Insulin and Diabetes

December 29, 2021 Category :Diabetes Facts 0

“Does using insulin mean that your diabetes is at its worst?”

Not necessarily. This just means that your doctor feels that insulin is the better treatment for you at this time. If you are a type 1 diabetic, you will need insulin from the very start of your treatment to bring down the blood sugar. Because you don’t make your own natural insulin hormone, you will still need to continue injecting insulin even when the blood sugars are already in the normal range. » Continue Reading

Hypoglycemia Episodes Often Missed by Parents

September 26, 2021 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
