Oxidation – Type 1 diabetes – Children

Parameters of oxidative stress in children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus and their relatives.

Oxidative stress (OS) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of the study was to compare OS parameters in diabetic children and their first-degree relatives. Fifty diabetic children from the West Bohemian Region were examined as well as their 32 siblings (12 Boys and 20 girls) and 65 of their parents during a period of 6 months.

Thirty ealthy sex- and age-matched children studied before planned surgeries were normal controls for children, 40 healthy adult volunteers were controls for parents. OS parameters were evaluated in all participants of the study (superoxide dismutase, SOD; glutathione peroxidase, GSHPx; plasma antioxidant capacity, AOC; reduced glutathione, GSH; and malondialdehyde, MDA) and also Type 1 DM-associated antibodies (ICA and GADA). The results in diabetic children showed significantly lower GSHPx and AOC and increased MDA when compared with healthy children. Similar findings were found in their siblings but without statistical significance. It is consequently evident that decreased antioxidative protection and simultaneous free radical (FR) overproduction occur in diabetic children and that there is a similar, but not significant, tendency in their siblings. The findings warrant reducing OS in diabetic children and postponing disease onset in susceptible relatives.

Low Literacy Linked to Diabetes Complications !

TUESDAY, July 23 (HealthScoutNews) — People with diabetes who have trouble reading appear almost twice as likely to have poorly controlled blood sugar and serous long-term complications than diabetics ( news – web sites) who have no difficulty reading. A new study, published in tomorrow’s Journal of the American Medical Association ( news – web sites), is the first to show low literacy can cause health problems for people with a chronic medical condition. “Having diabetes and difficulty reading creates a double bind. Diabetes patients rely on a number of tools to manage their disease and prevent serious health problems.

For patients with low literacy, it’s as though they have received the toolkit, but not the operating instructions,” says study author Dr. Dean Schillinger, an assistant professor of medicine at San Francisco General Hospital Medical Center. “Because our health system expects patients to be able to read at a very high level, we may be leaving a lot of patients in the dark,” Schillinger adds in a prepared statement. The study included 408 people with Type II diabetes, which affects more than 16 million Americans, including 18 percent of all people aged 65 and older.

The study found that 36 percent of the study participants with inadequate health literacy had diabetic retinopathy, compared to 19 percent of the people with adequate health literacy. Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition that can be a precursor to blindness. Optimal blood sugar control can prevent retinopathy. The study found 20 percent of the people with inadequate health literacy had optimal blood sugar control, compared to 33 percent of the people with higher health literacy.

The findings were similar for other diabetes complications, such as kidney disease, amputation and heart disease, according to the study.

Coxsackie B4 Virus linked to childhood type 1 diabetes

Virus link to childhood diabetes. Diabetes is becoming increasingly common

UK scientists have found strong evidence suggesting that diabetes is caused by a virus.

The finding raises the possibility of developing a vaccine for the disease.

The researchers have discovered a marked difference between the way the bodies of healthy individuals and those newly diagnosed with diabetes respond to a virus known as Coxsackie B4.

Dr Mark Peakman led the three-year-study at the Department of Immunology at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ School of Medicine.

He said: “The implications are clear: if viruses have a proven role in the disease, there is the future possibility of developing vaccines to prevent infection and therefore Type 1 diabetes.”

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body lacks insulin, the hormone which controls the sugar levels in the bloodstream.

People with the condition have to inject insulin daily instead.

Serious form

The disease usually begins in childhood, affecting as many as one in 200 people. It is also on the increase.

As the more serious type of diabetes, Type 1 can lead to blindness, kidney failure and heart disease in later life.

The cause of the disease is not clear. However, it is most likely to be due to a complex interaction between a person’s genes and their environment.

Various studies have suggested that a group of viruses could be a trigger, stimulating the immune system to attack and ‘kill off’ the cells that produce insulin.

But until this study the evidence has been indirect and the immune cells involved unclear.

