Farxiga Approved For Type 2 Diabetes News


People With A History Of The Disease Should Consult A Physician Before Using The Drug, The Fda Said.

 More serious adverse reactions included dehydration, a drop in blood pressure and fainting. An abnormally high number of clinical trial participants who used Farxiga developed bladder cancer, so the drug isn't recommended for people with active bladder cancer. People with a history of the disease should consult a physician before using the drug, the FDA said. The agency said it is requiring six post-marketing studies to further evaluate issues such as risk for cardiovascular disease, bladder cancer risk, use among children and pregnant women, and effects on the liver. The drug is marketed by Princeton, N.J.-based Bristol-Myers Squibb and Wilmington, Del.-based AstraZeneca.

Tight Blood Sugar Control Might Not Help All Critically Ill Kids news

7 In The Annals Of Internal Medicine, Is Good News, Said Dr.

 Roughly half of the children were randomly assigned to "conventional" blood sugar control, which involved infusions of insulin only when sugar levels went above a certain level. The other children received tight blood sugar control, with insulin infusions that were continuously adjusted to keep sugar levels in the normal range. In the end, the intensive therapy did not improve children's survival odds: 5 percent of kids in each group died within 30 days. But when the researchers dug deeper, they found that among children who had not undergone heart surgery, those on tight blood sugar control got out of the hospital faster -- two weeks sooner, on average. Agus suggested a potential explanation for the difference between the two groups: Children not having heart surgery seemed to be more critically ill, and might have had more to gain from tight blood sugar control, he said. Children having heart surgery are in fairly stable condition going in, and the course of their recovery is more predictable, Agus said. But children who land in the ICU because of accidents or a sudden illness are generally in less stable condition. Macrae said the reasons for the shorter hospital stay are not clear.

Mediterranean Diet Alone May Lower Diabetes Risk news

 During the follow-up, 80 in the olive oil group developed type 2 diabetes, while 92 in the nuts group and 101 in the comparison diet group did. After adjusting for other factors affecting diabetes risk, the researchers found those in the olive oil group reduced diabetes risk by about 40 percent compared to the comparison diet group. Those in the nuts group reduced risk by 18 percent, which was not statistically significant. The new research, published online Jan. 7 in the Annals of Internal Medicine, is good news, said Dr. Christine Laine, editor-in-chief of the journal and an associate professor of medicine at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. The study "suggests it is possible to reduce the risk of diabetes by changing the composition of your diet. It is another piece of evidence that the Mediterranean diet has health benefits," said Laine, who was not involved in the research.

Health Tip: Take Care of Your Glucose Meter news

People With A History Of The Disease Should Consult A Physician Before Using The Drug, The Fda Said.

 But the new study, which was published online in the January issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, suggests there might be some merit to the idea, at least for severely troubled kids. The study looked at a subset of children with ADHD who also are physically violent, meaning they're either destructive or aggressive toward themselves or others, the researchers said. "The children who participated in this trial had far more significant behavioral issues than the typical child with ADHD alone," said study author Michael Aman, director of clinical trials at Ohio State University's Nisonger Center. "These are children who are really in conflict with their communities and their families," Aman said. "They seem to be in a spiral they can't get out of." The 168 children in the study were between 6 and 12 years old with a diagnosis of ADHD and oppositional-defiant disorder or conduct disorder. All had displayed recent episodes of serious physical aggression in which they destroyed property or, at a minimum, left bruises on themselves or others. All were started on a stimulant medication -- typically long-acting methylphenidate (sold under the brand name Concerta), which is a common treatment for ADHD. Their parents got special training in how to manage impulsive behaviors.

 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration mentions these suggestions: Before use, read the instructions for both your glucose meter and test strips. Make sure you use the appropriate test strips for your meter. Always wash hands before testing. Keep a log with results and the date and time you tested, even if your glucose meter does this for you. Follow the instructions on how to appropriately clean your glucose meter, and avoid any harsh cleaners. Bring your meter with you to doctor's visits. Copyright © 2013 HealthDay .
