Last quote about Diabetes

Roy Taylor - Advanced Micro Devices
The good news for people with type 2 diabetes is that our work shows that even if you have had the condition for 10 years, you are likely to be able to reverse it by moving that all important tiny amount of fat out of the pancreas. At present, this can only be done through substantial weight loss.feedback

All quotes about Diabetes

Leonardo Curzio

The ties between government and media is like diabetes: It's a disease that stops you from leading a normal life. It generates such an alarming feeling that that this is how the establishment works.feedback

Clifford Saper

I would suggest that for humans, staying up late, watching video screens with high levels of blue light and eating high fat foods, is potentially a major cause of obesity and diabetes.feedback

Jonathan Valabhji

Only this month PHE published a report which makes clear, thanks to improved NHS care, the risk for any individual with diabetes suffering a major amputation has actually fallen significantly. Nearly 2.5 million adults and children diagnosed with diabetes will also benefit from around £42 million of additional national funding, some of which will go towards advancing care and treatment and improving access to multi-disciplinary foot care teams in 50 parts of the country.feedback

Dan Howart

The record rates of diabetes-related amputations we're seeing are being largely fuelled by increasing numbers of people developing diabetes. This is in part linked to the growing number of people living with Type 2 diabetes, which is closely linked to obesity and so, in most cases, can be prevented by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.feedback

Tam Fry

People are losing limbs and going blind because of diabetes. Successive governments have done nothing to reduce levels of obesity in the UK and we are now seeing the tragic consequences. I am left numb with fury that we have got to this stage because we failed to tackle obesity.feedback

Thomas Barber

Every day millions of internet users ask Google life’s most difficult questions, big and small. Our writers answer some of the commonest queries. ‘Cause” is a strong word. It means that A results in B happening. Causality is also surprisingly difficult to prove. Most medical studies only show association between A and B, while causality often remains speculative and frustratingly elusive. Obesity and diabetes are no exception.feedback

Mike Lean

Virtually everyone with type 2 diabetes is two or three stone [12-19kg] above their ideal weight. One of the great tragedies is that we've known this for about a hundred years and all the treatments have ever done is reduce the blood sugar – this is the consequence, but what drives it is the weight.feedback

Susan Collins

I have a number of serious reservations about it. We already have a problem under the Affordable Care Act with the cost of premiums and deductibles. And finally I'm very concerned about the erosion of protections for people with preexisting conditions – like asthma, arthritis, cancer and diabetes – and what it would mean for them.feedback

Giuliana Ingegneri

My dad helps out with the family carpet cleaning business so the flexible hours work well for him. He also has diabetes so it's important he can work when he wants so he can attend his medical appointments. Sometimes he will work 20 hours a day and earn around £300 and on others he will only make £8 a day.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

This plan is not a good thing. His supporters say, Well he's a doctor and you're not, what do you know?' To them I say, all of these very reputable associations – American Diabetes Association, American Medical Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, the list goes on and on – all of these groups populated by doctors say this health care bill is bad, they're against it. We haven't seen this many people come forward to speak out against a bill since Cosby.feedback

Dan Howarth - Broccoli

Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to harrowing complications, so preventing it from developing in those at higher risk is hugely important. We welcome these updated guidelines from NICE, which recognise the importance of preventing the condition, and the serious harm it causes to those living with it.feedback

Tam Fry

Diabetes is threatening to bankrupt the NHS so we urgently have to do something about it. Referring high risk patients to slimming classes and getting them to improve their diet is crucial. It will cost upfront but it is an investment in the future. The benefit of reducing type 2 diabetes and the obesity epidemic is extremely worthwhile, both from a health and financial perspective.feedback

Mark Baker

We know that helping someone to make simple changes to their diet and exercise levels can significantly reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And that this approach is a cost-effective way of managing an illness that currently costs the NHS around £8.8 billion a year. We need to make sure that the people most at risk have access to the care they need. This is why this updated guidance from NICE is so important, it will help NHS England and Public Health England to prioritise when necessary.feedback

Emilia Papakonstantinou

Our 24-week weight maintenance study showed that using a six-meal pattern instead of three-meal, while containing the same overall calories, improved blood sugar control and reduced hunger in obese people with prediabetes or full-blown diabetes. These results suggest that increased frequency of meals, consumed at regular times, may be a useful tool for doctors treating subjects with obesity and diabetes or prediabetes, especially those who are reluctant or unsuccessful dieters.feedback

Roy Taylor - Advanced Micro Devices

It was associated with no hunger and no tiredness in most people, but with rapidly increased wellbeing.feedback

