Pump alternative?

Another new innovation in

personalised diabetes management

has been introduced by the French

company Diabeloop. Their new DBL4pen is designed

for people who

can't or don't want to wear an insulin

pump, and costs less than a pump.

It involves an insulin pen linked

to a smartphone app connected

via Bluetooth, which operates as

a continuous glucose monitor,

measuring blood glucose levels every

five minutes. Users have to input

data about their meals and physical

activity and the app automatically

recommends the ideal insulin dose in

real-time, which can be delivered via

the pen with no more calculations to

complete.

The measured data can also

be transmitted to a doctor, nurse

or family members through the

YourLoops, a health data storage

system which can be accessed by

other people through the internet if

the patient wants to share it.

The company is working towards

a system where their software will

work with almost every insulin pen

on the market

Avos are a super food!

A study that followed more than

110,000 men and women for more

than 30 years claims to have shown

that eating two servings of avocado a

week reduces the risk of developing

cardiovascular disease.

Researchers also found that

replacing half a serving of butter,

cheese, bacon, or other animal

product with an equivalent amount

of avocado was associated with up

to 22% lower risk of heart attack or

stroke. The findings add to evidence

from other studies that has shown

that avocados - which contain

multiple nutrients, including fiber

and unsaturated, healthy fats - have

a positive impact on heart disease

risk factors. A 'serving' was defined

by the study as half an avocado.

Although these studies rely on

participants actually eating what

they say they eat, and completing

a questionnaire about it every four

years, Lorena Pacheco, a doctor at

the Harvard T.H. Chan School of

Public Health, in Boston, USA, who

led the research, said the fact the

project started in the late 1970s and

involved so many people, gave it

extra weight.

As well as data from 41,000 men

in the American Health Professionals

Follow-Up Study, the project also

included data from almost 69,000

women in the long running British

NHS Nurses Health Study.

Avocados are dense with

nutrients and are high in
