Type 2 diabetes is widely recognised as a cardiorenal-metabolic condition in which defective glucose homeostasis is associated with other metabolic disturbances and increased risk of cardiovascular and renal diseases, each of which can accentuate the others.1 Accordingly, a cardiorenal-metabolic perspective has been adopted in the current consensus report on the management of hyperglycaemia in type 2 diabetes.2 The report by the American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes emphasises an individualised approach that is underpinned by lifestyle measures and typically supported by initial glucose-lowering therapy with metformin.
Lower body mass index (BMI) is consistently associated with reduced type II diabetes risk, among people with varied family history, genetic risk factors and weight, according to a new study.
Blood pressure levels in patients with hypertension did not improve when patients took part in automated texting or were given electronic pill bottles.
New research published today shows that breastfeeding is crucial in preventing diabetes. The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding as the sole source of nutrition for infants until six months of age, as this helps reduce child morbidity and mortality. In contrast, early weaning is associated with both the development of obesity and Type 2 diabetes in adulthood.
[Articles] A population-based analysis of suicidality and its correlates: findings from the National Mental Health Survey of India, 2015–16
A national suicide prevention strategy that is comprehensive, using multisectoral approaches, is required to address the prevailing sociodemographic and other risk factors for reducing suicidality and suicide deaths in India. This study also has implications for other low-income and middle-income countries in south Asia, where sociodemographic factors play a crucial role for suicide prevention.