Dying patient

The research team focused on the Coxsackie B4 virus (CVB4), a bug that causes typical viral symptoms and is most commonly found in children.

Several years ago, a strain of this bug was recovered from the pancreas of a child dying from Type 1 diabetes.

Using the genetic code of the virus and the latest DNA technology, the researchers were able to grow key parts of the virus.

They then tested how the body responded to the virus using blood samples from 40 Type 1 diabetics who had been diagnosed within the last five months.

The team found that CVB4 did stimulate the immune system very readily.

However, the response of the diabetics was more pronounced.

This suggests that the diabetics had been exposed to the virus in the recent past, or repeatedly over time, and so were already primed to take action.

The research, funded by the UK charity Action Research, is published in the journal Diabetes.

Scientists have found two surprising causes of diabetes

Scientists have found two surprising causes of diabetes — a pair of genes that didn’t seem to have anything to do with the disease.

Defects in either gene cause an unusual variant of the most common kind of diabetes.

Nobody knows why. But by showing that the genes can sabotage the body’s efforts to rein in high blood sugar levels, the new work “opens up a whole new pathway that has to be explored” to understand diabetes, said researcher Graeme Bell. And that might lead to new treatments.

The vast majority of diabetes is type 2 disease, which affects about 15 million Americans. It usually develops in people older than 40, especially if they’re overweight.

In contrast, the variant caused by the genes usually appears before age 25, often in adolescence or childhood. Together, the genes may account for 2 percent to 5 percent of type 2 cases, Bell said.

Bell is a professor of biochemistry, molecular biology and medicine at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at the University of Chicago. He and an international team of researchers presented their findings in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature.

In diabetes, blood sugar levels rise out of control because the body doesn’t secrete enough insulin, doesn’t respond normally to insulin, or has both problems. Diabetes can lead to such problems as kidney disease, blindness and nerve damage. The nerve damage and impaired circulation in the feet and legs can set the stage for amputation.

The variant caused by the genes is called maturity-onset diabetes of the young, or MODY. Another MODY gene had been found before, and Bell said at least one more remains to be uncovered.

The two genes in his study were already known to scientists, mostly for turning on other genes in the liver. The genes are also active in the intestine, kidney and the pancreas, which makes insulin, but it’s not clear what they do in those organs.

People with MODY don’t secrete enough insulin to handle high blood sugar levels, and it’s not clear yet why defects in the two genes would lead to that problem, Bell said.

The work suggests that as scientists hunt for genes that make people vulnerable to type 2 diabetes, they should consider those that regulate other genes, he said.

In an accompanying commentary, John Todd of Oxford University said the findings add “an exciting new dimension” to knowledge about the biology of diabetes and to the hunt for genes linked to common diabetes.

Diabetes cure?

I am newly diagnosed diabetic. I have been told by a nutrionalist, who himself beat diabetes, that taking Chromium Complex, 200 mcg, 3 times per day with a meal can beat diabetes. My doctor also confirmed that he has heard of people who have done the same. Does anyone know of such stories where diabetes was beaten by taking the mineral Chromium? Also, anyone know of any other home remedy being used to defeat this miserable disease?

Any professional that deals with diabetics knows that there is NO CURE. You cannot BEAT diabetes. You CAN control it, but then you are a diabetic in control.

As for the supplement at hand… I take many supplements for many reasons, but I would take no supplement that touted a cure. It can only be snake oil.

As far as I know no one has ever been cured of diabetes.

If you have a gross deficit of any vitamin or mineral. Today few people ever face gross deficits.

A woman that has gestational diabetes may have all symptoms go away after pregnancy.

I can see where temporary high sugars can be caused by curable condition.

Chromium and a hundreds other items are touted as a “cure”. The only thing that ever helped me is tight control of blood sugars.

I see how some people might be able to delay the usual progress of the condition.

If anyone has a verifiable story of a cure I would like to hear about it.

