Ich lebe seit über 20 Jahren mit meinem #Diabetes. Den habe ich gut im Griff. Aber er nervt. Wieso?

Wir frühstücken mal gemeinsam, ok?

Ihr setzt Euch an den Tisch, nehmt ein Brötchen, einen Kaffee mit Milch und Zucker, einen O-Saft und esst.
Dann habt ihr noch Hunger und esst einen Joghurt und einen Apfel und fertig.
Ich setze mich hin. Ich messe meinen Blutzucker. Ich überlege was ich essen will und worauf ich Hunger habe. Will ich ein weißes oder ein dunkles Brötchen. Will ich O-Saft oder Wasser. Will ich nen Apfel
Ich möchte ein dunkles Brötchen (mehr Kohlenhydrate als ein helles), ich schaue das Brötchen an und schätze wie viele KH es hat. Ich überlege ob ich wirklich den O-Saft will. Vorteil: lecker. Nachteil: schneller Anstieg des BZ Spiegels. Ich verzichte.

@elpais_espana @abadlinan Alberto cuenta en esta entrevista que quiere esclarecer qué relación puede existir entre las experiencias durante la niñez y el desarrollo de #obesidad y #diabetes tipo II en la edad #adulta, usando enormes bases de #datos #demográficos.

#investigación #H2020 #salud #epigenética
@elpais_espana @abadlinan El desafío de @ECHO_ERCproject es encontrar las características que predisponen que alguien se convierta en obeso o tenga #diabetes, analizando incluso las condiciones de generaciones anteriores.

Part 1 - Optimal Nutrition Vs Vaccines 2 Protect Against Infectious Disease

The topic of vax’s is an entirely reductive 1. Whether ur pro- or anti-vax, it’s likely u fall into the trap 2 argue 4 or against vax’s like it’s the only game in town.

1
Vaccines are not only the most divisive issue of our times, it also tends to dominate the health conversation wrt infectious diseases. How did micronutrients get pushed aside?

Well it may have something to do w/food & supplements not being “patentable”.

2
The supplement industry is a multi-billion $ biz whereas the pharma/vax industry is a trillion $ biz. Big Pharma dominates ad budgets, politicians in Congress & has successfully established group think wrt vax’s & infectious disease.

I’ve never been a fan of group think.

Ok, time for #Tweetorialsinpsychiatry number 2.
This week not strictly liaison psychiatry but a major challenge for Integrated Care - ‘Diabetes and antipsychotic use’.
With particular thanks to @RichardIGHolt #diabetes #antipsychotics #liaisonpsychiatry #psychtwitter #medtwitter

Any errors are entirely my own.
Prevalence rates of type 2 diabetes of 2.9% have been found in people with severe mental illness (PWSMI) prior to treatment with antipsychotics (APs) vs 11.3% among those receiving treatment.

The #ACA/#Obamacare has been law for a decade. It is not and has never been insurance. It provides for the healthcare marketplace where people can shop their states' private insurance companies for affordable plans. It also provides tax credit subsidies for those plans.
The #ACA also expanded #Medicaid to cover more low income people. And created coverage for the #Medicare "donut hole." The law also stipulates that being female must be covered (it was not before the ACA) and that women must not pay more than men for the same plan, like before.
The #ACA also requires insurers to cover #PreExistingConditions like #cancer or #diabetes. The ACA charged the states with providing access to health insurance for low income people via #Medicaid.

"People are dying."

Elizabeth has witnessed the difference between the UK and US health systems. She knows the human cost of high prices. Don’t allow the US to sabotage access to meds on the #NHS.

EPIC THREAD!!!...
There has been a lot of debate on the impact of a #tradedeal with #Trump on #NHS medicine prices. Here’s a thread detailing why people are right to be worried… 1/
Firstly, the US has history. #Bigpharma spends more influencing politicians in Washington than any other industry. So the US has repeatedly used #trade agreements to force changes on countries that will boost the industry’s profits. 2/

1/ Imagine for a moment that a low carb diet wasn’t the best fix for type 2 #diabetes, obesity and metabolic disease, but instead imagine the most effective method was swimming.
Would the angry mob on twitter react the same?...........
#LCHF #Keto #T2DM
2/ If swimming was #lowcarb
“Swimming is really dangerous, people have died swimming. Any doctor who recommends swimming is irresponsible and should have their licence revoked.”

