SCREENING REDUCES LOSS

Drinking a few times a week 'reduces diabetes risk'.

The BBC reported that people who drink three to four

times a week are less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes

than those who never drink, Danish researchers suggest.

Wine appears to be particularly beneficial, probably as it

plays a role in helping to manage blood sugar, the study,

published in Diabetologia says.

THINK DRINK?

Researchers from Sweden at the University of Gothenburg

in a study published in Science Translational Magazine say

that a broccoli sprout extract powder may be a potential

Type 2 diabetes treatment.

Owain Clarke, BBC Wales health correspondent, wrote

that research shows that the proportion of diabetics who

go blind or suffer sight loss has almost halved since a

new national retinopathy screening programme started in

2007. Diabetics aged over 12 are offered annual screening

and health experts said the study shows a 'clear benefit'.

New certifications for severe sight impairment have fallen

from 31.3 to 15.8 per 100,000 people. The Swansea

University research was published in the BMJ.

Scientists supported by Diabetes UK have found a

molecule that could be used as a new treatment for

retinopathy in the future. The molecule acts by reducing

the leakage of small blood vessels at the back of the eye.

The researchers tested the effects of a molecule called

VEGF-A165b on cells grown in the lab and blood vessels

in the eye of a laboratory model of diabetes. The molecule

was able to reduce the leakage of blood vessels and

stop them growing uncontrollably. Since VEGF-A165b is

naturally found in our bodies, scientists hope they can find

a way to increase its production in humans, to protect

people with diabetes from developing eye damage.
