Boston Children’s Hospital Finds Root Cause Of Diabetes

They say that with just a little more study, they could possibly cure type 1 diabetes. Boston Children’s Hospital could be on the verge of curing type 1 diabetes. Seriously. This huge news, which was announced today on their blog, could affect the 215,000 people in the U.S. younger than 20 who have diabetes (type 1 or type 2). That’s a pretty huge number, so it’s no wonder why it’s been called an epidemic. People who live with type 1 diabetes have to inject themselves with insulin to regulate the glucose in their blood. It’s an immediate fix, but there are many long-term complications associated with diabetes, like heart and kidney diseases, nerve problems, skin issues, and problems with vision, among others. “Insulin injections can manage hyperglycemia by reducing the patient’s glucose levels, but it is not the cure,” says Dr. Paolo Fiorina of the Nephrology Division at Boston Children’s Hospital in the report. The Nephrology Division was recently ranked number one in the country by U.S. News and World Report. Fiorina was looking for the molecular pathway that triggers diabetes, hoping to find better treatment options with the ultimate goal of finding a permanent Continue reading >>

    Burning and itching at insulin injection sites.

    I have noticed lately that sometimes when I inject (both my Lantus and my Humalog) that it will really burn then itch later. It doesnt do it all the time, just sometimes. My insulin is not cold and I make a point to inject slowly. Anyone else have this problem and what can I do about it? As a side note, I am noticing more bruising too. Looks like someone came after me with a wooden poker or something :P Also does anyone know if this might get worse when I start my pump...or hopefully get better>
    Cheers

    Pam Do you rotate your injection sites?
    I was told this (burning) can happen with Lantis. (I just started Lantis from Humalin N) and I am getting the burning too.
    I have been on insulin for 10 years than last month I started with the bruising problem... I switched to a smaller and shorter needle, that helped.

    Pam Pam: I occasionally get burning when injecting Lantus. I have read that Lantus is acidic. It is not recommended to pre-fill syringes for this reason. I also get itching and bruising as well. My stomach has little bruises on it. I found that holding the syringe at a 90 degree angle rather than straight in helps with the burning and bruising. Some people bruise easier than others and I am not sure why. Hopefully when you get your pump going you can stop some bruising since you won't be injecting the same way or as often.
