Timely insulin therapy to treat type 2 diabetes

Timely insulin therapy to treat type 2 diabetes

Diabetes is a tricky condition to treat. While insulin can efficiently lower blood sugar levels and protect pancreatic ꞵ-cells, it can also cause harmful side effects such as hypoglycaemia and weight gain. Severe hypoglycaemia may trigger arrhythmias and cardiovascular events. Professor Markolf Hanefeld suggests that an individualised approach to start timely insulin therapy on the basis of risk/benefit balance is […]

Flexibility is key in treating children with type 1 diabetes

Blood vessels

People with type 1 diabetes cannot produce their own insulin, leading to uncontrolled blood sugar levels. To survive, they must receive insulin treatment. A recently developed, long-lasting insulin called degludec offers a unique level of flexibility. This means that it is particularly suitable for treating children and young people with type 1 diabetes. Dr Nandu Thalange, an expert in childhood diabetes […]

Diabetes treatment: Could carbonates be an alternative?

Diabetes testing

Diabetes affects millions of adults worldwide and is still a disease without a cure. While injections of insulin can help manage symptoms, there are currently no therapies to treat the underlying cause of diabetes. However, Dr Kenji Sorimachi has found that perhaps the answer lies in the form of carbonate complexes that show an ability to metabolise carbohydrates into glucose […]

Nuts about nuts: The Mediterranean solution to diabetes control

Professor David Jenkins and his team at The University of Toronto investigate the impacts of exchanging carbohydrates for mixed nuts – a source of unsaturated fats – on critical risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as low-density lipoprotein particle size and apolipoprotein B levels. They also discern that adopting a lower-carb, high-fat diet, reminiscent of the Mediterranean diet, increases glycaemic […]

Could stem cells offer a viable treatment for retinopathy?

BetaStem Therapeutics research outreach

Diabetes is a growing global epidemic, with over 400 million affected and cases expected to double in the next 10 years. Retinopathy, or damage to the blood vessels in the retina, occurs in most patients with type 1 diabetes and 75 per cent of patients with type 2 diabetes, leading to vision loss for many. BetaStem Therapeutics is a stem […]
