Type 2 diabetes screening recommended for men with overweight wives

According to the study middle-aged men with obese wives are likely to develop type-two diabetes than those with partners who are slimmer

How Your Spouse's Weight Could Be Impacting Your Type 2 Diabetes Risk

In a further study, the research team examined whether the development of obesity with age was different for people with and without a spouse with Type 2 diabetes in more than 7,000 men and women.

This reversal of diabetes remains possible for at least ten years after the onset of the condition.

The device's starter pack previously cost around £170, with readers for the sensors costing as much as £60, but will now be available for reimbursement via the NHS across England and Wales, NHS Scotland and Health and Social Care in Northern Ireland for people with type 1 and 2 diabetes who are intensively-using insulin.

"By studying the underlying mechanisms we have been able to demonstrate the simplicity of type 2 diabetes". Incidence of diabetes was 12.6 per 1,000 person-years among men and 8.6 per 1,000 person-years among women. As insulin controls the normal process of making glucose, the liver then produces too much glucose.

The analysis was restricted to opposite-sex couples and the researchers noted that while most people put on weight up to age 70, the results showed that in people over 55, individuals living with a spouse with Type 2 diabetes had much higher levels of obesity compared to those with no spousal diabetes.

The Counterpoint study which was published in 2011, showed that if excess food intake was sharply decreased through a very low calorie diet, all these abnormal factors would be reversed.

"Work in the lab has shown that the excess fat in the insulin producing cell causes loss of specialised function".

But this effect quite quickly wears off over time and taking aspirin just once a day has been shown to be less effective in people with type 2 diabetes and a history of cardiovascular disease.

"At present, this can only be done through substantial weight loss".

"The cells go into a survival mode, merely existing and not contributing to whole body wellbeing, but removal of the excess fat allows resumption of the specialised function of producing insulin. The observations of the clinical studies can now be fully explained".

"It was associated with no hunger and no tiredness in most people, but with rapidly increased wellbeing".

"The Phase 1 is the period of weight loss - calorie restriction without additional exercise".

This approach consistently brings about 15kg of weight loss on average.

Taking aspirin twice daily, rather than the current recommendation of once daily, could enhance cardiovascular protection in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D), suggests a small study being presented at this year's European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Annual Meeting in Lisbon, Portugal (11-15 September).

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with the mainstream "narrative", your help is needed.