Larry King

When I had my heart attack and was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes [in 1987] and prostate cancer [in 1999,] I talked about it and felt that I helped a lot of people. I want people to make sure to get annual x-rays.feedback

Adam Hulman

Having an obese wife increases a man's risk of diabetes over and above the effect of his own obesity level, while among women, having an obese husband gives no additional diabetes risk beyond that of her own obesity level. Our results indicate that on finding obesity in a person, screening of their spouse for diabetes may be justified. Recognising shared risk between spouses may improve diabetes detection and motivate couples to increase collaborative efforts to eat more healthily and boost their activity levels.feedback

Emma Elvin

This is a small study with interesting results, but it doesn't provide strong evidence that artificial sweeteners increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. We need to see the results of larger trials testing in settings more true to real life before we'll know more. Consuming lots of sugary foods and drinks is very damaging to overall health and can increase risk of type 2 diabetes. We would advise people to reduce their intakes of sugar, and artificial sweeteners could be an option to help some people achieve this.feedback

Inês Cebola

Even if it is proven in the future that artificial sweeteners are detrimental for the general population, this might not be true in all cases. Type 2 diabetes arises from an interaction between environmental and genetic factors, many of which we do not fully understand yet. It is thus premature to point the finger at artificial sweeteners as isolated elements of risk. The full story will probably prove itself a lot more complex.feedback

Inês Cebola

This study addresses a very important global human health issue, as artificial sweeteners are food additives commonly used not only by patients with diabetes but also by healthy individuals aiming to manage their sugar intake. Although generally thought as safe and even beneficial, artificial sweetener consumption has actually been previously associated with weight gain and development of glucose intolerance, which can lead to development of type 2 diabetes.feedback

Victor Zammit

Increased sweetener intake may be associated with other lifestyle elements that may be more direct causes of type 2 diabetes.feedback

Adam Hulman

Obesity or type two diabetes in one spouse may serve as a prompt for diabetes screening and regular weight checks in the other.feedback

Adam Hulman

Our results indicate that on finding obesity in a person, screening of their for diabetes may be justified.feedback

Adam Hulman

In particular, men whose wives are obese may benefit from being followed more closely.feedback

Quanhe Yang

If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes, you need to keep them under control by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and taking the proper medications. Doing this can prevent most people from getting stokes.feedback

Quanhe Yang

In the US, we do have an epidemic of obesity and diabetes. One in three adults in the U.S. is obese, and that's a problem because obesity can cause high blood pressure, which is the primary risk factor for a stroke.feedback

Carlijn Kamphuis

Biking saves medical costs since biking contributes to people's overall physical activity levels, and getting sufficient physical activity prevents against many noncommunicable diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and some types of cancers.feedback

Chad Readler - Jones Day

When a drug manufacturer fails to share accurate risk information with doctors and patients, it deprives physicians of information vital to medical decision-making.feedback

George Karavoulias

She was worried because she has a pump, and a lot of people when they see the diabetes pump, they feel awkward. I have my own medical condition and so I didn't care about it.feedback

Rhonda Todd

I will try to test every patient I see who is over 35, has a family history of the disease or who is obese or overweight, which is almost everybody. We are not a healthy people anymore, technology is killing us.feedback

Aseem Malhotra

It's time for a complete U-turn in the dietary guidance. The sooner we do that the sooner we reverse the epidemic in obesity and diabetes and the sooner start improving health.feedback

Jake Nelson - AAA Chicago

What does matter is how you manage your condition – whether, for example, you have diabetes and keep your blood sugar under control to prevent a blackout.feedback

Muir Gray

We all know physical activity is good for your health but for the first time we're seeing the effects that easily achievable changes can make. By walking just 10 continuous minutes at a brisk pace every day, an individual can reduce their risk of early death by 15%. They can also prevent or delay the onset of disability and further reduce their risk of serious health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, dementia and some cancers.feedback

Kawther Hashem - Action on Sugar

Sugar-sweetened drinks such as cola are the biggest contributor of sugar in the diets of children and teenagers. Unless they are reduced, these drinks will contribute to high levels of obesity, type 2 diabetes and tooth decay.feedback

Billy Wilson

There are a few things in society right now which are worrying. Obesity and diabetes rates are up, loneliness is up, people spend more time on social media and less time with friends. It all comes back to our mission to grow a global tribe. The boot camps are the local community hub and the event is the pilgrimage when the tribe comes together. I don't pretend we are curing cancer. But I do think in our own small way we are making the world a better place.feedback

James Gangwisch

Getting enough sleep helps keep our appetite in check and is protective against insulin resistance.feedback

