NEWS

People living with diabetes are sharing

healthier twists on the 'food you love' such

as fish and chips or apple strudel in a new

campaign by the charity Diabetes UK (see

video below). Five delicious recipes are

being showcased by five people who have

not let living with diabetes stand between

them and their favourite food. They are also

sharing their tips that have helped them

manage their diabetes. The charity hopes

the easy recipes and tips will inspire more

people to make small changes that can

make a big difference to how they manage

their diabetes. Before 15 July, sign up to

view free recipe videos and more at

GLUCOSE-RESPONSIVE INSULIN SOLUTION

As reported by Medgadget.com,

researchers at North Carolina State

University and the University of North

Carolina at Chapel Hill may have developed

a rudimentary artificial pancreas capable

of releasing insulin in response to real-time

changes in blood glucose content. Their

technique involves attaching a modified

form of insulin to glucosamine, a chemical

that binds to glucose transporters on red

blood cells. Injecting the modified insulin

and glucosamine compound results in red

blood cells ferrying insulin on their surfaces

As glucose levels rise, the sugar pushes

the glucosamine off the red blood cells to

make room for itself. This frees the insulin

that's attached to the glucosamine to attach

to insulin receptors within the body, initiating

the processes that lower blood glucose

concentration. The lab mice in the study

that had Type I diabetes demonstrated an

impressive level of control over their blood

sugar for more than two days following the

injection of the newly developed insulin/

glucosamine compound. On the

other hand, healthy mice showed a

lower preponderance for developing

hypoglycemia when injected with

the compound. The next steps will

involve testing a microneedle injection

system for delivering the compound then

evaluating its effectiveness in human

subjects.
