Metronom Health: Building Smaller, More Accurate and Cheaper CGM

As more companies eye the ever-expanding continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) universe, an almost unheard-of little startup in California is developing a new sensing product that could truly change the game. The idea sounds a bit contradictory, o...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: PeptidesAuthor(s): Rabeet Khan, Alejandra Tomas, Guy A. RutterAbstractGlucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is a gut-derived incretin that, in common with glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), has both insulin releasing and extra-pancreatic glucoregulatory actions. GIP is released in response to glucose or fat absorption and acts on the GIP receptor (GIPR) to potentiate insulin release from pancreatic beta cells. GIP has also been shown to promote beta cell survival and stimulate the release of GLP-1 from islet alpha cells. There is now evidence to suggest ...

Authors: Doulberis M, Papaefthymiou A, Polyzos SA, Katsinelos P, Grigoriadis N, Srivastava DS, Kountouras J Abstract Obese or overweight people exceed one-third of the global population and obesity along with diabetes mellitus consist basic components of metabolic syndrome, both of which are known cardio-cerebrovascular risk factors with detrimental consequences. These data signify the pandemic character of obesity and the necessity for effective treatments. Substantial advances have been accomplished in preclinical research of obesity by using animal models, which mimic the human disease. In particular, rodent mod...

Authors: Babinska A, Kaszubowski M, Kmieć P, Sworczak K Abstract BACKGROUND: Adipose tissue secretes many adipokines and cytokines, which may be an additional risk factor of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in patients with an incidentally discovered pheochromocytoma (PHEO). The aim of the study was to investigate levels of selected adipocytokines in these patients. METHODS: This prospective study included 12 patients with an incidentally discovered PHEO and 18 healthy participants. In all participants plasma/serum concentrations of triglycerides, HDL and LDL cholesterol, insulin, glucose, adipocytokines ...

Authors: Xiong Q, Liu J, Xu Y Abstract With the deepening of the researches on uric acid, especially in the study of metabolic diseases, uric acid has been found to be closely related to obesity, metabolic syndrome, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, diabetes, and other metabolic diseases. Uric acid causes a series of pathophysiological changes through inflammation, oxidative stress, vascular endothelial injury, and so on and thus subsequently promotes the occurrence and development of diseases. This review confirmed the positive correlation between uric acid and diabetes mellitus and its chronic complications throu...

This study evaluated the effect of combined inositol hexakisphosphate (IP6) and inositol supplement on organ weight, intestinal ATPase activities, complete blood count, and serum analytes in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced type 2 diabetic rats. High-fat diet and a single intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (35 mg/kg body weight) were used to induce type 2 diabetes mellitus in Sprague-Dawley rats. The diabetic groups were then treated with either combined IP6 and inositol supplement or glibenclamide for four weeks. Organ weights, intestinal ATPase activities, complete blood count, serum α-amylase, total pr...
