2. The effect of electroconvulsive therapy treatments on blood sugar in nondiabetic patients.
Match Strength: 11.118

There are conflicting data in the literature about the effects of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) on blood sugar. In general, glycemic control and insulin requirements show no changes over a course of treatments, although there is interindividual variation. What is understudied is the acute effect of single ECT treatments on blood sugar in the post-ictal time period. To shed more light on this issue, we conducted a simple study of blood sugar assessed by fingerstick before and 20 minutes after ECT treatments in 33 nondiabetic patients. There was a small though statistically significant rise of ... Read More »

6. Vanadium - help for blood sugar problems?
Match Strength: 9.804

AIDS: People on protease inhibitors (PIs) may develop problems controlling their blood sugar, and may also have an increased risk of diabetes. An Australian study found that 25 percent of people on PIs had problems with glucose levels, possibly resulting from PI-induced insulin resistance. Supplements with the trace element Vanadium may help control blood sugar. Research conducted during the 1990s, showed that Vanadium sulfate supplementation significantly reduced blood sugar levels. Vanadium is found in foods such as navy beans, peas, and squash. The element has some insulin-like activity, ... Read More »

8. Diel timing and frequency of sugar feeding in the mosquito Anopheles gambiae, depending on sex, gonotrophic state and resource availability.
Match Strength: 9.689

Little is known about the sugar-feeding behaviour of equatorial Africa's principal vector of malaria, Anopheles gambiae Giles (Diptera: Culicidae). It is suspected to feed on plant sugar infrequently, but possibly the timing depends on environmental circumstances, and males may differ markedly from females. These points of uncertainty were clarified in the laboratory, by monitoring both diel and longterm sugar-feeding activity in both sexes. Males fed on sugar in a nocturnal diel rhythm closely approximating non-specific flight activity. Female diel sugar-feeding patterns resembled published ... Read More »

11. Consequences Of Alcohol Use In Diabetics
Match Strength: 9.195

The hormone insulin, which is produced in the pancreas, is an important regulator of blood sugar levels. In people with diabetes, the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin (type 1 diabetes) or the body does not respond appropriately to the insulin (type 2 diabetes). Alcohol consumption by diabetics can worsen blood sugar control in those patients. For example, long-term alcohol use in well-nourished diabetics can result in excessive blood sugar levels. Conversely, long-term alcohol ingestion in diabetics who are not adequately nourished can lead to dangerously low blood sugar levels. ... Read More »

When exposed to a human host, Anopheles gambiae started probing 4 h post-eclosion, but 95% successfully blood-fed by 16-20 h with maximal blood volumes of 5- 10 microl per female. When fed sugar, the 95% feeding was not observed until 36-40 h post-eclosion; sugar meals appeared to interfere with blood meals. Similarly in An. atroparvus, maximum volumes were 10 microl when starved but only 6 microl when fed sugar. This species did not bite before 2 d, and 95% biting was by 4 d. Given single blood meals to water-kept An. gambiae, a threshold body size for oogenesis was detected. With wing ... Read More »

16. Evolutionary Legacy: Form of Ingestion, Not Quantity, Is the Key Factor in Producing the Effects of Sugar on Human Health
Match Strength: 8.755

Tens of dietary trials have been conducted to investigate the metabolic effects of sugar (sucrose) and its impact on human health. All of those studies took into account only the quantity of ingested sugar. By contrast, not a single study attempted to assess whether the form in which sugar is consumed plays a role in producing its metabolic effects. The failure of cohorts of researchers to specify how they administered sugar in their dietary trials may well explain why the results of those studies are extremely contradictory. These discrepant findings, understandably, resulted in conflicting ... Read More »

Sugar consumption and subsequent sugar metabolism are known to regulate the expression of genes involved in intestinal sugar absorption and delivery. Here we investigate the hypothesis that sugar-sensing detectors in membranes facing the intestinal lumen or the bloodstream can also modulate intestinal sugar absorption. We used wild-type and GLUT2-null mice, to show that dietary sugars stimulate the expression of sucrase-isomaltase (SI) and L-pyruvate kinase (L-PK) by GLUT2-dependent mechanisms, whereas the expression of GLUT5 and SGLT1, did not rely on the presence of GLUT2.

22. Differential effects of sugar-mimic alkaloids in mulberry latex on sugar metabolism and disaccharidases of Eri and domesticated silkworms: enzymatic adaptation of Bombyx mori to mulberry defense.
Match Strength: 8.242

Mulberry leaves (Morus spp.) exude latex rich in sugar-mimic alkaloids, 1,4-dideoxy-1,4-imino-d-arabinitol (d-AB1) and 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ), as a defense against herbivorous insects. Sugar-mimic alkaloids are inhibitors of sugar-metabolizing enzymes, and are toxic to the Eri silkworm, Samia ricini, a generalist herbivore, but not at all to the domesticated silkworm, Bombyx mori, a mulberry specialist. To address the phenomena, we fed both larvae diets containing different sugar sources (sucrose, glucose or none) with or without sugar-mimic alkaloids from mulberry latex. In S. ricini, ... Read More »

