Click on the link below for a free video guide to dietary supplements and herbal medicine! http://utahtexans.com/ In this video I want to share some of the worst side effects of the drug Lantus, as well as give you a few other options. Today, diabetes takes more lives than AIDS and breast cancer combined. Diabetes to put it simply is when the body has a hard time creating enough insulin to deal with blood sugar. The drug Lantus is used to treat people with diabetes by physically injecting insulin into their body. But there is a big catch. What do you think this catch is? Yep it's not the same insulin that your body creates, it's different, it's foreign. So, the million dollar question is does that matter? Take a step back from the information overload of the internet and think about this. What do you think? For example Trans fats are man made fat. Instead of normal fats being used in cells trans fats get used and this makes cells weaker and causes all kinds of problems. I would say their is some similarities. We all know trans fats are unhealthy. Know back to Lantus. One of the nasty side effects someone can experience with this drug is cancer. The journal of Diabetologia recently published 4 studies. 3 of those studies showed an increase risk for cancer when taking this drug. Another common side effect is having too low of blood sugar, this could cause trouble concentrating, irritability, trouble breathing and even fainting or possibly seizures. Also, your body being the smart machine it is may reject the drug and an allergic reaction could take place. Lastly it is an expensive drug and it will create a bunch of free radicals as it breaks down in the body. You might be wondering, well is their a better options. 1 idea you could look into would be a plant called Purslane in a 12 week placebo controlled study people with type 2 diabetes who added 180 mg of this herb had a 44% improvement in their blood sugar levels. Of course I have to talk about changing your diet, which I'm sure you already know to help with diabetes. Maybe cut back on the food that tastes really, really good. Exercise is another thing. Generally it lowers blood pressure, as well as blood sugar levels. Usually it stays lower for the next 24 to 48 hours. There are many other ideas when it comes to alternative medicine. It's less expensive, healthier no cancer or nasty side effects. Click on the link below for a free video guide to dietary supplements and herbal medicine! http://utahtexans.com/

The FDA updated the public about its ongoing safety review of Sanofi-aventis' Lantus and a possible increased risk of cancer. Lantus is a long-acting modified version of human insulin used to control blood sugar in patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. After reviewing studies, the FDA said it has not concluded that Lantus increases the risk of cancer. The agency said it is continuing to work with Sanofi-aventis and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to further evaluate the long-term risk, if any, for cancer associated with the use of Lantus.

Insulin controls blood sugar by lowering sugar levels in the blood stream. The extra sugar will be converted to fat and cholestrol. So sugar is one of the major reasons for excess fat (obesity). Excess sugar may cause diabetes, tumors, memory problems, respiratory problems, boils, acne, high blood pressure or even cancer. Cancer cells live on sugar. Sometimes you may even need insulin injection in case the body's insulin resistance levels are not normal. Dr. Berg discusses the various health problems that occur with higher levels of insulin (insulin production) that may help you understand insulin secretion and other insulin side effects that are caused mainly due to a sudden variation in insulin production in your body. These may be cardiovascular disease, PCOD, cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, belly fat, diabetes, acne and neurodegenerative diseases.

“I have heard that breast cancer can be caused by high insulin levels. What should I eat to control my insulin level? I am post-menopausal.” Dr. John La Puma’s Culinary Medicine FAQ http://youtu.be/WOuFv-vXRdk Dr. John La Puma, ChefMD® answers a viewer question on the ChefMD® Video Blog of Culinary Medicine. Today’s Question of the Week comes from Danielle in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Danielle writes: “I have heard that breast cancer can be caused by high insulin levels. What should I eat to control my insulin level – I am post-menopausal. Danielle, There are 3 things to remember about insulin. 1- Weight gain in women increases breast cancer risk 2- and weight loss reduces it. 3- Post-menopausal women with high insulin levels – in the highest third are twice as likely to develop breast cancer as women who have insulin levels in the bottom third. This, as you know, is an insulin syringe. It is for u-100 insulin. A little, of course, goes a long way. Insulin makes you hungry and fat. It may also cause breast cells to grow and become cancerous. The best way to lower insulin levels and yours are high if you have excess fat around the middle, because your visceral fat produces insulin like growth factor that promotes weight gain and fat retention. They are also high if you have acne and you are not a teenager. If you have extra hair on your body in a masculine distribution or even diabetes in your family your diabetes levels can be high. The best way to lower your insulin levels without food is to strength train, to build up muscle cells. Because, muscle cells have insulin receptors. The stronger you get, the more muscle you add, the more insulin receptors you have. That also helps empty out the muscle and liver cells that already store insulin when you do exercise and strength train. My food suggestion is to try my Miso Glazed Double Sesame Mahi Mahi (http://www.chefmd.com/recipe_display.php?id=89 ) It has just 266 calories per serving, cooks in 8 minutes and is served on a bed of spinach and baby peas and it will help to stabilize your insulin level. Make it and if you like it, teach it to someone else and leave me a comment about how you did it on http://www.chefmd.com This information is (c) John La Puma, MD, 2015, and is educational and not medical advice.

Lantus, a long-acting form of insulin, works by replacing the insulin that is normally produced by the body and by helping the body use sugar for energy. It also stops the liver from producing more sugar. This medication comes in injectable form to be given under the skin. Never inject it into a vein or muscle. Common side effects of Lantus include low blood sugar, redness and skin thickening at the injection site, and weight gain.

