Science, innovation and research are of great interest to people with diabetes because their development depends on their ability to succeed, which significantly improves their quality of life. In this context, the Spanish Diabetes Federation (FEDE) launched an innovative project in the field of information and scientific dissemination in 2018 to make it known to approximately 6,000,000 people with this disorder and their families. Noticia ConCiencia ", which has recent research on pathology in people with diabetes. As explained by FEDE President Andoni Lorenzo," the concept of "conscience" in Latin "conscientia" refers to shared knowledge, and that is what we want to promote with this project. We believe that it is important for people with diabetes to move easily and closely towards science to respond to their needs and to improve their quality of life. "
12 months after this discovery, FEDE has developed a ranking with 12 most outstanding news that has attracted the greatest interest in the development of artificial pancreas for diabetes control that could become a reality in the coming years In this regard, the Barcelona Clinic of Endocrinology was responsible for the state of the art " designed to achieve automatic glucose control by developing mathematical algorithms capable of interpreting glucose numbers and its fluctuations, in addition to making decisions on insulin infusion without patient intervention. "
Secondly, information on the first drug that reported "treatment potential for type 1 diabetes" was highlighted by a group of scientists led by members of the Center for Molecular Biology and Regenerative Medicine in Andalusia (Cabimer). In the course of the investigation, they have developed treatments that can replace the pancreatic beta cell population responsible for insulin production; and reduce the autoimmune response responsible for its destruction in people with type 1 diabetes. As explained by Cabimer founder Bernat Soria, "to cure diabetes, we have to do both: produce cells that replace those who don't work and stop the cause".
The third place in this particular position has been the news of ConCiencia, which included a detailed description of the combination of dangerous diabetes and sedentary lifestyle. From the Di @ betes study, it became clear that sedentary lifestyles are more common among people with diabetes than people without this disease, reflecting the negative role that can be associated with the development of pathology with type 2 diabetes, as with diabetes control. Hence, health professionals recommend regular exercise, both aerobic and durable, that complements a healthy diet and adheres to established pharmacological treatments.
These are just three of the 12 latest news from this rating prepared by FEDE based on interest, as evidenced by the information published under the ConCiencia News initiative, which can only be found on the FEDE website.
