December 29, 2009 The American Diabetes Association (ADA) revised clinical practice recommendations for diabetes diagnosis promote hemoglobin A1c (A1c) as a faster, easier diagnostic test that could help reduce the number of undiagnosed patients and better identify patients with prediabetes. The new recommendations are published December 29 in the January supplement of Diabetes Care . “We believe that use of the A1c, because it doesn’t require fasting, will encourage more people to get tested for type 2 diabetes and help further reduce the number of people who are undiagnosed but living with this chronic and potentially life-threatening disease,” Richard M

However, physicians can now deploy a wide range of therapeutic agents, singly and in combination, to help lower and stabilise blood sugar levels. Drawing on the expertise of internationally-recognised authorities in their fields, this new volume describes the modes of action of each of these types of treatment and evaluates their effectiveness.In the first section of the book, the authors review the various agents used to manage blood sugar, and the mechanisms by which their therapeutic effect is achieved: stimulating increased secretion of insulin, decreasing insulin resistance, interference with glucose production in the liver and suppression of appetite.

Adeptly collecting the research of the leading scientists in the field, Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes compares the merits of employing autologous versus banked allogeneic cell sources for generation of surrogate beta cells, and addresses tissue engineering and ways for cell protection from recurring autoimmunity and graft rejection.
