Coping With Diabetes Cases

Jun 17, 2008
If you have diabetes, perhaps your doctor has told you some regimen in your food intake and for you to have lots of exercise. However, some diabetics are facing another problem: arthritis. According to the statistics, most diabetics are actually victims too of arthritis--that's double jeopardy in their part since they cannot do strenuous exercises like jogging and jumping jacks. Researchers said that providers of health care should keep track of those people since they tend to be inactive. It is important to note that exercise helps reduce the glucose in the blood and other risks for complications.

Senator Frank Lautenberg (Democrat, New Jersey) and Senator Johnny Isakson (Republican, Georgia) are being praised by the American Diabetes Association for lobbying an act that will benefit diabetes patients. The Diabetes Prevention Access and Care Act of 2008, if approved, will allow the Congress to support the research for the betterment and improvement of diabetes care, education etc. for the considered minority. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) included Hispanics, African Americans and American Indians etc. in their list of minorities and stated the fact that they are the most affected by this disease. This Act hopes to educate the people more about diabetes for further prevention.

There is a new discovery made Nature Genetics: a certain gene is responsible in making your waistline's circumference big, your weight increasing and for you to have type 2 diabetes. As we all know, obesity is linked with diabetes as obese people have a high insulin resistance, therefore, making them vulnerable to type 2 diabetes.

The gene discovered is most common to the Indian Asian race than those with European ancestry. This discovery can in fact help minimize, if not eliminate, obesity and diabetes amongst the people. It is said that half the population has this kind of genetic sequence, ergo, making this discovery vital to the human race if pursued and developed.

If you have been diagnosed of diabetes (either type I or type II), watch out, because recent studies show that diabetes is in fact connected with the dreaded Alzheimer's disease. Before, the connection's foundation was blurred according to the experts as they could not find the direct link that will establish the connection of diabetes with Alzheimer's however, researchers from the Salk Institute claimed that they have found it: the Alzheimer's interaction. They said that the brain's blood vessels are damaged or ruptured if the blood glucose count is high. Salk Institute plans to further their research to determine if there are still other factors to it.

An analysis fo 48 studies was done, comprising 160,000 participants worldwide. The purpose was to look at efforts to increase the number of diabetic patients who would actually have their eyes tested.

The following interventions were able to help propel people to have their eye examined: by increasing patient and caregiver of diabetic retinopathy; improving access to healthcare; using computer-based reminder systems; augmenting collaboration among screening organizations; and developing a community-based healthcare system. Combining interventions together worked even better.
