Patients with diabetes face daily challenges in managing their blood glucose levels, and it has been postulated that patients could benefit from a system providing continuous real-time glucose readings. Today, The Endocrine Society released a clinical practice guideline (CPG) providing recommendations on settings where patients are most likely to benefit from continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). The most common way to self-check blood glucose levels is to prick the skin to get a drop of...

Research provides the prospect of effective drug treatments for the genetic disorder Cambridge scientists have identified the cause of a rare, life-threatening form of hypoglycemia. Their findings, which have the potential to lead to pharmaceutical treatments for the disorder, were published today, 07 October, in the journal Science. Hypoglycemia, usually characterized by too much insulin which results in too little sugar in the bloodstream, is fairly common, often affecting diabetic...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- People with type 2 diabetes who intensively lower their blood sugar are not preventing cognitive decline, according to new research. Individuals with type 2 diabetes who are older than age 70 are twice as likely to develop cognitive impairment that is linked to their disease than those without diabetes. A team of researchers studied nearly 3,000 patients aged 55 years who had type 2 diabetes and were at risk for cardiovascular disease. These individuals also had...

Researchers at the John G. Rangos Sr. Research Center at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have identified a powerful molecular pathway that regulates the liver's management of insulin and new glucose production, which could lead to new therapies for diabetes. The findings were published online this week in Diabetes, a journal of the American Diabetes Association. Usually, the liver stores excess blood sugar as glycogen, which it...

Surgeons from Boston Medical Center (BMC) have found that in diabetic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, aggressive glycemic control does not result in any significant improvement of clinical outcomes as compared with moderate control. The findings, which appear in this month's issue of Annals of Surgery, also found the incidence of hypoglycemic events increased with aggressive glycemic control. Currently, 40 percent of all patients undergoing CABG suffer from...

Insulin, a hormone, is used to regulate carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. Insulin causes cells to take up glucose from the blood and store it as glycogen in the liver and muscle. This hormone stops the body from using fat as an energy source by inhibiting the release of glucagons. Without insulin the body fails to take glucose into the bodies cells and in turns uses fat as an energy source. It also has several other anabolic effects throughout the body. Diabetes mellitus results...
