A Study On The Prevention Of Heart Failure With Liraglutide Drug
Heart failure is a chronic condition where the heart will fail in pumping enough blood required by the organs of the body. An earlier study shows that one-third of heart failure patients are suffering from diabetes.
The researchers have found that liraglutide drug can lower the blood sugar (glucose) levels and helps in weight loss.
But the drug could not improve the blood pumping action of the heart in patients suffering from advanced heart failure.
Interestingly, liraglutide drug also failed in patients without diabetes.
The lead author of the study was Dr. Kenneth B Margulies, the Director, the Heart Failure and Transplantation and Dr. Thomas Cappola, the Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.
The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
The Benefits Of Alcohol-Free Fermented Blueberry-Blackberry Wine
A study at the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, the University of Illinois shows that the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) can be lowered with the consumption of alcohol-free fermented blueberry-blackberry wine (beverage).
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has declared that the blueberries as "diabetes super foods".
Elvira de Mejia, a food chemist at the University of Illinois have developed a blueberry-blackberry wine (beverage). The beverage contains 70 percent of fermented blackberries and 30 percent of fermented blueberries. The sugar has been removed and the alcohol was replaced with water.
The test results on mouse models show a reduction in the risk of obesity and high blood sugar (glucose) levels even on a high-fat diet.
Elvira de Mejia says that the berry wine is not intended to replace medications for patients with type 2 diabetics (T2D). But the product can lower the medication needed under the supervision and guidance of doctors.
The Benefits With The Consumption Of Coffee
Soft drinks and processed fruit juices are toxic to the body. These beverages can increase the risk of metabolic syndrome. Fresh fruits or drinks without sugar or additives are good for health.
A clinical study at the Harvard School of Public Health on the effects of consumption of coffee and the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) has found that consuming up to 400 milligrams of caffeine (without adding sugar and creamer) is beneficial for the health of adults. A cup of coffee can contain up to 140 milligrams of caffeine.
The study shows the following.
The Mayo Clinic says that coffee (or caffeine ) is a chemical and an individual should avoid the consumption of more than five cups of coffee per day. The following are the side effects of some people with the consumption of coffee.
The following are benefits with the consumption of coffee.
The Risk From Fine Dust
A study by Prof. Lee Young-gu at the Soonchunhyang University Hospital, South Korea, shows that an individual who is exposed to fine dust will be at a higher risk of diabetic foot syndrome apart from respiratory diseases.
A study was done on wound mice models, with and without diabetes, by exposing them with the fine dust.
The study has found that the pace of wound recovery is slow in the diabetic mouse models.
The researchers say that the exposure to fine dust can delay the recovery process of the damaged tissue.
The study was concluded on Aug 3, 2016, and the study is going to be published in the International Wound Journal.
