
  • Not always in total agreement, their views reflect the present state of knowledge and its uncertainties, and offer a composite of different authoritative views on the causes of diabetic kidney disease. (springer.com)
  • Diabetic Myonecrosis (Rare And Ominous Complication Of A Common Disease)" (PDF). (wikipedia.org)
  • They are specially designed shoes, or shoe inserts, intended to reduce the risk of skin breakdown in diabetics with pre-existing foot disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most heart failure in people with diabetes results from coronary artery disease, and diabetic cardiomyopathy is only said to exist if there is no coronary artery disease to explain the heart muscle disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • In most cases, diabetic cardiomyopathy is detected with concomitant hypertension or coronary artery disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • These changes are accompanied by a variety of electrocardiographic changes that may be associated with diabetic cardiomyopathy in 60% of patients without structural heart disease, although usually not in the early asymptomatic phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Given that diabetic cardiomyopathy's definition excludes concomitant atherosclerosis or hypertension, there are no changes in perfusion or in atrial natriuretic peptide levels up until the very late stages of the disease, when the hypertrophy and fibrosis become very pronounced. (wikipedia.org)
  • wound
  • Armstrong DG, Lavery LA, Harkless LB. Validation of a diabetic wound classification system. (springer.com)
  • Many studies show a prolonged inflammatory phase in diabetic wounds, which causes a delay in the formation of mature granulation tissue and a parallel reduction in wound tensile strength. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment of diabetic foot ulcers should include: blood sugar control, removal of dead tissue from the wound, wound dressings, and removing pressure from the wound through techniques such as total contact casting. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is recommended however that the antibiotics used for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers should be used after deep tissue culture of the wound. (wikipedia.org)
  • patient
  • NEI supports research to develop new therapies for diabetic retinopathy, and to compare the effectiveness of existing therapies for different patient groups. (nih.gov)

  • Also, the diabetic patient may show subtle signs of diabetic cardiomyopathy related to decreased left ventricular compliance or left ventricular hypertrophy or a combination of both. (wikipedia.org)
  • An example might be a physician working in an emergency department who receives an unconscious patient wearing a medical identification tag saying DIABETIC. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • Early detection and treatment can limit the potential for significant vision loss from diabetic retinopathy. (aoa.org)