Several experimental data suggest that single sugar intake may induce heart rate acceleration and blood pressure elevation as a result of sympathetic activation secondary to insulin response and from alterations in endothelial function due to activation of oxidative stress. These hemodynamic effects might be more marked in patients with arterial hypertension or metabolic disorders, in particular in hypertensive patients with diabetes. A high-fat load may also induce activation of oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction. However, the long-term effect of repeated intake of single sugar and ... Read More »

41. Adverse effects on risk of ischaemic heart disease of adding sugar to hot beverages in hypertensives using diuretics. A six year follow-up in the Copenhagen Male Study.
Match Strength: 7.308

Non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and essential hypertension (EH) are two of several manifestations of the insulin resistance syndrome. Although subjects with NIDDM and subjects with EH share a common defect in carbohydrate metabolism, only diabetics are advised to avoid sugar. We tested the theory that an adverse effect of diuretics treatment in men with EH with respect to risk of ischaemic heart disease (IHD) would depend on the intake of dietary sugar using sugar in hot beverages as a marker. The cohort consisted of 2,899 men from the Copenhagen Male Study aged 53-74 years ... Read More »

42. Endogenous ethanol production in a patient with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
Match Strength: 7.267

The case of the gastrointestinal production of ethanol from Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a Caucasian man with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction is reported. The patient, who declared to have always abstained from alcohol, was hospitalized for abdominal pain, belching and mental confusion. The laboratory findings showed the presence of ethanol in the blood. Gastric juice and faecal microbiological cultures were positive for C. albicans and S. cerevisiae. At home, he was on oral antibiotic therapy with amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid for a small bowel bacterial ... Read More »

43. Salt intake is related to soft drink consumption in children and adolescents: a link to obesity?
Match Strength: 7.234

Dietary salt is a major determinant of fluid intake in adults; however, little is known about this relationship in children. Sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption is related to childhood obesity, but it is unclear whether there is a link between salt and sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption. We analyzed the data of a cross-sectional study, the National Diet and Nutrition Survey for young people in Great Britain. Salt intake and fluid intake were assessed in 1688 participants aged 4 to 18 years, using a 7-day dietary record. There was a significant association between salt intake and total ... Read More »

44. Effect Of Cold Remedies On Metabolic Control Of Niddm
Match Strength: 7.221

OBJECTIVE--To compare the effects of two cough syrup formulations (one with sugar and alcohol and one without) on the metabolic control of NIDDM. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS--A prospective, blinded cross-over study was performed at the Endocrinology Clinic of a U.S. Army Medical Center on 20 volunteers with NIDDM, treated with diet alone or diet plus an oral hypoglycemic agent. After a 7-day lead-in period, patients took 3-day courses of each cough syrup (10 ml 4 times/day) with an intervening 4-day wash-out period. Fasting and postprandial blood glucose and lipids before and immediately after ... Read More »

45. Prevalence Of Abnormal Glucose Tolerance In Khon Kaen Province And Validity Of Urine Stick And Fasting Blood Sugar As Screening Tools
Match Strength: 7.126

Three hundred and fifty-five individuals, 152 males and 203 females, aged between 30 and 74 years, were randomly selected in a two stage selection process from rural communities in three districts of Khon Kaen Province, Northeast Thailand. The prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) in the rural area of Northeast Thailand were measured. In addition, the validity of the urine stick and fasting blood sugar as screening tools against the two hours glucose loading test as golden standard were determined. The survey was conducted in July ... Read More »

46. Conditioned insulin and blood sugar responses in humans in relation to binge eating.
Match Strength: 7.109

This study proposed to demonstrate a classically conditioned blood sugar decrease in humans and to clarify its relevance for binge eating. Six conditioning trials were run in healthy females. The conditioned stimulus (CS) was a compound peppermint flavor/fragrance, whereas the unconditioned stimulus (UCS) consisted of 50 g of oral glucose. Control subjects received an aspartame drink as the UCS. Ad lib glucose intake, blood parameters, and subjective craving were monitored before and after conditioning. Results showed that the experimental group failed to show conditioned blood sugar and ... Read More »

48. The Management Of Diabetes In Patients With Advanced Cancer
Match Strength: 7.030

The management of diabetes mellitus is often complicated in patients with advanced cancer. Anorexia and nausea or vomiting make caloric intake erratic. The use of diabetogenic medications such as glucocorticoids can produce profound hyperglycemia. Many malignant tumors cause derangement in intermediary metabolism and abnormal glucose tolerance in up to one-third of patients. Both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia impair the quality of life of dying patients. Swings in blood sugar should be avoided wherever possible, but aggressive blood sugar monitoring also impairs quality of life. This paper ... Read More »

49. Prediction of Asymptomatically Poor Muscle Perfusion of Lower Extremities in Patients with Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus Using an Objective Radionuclide Method
Match Strength: 7.005

Foot problems are the most common cause of hospital admission in patients with type II diabetes mellitus (DM). Poor muscle perfusion of lower extremities is thought to be the major component in the pathogenesis of foot problems. We used a well-established and non-invasive radionuclide method to objectively evaluate the anterior tibial muscle perfusion of 120 type II DM patients without symptoms/signs of peripheral vascular disease (PVD) in the lower extremities. The patients were separated into groups according to the duration of the disease and condition of blood sugar control. Meanwhile, 60 ... Read More »
