Brief Summary:
Glargine treatment can improve the clinical features in Cystic Fibrosis patients affected by glucose derangements

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cystic Fibrosis Glucose Metabolism Disorders Drug: Glargine Phase 4

Detailed Description:
To evaluate the effect of glargine treatment on BMI, lung function, acute pulmonary infections and HbA1c in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with different glucose derangements, eighty-seven patients were screened for glucose derangements with fasting hyperglycaemia or abnormalities at the oral glucose tolerance test. They were classified on the basis of a "gluco-score" ranging 0-5. Patients with gluco-score > 1 were treated with glargine. We report on the results of the first 20 patients who completed 12 months of treatment. BMI z-score, forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1), number of acute lung infections in the previous year and HbA1c were the study outcomes.
