Risks With Irregular Eating Patterns
A study on the eating patterns shows that irregular meal patterns affect metabolism, appetite, the rate of burning calories, body fat and diabetes. Planned regular meals help the body in losing weight and under eating. Overeating is because of irregular eating and under eating. The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Benefits With Low GI Diet
Researchers from the Clinical Nutrition Research Center (CNRC) says that low glycemic index (GI) breakfast and afternoon snack is important in keeping the blood sugar under control throughout the day. Glycemic index GI can be classified as
- GI value less than 55 is classified as "Low GI". Examples are all type of beans, small seeds (pumpkin, sesame) etc.
- GI value between 56 and 69 is classified as "Medium GI". Examples are sugar or sucrose, basmati rice, potato, grape juice, ice cream, banana etc.
- GI value over 70 is classified as "High GI". Examples are glucose, white bread, corn flakes, sweet potato, white potato etc.
The rise in sugar levels will be slow and steady with the low GI food. A rapid rise of sugar levels is associated with the high GI food items. Cabbage is having GI value of ten and glucose is having a value of 100. The study was published in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Endocrinology.
A Study On Autoantibody Status Change
The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) study is monitoring the children (with a risk of developing type 1 diabetes T1D) from young age across the US and Europe to find out the reasons for the development of type 1 diabetes (T1D). The research findings suggest that the development of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in children is due to the change in the status of the autoantibody and they attacks the healthy cells. An individual acquires type 1 diabetes (T1D) after the change in the status of the autoantibody. Researchers monitored following autoantibodies during the study
- Glutamic Acid Decarboxylase (GAD) antibody.
- Insulinoma antigen-2 antibodies.
- Insulin autoantibody.
The study was published in the Diabetes Care journal.
Risk of Heart Attack With Diabetes
Researchers from the University of Leeds have tracked more than 700,000 hospitalized individuals with a acute myocardial infarction (AMI), a medical name for heart attack and found that 121,000 individuals are with diabetes. There is a big difference in survival rates from a heart attack between "with diabetes" and "without diabetes" individuals. The results show that the risk of death from a heart attack in patients with diabetes are.
- 56% if the coronary artery was completely blocked
- 39% if the coronary artery was partially blocked
Researchers say the risk may be associated with diabetes or the other body conditions are associated with diabetes. Dr. Chris Gale was the lead researcher of the study. The study was published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
Benefits With A Specific Diet Plan
Researchers from the Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston, Massachusetts concluded that a personalized, specific nutrition plan works better compared with diabetes drugs in controlling blood sugar levels and diabetes. Researchers have developed a specific diet plan for an individual after analyzing A1C, body weight and blood lipid levels.
Trials Of Ertugliflozin Drug
Phase 3 trials, VERTIS Mono and VERTIS Factorial, has indicated that ertugliflozin, an investigational oral SGLT2 inhibitor agent, has decreased the average blood glucose levels (HbA1C) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Risks Of Statins Usage In Women
Statins are the medications used to reduce cholesterol levels and CVD. Researchers from the UMass Medical School have found that the risk of diabetes is 48% higher in postmenopausal women taking statins drugs. The study was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. The author of the study was Dr. Yunsheng Ma and co-author of the study was Judith K Ockene.
Discovery Of Low Fat Chocolate
The American scientists from the University of Philadelphia invented a new technology called electrorheology. This technology can reduce fat in chocolate bars by more than ten percent. The fat content in a chocolate bar is around 40 percent and this fat is associated with obesity. The invented technology is widely applicable and gives a wonderful taste. The study was published in the National Academy of Sciences journal.
Risks With Callus In The Feet
A diabetes individual may suffer from callus. A patient should use callus removers like a "Naressa Electronic Callus Remover" to prevent infections. Dr. David K McCullock says diabetes may lead an individual into complications in the feet such as.
- Fungal infection in the feet.
- Calluses, a thick layers of hardened skin in feet.
- Bunions, an unnatural bony hump.
- Foot ulcers.
Damages in the blood vessels to the feet will prevent signals or signals will be sent during wrong time. A poor blood flow prevents quick healing or they may not heal. Care should be taken to prevent cracks in the feet affected with the callus. Callus should be avoided to reduce the risk of infection. Individuals not feeling pain or sensation in the feet indicates they already suffering from serious foot problems.
Benefits With Breads Containing Fibre
Carbohydrates increase blood sugar levels. But Carbohydrates are essential to keep an individual healthy. It is important to eat healthy food containing quality carbohydrates as per the glycemic index (GI) to keep blood sugar under control. Bread is classified under a high glycemic index (GI). But it is good to eat bread containing fiber content as they are made with unrefined whole grains. Fiber content manages blood glucose levels and lowers cholesterol, constipation and hemorrhoids. The best bread for patients with diabetes are.
- Fibre enriched whole grain bread made with unrefined and whole grains.
- Multigrain sandwich bread.
- Low carbohydrate tortillas containing soy protein powders and whey.
- Gain free bread containing coconut flour, almond flour and flaxseed.
Risks With Alzheimer's Disease
A research team led by Prof Bettina Platt from the Aberdeen University has found a link between diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. The researchers say diabetes drugs slow the development of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is associated with weight and diet. Changes in the brain chemistry also cause diabetes. In most of the cases, Alzheimer's is not an inherited disease. The results show that an individual may likely to get dementia with diabetes and also a dementia patient may likely to be affected with diabetes. The study was published in the journal Diabetologia.
