Researchers examined the choroidal layer thickness in eyes of patients with diabetes to compare the findings based on medical history of systemic diabetes treatments and stage of diabetic retinopathy.
One-hour plasma glucose is a useful predictor of retinopathy risk, has a predictive value similar to that of 2-hour plasma glucose, and may be considered as an alternative glucose time point during an oral glucose tolerance test.
This is the first device authorized for marketing that provides a screening decision without the need for clinician interpretation.
Results so far (at week 24) show more than half of patients who received Eylea experienced a 2-step or greater improvement from baseline on the DRSS vs. patients who received a sham injection (58% vs 6%; P<0.0001).
For patients with diabetic macular edema, repeated ranibizumab treatment does not appear to be associated with impaired macular perfusion.
Study found that the absence of proliferative diabetic retinopathy in those with stage 3b chronic kidney disease is associated with a lower prevalence of cardiovascular disease in patients with long duration of type 1 diabetes.
For patients with diabetic macular edema, persistence is more likely with bevacizumab than with aflibercept or ranibizumab.
There was an independent association between high diet soft drink consumption and the likelihood of having proliferative diabetic retinopathy; there was no association seen between regular soda drink consumption and diabetic retinopathy.
A novel deep learning system has high sensitivity and specificity for identifying diabetic retinopathy.
Growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) agonists protect against diabetic retinopathy in animal modelJanuary 19, 2018
GHRH and GHRH receptor levels are decreased in diabetic rats and humans. Administration of GHRH agonists to diabetic rats reversed signs of diabetic retinopathy.
Among Asians, individuals with mild and moderate diabetic retinopathy are more likely to have fallen, and greater perceived barriers to diabetes self-management are associated with the severity of DR in an Asian population.
Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes.
New recommendations suggest that frequency of diabetic retinopathy screening should be guided by patients' HbA1c levels.
Sleep apnea was independently linked to sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy in type 2 diabetes.
Retinal telescreenings increased the evaluation rate for diabetic retinopathy.
Three anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) therapies were linked to lowered rates of diabetic retinopathy.
Investigators found a link between the RUNX1 gene and proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
Black and Latino youth were less likely to undergo an eye examination for diabetic retinopathy within 6 years of their diagnosis.
Cumulative probability of proliferative diabetic retinopathy worsening was 42% in the panretinal photocoagulation group compared with 34% in the ranibizumab group.
Patients with diabetic macular edema experienced lower total retinal blood flow than patients without.
There are fewer cases of incident diabetic retinopathy among obese patients with type 2 diabetes undergoing bariatric surgery compared with medical treatment.
Vitreous levels of alphaB-crystallin are significantly higher in eyes of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) compared with the eyes of controls without diabetes.
Self-care tools can reduce depressive symptoms in patients with age-related macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy.
An algorithm based on deep machine learning may help identify diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema with high specificity and sensitivity.
Patients and health care providers have markedly divergent perceptions of barriers to diabetic retinopathy screening.
Treated diabetic retinopathy is extremely rare among children with type 1 diabetes, according to research published in Diabetes Care.
Researchers attributed nearly 5 million cases of blindness or impaired vision to complications from diabetes.
For patients with diabetes, 2 servings of fatty fish a week may be enough to lower their risk of diabetic retinopathy.
A study in Australia shows that general practitioners referred patients for a diabetic retinopathy screening on an average of 3.1 years after diabetes diagnosis.
Severe nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy or proliferative diabetic retinopathy, but not diabetic macular edema, is associated with depressive symptoms.
