Science, innovation and research are the subject of great interest for people with diabetes, as their evolution depends on the prospect of progress that contributes to a significant improvement in their quality of life. Because of this, the Spanish Diabetes Federation (FEDE) in 2018 launched an innovative information and scientific research project called "Noticia ConCiencia", with the latest research on pathology in people with diabetes. As explained by Andoni Lorenzo, FED's president, "the term" conscience ", in its Latin" conscience ", shares knowledge and this is exactly what we want to promote with this project. We believe it is important to convey to people with diabetes, in a simple and close way, that science is advancing to meet their needs and improve their quality of life. "
After 12 months of this promotion, FEDE has developed a ranking with the 12 most prominent news, the one that has attracted the greatest interest in the development of artificial pancreas to control diabetes, which could become a reality in the coming years. In this sense, responsible for The Barcelona Hospital Clinic Clinic Clinic has announced the latest developments in the development of a "system designed to achieve automatic glucose control through mathematical algorithms capable of interpreting glucose and its fluctuations, co supplement the automated decisions regarding insulin infusion without patient intervention. "
In second place, information about the first drug was announced, which announced the "potential for the treatment of type 1 diabetes" as a result of the work of a group of scientists led by members of the Andalusian Center for Molecular Biology and Regenerative Medicine (Cabimer). Through their research, they have progressed to developing a treatment with the capacity to replace the pancreatic beta cell population responsible for the production of insulin; and a reduction in the autoimmune response that in people with type 1 diabetes is responsible for its destruction. As Bernat Soria, founder of Cabimer, "to cure diabetes, we have to do both: we are producing cells that replace those who do not work and stop the cause."
The third place in this particular ranking is for News ConCiencia, which is a particularly dangerous combination of diabetes and sedentary lifestyle. From the Di @ betes study, it became clear that the sedative lifestyle is more common in people with diabetes than in people without this disease, reflecting the negative role that it can play, and in the development of pathology in cases of type 2 diabetes, as well as control of diabetes, in general. Hence, health professionals recommend a regular practice of physical exercises, both aerobic and strong, in addition to healthy eating and good adherence to the prescribed pharmacological treatment.
These are just three of the 12 news items in this ranking prepared by FEDE, based on the interest shown in the information published under the ConCiencia News initiative, which can be found entirely on the FEDE website.
