Eating less often and earlier in the day promotes a healthy BMI, new study finds

A new study on meal frequency and timing has revisited the widely held opinion that eating more frequently is better for weight control than eating larger meals less frequently. The Adventist Health Study 2 (AHS-2), conducted among American and Canadian Seventh-day Adventists, did not found this. Secondly, it showed that having larger meals later in the day is not effective at reducing Body Mass Indext (BMI). Both excessive energy intake and a higher BMI can increase the risk for obesity-associa...

Hospitals urged to improve care for pregnant women with diabetes

New guidelines have been issued for hospital doctors who treat pregnant women with diabetes. The new Joint British Diabetes Societies for Inpatient Care (JBDS–IP) document has been drawn up in a bid to improve the standard of care for people with diabetes in secondary care. Many women with diabetes require hospital admissions during their pregnancy, but not all doctors and healthcare teams in maternity wards are experts in the best way to treat diabetes. It is especially important that wome...

Continuous glucose monitoring benefits those with type 2 diabetes on insulin

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has been shown to significantly benefit people with type 2 diabetes who use multiple daily insulin injections (MDI), according to new research. The DIaMonD study (Multiple Daily Injections and Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Diabetes) focused on the potential benefits of CGM treating in type 2 diabetes because previous research has often focused on type 1 diabetes. Scientists from the Jaeb Center for Health Research in Florida recruited 158 people with type 2...

New tool predicts hospitalisation for severe hypoglycemia in type 2 diabetes

A new tool has been developed for identifying people with diabetes who are at greatest risk of hospital admittance due to severe hypoglycemia. Scientists at Kaiser Permanente, Northern California, developed a hypoglycemia risk stratification tool which can predict someones 12-month risk of blood sugar-related hospital treatment. They did this by identifying 156 possible risk factors for hypoglycemia and collecting data from more than 200,000 people with type 2 diabetes. The final model was base...

Cells from gallbladder reprogrammed to produce insulin

Human gallbladder cells have been reengineered to produce insulin by American scientists. The reprogrammed cells behaved similarly to beta cells in a laboratory experiment where researchers were able to create insulin in response to rising blood glucose levels. The technique could offer a future alternative to islet call transplants, where immunosuppressant drugs are required afterwards. However, there are many hurdles that first need to be overcome. One of these is the short lifespan of the ce...

NAFLD could increase risk of damage to other organs

German scientists have demonstrated how non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) may increase the risk of damage to other organs. Having NAFLD is already known to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, chronic liver diseases and cardiovascular diseases. Fatty deposits in the organ appear to affect secretions of liver, resulting in more glucose and unfavourable fats produced. However, it has been unclear which other organs are most affected by NAFLD and what damage this can cause. To find a solut...
