FRIDAY, March 11, 2016 (HealthDay News) — People with diabetes may be significantly more likely to develop potentially deadly “staph” blood infections than those without diabetes, a new study suggests. Less commonly, a puncture wound, drug injection, or surgery in or near a joint can give the germs entry into the joint space. About 5 percent of diabetes is type 1, where the body has lost its ability to produce insulin, the hormone that converts blood sugar to energy for cells. In addition, the oils gave the rats enhanced sensitivity to insulin, which meant less insulin was required to keep glucose levels stable. Late last year, research groups in Japan, Europe and the United States discovered that Hyper IgE Syndrome is caused by a mutation in the Stat3 gene. Adults tend to notice joint pain in their arms, legs, and particularly the knees. The infection had almost 2 months to incubate and spread before anybody caught it.
