Diabetes Research Analysis - When I started my search, I found numerous sources about diabetes. However, many were irrelevant. Although I had considerable success finding information on diabetes in general, there was often inadequate information specifically concerning type II diabetes. For example, the source would group type II and type I diabetes together when explaining the effects of exercise and diet. The source became a problem because type II diabetes isn’t insulin dependent while type I diabetes is. Although the problem doesn’t seem important, it is because exercise and diet for type II diabetes focuses on lowering insulin, which is already naturally made by the type II diabetic while type I diabetics don’t even make insulin and struggle to keep insulin in their body....   [tags: Literary Review ]

Cardiovascular Effects of Diabetes Drugs - Recently I reviewed a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine by Steven Nissen which raised concerns about diabetes drugs and the resulting cardiovascular events which I think you might find interesting. I cannot say I totally agree with the method used; however, it does provide sufficient supportive information to merit significant attention which, in effect, caused the FDA to respond. The study involved the drug rosiglitazone focusing on adverse cardiovascular events.

Short-term in vitro Inhibition of Glycogen - Introduction: Overt type 2 diabetes mellitus is the most prevalent form of diabetes, accounting for approximately 90% of the 20.8 million cases in the United States. Unlike type 1 diabetes mellitus, type 2 diabetes mellitus is most commonly caused by a defect in insulin action on cells rather than by a defect in the insulin itself1. It has recently been shown that overactivity of glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3) may be implicated in the impaired insulin action2. Although GSK-3 is a distal element of the insulin signaling pathway (which includes insulin receptor substrate 1 or IRS-1), when it is overactive, this affects both insulin signaling and the removal of glucose from the blood stream by skeletal muscle....   [tags: Biology Diabetes] 1575 words

In the same decade, two scientists named Benting and Best performed another experiment to see which chemically made pancreas would do the best job in lowering glucose levels....   [tags: Biology Diabetes] 1622 words
