|Abstract||To investigate the quality of glycaemic control that is achievable in diabetic patients with persistent proteinuria and asymptomatic but declining renal function three matched groups of patients were studied. The first comprised diabetics with proteinuria receiving continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion; the second, diabetics without proteinuria receiving continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion; and the third, diabetics with proteinuria receiving conventional insulin treatment. Glycaemic control in patients receiving continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion was shown to be appreciably worse during the daytime in diabetics with proteinuria than in diabetics without proteinuria, although greatly superior to that in diabetics with proteinuria receiving conventional insulin treatment. The loss of glycaemic control in patients with proteinuria receiving continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion probably occurred as a response to daytime hypoglycaemia and a consequent reduction in the proportion of the total insulin dose given prandially. Difficulty in controlling blood glucose concentrations may be a factor in the failure of intensified insulin regimens to influence the progression of diabetic renal disease.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