The injectable anti-diabetic agent Victoza treats only type 2 or adult onset diabetes – a condition that regularly plagues the overweight and obese. Due to a variety of side effects, Victoza seems best considered for those already on therapy who fail to sufficiently improve on more traditional drugs. Common side effects include abdominal discomfort and headache while less frequent but more severe reactions raise concern. Thyroid tumors including cancer, non-fatal and fatal pancreatitis and kidney failure remain worrisome associations.

The inexpensive drug generically available as metformin remains the first choice for type 2 diabetics in whom diet and exercise fail to work. Not only does it dramatically improve blood sugar levels and hemoglobin A1c, but unlike other diabetes drugs, its use may lead to weight loss and is rarely associated with hypoglycemia. When necessary it may be combined with additional anti-diabetes medicines. Additionally preliminary reports suggest metformin may act to prevent a variety of tumors and even increase survival in colon cancer.

I never enjoy saying it, but sometimes I have to: “You’re going to have to take insulin. There’s nothing else I can do to help your diabetes.” I hate doing this because I know insulin can cause swelling, weight gain, and actually slightly accelerates hardening of the arteries of the heart. Why then do I prescribe insulin? Because sometimes it’s the only thing that will bring blood sugars down. At times, all the pills, new or old, simply aren’t sufficient to get those blood sugars under proper control. High blood sugars can ultimately lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney problems and blindness. Elevated blood sugars will cause heart disease at a faster rate than any insulin might. How do doctors decide which insulin to use? The answer is difficult to say, because every doctor is different. The rule of thumb is that each patient must be dealt with individually, but certainly there are some patterns of insulin administration that work better than others. Each patient is an individual, and requires their own regimen. The regimen from one person to another may vary drastically, and so making generalizations can be somewhat difficult. However, the types of insulin are not so difficult to characterize. There are three types: Short-acting, the intermediate-acting, and the long-acting. Furthermore some of these are mixed together, trying to replicate what the human body actually makes. The short-acting insulin includes insulin aspart (Novolog), glulisine (Apidra), lispro (Humalog), and regular insulin. They last in the body anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. They usually start working in about 20 to 30 minutes, and they usually peak around 1 to 2 hours. These types of insulin are used right before, during, or even sometimes after a meal. The timing of this insulin is dependent on the patient’s blood sugars, so the physician must be consulted to decide this. They can bring the sugars down for a few hours very nicely, but there’s always a question as to whether they were will rebound higher after the effects of this insulin is gone. The intermediate insulin is NPH insulin (Novolin N, Humulin N). They usually takes about 2 to 4 hours for this insulin to get working in the body, their peak effect is around 7 to 8 hours after administration, and can last the body anywhere from 10 to 16 hours. Most commonly, this insulin is used twice a day as a basal insulin (an insulin used every day). At times, an insulin like this might be enough for diabetes control, and at times the short-acting insulin is must be used with it around mealtime. The long-acting insulins include insulin detemir (Levemir) and insulin glargine (Lantus). Both of these theoretically can last nearly 24 hours. It is the author’s opinion that Levemir usually lasts around 16 hours, and Lantus lasts around 20 hours in most patients. They don’t really peak in the body, but release a steady state of insulin into the body. As with NPH, these insulin as a basal dose at times can be enough, and at times the short-acting insulins must be used. There are also several mixes of insulin on the market. These usually combine the NPH and a short-acting insulin. They do this because many patients find themselves injecting a long-acting and a short-acting insulin at the same time. Therefore, it makes sense to have them both in one syringe so that only one injection must be done. If the ratio that’s commercially made corresponds to the ratio that’s needed, that is great, and the patients really appreciate saving themselves a shot. But for some patients, the required timing is off, or the ratio is not correct, and therefore these patients cannot use these premixed mixtures. To find out what’s right for you, please consult your physician as to the role of insulin in your diabetes treatment. Pray for those afflicted by diabetes.

This is a talk I gave May 24th 2015 at the BCCFP Family Medicine Conference. I discuss all the evidence I could find around the benefits and harms of metformin. Metformin is considered the gold standard medication for type 2 diabetes and for many years I said as much. However if one looks in detail at the evidence one quickly finds that while it does lower glucose, the evidence that it reduces the risk for cardiovascular disease and other outcomes is pretty minimal at best. Fortunately the risk that it causes serious side effects like lactic acidosis is also probably close to, if not zero, if not taken in overdose. If you think I have misrepresented the best available evidence or if I missed evidence please let me know. I have no personal issues with metformin or even other treatments for type 2 diabetes, I just want people to be aware of the best available evidence when they make decisions.

An array of relatively newly approved, expensive therapies for diabetes complicates decision making with regard to treatment. A drug preventing the body from degrading incretin helps keep levels of insulin high while reducing concentrations of glucagon, a hormone intimately linked to boosting blood sugar. With a daily cash price of about $16, it lowers hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, by a relatively small amount. Some experts wonder if the hefty price tag of these new therapies can be justified when advantages over traditional options often appear sketchy or non-existent.

A new study has discovered that insulin-producing cells can adapt and survive in patients with type 1 diabetes. The autoimmune disease targets beta cells, leading the immune system to destroy them. Those cells produce insulin in the pancreas. Researchers at Yale University, in collaboration with MIT and Harvard, found that these cells can react genetically to diabetes by expressing molecules that inhibit immune response. When that occurs, the cells revert back to an earlier stage of development, avoiding destruction. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/02/09/Study-shows-how-some-insulin-producing-cells-survive-in-diabetes/1571486663148/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
