Diabetes and the Future

Diabetes and the Future 9May

Do you suffer from diabetes? It can be challenging and, yes, even frustrating. Luckily science, medicine and even technology are making advances that make day to day activity much more manageable. Did you know there are even apps that can help your specific needs? Apps like MySugr and GluOracle are listed as some of the top for 2017.

Shopping lists, meal plans and recipes are found with a touch of a finger. Medicalnews.com has compiled a specific list for those with Type 2 Diabetes.  According to the article:

Knowing what food to eat can make a huge difference to controlling, and, potentially, reversing type 2 diabetes. Making informed food choices can be helped by writing out a grocery list of foods that improve overall health, and benefit someone who has type 2 diabetes.

Then, there are the amazing advances made recently on the diabetes type 1 front. This exciting statement was recently released:

Researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio have found a way to cure type 1 diabetes in mice. It is hoped that the novel technique – which boosts insulin secretion in the pancreas – will reach human clinical trials in the next 3 years.

Suffice to say, that we live in exciting times that can make a very debilitating disease almost invisible. (photo courtesy of medicalnews.com)
