..."Thus, rapamycin/IL-2 therapy boosted regulatory T cells, but also promoted a proinflammatory environment that may have resulted in transient β-cell dysfunction," Long and colleagues conclude. "Such results highlight the difficulties in translating therapies to the clinic and emphasize the importance of broadly interrogating the immune system to evaluate the effects of therapy."

Book Review: Fran Kaufman’s Insulin Pump and CGM Guide : DiabetesMine: the all things diabetes blog

Book Review: Fran Kaufman’s Insulin Pump and CGM Guide : DiabetesMine: the all things diabetes blog | Diabetes Aust awards Kellion medal to Jose Alexander | Scoop.it

When it comes to using diabetes technology like insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, we need all the help we can get — because figuring out the nitty-gritty of fine-tuning our basal rates, using advanced features like dual wave boluses, and troublshooting sick days and time zones ain’t easy.

We’ve previously brought you reviews of such fine works as Pumping Insulin and Beyond Fingersticks (by the ‘Mine’s own Wil Dubois!), and today we’re introducing a new guidebook from one of the country’s preeminent endocrinologists, Dr. Francine Kaufman, the Chief Medical Officer for Medtronic Diabetes and a leading endo for more than 20 years. Her new book, titled Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A User’s Guide to Effective Diabetes Management, is a slim, easy-to-read guide to these essential D-tech tools.

Sensor detects glucose in saliva and tears for diabetes testing

Sensor detects glucose in saliva and tears for diabetes testing | Diabetes Aust awards Kellion medal to Jose Alexander | Scoop.it

..."These are the first findings to report such a low sensing limit and, at the same time, such a wide sensing range," he said.

The sensor is able to distinguish between glucose and signals from other compounds that often cause interference in sensors: uric acid, ascorbic acid and acetaminophen, which are commonly found in the blood. Unlike glucose, those compounds are said to be electroactive, which means they generate an electrical signal without the presence of an enzyme.

Glucose by itself doesn't generate a signal but must first react with the enzyme glucose oxidase. Glucose oxidase is used in commercial diabetes test strips for conventional diabetes meters that measure glucose with a finger pinprick....
