How does Artificial Pancreas treatment work in Diabetes?

Image
The pancreas plays an important role in the human body by keeping the blood sugar levels under control. The pancreas generally works as a transmitter of blood sugar, as the blood sugar rises after eating, and the sugar level in the blood would increase and hence the blood sugar is moved from the bloodstream to the cells with the help of  insulin hormone . The transferred blood sugar in the cells is stored for energy. And whenever the blood sugar levels get decreased, the pancreas release glucagon hormone, which intimates the liver to release the stored sugar into the bloodstream. In this way, the pancreas is one of the major organs for body function and metabolism.     In general,  Type 1 diabetes  patients consist of damaged pancreatic cells that make insulin. Hence they are unable to release the hormone. This is the reason why diabetes patients tend to inject insulin themselves when their blood sugar gets too high. So there is an urge for such medical development in diabetes trea

Diabetes and Heart Disease: Myths and Facts!

Image
It is not sure that, every diabetic patient is undergone, heart disease.  Diabetes  is a chronic disease that is caused by high blood glucose levels that result from the body’s inability to produce insulin or inefficiency in response. Poor  metabolism , weaker immune system, and reduced physical inactivity are majorly seen in diabetes patients. It is well known that, in diabetes patients, one of the major complications is Heart disease, but as compared to other complications, diabetic heart disease owns only about 20-30%. As diabetes complications possess 5% more risk of developing  brain stroke , whereas it possesses 30% more risk for developing kidney disease (diabetic nephropathy), 40% more for developing blindness (Retinopathy), and others are for amputation and associated complications. Now we will find out some Myths and facts regarding Diabetic Heart Disease:  ·         If you control diabetes, you are safe at heart health! Controlling Diabetes may not assure your heart hea

Does SARS-CoV-2 overwhelm Early DKD patients?

Image
In diabetic kidney disease patients, there is a weaker immune system and poor metabolic function in the body. Hence the  Strain 2 COVID  deaths were increasing till the day with unknown symptoms. The major reason behind this is, the new strain SARS-CoV-2 uses the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) for entry into the host cells. Using Bayesian integrative Analysis, a large collection of public-omics datasets identifies the molecular network includes  ACE2 -expressing proximal tubular in diabetic kidney disease. If there is a positive angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in diabetic kidney disease patients, it may overlap with the expression pattern seen in the SARS-CoV-2 infected cells and overwhelm the patient's condition. And the treatment for SARS-CoV-2 infected patients with  chronic kidney diseases  is still unclear.      The SARS-CoV-2 virus changes very slowly than the other viruses. This virus transmission can occur through direct or indirect contact with the infect
