Soup releases sugar faster into the bloodstream

Caring for a loved one with diabetes

As a health care provider who treats persons with diabetes, I frequently tell my patients, Im not the one taking care of your diabetes. You take care of your diabetes."

It may be difficult for a sibling without diabetes, as the child with diabetes will get more attention because of the disease.
Adolescence is probably the most difficult time in the life of a person with diabetes. The hormones of puberty affect behavior and also affect blood glucoses. This can be a time of rebellious behavior, which can negatively affect diabetes control. Often, this adolescent rebellion carries over to young adulthood, w Continue reading

These include pancreatic, lung and colorectal cancers, as well as melanomas
A widely-used diabetes drug and over-the-counter aspirin could help boost the effectiveness of cancer treatments, two studies suggest.
Research has found that metformin used to improve the way your body handles insulin may slow breast cancer growth and reverse treatment resistance.
Another study discovered adding aspirin to a cancer drug could make it more powerful in combating a group of tumors that are highly resistant to therapies.
These include some pancreatic, lung and colorectal cancers, as well as a small percentage of melanomas.

1 in 5 NBA players have heart scans that appear abnormal, study reveals
Canadian scientists found that metformin, used to treat type 2 diabetes, reduced the rapid reproduction of tumor cells in the laboratory.
It also prevented or delayed resistance to the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin.
Other laboratory experiments and tests on mice showed that metformin reversed protein markers associated with multiple drug resistance (MDR).
This meant the drug might help resistant breast cancers to start responding to treatment again, said the researchers.
