KADIS The Karlsburg diabetes management system KADIS® - the world´s unique computer program for fast and reliable testing of individual therapy options - developed by the Institute of Diabetes »Gerhardt Katsch« Karlsburg/Germany.

Diabetes risk check

The goal of this diabetes risk check is to give you an idea as well as to show chances for reduction of your diabetes risk. Of course there is no change possible in the question for heridity, but you can reduce the risk by a healthy nutrition and also by doing exercise. You will reduce your body weight to a normal range and will reduce you diabetes risk. Questions 2 to 5 are responsible for this and with the following questionnaire you can test how many points you can reduce the diabetes risk.

Blood glucose monitoring


The Karlsburg Diabetes Management System KADIS® is especially useful for general practitioners to optimize glycemic control of their patients. In order to generate an evidence-based patient-specific decision support, KADIS® needs to be adapted to both the acute metabolic situation and subject characteristics. A prerequisite in order to do so is estimation of the "Characteristic 24-h Glucose Profile (CTP)".

Estimation of the CTP requires - except of baseline data such as age, gender, type of diabetes, body height and weight - a few home-monitored self-control data including blood glucose, antidiabetic drugs, timing and dosage of insulin and food intake. Glucose measurements may be performed by either hand-held blood glucose meters or by continuous glucose monitoring systems. Estimation of the CTP by conventional fingerstick glucose readings requires multiple glucose measurements a day. Based on an analysis of the patients´ life style and daybook data we provide a time schedule to perform the finger sticks measurements to be suitable for determination of the CTP. In case glucose monitoring is going to be performed by automatic recording, a tiny glucose sensor is inserted usually beneath the skin of the patients´ abdomen and connected to a monitor. Such a continuous glucose monitoring system is able to record glucose measurements every 5 min for up to 72 h. Every 6-8 h fingerstick glucose readings need to be entered into the monitor for calibration.

Even if the methods of glucose measurements may be different, dependent on the conditions in the general practice, monitoring of the self-control data (administration of insulin, antidiabetic drugs, food intake) including the baseline data (age, gender, type of diabetes, body height and weight) should preferably be done by using the DCC´s interactive self-control data collection sheet (SK-Datenerfassungsbogen®). Making use of the tele-communication system TeleDIAB®, patients can easily transfer their self-control data to the DCC® via a protected individual data channel and the doctor, on the other hand, can download the patients´ data compiled and formated by the DCC® to his practice computer.

Home-monitored self-control of blood glucose is an important part of metabolic control - Usage of continous glucose monitoring system can increase quality and validity of the blood glucose profile.
