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.

KADIS®-based "weak point analysis"

To reveal deficits in metabolic control of an individual diabetic patient KADIS®-based "weak point" analysis is carried out at the DCC® by a comprehensive computerized tracking system, analyzing and displaying graphically in a quantitative as well as qualitative fashion the daily course of glycemia in relation to the patients´ 24-h insulin action profile and food intake pattern. Prior to this analysis, KADIS® need to be adapted to the acute metabolic situation of the individual patient. KADIS® is as yet world-wide the first, clinically proved computer decision support system or diabetes management program able to adapt to the acute metabolic control of a specific patient under ambulatory conditions on the basis of blood glucose measurements and self-control data.

Weak point analysis

For adequate glycemic control glucose levels should stay in the range between 3.9 mmol/l (70 mg/dl) and 8.3 mmol/l (150 mg/dl) throughout the whole day. In patients whose glycemic control is inadequate, glucose levels fall below the lower or exceed the upper limit of this target range. KADIS®-based analysis enables to enumerate these excursions, called "weak points", and to display them in a graphic format of the glycemic profiles characteristic for the specific patient. By simultaneous calculation of both the individual 24-h insulin action profile and 24-h food intake pattern in association to the 24-h glucose profile, KADIS® offers the unique opportunity for general practitioners and patients to gain quick insight into the causal relationship between "weak points" in the characteristic 24 h glycemic profiles and overall quality of metabolic control. This interactive decision support system KADIS® has the potential to improve evidence-based parameters of metabolic control known to lead directly to reduced morbidity and mortality in diabetes.

Only KADIS® supports the calculation and evaluation of individual 24 h- profiles of blood glucose, insulin action and food intake.
