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.
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.
We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten.
We were doing so much work treating people with hypertension and diabetes, we thought those drugs would be on the list.
I can't do it anymore. I'm completely worn out. I have arthritis so bad and asthma and diabetes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure, cancer, inflammatory arthritis and meningitis and severe joint disease have become chronically managed diseases of dogs in recent decades, rather than diagnoses that forced a euthanasia decision.
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.
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.
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.
Newly launched products, including Trulicity, Cyramza, Jardiance and Taltz, led Lilly's volume-driven growth in 2016.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Certain groups of patients may respond differently to the same therapies.
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.
The current study confirms the notion that African American subjects are poorly represented in large cardiovascular outcome trials.
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.
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.
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.
The direction of the effect is clear. This levy will have a positive impact, especially on children's health.
When you think of the overall patient population, getting it into the primary care users, that's going to be important.
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.
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.
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.
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.
For common complex disorders like diabetes, it very well may not do so.
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.
Development of commercial systems specifically for type 2 diabetes is also a necessity.
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.
I want you to imagine only one in ten people with diabetes or cancer getting treatment. We wouldn't tolerate it. It's absolutely imperative that we invest in treatment to get people the help they need.
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.
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.
The diabetes organizations were really surprising because of the established link between soda and diabetes.
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.
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.
Over the last two decades, evidence has been accruing that sleep apnoea may be associated with insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, and type 2 diabetes.
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.
Healthcare providers need to be aware of the association and educate their patients and the community.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This device will mean peace of mind, in knowing a person will be in normal blood sugar range a great majority of the time.
The whole house is just lighter because we are not as worried as much because we are relying on this device.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My husband and I, for the past seven years, we woke up every night at 10, at midnight and at 3 a.m.
I have been crying for the past hour. As soon as I saw the email, I just burst into tears.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Insulin injection has been assumed to be simple and require little training, but that's not the case.
We saw that 'lipos' . . . are at epidemic levels, with one out of three injectors having them.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We believe that the combination of diabetes and high blood sugar increases the chances of a number of health problems.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There was a whole furious debate that arose about this.
Our data shows no negative effects of losing weight and regaining on (cardiovascular disease) outcomes.
These changes lead to reductions in inflammation and improvement in (cardiovascular disease) risk factors.
Weight loss reduces adipose tissue and improves insulin sensitivity.
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.
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.
To me, the impressive thing about this trial is the consistency across clinical endpoints and its robustness.
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.
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.
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'.
We have people affected by diabetes, high blood pressure, almost all have problems with obesity.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Young people should maintain regular exercise and both aerobic and muscular fitness, and avoid barriers to this such as screen time.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's a pernicious disease that can become perverse, because you never expect it to come.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It might be that it's too clean, the environment here. That's maybe one reason why we have allergies and everything like that.
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.
