ProEmpower Releases Call for Tenders to Develop Innovative ICT for Diabetes Mellitus Self-Management

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 09:00:00 +0100

The ProEmpower procurers are looking for a diabetes management solution that will tackle the unmet needs in the current treatment of diabetes such as the fragmentation in today’s healthcare systems, the overreliance on and the ineffectiveness of pharmacotherapy, the late detection of the disease and the frequency of severe complications. This will be achieved by providing personalised and multi-disciplinary care to diabetes patients and empowering them to become responsible actors in the care process. (Source: eHealth News EU)

Jamaican weed stabilizes blood sugar

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 16:25:13 +0100

It was pouring rain. I could barely see as I drove up the winding mountains. But I would not be deterred from my mission. I was on my way to finally meet Jamaica’s last living Maroon healer, Ivey Harris. I finally arrived at her secluded mountain home and she met me with open arms… and an umbrella. After the rain let up, she showed me around her home. Her yard is like an all-natural pharmacy. And she’s a walking herbal encyclopedia. One of my favorites was a Jamaican vine with weird-looking warty green fruit. Most people in the U.S. would call it a weed. Today, I grow it in my backyard here in South Florida. I grow cerasee in my backyard. I use the leaves to make a detox tea for my patients. The plant I’m talking about is called cerasee (Momordica charantia). And for more th...

Prediabetes drug increases risk of diabetes!

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 03:38:36 +0100

Raise your hand if your doctor has ordered a blood test to check your glucose. Most do, whether or not you have symptoms of diabetes. If your fasting blood sugar is 125 mgm/dL or above you are considered a diabetic. But if your number comes in between 108 and 125 they’ll say you have “prediabetes.”  That’s a condition where your cells have a resistance to the hormone insulin. Your body uses insulin to put glucose into your cells where it can provide energy. But with insulin resistance, your cells are slow to take up glucose. It builds up in your blood.  Over a lifetime, 70-75% of people diagnosed with prediabetes will progress to diabetes. If your doctor tells you that you’re prediabetic, he or she will almost certainly put you on Big Pharma’s metfo...



GID touts study showing EndoBarrier as good as gastric plication

Black Americans Are Living Longer But Health Disparities Persist, CDC Says

Wed, 03 May 2017 16:41:27 +0100

African-Americans are generally living longer than in 2000, but health disparities mean they are still more likely to die at a younger age on average than whites, a federal study showed on Tuesday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study of data from 1999 to 2015 shows that younger black people in their 20s, 30s and 40s are living with, or dying from, diseases that are typically seen in older people. “The disparity in deaths between the white and black populations is closing. Even so, critical disparities remain,” Leandris Liburd, associate director of CDC’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity, said in a conference call. The death rate, which is usually calculated as deaths per 1,000 people per year, fell 25 percent for African-Americans during ...

What Are the Clinical Symptoms Associated with Friedreich Ataxia?

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 00:48:31 +0100

Discussion Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) was first extensively described in a series of papers from 1863-1877 by Nikolaus Friedreich at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. In 1996 the genetic mutation was described. It is an autosomal recessively inherited, homologous expansion of the GAA repeat in intron 1 of the frataxin gene on chromosome 9q13. It causes a transcription error leading to a decrease in frataxin which is a mitochondrial protein involved in iron metabolism and other cell functions. Frataxin is seen mainly in the central and peripheral nervous systems, heart, pancreas and skeleton. Frataxin is produced but in decreased amounts, and lack of frataxin causes in-utero lethality of the embryo. FRDA is the most common cause of autosomal recessive ataxia. Point estimates are up to p...

Diabetes Mellitus in Pregnancy

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 23:00:00 +0100

Gestational and pregestational diabetes make up the most common maternal metabolic disorder of pregnancy. Suboptimal control of blood glucose has the potential for serious maternal and neonatal adverse effects. Neonates of diabetic mothers are at risk for congenital malformations, perinatal mortality, preeclampsia, preterm birth, increased birthweight, neonatal hypoglycemia and respiratory distress. The nature and severity of risks depend on the timing and duration of hyperglycemia. Through glycemic control and proper prenatal care, many of these risks can be mitigated. Pediatric providers must be sensitive to the association between a newborn’s risk and the mother’s level of glycemic control, often linked to her adherence to prenatal care.

[Report] β-cell–mimetic designer cells provide closed-loop glycemic control

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 23:00:00 +0100

Chronically deregulated blood-glucose concentrations in diabetes mellitus result from a loss of pancreatic insulin-producing β cells (type 1 diabetes, T1D) or from impaired insulin sensitivity of body cells and glucose-stimulated insulin release (type 2 diabetes, T2D). Here, we show that therapeutically applicable β-cell–mimetic designer cells can be established by minimal engineering of human cells. We achieved glucose responsiveness by a synthetic circuit that couples glycolysis-mediated calcium entry to an excitation-transcription system controlling therapeutic transgene expression. Implanted circuit-carrying cells corrected insulin deficiency and self-sufficiently abolished persistent hyperglycemia in T1D mice. Similarly, glucose-inducible glucagon-like peptide 1 transcription impr...

