All quotes about Diabetes

Francesco Rubino

In many patients, blood sugar levels go back to normal within days, long before declines in fat levels or weight.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I have a small condition about my blood pressure, related to my diabetes. Thank God, I'm well now.feedback

Tracy Watts

Preventive care is excluded from the deductible. ... Employers would love to see drugs associated with chronic conditions, like meds for diabetes or high blood pressure, excluded.feedback

Diane Abbott

Everyone who has type 2 diabetes knows it is a perfectly manageable condition.feedback

Stephen Furst

The doctors told me that amputation might be the only way to stop the spreading infection.feedback

Stephen Furst

The way to deal with the devil of obesity and diabetes is literally one day at a time. When I achieved my weight goal, I bought myself a bracelet inscribed with the following 12-Step prayer: 'God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.' The magic is you can change more things than you could ever dream of.feedback

Andrew Stokes

Even if we were to dramatically step up prevention efforts tomorrow, there is a generation of children, over 100 million globally, that will likely have to grapple their entire lives with weight-related diseases, such as diabetes and heart diseases and also face higher rates of premature mortality.feedback

Ashkan Afshin

Most of the obese people are dying because of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The change in physical activity preceded the global increase in obesity. We have more processed food, more energy-dense food, more intense marketing of food products, and these products are more available and more accessible. The food environment seems to be the main driver of obesity. . It is all very nice to talk about the need to eat less unhealthy foods and more healthy foods.feedback

Martin Neovius

Severe obesity confers excess risk for so many other negative outcomes for pregnancy: pre-eclampsia, diabetes, still-birth. It's really not a good place to be.feedback

Stephen Colagiuri

We need to actually improve the care of people's diabetes. We know what to do in that regard it is only a matter of organizing health systems. We need to be able to educate people and the general public to know whether that is the increased risk of developing diabetes or having undiagnosed diabetes and what they can do to be screened for diabetes and then the third thing is to prevent people from developing diabetes.feedback

Omar Kassaar

Excess sugar is well known to be bad for us when it comes to diabetes and obesity, but this potential link with Alzheimer's disease is yet another reason that we should be controlling our sugar intake in our diets.feedback

Diane Abbott

The first time I became aware that I was a target of a national campaign was when people in marginals in the north were WhatsApping me to say there were ad vans talking about me, with a picture of me and Jeremy on. Then there were these targeted Facebook ads. There was one which was a mashup ad which made it sound as if I supported al Qaida. We did contemplate taking legal action.feedback

Stephen Gitelman

We just wanted to get a sense if this showed some benefit in adults so we could get to the target population in kids. The conservative estimate is that beta cell function was maybe 19 percent better at one year. So it's not a slam-dunk home run.feedback

Stephen Gitelman

On average the people that got the medicine used less insulin.feedback

Andrew Rakeman

It's taking an old drug and repurposing it for a new use. This definitely does not show that Gleevec is curing type 1 diabetes.feedback

Andrew Rakeman

That would be one potential pathway -- to use the drug to try to get in as early as possible when there are still as many beta cells remaining as possible and to slow down progression and potentially even keep people off insulin. It's estimated that people at the time they are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes that they have anywhere between 10 and 15 or maybe even 40 percent of their beta cells still remaining. Some people maintain beta cell function for years. We used to think all or nearly all of the beta cells are destroyed very rapidly.feedback

Azeem Majeed

The risk of death and diseases increases as your weight increases. People who are overweight are at high risk of mortality and other diseases [beyond obesity itself]. People often assume you need to be really fat to be at risk. But once you hit a BMI of 25, your risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer all begin to increase.feedback

Angela Bassett

You're a prize. Think well of yourself. Every one is, but you are one and don't forget.feedback

Angela Bassett

I think it's extremely important. It's life and death. Whether you can see a doctor whether you can get your medication whether you can afford it.feedback

Angela Bassett

It's thrilling you know, it's all new to me, the whole super hero and huge franchise [movies]. It was cast from actors from all over the globe. I think that fans have been asking for it, looking for it, expecting it, and you're going to be satisfied.feedback

Angela Bassett

That's another one. I'm like what's going on? I love it, it's thrilling.feedback

Angela Bassett

My mother had Type 2 diabetes as well as her brother, her eldest brother. At that time we were unaware about this link, this connection between Type 2 diabetes and heart disease which is what she passed from.feedback

Diane Abbott

I am not sure what colour I can add. I have always enjoyed good health until the last few years. And diabetes, in itself, would not stop me doing Women's Hour. I am worried about telling untruths about my health which are easily disproved.feedback

Kasia Lipska

We can't predict what happens to people just based on the mechanisms of these drugs. We have to study large groups of patients and examine what drugs reduce complications of diabetes such as heart attacks, and in which patients. I tell them, this is what we know and this is what we don't know.feedback

John B. Buse

I have patients who flip out if their A1C level is above seven. Some are desperate to get it to six. I try to talk them down, but sometimes I fail.feedback

Vito Ciaccia

They were always upping the dosage of drugs, wanting to get to seven. One doctor was very adamant and very demanding. He told me if I didn't do what he said, I would not be here much longer.feedback

Vikram Singh - Glooko

From a business model perspective, I think that Amazon Alexa could do a lot to bring their Echo devices into the enterprise chronic care management space. That takes it away from just being a consumer device.feedback

Vikram Singh - Glooko

We've heard a lot from Apple and Google, especially about hardware. We were more surprised to hear from Amazon.feedback

Teemu Niiranen

Especially staying lean and avoiding diabetes seemed to be very important. This association is thought to be mainly caused by the excess inflammation and neurohormonal imbalances associated with obesity and diabetes.feedback

