It has been reported that obesity and serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) are important risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD). For this purpose a total of 18 patients were allowed to incorporate to their habitual diets 120 g/day of bread containing 2% (wt/wt) chitosan (chitosan group, n= 9) or standard bread (control group, n= 9). The researchers, from UCL and the University of Oxford, used large data sets of genetic information to investigate the possible effects of two types of cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and a form of dietary fat known as triglycerides, on a person’s risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. Researchers claim, cutting the intake of sugar can reduce the cases of obesity related cancers, such as bowel, endometrial and post-menopausal breast cancer; as well as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Lovastatin therapy also reduced plasma triglycerides and
Menstrual irregularities are more common in adolescents with type 1 diabetes: association with poor glycaemic
Biotin is one of 13 vitamins that make up the B complex. The micro- and macro-vascular complications of diabetes contribute to its morbidity and mortality. Biotin is a B vitamin that is synthesized by bacteria that live in our digestive tracts. Once the horse where given biotin, veterinarians saw not only an improvement with the horses hoofs, but also the horses hair and soft hide. Biotin is a soluble vitamin that is found in the normal diet that we take. On the other hand, high-dose biotin suppresses hepatocyte transcription of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, the rate-limiting enzyme for gluconeogenesis. Biotin is needed to maintain healthy hair, nails, skin, sweat glands, nerves, bone marrow, and normal bone growth.
In a randomized trial of patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 who were taking oral antihyperglycemic agents but had suboptimal glycemic control, treatment with chromium (as chromium picolinate) and biotin resulted in a statistically significant reduction of the area
**This offer is void where prohibited by law. The body does not respond well to these higher levels of sugar in the blood and diabetes has many unpleasant side-effects. Most manufacturers are willing to give away blood glucose testing meters with the expectation that you will continue to buy their brand of test strips, and many have discounts or assistance programs available to help you save on the test strips as well. An erroneously low glucose reading could spur patients to misdose themselves, the agency said, increasing risks of hyperglycemia, which can be fatal. I want to thank TotalDiabetesSupply.com for supplying me with the FreeStyle Lite meter and strips, to use in this review. We give FreeStyle Libre an emphatic thumbs up and would recommend it to nearly anyone with diabetes, especially those on insulin who test their blood glucose frequently and want more actionable information than fingersticks alone can provide. The other difference is that the US version of the meter
Diabetic Foot Syndrome (DFS) is the most costly and devastating complication of diabetes mellitus (DM), which early effective assessment can reduce the severity of complications including ulceration and amputations. It is a major cause of disability, morbidity and mortality among diabetic patients and about 15% develop foot ulcers in their lifetime. In this review article, we searched for articles published between March 1, 1980 and July 28, 2015 in PubMed, Science Direct, Embase, Web of Science, and Scopus, for both English and non-English language articles with the following keywords: “Diabetic foot syndrome”, “Ulceration”, “Amputation”, “Foot assessment”, “Skin disorders” and “Musculoskeletal deformities”. Then, to assess of the system’s ability to identify key clinically relevant features, we had two clinicians evaluate 20 different wounds at two centers, recording observations on a standardized form. Clinicians should routinely examine