3/ If swimming was #lowcarb
“Swimming isn’t for everyone. Just because it’s worked for loads of people, you shouldn’t recommend it because some people can’t swim”

Científicos consiguen producir insulina en la piel ¡en respuesta a la luz! Os adelanto un poco más sobre esta #Biotecnoticia por el #DíaMundialdelaDiabetes. ¡#Hilo!
La #diabetes es un grupo de enfermedades en los que la #insulina no cumple su función: ayudar a las células a consumir glucosa. Esto puede ocurrir porque no hay insulina (Tipo I) o porque las células no responden a la hormona (Tipo II).
Los pacientes con diabetes Tipo I, se administran 💉 dosis de insulina en función de la ingesta de alimentos, para mantener unos niveles de glucosa estables. Esto es lo que harían precisamente las células del páncreas si funcionaran...

The greatest fallacy about living with Diabetes is that you have to be eating ONLY BEANS, PLANTAIN, Moi Moi🤦🏽‍♀️🙆🏽‍♀️! Reason why most are malnourished!

Real ‘Diabetic Diet’ is;

“Eat every healthy food. Add more vegetables. Just in fist size portions per meal.”

#WorldDiabetesDay
Patients coming to our diabetic clinic are always asked to come with their relative or care giver.

They need all the support they can get. While we don’t advice patients taking refined sugars, we however advice they have some of these drinks closeby in case of HYPOGLYCEMIC bouts
Hypoglycemia is simply a drop or more below the normal body sugar level. Severe hypoglycemia can kill faster that hyperglycemia ( seem in diabetes).

So in these attacks, patients might be sweaty, drowsy and even faint. So if there sugar level is tested and is low...👇🏽

WHO launches first-ever #insulin prequalification programme to expand access to life-saving treatment for #diabetes in low- and middle-income countries.

bit.ly/2QdOVNB #BeatNCDs
@WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO About 65M people with type 2 diabetes need insulin, but only half of them are able to access it, largely due to high prices 📈.
All people with type 1 diabetes need insulin to survive.
bit.ly/2QdOVNB #BeatNCDs
@WHO_Europe @WHOAFRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @WHOSEARO WHO prequalification of #insulin is expected to boost access by increasing the flow of quality-assured products on the international market, providing countries with greater choice and patients with lower prices.

I wanted to ask a few questions. I want you to think about each answer. Your life is in your hands.
1. Do you understand the magnitude of food addiction? Do you think it’s worse or better than say alcohol? Do you think it’s a real addiction?
Sugar addiction is very accepted and you can even feed that addiction all day at work. It would be frowned upon to drink your vodka at work, but not to eat your sugar. In fact, many bosses and places of employment even go so far as to supply you with your addiction.
Then everyone, including you, cannot figure out why productivity goes down in the afternoon. Why you need a nap in the afternoon. Is it something really serious or is it just a simple phenomenon of your blood sugar falling back down?

History of Diabetes. A thread.

1550 B.C: “Too Great Emptying Of The Urine”

First ever recorded mention of diabetes in Ebers Papyrus, written around 1550 BC, excavated in 1862 AD from an ancient grave in Egypt.

#EndoTwitter #Diabetes #MemoryLane
@JoyYWu @StanfordMed @MedscapeEndo @TheEndoSociety @Endocrine_News Around the same time, Indian physicians seemed to stumble upon a mysterious illness with "Honey Urine" which attracted ants and flies. They started to use the ants to diagnose the illness.

#EndoTwitter #Diabetes #MemoryLane
@JoyYWu @StanfordMed @MedscapeEndo @TheEndoSociety @Endocrine_News 230 B.C

Egyptian healer/historian, writer of 'On the Names of the Parts of the Human Body', Apollonius of Memphis, names the illness "Diabetes" (dia – through, betes – to go].

The Conservative Party of Canada supports a 3 year prohibition on embryonic stem cell research.

They claim adult stems cells are more promising, so let's look at their claims.

#cdnpoli #elxn43 #NeverScheer #stemcells #research #science
The Ford Government has already cut funding for stem cell research.

"Scientist working on treatment of premature babies calls move 'extremely short-sighted and uninformed'"

What are embryonic stem cells?
"Embryonic stem cells exist only at the earliest stages of embryonic development and are capable of making any cell type in the body."

1/ Today, at #ESCcongress2019 DAPA-HF trial showed amazing results. I love the complex story behind developing these novel #diabetes drugs and their impact on CVD so I'm going to share it in this tweetorial #cardiotwitter
2/ First let me start by sharing DAPA-HF results. Basically, in pts with HFrEF, Dapagliflozin (SGLT-2i) arm had 26% reduction in primary outcome & 18% reduction in CV death REGARDLESS of #diabetes. Link to tweet w/results thx to @rladeiraslopes

3/ Pre 2008, the FDA approved anti-diabetic medications based on their ability to reduce biomarkers, glucose and A1C, without the need for clinical outcome trials. Basically, anything that lowers A1c in diabetics got approved
