A study done by researchers shows type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients are at risk of cognitive decline and diabetes treatment may decrease cognitive decline in older patients. 7,740 individuals from Chicago Health and Aging Project aged 65 years were tracked by researchers and found that Black and European groups with type ii diabetes (T2D) have faster rates of cognitive decline compared with individuals without diabetes. Researchers investigated the nature of cognitive decline during the early stage of the disease. They found small cognitive decrease already present during early stages of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and during prediabetes stage in patients. As diabetic individual ages, there will be an increase in cognitive decline and risk of dementia. Risk factors for the early cognitive decline for type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients are
Cognitive decline in an individual results in
Researchers unable to find out how cognitive decrements progress over time. Researchers say treating type 2 diabetes (T2D) during early stages can delay development of cognitive decline. Study findings were published in Diabetes Care.
Macrovascular disease : A disease to large blood vessels such as coronary arteries, arteries in the brain, arteries in the limbs and the aorta of the body. This may happen for a long time diabetic individual. Risk factors for macrovascular disease are
Complications with the macrovascular disease are
Researchers from Kumamoto University, Japan have developed a wearable device to treat type ii diabetes (T2D) patients even if an individual is obese. The device can decrease blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity and decrease visceral fat. Researchers found improvements in fatty liver markers, chronic inflammation, renal function and lipid profile. Human body activates heat shock response (HSR) in response to stress levels. But HSR functionality was reduced in type 2 diabetes patients (T2D). HSP72 is a main protein of HSR. Researchers found that by restoring HSP72 functionality, abnormalities related to high sugar levels can be normalized. Researchers restored HSP72 functionality by mild electrical stimulation (MES) with heat shock (HS). Researchers developed a belt-type medical device, simple to use and can be attached to the abdomen with the new technology. The benefits are similar to physical exercise and it is very useful to overweight, disable or elderly individuals. Lead researcher of the team is Tatsuya Kondo and the study findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Acanthosis nigricans is a skin disorder or disease that makes skin thick and velvety. Skin changes to brown to black color patches or markings in the areas such as the back of the neck, body folds, forehead, navel, creases, groin, armpits and under the breasts. This is not a harmful disease and effects people with conditions such as
Doctors can diagnose the disease through physical examination and patient family medical history. Treatment options include
