If a woman was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during pregnancy, she gets a recommendation for the testing of blood sugar levels within 6 to 12 weeks after birth to detect the diabetes condition early. Chances of averting serious complications by changing lifestyle if the women know the problem early. They should continue testing blood sugar levels for every three years.
Vegans are those who eat no meat or animal products and a study published by The Vegan Society found that Vegans reduced their risk for type ii diabetes (T2D) by over 78% compared with those who eat meat on a daily basis as Vegans consume low-calorie meals. The top risk factor for type 2 diabetes (T2D) is excess body fat and Vegans have lower levels body fat on average compared with another dietary group. Dr. Michael Greger says diet and lifestyle changes prevent the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D).
The findings indicate that those who eat no meat or animal products (Vegan diet) enjoy
Treatment with type 2 diabetes (T2D) drug onglyza increases the risk of heart failure. FDA warned about the usage of onglyza drug during 2014 and a panel appointed by FDA recommended that onglyza and other similar drugs should carry warnings indicating risk of heart failure. A new study published in the British Medical Journal says combined treatment with onglyza and sulfonylureas increases the risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
SWIFT study done by international researchers found a new technique to predict the onset of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in women (with gestational diabetes) after delivery in a simple and with 83% accuracy. Researchers identified a number of metabolites in the fasting blood glucose that indicate risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D) and the new technique is called as Targeted Metabolomics. With this finding, health care professionals can identify diabetes risk in women early and motivate them to change their diet and lifestyle. The new technique, Targeted Metabolomics can be used to predict risk for diabetes in general population also. Prof Michael Wheeler and Sr Research Scientist Erica Gunderson are members of the study.
Scientists found babies born underweight, less than 5.5lb (2.5kg) are at risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D), kidney failure, blindness, amputations and long-term health problems during adulthood. Low birth weight is an indicator of delayed fetal growth and malnutrition. Low birth weight can be due to
The study findings were published in Diabetologia.
Researchers at Pohang University of Science and Technology in Korea (POSTECH) invented smart contact lenses and eyeglass combination to disperses drugs as and when required through voice command via chip. The eyeglasses communicate with contact lenses to disperses drugs as and when required. Life of the contact lenses is up to one month. Researchers hoping to make the mechanism automatic. The product can be used to treat other eye-related diseases.
Glucommander is an advanced software product that calculates current and cumulative blood glucose levels and recommends amount of insulin to inject into the patient. While calculating dosage, software settings give due importance to patients predetermined blood glucose levels target range. The software can
Glytec along with collaborators presented five abstracts to ADA scientific session in New Orleans between June 10-14.
Glucose Health, Inc. manufactures dietary supplements to prediabetes and type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. The company introduced new innovative dietary supplements product "Glucose Health Daily Blood Sugar Maintenance" for diabetic patients and it is available at Walmart pharmacies stores. The product contains 9 compounds as per "Glucose Health Formula". A prescription is not required to buy this product.
Better control over blood glucose levels and hypoglycemia in hospitals can be achieved with computerized EndoTool IV insulin administration. EndoTool is an electronic glycemic management system made by Monarch Medical Technologies. IV insulin therapy is mandatory in hospitals wherever critical operations were performed. Improper administration of insulin may lead to hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia as insulin is one of the most effective and dangerous drugs in the hospital. Using mathematical models and feedback controls, EndoTool analyses individual patients blood glucose reading and administer insulin as per requirement.
A study by Dr. Tiange Wang and Dr. Lu Qi shows babies are at increased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) with genetically lowered birth weight babies. Researchers got clear evidence of the increase in the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) due to the low birth weight of the baby was due to genetic factors.
A study indicates that individuals working on rotating shifts (nighttime and daytime) are most likely to get a number of health problems including diabetes because of the disruption of a person's biological clock. Researchers looked into data of more than 226,652 people and concluded that 42 percent increased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in people working on day and night shifts. The research findings were published in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
Researchers from Kings College London discovered a genetic link between depression and diabetes after studying 160,000 twins. They concluded that both the diseases often occur at the same time. They say genetic flaws are the reason for the development of both diseases at the same time. This new finding will lead to the development of new medications to treat both the diseases at the same time. They found that risk for diabetes in individuals suffering from depression is 60 percent and risk of depression in individuals suffering from diabetes is 15 percent.