Stacey Simon

When kids are going to bed very late or sleeping on an irregular schedule, they may also be skipping meals, eating at irregular times, or be less likely to exercise during the day.feedback

Christopher G. Owen

Increasing sleep is a very simple, low-cost intervention. We should be doing our utmost to make sure that children sleep for an adequate amount of time.feedback

Charles N. Rotimi

So far, we have not seen this variant in non-African Americans or non-Africans. Not everyone who carries it is obese, but if you carry it, your risk of obesity is very high.feedback

Ayo P. Doumatey

By studying people of West Africa, the ancestral home of most African Americans, and replicating our results in a large group of African Americans, we are providing new insights into biological pathways for obesity that have not been previously explored.feedback

Charles N. Rotimi

Six pounds population-wide is a huge amount. If you could get Americans to drop six pounds, you probably could reduce the rate of [Type 2] diabetes by 10 percent. Dropping six pounds could make a tremendous difference in health status.feedback

Frank Hu

Our findings indicate that genetic risk of obesity can be mitigated by simply changing an eating habit.feedback

Frank Hu

Because the genetic variants for obesity are numerous, it is virtually impossible for someone to not carry any of these variants,''. However, some people may carry much fewer variants than others, but they can still become obese with an unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle.feedback

Frank Hu

As a hypothetical example, for a group of sedentary people who carry one FTO gene variant, their likelihood of obesity is 10 percent.feedback

Marc Reitman

Obesity has been increasing since the 1970s, but genes are the same. Genes can't be the deciding factor, so it must be something in the environment. Both contribute.feedback

Frank Hu

Genes may have weak effects overall, but they could have stronger effects in certain groups of people who are exposed to certain environments.feedback

Marc Reitman

It's amazingly complicated, but even the genetic variants that contribute the most have a low risk. It could be when you and I go to a restaurant, you say 'no thanks' when the waiter offers us a rich dessert, but my genes predispose me to say 'yes,' . Why are some foods addictive? Why do we still eat when we feel full? The wiring and physiology around obesity is complicated, and we are just starting to try to figure it out.feedback

Frank Hu

We looked at the risk of becoming obese for those who were not obese at the beginning of the study. Those with a genetic predisposition were more likely to become obese four years later, especially for those who consumed sugary beverages or ate fried foods on a regular basis. Although we did not specifically analyze weight gain per se, the results on obesity imply that the findings would apply to weight gain as well.feedback

Ayo P. Doumatey

Some people may have a variant of the gene that allows them to produce more. The more you have of it, the better. Individuals who tend to have more adiponectin do not develop obesity.feedback

Frank Hu

For a group of physically active people who also carry one gene variant, their likelihood of obesity would be lower, at 7.3 percent.feedback

Lisa Hollier

The next step that we took was we looked at these chronic problems, like obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes, and found that the frequency of those conditions has also been increasing in Texas over time.feedback

Justin Warner

Obesity is major public health threat and there needs to be action at all levels to reverse the trend. The Soft Drinks Industry Levy – or sugar tax – is a positive step towards reducing the amount of sugar in the nation's diet.feedback

Izzi Seccombe - Local Government Association

It is vital that the measures in the childhood obesity plan improve the health of young people, and can help parents make more informed choices about the eating habits and lifestyles of their children.feedback

Izzi Seccombe - Local Government Association

These figures show a hugely disturbing trend in the increasing number of children and teenagers being treated in Paediatric Diabetes Units for Type 2 diabetes, a condition normally only associated with adults. Obesity is usually linked with major health conditions later on in life, but already we are seeing the devastating consequences at an early age.feedback

Izzi Seccombe - Local Government Association

Obesity is usually linked with major health conditions later on in life, but already we are seeing the devastating consequences at an early age. This highlights the need to take urgent action on this major public health time bomb.feedback

Tom Foltynie

What we have shown is that there is a 3.5 point advantage in using this drug. Now if that is all you get, then that is quite trivial. But if it is a cumulative advantage – so if after two years patients on placebo were six points worse and the exenatide group were stable … then we have actually stopped disease progression and that is of enormous value.feedback

Tom Foltynie

It is not ready for us to say 'well, everyone needs to start this drug'. [But] if we can replicate these findings in a multicentre trial, especially with longer follow-up, then this can change the face of our approach to treating Parkinson's.feedback

Xiaoyang Wu

This is really flexible, We can use the skin as a platform to develop all sorts of new therapies.feedback

Xiaoyang Wu

Compared with other ways to introduce genes into humans, this is much safer and more affordable for delivery.feedback

Janne Tolstrup

Keep consumption at moderate levels, about seven drinks a week for women and 14 for men. Alcohol is associated with many diseases and conditions – at the same level where it may protect against diabetes, the risk of other diseases is increased.feedback