Amid the frustration and despair associated with rising premiums, healthcare costs and obesity prevalence, is a trend that is slowly infiltrating the healthcare industry. Although some of the most notable trends (in fitness and nutrition) tend to come and go as quickly as a fastball (World Series, anyone?), this particular trend has an immense amount of staying power based on current scientific research. This immense power has little to do with pharmacological interventions and prescription refills and much more to do with our feet, forks, fingers and minds.

Celiac disease: 5 things parents need to know

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:37:54 +0100

Dr. Dascha Weir, associate director, Boston Children’s Celiac Disease Program It may be difficult for parents to hear that their child has a chronic illness. When the diagnosis is celiac disease (CD), an autoimmune disorder caused by an intolerance to gluten, there is good news. CD is treatable by changes in diet. How it works: When food enters the stomach, it’s broken down into tiny digestible particles, which then travel through the small intestine. The small intestine is lined with villi — tiny finger-like projections that absorb nutrients from the food passing through. In celiac disease, gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and oats, damages the intestine and causes the villi to break down, leaving a flattened lining that can no longer absorb nutrients as ef...

Weight Loss Pills And Products Don't Work And Aren't Safe

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 00:44:35 +0100

Our ancestors lived in a feast or famine world. When you don't know where your next meal is coming from, or when it will arrive, the smart play is to pig out every time food is available. Our genes are programmed to extract as much energy as possible from what we eat and to store any extra energy in fat reservoirs, available in reserve for future famines. These deeply ingrained genetic tendencies worked great in the austere world of our ancestors, but are a disaster in our current world of refrigerators, ubiquitous fast food joints and milk shakes. Only one third of Americans are now able to maintain a normal weight; one third are overweight; and one third are obese. Excess weight is a risk factor for most illnesses, and for many people is also a consuming cosmetic concern. Pharma knows ...

In Klinefelter Syndrome Patients, What are the Common Behavioral Problems?

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 00:57:49 +0100

Discussion Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is a common genetic abnormaly with a prevalence of 1 in ~650 male births. It was first described in 1942 by Dr. Harry Klinefelter. It is associated with at least one extra X chromosome with the most common karyotype (~80% of patients) being 47 XXY. Other karyotypes are seen along with mosaicism. It is believed that although it is very prevalent, only about 25-33% of people with KS are identified. About 10% are identified before puberty with the rest usually identified because of hypogonadism and tall stature especially in teenage years or due to infertility in adulthood. KS is diagnosed by karyotype. The phenotype varies but most commonly is associated with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, infertility, gynecomastia and tall stature. The tall stature is r...

The contrast between science and clinical practice can be so stark that it is shocking. I just returned from Washington, D.C. and the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine sponsored by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and the Georgetown University School of Medicine. The first patient I saw in my preventive cardiology clinic after returning from the conference described his 25 year struggle with heart disease including 2 separate bypass operations, numerous stents, and activity severely limited by angina chest pain.

What To Eat: Science vs. Swagger

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 18:37:36 +0100

Hardly a day, or at most a week, goes by without a new headline advising one eating pattern or another. In a world where heart disease, obesity, diabetes mellitus and other chronic diseases are serious drains on health, happiness and national budgets, reliable information on sound nutritional patterns is crucial to turn the tide on these food borne illnesses. The contrast between the good and the bad of "nutrition experts" was highlighted this week providing a lesson in the care it takes to obtain reliable health information in a digital world where anyone can be an expert. The "good" side of nutrition advice comes from a new scientific report derived from data on 131,342 participants in the Nurses' Health Study and the Physicians Health Study (85,013 women and 46,329 men) who were follow...

Discovery of biomarkers for the prognosis of chronic kidney disease

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:05:52 +0100

Currently, there is no effective method to predict the prognosis of chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Researchers have now found that measuring D-amino acids, which present only trace in human, provides prognostic information of CKD. The present discovery would facilitate CKD treatment and thus improve the prognosis of CKD, and may also lead to the further discovery of novel therapy. The potential application is not limited to kidney diseases: the disease context ranges to life style-related diseases such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension, as well as lethal diseases including cardiovascular diseases, say the investigators.

Diabetes reversal after bypass surgery linked to changes in gut microorganisms

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 04:00:00 +0100

(Elsevier Health Sciences) Studies have shown that bariatric surgery can lead to remission of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in rodents and humans, but this beneficial effect cannot be explained solely by weight loss. In a new study published in The American Journal of Pathology, researchers investigating gastric bypass in a mouse model of T2DM confirmed that bypass surgery improves glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. Interestingly, the improved metabolism occurred in conjunction with changes in gut microorganisms, suggesting a potential role for gut microbiota in diabetes remission.

Chelation Remains A Hopeful Heart Therapy

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 21:45:23 +0100

Maybe you know someone who has suffered a heart attack. You're concerned about their well-being, particularly if they're diabetic or suffered a large heart attack. You want to make sure that absolutely everything that can help this loved one stay healthy and alive is discussed with their doctors. Odds are very high, however, that there's one promising therapy the doctor won't tell them about: chelation therapy. Chelation therapy was designed decades ago to trap and remove serious environmental toxins like arsenic. While using it, some practitioners noted improvements in symptoms of heart disease, and chelation began to be used in some clinics for heart patients.
