Fructose

expands gut

surface

A study feeding mice highfructose

corn syrup has found it

increases the gut's surface area

that is associated with enhanced

absorption of dietary nutrients and

weight gain. High-fructose corn

syrup is a widely used sweetener

in human diets and excess

consumption of processed sugars,

and high-fructose corn syrup is

strongly implicated in diet-induced

obesity. Obesity predisposes people

to various diseases and conditions.

Whether and how fructose causes

obesity in humans remains a hotly

debated question2,3. In a report

in Nature that should make one

think twice before gulping down

sugar-sweetened drinks with fatty

snacks, Taylor et al.4 propose that

HFCS promotes obesity by boosting

the ability of the intestine to

absorb nutrients. Biocorp and Novo Nordisk

Osteo drug may reduce T2 risk

Research suggests that an osteoporosis drug called alendronate reduces the

risk of Type 2 diabetes. People with diabetes have a higher risk of fractures,

suggesting a link between blood glucose regulation and bone strength.

Recent research with animals also notes that the modification of bone cells

by osteoporosis drugs affects glucose regulation. Dr Rikke Viggers and

colleagues of Aalborg University Hospital, Denmark, compared diabetes

rates among those prescribed alendronate - used to help strengthen bones

and reduce the risk of a fracture - with those not taking the treatment.

Hospital records were used to identify people with Type 2 diabetes in

Denmark between 2008 and 2018, with prescription records determining

whether the participants had ever been prescribed alendronate. Analysis

revealed that those who had taken alendronate were 34 per cent less likely

to have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes than those who had never

taken the drug. Taking alendronate for at least eight years could reduce the

risk by more than half (53 per cent) compared to those who have never taken

alendronate.

Dr Viggers commented "Excitingly, our research suggests that

alendronate, an inexpensive medicine widely used to treat osteoporosis, may

also protect against type 2 diabetes. We believe that doctors should consider

this when prescribing osteoporosis drugs to those with pre-diabetes or at

high risk of Type 2 diabetes."

Pumps reduce

retinopathy

Research suggests that the use

of insulin pumps by children and

adolescents with Type 1 diabetes

may be associated with a lower

likelihood of developing diabetic

retinopathy. The study's authors say

this could be due to "a decrease in

glycaemic variability or an increase

in time in range."

They noted that clinicians

should utilise diabetes technology,

such as insulin pumps, for people

with Type 1 diabetes - as well as

the protective effect on diabetic

retinopathy, the study also found

that those using insulin pumps also

had significantly fewer admissions

for diabetic ketoacidosis than those

who did not use the technology.

Biocorp and Novo Nordisk are

collaborating to develop and

distribute a smart add-on device for

the Novo Nordisk FlexTouch pen.

Mallya, a Bluetooth-enabled smart

add-on device for pen injectors,

collects the dose and time of each

injection and transfers information in

real-time to a companion software.

Most Novo Nordisk's insulins are

offered with the FlexTouch pen, and

a specific version of Mallya will be

developed for it, the first prefilled

insulin delivery device with no-pushbutton

extension. Due to the unique

dosing mechanism of FlexTouch,

the push button does not extend at

any dose and allows insulin to be

administered by pressing the low

injection force button. The current

Mallya device required a redesign to

meet the needs of this mechanism,

keeping its accuracy and reliability.

Novo Nordisk plans to distribute the

smart device in selected countries

upon successful development,

and Biocorp expects to ramp up

production volumes from 2022.
