Diabetes type 2 warning: Why you should never ignore this symptom in your ears
DIABETES type 2 symptoms usually include weight loss, feeling very tired, and making more toilet trips than normal. But you could also be at risk of high blood sugar symptoms if you have this sign in your ears. Are you at risk?
CONCLUSIONS: Although significance was not established because of sample size, there was a definite trend toward significance that merits further investigation with human amniotic allograft.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo explore the relationship between the built environment and type 2 diabetes, considering both risk factors and policies to reduce risk. The built environment refers to the physical characteristics of the areas in which people live including buildings, streets, open spaces, and infrastructure.Recent FindingsA review of current literature suggests an association between the built environment and type 2 diabetes, likely driven by two key pathways —physical activity and the food environment. Other hypothesized mechanisms linking the built environment and type 2 diabetes include housing policy, ...
ConclusionsResults suggest that treatment intensification is often delayed despite consistently poor glycaemic control for more than 12 months, contrary to treatment guideline recommendations. Findings from this study highlight that some T2DM patients may benefit from more rapid treatment intensification, which could improve glycaemic control and reduce the risk for many short- and long-term health complications.

According to a recent study in mice, stimulating the pancreas with ultrasound might one day provide a noninvasive way of treating type 2 diabetes.
DIABETES type 2 symptoms include unexplained weight loss, extreme tiredness, and passing more urine than normal. You could be at risk of high blood sugar if you develop a rash in the folds of your skin. Should you speak to a doctor about the signs of diabetes?
(Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan) A new discovery made mainly in mice could provide new options for getting the insulin-making 'factories' of the pancreas going again when diabetes and obesity have slowed them down. It could offer new pathways to ramping up insulin supply to get metabolism back on track in people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
Publication date: Available online 18 May 2019Source: Canadian Journal of DiabetesAuthor(s): Robert SchlosserAbstractThe progressive natural history underlying type 2 diabetes often necessitates the use of multiple anti-hyperglycemic medications to achieve therapeutic goals and targets. The associated complexity of these regimens presents significant challenges to both physicians and patients. Fixed dose oral and fixed ratio injectable combination agents offer significant potential to simplify and consolidate therapy and lessen barriers to adherence.
ConclusionsUsing both traditional and novel data analysis methodologies, this study identified baseline glycemic status as the strongest predictor of target glycemic control attainment. Machine learning algorithms provide an hypothesis-free, unbiased methodology, which can greatly enhance the search for predictors of therapeutic success in T2DM. The approach used in the present analysis provides an example of how a machine learning algorithm can be applied to a clinical dataset and used to develop predictions that can facilitate clinical decision making.
Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes DOI: 10.1055/a-0879-2968Human fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is primarily produced and secreted by the liver as a hepatokine. This hormone circulates to its target tissues (e. g., brain, adipose tissue), which requires two components, one of the preferred FGF receptor isoforms (FGFR1c and FGFR3c) and the co-factor beta-Klotho (KLB) to trigger downstream signaling pathways. Although targeting FGF21 signaling in humans by analogues and receptor agonists results in beneficial effects, e. g., improvements in plasma lipids and decreased body weight, it failed to recapitulate the i...
