Water fluoridation prevents dental cavities but the study results show long-term health problems. A study by Kyle Fluegge across 22 U.S. states shows that fluoridation with sodium fluoride is a factor in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the United States. One milligram increase in fluoride levels in water may increase 0.17% increase in type 2 diabetes (T2D). Both sodium fluoride and sodium fluorosilicate, additives of fluoride were linked to type 2 diabetes (T2D). But fluorosilicic acid showing decreasing incidents of type 2 diabetes (T2D). The study findings were published in the Journal of Water and Health.
A Spanish study led by Aleix Sala-Vila, Barcelona Spain, who tracked seafood consumption habits of individuals for nearly five years suggested that risk of eye and vision complications from diabetic retinopathy in type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients can be reduced by 48% with the consumption of 500 mg of omega-3 fatty acid foods per day in their diets or two servings of fatty fish per week. Some foods high with omega 3 fatty acids are
Diabetic retinopathy complication may lead an individual to vision problems and even blindness. The study findings were published in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology.
A team of researchers led by Libin Liu from the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) identified PTRF (Cavin-1) protein in model organisms and humans responsible for the development of type ii diabetes (T2D). The absence of PTRF (Cavin-1) protein results in lipodystrophy, a condition when there is a complete loss of fat cells. Due to the absence of fat cells, fat targets other tissues in the body and make them insulin resistant and eventually to the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Kidney continuously filters and removes impurities from the blood and sent out of the body through urine. But this may not happen in chronic kidney disease patients. Kidney won't function properly and can't able to remove toxins from the blood. The patient needs to undergo dialysis to remove toxins from the blood or needs to undergo kidney transplantation. Impurities remain in the blood as waste and called as urea. A study by researchers from the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center led by Dr. Vincent Poitout DVM, PhD shows that chronic kidney disease shares a link with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and are at higher risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Research findings show that the urea present in the blood of chronic kidney disease patients is responsible for damaged insulin secretion. The study findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
Danish company Jabra, a subsidiary of GN Netcom developed a pair of Jabra fitness-tracking headphones to help individuals in creating, managing, tracking and evaluating workouts. The product will monitor patient's fitness and nutrition information in real-time to control diseases such as obesity, cancer and diabetes. The product helps patient and healthcare professionals by displaying real-time data. Patients need to wear the pair of Jabra Sport Pulse wireless earbuds during their exercise routine along with individual's fitness goals specific to a patient. An optomechanical sensor in the left earbud sense VO2 max levels (max rate of oxygen consumption), heart pulse reading, calories burnt and pace during workouts and generate readings. The generated up to date readings will be sent via Bluetooth to a patient's/medical team's Android or iOS phone. Workout history, distance run and other statistics can be saved with the product.
