Aspirin does not prevent heart attacks in patients with diabetes

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Taking regular aspirin and antioxidant supplements does not prevent heart attacks even in high risk groups with diabetes and asymptomatic arterial disease, and aspirin should only be given to patients with established heart disease, stroke or limb arterial disease, as per a research studypublished recently on

Continuous glucose monitoring in diabetic pregnant women

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Continuous glucose monitoring as part of antenatal care for women with diabetes improves maternal blood glucose control and lowers birth weight and risk of macrosomia* (excessive birth weight in babies), as per a research studypublished on today. During pregnancy it is important that women with diabetes keep their blood glucose under control. If not, there may be an increase in the amount of glucose reaching the baby, which makes the baby grow faster than normal, and may cause difficulties at birth as well as an increased longer term risk of insulin resistance, obesity and type 2 diabetes........

Young Type-2 Diabetic Men Suffer Low Testosterone Levels

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Young men with type 2 diabetes have significantly low levels of testosterone, endocrinologists at the University at Buffalo have found -- a condition that could have a critical effect on their quality of life and on their ability to father children. This study follows research published earlier by these researchers reporting that one-third of middle-aged men with type 2 diabetes have low testosterone levels, requiring therapy for erectile dysfunction........

A step towards better diabetes treatment

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) In today's issue of the prestigious journal Cell Metabolism Uppsala researchers are presenting new findings that shed light on the processes that determine the release of the blood sugar-lowering hormone insulin. The discovery is based on the development of image analysis methods that make possible the detailed study of events immediately inside the plasma membrane of the insulin-secreting cells........

Vitamin D and type 1 diabetes

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Sun exposure and vitamin D levels may play a strong role in risk of type 1 diabetes in children, as per new findings by scientists at the Moores Cancer Center at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine. This association comes on the heels of similar research findings by this same group regarding vitamin D levels and several major cancers........

How slow growth as a fetus can cause diabetes as an adult

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), which results in a baby having a low weight at birth, has been associated with the development of type 2 diabetes in adulthood. It has been suggested that this is because the expression of key genes is altered during fetal development and that this affects disease susceptibility during the later part of life. Evidence to support this hypothesis and indicating that the changes in gene expression might be permanent has now been provided by Rebecca Simmons and his colleagues, at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, using a rat model of IUGR........

Salk study links diabetes and Alzheimer's disease

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Diabetic individuals have a significantly higher risk of developing Alzheimers disease but the molecular correlation between the two remains unexplained. Now, scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies identified the probable molecular basis for the diabetes Alzheimers interaction. As per a research findings reported in the current online issue of Neurobiology of Aging, researchers led by David R. Schubert, Ph.D., professor in the Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory, report that the blood vessels in the brain of young diabetic mice are damaged by the interaction of elevated blood glucose levels characteristic of diabetes and low levels of beta amyloid, a peptide that clumps to form the senile plaques that riddle the brains of Alzheimers patients........

Cholesterol, blood pressure control in diabetics

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Aggressively lowering cholesterol and blood pressure levels below current targets in adults with type 2 diabetes may help to prevent and possibly reverse hardening of the arteries, as per new research supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health. Hardening of the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis, is the number one cause of heart disease and can lead to heart attack, stroke, and death........

Bacteria in the digestive system and obesity

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Obesity is more than a cosmetic concern because it increases a persons risk for developing high blood pressure, diabetes and a number of other serious health problems. Its well understood that consuming more calories than you expend through exercise and daily activities causes weight gain. But with about one in every three American adults now considered obese, scientists are attempting to identify additional factors that affect a persons tendency to gain and retain excess weight. In the recent issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, scientists from Mayo Clinic Arizona and Arizona State University examine the role that bacteria in the human gastrointestinal tract play in regulating weight and the development of obesity........

Actos preventes progression of atherosclerotic plaque

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) New data from a clinical trial using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) technology observed that in patients living with type 2 diabetes, ACTOSandreg; (pioglitazone HCl) reduced the atherosclerotic burden in the coronary arteries in comparison to glimepiride, and prevented progression in comparison to baseline. These data stem from the PERISCOPE (Pioglitazone Effect on Regression of Intravascular Sonographic Coronary Obstruction Prospective Evaluation) trial........

Antidepressants and type 2 diabetes

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) While analyzing data from Saskatchewan health databases, Lauren Brown, researcher with the U of As School of Public Health, found people with a history of depression had a 30 per cent increased risk of type 2 Diabetes. Brown then studied the medical history of 2,400 people who were diagnosed with depression and were taking antidepressants to determine whether there was a clear connection between that disease and type 2 Diabetes........

Grape skin compound fights the complications of diabetes

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Research carried out by researchers at the Peninsula Medical School in the South West of England has observed that resveratrol, a compound present naturally in grape skin, can protect against the cellular damage to blood vessels caused by high production of glucose in diabetes, as per a paper reported in the science journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism this week........

Cutting caffeine may help control diabetes

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) Daily consumption of caffeine in coffee, tea or soft drinks increases blood sugar levels for people with type 2 diabetes and may undermine efforts to control their disease, say researchers at Duke University Medical Center. Scientists used new technology that measured participants glucose (sugar) levels on a constant basis throughout the day. Dr. James Lane, a psychology expert at Duke and the lead author of the study, says it represents the first time scientists have been able to track the impact of caffeine consumption as patients go about their normal, everyday lives........

Diabetics risk serious foot problems

Fri, 17 Oct 2008 04:49:51 GMT

(image) More than six out of ten people with diabetes are walking around in the wrong-sized shoes, exposing themselves to serious foot problems that could lead to amputation, as per research in the recent issue of IJCP, the International Journal of Clinical Practice. Published to coincide with World Diabetes Day (14 November) the study, by the University of Dundee, has been welcomed by an expert in podiatry. She says that ulceration can have serious implications for patients and health services, including impaired quality of life, increased amputation risk and even elevated death rates........
