Screening for Diabetes at Dental Visits Using Oral Blood

Posted by dlife on Thu, Feb 26, 15, 05:30 PM 0 Comment

February 26, 2015 (MedicalXPress) — It is estimated that 8.1 million of the 29.1 million Americans living with diabetes are undiagnosed and many who have diabetes have poor glycemic control. Given that each year many Americans visit a dental provider but not a primary care provider, dental visits may be an opportune site for diabetes screening and monitoring glucose control for many at-risk patients.

Now, a new study published in the American Journal of Public Health

Molecular Link between Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Reveals Potential Therapy

Posted by dlife on Thu, Feb 26, 15, 05:25 PM 0 Comment

February 26, 2015 (Newswise) — Obesity causes inflammation, which can in turn lead to type 2 diabetes. What isn't well established is how inflammation causes diabetes — or what we can do to stop it. Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered that the inflammatory molecule LTB4 promotes insulin resistance, a first step in developing type 2 diabetes. What's more, the team found that genetically removing the cell receptor that responds to LTB4, or blo

February 26, 2015 (Newswise) — A researcher at the University of Virginia School of Medicine has magnified a benefit of exercise in mice to provide a "profound" protection from diabetic cardiomyopathy, a potentially deadly heart condition that affects many people with diabetes. The discovery demonstrates the power of exercise to prevent chronic health conditions and suggests that one day some benefits of exercise may come in a pill or bottle.

"This is a proof of concept. It shows th

NYU Study: Blood from Periodontal Disease Can be Used to Screen for Diabetes

Posted by dlife on Thu, Feb 26, 15, 02:42 PM 0 Comment

February 26, 2015 (NYU) — Oral blood samples drawn from deep pockets of periodontal inflammation can be used to measure hemoglobin A1c, an important gauge of a patient's diabetes status, an NYU nursing-dental research team has found. Hemoglobin A1c blood glucose measures from oral blood compare well to those from finger-stick blood, the researchers say. The findings are from a study funded by an NYU CTSI (Clinical and Tra
