Insulin Related Cancer Risk Offset Benefits With Statins Usage
A study by researchers shows statins usage offsets insulin related cancer risks in type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. Researchers analyzed multiple associations between ii diabetes therapies, statin use and cancers from the data of 1,847,051 Austrian individuals from 2006 to 2007. Researchers found that risks to cancers such as liver, colon, lung and brain in men and pancreas in men and women were increased up to nine times in patients treated with insulin. But researchers noted reduction to prostate cancer. Researchers found that risks were reduced in patients taking statins. More reduction to risk was found in those patients not undergoing antihyperglycemic therapies. Researchers say their study findings show an association between hyperglycemia and cancer and suggested drugs to treat diabetes should be insulin sparing. Dr. Alexandra Kautzky-Willer MD, Medical University of Vienna and the study findings were published in the Journal of Internal Medicine.
Cancer : Cancer (also known as malignancy) is a disease in which there will be abnormal growth of cells. They do not die and destroy body tissue. Most common cancers are
- Breast cancer : A type of cancer affecting breasts of women
- Prostate cancer : A type of cancer affecting prostate of men
- Basal cell cancer : A type of skin cancer beginning from basal cells
- Lymphoma : A type of cancer affecting lymphoma system
- Skin cancer : A type of cancer affecting the skin
- Colon cancer : A type of cancer affecting colon or rectum
- Lung cancer : A type of cancer affecting lungs
- Leukemia : A type of cancer affecting blood-forming cells
- Melanoma : A type of skin cancer
Risk factors for cancer are
- Carcinogens substances
- Sedentary Behaviour
Cancer treatment include
- Radiation treatment
Topical gel Heals Wounds And Ulcers Fast
Wounds heal slowly especially in patients with diabetes as bacteria prevent healing process and sometimes, they never heal. Millions of patients with diabetes are suffering from wounds and sometimes require amputations. A study by Burgess and his team on mouse model (with diabetes) shows the speed of wound healing can be increased with the application of a topical gel containing heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60) gene. Hsp60 gene and its protein products in the body were found in all organism and this gene plays a surprising role in vertebrates in body immunity response to wound healing process. This finding is important for the treatment of wound and scares healing and regeneration of tissues. Senior author of the study is Dr. Shawn M Burgess, PhD and the study findings were published in the npj Regenerative Medicine.
Ulcer : A ulcer is one type of wound boring through the skin lining. Some chronic wounds get deeper and form as skin ulcers. The condition of ulcers worsened due to poor circulation of blood and bacterial, viral or fungal infections. Now wounds are called an acute or surgical wound.
Wound : An injury to skin layers and tissues is called as a wound.
Small Risk To Cardiovascular Diseases and Diabetes With Butter Consumption
According to meta-analysis done by researchers from the University of Cambridge shows butter is associated with small, weak or neutral risk to mortality, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Researchers say the study do not support either increasing or decreasing butter consumption but require the need for an additional investigation on the effects of butter and dairy fat on the health of the individuals. Existing ADA guidelines recommend margarine instead of butter. Lead author of the study is Laura Pimpin, the University of Cambridge and the study findings were published in the Plos One.
