weat glucose sensor Can Monitor Blood Glucose With Your Sweat | wearable glucose meter | Sweat patch It is known that, from a small amount of blood can be used to measure the quantity of blood sugar, but now South Korea specialists have been successful in developing a wrist belt for measuring the amount of blood sugar to measure the sugar volume with the help of sweat. Specialists of the National University of South Korea in Seoul have made wrist bandages, after a minor change, it can also be applied to the use of fine syringe needles, which can inject medicine by detecting the increased quantity of blood sugar. Commenting on this invention, Dr. Paul Jenkins, Sweat patch accurately calculates blood glucose levels and administers metformin in mice: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/news/2017/... London Endocrin Center's Expert, says that this is an interesting concern for controlling diabetes, if it is useful after mass testing, it will provide great benefits to the diabetic patient. This will alleviate the painful process of inserting needle to detect sugar level. It is tied to the upper part of the arm and notes the amount of blood sugar in the sweat quickly and efficiently. A recent study has revealed that it shows results like strip blood sugar standard tests and tells how much medication should be taken to keep blood sugar normally. Now, there is no need of strips and tied band is enough to note the blood sugar volume in blood. Sweat patch blood glucose monitor could replace finger prick tests: https://www.drwf.org.uk/news-and-even... There are 20 million sweat glands found in our body, which secrete that sweat in both situations of exercise and comfort . Glucose is also secreted along with sweat, which reflects the quality of sugar in a proper manner, it has to wear 15 minutes for accurate reading, and it requires only 10 mili litre of sweat.

Glucose

Physiology • Glucose in the blood is derived from three main sources: ○ ▪ Glucose is the end-product of carbohydrate digestion, absorbed by enterocytes. ▪ Increased blood glucose concentrations occur 2 to 4 hours after a meal in simple-stomached animals. ○ Hepatic production ▪ Gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis within hepatic cells produce glucose when metabolically necessary. □ Gluconeogenesis converts noncarbohydrate sources, primarily amino acids (from protein) and glycerol (from fat), in simple-stomached animals. □ Glycogenolysis converts glycogen (poly-glucose) stored in hepatocytes to glucose through hydrolysis. ▪ Gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis within hepatic cells produce glucose when metabolically necessary. □ Gluconeogenesis converts noncarbohydrate sources, primarily amino acids (from protein) and glycerol (from fat), in simple-stomached animals. □ Glycogenolysis converts glycogen (poly-glucose) stored in hepatocytes to glucose through hydrolysis. ○ ▪ Gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis within renal epithelial cells can result in the formation of glucose when metabolically necessary. • The plasma concentration of glucose is controlled by a n Continue reading >>

    hi everyone im new here
    I searched for help as Im having a dreadful time
    Been diagnosed with type 2 about a year ago.was put on diet only at first but then about 7months ago put onto Metformin as fasting sugars still around 11.
    from the very start had nausea and diarrhea but persisted as doctor told me to cut down to half a tablet twice a day for a few months then slowly got up to 2 a day before Christmas
    my fasting sugars still up around 9 so told to increase slowly to 4 a day using half amounts again.
    I havent even mangagd to get to that just on the 2 a day still as now been on regularly the 2 a day waiting for my stomach to settle down.I have cramps stomach pains and sever diarrhea.they did tests to rule out any bug or inflamations but my gp seems to insist he does not think Metformin can cause the diarrhea and told me I cant change to anything else as Metformin is best for me due to over weight
    Trouble is i havent been able to leave my house for months.the diarrhea is persistant more than once a day.and so sever I cant get to loo on time sometimes as it just goes..Im at my wits end and cant cope anymore with it.
    Ive tried the long release and it didnt seem to stop it unles maybe i need a few days break from the standard Metformin before trying the slow release..but with this amount and severity of side effect Im worried if the long release form will reallly make a lot of differnce? anyone had any experience of it making a lot of diference and helping ???
    I dont know why my Gp insists it cant be the metformin.it started when i started taking it and increased worse after increasing the meds...please help..i would rather suffer diabetes than be like this the rest of my life
    ive managed sort my diet out i think pretty well and now my sugars are around 6.2 to 6.5 much lower than my original but not sure if thats diet or the metformin helping me.s=funnily enough the Gp didnt want to start me on any meds at all and i had to keep asking for them so he probably just stop me on any..is there any other meds that help with weight loss i can tell him about ??? some of the newest i heard are meant to help but not sure where to look for info thank you

