92 Alkaline Foods That Fight Cancer, Inflammation, Diabetes and Heart Disease

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Human life, just like all life on earth, depends on appropriate pH levels in and around living organisms and cells. For us, a tightly controlled pH level in the serum of about 7.4 – that’s a slightly alkaline range – is needed in order to ensure survival. Increasing industrialization, especially in developed nations like the United States, has lead to increasing CO2 deposition – resulting in the pH of the ocean dropping from 8.2 to 8.1, a change which has had a negative impact on marine life. Even the pH balance of the soil we grow our food in has […]

People with diabetes have a higher risk of dying if they catch coronavirus | Daily Mail Online

by health and nutrition advice journalist
People with diabetes have a higher risk of dying if they catch coronavirus – this is due to an overproduction of immune cells in the lungs, a new study finds. Experts from Wuhan University found people with high blood glucose levels have a much greater chance of catching more severe strains of the deadly virus. The team say that COVID-19 increases glucose metabolism through a phenomenon known as a ‘cytokine storm’ that leads to too many immune cells being produced.  Dr Shi Liu, of Wuhan University in China, said this spike in immune cells often happen in the lungs and […]

Researchers Develop “Ultra-Long” Insulin that Pets and People with Diabetes May Only Need Weekly | The Diabetes Site News

by health and nutrition advice journalist
There’s an exciting new type of insulin in the works that, if effective, could be a total game-changer for pets and people with diabetes. Because it only needs to be taken once a week, this “ultra-long” insulin could save diabetics time, pain, and money. That’s right—researchers are working on a type of insulin for humans that lasts much longer than other types of insulin and only needs to be administered once a week. This means people with diabetes wouldn’t have to wear insulin pumps or inject insulin into their bodies every day. It means they could go places without bringing […]

New study prompts questions about diabetes and obesity within Black churches

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Diabetes and obesity rates could possibly have a correlation with church-going among African Americans a new study suggests. The findings of the Duke University study released last month in the Journal of Religion and Health highlight two main conclusions: Black Americans who are Baptist are more likely to have diabetes than those who are Catholic or Presbyterian and Black men who go to church five or more times a week are three times more likely to be obese than those who seldom or rarely attend, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported. The researchers of the study make clear that practicing religion […]

Could COVID Cause Diabetes in Patients?


by health and nutrition advice journalist
Doctors saw the first signs of this possible link several months ago, when they noticed something unusual in a small number of hospitalized adult COVID-19 patients: They had elevated blood sugar and high levels of chemicals known as ketones (which the body uses as an alternative source of fuel when it lacks enough insulin to break down sugar). Both factors suggested diabetes. But these patients didn’t seem to have classic type 2, nor did they have the markers of type 1. Was it new-onset diabetes? A new form of the disease? Or something else altogether? Doctors are still looking for answers, […]

Insulin-Producing Cells Grown In Lab | The Diabetes Site News

by health and nutrition advice journalist
There’s been a huge breakthrough in finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes: researchers have succeeded in turning human stem cells into mature, insulin-producing cells in the lab. In people with T1 diabetes, the beta cells that produce insulin in their pancreas have been destroyed. Without these cells regulating their glucose levels, they experience spikes in blood sugar that can lead to serious health conditions and even death if left unchecked. Insulin shots help regulate their blood sugar, but that requires constant poking and tracking, on top of the fact that insulin is only getting more expensive. Diabetes can be […]