John Mallory - Goldman Sachs Group

What the fund was good at doing was saying, We're going to try to fill some of that gap. We're going to back some of the companies even if they don't have the same investment potential. We're going to do it at an earlier stage.feedback

Leslie Lenkowsky

The pros are the potential for larger amounts of money raised more efficiently – or a class of potential investors who will be less attracted to the world of donations than the world of investments. The negatives are the organization really has to prove that it can do things. To the extent the return is blended between social value and financial value, measuring the social value is difficult and very long term.feedback

Ellen Leake

The fund makes very quick decisions from start to finish.feedback

Ellen Leake

Certainly the downside risk would be the perception that we would take riskier bets. But stacked up against research grants, we're willing to put our money out there for the learning that comes from the investment.feedback

Ashleigh Palmer

We'll benefit enormously from their network and their know-how and the doors they can open for us.feedback

Emily Burns

While these findings are interesting, we wouldn't recommend people see them as a green light to drink in excess of the existing NHS guidelines. Especially as the impact of regular alcohol consumption on the risk of Type 2 will be different from one person to the next. Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition, and around three in five cases can be prevented or delayed by eating healthily, moving more and losing weight if you're overweight. If you're worried about your risk of developing the condition, we'd advise you to speak to a healthcare professional.feedback

Graham Wheeler

Establishing a biological mechanism for how this protective effect might work is key to understanding the findings of these types of study. In the Danish study, participants were asked to recall drinking habits only once. So participants may under- or over-report their true alcohol consumption. We also don't know how their drinking habits changed as they were followed up.feedback

Janne Tolstrup

Our findings suggest that alcohol drinking frequency is associated with the risk of diabetes and that consumption of alcohol over three to four weekdays is associated with the lowest risks of diabetes, even after taking average weekly alcohol consumption into account.feedback

Sandor Katz

In general, when I hear people talk about fermented foods as a cure for particular diseases – you know, eat sauerkraut to cure cancer, drink kombucha to cure diabetes – that's kind of a trigger for me.feedback

Simon Capewell

The junk food and sugary drinks sold by these outlets make an important contribution to the UK epidemic of obesity and diabetes. Furthermore, the much greater density of fast food outlets in deprived neighbourhoods exacerbates existing, substantial inequalities in health. These trends are very worrying.feedback

Joseph F. Smiddy

We're sicker here than in Central America. In Central America, they're eating beans and rice and walking everywhere. They're not drinking Mountain Dew and eating candy. They're not having an epidemic of obesity and diabetes and lung cancer. I don't want to hurt your feelings.feedback

Joseph A. Aloi

Insulin is coming up on its 100-year anniversary. People know how to take care of their diabetes. They can't afford the insulin. They run out, they spiral out of control and end up in the hospital.feedback

Mika Kivimaki

The relative risk of A.F. associated with long working hours is of similar size as those associated with hypertension, diabetes, obesity and heart failure.feedback

Steven Mann

As well as being linked to impaired physical development, shorter attention span and lower grades, an inactive childhood means that person faces much higher risk of deadly diseases such as heart disease, cancer and Type 2 diabetes in later life.feedback

Steven Mann

Being inactive as a child sets a dangerous precedent on a number of levels. As well as being linked to impaired physical development, shorter attention span and lower grades, an inactive childhood means that person faces much higher risk of deadly diseases such as heart disease, cancer and Type 2 diabetes in later life. Money from the £415m Sugar Levy should be used beyond the school gates to plug these gaps in provision and ensure all children can access physical activity and pick up vital healthy habits from an early age.feedback

Veronica W. Setiawan

We found that coffee drinkers had a reduced risk of death from heart disease, from cancer, from stroke, respiratory disease, diabetes and kidney disease. This is an observational study. We cannot say, OK, [if] you drink coffee it is going to prolong your life.feedback

Trudi Deacon

Ketones are an excellent source of energy, especially for the brain. The only time they are harmful is when they are produced in abundance by people with Type 1 diabetes, where you have insufficient insulin and high blood glucose levels – known as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).feedback

Janice Nolen - American Lung Association

If you have a lung disease like asthma, cardiovascular problems or diabetes, or if you are a young child, a teen or elderly, you will likely be more susceptible to harm. There is also evidence that women – whose lungs are slightly smaller than men's – are more affected by pollution.feedback

Frank Westermann - mySugr

We started mySugr to solve our everyday problems and simplify diabetes therapy through smartphones. The mySugr team has filled a gap for over a million loyal users so far, and with Roche's diabetes expertise and global network, mySugr will become an indispensable companion for a hassle-free life.feedback