Todd Hembree

Every life flight that we have to take to save an addicted child or treat an overdose, that's a cancer treatment that we don't have money for. That's diabetes treatment that we don't have money for. You don't have to be addicted to opioids to be harmed by this. The resources of the Cherokee Nation are being spent on this crisis that otherwise should be spent on our ordinary, everyday healthcare needs which are very significant.feedback

Zhaoli Dai

Increasing dietary fiber is one of the most economical ways to reduce the pain of knee osteoarthritis. And there are a lot of other benefits as well – reduced weight, reduced cardiovascular risk, reduced diabetes risk.feedback

Peter Amenta - Joslin Diabetes Center

He really took the time to get to know our patients and bond with them about his own experiences living with type 1 diabetes. It was a very special day for all of us.feedback

Jamie Oliver

It's awful, it's awful. [Theresa May] will regret it. We know the diseases that the NHS are overtly paying for now and being punished for and crucified now on cost, which is largely obesity, type 2 diabetes and diet-related diseases. This tracks from childhood. It doesn't just happen [during adulthood], it tracks from childhood. As far as I see it … the school is at the front line of the fight against obesity and diet-related disease.feedback

Rhonda Bentley-Lewis

I stress to my patients that we're not talking about a huge amount of weight, just 5 to 7 percent of one's body weight.feedback

Ujué Fresán

This study found that replacing one sugar-sweetened soda beverage or beer with one serving of water per day at the start of the study was related to a lower incidence of obesity and to a higher weight loss over a four-year period in the case of beer. As obesity carries a high risk for the development of other diseases like diabetes or cardiovascular disease, the possible effects of substituting these beverages with water is an important target to consider in future public health research.feedback

Kevin Schulman

Having a new competitor in the market would be great. Having a competitor that would potentially be transparent would be potentially even more interesting. If Amazon would know that you have diabetes or hypertension they could do a lot with that data. In principle, they could set up a marketplace where they behave differently, with different rules and different privacy practices.feedback

Emily Burns

We know that being physically inactive can increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes, and while we need to wait for the full results, this research suggests that changes inside the body could start after only two weeks of inactivity. We can all find ways to include physical activity in our daily life - even walking to work or using stairs.feedback

Samantha Katz

I think there is a lack of awareness about glucose, which is concerning to me because it impacts our bodily systems from weight loss to hormones to cardiac health.feedback

Kathryn Drennan

I think for the average pregnant women, they shouldn't be concerned about this. I think from a systems-wide level, it's a bigger concern especially with the warming climate. This is the first study I've seen looking at this particular aspect of gestational diabetes. It's a nice way to start looking at this relationship.feedback

Gillian Booth

It's compelling evidence that air temperature is tied with increasing gestational risk. That may seem like a small number, but 10 to 15 million women around the world have gestational diabetes annually and that may potentially have a big impact.feedback

Theresa May

So as well as extra money going into the NHS we need to make sure we are spending is being spent as effectively as possible with an absolute focus on patient care. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. I have never been fox hunting. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years. A new parliament will take us through to 2022 which is three years beyond the 2019 and I will be round.feedback

Theresa May

I inject five times a day, . I am a type one diabetic. That means when I eat, I have to inject insulin, which I do. I will be injecting myself four or five times a day... You just get into a routine. You depend on that insulin and you just build that routine into your daily life. The crucial thing to me is being a diabetic doesn't stop you from doing anything. Overall in the five years from 2015 to 2020 we are spending half a trillion pounds on the NHS.feedback

Theresa May

My view is that it should be a free vote for parliament so members of parliament individually should be able to exercise their view on this matter. During the Conservative Party leadership campaign, we started to see some pretty nasty videos being sent round about me. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years.feedback

John McGann

Humans have excellent olfactory abilities. Freud believed that smell was part of a tension between our animalistic roots and our rational higher nature, which could be a source of neuroticism and mental disorder. Humans can follow scent trails through a park and medical technologists have been smelling urine samples for diabetes for decades. Sommeliers and perfumers do have very developed senses of smell, but this often comes about through practice and training on how to label smells that most lay people don't know the words for.feedback

Gwen Jorgensen

It's very healthy for both the baby and the mom to stay active. There's less risk of diabetes and things like that if you stay healthy and active, so that's definitely a huge reason, but it also keeps me mentally happy. I feel best when I'm active.feedback

Amy Leyendecker

If it weren't for the online diabetes community I would be dead.feedback

Claudia Storicks

That would mean that my diabetes would get out of control, my foot would probably get worse, and I'd probably end up in hospital and losing my house.feedback

Jamie Oliver

These bloody politicians that are like ships that pass in the night they're not necessarily expert in anything. They've possibly never even run a f---ing business. If they're entrusted with the responsibility to represent the community, the very least they can do is go and talk to a GP, a doctor, a bariatric surgeon, [or] a podiatrist that takes limbs off people because they've got type II diabetes.feedback

David Ricks

We wake up every day trying to invent new medicines and get them to people who are sick. This initiative… is one way people with high-deductible plans or pay cash can pay a price similar to what big insurance companies get. When people go to the pharmacy counter and have that sticker shock, often they do walk away. This, maybe, can bridge some people to fill their prescription, control their diabetes a little better. I think everyone's better off in that system.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

I would love to put us in a head-to-head to see how they do. Watson is a joke, just to be completely honest. I probably should have been more careful with my words. I have companies that we've been building and incubating for years in things like cancer and diabetes where we're bringing machine learning to the market where we've competed with competitors including IBM. I'm in the business of buying things that can grow in meaningful multiples ... over five to 10 year periods.feedback

Nancy A. LeaMond - AARP

AARP is deeply disappointed in today's vote by the House to pass this deeply flawed health bill. The bill will put an Age Tax on us as we age, harming millions of American families with health insurance, forcing many to lose coverage or pay thousands of dollars more for health care. In addition, the bill now puts at risk the 25 million older adults with preexisting conditions, such as cancer and diabetes, who would likely find health care unaffordable or unavailable to them.feedback