Newspaper aticle on diabetes research

Diabetes cure a long way away: researchers Periodic injections may reduce insulin dependency TORONTO (CP) – The search for a cure for diabetes got a $6-million boost Wednesday but researchers could offer little hope for an immediate breakthrough.

It’s been almost 80 years since Toronto’s Frederick Banting and Charles Best received the Nobel Prize for dis-covering insulin. Today, insulin, in pill or by injection, helps regulate blood sugar in many of the 2.5 million Canadians with diabetes.

But insulin only controls the disease.

The mission is to find a cure “ASAP,” said Dr. Terry Delovitch of the John P. Robarts Research Institute in London, Ont., but he gave a “realistic hope” of 20 years.

For parents like Cheryl Render, 20 years is too long. Her nine-year-old son Jared was diagnosed at age ree with a simple urine test. His symptoms were frequent uri-nation, weight loss while eating more than normaL mood-mess and irritability.

“He’s a nine-year-old kid who resents it” Render said, adding Jared still cheats by snacking on other kids’ foods, resulting in high blood sugar that makes him sweaty and jittery and could kill him.

In diabetes, the pancreas can’t metabolize sugar and starch properly, and blood and urine contain too much sugar, which can result in convulsions or a coma. But Render became a volunteer with the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation because she has hope. Her son plays hockey and lives normally thanks to the insulin injections he gives himself three times a day The $6 million is from the foundation and the Medical Research Council of Canada.

It will go toward three years of clinical testing to find new therapies for Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes. It usually hits children and young adults whose pancreas produce little or no insulin.

Type 2 diabetes strikes far more Canadians, many of whom don’t know they have it. The pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body is not able to use it efficiently.

Based on preliminary research, a cure may be a peri-odic injection of medication. It might get patients off insulin or reduce the frequency of its use, said Delovitch.

Dr. Jayne Danska, a senior scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children Research Institute, is trying to unrav-el the genetics of diabetes, which could result in a blood test to indicate who is most likely to get the dis-ease.

She said it would be “irresponsible to promise a spe-cific outcome in a specific time,” especially when talk-ing about a cure.

Danska said it was only in the last few years that Type 1 diabetes was found to be an autoimmune dis-ease – the immune system kills islets in the pancreas- rather than a defect in the islets themselves. In contrast to diseases such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy, caused by abnormalities in a sin-gle gene, Type 1 diabetes involves multiple genes which affect a variety of cells.

Danska added Canadian researchers are connected to scientists around the world who may make a dis-covery that would speed up scientific work here.

Delovitch, who studies immune-specific therapies, said antibody injections in mice have freed them of the disease for about a year.

Genetics and the immune system play a major role in why Type 1 diabetes strikes some people and not others, so finding the mechanism or mechanisms that lead to the disease is complicated, the researchers said.

This is why humans have not been tested with anti-bodies, although such testing could be on the horizon.

Sugar is the culprit?

Diabetes was called sugar diabetes in the past.  I have articles where sugar was the culprit in diabetes.   They would publish data showing the correlation between sugar consumption and diabetes.

The fact that was ignored is a person that is developing diabetes may develop severe desire for sugars.  I have seen this happen to several people. They are starving in a sea of glucose.  No insulin. People say —SEE  They consumed a lot sugar and it gave them diabetes.

We finally seem to be getting over that but we still are trying to blame diet for diabetes.  The problem I sense is it is limiting  our effort at finding the real causes.

About the same as stomach ulcers.  The routines there was to give a very “exact”reasons for the cause of that problem.  All of them proved to be wrong.

The aversion of carbs is the speed of their action. It seems to be easier to control blood sugars with use of protein and fat.  I worry that the short time benefits may be a long term problem

I see it this way.  Diabetics have a damaged blood sugar control system.  They must limit the load on that system.  The only way to do that is to limit food input. The type of food is secondary except we need a balance to get the needs of our body.

But weight loss is a plus in most people.

Sugar free  may not mean calorie free.  Another sales gimmick

Only my opinion.  The issue is very complex and all diabetics are not the same.
