A Study On Electric Fields In Tissues
Wounds heal slowly in patients with diabetes and they lead to ulcers, gangrene and amputation. Researchers found that slow healing of wounds in patients with diabetes is associated with weaker currents in wounds and they delay healing (or non-healing) process. Electric fields are associated with living body tissues. The research team was led by Prof Min Zhao (ophthalmology and of dermatology) at University of California, Davis. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
A Study On Exenatide Drug
Liver inflammation will be caused due to fat deposits in the liver and is called NAFLD. NAFLD is a common liver disease and it is very difficult to diagnose it. NAFLD condition will finally obstruct the functioning of the liver. A study led by Dr. Amailia Gastaldelli shows Exenatide drug helps in
- Decreasing glucose production in the liver
- Increasing uptake of glucose in liver tissue
- Decreasing insulin resistance in liver tissue
Obesity is an indicator for NAFLD. NAFLD can be diagnosed by
- MRI scan
- Liver tissue biopsy
- Ultrasound scan of the abdomen (less precise way)
Dr. Kenneth Cusi (endocrinologist) says liver contains fat in almost 80 percent of diabetes patients. Liver fat is due to high intake of the carbohydrates.
Risks With Long Work Hours
A study by Ohio State University found that risks of heart attack, arthritis, cancer and diabetes will be more in women who work for more than 40 hours per week during the bulk of their career. The risk of arthritis was found with men those worked for long hours, no other chronic diseases. Allard Dembe is the lead author of the study. The study was published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
Risk With Sedentary Life Style (Couch Potato Behavior)
Research done by Maastricht University, Netherlands found that too much sitting before computer or TV is a risk factor to premature death. Even an extra 40 minutes of sedentary life will increase the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). A scientific review of over 45 studies done last year found that too much sitting increases the risk of getting a disease and that disease will kill an individual even if he does exercise. According to WHO, physical inactivity is identified as 4th leading risk factor for death in an individual. One solution is to get up and walk for few minutes while sitting for a long duration. The study was published in the journal Diabetologia.
Risks With Invokana and Invokamet
FDA warns individuals about serious kidney failure risks associated with the usage of
- Invokana and Invokamet drugs manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals (basically Canagliflozin)
- Farxiga and Xigduo XR by AstraZeneca manufactured by AstraZeneca (basically dapagliflozin)
Risk With Low testosterone in men
Senior author of the study, Dr. Franck Mauvais Jarvis says testosterone is an anti-diabetic hormone for men. Testosterone regulates blood sugar levels in men and low testosterone raises the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in men. The risk of low testosterone in men doubles with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Low testosterone in men can influence the development of insulin resistance or lower insulin sensitivity.
The Risk Of Nephropathy With Vitamin D Deficiency
Nephropathy disease happens when protein is spilled into the urine. Individual gets diabetic nephropathy (DN) during the chronic end stage of the renal or kidney disease. Development of diabetic nephropathy (DN) can be effectively prevented by using renin-angiotensin inhibitors. Evidence shows that vitamin D may delay development of diabetic nephropathy (DN). Previous studies indicated vitamin D deficiency among people suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD).
A Study On Teens Brains
A research team from The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center found an association between the gray matter in the brain and abilities to pronounce unfamiliar words. Researchers scanned brains of two groups of teens, one with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the other without blood sugar levels. Researchers found less gray matter in six regions and more gray matter in three regions in teens with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Researchers found the only association between gray matter and type 2 diabetes (T2D). The study author Dr. Jacob Redel wants to conduct a larger study to find the relation between gray matter present in the brain with (a) High blood sugar levels (b) Brain functions such as memory, attention etc. Experts say the gray matter is the region where thinking occurs.
Risks With Metabolic Conditions During Pregnancy
Researchers from UC Davis MIND Institute have found that mothers of children with autism and metabolic conditions during pregnancy were likely to have anti-fetal brain autoantibodies (three times) in their blood compared with women of children with autism. Higher prevalence of anti-fetal brain autoantibodies found in the women with other metabolic conditions such as high blood pressure and high body mass index (BMI). Researchers studied 227 mother/child and the study was published in the journal Autism Research.
Risks With Glycation End Products (AGEs)
AGE stand for glycation end-products and high heat processed animal products contains AGEs. Eating AGEs foods increases risks for Alzheimer's disease and development of metabolic syndrome (a risk factor for diabetes) and insulin resistance. Meat consumption contributes to Alzheimer's disease and disease attacks brain long before any symptoms of brain problems or chronic memory disorders (dementia) arise. Drug trials are failing because of the delayed treatment process. Other factors contributing to Alzheimer's disease are
- Genes inherited from family history
- High cholesterol levels
- High Blood pressure (BP) levels
- Hormones Changes in the women
- CVD factors
- High sugar levels and diabetics
- High heated Grilled meat
Individuals with low AGEs levels are healthy. It is better to cook under lower heat levels in the presence of water. The study was done by Helen Vlassara at Icahn School of Medicine, New York. The study was published in the National Academy of Sciences.
Risks With Oral Contraceptive Pill
South Korean scientists from Kyungpook National University College of Medicine in Daegu says long-term use of oral contraceptive will increase the risk of the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and insulin resistance in the body during later stages of the life. The research findings were presented in the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) 76th Scientific Sessions in New Orleans.
