Risks With Air Pollution Linked CVD Risk
Researchers found that an individual exposed to high levels of air pollution for 3 months duration rises blood glucose levels and cardiovascular disease risks especially in diabetes patients. The study was conducted between 2003 and 2012 with more than 73,000 adults in southern Israel. The study was led by senior author Dr Victor Novack MD PhD, Soroka University Medical Center and Ben-Gurion University in Beer Sheva, Israel. The was published published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Risks With Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) In Children
Meena Chhabra, a Delhi based diabetologist says cases of type 1 diabetes (T1D) among children have risen from 1% to 5% during the last couple of years in India due to obesity and poor diet. Main reason for the incidents of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in children are due to destruction of beta cells which produce insulin. Symptoms in children for type 1 diabetes (T1D) are increased urination, hunger, thirst, infections and fatigue. type i diabetes (T1D) usually starts in an individual at young age while type ii diabetes (T2D) starts in an individual during adulthood.
About Hypo Hub Of Novo
Danish firm Novo Nordisk created online diabetes management resources (Hypo Hub) for UK patients to educate public on the signs and impact of hypoglycemia or hypos. The newly created platform encourages patients to talk about their hypoglycemia and take guidance. Hypoglycemia is a common complication with diabetes patients but patients may not recognize it. Hypoglycemia happens when blood glucose levels goes too low. Symptoms for Hypoglycemia are
Usability Study Of WellDoc BlueStar Mobile App
A study conducted by WellDoc shows that large percentage of type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients were engaged with BlueStar mobile App and most of them sent mobile App reports to their care team. LifeScan's blood glucose monitor is going to be integrate with the BlueStar mobile App. BlueStar mobile App is free to download but need a prescription. BlueStar mobile App provides health management tools and real time diabetes management guidance. BlueStar mobile App provides actionable information and reports with the blood glucose levels data provided by the patient.
Device To Predict Diabetes
A research team developed new diagnostic system to predict on set of diabetes. Researchers developed a sensor which can trap specific molecules in the blood and give signal for on set of diabetes within 5 years. Positively diagnosed people will get opportunity to change their diet and lifestyle. Prototype and trials were yet to take place but the team is hopeful of bringing the device into market in 2/3 years time frame. Researchers belong to Nottingham Trent University and Cardiff University.
About Diabetes In Women
Higher health risks in diabetes women are heart disease, blindness, depression and urinary infection. Screening tests for diabetes are
Risks With Mother's Gestational Diabetes To Daughters
Study conducted by Ai Kubo (Epidemiologist) shows early development of puberty in daughters can happen (2.5 times more likely) due to obesity and diabetes during pregnancy of the mothers. The study outcome is based on sample of 421 girls and their mothers in Northern California. Author says understanding causes of early onset of puberty is key in designing prevention strategies. Adverse health risks increases with early puberty such as
The findings were published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
Diabetes Link To Depression
Risk to depression will double for a diabetes patient. Prof Dr Sherita Golden at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, says stress hormone cortisol will be produced due to depression and produced cortisol hormone leads to insulin buildup and finally to diabetes. Parts of brain too can be impacted due to the high glucose levels.
Transplanting Laboratory Grown Beta Cells
Dr David K C Cooper during 76th scientific session of ADA said approximately 1000 islet transplantations to patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) have been performed during the last decade. But problem with islet transplantations is the requirement is huge. Researchers conducted trials of genetically modified islets to non humans and long term results of the trials were successful. Researchers says it is possible to transplant islets of pigs to humans suffering with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and prevent diabetes related complications. Dr Chad A Cowan (Harvard Stem Cell Institute) and his colleagues are producing new set of insulin producing beta cells from laboratory grown stem cells. Difficulties with islet transplantations are
Producing islets in laboratory and transplanting them into human body by protecting them against immune system is called regenerative medicine techniques. If this technique is successful, it is possible to treat other diseases such as cancer, sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.
Risks With Antibiotics Usage
Findings of a study done by researchers from UBC Okanagan shows that prolonged and over usage of antibiotics accelerate the disruption of gut bacteria. The gut bacteria disruption leads to onset of type 1 diabetes (T1D). They say early life events are critical and usage of antibiotics will alter normal development of gut and subsequent healthy body development. The study shows link between bacteria, immune system of the body and development of type 1 diabetes (T1D). Researchers says further study required to identify the bacteria that protects body against type 1 diabetes (T1D) and the results may help us in development of specific antibiotics in future. The findings were published in the Nature Groups ISME Journal.
Trials With Tradjenta Linagliptin Drug
Results from Helsinki T2D shows that type ii diabetes (T2D) patients can use prescription based medicine Tradjenta (linagliptin) along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar levels. This medicine is not intended for type i diabetic (T1D) patients or to patients suffering with diabetic ketoacidosis. 50% of the type 2 diabetes patients (T2D) have long term problems with kidneys and kidneys treatment options are limited for them. High glucose levels in the blood can damage kidneys. The early stage of kidney disease (known as albuminuria) is when albumin protein of kidneys leaked into urine. Tradjenta drug does not require dosage adjustment irrespective of renal function and it is once in a day therapy. Side affects of Tradjenta are stuffy nose, sore throat, cough and diarrhea.
