Lipid Metabolism In The Etiology Of Type 2 Diabetes Esser, Victoria University Of Texas Sw Medical Center Dallas, Dallas, Tx, United States

Lipid Metabolism in the Etiology of Type 2 Diabetes (Scanned from the applicant's description) Type 2 diabetes mellitus has major clinical and social impact, but its underlying pathophysiology is poorly understood. Since the disease is diagnosed as a disorder of carbohydrate metabolism, i.e., hyperglycemia, the possible contribution of abnormal lipid metabolism to its etiology has been largely overlooked. The predominant, obesity-related form of diabetes is characterized by hyperinsulinemia, resistance to insulin-mediated glucose disposal in skeletal muscle, and elevated plasma free fatty acid and triglyceride levels. It has been suggested that a derangement of lipid metabolism is an early event contributing to the development of both hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance. Our laboratory has demonstrated the essential role that plasma fatty acids play in sustaining normal glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in fasted subjects, and has also utilized novel 1-H NMR spectroscopic techniques to illustrate the strong correlation between intramyocellular lipid (IMCL) content and skeletal muscle insulin resistance. In the current proposal, we seek to expand on this theme by investigati Continue reading >>

    Humulin and Novolin are brand names-2 different makers of insulin. You have probably seen Humulin R and Humalog-2 different insulins-Humalog works faster than Humulin R. Both are clear in color.
    From the other company is Novolin R and Novolog (plus other products). Again, 2 different insulins. Novolog works faster than Novolin R. Both are clear in color.
    These are not all the insulins available. Look at web site links below for more info:

Obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic diseases have known underlying genetic causes; however, environmental factors also play an important role in the onset and development of metabolic dysfunction. In this episode, Mitchell Lazar and Raymond Soccio discuss their study, which compared high fat-diet-induced effects on gene expression and the epigenome in mice genetically prone to diet-induced obesity and in animals that are resistant to diet-induced metabolic disease. They find that the thermogenic gene Ucp1 is repressed in the obesity-prone mice, but that either cold-exposure or treatment with the insulin-sensitizing drug rosiglitazone restores Ucp1 expression to levels similar to that in obesity-resistant strains. The results of this study demonstrate that genetic defects in metabolism can be rescued by environmentally-driven epigenomic modifications.

    Free Online Certificate course of Diabetes

    Dear Friends,
    I'm not sure if this type of education has been discussed before in the community…came across the following 5-week online course (which also includes possible certification) from University of California San Francisco on "Diabetes: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Opportunities". It could be useful for someone who wants to know a little more to manage diabetes. Also tons of other wide ranging topics.
    Looks like the date of starting this particular course has not yet announced, but I shall be looking forward to taking up this course when it is made available.

    medicalmen; most say it smells more like fish, as far as the ingredents they claim it is a chemical reaction of the meds in it, And if you want to avoid the smell it is said to get the timed release from your doctor which has less of a smell. But to date they really don't know what it is from. Chuck1957 here is a write up about it this is a copy and paste about your question. GOOD LUCK Chuck
