A Longitudinal Study To Identify Early Non-invasive Ocular Markers of Diabetic Complications

This is a human subject study looking at the complications arising in newly diagnosed diabetic patients using non-invasive measures, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and corneal confocal microscope (CCM), indicative of peripheral neuropathy and diabetic retinopathy. Through the use of these devices we would like to determine the onset of corneal nerve fiber alterations and retinal thinning in newly diagnosed diabetics. This information could help investigators find early and reversible biomarkers to target for therapeutic options.

Complex interactions of behavior, genes, and environment in the multi-system characterization of the effects of sleep loss on health, cardio-metabolic disease risk, cognition, and the epigenome

The purpose of this study is to see what effects sleep restriction (sleeping less than needed each night for many nights in a row) has on metabolism, cardiovascular regulation, cognitive function, and epigenomic changes in various tissues. This is an 11-day inpatient study. All of the 11 days and nights of the study will be spent in your study room in the Clinical Research Center at Penn State where you will live for the entire 11 days and nights without going home. During different days of the study you will be participating in several study procedures. These include: • Having your sleep patterns recorded every night • Taking performance and memory tests at regular intervals on a tablet computer everyday • Taking tests during an fMRI on three different occasions • Having blood drawn while you stay sitting in bed for up to four hours at a stretch while we test how your body processes sugar, or food on six different occasions • Having a small sample of fat (adipose tissue) removed on 2 different occasions We will determine your eligibility to be in the study during a screening process that consists of 4 screening bisits. Each visit will take up to several hours to complete and the entire screening process will take about 3 weeks. Completion of all screening visits: $50 Daily rate while living in hospital during 11-day study: $150/day (total $1,650) Incentive bonus for completing entire 11-day laboratory study: $550 Payment upon full completion: $2,250

Can more sleep lead to improved metabolism in college students?

The purpose of this study is to examine how a sleep extension protocol affects glucose metabolism in college students. Study participants will be asked to participate in 2-week protocol with three in-person visits. Sleep will be measured in naturalistic settings using wearable devices (actigraphy). The first week will be a baseline assessment of habitual sleep followed by a second week of sleep extension. At the first visit we will obtain consent, collect subject information, and distribute study materials and devices. The second and third visits will take place the Clinical Research Center and will include an evaluation of collected sleep data and a meal response test, in which participants will eat a standardized breakfast and blood samples will collected frequently for approximately 3 hours.

A randomized, double blind controlled factorial clinical trial of edetate disodium-based chelation and high-dose oral vitamins and minerals to prevent recurrent cardiac events in diabetic patients with a prior myocardial infraction

We are trying to find out if chelation therapy in the vein and oral vitamins and minerals by mouth lower the risk of new heart problems, including another heart attack, chest pains, or heart surgery to open blood vessels. The therapy, chelation, is a drug given by vein that that sticks to heavy metals, like lead and cadmium, and takes them out of the body in the urine. These metals may lead to heart disease. A prior study suggested benefit with chelation therapy when given to patients who have had a myocardial infarction and have diabetes.

Dining with Diabetes in Pennsylvania

Penn State Extension's Dining with Diabetes program is an evidence-based community education program for people with or at risk for type 2 diabetes. The program teaches participants how to prevent or manage their disease by providing practical knowledge and strategies to make the necessary lifestyle changes that will lead to healthier living and reduction in the risk of complications. The overall goals and objectives of the program are as follows: Increasing knowledge of healthy food choices for families with or at risk for diabetes Promoting behavior changes by offering demonstrations and tasting of healthy food. Increasing knowledge of essential medical tests associated with diabetes management. Promoting physical activity as a component of diabetes control. Encouraging self-management and self-efficacy skill. Connecting participants to their healthcare providers for long-term follow-up. The program is designed to meet 4 consecutive weeks and then a 3 month follow-up. Participants A1c and blood pressure are taking at the first and follow-up classes. Classes consist of a nutrition lesson, physical activity, cooking demonstration and food tasting.

Patient Perceptions of Micro-Management of Insulin

The purpose of this project is to understand how people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) make moment-to-moment decisions about their insulin therapy, specifically whether to administer a dose of insulin at any given time and how much insulin to deliver. In this study, we will interview participants about a survey we developed (based on the initial IRB submission) regarding events that trigger decisions that need to be made about insulin and the kinds of decisions people make about insulin.

Raising a Child with T1D and Autism: Qualitative Thematic Analysis

We have utilized a previously completed forum and blog analysis conducted as STUDY00007977 to begin to identify to successes and challenges families raising a child with both T1D and autism experience. This study seeks to expand our knowledge through conducting interviews with families recruited both online and through the clinic. By using an Interview Guide created with our themes identified thus far, we will have a chance to expand on these themes through interviews, as well as hear from families that may not use the online community. We will recruit and interview families through the diabetes online community and through Penn State Hershey--6-8 of these families will have a child with optimal glycemic control and 6-8 of these families will have a child with suboptimal glycemic control. In addition to refining themes, this effort will help us assess the reliability, credibility, and validity of what was found via forum and blog analysis.

Micromanagement strategies in pump users with type 1 diabetes: What happens in day-to-day insulin use?

Because we know relatively little about the day-to-day process of insulin therapy in type 1 diabetes, we will systematically study insulin pumpers' experiences with daily micro-management. Many studies of insulin therapy implementation simply assess the degree to which people with diabetes report following the recommendations of their healthcare providers, or the frequency with which people with diabetes skip an insulin dose or give themselves less insulin than prescribed. We will assess the process through which people on insulin pumps self-manage their insulin therapy and the aspects of living that affect glycemic control. We will have participants report their daily glucose values, different treatment decisions that they have made, and overall management of their daily glucose. The success of diabetes self-management is dependent on the way these decisions are made and implemented. At the conclusion of this study, we will have developed a new conceptualization, or theory, of insulin treatment in type 1 diabetes that can be used in educational interventions to improve both self-management of blood glucose (SMBG) and A1c outcomes.
