Caractéristiques des patients pris en charge dans une unité de soins aigus aux malades Alzheimer et impact du diabète sur les profils comportementaux : étude rétrospective

Abstract : Introduction: The incidence of diabetes is increasing constantly, such as neurodegenerative diseases, in which behavioral disorders are often associated. Acute care units for Alzheimer patients exist, but have no formal status. The objective of this work is to characterize the patients hospitalized in these units and demonstrate the potential impact of diabetes in terms of behavior. Method: This is a retrospective study on social, clinical and laboratory parameters, involving 317 patients hospitalized in an acute care unit for Alzheimer patients. All data have been included in the EPI- Info version 6 software for calculating statistical tests. Diabetics and non-diabetics were compared on different parameters. The retrospective behavioral assessment was made from a score, on a scale inspired by the NPI. Conclusion: Neurodegenerative diseases are under-diagnosed and their evolution is not enough anticipated. The first mission of acute care units is hampered by a large share of social work (personal situations and diseases often seen late). The impact of diabetes on the behavioral profiles is more important on the physiological symptoms than behavioral symptoms. There is an interest in better management of diabetes, pain syndromes and limiting the iatrogenic risk, including the prescription of psychotropic drugs, too frequent.
