The Risk Of Diabetes After Pregnancy
If a woman was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during the pregnancy, doctors advice to undergo a diagnostic test between 6 and 12 weeks after the birth for early detection of diabetes.
If the woman knows the risk of diabetes early, she can prevent the serious health complications by changing the lifestyle and diet. They should continue to take the diabetes diagnostic test for every three years.
The Benefit Of Vegan Diet
Vegans are those people who eat no meat or animal products.
A study published in the Vegan Society has found that daily consumption of the vegan diet can lower the risk of type 2 diabetes by over 78 percent compared with eating the meat diet on daily basis. This is because the vegan diet is a low-calorie diet.
The top risk factor for type 2 diabetes (T2D) is excess body fat. Vegans have lower body fat levels when compared with any other diet group.
Dr. Michael Greger says that the diet and lifestyle change can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D). He also says the following.
This study shows that those people who eat no meat or animal products (a Vegan diet) can have the following benefits.
The Risk With The Combination Treatment Of Diabetes Drug Onglyza With Other Diabetes Drugs
The type 2 diabetes drug onglyza increases the risk of heart failure of a patient. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning in 2014 about the use of type 2 diabetes drug onglyza.
A panel has appointed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recommended that the diabetes drug onglyza and other similar drugs should carry a warning sign that indicates the risk of heart failure of a patient.
A new study published in the British Medical Journal says that the combined treatment of diabetes drug onglyza and sulfonylureas can increase the risk of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia).
Early Detection Of Diabetes
The SWIFT study has found a new technique to predict the onset of type 2 diabetes (T2D) with an 83 percent accuracy in those women who had gestational diabetes during the pregnancy.
The researchers have identified a number of metabolites in the fasting blood sugar (glucose) levels, which can help in predicting the onset of type 2 diabetes (T2D). This new technique is called Targeted Metabolomics.
This technique can also be used to predict the onset of type 2 diabetes in the general population. If a person is at a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, healthcare professionals can motivate them to change their diet and lifestyle.
The authors of the study are Prof Michael Wheeler and Erica Gunderson.
The Risk From Low Birth Weight
A study shows that the babies born underweight (babies born with a birth weight of fewer than 5.5 lbs or 2.5 kgs) are at a higher risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D), kidney failure, blindness, amputations and long-term health complications in adulthood.
Low birth weight is an indicator of the delayed fetal growth and malnutrition. Low birth weight can be due to the following reasons.
The study was published in the Diabetologia.
A Device To Release The Drug In The Eye
A study at the Pohang University of Science and Technology, Korea (POSTECH) has invented a combination of smart contact lenses and eyeglasses to distribute the drug as and when required with a voice command.
The eyeglasses can communicate with the contact lenses to distribute the drug as and when required. Life of the contact lenses is up to one month.
The researchers are trying to make an automatic device. This product can be used for the treatment of eye diseases.
The Glucommander is an advanced software product to calculate the blood sugar (glucose) levels of the patient and to recommend the amount of insulin to be injected into the patient.
While calculating dosage, the settings of the software will give the importance to the target range of the blood sugar (glucose) levels of the patient. The software can help the patient in the following functions.
The Glytec has presented five abstracts of the product at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) scientific session at New Orleans between June 10 and 14, 2017.
About The Product "Daily Blood Sugar Maintenance"
Glucose Health, Inc. is a dietary supplements manufacturers for patients with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Now, the company has introduced a new innovative dietary supplement called "Daily Blood Sugar Maintenance" for patients with prediabetes and diabetes. This product is available at the Walmart pharmacy stores.
This product is containing nine compounds as per the "Glucose Health Formula". A medical prescription is not required to buy this product.
The EndoTool Glucose Management System
Better control of blood sugar (glucose) levels and hypoglycemia of a patient in a hospital can be achieved with the EndoTool IV Glucose Management System.
The EndoTool is an electronic glycemic management system is manufactured by Monarch Medical Technologies.
The IV insulin therapy is mandatory in hospitals when a critical operation is being performed. An improper administration of insulin may lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) or hyperglycemia (high blood sugar levels) as insulin is one of the most effective and dangerous drugs.
Using a mathematical model and feedback control, the EndoTool Glucose Management System can analyze the blood sugar levels of the patient and can administer insulin as per the requirement.
The Risk From The Genetic Factors
A study by Dr. Tiange Wang and Dr. Lu Qi shows the genetic factors can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes to those born babies with low birth weight. The study has got evidence of an increase in the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) linked with the genetic factors.
Effects Of Rotating Daytime And Nighttime Shift Work
A study shows that those people who are working on rotating shifts (nighttime and daytime) are at a higher risk of a number of health complications including diabetes due to the disruption of the biological clock.
In the study, the researchers have looked into data of more than 226,652 people. The study shows that a 42 percent increased risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in people working on day and night shifts.
The study was published in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
A Genetic Link Between Diabetes And Depression
A study on more than 160,000 twins registered at the Kings College London shows a genetic link between depression and diabetes. The study says that both diseases often occur at the same time. The study also shows that genetic flaws are the reason for the diagnosis of both diseases at the same time.
The authors of the study say there is a need to develop new drugs for the treatment of both diseases simultaneously.