Roland Diggelmann - F. Hoffmann-La Roche

We are excited about this agreement, as we will be able to offer seamlessly accessible patient solutions within an open platform to better respond to the unmet needs of people with diabetes. Our aim is to support people with diabetes to spend more time in their ideal glucose target range and improve their quality of life.feedback

Susan Levin

Maternal diets high in plant foods may reduce risk of complications, including gestational diabetes.feedback

Mark W. Warner

One-off carve outs…are we only going to deal with opioids? Are we also going to deal with alcohol? Are we also going to deal with other drug addictions? What about cancer? What about diabetes?feedback

Francesco Rubino

In many patients, blood sugar levels go back to normal within days. About 50 per cent of patients are diabetes free after these procedures. The remaining people demonstrate big improvements of blood sugar control and can drastically reduce their dependence on insulin or other medication.feedback

Francesco Rubino

In many patients, blood sugar levels go back to normal within days, long before declines in fat levels or weight.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I have a small condition about my blood pressure, related to my diabetes. Thank God, I'm well now.feedback

Tracy Watts

Preventive care is excluded from the deductible. ... Employers would love to see drugs associated with chronic conditions, like meds for diabetes or high blood pressure, excluded.feedback

Diane Abbott

Everyone who has type 2 diabetes knows it is a perfectly manageable condition.feedback

Stephen Furst

The doctors told me that amputation might be the only way to stop the spreading infection.feedback

Stephen Furst

The way to deal with the devil of obesity and diabetes is literally one day at a time. When I achieved my weight goal, I bought myself a bracelet inscribed with the following 12-Step prayer: 'God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.' The magic is you can change more things than you could ever dream of.feedback

Andrew Stokes

Even if we were to dramatically step up prevention efforts tomorrow, there is a generation of children, over 100 million globally, that will likely have to grapple their entire lives with weight-related diseases, such as diabetes and heart diseases and also face higher rates of premature mortality.feedback

Ashkan Afshin

Most of the obese people are dying because of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The change in physical activity preceded the global increase in obesity. We have more processed food, more energy-dense food, more intense marketing of food products, and these products are more available and more accessible. The food environment seems to be the main driver of obesity. . It is all very nice to talk about the need to eat less unhealthy foods and more healthy foods.feedback

Martin Neovius

Severe obesity confers excess risk for so many other negative outcomes for pregnancy: pre-eclampsia, diabetes, still-birth. It's really not a good place to be.feedback

Stephen Colagiuri

We need to actually improve the care of people's diabetes. We know what to do in that regard it is only a matter of organizing health systems. We need to be able to educate people and the general public to know whether that is the increased risk of developing diabetes or having undiagnosed diabetes and what they can do to be screened for diabetes and then the third thing is to prevent people from developing diabetes.feedback

Omar Kassaar

Excess sugar is well known to be bad for us when it comes to diabetes and obesity, but this potential link with Alzheimer's disease is yet another reason that we should be controlling our sugar intake in our diets.feedback

Diane Abbott

The first time I became aware that I was a target of a national campaign was when people in marginals in the north were WhatsApping me to say there were ad vans talking about me, with a picture of me and Jeremy on. Then there were these targeted Facebook ads. There was one which was a mashup ad which made it sound as if I supported al Qaida. We did contemplate taking legal action.feedback

Stephen Gitelman

We just wanted to get a sense if this showed some benefit in adults so we could get to the target population in kids. The conservative estimate is that beta cell function was maybe 19 percent better at one year. So it's not a slam-dunk home run.feedback

Stephen Gitelman

On average the people that got the medicine used less insulin.feedback

Andrew Rakeman

It's taking an old drug and repurposing it for a new use. This definitely does not show that Gleevec is curing type 1 diabetes.feedback

Andrew Rakeman

That would be one potential pathway -- to use the drug to try to get in as early as possible when there are still as many beta cells remaining as possible and to slow down progression and potentially even keep people off insulin. It's estimated that people at the time they are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes that they have anywhere between 10 and 15 or maybe even 40 percent of their beta cells still remaining. Some people maintain beta cell function for years. We used to think all or nearly all of the beta cells are destroyed very rapidly.feedback

Azeem Majeed

The risk of death and diseases increases as your weight increases. People who are overweight are at high risk of mortality and other diseases [beyond obesity itself]. People often assume you need to be really fat to be at risk. But once you hit a BMI of 25, your risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer all begin to increase.feedback

Angela Bassett

You're a prize. Think well of yourself. Every one is, but you are one and don't forget.feedback

