Reducing niacin intake can prevent obesity
A research team from China explored the mechanism underlying niacin's action on glucose metabolism, and the association between the US per capita niacin consumption and the obesity prevalence in the US. They found there is a close correlation between the niacin consumption and the obesity prevalence in the US population. The increased obesity prevalence in the US children in the past three decades may be to a large extent of a niacin fortification-related event. (2010-05-20)

NIH study provides answer to long-held debate on blood sugar control after stroke
Doctors all over the world have debated whether intensive glucose management, which requires the use of IV insulin to bring blood sugar levels down to 80-130 mg/dL, or standard glucose control using insulin shots, which aims to get glucose below 180 mg/dL, lead to better outcomes after stroke. Primary results from the Stroke Hyperglycemia Insulin Network Effort (SHINE) study, a large, multisite clinical study provide a clear answer to that question. (2019-02-07)

Investigators study effect of switching insulin medications
In 2015, CareMore Health, an integrated health delivery system and subsidiary of Anthem Inc., piloted an intervention to switch members from analogue to less expensive human insulin. Investigators from Brigham and Women's Hospital have analyzed the results of the program, finding that the switch was associated with only a small, population-level increase -- 0.14 percent -- in hemoglobin A1c, a value that falls within expected biological variation. (2019-01-29)

Is there a benefit to switching from flash monitoring to RT-CGM for hypoglycemia?
In follow-up to the I HART CGM study, which showed the benefit of real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) compared to flash monitoring for time spent in hypoglycemia among adults with type 1 diabetes at high hypoglycemia risk, researchers conducted an extension trial that assessed the effects of continuing RT-CGM or switching from flash to RT-CGM of the subsequent 8 weeks.

Researchers reveal link between hunger and mood, new study
The study used rats to examine the impact on emotional behavior of a sudden drop in blood sugar. When the rats were given a glucose blocker, researchers found they had higher levels of cortisol. They also showed signs of stress and sluggish behavior similar to a poor mood. To prove the behavior wasn't just a lack of glucose to the muscles, researchers then gave them a common antidepressant and the behavior disappeared. (2018-09-25)

Study confirms LSU Health finding of higher diabetes indicator in black children
A new study confirms the findings of two earlier LSU Health New Orleans studies that the definitive indicator of diabetes control, the HbA1c, is deceptively high in African-American children. African-American children have significantly higher HbA1c than Caucasians despite similar average blood glucose levels. A component of HbA1c that is independent of mean blood glucose may not be modifiable by changes in insulin dosing, which may lead to over-treating with insulin and provoking hypoglycemia. (2015-02-18)
