[Dynamic changes in the hemostatic indices of diabetics during biostator control].Vutr Boles. 1989; 28(5):41-5.VB
In 25 patients with insulin-dependent diabetes and without microangiopathic complications the main hemostatic inhibitors antithrombin III, alpha-2-macroglobulin, and alpha-2-antiplasmin were examined before and after an optimal compensation of the carbohydrate metabolism was achieved. The patients were treated for 24 hours with the help of an artificial endocrine pancreas--biostator. The initial mean value of hyperglycemia of 15.61 mmol/l fell significantly to a mean value of 5.67 mmol/l at the end of the 24 hour treatment. During this 24 hour period the levels of the indices followed up did not change significantly. They were as follows: antithrombin III--98.48%, alpha-2-macroglobulin--112.25%, alpha-2-antiplasmin--110.68%. The lack of changes in the hemostatic inhibitors is explained by the short term biostator treatment.
