Summary

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease of high socio-health relevance for their clinical and economic implications (risk of complications, disability ...) (healthcare costs). Strict glycemic control and intensive treatment and support have shown long-term patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) improved health. The intensive insulin therapy involves the administration of insulin through 3 or more injections per day (MDI), or through a continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII). New technologies applied to the treatment of DM1, such as telemedicine, could bring benefits to patients. The available scientific evidence to date shows that telemedicine systems have beneficial or neutral effects on glycemic control, expressed in terms of HbA1c in patients with type 1 diabetes treated with MDI or CSII. They have also shown not to worsen the quality of life and reduce the costs associated with the care of these subjects. However, studies published to date are generally short follow-up, small sample size, and have not evaluated other biological parameters such as glycemic variability, inflammatory markers and markers of oxidative stress as well as a psychological assessment including depression, anxiety, Diabetes-related distress and fear of hypoglycemia. It has been designed a randomized crossover 18 months in order to study the effect of a telemedicine program in a group of subjects with DM1 in CSII on clinical variables of metabolic control variables, including parameters of glycemic variability, markers of inflammation and oxidative stress, psychological variables and quality of life, and associated costs.
