Caution in reducing blood pressure in patients with diabetes, coronary disease

For patients with diabetes and heart disease, less isn’t always more at least when it comes to blood pressure. New data show an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or death for patients having blood pressure deemed too high or too low, as per Rhonda Cooper-DeHoff, Pharm.D., an associate professor of pharmacy and medicine at UF. She reported her findings today (Sunday, March 14) at the American College of Cardiology’s 59th annual scientific session in Atlanta……..

Computer model predicts success in diabetes

A La Jolla Institute team, led by leading type 1 diabetes researcher Matthias von Herrath, M.D., has demonstrated the effectiveness of a recently developed computer model in predicting key information about nasal insulin therapy regimens in type 1 (juvenile) diabetes. Development of the software, the Type 1 Diabetes PhysioLab Platform, was funded through the peer-evaluated grant program of the American Diabetes Association……..

New diabetes risk assessment developed

A team from the University of Leicester, led by Professor Melanie Davies from the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences and Professor Kamlesh Khunti from the Department of Health Sciences, has developed an easy way for people to assess their risk of having diabetes. Working in partnership with Diabetes UK, the largest diabetes charity in the country, and University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, they have produced the first diabetes risk evaluation that can be used in a multi-ethnic population……..

Understanding diabetes at the molecular level

United States and Japanese scientists have identified a key step in metabolic pathways associated with diabetes and cancer. The study on activation of the protein complex TORC 2 was published online in the journal Current Biology Oct. 28. TORC 2 activates a protein called Akt, which plays a crucial role in how cells respond to insulin, said Kazuo Shiozaki, professor of microbiology in the College of Biological Sciences at UC Davis and senior author on the paper……..
