• insulin
  • Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes is characterized by insufficient insulin receptors to effect proper glucose control after insulin is released (insulin resistance). (health.am)
  • The patient has increased hunger due to excess insulin release as a result of elevated glucose levels. (health.am)
  • Type 2 diabetics are not ketosis-prone due to the presence of insulin, but do develop a condition of hyperglycemic hyperosmolarity during pregnancy, generally after an episode of vomiting and diarrhea in which the patient replaced fluids with glucose solutions. (health.am)
  • blood

  • Within one week of enrollment, women in the treatment group receive formal nutritional counseling and will be instructed on the technique of self blood glucose monitoring using a memory-based reflectance meter. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The device can be easily adapted to provide continuous blood glucose monitoring and blood oxygen level and maintain a history of these measurements. (e3mproject.eu)
