Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a large recall of blood glucose test strips manufactured for Abbott Diabetes Care and were distributed across the United States and Puerto Rico. There are six different brands involved in the recall, and an estimated 359 million test strips could be involved. The blood glucose monitoring units are not involved in the recall. There are 359 different lots of test strips making this a large scale recall.

The test strips could give an inaccurately low blood glucose measurement which could lead the person to increase blood glucose levels unnecessarily or the person could believe they are at the accurate blood glucose levels, when they could actually be running higher than normal. The test strips problem is that they didn't absorb enough blood for the test to complete correctly and the problem could have been made worse with strips which have been exposed to warmer temperatures or have been sitting around for a longer time period. The test strips involved in the recall were manufactured between January and September 2010 and were sold both online and at retail stores, and also at health care facilities.

[Best Syndication News] Researchers are investigating how leptin could possibly be used instead of or in conjunction with insulin in mouse studies at the UT Southwestern Medical Center. They have found that leptin was better at managing blood-sugar variability and lipogensis when comparing it to the standard insulin therapy. The study is available online and will appear in an upcoming issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Insulin therapy has been the gold standard for treating type 1 diabetes since 1922. It was discovered that Insulin suppressed glucagon which is a hormone that would raise blood sugar levels in healthy individuals. In Type 1 diabetes insulin producing cells are destroyed and that is why injected insulin is used to address the glucagon cells and deliver energy to the tissue.

Protein and planning your meals: The vast majority of people in the US eat more protein than the daily recommended amount. The primary sources are meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products like milk and cheese, although a lot of protein comes from the legume vegetables.

Meat products are not equal as sources of protein, with some meats also having a very high fat content. Keeping fat consumption to a minimum should be a primary consideration in any diabetic's diet. Low fat, meat source of protein include skinless chicken and turkey, fish, and fat-free cheeses. Vegetables can be great sources of protein, since they generally do not contain fat. They do however, contain carbohydrates. Limiting protein consumption to within 30% of your diet should be a target for anyone suffering from diabetes.

How To Control Diabetes: Three Common Mistakes That Make You Fail

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 17:53:22 +0000

(image)

BSN Stock Photo

How to control diabetes: there's the right way and a lot of wrong ways. Diabetes is like a cruel jack-in-the-box. You always have to keep it under control. If you don't, the jack-in-the-box will spring out and do bad things to you.

Keeping diabetes in the box isn't easy. Especially day in and day out, watching what you eat, testing your glucose levels, taking your meds, and all the other things you have to do to keep everything under control.

Most diabetics use an approach to diabetes control that either doesn't work very well or is very difficult to live with day in and day out. Maybe you are one of them.

Check it out: Does one of these describe you?

  • The "snapshot" approach.

You deal with the immediate situation and generalize the rest.  You test your blood sugar from time to time, especially if you “feel funny”.  If the reading is too high, you might take a shot of insulin (if you use insulin) or you might drink several glasses of water or try something else to bring it down.  If the reading is too low, maybe you eat a piece of candy or even “pig out” until you feel better.

Insulin injected with a mismatch between Insulin syringe and Insulin concentration in vial may have disastrous results and is one of the avoidable cause of hospitalization.

Insulin vials are of different concentrations and commonly 40 U and 100 U insulin vials are available. 40 U insulin vial has 40 units of insulin in 1 ml while 100 U insulin vial has 100 units of insulin in 1 ml. To inject Insulin, 2 types of syringes are available, 40 U and 100 U. Both are 1 ml syringe with the difference that 40 U syringe will have number mark up to 40 while 100 U syringe will have up to 100. Thus half mark in 40 U syringes will be at 20 U and will carry half ml of Insulin which contains 20 units of insulin, while half level in 100 U syringes will be at 50 units, and this contains half ml of insulin which now contains 50 unit of Insulin.