Maggie Fox - NBC News

Some supporters of the AHCA say it's about personal responsibility. After all, why should all the customers of a health insurance plan pay for people who wait until they are sick or injured to buy coverage? But medical groups from the American Medical Association to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) say health insurers often made up their own definitions of preexisting conditions. And they often denied coverage to people born with such conditions, or who developed them in childhood.feedback

Jennifer Reilly

Last week, the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act, which would cut Medicaid considerably and allow insurance companies to charge people with preexisting conditions significantly more for coverage. As a mom of four kids — two with Type 1 diabetes, an unpreventable, incurable and expensive disease — I am terrified that this [].feedback

Mike Knapton

These estimations are calculated based on commonly used and widely accepted heart disease risk factors. Most of a person's risk estimation is determined by age, genetics (family history and ethnicity) and other modifiable risk factors including diet, weight, level of physical activity, smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes. People with a non-O blood group type – AO, BO and AB – need to take the same steps as anyone wanting to reduce their CVD risk.feedback

Lars Fruergaard Jorgensen - Novo Nordisk

When we lift the lower end of the range it is mainly because now we are four months into the year and we have not been exposed to any change in the political environment, hence the risk is lower. Sales were driven by our new, innovative products within diabetes and obesity care, and we are seeing the effects of our cost control initiatives.feedback

Huaidong Du

The sugar in fruit is not the same as the sugar in manufactured foods and may be metabolized differently. And there are other nutrients in fruit that may benefit in other ways.feedback

Ali Tavassoli

Someone with obesity or diabetes might be taking a pill for 40 or 50 years. What happens when you take a drug like this for that long? What happens to you? These are big unanswered questions. I can't see these things getting regulatory approval.feedback

Samantha Heller

There are some experts who suggest that intermittent fasting may help with weight control, but for markers for heart disease and diabetes management, the jury is still out – especially on how healthy and sustainable this approach is. Intermittent fasting does not teach strategies for making healthy choices and managing life's ups and downs.feedback

Wouter van Marken Lichtenbelt

It has previously been assumed that stable fixed indoor temperatures would satisfy comfort and health in most people. However, this research indicates that mild, cold and variable temperatures may have a positive effect on our health and at the same time are acceptable or even may create pleasure.feedback

Cate Reese

I guess I was pretty sassy. When I lose, it's not a fun car ride home. She has the skills to play at the next level. I love basketball so much that it's hard to believe when others don't love it as much as I do.feedback

Virginia Flores - Cypress

Initially, it was devastating for Cate. I pulled her into my office and asked her what was getting to her the most about her situation. ... To her, everything and everyone is beatable. But diabetes is not something you defeat. It's something you manage. So when she said, This is forever,' my heart just broke for her in that moment.feedback

Cate Reese

I get very passionate, and I yell at people. But I don't mean it like that -- I just get excited.feedback

Virginia Flores - Cypress

It's made me see life through a different perspective. You only get one life to live. I'm grateful I can still play. I'm still here.feedback

Cate Reese

Along the way, I've met a lot of teammates who have become like my sisters. But it's been great the past two years of high school and the past four years in AAU to play with my actual sister. It's hard to put into words how much she means to me. She's my biggest supporter and my best friend. I don't know what I would do without her.feedback

Joey Simmons

She's a bulldog. She plays as hard as anybody I've coached. If the ball is loose, she is diving at it, jumping for it, pushing, shoving -- anything it takes. She never stops the whole game. She's a special player when it comes to being relentless.feedback

Florence Brown

Mrs. G. came to our offices for her first visit distraught. Her primary care doctor had just diagnosed her with diabetes, and she was here for advice. She was shocked by the diagnosis. She had always been overweight and had relatives with diabetes, but she believed she lived a healthy lifestyle. One of the habits [].feedback

Daniel Green

We already knew about pregnancy related hypertension after abdominal irradiation, and about diabetes (but not pregnancy related diabetes) after abdominal irradiation. We did not know there was an increased risk for anemia during pregnancy.feedback

Elaine Ostrander

All these breeds are members of the same species. They all have their chromosomes organized the same way – same genes, same order. It's very subtle variation in small numbers of genes that account for that very large difference in morphology that we see across breeds. We have a yellow brick road for figuring out how mutations move around the dog world. We recognize that everything humans get, dogs get – epilepsy, cancer, diabetes, heart disease. We can actually trace diseases as they move around the dog breed population.feedback

Chris Askew - NHS England

As a nation, we're consuming too much sugar. This can lead to weight gain and in turn increase our risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and other health conditions such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. It's great news that NHS England is leading by example and taking this step to make hospitals healthier places for all of us.feedback

Simon Stevens

A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but spoonfuls of added sugar day-in, day-out mean serious health problems. It's great that following discussion with NHS England, big name retailers are agreeing to take decisive action, which helps send a powerful message to the public and NHS staff about the link between sugar and obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.feedback

Rachel Johnson

They may have a role for people with diabetes and in weight loss, but we encourage people to drink water, low-fat milk or other beverages without added sweeteners.feedback

Mary Hannon-Fletcher

These data are sound as far as they go. However it is important to note 'the associations between recent and higher cumulative intake of artificially sweetened soft drinks and dementia were no longer significant after additional adjustment for vascular risk factors and diabetes mellitus' – as the editor also pointed out. So are the conclusions sound? Perhaps not.feedback

Dominic Caruso

The diabetes market is very price sensitive, and (net) prices have been declining for some time. They're growing very, very rapidly.feedback

