Type 2 Diabetes – Can Controlling Blood Sugar Levels Control Necrobiosis Lipoidica?

Necrobiosis lipoidica is sometimes referred to as necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum because it was first discovered in people who had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and is often seen with the condition. Collagen, connective tissue, is replaced with immune cells, fat cells, and thickened blood vessels, to make what is called a granuloma. Granulomas are used to wall off infection, inflammation, or anything else the body perceives as undesirable. Gradually granulomas take on calcium and become as hard as bone.

Type 2 Diabetes – Liver Cell Cancer Is A Disease For Diabetics To Watch Out For

Having Type 2 diabetes raises the risk of developing several types of disease. According to radiologists at the University of Montreal in Canada, Stanford University in Palo Alto, United States of America, and University of California at San Diego, USA, liver cancer is one disease to watch out for. In June of 2017, the medical journal Abdominal Radiology, the radiologists (physicians specializing in x-rays) listed a number of risk factors for developing liver cancer…

Type 2 Diabetes – Eating Healthily Is the Key to Living Well With Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a predictable disease and it is not difficult to pinpoint its development. Its causes are well understood, meaning no one develops this form of diabetes for no apparent reason. This is not the case for the less common form of diabetes – Type 1, where despite theories suggesting a genetic component, its causes are not fully understood.

Type 2 Diabetes – Vitamin D Levels Are Linked to the Health of Blood Vessels

Heart and blood vessel disease is probably the most worrisome complication of Type 2 diabetes. In May of 2017, the online journal PLOS ONE reported on a study showing vitamin D is essential for forming new cells to line the inside of the vessels transporting blood throughout the entire body. Scientists at Tel Aviv University and several other research facilities in Israel recruited fifty-one people who had been previously diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The scientists removed from the participants, bone marrow cells destined to grow and develop into cells that would line the inside of blood vessels and produced them either with or without vitamin D. One week later the cells grown with vitamin D were healthier and better developed than those grown without the vitamin.

Type 2 Diabetes – Do You Take Care of Your Body?

It is a travesty, so many people neglect their health and well-being because caring is inconvenient. Managing one’s health requires work and attention, the same effort often given to other areas of a person’s life.

Most people do not, and this is one reason why preventable diseases like Type 2 diabetes and obesity are rampant in our society.

Type 2 Diabetes – Medical Nutrition Therapy Helps With Newborn Birth Weight in Gestational Diabetes

In May of 2017, the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics reported medical nutrition therapy was found to be helpful in keeping newborns from becoming overweight in cases where their mother was diagnosed with Gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is the kind diagnosed for the first time during pregnancy. It affects about 7 percent of pregnancies – a fetus receiving high levels of sugar can store it as fat, just as in adults. Overweight children often become obese adults and are then at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Mothers of overweight newborns are at risk of needing c-sections. Scientists at Herning Hospital in Herning, Denmark, found the longer the mother diagnosed with Gestational diabetes followed their prescribed healthy diet, the lower the birthweight of their baby.

Type 2 Diabetes – Type 1.5 or Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA)

What we once knew about diabetes seems much simpler than it has turned out to be.Type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes occurred in children and was caused by antibodies destroying the beta cells, the ones that make insulin in the pancreas. Type 2, or mature-onset, diabetes took place in adults usually over the age of 50. This form of diabetes was caused by insulin resistance, often brought on by being overweight or obese along with leading a sedentary lifestyle. Then we learned children could also acquire Type 2 diabetes, and “juvenile-onset” was dropped from Type 1. Type 3, or Gestational, diabetes was found to take place in pregnancy and acted like a temporary form of Type 2 diabetes, which was usually “cured” by the birth of the pregnant mother’s infant.nNow the fourth form of diabetes, dubbed Type 1.5, has been found.

Type 2 Diabetes – Living Well With Your Diabetes

Various kinds of antidiabetic medications work by different means and have varying effects on the body as a whole. As research into such effects progress, we learn more about how to tailor the best drug regimen for each person. In June of 2017, the New England Journal of Medicine reported on a study of canagliflozin (Ivokana), a member of the gliflozin family, and what other effects it might have besides the already known ones.
