The Vaccine Against Diabetes Has Been Officially Announced And The Entire World Is Celebrating The News!

Only in the USA, 1.25 million people suffer from type one diabetes. On the bright side, a vaccine used more than 100 years ago for tuberculosis (bacillus Calmette-Guerin) has turned out to be promising when it comes to reversing this disease. Nowadays, medical experts and doctors use this vaccine for treating bladder cancer, meaning that this vaccine is safe.
At the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association it was announced that the Food and Drugs Administration will test the vaccine on 150 people who are in an advanced stage of type one diabetes.
An individual that suffers from type one diabetes faces the problem of their body not producing insulin due to the immune system destroying the cells that create insulin. The body produces T cells, which cause problems in the pancreatic islets, where insulin is being produced. The vaccine actually eliminates these T cells.
People who suffer from diabetes and who have been injected with the vaccine noticed an increase in the levels of a substance called tumor necrosis factor. The increased level of TNF in the system annihilates the T cells which obstruct the process of production of insulin.
In an experiment from before, patients suffering from diabetes type one were injected with the tuberculosis vaccine twice within a month time frame. The results revealed that the dangerous T cells were eliminated, and in some of these people, insulin started secreting on its own.
These result that the BCG vaccine has been showing especially thrilled Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Immunobi Continue reading

Rob Kardashian Home After Hospitalization: Surprise Diabetes Diagnosis Was a "Wake Up Call," Source Says

A new development concerning Rob Kardashian's health has been revealed.
E! News confirms that the 28-year-old, who has remained away from the spotlight for quite some time now, is back at home after being diagnosed with diabetes.
Rob was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after not feeling well over the holiday weekend. Once his condition seemed to worsen, he was taken to the doctor to see what was going on. After performing various tests, doctors concluded that Rob is diabetic.
"He's home already. He went for a little and is fine now. It was a wake up call," the source tells E! News. The insider adds that Rob's tests revealed his blood sugar levels were very high, and doctors told him that he needs to lose weight, exercise and dramatically change his diet, or it will get worse.
Rob's well-being has been in question ever since he decided to become reclusive, and the speculation was heightened when sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian each took to Instagram to share touching messages about their little brother.
The 31-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared an adorable throwback selfie of herself pouting for the camera while brother Rob gave her a kiss on the cheek. "If only you could see yourself through my eyes!" she captioned the blurry shot on her Instagram account. "I'll forever be obsessed with you! My one and only! #MyAce"
Meanwhile, the mother of three shared another photo of Rob sleeping on the couch with a simple caption that read, "Bob" with a heart emoji.
The former Dancing With the Stars competitor has stayed out of the limelight for more than a year Continue reading

Wine May Benefit Those With Type 2 Diabetes: New Data

Wine May Benefit Those With Type 2 Diabetes: New Data

If you want to persuade your physician that sensible wine consumption is likely good for glucose control and heart health, researchers have made your argument easier.
Scientists at Ben-Gurion University in Israel knew that, among moderate drinkers, type 2 diabetes is less common. Since earlier studies showed that ethanol (alcohol) is likely the reason, they wondered if both white and red wine might improve glucose control and reduce the risk of heart disease.
The researchers hypothesized that moderate drinking of white or red wine would provide similar effects since both contain ethanol, and that outcome variations would be owed to genetic and alcohol metabolism differences.
A two-year study was devised to test the hypothesis.
Recruits and Setup
The 224 recruited participants were men and women with well-controlled type 2 diabetes, ages 40 to 75 who generally abstained from alcohol.
Participants were randomly assigned to drink 150 ml of mineral water, white wine, or red wine with their dinner. Each followed Mediterranean diet guidelines without calorie restrictions. Questionnaires were administered, and blood samples were taken at regular intervals.
Stats were kept on participant triglyceride levels, waist circumference, blood pressure, medication use, genetic interaction, liver function, and quality-of-life factors.
After Two Years
The research analysis suggests “that initiating moderate wine intake, especially red wine, among well-controlled diabetics as part of a healthy diet is apparently safe and modestly decreases cardiometabolic risk.”
Specifically, the researche Continue reading

Study: Cats eating dry food have increased risk for developing Type 2 diabetes

Study: Cats eating dry food have increased risk for developing Type 2 diabetes

By Veterinary Practice News Editors
Some cat owners have advocated not feeding dry food to cats for health reasons, and now the science may back those claims up. A recent study conducted by researchers at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences found an increased risk of diabetes mellitus (Type 2) in normal-weight cats that consume a dry food diet.
The study, “Environmental Risk Factors for Diabetes Mellitus in Cats,” was published online December 1, 2016, and will be included in the January/February digital issue of the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine (JVIM), a publication of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM).
“Through our research we found that while obesity is a very important and prominent risk factor for diabetes mellitus in cats, there is also an increased risk of diabetes among normal-weight cats consuming a dry food diet,” said Malin Öhlund, DVM, a Ph.D student of the department of Clinical Services at the Swedish University of Agricultural Science and lead researcher on the study. “This correlation, compared to normal-weight cats on a wet food diet, is a new and interesting finding that warrants further research, as a dry food diet is commonly fed to cats around the world.”
This study investigated both new and known risk factors associated with diabetes mellitus in cats. In addition to an increased risk among normal-weight cats on a dry food diet, the study also found that indoor confinement and inactivity, being a greedy eater and being overweight were also associated with an increased risk Continue reading

This Will Shock You, But This Juice Successfully Prevents Cancer, Diabetes, Gastritis And Lowers Blood Pressure

This Will Shock You, But This Juice Successfully Prevents Cancer, Diabetes, Gastritis And Lowers Blood Pressure

This juice is way more effective than any type of modern medicine. It successfully prevents diabetes, gastritis, high blood pressure and many other serious diseases, including cancer. The healthy benefits of raw potatoes are known for centuries, for people who use them in folk medicine, but despite that, we all still think that we shouldn’t consume raw potatoes. But, actually, we are wrong, because in raw form, potatoes are very healthy and contain high amounts of good nutrients.
And, another important thing, worth mentioning, is that it’s necessary to peel of the potatoes before eating. This is because the potato’s peel is poisonous. But, the peel on potatoes, which are grown organically, does not contain any type of harmful substances for you and your health. Another thing you should know is that potatoes with green peel and potatoes sprout can also be dangerous. The danger lies in solanine. Solanine is the poison that exists in the green parts of potatoes. But, don’t you. All you have to do is peel the potato before you use it.
Potatoes – Miracle Cure For Many Diseases
A lot of medical experts, including John Lesindzer and Dr. John Tucakov wrote many articles about the healing properties of potato juice. John Lesindzer believes that this juice is the best natural remedy for the treatment of gastritis and we all know that gastritis is one of the most common diseases of modern times. Lesindzer recommends taking 1 tbs. of homemade potato juice with some water. You should drink this homemade potato juice 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. He also mentio Continue reading

  • Type 1 diabetes vaccine hailed as 'significant step'

    It may be possible to reverse type 1 diabetes by training a patient's own immune system to stop attacking their body, an early trial suggests. Their immune system destroys the cells that make insulin, the hormone needed to control blood sugar levels. A study in 80 patients, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, showed a vaccine could retrain their immune system. Experts describe ...
