Specialists in diabetes health teams are blocking access to diabetes technologies which could significantly improve people's lives. Dr Partha Kar, NHS England's National Specialty Advisor with a specific focus on type 1 diabetes and technology, has criticised the level variation of access to technology across the country. Speaking at a Westminster Health Forum on diabetes and technology, he said: "Pumps are a legal mandate. (UK) 10/16/2019 20:00
A new analysis has looked at the considerations of whether and when statins may offer benefit beyond harm. Within the UK, statins are the most commonly used drug. Over time, the number of people eligible for statin therapy has been widened through clinical guidelines. Within their analysis, the authors explain the importance of interpretation of research data about statins. They provide an example of two different people who might be prescribed statins to help explain how benefits of statins can widely vary between different individuals: "One is a 65 year old man who smokes, does not have heart disease, but who has high total cholesterol levels and raised blood pressure. The second is a 45 year old woman who does not smoke and has raised to. (UK) 10/15/2019 20:00
A new genetics approach is being developed to diagnose children with type 1 diabetes before they may need emergency treatment. A team from the University of Virginia is trying to demonstrate the value of genetic screening and how it could significantly reduce the number of young people who are hospitalised with the autoimmune condition. A significant number of children who develop type 1 diabetes require emergency care before they are diagnosed with the condition. (UK) 10/14/2019 20:00
A device that uses the eye to measure blood glucose levels is one step closer to being made available to the public after a patent has been awarded. Currently referred to as an optical glucometer, the pioneering product was developed by Prof Bill Baker after he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2003. The theoretical physicist, from Furmin University in South Carolina, quickly grew tired of finger-pricking tests and decided to apply his skills to finding a less invasive way of checking glucose levels. Prof Baker said: "I noticed that after I had a meal, my vision blurred. (UK) 10/13/2019 20:00
Singapore is set to be the first country to ban adverts of highly sugary drinks. Senior Minister of State for Law and Health, Edwin Tong, revealed plans to outlaw advertisements of sugary beverages across the city-state in print and broadcast, as well as online platforms. Singapore's Ministry of Health has a "war on diabetes" campaign which Mr Tong referred to in his speech. (UK) 10/10/2019 20:00
Australian researchers propose that the rotavirus infection could play a role in triggering the onset of type 1 diabetes. Rotavirus is a highly infectious stomach bug and a major cause of gastroenteritis, a condition that causes diarrhoea and vomiting. Vaccination programs in Australia have significantly decreased mortality rates as a result of rotavirus infection. (UK) 10/10/2019 20:00
Pregnant women who enjoy the odd alcoholic drink at a family party might increase the risk of their male babies developing type 2 diabetes later in life, according to researchers. While the effects are yet to be investigated in humans, researchers from the University of Queensland, have posed the question after carrying out a study in rats. Researcher Dr Lisa Akison said the study was based on a pattern of 'special occasion drinking', whereby pregnant women may indulge in a drink or two at a birthday party or family barbecue. During the testing, researchers discovered that minimal amounts of alcohol during pregnancy were associated with greater risk of male offspring developing insulin resistance. She said: "We only gave alcohol to the moth. (UK) 10/09/2019 20:00
Making a distinction between food outlets that provide healthy food and those that provide unhealthy food is one of the recommendations laid out in a childhood obesity report by England's Chief Medical Officer (CMO). The 'Time to Solve Childhood Obesity' report, published today, lays out 49 recommendations to consider which span regulation, marketing, the environment that children grow up in and the role of schools and nurseries. The report highlights the rising rates of overweight and obese children in England, as well as the increasing number of children developing type 2 diabetes. (UK) 10/09/2019 20:00
All pregnant women with type 1 diabetes are to be offered use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) from April 2020 to improve the health outcome of births. The drive to increase use of CGM for mothers to be with type 1 diabetes forms one of the key aims laid out within the National Pregnancy in Diabetes (NPID) Audit of 2018, which is published today. The audit is a report on a wide range of aspects of care for pregnant women with diabetes. (UK) 10/08/2019 20:00
Testing someone's tears could pave the way for screening for diabetes-related complications, researchers have said. A team from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney said that using samples of tears could help detect early peripheral nerve damage. Dr Maria Markoulli, senior author of the study, said: "We found that people with type 1 diabetic peripheral neuropathy – which can result in recurring ulcers of the feet and in severe cases require amputation – have reduced levels of a protein known as 'substance P' in their tear film. "119,000 Australians have type 1 diabetes. (UK) 10/07/2019 20:00
Swedish researchers have identified a 'sweet spot' window of HbA1c that is associated with lower risks of complications for people with type 1 diabetes. Research, carried out by a team from the universities of Gothenburg and Linköping, found that maintaining an HbA1c of between 48 and 52 mmol/mol (6.5% and 6.9%) was associated with reduced risks of developing diabetes complications. The researchers used data from the Swedish Diabetes Registry which included over 10,000 adults and children with type 1 diabetes. (UK) 10/07/2019 20:00
A revolutionary insulin pill may allow people with type 1 diabetes to avoid needing to take injections, according to researchers in the US. A specialist unit at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed a 3cm capsule which could carry similar levels of insulin as a standard injection. The results of the study suggest the pill is capable of reaching the small intestine intact, and that it can deliver insulin through the gut wall. Unlike many other medicines already available as pills, insulin is a protein and is broken down in the stomach before it can get to work. (UK) 10/03/2019 20:00
People who experience hypoglycemia during a hospital stay typically spend a longer time in hospital, new research has found. A review of 15 international studies has shown that people with diabetes who develop hypoglycemia while in hospital, end up staying for an average of 4.1 days more than those who did not experience low blood glucose levels. The study also showed that mortality rates were nearly double in people with diabetes who experienced hypoglycemia in hospital compared with those that did not. The research raises the question of whether preventing hypoglycemia may help to reduce the length of hospital stays and whether it could reduce mortality rates. Lead author Andrea Lake, a diabetes nurse specialist at Cambridge University Ho.
