  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to find out the effects of hypoglycemia on cognition in healthy individuals and how well changes in (interstitial) tissue glucose levels correlate with changes in cognitive function as compared to blood glucose levels.

Condition Intervention
Hypoglycemia Procedure: euglycemic and hypoglycemic clamp

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Blood/Interstitial Glucose Measurements and Cognitive Function During Hypoglycemia and Recovery

Further study details as provided by Joslin Diabetes Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • cognitive function correlation to blood or interstitial glucose [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    This investigator initiated study will evaluate cognitive function at the onset, during and following recovery from hypoglycemia and will determine if cognitive function correlates better with blood or interstitial glucose concentrations.


Enrollment: 20
Actual Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2015
Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Euglycemic and hypoglycemic clamp
Subjects will complete clamp study visit.
Procedure: euglycemic and hypoglycemic clamp
Subjects will undergo standard euglycemic and hypoglycemic clamps, and will have concurrent assessments of cognitive function and measurement of interstitial glucose concentrations.
Other Name: clamp

Detailed Description:
Subjects will undergo hypoglycemic clamps during which interstitial glucose will be measured and cognitive function will be assessed.
