Diabetes: Eating four gummy bears could help you maintain blood sugar levels

DIABETES type 1 sufferers sometimes need to maintain their blood sugar levels to avoid health problems. A slight fall in these levels is concerning but not life threatening, whereas an extreme reduction could be life threatening. Try eating this to maintain blood sugar levels.

Thus, 11β-HSD1 amplifies glucocorticoid action at the tissue level. According to the current literature, dysregulation of glucocorticoid signaling may contribute to the pathogenesis of the metabolic syndrome in which regener...

The effect of meal on blood glucose concentration is a key issue in diabetes mellitus because its estimation could be very useful in therapy decisions. In the case of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), the therapy based on automatic insulin delivery requires a closed-loop control system to maintain euglycaemia even in the postprandial state. Thus, the mathematical modelling of glucose metabolism is relevant to predict the metabolic state of a patient. Moreover, the eating habits are characteristic of each person, so it is of interest that the mathematical models of meal intake allow to personalise the glycaemic state of the ...

An MIT-led research team has developed a drug capsule -- about the size of a blueberry -- that could be used to deliver oral doses of insulin, potentially replacing the injections that people with Type 1 diabetes have to give themselves every day. In tests in animals, the researchers showed that ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item.

(Natural News) Patients with Type 1 diabetes can thank Oregon-based researchers for developing a wearable medical device that works like an artificial pancreas. 3D printed instead of built, its nano sensors keep a constant eye on blood glucose levels, so that it can deliver insulin and glucagon to the patient whenever necessary. The new device was designed by researchers...

AbstractObjectiveCognitive impairments in type 1 diabetes may result from hyperglycemia ‐associated cerebral microangiopathy. We aimed to identify cerebral microangiopathy and skin microvascular dysfunction—as a surrogate marker for generalized microvascular function—as predictors of cognitive performance over time.MethodsIn this prospective cohort study, 25 type 1 diabetes patients with proliferative retinopathy and 25 matched healthy controls underwent neurocognitive testing at baseline and after follow ‐up (3.8 ± 0.8 years). At baseline, 1.5‐T cerebral magnetic resonance imaging w...
