Risks With Diet Drinks
A study by the researchers from the Karolinska Institute, Sweden shows diet drinks are harmful to health. Many individuals consume diet drinks over their favorite sugary drinks to boost health and to avoid weight gain but diet drinks are bad for health. Researchers say hungriness increases with diet drinks and prompt to eat unhealthy snacks. Eating unhealthy snacks increases weight and leads to obesity. Researchers studied 2,874 adults over one year and came to following conclusions
- A couple of sugary drinks a day increases the risk to type 2 diabetes (T2D) by 2.4 times
- Two glasses of diet drinks a day double the risk to the development of diabetes
- Diet drinks contain artificial sweeteners. Gut bacteria triggers diabetes with the interference of artificial sweeteners as they cause chemical reactions in the fat tissue
- Artificial sweeteners (in diet drinks) may alter the good and bad bacteria ratio in the gut leading to glucose intolerance
Lead researcher of the study is Josefin Lfvenborg.
Risks With Childhood Type 1 Diabetes
A study by researchers on 26,000 individuals and children with type 1 diabetes (T1D) between 2010 and 2016 shows individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) will be at risk with the development of other autoimmune disorders such as thyroid and gastrointestinal diseases as 27 percent of type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients have at least one other autoimmune disorder. Researchers found that autoimmune diseases start early in the childhood. Nearly 20 percent of them already have another disease other than type 1 diabetes (T1D). Another important finding is that the individual affected with the autoimmune disease during the childhood will keep accumulating additional autoimmune diseases. Thyroid disease is the common autoimmune disease affecting nearly 24 percent of the individuals during later years. Other autoimmune diseases affecting include rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, Graves disease and vitiligo. Researchers say patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) should undergo routine checks for other autoimmune diseases. Lead author of the study is Dr. Jing Hughes, Washington University School of Medicine.
Vitiligo : A autoimmune disease caused due to the death of pigment-producing cells.
Celiac disease : A autoimmune disease caused due to the immune reaction to eating gluten protein found in barley, wheat and rye. The immune reaction damages small intestine lining and the risk of other medical complications.
Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) Technology To Track Individual Exercise From Mio Global
Studies proved that regular physical activity can reduce the number of lifestyle diseases including diabetes but an individual may not know how much physical activity is required to prevent them. Mio Global in collaboration with Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG) introduced an innovative Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) technology based on HUNT technology this year. PAI technology was developed after monitoring more than 60,000 individuals over a 20-year period. PAI technology helps an individual in finding the amount of physical activity required (based on heartbeat rate) to reduce the risk of death from lifestyle diseases. PAI technology simplifies tracking individual exercise. Keeping score of over 100 with Mio wearable device and PAI app will reduce the risk of death from lifestyle diseases. Lead author of the study is Dr. Javaid Nauman from Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG).
Mio Global : Mio Global is a Taiwan based company established in 2002. They are in the business of developing and marketing GPS navigation mobile systems services such as car and handheld navigation and GPS phones.