    Welcome to the Forum, Manxie.
    Standard Metformin should be totally out of your body in about 48 hours after you stop taking it. The SR version is usually kinder to the gut. Metformin will bring your Bg levels down by about 1-2 mmol/L on the maximum dose.
    If the GP cares to consult the BNF which all doctors have in their surgery he will see this :
    Side-effects
    anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea (usually transient), abdominal pain, taste disturbance, rarely lactic acidosis (withdraw treatment), decreased vitamin-B12 absorption, erythema, pruritus and urticaria; hepatitis also reported Why not give diet another go ? There are alternative drugs which you could have and not all of them make you put on weight but if you can control it with diet it's worth the effort.
    Here is the advice Ken and I give to new members, see if any of it helps.
    Here is the advice we usually give to newly diagnosed diabetics. We hope that these few ideas gained through experience help you to gain control and give you some understanding of Diabetes. This forum doesn't always follow the recommended dietary advice, you have to work out what works for you as we are all different.
    It's not just 'sugars' you need to avoid, diabetes is an inability to process glucose properly. Carbohydrate converts, in the body, to glucose. So it makes sense to reduce the amount of carbohydrate that you eat which includes sugars.
    This is NOT a low carb diet suggestion, just a reduction in your intake of carbohydrate. You have to decide yourself how much of a reduction will keep your blood glucose levels in control.
    The main carbs to avoid OR reduce are the complex or starchy carbohydrates such as bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, starchy root veg and also any flour based products. The starchy carbs all convert 100% to glucose in the body and raise the blood sugar levels significantly.
    If you are on Insulin you may find that reducing the carb intake also means that you can reduce your dose of insulin. This can help you to keep weight gain down as Insulin tends to make you put on weight and eventually cause insulin resistance. This should be done slowly so as not to cause hypos.
    The way to find out how different foods affect you is to do regular daily testing and keep a food diary for a couple of weeks. If you test just before eating, then two hours after eating, you will see the effect of certain foods on your blood glucose levels. Some foods, which are slow acting carbohydrates, are absorbed more slowly so you may need to test three or even four hours later to see the effect that these have on your blood glucose levels.
    Buy yourself a carb counter book (you can get these on-line) and you will be able to work out how much carbs you are eating, when you test, the reading two hours after should be roughly the same as the before eating reading, if it is then that meal was fine, if it isn’t then you need to check what you have eaten and think about reducing the portion size of carbs.
    When you are buying products check the total carbohydrate content, this includes the sugar content. Do not just go by the amount of sugar on the packaging as this is misleading to a diabetic.
    As for a tester, try asking the nurse/doctor and explain that you want to be proactive in managing your own diabetes and therefore need to test so that you can see just how foods affect your blood sugar levels. Hopefully this will work ! Sometimes they are not keen to give Type 2’s the strips on prescription, (in the UK) but you can but try!!
    If you are an Insulin user in theory you should have no problem getting test strips.
    The latest 2010 NICE guidelines for Bg levels are as follows:
    Fasting (waking and before meals).......between 4 - 7 mmol/l...(Type 1 & 2)
    2 hrs after meals........................no more than 8.5 mmol/l.....( Type 2)
    2hrs after meals......................... no more than 9 mmol/l ......(Type 1)
    If you are able to keep the post meal numbers lower, so much the better.
    It also helps if you can do 30 minutes moderate exercise a day. It doesn't have to be strenuous.
    The above is just general advice and it is recommended that you discuss with your HCP before making any changes. You can also ask questions on the forum on anything that is not clear.
    Sue/Ken.

