We used purposive sampling to select 32 mentally alert community-dwelling adults, aged 60 years or older, diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and at least one other chronic health condition to participate in focus groups. Tomas Hajek, MD, PhD, of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, believes that this might in part be explained by the existence of comorbid conditions. The prevalence of diabetes in Korea is set to increase from its level of 3.3 million in 2010 to 4.3 million by 2030[2]. A cross-sectional survey was conducted using face-to-face interviews with patients with diabetes aged 18 years and over from four hospitals in northern Taiwan. Previous studies reported that stroke and ischemic heart disease, retinopathy, neuropathy and kidney disease have unfavorable effects on the QoL of diabetes patients [3, 23–25]. The usual-onset group showed significantly greater homeostasis model assessment insulin resistance than the elderly-onset group. The joint association of mental

BMC Medical Genetics

We have confirmed that a FGGRS is strongly associated with fasting glucose in a population based cohort and therefore may be used to determine the effect of glucose exposure on a phenotype of interest. Calpain 10 was the first type 2 diabetes susceptibility gene to be defined through linkage rather than a candidate gene route (18). However, given that cross-sectional studies may be confounded by other factors related with obesity and other phenotypes concurrently associated with T2D, our longitudinal study provides a higher evidence level for the contribution of the CLOCK gene to T2D incidence. Lifestyle changes and existing medicines slow the progression of the disease, but many patients are inadequately served by current treatments. Sequencing is underway at the Broad Institute using the Agilent v2 capture reagent on HiSeq machines. Type 2 diabetes is a condition that affects a body’s ability to use insulin properly. We have carried out a case–control study including 250 patients

Delta Dental | Heart Disease and Stroke: An Oral Health Link?

By Joanne Barker WebMD Feature Years ago, a physician who suspected heart disease would probably not refer the patient to a gum specialist. When a person has diabetes, they increase the risk of oral health problems. These conditions include gingivitis, periodontitis, and dental trauma, such as subluxation, oral cysts, and following wisdom tooth extraction. Leonard Hess sees the affects that diabetes can have on the teeth and gums and works with diabetic patients to improve both oral and overall health through better oral hygiene. Since the 20th century, numerous advances in research and technology have improved the status of oral health in America for most populations. Respiratory problems: Bacteria that grow in the oral cavity can travel to the lungs causing respiratory disease such as pneumonia – especially in people with gum disease. When used alone, alcohol and tobacco are risk factors for oral cancers, but when used in combination the effects of alcohol and tobacco are

Diabetes India – Diabetes

Neuropathy (nerve damage), is a common symptom of diabetes and can cause tingling and numbness in the feet. More specifically, diabetic neuropathy speaks to damage caused by the effects of diabetes. Her work has appeared in daily newspapers and national magazines, including “Wondertime,” and on websites such as Symptoms in diabetic polyneuropathy and other generalized neuropathies typically start in the hands or feet and climb towards the trunk. When tingling occurs in many different areas, there’s a good chance that it’s caused by diabetes. Herbalists and physicians alike sometimes recommend capsaicin — a chemical derived from hot peppers — to alleviate peripheral neuropathy symptoms. For example, if you’ve recently stopped using hormonal birth control, had a miscarriage or had a baby, hair loss is likely just the result of your body readjusting.
