Sex Hormone Binding Globulin could predict Diabetes

June 10, 2019 Category :Diabetes Research 0

People with low blood levels of a protein that regulates sex hormones were found to be more at risk for developing diabetes. In a recent study, researchers found that both men and women with low level of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) were ten times more likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes compared to those with high levels of SHBG. Headed by Dr. Simin Liu of the University of California Los Angeles, the team neutralized other predictors such as weight, smoking status, exercise, and high blood pressure and found that SHBG has a genetic component that carries two single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP). These SNPs are effective predictors of the lowered and heightened risk of developing diabetes.

Infectious Emergencies in Patients With Diabetes

May 28, 2019 Category :Diabetes Research| Healthy Advocacy 0

Aside from the severe increases in blood sugar, development of infections among people with diabetes is the most common cause of consultation in the emergency room. Patients with diabetes are particularly predisposed to infections. A study showed that people with diabetes are 200 times more likely to be hospitalized for infectious disease and are 90 times more likely to die from infection. This increased risk of dying from infections may be mediated by diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
