Consistent Use Of Diabetes Technology Across Multiple Environments Benefits Youth With Diabetes

In recent years, diabetes technology has evolved at a rapid pace, and the use of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems has grown tremendously. To foster a more active role in diabetes management among youth, professionals encourage consistent utilization of monitoring tools across multiple environments. A professional interest group presentation entitled "Diabetes Technology Use in Schools, Camps, and Emergency Rooms," focused on the use of diabetes technology for children and adolescents in a variety of settings, today at the American Diabetes Association's® (ADA's) 79th Scientific Sessions® at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Researchers’ Discovery Could Lead To Improved Therapies For Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

A new multi-institution study spearheaded by researchers at Florida State University and the University of California, Los Angeles suggests a tiny protein could play a major role in combating heart failure related to Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), the most common lethal genetic disorder among children.

In collaboration with scientists from across the nation, FSU researchers found that increased levels of the protein sarcospan improve cardiac function by reinforcing cardiac cell membranes, which become feeble in patients with DMD.

Their findings were published in the journal JCI Insight.

The condition, which typically afflicts young boys, is caused by a mutation that prevents the body from producing dystrophin, a protein crucial to the health of skeletal, respiratory and cardiac muscles. Advances in treatment for certain types of DMD-related muscle degradation have helped to prolon

Two Hours A Week Is Key Dose Of Nature For Health And Wellbeing

Spending at least two hours a week in nature may be a crucial threshold for promoting health and wellbeing, according to a new large-scale study.

Research led by the University of Exeter, published in Scientific Reports and funded by NIHR, found that people who spend at least 120 minutes in nature a week are significantly more likely to report good health and higher psychological wellbeing than those who don't visit nature at all during an average week. However, no such benefits were found for people who visited natural settings such as town parks, woodlands, country parks and beaches for less than 120 minutes a week.

The study used data from nearly 20,000 people in England and found that it didn't matter whether the 120 minutes was achieved in a single visit or over several shorter visits. It also found the 120 minute threshold applied to both men and women, to older and younger adult

Study: Apple Watch Shows Promise In Detecting AFib

Summary:

Study findings presented at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Annual Meeting showed that Apple Watch was able to accurately detect atrial fibrillation (AFib), or an irregular heart rhythm, 84 percent of the time.

Ira Galin, a cardiologist at Danbury Hospital and Norwalk Hospital, attended the Apple Watch session at the ACC annual meeting. He said although we have a long way to go in terms of reliability and accuracy, the Apple Heart Study shows that wearable devices could have a promising future in the detection and diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.

At this year’s American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting, researchers from Stanford University presented study findings showing that the Apple Watch was able to detect atrial fibrillation (AFib) in people who received an alert of an irregular heartbeat. These findings highlight how wearable devices can potentia
