Fasting Lowers Cholesterol in Prediabetes Patients
Fasting Lowers Cholesterol in Prediabetes Patients
A 24-hour, water-only fast once weekly is being investigated as an intervention in patients who have prediabetes and metabolic syndrome, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association, held from June 13 to 17 in San Francisco.
Transplantation of Human Islet Cells Safe and Effective in Type 1 Diabetes
Phase III trial shows that transplanted purified human pancreatic islets safely restored sustained near-normoglycemia and provided protection from severe hypoglycemia in patients with long-standing type 1 diabetes and iatrogenic hypoglycemia.
Swedish Study Indicates LDL Cholesterol Not a Good Marker of Cardiovascular Risk in Type 1 Diabetes
Researchers find that the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL is a significant predictor for CVD in type 1 diabetes patients who are not using lipid-lowering drugs, and that the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL is a more reliable marker for risk when considering primary prevention.
Inhibition of SGLT2 in Pancreatic Alpha Cells Drives Glucagon Gene Expression
Researchers have identified a previously unrecognized mechanism for SGLT2 inhibitors in the regulation of glucagon and gluconeogenic gene expression.
Depressive Symptoms Predict Increased Mortality Rates in Both Men and Women with Type 1 Diabetes
Patients with type 1 diabetes who had more depressive symptoms measured at baseline and over time appear to be at an increased risk of mortality, even after allowing for likely mediators.
Prediabetes Intervention Cuts Cardiovascular Risk
Treatment of prediabetes and restoration of normal glucose regulation reduces cardiovascular risk, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association, held from June 13 to 17 in San Francisco.
New Instrument Validated for Diabetes Distress
A new instrument can assess diabetes distress that is linked to clinical outcome in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D). In addition, depressive symptoms are associated with mortality risk in T1D. These finding were presented at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association, held from June 13 to 17 in San Francisco.
