Role for fibrate therapy in diabetes: evidence before FIELD. – PubMed

Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by elevated levels of glucose in the plasma. Our aim was to study glucose, lipid, and aminoacid metabolism during glucose clamping at multiple levels of insulin in 10 normal (N) and 6 IDDM patients. A distinction is made between type 1 and type 2 diabetes, which do not have the same cause, but can result in the same complications. Beta cells, which are found in the pancreas within tiny cell clusters called islets, are the body’s sole source of the essential hormone insulin. Also called non-insulin-dependent diabetes, non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Fasting and postprandial glycemia, fructosamine and serum insulin levels were assessed. Thus far, the only study performed specifically in patients with type 2 diabetes is the angiographic Diabetes Atherosclerosis Intervention Study which demonstrated a significant reduction in progression of atherosclerosis in patients receiving fenofibrate, but it was not powered to

In more basic terms, diabetes is when the human body cannot properly create or store blood sugar. An additional 57 million are at risk for developing the disease. In 2013, a vial of insulin cost up to KES1,800 (£11) – today, that cost has been reduced to a more affordable KES500 (£3) through supply chain optimisation. I push it away in fear of possibly making the situation worse or because I feel virtually powerless to help. The net proceeds will fund diabetic retinopathy education programs, help those individuals who need unforeseen emergency relief to obtain needed diabetic supplies on a temporary basis; and provide needs-based scholarships to help children attend Camp Leo, a camp for children with Type1 diabetes. The programme is carried out using a comprehensive blended learning  resource pack which can
