November 19, 2018 Category :Diabetes Research 0

Diabetes mellitus is a common cause of health problems and death, not only in the Philippines but in the whole world. In diabetes, insulin is lacking, either partly or completely, leading to gross defects in glucose (sugar), fat, and protein metabolism. Because of these defects, the organs that are most commonly affected include the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes, and the skin. A fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dL and above on two separate occasions or a random value of 200 mg/dL and above confirms the diagnosis of diabetes.

February 9, 2018 Category :Diabetes Research 0

A seven-month trial conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said that parents, more than their type 1 diabetic children, have a hard time recognizing warming signs of hypoglycemia or extremely low blood sugar levels.

Researchers found that parents missed their children’s moderate hypoglycemia 54% of the time, while children missed 41% of these episodes.

In the study, the researchers asked 61 children, aged 6 to 11, and their parents to rate hypoglycemia symtoms, estimate the child’s blood sugar level, and measure it using a survey programmed on a personal digital assistant. Study participants completed 70 of these tests over a month, then reported cases of severe hypoglycemia for the next six months. » Continue Reading

April 4, 2014 Category :Diabetes Research 0

Nano Tattoo is a special tattoo created for diabetics patients designed to eradicate the need to regularly check blood sugar levels by pricking fingers and getting blood samples. Instead of getting blood samples to check blood sugar, the nano tattoos which are actually invisible will appear or shine to signal high blood sugar levels of the person. However, one needs an ultraviolet light to make the tattoo visible or to check if the one has high blood sugar. At the moment, there are devices or gadgets that a diabetic person with a nano tattoo should constantly wear, which will provide the ultra violet. However, there are also studies if the same can be provided by a converted IPhone. However, this is still unavailable because researchers are still working on the program which can help do the evaluation.

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.