Angela Bassett

I think it's extremely important. It's life and death. Whether you can see a doctor whether you can get your medication whether you can afford it.feedback

Angela Bassett

It's thrilling you know, it's all new to me, the whole super hero and huge franchise [movies]. It was cast from actors from all over the globe. I think that fans have been asking for it, looking for it, expecting it, and you're going to be satisfied.feedback

Angela Bassett

That's another one. I'm like what's going on? I love it, it's thrilling.feedback

Angela Bassett

My mother had Type 2 diabetes as well as her brother, her eldest brother. At that time we were unaware about this link, this connection between Type 2 diabetes and heart disease which is what she passed from.feedback

Diane Abbott

I am not sure what colour I can add. I have always enjoyed good health until the last few years. And diabetes, in itself, would not stop me doing Women's Hour. I am worried about telling untruths about my health which are easily disproved.feedback

Kasia Lipska

We can't predict what happens to people just based on the mechanisms of these drugs. We have to study large groups of patients and examine what drugs reduce complications of diabetes such as heart attacks, and in which patients. I tell them, this is what we know and this is what we don't know.feedback

John B. Buse

I have patients who flip out if their A1C level is above seven. Some are desperate to get it to six. I try to talk them down, but sometimes I fail.feedback

Vito Ciaccia

They were always upping the dosage of drugs, wanting to get to seven. One doctor was very adamant and very demanding. He told me if I didn't do what he said, I would not be here much longer.feedback

Vikram Singh - Glooko

From a business model perspective, I think that Amazon Alexa could do a lot to bring their Echo devices into the enterprise chronic care management space. That takes it away from just being a consumer device.feedback

Vikram Singh - Glooko

We've heard a lot from Apple and Google, especially about hardware. We were more surprised to hear from Amazon.feedback

Teemu Niiranen

Especially staying lean and avoiding diabetes seemed to be very important. This association is thought to be mainly caused by the excess inflammation and neurohormonal imbalances associated with obesity and diabetes.feedback

Todd Hembree

Every life flight that we have to take to save an addicted child or treat an overdose, that's a cancer treatment that we don't have money for. That's diabetes treatment that we don't have money for. You don't have to be addicted to opioids to be harmed by this. The resources of the Cherokee Nation are being spent on this crisis that otherwise should be spent on our ordinary, everyday healthcare needs which are very significant.feedback

Zhaoli Dai

Increasing dietary fiber is one of the most economical ways to reduce the pain of knee osteoarthritis. And there are a lot of other benefits as well – reduced weight, reduced cardiovascular risk, reduced diabetes risk.feedback

Peter Amenta - Joslin Diabetes Center

He really took the time to get to know our patients and bond with them about his own experiences living with type 1 diabetes. It was a very special day for all of us.feedback

Jamie Oliver

It's awful, it's awful. [Theresa May] will regret it. We know the diseases that the NHS are overtly paying for now and being punished for and crucified now on cost, which is largely obesity, type 2 diabetes and diet-related diseases. This tracks from childhood. It doesn't just happen [during adulthood], it tracks from childhood. As far as I see it … the school is at the front line of the fight against obesity and diet-related disease.feedback

Rhonda Bentley-Lewis

I stress to my patients that we're not talking about a huge amount of weight, just 5 to 7 percent of one's body weight.feedback

Ujué Fresán

This study found that replacing one sugar-sweetened soda beverage or beer with one serving of water per day at the start of the study was related to a lower incidence of obesity and to a higher weight loss over a four-year period in the case of beer. As obesity carries a high risk for the development of other diseases like diabetes or cardiovascular disease, the possible effects of substituting these beverages with water is an important target to consider in future public health research.feedback

Kevin Schulman

Having a new competitor in the market would be great. Having a competitor that would potentially be transparent would be potentially even more interesting. If Amazon would know that you have diabetes or hypertension they could do a lot with that data. In principle, they could set up a marketplace where they behave differently, with different rules and different privacy practices.feedback

Emily Burns

We know that being physically inactive can increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes, and while we need to wait for the full results, this research suggests that changes inside the body could start after only two weeks of inactivity. We can all find ways to include physical activity in our daily life - even walking to work or using stairs.feedback

Samantha Katz

I think there is a lack of awareness about glucose, which is concerning to me because it impacts our bodily systems from weight loss to hormones to cardiac health.feedback

Kathryn Drennan

I think for the average pregnant women, they shouldn't be concerned about this. I think from a systems-wide level, it's a bigger concern especially with the warming climate. This is the first study I've seen looking at this particular aspect of gestational diabetes. It's a nice way to start looking at this relationship.feedback