How Fat Cells Work

In the last section, we learned how fat in the body is broken down and rebuilt into chylomicrons, which enter the bloodstream by way of the lymphatic system. Chylomicrons do not last long in the bloodstream -- only about eight minutes -- because enzymes called lipoprotein lipases break the fats into fatty acids. Lipoprotein lipases are found in the walls of blood vessels in fat tissue, muscle tissue and heart muscle. Insulin When you eat a candy bar or a meal, the presence of glucose, amino acids or fatty acids in the intestine stimulates the pancreas to secrete a hormone called insulin. Insulin acts on many cells in your body, especially those in the liver, muscle and fat tissue. Insulin tells the cells to do the following: The activity of lipoprotein lipases depends upon the levels of insulin in the body. If insulin is high, then the lipases are highly active; if insulin is low, the lipases are inactive. The fatty acids are then absorbed from the blood into fat cells, muscle cells and liver cells. In these cells, under stimulation by insulin, fatty acids are made into fat molecules and stored as fat droplets. It is also possible for fat cells to take up glucose and amino acids, w Continue reading >>

    Cora At first, I was only consuming around 1g of salt per day then I started getting heart palpitation and people on the ketosis forum informed me that I have to increase my salt intake to 3-5g. I've increased it to 3g but I was still getting the attack so I even increased it more to around 4g so my electrolytes are balanced.

    I agree with you on the protein. Especially as she's currently breast-feeding.
    About the protein, it says that 1g per 1kg lean body mass. My protein intake should be 38g per day and I've been eating a bit more than that per day.

How Is Excess Glucose Stored?

The human body has an efficient and complex system of storing and preserving energy. Glucose is a type of sugar that the body uses for energy. Glucose is the product of breaking down carbohydrates into their simplest form. Carbohydrates should make up approximately 45 to 65 percent of your daily caloric intake, according to MayoClinic.com. Video of the Day Glucose is a simple sugar found in carbohydrates. When more complex carbohydrates such as polysaccharides and disaccharides are broken down in the stomach, they break down into the monosaccharide glucose. Carbohydrates serve as the primary energy source for working muscles, help brain and nervous system functioning and help the body use fat more efficiently. Function of Glucose Once carbohydrates are absorbed from food, they are carried to the liver for processing. In the liver, fructose and galactose, the other forms of sugar, are converted into glucose. Some glucose gets sent to the bloodstream while the rest is stored for later energy use. Once glucose is inside the liver, glucose is phosphorylated into glucose-6-phosphate, or G6P. G6P is further metabolized into triglycerides, fatty acids, glycogen or energy. Glycogen is the Continue reading >>

    How to know if you are in ketosis.

    Well i am sure there is another post like this, because i read it before, but i dont remeber exactly what it said and I cant find it.
    The quesiton is just as the title says, how can i know if i am in ketosis or not?
    I have been reading and the people says that at the second day, or thirth day or X day they get in to ketosis, but how they know that?
    Thanks

    If you have never been in Ketosis buy some keto sticks. You can pick them up at most drug stores in the US and Canada. Ask the pharmisist if you can't find them on the shelf. Usually they will be with diabetic supplies. Lots of people will say not to waist your money but they are cheap and I get an instant gratification when I see the test strip turn color. Besides, it is always nice to see evidence that your effort is paying off.
    -odd metalic taste in your mouth and bad breath.
    -Odd smelling urine is another symptom.
    -You will pee like a race horse.
    - I also get cotton mouth (dry mouth and really foamy saliva). Not sure if anyone else gets this.

    Normally i pee like a race horse for 2 days after my carb up which means im back in ketosis, Breath smells like crap, my wee smells like meat, and i find i get really de-hydrated...