Doug Schenkel - Cowen and Company

Abbott, Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson, Becton, Dickinson and Company and Roche, just to name five established big clinical companies, have taken decades to where we are today. What Apple is trying to do is harder. This is really tough stuff.feedback

Doug Clinton - Loup Ventures

Transforming medicine has long been a focus at Apple, particularly under [CEO] Tim Cook. The company pioneered ResearchKit to drive forward medical research through rich patient data. Apple also created CareKit to enable developers to create better applications that help users manage their health. Developing solutions for a condition like diabetes, which affects millions of people around the world, is a next logical step.feedback

Steve Pacelli - DexCom

We certainly have an idea of what they are working on. There have been hundreds of millions of dollars spent on non-invasive technologies, but none of them have been able to achieve the clinical needs or accuracy for patients living with diabetes. Think the amount of money that people spend on athletics, running triathlons, marathons. Maintaining an appropriate level of glucose can absolutely affect your performance.feedback

Karen C. Reidelbach

I think it's interesting that soda alone is demonized as the cause of type 2 diabetes instead of the sugar in the form of simple carbohydrates. Follow the money. Our health isn't really the top priority.feedback

David Tanne

There is growing evidence that insulin carries out multiple functions in the brain and thus poor regulation of insulin may contribute to accelerated cognitive decline and potentially to Alzheimer's disease. It is not just people with Type 2 diabetes. Even people with mild or moderate insulin resistance who don't have Type 2 diabetes are at increased risk over time.feedback

Hannah Gardener

Patients and physicians need to work together to monitor and minimize the burden of vascular health factors like smoking, obesity, blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes with the goal of protecting both heart and brain health decades before Alzheimer's disease typically manifests.feedback

Robert E. Ratner

We don't have the final answers by any means. But this is a positive step forward to improving the lives of people with diabetes.feedback

Martin J. Abrahamson

People with diabetes have to manage their diabetes 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Developing remote care models is going to be the key if we're going to have some sort of impact on improving glucose control for the millions of people with diabetes. It's a much more scalable model than seeing people in a doctor's office.feedback

Sami Inkinen

I simply thought that millions of people living with Type 2 diabetes deserved better than lifelong and costly 'management' of the disease.feedback

Andrew Stokes

These findings point to an urgent need for strategies to prevent diabetes in the general population. For those already affected, they highlight the importance of timely diagnosis and aggressive management to prevent complications, such as coronary heart disease, stroke and lower-extremity amputations.feedback

Matt Petersen

What's most important is why it is and what we can do about it. The goal of research is prevention and, if possible, cure. Short of uncovering a cure, key is figuring out how do we best treat it and reduce complications.feedback

Matt Petersen

So I think the public should hear [that] yes, diabetes can be deadly, but that we have the ability to reduce the chance for this disease. And for those who have diabetes, we can treat it well and reduce the risk for debilitating and deadly complications.feedback

Andrew Stokes

We tried to piece together causes of mortality in the U.S., looking closer at diabetes, which we knew was underreported.feedback

Catherine Cowie

When diabetes started 10 to 30 or more years before a patient died, the disease may not be in the forefront of the attending physician at time of death. But still, it's hard [to get the full picture] in this day and age when health care for diabetics is divided between different practitioners.feedback

Catherine Cowie

We've been trying to promote healthy lifestyle to prevent diabetes and complications for a long time. This includes paying attention to 'the ABCs,' which are to bring down A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol. But I think this [study] is new evidence that it's important to focus on these things. It's more data to show what diabetes can lead to.feedback

Andrew Stokes

We argue diabetes is responsible for 12 percent of deaths in the U.S., rather than 3.3 percent that death certificates indicate. We hope a fuller understanding of the burden of disease associated with diabetes will influence public authorities in their messaging, funding and policy decisions, such as taxation of sugar-sweetened beverages and use of subsidies to make healthy foods more accessible.feedback

Jenny Shapiro

The tumor has shrunk by half. Even if it were to get bigger again later, it's given us all this time. We are so grateful to St. Jude's. It was a crazy time. She was surrounded by kids with her same condition and never felt like an outcast. She got to be a real teenager. She got to hang around with her brain tumor group and be independent. Her insulin is at a great number and she has no more diabetes. She has still remained active even though she has put on the pounds.feedback

Jenkin Au - Steelcase

The evolution of technology and changing work styles have revolutionised the way we work, but they have also placed a greater strain on our bodies. Sitting statically all day can increase the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, as well as creating tension in our backs. Compounded with these health issues, workers seated in poorly designed chairs are also more focused on their discomfort, meaning they are less focused on their work.feedback

Chris Christie

This issue causes enormous pain and destruction to everyday families in every state in this country. Addiction is a disease, and it's a disease that can be treated. Folks don't talk about it. We talked about cancer, we talk about heart disease, we talk about diabetes, and we're not afraid to talk about it. But people are afraid and ashamed to talk about drug addiction. And while they don't talk about it, we lose lives – lives of good people.feedback

Louise Brown - Medical Research Council

Overall, the uncovering of this association is interesting but I do not feel that is of great help in our fight against the increasing global incidence of diabetes , unless they are suggesting that we all move to colder climates. If they have stumbled across a useful pointer that leads to appropriate metabolic research on the role of brown fat in the development of diabetes then great, but their claims are too strong at this stage.feedback

David Spiegelhalter

Even if these estimates were true, it would mean a 2 degrees rise in average temperature was associated with an increased incidence of diabetes of 0.7 per cent.feedback

Mikhail Kosiborod

The fact that the results are remarkably consistent from country to country regardless of which compound predominates, that certainly seems to suggest that it's a class effect.feedback