Gillian Booth

It's compelling evidence that air temperature is tied with increasing gestational risk. That may seem like a small number, but 10 to 15 million women around the world have gestational diabetes annually and that may potentially have a big impact.feedback

Theresa May

So as well as extra money going into the NHS we need to make sure we are spending is being spent as effectively as possible with an absolute focus on patient care. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. I have never been fox hunting. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years. A new parliament will take us through to 2022 which is three years beyond the 2019 and I will be round.feedback

Theresa May

I inject five times a day, . I am a type one diabetic. That means when I eat, I have to inject insulin, which I do. I will be injecting myself four or five times a day... You just get into a routine. You depend on that insulin and you just build that routine into your daily life. The crucial thing to me is being a diabetic doesn't stop you from doing anything. Overall in the five years from 2015 to 2020 we are spending half a trillion pounds on the NHS.feedback

Theresa May

My view is that it should be a free vote for parliament so members of parliament individually should be able to exercise their view on this matter. During the Conservative Party leadership campaign, we started to see some pretty nasty videos being sent round about me. I didn't actually see any of them but I'm told it was in the realms of claims that weren't accurate. So it is a concern. But social media does bring huge benefits as well. If I am elected I will certainly serve my full term. I am pretty certain it (Brexit) can be done in those two years.feedback

Humans have excellent olfactory abilities. Freud believed that smell was part of a tension between our animalistic roots and our rational higher nature, which could be a source of neuroticism and mental disorder. Humans can follow scent trails through a park and medical technologists have been smelling urine samples for diabetes for decades. Sommeliers and perfumers do have very developed senses of smell, but this often comes about through practice and training on how to label smells that most lay people don't know the words for.feedback

These bloody politicians that are like ships that pass in the night they're not necessarily expert in anything. They've possibly never even run a f---ing business.

We wake up every day trying to invent new medicines and get them to people who are sick. This initiative… is one way people with high-deductible plans or pay cash can pay a price similar to what big insurance companies get. When people go to the pharmacy counter and have that sticker shock, often they do walk away. This, maybe, can bridge some people to fill their prescription, control their diabetes a little better. I think everyone's better off in that system.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

I would love to put us in a head-to-head to see how they do. Watson is a joke, just to be completely honest. I probably should have been more careful with my words. I have companies that we've been building and incubating for years in things like cancer and diabetes where we're bringing machine learning to the market where we've competed with competitors including IBM. I'm in the business of buying things that can grow in meaningful multiples ... over five to 10 year periods.feedback

Nancy A. LeaMond - AARP

AARP is deeply disappointed in today's vote by the House to pass this deeply flawed health bill. The bill will put an Age Tax on us as we age, harming millions of American families with health insurance, forcing many to lose coverage or pay thousands of dollars more for health care. In addition, the bill now puts at risk the 25 million older adults with preexisting conditions, such as cancer and diabetes, who would likely find health care unaffordable or unavailable to them.feedback

Maggie Fox - NBC News

Some supporters of the AHCA say it's about personal responsibility. After all, why should all the customers of a health insurance plan pay for people who wait until they are sick or injured to buy coverage? But medical groups from the American Medical Association to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) say health insurers often made up their own definitions of preexisting conditions. And they often denied coverage to people born with such conditions, or who developed them in childhood.feedback

Jennifer Reilly

Last week, the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act, which would cut Medicaid considerably and allow insurance companies to charge people with preexisting conditions significantly more for coverage. As a mom of four kids — two with Type 1 diabetes, an unpreventable, incurable and expensive disease — I am terrified that this [].feedback

These estimations are calculated based on commonly used and widely accepted heart disease risk factors. Most of a person's risk estimation is determined by age, genetics (family history and ethnicity) and other modifiable risk factors including diet, weight, level of physical activity, smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes. People with a non-O blood group type – AO, BO and AB – need to take the same steps as anyone wanting to reduce their CVD risk.feedback

Lars Fruergaard Jorgensen - Novo Nordisk

When we lift the lower end of the range it is mainly because now we are four months into the year and we have not been exposed to any change in the political environment, hence the risk is lower.

There are some experts who suggest that intermittent fasting may help with weight control, but for markers for heart disease and diabetes management, the jury is still out – especially on how healthy and sustainable this approach is.

All these breeds are members of the same species. They all have their chromosomes organized the same way – same genes, same order. It's very subtle variation in small numbers of genes that account for that very large difference in morphology that we see across breeds.

