Scientists at Qingdao University and other research facilities in China have found a link between both conditions. In July of 2017, the Internal Medicine Journal reported on a study of two thousand six hundred and forty-six participants who had been previously diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. They were all at least 40 years of age. Those who had nonalcoholic fatty liver disease were at a high risk for peripheral vascular conditions. A total of 12.8 percent of the participants with the liver condition also had vascular conditions, compared with 7.8 percent of the participants without liver disease.

Type 2 Diabetes - The Key To Success Is Internal Motivation

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 12:59:01 -0500

To be motivated means you have the desire to bring about something you desire but it's been said you must be careful with motivation.

Type 2 Diabetes - Be A Tortoise, Not A Hare, to Help Reduce Your Diabetes Risk

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 13:59:01 -0500

Similar to sloths, no matter how hard they try there is a limit to how fast they can move. Now if we suggest you should move like a tortoise and not a hare when it comes to making changes to your lifestyle, you might get the impression we are advocating sluggishness over quickness. That is not the case. The difference comes down to efficiency.



Type 2 Diabetes - Slowing the Progression of Diabetic Kidney Disease

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

One severe and all-too-common complication of Type 2 diabetes is kidney disease and their subsequent failure. Diabetic kidney disease is diagnosed by a test that looks for albumin, or the presence of protein in the urine. Albumin is a molecule usually found in the blood. When the kidneys filter blood, they keep the albumin in the bloodstream where it belongs. When the kidneys begin spilling albumin into the urine, a condition called albuminuria results. If it is allowed to go on or become worse, the kidneys can eventually shut down altogether. When that happens, the diabetic needs dialysis (artificial kidney), or a kidney transplant. When the diabetic receives a diagnosis of albuminuria, they are also in danger of having or developing heart and blood vessel disease.

Workers at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil studied five hundred and forty-four Type 2 diabetics who were at high risk for developing diabetic retinopathy, a severe eye disease. Over the course of six years, the participants had an annual eye examination. Their blood pressure reading was taken as they went about their normal routines. Their aorta (artery from the heart to the rest of the body), was examined for stiffness. By the end of the study, one hundred and fifty-six of the participants either developed diabetic retinopathy or saw the condition grow worse.

Type 2 Diabetes - The Location of Visceral Fat Helps to Predict Heart and Blood Vessel Disease

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 17:59:01 -0500

In July of 2017, the Journal of Diabetes Investigation reported on some interesting and potentially useful research from the Tokyo Medical and Dental University. The study included six hundred and eighty-two people who had been previously diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes with an average age of 64. By an average of 2.5 years, twenty-one of the participants were diagnosed with heart and blood vessel disease. Where fat around the inner organs was significantly greater than the amount of fat under the skin, the Type 2 diabetics were 82 percent more likely to develop heart and blood vessel disease than those participants with less fat around the organs. The scientists concluded measuring fat around the organs and just under the skin and dividing the former by the latter gives a ratio able to predict which people with Type 2 diabetes are at high risk for heart attacks or strokes.

Gestational diabetes is the kind diagnosed for the first time during pregnancy. It affects about 7 percent of pregnancies - a fetus receiving high levels of sugar can store it as fat, just as in adults. Overweight children often become obese adults and are then at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Mothers of overweight newborns are at risk of needing c-sections. Scientists at Herning Hospital in Herning, Denmark, found the longer the mother diagnosed with Gestational diabetes followed their prescribed healthy diet, the lower the birthweight of their baby.



Type 2 Diabetes - Type 1.5 or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA)

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 17:59:01 -0500

What we once knew about diabetes seems much simpler than it has turned out to be.Type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes occurred in children and was caused by antibodies destroying the beta cells, the ones that make insulin in the pancreas. Type 2, or mature-onset, diabetes took place in adults usually over the age of 50. This form of diabetes was caused by insulin resistance, often brought on by being overweight or obese along with leading a sedentary lifestyle. Then we learned children could also acquire Type 2 diabetes, and "juvenile-onset" was dropped from Type 1. Type 3, or Gestational, diabetes was found to take place in pregnancy and acted like a temporary form of Type 2 diabetes, which was usually "cured" by the birth of the pregnant mother's infant.nNow the fourth form of diabetes, dubbed Type 1.5, has been found.
