Fasting changes brain chemistry to improve memory and learning, research suggests

Fasting can boost brain function by increasing levels of a protein that promotes neuron growth, new research has revealed. The findings have implications for the prevention and treatment of age-related neurodegenerative disorders that are associated with type 2 diabetes, like Alzheimers disease. Mark Mattson, a neuroscientist at the National Institute on Aging, led new research that compared brain activity and neurochemistry in mice placed on an every-other-day diet or eating normally. Mattson h...

Immune system could be used to regulate insulin in type 2 diabetes

The immune system could help regulate insulin in type 2 diabetes, according to new research from Switzerland. Scientists from the University of Basel report that triggering immune cells located in the pancreas could help prevent insulin production from failing in people with type 2 diabetes. In a study of overweight people with type 2 diabetes, the researchers identified a feedback mechanism in the pancreas which had a positive influence on insulin secretion. The impact of a protein called inte...

GLP-1 agonists improve heart health in type 2 diabetes, review shows

The diabetes drug class glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists have positive heart health outcomes without major safety concerns, research shows. University of Oxford scientists conducted a meta-analysis of the GLP-1 agonists Lyxumia (lixisenatide), Victoza (liraglutide), Ozempic (semaglutide), and Bydureon (extended-release exenatide), to assess their impact on heart health. The type 2 diabetes drugs are all designed to help lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin and suppr...

Predictive suspend before low pump reduces hypos in youths with type 1 diabetes

An insulin pump with a predictive low blood glucose suspend feature has led to a marked reduction in hypos among children and teens with type 1 diabetes. The suspend before low technology the insulin pump is equipped with consists of a built-in algorithm that automatically suspends insulin delivery if blood glucose levels are predicted to fall. This type of algorithm has proven effective at safely preventing nocturnal hypoglycemia in previous short-term research within the hospital setting. Long...
