Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) (fasting glucose 110-125 mg/dl and glycaemia 2 hours after glucose load [greater than or equal to]140 mg/dl);
Blood tests: CBC, glycaemia, cholesterol, creatinine etc.
Because potatoes have a high glycaemia index, these starchy carbohydrates rapidly transform into sugars in the body, triggering a sharp rise in blood sugar levels.
The biochemical and haematological laboratory works (every six months) were the following: serum creatinine, creatinine clearance, glycaemia, transaminase, microalbuminuria, lipid profile, complete blood count.
Among the parameters evaluated were the glycaemia, ROS production, lipid peroxidation, protein carbonylation, and nonprotein thiols levels in liver, as well as the activities of enzymes 5-ALA-D, SOD, and CAT in liver.
In particular, self-monitoring of both blood pressure and glycaemia are important to assess the efficacy of prescribed therapies, and can help the patient to better understand the importance of control of blood pressure and blood glucose.
Whilst alteration of macronutrient composition of a meal has been demonstrated to affect postprandial glucose levels, little data exists on the effect of food order on postprandial glycaemia.
Trajectories of glycaemia, insulin sensitivity, and insulin secretion before diagnosis of type 2 diabetes: an analysis from the Whitehall II study.
The system predicts at any time how a change of insulin dosage will impact patient glycaemia levels in the next few hours and computes the optimal dose, especially at mealtime.
Therefore, although there are many causes, in short, diabetes mellitus is a chronic illness that requires multifactorial risk reduction strategies besides glycemic control and in which one of these strategies is the self-monitoring of glycaemia (ADA, 2015).