Karen Gunson

There were teenagers. There were small children. There were kids that were 10 or 12. There have been teenagers who have been under 18 but have made their own decision to not seek medical care. In the past several years they had children who died from complications from natural diseases that could have been treated. Insulin-dependent diabetes, infections like pneumonias…. They died of natural diseases. Some of them were eminently treatable.feedback

Emily Burns

We're looking forward to seeing the results in 2018. In the meantime, we encourage people with Type 2 diabetes to follow a healthy diet that is low in sugar, saturated fats and salt. We know that diet, exercise and medications can help people with Type 2 diabetes to manage their condition. We're starting to see mounting evidence that putting Type 2 diabetes into remission is feasible as well.feedback

Natalia McInnes

The research might shift the paradigm of treating diabetes from simply controlling glucose to an approach where we induce remission and then monitor patients for any signs of relapse. The idea of reversing the disease is very appealing to individuals with diabetes. It motivates them to make significant lifestyle changes. This likely gives the pancreas a rest and decreases fat stores in the body, which in turn improves insulin production and effectiveness.feedback

Jerry Summers

I emerged from the week drinking water in huge amounts and going to the bathroom at every opportunity. By God. I've got diabetes. It was not obesity, poor diet, lack of exercise, or wrath of God.feedback

Neil Stanley

I'm regularly asked by workers how they can get by on less sleep but I ask them, Why on earth would you want that?' Given the cognitive disadvantages, plus the health consequences that include a greater risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and depression, there's not a single good thing about poor sleep. It's great to send people on courses and write about sleep in the employee health handbook, but what really works is when bosses stop writing emails at 11pm.feedback

Bert Bierman

For this project, we needed a robot that recognises emotions of the child, which knows how to make a sentence, how to select questions – we had to create all that. And the visualisations on the tablet that we've developed are very important.feedback

Ilona Geurts

The school is half an hour away by bike. So every morning a kid needs to think what he's going to eat during the day, and how much insulin is needed. They need to keep that in mind throughout the day to come back home safely, without getting low blood sugar somewhere on the way.feedback

Meir Stampfer

I don't view these things as either-or. My advice is to start with the Mediterranean diet because it's good for you in multiple ways – lowering risk of cognitive decline, reduction in some cancers, lower risk of diabetes – that go beyond what statins do. So, that's a great starting point. That's a colossal mistake. Quantitatively, you get more mileage from optimal exercise and diet than statins, so it's not one or the other: Everybody needs the diet and exercise, and some people, despite that, will still need statins. It's not a failure; it's not a character flaw – if you need it, you need it.feedback

Gwyneth Paltrow

When my father was diagnosed with cancer in 1998, I really started to think about the link between environmental toxins and cancer. What's the impetus behind the way our bodies are no longer able to overcome all these skyrocketing diseases, from immune disorders to autism to diabetes and cancer? What is going on? That exploration definitely started me down the path. I want to be healthy, to feel as good as I can.feedback

Geng Zong

We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten.feedback

Joel Hyatt - Kaiser Health News

We were doing so much work treating people with hypertension and diabetes, we thought those drugs would be on the list.feedback

Leana Wen

These funds are used to prevent diseases such as hypertension, cancer and diabetes, which are drivers of the major causes of death in the United States.feedback

Van Fousek

I can't do it anymore. I'm completely worn out. I have arthritis so bad and asthma and diabetes.feedback

Omer Kucuk

We now have evidence that soy foods not only prevent breast cancer but also benefit women who have breast cancer. Therefore, we can recommend women to consume soy foods because of soy's many health benefits. In general, soy foods are considered among the healthiest for human consumption. Thus, soy foods may have other health benefits such as prevention of hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in addition to their cancer preventive effects.feedback

Carolyn Arnold

I did not choose to have epilepsy and prior to the ACA, felt punished for having a pre-existing condition. I cannot control the electrical activity in my brain. Some with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, are able to control the condition with proper diet and exercise. I am not that lucky. In order to be a contributing member of this society, I must take medications for the control of seizures. Without coverage, those medications can cost up to $1,000 per month. Without them, my time on this earth would be limited.feedback

Rajeshwari Sundaram

If our results are confirmed, fertility specialists may want to take couples' weight status into account when counseling them about achieving pregnancy. The benefits of a healthy weight are well known: obesity increases the risk for diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.feedback

Livia Augustin

People with breast cancer suffer from several comorbidities, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis, and therefore many health complications; therefore, quitting smoking, increasing vitamin D when necessary, increasing physical activity, and improving dietary aspects are crucial therapeutic targets to reduce complications and health care costs as well as help to live longer with a better quality of life.feedback

With this technology, we can monitor complex behaviour in daily life. For example, we can detect dehydration – when you drink too little during the day. It's also useful for diabetes patients: we can support them with advice about healthier nutritional habits. It can also provide overweight people with recommendations based on actual data.feedback

Dan Witters - Gallup

Obesity is the big one. It continues its relentless climb, it keeps muscling its way higher. It is a real, bone fide health crisis in America. Diabetes gets dragged up with it, same thing with depression.feedback

Kenneth Wright

Late circadian and sleep timing in modern society are associated with negative performance and health outcomes such as morning sleepiness and accidents, reduced work productivity and school performance, substance abuse, mood disorders, diabetes, and obesity. Our findings demonstrate that living in our modern environments contributes to late circadian timing regardless of season and that a weekend camping trip can reset our clock rapidly.feedback

Newly launched products, including Trulicity, Cyramza, Jardiance and Taltz, led Lilly's volume-driven growth in 2016.feedback

Eddie Johnson

For 32 years I've been treating a kidney condition that hasn't interfered with my ability to lead a normal life or be your police superintendent. I don't require dialysis nor do I have diabetes. The statement is so broad. I have no idea what he's talking about.feedback

Mara Buxbaum

Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine. A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.feedback

