LCHP diets

New research suggests that a lowcarb,

high-protein (LCHP) diet

could improve kidney function for

some people. This comes following

concerns that following this diet

plan for an extended period could

cause kidney damage in some people,

including those with Type 2 diabetes,

as the body can have difficulty

eliminating high volumes of protein

waste products. Around one-third of

people with the condition also have

some degree of kidney disease.

The researchers analysed the

records of 143 people with Type 2

diabetes who had followed a lowcarb

diet, diagnosed for an average

of five years and three months.

Participants had normal kidney

function or mild kidney disease and

had followed a low-carb diet for an

average of 30 months.

An earlier study found this group

lost an average of 9.5kg, and 47%

put their diabetes into remission.

In the latest study, two-thirds also

had improved kidney function. The

study was published in August in

Current Opinion in Endocrinology,

Diabetes and Obesity. To read more,

link to brain

conditions

Latest studies show a link between

diabetes and brain conditions,

such as Alzheimer's disease and

Parkinson's disease - health issues

that are becoming more common

as our population ages. There are

strategies to improve brain health.

Campaign cuts 999 call outs

An education campaign has helped

to "significantly" reduce the

number of recurrent emergency

callouts across the East Midlands to

people with diabetes experiencing

hypoglycaemia. The research behind

the initiative was shared to mark

Hypo Awareness Week that ran from

13-19 September, aiming to raise

awareness of hypos to healthcare

professionals in the UK and Ireland

with hospitals across the countries

taking part.

The campaign was developed

after research showed that around

one in 10 people who have a severe

hypo would have another one within

a fortnight. This saw the rollout of

a booklet - Hypos Can Strike Twice

- issued by paramedics following

a hypoglycaemic event to prevent

future ambulance attendances.

Along with the booklet, ambulance

staff also provided patients with

information on accessing follow-up

care by GPs or specialised diabetes

teams.

Research carried out by National

Institute for Health Research (NIHR),

Applied Research Collaboration

(ARC) East Midlands, in collaboration

with the East Midlands Ambulance

Service NHS Trust, shows the Hypos

Can Strike Twice intervention

had a positive impact. The study

of 4,825 patients experiencing

hypoglycaemic events attended

by the ambulance service over

two years indicated a significant

decrease in repeat attendances

for hypoglycaemia compared to

the pre-intervention trend. Hypos

Can Strike Twice costs around

£3.70 to issue, including staff time

using it, compared to an ambulance

attendance costing up to £257.

Professor Kamlesh Khunti,

Director of NIHR ARC East Midlands

and Professor of Primary Care

Diabetes and Vascular Medicine

at the University of Leicester,

said: "This is an important study

because it shows that by improving

education, we can ease the pressure

on the NHS and improve the quality

of life for people experiencing

severe hypos. This study is also

another example of how we are

working to bridge the gap between

research and frontline healthcare,

ensuring evidence is adopted sooner

leading to improvements to services

and people's lives."

It is estimated there are up

to 100,000 emergency callouts

annually for hypoglycaemia in the

UK, costing £13.6m per year to the

NHS, with each hospital admission

costing approximately £1,000.

This free booklet will soon be

available for all ambulance services

to use and provide to their staff

and patients.

SNAQ US launch

SNAQ has launched its award-winning diabetes management app in the

United States to help people living with diabetes take the guesswork out of

mealtime decisions.

SNAQ helps to count carbs, protein, and fat content of meals by taking a

photo and supports learning what keeps glucose levels in the target range

after meals. SNAQ connects to popular glucose sensors and diabetes apps

from Dexcom, Abbott, Medtronic, mySugr, Sugarmate, Tidepool and more.

Founder and CEO Aurelian Brine told us, "Having originally launched as

a lifestyle app in Germany, Switzerland and Austria the company plans to

launch in further countries including the UK. We'll keep you informed."
