Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) and Hormone Health
Endocrine disrupting chemicals, or EDCs, are chemicals that act the same as, block, or change the way that natural hormones act in the body. Learn more about EDCs and how you can avoid exposure to these chemicals.
t:flex™ Large Capacity Insulin Pump for Diabetes is Available
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the t:flex™ insulin pump for marketing. The pump, manufactured by Tandem Diabetes Care, can store the largest amount of insulin (480 units) of any pump available in the United States.
Depression, Anxiety, and Eating Disorders Are Common in Teens and Young Adults with Type 1 Diabetes
Managing type 1 diabetes during the teenage years is challenging. Physical changes, social pressures, and stress can make it harder for teenagers and young adults to control their blood sugar levels.
Artificial Pancreas Is Being Tested for Overnight Use in Type 1 Diabetes
A big challenge for people with type 1 diabetes is managing blood sugar (or glucose) levels when they are asleep. Dips in blood sugar levels overnight may go unrecognized and can lead to serious consequences, including seizures and coma or, in rare cases, death.
Early Intensive Blood Sugar Control Lengthens Life in People with Type 1 Diabetes
Closely controlling blood sugar levels early in the treatment of type 1 diabetes was linked to a lower risk of death later in life, according to findings from a study that followed people with type 1 diabetes for approximately 27 years. The findings were published in the January 6 issue of JAMA.
What is Insulin?
Important hormone allows your body to use sugar (glucose)
Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps keeps your blood sugar level from getting too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia).
Researchers identify molecular pathway that may become target of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes medications
There are many causes of both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Now, a team of researchers from Stanford University may have found a common treatment for both disorders.
New guidelines suggest continuous glucose monitoring may be beneficial to type 1 diabetics
Continuous glucose monitoring technology has come a long way in recent years and thanks to this progress the Endocrine Society is now saying that it can be a useful tool for managing blood sugar levels in certain individuals with type 1 diabetes.
More screen time associated with poorer glucose regulation in type 1 diabetics
Type 1 diabetics who get more screen time each day may have poorer blood sugar regulation than those who spend less time in front of the TV and computer, according to a new study from a team of German researchers.
Asthma linked to poorer blood sugar management in children with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes
Children who suffer from asthma and type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes may be more likely to have poorly regulated blood sugar levels, according to a new study.
Researchers find way to regrow insulin-producing beta cells
A team of researchers may have identified a molecule present in the body that stimulates the production of insulin-producing beta cells, which are lacking in individuals with type 1 diabetes, as well as developed a compound that protects this molecule.
Researchers find way to create stem cells for type 1 diabetes treatment
Fully developed adult cells may retain a "memory" of their past as pluripotent stem cells, which could potentially enable them to be re-engineered to serve multiple purposes, including treatments for type 1 diabetes, according to a new study out of Tel Aviv University.
Researchers identify process that prevents type 1 diabetes from progressing
Promoting levels of a certain protein may prevent the immune system of a person with type 1 diabetes from attacking the pancreas, which could prevent the disease from progressing in individuals newly diagnosed, according to a new study from a team of University of British Columbia researchers.
Antioxidant may protect type 1 diabetics from health complications
An antioxidant commonly found in strawberries may hold the key to preventing health complications related to type 1 diabetes, according to a new study out of the Salk Institute.
