10% Covid cases with diabetes die within 7 days of hospitalisation: Study

London: One in 10 Covid-19 patients who have diabetes dies within seven days of hospitalisation, a new study has claimed. The findings, published in the journal ‘Diabetologia’, show that two-third (65 per cent) of Covid-19 patients with diabetes admitted to hospitals are men, and the average age of the patients is 70 years. According to […]

Body can adapt to occasional short-term overeating, says study

New York: Overeating has been found to impair blood sugar (glucose) control and insulin levels but a new study suggests that the duration of a bout of overeating can affect how the body adapts to glucose and insulin processing when calorie intake increases. Obesity and type 2 diabetes have increased significantly worldwide within the past […]

Artificial pancreas to boost diabetes treatment

Sydney: Australian researchers have created the world’s first machine intelligent artificial pancreas that could improve insulin dosing for diabetics. According to Nigel Greenwood, founder at Australia-based firm Evolving Machine Intelligence, along with researchers from the University of Queensland (UQ), the artificial intelligence-based (AI) technique can also transform the way aeroplane engine’s wear & tear is […]

Novel pill could replace injections to deliver insulin: Study

Researchers have developed a drug capsule that could be used to deliver oral doses of insulin, potentially replacing injections for patients with Type-2 diabetes, says a new study. About the size of a blueberry, the capsule contains a single and small needle made of compressed insulin, which is injected after the capsule reaches the stomach. […]

98 mn Indians will have diabetes by 2030: Lancet

New York: While Type-2 diabetes is expected to rise by more than a fifth, from 406 million in 2018 to 511 million in 2030 globally, India along with China and the US will share over half of these high blood sugar cases, say researchers led by one of an Indian-origin, while asserting the need to […]

Gut bacteria can contribute to diabetes: Study

London: Gut bacteria has the ability to affect how cells respond to insulin and can thus contribute to Type-2 diabetes, says a new study. The study explored that the gut microbiota of people with treatment-naive Type-2 diabetes can be linked to a different metabolism of the amino acid histidine, which is mainly derived from the diet. […]

Insulin can help treat chronic bowel inflammation

London: Insulin, which plays a key role in managing blood sugar, also has potential against colitis — a chronic bowel inflammation, finds a study. The study, conducted on mice, showed that chronic bowel inflammation can be treated effectively by injecting insulin into the rectum. Insulin works because it activates a gene inside the bowel cells, […]

Losing just 6 hrs of sleep may up diabetes risk

Tokyo: Being deprived of sleep for just six hours or a single night may affect the liver’s ability to produce glucose and process insulin, increasing the risk of metabolic diseases such as fatty liver and Type-2 diabetes, warns a study. Sleep deprivation has been associated with eating more, moving less and having a higher risk […]

Lifestyle changes one needs to make to avoid diabetes

New Delhi: Diabetes is a chronic disease which has become very common nowadays. While lack of insulin and genetic history are among the factors, certain lifestyle habits such as poor diet, lack of exercise and high stress also contribute to an increase in blood sugar levels. Taking a few steps towards a healthy life can […]

This pill could end daily insulin jabs for diabetics

New York: Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have developed a ‘holy grail’ of insulin in a pill that could help diabetics keep their blood sugar levels in check. For up to 40 million people with Type-1 diabetes worldwide, a painful needle prick once or twice daily is necessary for delivering the insulin that their bodies […]

Australian researchers develop diabetes drug to replace insulin injections

Canberra: Diabetes sufferers might soon be able to take pills to treat their condition, rather than inject themselves with insulin, a research by Australian scientists said on Friday. Research led by the University of Adelaide is testing safer and more effective drugs to treat type-2 diabetes which will reduce side-effects and insulin injections, Xinhua news […]

How stem cells get their identity

London: Scientists from the University of Copenhagen have identified a mechanism that explains how some stem cells become organs such as liver and pancreas. The findings could lead scientists to generate insulin-producing cells in the laboratory to use as a therapy for Type-1 diabetes. Scientists led by Henrik Semb from the DanStem Center at the […]

Brain ages faster in people with Type-1 diabetes

New York: Type-1 diabetes may accelerate brain ageing, resulting in slower information processing even at at an younger age, says a new research. The findings indicate that clinicians should consider screening middle-aged patients with Type-1 diabetes for cognitive difficulties. “The severity of cognitive complications and cerebral small vessel disease which can starve the brain of […]
