Recent Studies on Diabetes in 2018: Which One Do You Look Forward to Most?The following are recent studies on diabetes in 2018. Which one do you look forward to most? If you have any other questions on Diabetes, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.

1. Verapamil reduces blood pressure, while decreasing blood sugar level.

"Blood pressure medication" verapamil has been shown to be effective in treating type 1 diabetes.

According to American scientists' clinical experiments, verapamil can promote the function and secretion of insulin in the β cells of type 1 diabetes patients so as to reduce their dependence on insulin. Verapamil also reduces the risk of other complications such as kidney disease, heart disease and blindness, according to Fernando Ovalle, a researcher at the university of California, San Diego.

The scientists will conduct larger clinical trials to study when and what types of patients are most affected by verapamil, and to evaluate the positive effects of verapamil on type 2 diabetes.

2. Oral insulin combined with ionic liquid is very effective.

Recently, the Samir Mitragotri team developed a capsule with an acid-resistant casing. Resistant to the degradation of insulin by gastric acid, the sticky layer of intestinal wall and the tight cell binding of intestinal wall were overcome.

This capsule has the characteristics of biocompatibility, easy production, long storage period and easy cost control.

As long as the clinical trial is successful, the drug will be approved soon!

3. Vitamin D can treat damaged β cells and help diabetic mice restore normal blood sugar.

If the β cells in body are not functioning properly, the body cannot produce insulin to control blood sugar, which increases blood sugar levels and can be fatal.

Scientists from the Salk institute of biology in the United States found that BRD9 inhibitors increase the activation of vitamin D receptors and improve the survival of the β cells.

In diabetic mouse models, the combination of BRD9 inhibitors and vitamin D receptors did return blood sugar to normal levels.

In addition to playing a role in diabetes treatment, high levels of vitamin D may also reduce the risk of cancer.

Whether it's the pathogenesis of diabetes, new treatments, new technologies, or eating habits, scientists have been working hard for diabetics. And we should pay our highest respect to them.