We can actually trace diseases as they move around the dog breed population.feedback

Chris Askew - NHS England

As a nation, we're consuming too much sugar. This can lead to weight gain and in turn increase our risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and other health conditions such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. It's great news that NHS England is leading by example and taking this step to make hospitals healthier places for all of us.feedback

Simon Stevens

A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but spoonfuls of added sugar day-in, day-out mean serious health problems. It's great that following discussion with NHS England, big name retailers are agreeing to take decisive action, which helps send a powerful message to the public and NHS staff about the link between sugar and obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.feedback

We certainly have an idea of what they are working on. There have been hundreds of millions of dollars spent on non-invasive technologies, but none of them have been able to achieve the clinical needs or accuracy for patients living with diabetes.

There is growing evidence that insulin carries out multiple functions in the brain and thus poor regulation of insulin may contribute to accelerated cognitive decline and potentially to Alzheimer's disease. It is not just people with Type 2 diabetes. Even people with mild or moderate insulin resistance who don't have Type 2 diabetes are at increased risk over time.feedback

People with diabetes have to manage their diabetes 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Developing remote care models is going to be the key if we're going to have some sort of impact on improving glucose control for the millions of people with diabetes. It's a much more scalable model than seeing people in a doctor's office.feedback

When diabetes started 10 to 30 or more years before a patient died, the disease may not be in the forefront of the attending physician at time of death. But still, it's hard [to get the full picture] in this day and age when health care for diabetics is divided between different practitioners.feedback

Catherine Cowie

We've been trying to promote healthy lifestyle to prevent diabetes and complications for a long time. This includes paying attention to 'the ABCs,' which are to bring down A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol. But I think this [study] is new evidence that it's important to focus on these things. It's more data to show what diabetes can lead to.feedback

Andrew Stokes

We argue diabetes is responsible for 12 percent of deaths in the U.S., rather than 3.3 percent that death certificates indicate. We hope a fuller understanding of the burden of disease associated with diabetes will influence public authorities in their messaging, funding and policy decisions, such as taxation of sugar-sweetened beverages and use of subsidies to make healthy foods more accessible.feedback

Jenkin Au - Steelcase

The evolution of technology and changing work styles have revolutionised the way we work, but they have also placed a greater strain on our bodies. Sitting statically all day can increase the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, as well as creating tension in our backs. Compounded with these health issues, workers seated in poorly designed chairs are also more focused on their discomfort, meaning they are less focused on their work.feedback

And while they don't talk about it, we lose lives – lives of good people.feedback

Louise Brown - Medical Research Council

Overall, the uncovering of this association is interesting but I do not feel that is of great help in our fight against the increasing global incidence of diabetes , unless they are suggesting that we all move to colder climates. If they have stumbled across a useful pointer that leads to appropriate metabolic research on the role of brown fat in the development of diabetes then great, but their claims are too strong at this stage.feedback

There were teenagers. There were small children. There were kids that were 10 or 12. There have been teenagers who have been under 18 but have made their own decision to not seek medical care. In the past several years they had children who died from complications from natural diseases that could have been treated. Insulin-dependent diabetes, infections like pneumonias…. They died of natural diseases. Some of them were eminently treatable.feedback

Emily Burns

We're looking forward to seeing the results in 2018. In the meantime, we encourage people with Type 2 diabetes to follow a healthy diet that is low in sugar, saturated fats and salt. We know that diet, exercise and medications can help people with Type 2 diabetes to manage their condition. We're starting to see mounting evidence that putting Type 2 diabetes into remission is feasible as well.feedback

Natalia McInnes

The research might shift the paradigm of treating diabetes from simply controlling glucose to an approach where we induce remission and then monitor patients for any signs of relapse. The idea of reversing the disease is very appealing to individuals with diabetes. It motivates them to make significant lifestyle changes. This likely gives the pancreas a rest and decreases fat stores in the body, which in turn improves insulin production and effectiveness.feedback

I'm regularly asked by workers how they can get by on less sleep but I ask them, Why on earth would you want that?' Given the cognitive disadvantages, plus the health consequences that include a greater risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and depression, there's not a single good thing about poor sleep. It's great to send people on courses and write about sleep in the employee health handbook, but what really works is when bosses stop writing emails at 11pm.feedback

Meir Stampfer

I don't view these things as either-or. My advice is to start with the Mediterranean diet because it's good for you in multiple ways – lowering risk of cognitive decline, reduction in some cancers, lower risk of diabetes – that go beyond what statins do. So, that's a great starting point. That's a colossal mistake. Quantitatively, you get more mileage from optimal exercise and diet than statins, so it's not one or the other: Everybody needs the diet and exercise, and some people, despite that, will still need statins. It's not a failure; it's not a character flaw – if you need it, you need it.feedback
