ETH Zurich ETH Zurich researchers from the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) in Basel have developed an implantable device that precisely monitors acid build-up in the body for people with diabetes and produces insulin if acidosis becomes a risk. Many human metabolic functions only run smoothly if the acid level in the body remains neutral and stable. For humans, normal blood pH values lie between 7.35 and 7.45. By way of comparison, an empty stomach is extremely...

Scientists are reporting development and successful testing of a sensor that can instantly tell whether someone has Type I diabetes. It could also be used by emergency room doctors to determine whether a patient has developed diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially serious complication that happens when diabetics do not take enough insulin. Someday the technology may also be used by diabetics, in their own homes, to determine whether they need more insulin. A report on the sensor appears in ACS'...

The report...

LONDON (Reuters) - Low carbohydrate, high protein diets may help to shed weight quickly but researchers warned on Friday that they can be unhealthy. The diets can cause constipation, diarrhea, headache, bad breath and ketosis, which causes raised levels of ketones, or acids, in the body. "Low-carbohydrate diets for weight management are far from healthy," said Lyn Steffen and Jennifer Nettleton, of the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in Minneapolis, writing in the...

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - When children with diabetes don't get enough insulin, impurities can build up rapidly in the body and cause a medical emergency. However, diabetic ketoacidosis, as the condition is called, can be treated effectively and relatively simply with a fast-acting insulin analog injected subcutaneously, a new study shows. The current standard of treatment for diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA, is continuous intravenous administration of insulin, which may require...