Colette Heimowitz

If you regulate your blood sugar, you'll burn more fat. If there's less blood sugar around, the body will resort to its backup fuel system, which is fat burning. So yeah, if you can control your blood sugar, you can lose weight – as well as have healthy heart benefits, control diabetes and have more energy.feedback

Daniel Lackland

For some time we have known high risk minority populations have been underrepresented in clinical trials. This major issue is not limited to diabetes studies but also cancer and other clinical trials.feedback

Keith Ferdinand

Certain groups of patients may respond differently to the same therapies.feedback

David Kerr

In the United States the burden of diabetes and the serious complications associated with it fall unfairly on minorities, particularly African Americans, yet it appears that they are under-represented in clinical trials of new therapies and devices. If they are excluded they may be exposed to therapies which may not work or could cause harm. The therapies are also likely to be expensive and ineffective.feedback

Andrew Krumerman

The current study confirms the notion that African American subjects are poorly represented in large cardiovascular outcome trials.feedback

David Knopman

People who eat healthy are often healthier in many other respects. They're much less likely to be obese, they're much less likely to have diabetes, hypertension, much less likely to smoke, more likely to exercise. And they're probably more likely to adhere to good health behaviors in general.feedback

Dimitrios Tzalis

By bridging the gap between the early academic research and the pharmaceutical industry, we have managed to bring potential drug candidates in the fields of neurodegenerative diseases, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and antimicrobial resistance, much closer to the patient.feedback

Adam Briggs

The good news is that our study suggests that all of the most likely industry responses ... have the potential to improve health. The extent of the health benefits of the tax will depend on industry's response.feedback

Susan Jebb

The direction of the effect is clear. This levy will have a positive impact, especially on children's health.feedback

Damien Conover - Morningstar

When you think of the overall patient population, getting it into the primary care users, that's going to be important.feedback

Paul Fonteyne

This new indication represents a tremendous step forward in our efforts to reduce the impact of cardiovascular disease among adults with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease.feedback

Jean-Marc Guettier

Availability of antidiabetes therapies that can help people live longer by reducing the risk of cardiovascular death is an important advance for adults with type 2 diabetes.feedback

Job Godino

Overall, genetic risk information is becoming more and more common, and it's reasonable to assume that given the decreases in sequencing costs genetic risk information will proliferate.feedback

Laura Rosella

The study did not observe that relaying that information changed their short-term behavior. Therefore from the clinical perspective, or from the perspective of motivation behavior change, there does not appear to be a benefit to carrying out these tests for diabetes prevention.feedback

Job Godino

For common complex disorders like diabetes, it very well may not do so.feedback

Vivek Murthy

We must help everyone see that addiction is not a character flaw - it is a chronic illness that we must approach with the same skill and compassion with which we approach heart disease, diabetes and cancer. For far too long too many in our country have viewed addiction as a moral failing.feedback

Roman Hovorka

Development of commercial systems specifically for type 2 diabetes is also a necessity.feedback

Roman Hovorka

We presently use the closed loop system in people with type 2 diabetes staying in hospital. Glucose control in hospital is often suboptimal and our aim is to improve it while people with type 2 diabetes are staying in hospital for various reasons such as treating diabetes complications.feedback

Douglas Owens

The Task Force recommends that people who have a high risk of having a heart attack or stroke over the next 10 years, as calculated by their doctor, and who have a risk factor including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, or are a smoker, should consider taking a statin. In addition, people with a lower risk may also benefit from taking a daily statin.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Excessive sugar consumption is a serious health problem for children and all of us. It can lead to obesity, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Every community in our country will determine how best to address this major health crisis.feedback

Daniel Aaron

The diabetes organizations were really surprising because of the established link between soda and diabetes.feedback

John C. Lechleiter - Lilly

The pharmaceutical giant will expand a program already in place to provide parts of Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and India with treatment for Type 2 diabetes.feedback

Paul E. Peppard

These findings underscore the need to prevent sleep apnoea and screen for sleep apnoea in patients particularly at risk for developing diabetes – e.g., overweight and physically inactive people. Behaviours such as healthy weight maintenance and reducing time in sedentary activities would simultaneously reduce the risk (of) developing sleep apnoea and diabetes.feedback

Mako Nagayoshi

Over the last two decades, evidence has been accruing that sleep apnoea may be associated with insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, and type 2 diabetes.feedback

Brian Elbel

Sugar-sweetened beverages are increasingly linked to health problems such as diabetes. Any information we can find about why this high-risk group of kids is purchasing these drinks is important. We haven't had a great sense of who these kids are, especially at fast food restaurants.feedback

Rashmi Nisha Aurora

Healthcare providers need to be aware of the association and educate their patients and the community.feedback

Douglas Bettcher

Consumption of free sugars, including products like sugary drinks, is a major factor in the global increase of people suffering from obesity and diabetes. If governments tax products like sugary drinks, they can reduce suffering and save lives. They can also cut healthcare costs and increase revenues to invest in health services.feedback

Edwin Torres - Montefiore Health System

This is a phenomenon I've seen as a provider and in the literature. If you lose your job or have job insecurity, make sure you're exercising.feedback

Derek Rapp

This device will mean peace of mind, in knowing a person will be in normal blood sugar range a great majority of the time. It is a major news event that a system of this kind has been approved – the first time a pump will administer insulin as a result of information it receives from a sensor.feedback

Jeffrey Shuren

The FDA is dedicated to making technologies available that can help improve the quality of life for those with chronic diseases -- especially those that require day-to-day maintenance and ongoing attention. This first-of-its-kind technology can provide people with type 1 diabetes greater freedom to live their lives without having to consistently and manually monitor baseline glucose levels and administer insulin.feedback

Betul Hatipoglu - Cleveland Clinic

I can't wait to get my hands on it because I can think of a lot of our patients who need this. Now I have a helper who is going to help me to help them.feedback

