Euglycemia should be achieved through a combination of diet therapy, which typically is 35 calories per ideal of body weight, and the use of insulin therapy and/or oral hypoglycemic agents, such as glyburide.
found that the responses of vascular endothelial growth factor to euglycemia and hypoglycemia were significantly different, with significant nadir and peak responses, respectively, in the 2 groups.
The purpose of this study was to measure the in vivo cholinergic-induced sweat rate during hypoglycemia, euglycemia and hyperglycemia.
There is a complex and delicate equilibrium between insulin, glucagon, somatostatin and incretins, each one has specific effects on blood glucose control, but they also have a deficient effect when exist cell damage and the result is the incapacity of the pancreas to maintain euglycemia.
Less glucose is required to maintain euglycemia during an euglycemic insulin-clamp in normal (diabetes free) pubertal children in Tanner stage II to IV, as compared to normal prepubertal children in Tanner stage I and adults, despite similar insulin levels in all age groups.
I don't try to bring down postmeal excursions until my patient has achieved waking euglycemia and then premeal euglycemia.
For patients with type I diabetes, the only reliable method to restore euglycemia is allotransplantation of functional islets containing insulin-producing [beta] cells.
The key to achieving euglycemia through exercise is ensuring the adequate duration and intensity of the activity.
Infants with diffuse disease will normally require a near-total pancreatectomy (95%-98%) to control the HI and might require additional therapy with diazoxide, octreotide, and/or frequent feedings to maintain euglycemia.
Efficacy, as indicated by duration of normal glucose levels, or euglycemia, will be assessed using continuous glucose monitoring and serum fructosamine levels.
Glucose tolerance, the ability to maintain euglycemia, depends on 3 events that must occur in a tightly coordinated fashion: (1) stimulation of insulin secretion; (2) insulin-mediated suppression of endogenous (primarily hepatic) glucose production; and (3) insulin-mediated stimulation of glucose uptake by peripheral tissues.
Diet alone does not achieve euglycemia in 10%-20% of women with gestational diabetes.
