Type 2 diabetes: Include this 55p food in your diet to lower your blood sugar

TYPE 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that requires a person to revise their dietary practices to stave off the risk of rising blood sugar levels. A key aspect of this is to shun or significantly cut back on foods known to cause sugar spikes, and up foods that have been shown to keep blood sugar levels under control - one food in particular has been shown to lower blood sugar.

Introduction Intestinal metabolism and microbiota profiles are impaired in obesity and insulin resistance. Moreover, dysbiotic gut microbiota has been suggested to promote systemic low-grade inflammation and insulin resistance through the release of endotoxins particularly lipopolysaccharides. We have previously shown that exercise training improves intestinal metabolism in healthy men. To understand whether changes in intestinal metabolism interact with gut microbiota and its release of inflammatory markers, we studied the effects of sprint interval (SIT) and moderate-intensity continuous training (MICT) on intestinal m...

Kelsey et al performed a secondary data analysis on 8  814 youth in the HEALTHY study, which included ethnically and racially diverse 11- to 15-year-olds with a range of body mass index (BMI) and risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D). The American Diabetes Association uses hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) as a test to screen and diagnose pre-diabetes based on data in adults. These criteria have been extrapolated to youth despite a lack of data on how a pre-diabetes HbA1c in youth predicts risk of future T2D or diabetes complications.

Authors: Le P, Chaitoff A, Rothberg MB, McCullough A, Alkhouri N Abstract BackgroundWe aimed to estimate population-based trends in prevalence of coexisting type 2 diabetes (T2D) and suspected non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and pioglitazone use among US adults.Research design and methodsWe conducted a cross-sectional analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2003-2016. We included people aged ≥18 years who had HbA1C>6.4%, fasting plasma glucose>125 mg/dL, or were told they had diabetes by a doctor. Suspected NAFLD was defined using hepatic steatosis index of>36. Pr...

Authors: Prucha J, Socha V, Hanakova L, Lalis A, Hana K Abstract The present study aimed to evaluate the characteristic influence of physical therapeutic procedures of vacuum-compression therapy (VCT) on microvascular perfusion (MiP) and macrovascular perfusion (MaP) of the lower limb in diabetic patients. A sample of nine patients with a medical history of type 2 diabetes was used for the purpose of this study. Most of the subjects' medical conditions included venous and neurological complications of the lower limb, whereas the rest of the subjects entered the treatment due to injury recovery or their phlebologica...

Conclusions Supporting the mechanisms of NO bioavailability via exogenous application of iNOS and L-arginine significantly attenuated I/R-induced alterations in a skin flap rat model. This pharmacologic preconditioning could be an easy and effective interventional strategy to uphold conversation of L-arginine to NO even on ischemic and type 1 diabetic conditions.

In this study, palmitic acid (PA, 0.8 mM for 24 h) induced the expression of miR-221 that bound to phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3K) mRNA to inhibit glucose uptake by HepG2 cells. Compared with controls, PA significantly decreased glucose uptake, increased insulin receptor substrate-2 (IRS-2) and miR-221 expression, and decreased phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K), protein kinase B (AKT), and glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4) mRNA expression. Luciferase reporter assay revealed that miR-221 binding inhibited PI3K expression. Transfection of HepG2 cells with an miR-221 mimic induced miR-221 expression and inhibi...
