The Effect of Prandial Insulin Applied for Fat Protein Units on Postprandial Glucose Excursions in Type 1 Diabetes Patients with Insulin Pump Therapy: Results of a Randomized, Controlled, Cross-Over Study.

Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 2021 Apr 20. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

FIDAM - Research Institute Diabetes Academy, Mergentheim, Gemany.

Objective: This randomized cross-over study aimed to compare different algorithms for calculating prandial insulin considering the fat and protein content of a standardized meal in type 1 diabetes patients using insulin pump therapy (CSII).

Methods: Twenty-six patients received a standardized evening meal for three consecutive days using different algorithms for insulin dose adjustment: A) exclusive consideration of carbohydrate content without considering fat-protein content, B) high-dose algorithm considering additional insulin for fat protein units (FPUs) with the same factor as for carbohydrates, and C) low-dose algorithm considering additional insulin for FPUs with half the factor as for carbohydrates. The primary outcome was the proportion of interstitial glucose values in the target range (≥ 70 to ≤ 180 mg/dl) during the post-prandial 12-hour follow-up period. Read More

Diabetes Centre, Second Department of Internal Medicine, Democritus University of Thrace, Alexandroupolis, Greece. Electronic address:

Lifestyle modification, including a healthy diet, is of paramount importance in the management of diabetes mellitus. To this end, diets have been proposed with low glycemic index (an index of carbohydrate food expressing how quickly this nutrient can increase blood glucose) and glycemic load (an index obtained by multiplying the glycemic index by the grams of carbohydrate, then dividing by 100). The aim of this review was to discuss the potential contribution of diets with low glycemic index and glycemic load in diabetic microvascular complications. Read More

J Food Biochem 2021 Apr 20:e13737. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

College of Food Science and Technology, Hunan Agricultural University, Changsha, China.

Areca nut and Fuzhuan brick tea, a type of natural plant products, have obvious effects of fat reduction and weight loss; however, there is no report on their synergistic effect. This study investigated the effects of Fuzhuan brick tea supplemented with different concentrations of areca nut (5% (LAF), 10% (MAF), and 20% (HAF)) on serum and gut microbiota in Kunming (KM) mice. The results showed that Fuzhuan brick tea supplemented with areca nuts (AFTs) could reduce weight, prevent the accumulation of fat, inhibit the increase in the levels of serum triglyceride, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, blood glucose, free fatty acid, insulin, and total bile acid, alleviate the decrease in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, and regulate the composition of gut microbiota by high-fat diet intervention.

A collagen glucosyltransferase drives lung adenocarcinoma progression in mice.

Commun Biol 2021 Apr 19;4(1):482. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Department of Thoracic/Head and Neck Medical Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Cancer cells are a major source of enzymes that modify collagen to create a stiff, fibrotic tumor stroma. High collagen lysyl hydroxylase 2 (LH2) expression promotes metastasis and is correlated with shorter survival in lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) and other tumor types. LH2 hydroxylates lysine (Lys) residues on fibrillar collagen's amino- and carboxy-terminal telopeptides to create stable collagen cross-links. Read More
