[Presentation of an insulin-treated patient group within the scope of a 5-year study of the Diabetes Intervention Study (DIS)].

[Article in German]


The diabetes intervention study (DIS) is an intervention and examination programme which in dietetically conducible diabetics who freshly became manifest shall decrease the incidence of cardiovascular diseases and analyse the influence of various steps of intervention on the course of diabetes. In the course of 5 years 54 out of 988 patients were insulinized by reason of deteriorations of metabolism. There were no significant differences between the intervention and control group concerning age, sex, index of ideal weight, fasting blood glucose, quantity of injected insulin and duration of the insulin treatment. By means of a C-peptide short-time test following glucagon stimulation an attempt of differentiation into type 1 and type 2 diabetics, was performed and compared with the results in literature.
