HIIT exercise will reduce your diabetes risk

Daily Mail (UK) - 17/08/2017
High intensity interval training (HIIT) combats high insulin resistance, a Spanish study found. Women at risk for diabetes showed lower glucose levels after a 10-week course.

Study stresses importance of diabetes transition from adolescent to adult care

Diabetes UK - 17/08/2017
A Canadian study has highlighted the importance of improving the transition from pediatric to adult diabetes care in adolescents with type 1 diabetes. Scientists from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) found "huge gaps" in transition care practices, which can impact adolescent self-management and subsequent attendance at follow-up visits. "The transition from pediatric to adult care is a huge and complex process that is not unique to type 1 diabetes," said lead author Dr. Meranda Nakhla.

HIIT fights insulin resistance in women at risk of type 2 diabetes

Diabetes UK - 17/08/2017
Short bursts of exercise could help high-risk women from developing type 2 diabetes by lowering insulin resistance, according to new research. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise programmes use a combination of episodes of intense anaerobic exercise and recovery periods to provide a time-efficient way of becoming physically fit. Spanish researchers have now found that HIIT was able to improve insulin resistance, an indicator for type 2 diabetes, in 40 women at risk of the condition, and improve heart health. Their findings were published in the journal Frontiers in Physiology.

HIIT helps combat high insulin resistance -- a warning sign for diabetes

Science Daily (US) - 16/08/2017
Patients at risk for type 2 diabetes are often asked to exercise, but exercise doesn't help each patient equally. To investigate this variability, a sample of women were divided by their levels of insulin resistance (lower/ higher), a warning sign for diabetes, all underwent high-intensity interval training. The training generally improved all metrics of cardiometabolic health tested. Women with higher insulin resistance more often saw improvements in the measures of glucose and insulin in their blood.

Shorter sleep duration in childhood linked to higher risk of type 2 diabetes

News Medical (Australia) - 16/08/2017
A study has found that children who slept on average one hour less a night had higher risk factors for type 2 diabetes, including higher levels of blood glucose and insulin resistance.

Poor sleep in children linked to development of diabetes later in life

News Medical (Australia) - 16/08/2017
A latest UK study has found that deficiency of adequate sleep in children could be linked to their risk of developing diabetes later in life. The study notes that every extra hour of sleep a child gets per night is associated with a lower body weight and increased lean muscle mass and less blood sugar. The study is published this week in the journal Pediatrics.

Blood sugar and HbA1c variations linked with Alzheimers in type 2 diabetes

Diabetes UK - 16/08/2017
Variations in blood sugar levels and HbA1c are independently associated with Alzheimer's disease in people with type 2 diabetes, research suggests. The findings indicate there is a pathophysiological mechanism regarding blood sugar variation and Alzheimer's, and therapies that ease this variation could lower the risk of Alzheimer's disease in those with existing type 2 diabetes. Researchers from China Medical University in Taiwan say "further investigation is required" regarding their findings, but note this discovery could signal a "valuable therapeutic target". Before the study, the relation

Diabetes Forum welcomes its 250,000th member

Diabetes UK - 16/08/2017
The Diabetes Forum on Diabetes.co.uk has welcomed its 250,000th member. The forum has been active since 2006 and has been steadily growing, attracting new members all of the time. Whilst the look of the forum has changed over time, and new features have been introduced, the ethos has very much continued in the same vein. The forum is all about you. It's all about people who live with and care about diabetes. It's about enabling people to understand things and help others at the same time. The diabetes community has achieved wonderful things.

Reduction in depression symptoms associated with improved HbA1c in type 2 diabetes

Diabetes UK - 16/08/2017
People with type 2 diabetes who experience reduced depressive symptoms improve their HbA1c more compared to those who don't experience these reductions, research suggests. These reductions in depressive symptoms also helped people with type 2 diabetes to achieve their targets for glycemic control.

Kids who don't sleep enough more likely to get diabetes

Daily Mail (UK) - 15/08/2017
Each extra hour of sleep kids get at night is linked to a lower body weight, more lean muscle mass and less accumulation of sugars, researchers at the University of London report in Pediatrics.

Children who sleep an hour less at higher risk of type 2 diabetes, says study

Science Daily (US) - 15/08/2017
A study has found that children who slept on average one hour less a night had higher risk factors for type 2 diabetes, including higher levels of blood glucose and insulin resistance.

Less Sleep Tied to Diabetes Risk in Children

New York Times - 15/08/2017
The fewer hours of sleep a child got, the greater the risk of a higher B.M.I. and insulin resistance.

Liver inflammation discovery could explain vascular complications risk in diabetes

Diabetes UK - 15/08/2017
German researchers have unlocked a previously unknown mechanism as to why people with diabetes have a higher risk of long-term complications. Scientists have identified inflammatory processes in the liver which increase cholesterol in people with diabetes.

Researchers get under the skin of treating type 1 diabetes

Diabetes UK - 15/08/2017
The space under human skin has been identified as an 'optimal location' for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. Researchers from the University of Toronto's Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) have worked on transplanting healthy pancreatic cells under human skin, helping to generate insulin and regulate blood glucose levels. Senior researcher on the project Michael Sefton said: "The skin has the advantage of being readily accessible.

Study explores role of sleep in children and risk of type 2 diabetes

Diabetes UK - 15/08/2017
Children who sleep for an extra hour during the week reduce their chances of developing type 2 diabetes, according to new research. Children who had an additional 60 minutes of sleep on school nights had lower levels of two key indicators used to measure type 2 diabetes risk. However, these findings were not causational, merely associative.

The best place to treat type 1 diabetes might be just under your skin

Science Daily (US) - 14/08/2017
The space under our skin might be an optimal location to treat type 1 diabetes (T1D), a group of researchers has demonstrated.

Study: Liver inflammation increases cholesterol levels in people with diabetes

News Medical (Australia) - 14/08/2017
Inflammatory processes in the liver lead to elevated cholesterol levels in people with diabetes, thus promoting subsequent vascular diseases. This is the result of a study by scientists of Helmholtz Zentrum München, Technische Universität München and the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1118 at Heidelberg University Hospital.

Long-term diabetes complication: Liver inflammation raises cholesterol levels
