Diabetes in the elderly

Diabetic Medicine : a Journal of the British Diabetic Association
G S Meneilly, D Tessier


Diabetes affects at least 20% of the population over the age of 65. Half of these patients are unaware that they have the disease. Diabetes in middle-aged subjects is characterized by an impairment in glucose induced insulin release, increased fasting hepatic glucose output and resistance to insulin mediated glucose disposal. In contrast, diabetes in the elderly is primarily associated with insulin deficiency. The presentation of diabetes in the aged is often non-specific. The elderly have an increased frequency of complications from diabetes. They are particularly susceptible to hypoglycaemia, because of reduced awareness of hypoglycaemic warning symptoms and altered release of counterregulatory hormones. Although no data are yet available from randomized controlled trials, there is abundant epidemiological evidence to suggest that adequate control of blood glucose can be expected to reduce the risk of long-term complications. A team approach is ideal for the management of the elderly patient with diabetes. Little data is available on which to base a diet and exercise prescription for elderly patients. Gliclazide appears to be the sulphonylurea of choice in the aged because it is associated with a lower frequency of hypoglycae...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
