T+ MEDICAL & LIFESCAN - A NEW HOPE FOR DIABETIC PATIENTS

Mar 18, 2008
Diabetes can be the cause of some pretty serious health issues such as blindness, heart disease, and kidney failure. Insulin dependent patients suffer more severe effect of the disease as opposed to those diabetic patients that are non-insulin dependent.

Deficiency of Insulin causes Diabetes and Insulin is the hormone secreted by pancreas, especially the islets cell of pancreas. There are two major functions of Insulin. The first one is the breakage of the food into glucose which is the energy provider for our body and also helping in the movement of fats , glucose , proteins in the cells for the production of energy. Lowering the sugar level is the second major function of Insulin. There are two type of Diabetes - Type 1 & type 2 where Type 1 is the kind of diabetes where the body cannot generate Insulin and Type 2 is where the cells in the body are not able to utilize the insulin properly and in this type of diabetes its tough to know that you are suffering from it in the early stages and this hampers the body slowly & gradually.

Treatment of Diabetes includes taking care of your diet, medication, exercising , control on stress and depression , and Kidney dialysis and transplant etc. Taking a managed and balanced diet is an important factor in maintaining the blood glucose levels. A Well-balanced diet includes a healthy and nutritious diet which is low in cholesterol, sugar and fats and includes green leafy vegetables etc. Insulin is the most important drug for people suffering from Type-1 Diabetes. Exercising also keeps the disease in control and increases the body sensitivity to insulin, thereby maintaining blood glucose levels. Oral Medications are there as a means of cure if the above precautions do not serve the purpose. Scientists are in the process of developing a new technique for fighting against the deadly disease, Diabetes. The new technique may completely eliminate the use of insulin shots. The technique is being developed by transforming human stem cells into mice.

More than 15 million Americans are suffering from diabetes and most of them are dependent on daily insulin shots. The key to control diabetes is to lower blood pressure and blood glucose levels and high cholesterol levels. Smoking triggers heart diseases and even greatly increases the risk for heart disease in diabetic people. Therefore diabetic people are advised to quit smoking in order to control the deadly heart diseases and high cholesterol levels.

A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, LifeScan, supplies hospitals and patients with blood glucose monitoring systems, meters, test strips, lancing devices, and software. T+ Medical is an institution that takes data received from LifeScan and transmits the information to a central database. Patients can view this information and monitor their diabetes via their personal computers or their mobile phones. T+ Medical was founded in 2002 to provide technology and services relating to the treatment of diseases such as diabetes. Their goal is to provide healthcare providers and patients with cost effective technologies to aid in the fight of these deadly diseases.

It is a major benefit for physicians who treat diabetes and their patients, that LifeScan and T+ Medical have joined together in the fight to treat diabetes. By combining two different technologies, these two companies provide lifesaving services to diabetics and their physicians. T+ Medical obtains its data from LifeScan's One Touch (R) Ultra (R) System. This meter is small and it gives accurate results fast. Patients can receive their results within five seconds after they input their information.
