Diabetes Prevention Tips You Need To Adopt Today

Diabetes Prevention Tips You Need To Adopt Today

Tweet
It’s safe to say that getting diabetes is one of the worst things that can happen if you want to have a good quality of life. Not only will your metabolism be deranged, but diabetes is associated with increased inflammation, nerve pain, obesity, trouble walking, poor cognition, and a host of other problems.
Prevent the nightmare from happening to you with these research-proven habits you can adopt today.
#1: Walk After Meals
Everyone tells you to get physical when you are at risk of diabetes. Few tell you how to do it. One easy way is to make it a habit to walk for ten minutes after each meal. This is what diabetics did in one recent study and results showed that they had a significantly greater improvement in blood sugar levels than a group that walked for 30 minutes all at once. Researchers believe walking after eating increases your sensitivity to insulin and the body’s ability to metabolize carbohydrates safely.
#2: Go High In Protein, Low In Carbs
High-protein, low-carb diets restore insulin sensitivity and improve blood sugar levels, lowering diabetes risk. You don’t have to cut down on carbs forever, but going low in carbs for a few weeks pays off in other ways too: Carb craving drop and people have steadier energy and are better able to maintain an even keel with their eating instead of bingeing on unhealthy foods due to blood sugar spikes and valleys.
#3: Strength Train With Weights
Most people will tell you to start with aerobic exercise, and while cardio can be great for lowering diabetes risk, it doesn’t convey a few key benefits available from lif Continue reading

New Skin Patch Monitors Glucose and Delivers Diabetes Drugs

New Skin Patch Monitors Glucose and Delivers Diabetes Drugs

People with diabetes need to closely monitor their blood glucose levels multiple times every day, usually using a device that pricks their finger for a blood test to assess whether they need insulin shots or other drugs. Since blood collection and shots can be painful, not all patients do it as regularly as they need to—which can lead to dangerous fluctuations in their blood glucose levels.
Researchers have worked for years on methods to improve and even automate blood glucose monitoring and insulin/drug delivery. For example, insulin pumps make drug delivery easier, and recently designed artificial pancreas systems offer closed-loop monitoring and drug delivery. Now, researchers in Korea have just developed a wearable, and potentially disposable, glucose monitoring and drug-delivery system that uses sweat, not blood, to determine glucose levels.
The results, published today in Science Advances, suggest it’s a major upgrade. There are several differences between the artificial pancreas and the sweat-based monitoring system, according to lead author Hyunjae Lee, of Seoul National University in the Republic of Korea. While both devices can check blood glucose in real time and deliver necessary drugs, the artificial pancreas’s drug-delivery needles are permanently embedded subcutaneously, and the device itself is made of rigid plastic, which "might cause discomfort," Lee tells mental_floss.
The sweat-based system, on the other hand, is transfer-printed onto a thin silicone skin patch. It’s made of flexible and stretchable electronics, a series of stretchable graphene s Continue reading