Angie Platt

The whole house is just lighter because we are not as worried as much because we are relying on this device.feedback

Derek Rapp

We have been working for more than a decade to insure that both private and public insurers understand the benefits of both continuous glucose monitoring devices and (this device). We want to make sure that people have access in a reasonable fashion to these life-improving technologies.feedback

Angie Platt

This is something that you think about nonstop. You think about it when your kid is on the way to school, when your kid is at school, when your kid is at basketball practice. You never not think about it.feedback

Angie Platt

It was like a fog lifted. Academically and athletically, it was amazing the transformation. It made us realize what for seven years had been his normal.feedback

Angie Platt

My husband and I, for the past seven years, we woke up every night at 10, at midnight and at 3 a.m.feedback

Angie Platt

I have been crying for the past hour. As soon as I saw the email, I just burst into tears.feedback

Sylvia H. Ley

Improving overall diet quality as an adult regardless of where you start, whether you have poor or better initial diet quality, seems to be beneficial for diabetes prevention.feedback

Jordi Salas-Salvado

Three key points to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes are: stay lean, follow a frugal diet and include plenty and large variety of vegetables.feedback

Sylvia H. Ley

Cumulative scientific evidence has supported that improving and maintaining overall quality of healthful diet is beneficial for long-term chronic disease prevention. Chasing after the latest short-term fix is not likely to offer sustained benefits in the long term.feedback

Marc Y. Donath

However it remains to be shown how important are qualitative changes in diet compared to calorie restriction. Based on clinical (experience), my impression is that changes in body weight are much more important.feedback

Subramaniam Sathasivam

People have died but to what extent the haze contributed to it, it's hard to say. If an 80-year-old fellow with high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problem and exposure to haze died, what did he die of? This is hell of a difficult question to answer.feedback

Kenneth Strauss

Insulin injection has been assumed to be simple and require little training, but that's not the case.feedback

Kenneth Strauss

We saw that 'lipos' . . . are at epidemic levels, with one out of three injectors having them.feedback

Kenneth Strauss

By using the shortest needles available, patients can avoid intramuscular injections which can lead to (low blood sugar), including the kind that can land them in the ER or cause an accident.feedback

Robert Gabbay - Joslin Diabetes Center

If anything, this opens people eyes that there are tools our there their provider may not be aware of and to seek out a diabetes educator.feedback

Kenneth Strauss

By carefully rotating sites they will avoid 'lipos' and their insulin will work better. If everyone rotated correctly 'lipos' would probably disappear, insulin consumption would fall and we'd save millions as a consequence.feedback

Robert Gabbay - Joslin Diabetes Center

Those in the know that follow this kind of stuff, there is nothing here surprising or dramatic. But with that said, it's the minority who are prescribing insulin that know all these things.feedback

Joel M. Gelfand

The results are important confirmation of prior work which has suggested that patients with more severe psoriasis have a similar increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events compared to diabetes.feedback

Colleen Pappas

We believe that the combination of diabetes and high blood sugar increases the chances of a number of health problems.feedback

Richard Ridinger

With this acquisition Lonza is taking a further step along our strategic path as a high-value supplier to the healthcare continuum. The deal also boosted Lonza's offerings in cognitive and diabetes health.feedback

Eszter Vamos

Research shows that in addition to severe chest infections, flu may also lead to heart attacks and strokes. Most severe influenza complications occur in the elderly and people who suffer from long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and asthma.feedback

Emanuele Di Angelantonio

The study found that men who were obese were at much higher risk of premature death than obese women. This is consistent with previous observations that obese men have greater insulin resistance, liver fat levels, and diabetes risk than women. On average, overweight people lose about one year of life expectancy, and moderately obese people lose about three years of life expectancy.feedback

Francis Collins - National Institutes of Health

What this study says quite definitively for diabetes is the vast majority of hereditary risk variants are in fact these common ones, and the rare ones, while they pop up here and there, are a much smaller contribution.feedback

Rena Wing

Our data shows no negative effects of losing weight and regaining on (cardiovascular disease) outcomes.feedback

Rena Wing

These changes lead to reductions in inflammation and improvement in (cardiovascular disease) risk factors.feedback

Rena Wing

Weight loss reduces adipose tissue and improves insulin sensitivity.feedback

Edward Gregg

The newer cohort had more active years in part because they are less likely to become disabled in the first place, but once they get there they may come out of it. We do know some very basic things can make a big difference.feedback

Edward Gregg

What we're seeing is that lifespans are increasing and mortality rates are decreasing over time. Really the most substantial finding is the number of active years is increasing.feedback

John B. Buse

To me, the impressive thing about this trial is the consistency across clinical endpoints and its robustness.feedback

Emma Morton-Eggleston

Women with a history of gestational diabetes have a much higher risk of developing diabetes, up to seven times higher over your lifetime. The highest increases in risk are within 10 years of having gestational diabetes.feedback

Emma Morton-Eggleston

For lots of women, it's hard to come in again once you have children, it's hard to keep up with routine medical care.feedback

John B. Buse

I think physicians will look to GLP-1s with greater enthusiasm. The significance of this is that now we can start to change the conversation around diabetes management from one of 'let's manage your blood sugar' to one of 'let's manage your risk of complications'.feedback

Cheryl Bushnell

The healthy diets in this study all emphasize nutrients (fruits and vegetables, fresh vs. non-processed food) that are high in potassium and low in sodium, both of which can help lower blood pressure.feedback

Majid Ezzati

Obesity is the most important risk factor for type 2 diabetes and our attempts to control rising rates of obesity have so far not proved successful.feedback

