Many Diabetic Teens at Risk for Complications

Many young teens with type 1 diabetes are at an increased risk for cardiovascular and diabetes-related complications because they do not follow recommended nutritional guidelines for carbohydrate, fat, and fiber intake. Current recommendations for patients with type 1 diabetes suggest taking 50% to 55% of calories from carbohydrates, 15% to 20% from protein, 30% to 35% from fat, and less than 7% saturated fat. Randi Streisand, PhD, reported in a poster session at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Endocrine Society that in half of 257 children with type 1 diabetes they studied, the daily consumption of bad (LDL) cholesterol […]

Sugary foods and drinks have been found to raise the prevalence of diabetes worldwide, according to a study recently published online in PLoS ONE.  Researchers cited some countries such as Bangladesh, France, Georgia, Philippines and Romania, where diabetes is prevalent despite low obesity rates, which therefore led them to suggest that diabetes may be mainly driven by excessive sugar intake. Most of the worldwide rise has been thought to be type 2 diabetes linked to the metabolic syndrome (a group of risk factors), which includes high blood cholesterol level, high blood pressure and insulin resistance. Researchers reported that for every […]

Sit Less to Reduce Diabetes Risk

A new study published in Diabetologia suggests that patients with known risk factors for type 2 diabetes could benefit more from reducing sedentary time (like reducing sitting time by one and half hours) than simply exercising regularly. Patients at risk are presently advised to engage in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) for a minimum of 2.5 hours per week.  However, the study led by Joseph Henson, suggests that patients should in fact be advised to lessen inactivity or lying down or sitting time. Patients were analyzed from two studies: Project STAND (Sedentary Time and Diabetes), a study that involved about 150 […]

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that gestational diabetes affects up to 10% of pregnant women in the US. This condition is characterized by increased blood sugar levels during pregnancy, which may be undiagnosed and untreated, resulting in complications for both the mother and the baby. Women who have a family history of diabetes or who are obese or overweight have an increased risk for gestational diabetes. A small pilot study conducted by Dr. Rosario D’Anna of the Department of Obstetrics at University Hospital in Messina, Italy, showed that supplementation with myo-inositol could reduce women’s risk for […]