Margaret Chan - World Health Organization

If we are to make any headway in halting the rise in diabetes, we need to rethink our daily lives: to eat healthily, be physically active, and avoid excessive weight gain. Even in the poorest settings, governments must ensure that people are able to make these healthy choices and that health systems are able to diagnose and treat people with diabetes.feedback

Maria Masucci

Through the removal of damaged proteins and organelles autophagy promotes cell renewal. Failure of autophagy is therefore associated with cell aging and many diseases of old age such as Alzheimer's disease and type two diabetes. Finally, too much autophagy may have undesired effects as for example, in cancer, where autophagy can promote the growth of tumor cells and their resistance towards the cancer drugs.feedback

Casey Crump

Young people should maintain regular exercise and both aerobic and muscular fitness, and avoid barriers to this such as screen time.feedback

Graham MacGregor

This is yet again another example of scandalous amount of sugar added to our food and drink. No wonder we have the highest rates of obesity in Europe. David Cameron now has all the evidence to make the UK the first country in the world to stop the obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemic.feedback

Jose Miguel Mulet

The problem of consuming Stevia as a plant is that it has pharmacological activity. It can produce male infertility and a drop in blood pressure that, in some cases, could be fatal. Another problem is that Stevia is being advertised as a cure for diabetes. This is huge mistake. Stevia does not substitute any diabetes treatment. It's a sweetener suitable for diabetics because it does not increase insulin levels.feedback

Michel Pinget

We must try to provide this insulin to the patient more or less like the pancreas would have done if it would have continued to work. We know that the pancreas creates lots of insulin during each meal to stock the glucose in food. And on the contrary, it creates less insulin in between meals, especially at night, to control sugar production by the liver.feedback

Michel Pinget

This is clearly the road ahead. The disease will always be here. But with this system we can ensure a long-term, easy treatment for patients. A treatment that would also be safe and free of side effects.feedback

Julián López Gómez

And finally, how can we improve the existing treatments? Here in Strasbourg, researchers are working to develop the next great revolution in the treatment against type 1 diabetes. And their secret weapon is a bioartificial pancreas.feedback

Barbara Cahill

Exercising just makes you feel better. In every aspect, even down to your looks. You kind of feel different. You lose a bit of weight as well, which is a benefit. It's great.feedback

John Nolan

Medicine is moving from a more general approach to a much more personalised approach. My hope is that our research will really help people with diabetes or people who are at risk of diabetes of getting a much, much more personal service from medicine.feedback

Richard Bouaoun

Sugar will be able to pass through this semi-permeable membrane. It will then signal its presence to the cells stocked inside the membrane. These cells will be able to create the necessary amount of insulin to return sugar levels in the blood to normal.feedback

Alain Lehmann

It's a pernicious disease that can become perverse, because you never expect it to come.feedback

Alain Lehmann

My diabetes was diagnosed during my military service. I was 24 years old, 36 years ago. A simple urine test detected I had too much sugar in the blood. From that moment the world collapsed a little.feedback

Julián López Gómez

How can we detect diabetes? Here in Finland scientists are developing systems to guarantee early discovery of the disease… via the eyes and the feet.feedback

Julián López Gómez

Diabetes is one of the main public enemies in Europe. According to some studies, this elusive disease affects up to 62 million people, almost 18 percent of the European population. Researchers are inventing groundbreaking tools to introduce new treatments, more accurate early detection and better education in the prevention of the disease.feedback

Christian Petersen

The thing I want to do is to climb a mountain. I think my life is quite normal. I think my life became more healthy after I was told I had type 2 diabetes… instead of just being this lazy boy who I was when I was 18.feedback

Alexandre Mateus

We have people affected by diabetes, high blood pressure, almost all have problems with obesity.feedback

Leandros Skaltsounis

The important outcome of this research project is the library of bioactive compounds. Up to now we've studied biological activity for relevant cosmetics or agrochemical purposes, but in the future this library could be used for other aims, such as tests for diabetes, cancer or other diseases.feedback

Kate Hersov - Medikidz

We used superheros, The MediKidz, a gang of five superheroes from planet Mediland, a planet shaped like the human body, out in space. And we use these five characters as a vehicle to engage children so we can educate them. So what we try and do is allow a child to understand, if they're told they have type 1 diabetes, what is the pancreas, how does it work.feedback

Irina Kim

I have to always have syringes at hand: to take an injection of rapid-acting insulin before every meal, and a long-acting shot every evening.feedback

Heikki Hyöty

Currently we believe that infections which the child experiences before the age of one are very important, and if the child lacks these infections, the immune regulation doesn't develop, and that leads to the diseases like diabetes or allergies.feedback

Natalia Dorshakova

We have reached a certain success in treating diabetes. But so far we can only treat the symptoms and fight complications. Our real task is to prevent the autoimmune process from starting, or at least to stop this process if it is already developing in the pancreas. This is why our goal is to find the causal factors of diabetes. When we get to know our enemy, we will know how to fight it.feedback

Christophe Nguyen

Knowing about your lowering glucose level allows you to take action – eat some sugar – to avoid Hypoglycemia. And the same with Hypoglycemia: a sound signal that we receive allows us to correct that and to avoid the long-term side effects.feedback

Mikael Knip

There's evidence that you have heavier microbial load in Russian Karelia compared to Finland, and of course we think that fits into the hygiene hypothesis. With more microbes early in life you have less autoimmune diseases and allergies.feedback

Sari Mildh-Laakkonen

It might be that it's too clean, the environment here. That's maybe one reason why we have allergies and everything like that.feedback

Shashank Joshi

Type 2 diabetes is only because of improper lifestyle OK, on bad genes, because we developed fuel storage genes, and we have just made it sedentary, and we are not eating the right food, so we are loading our pancreas and our liver to make too much of glucose, and the glucose is not getting metabolised to the energy source.feedback
