  • "About 1 in 3 Americans aged 50 to 75 years, or 23 million people, have not been screened for colorectal cancer as recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), according to new data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    This is a "disturbing fact," CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, said during a media briefing. "Despite research showing that colorectal cancer screening saves lives, screening rates remain far too low.""

    ""There are some data to suggest that physicians feel that colonoscopy is really the superior test, and they tend to offer that to their patients more often, and that really is not accurate," Dr. Plescia said.

    The FOBT/FIT test is "equivalent to colonoscopy in saving lives when used correctly," Dr. Frieden added. "The bottom line is, the best test is a test that gets done."

    Dr. Plescia said studies have shown that anywhere from 25% to 50% of patients would opt for the FOBT if given a choice. "The fact that we are seeing only 10% [use] leads us to believe that we need to do things to make sure people know that test is an option," he noted.

    The report includes colorectal cancer screening data for all 50 states. Massachusetts had the highest percentage of adults up-to-date with colorectal cancer screened (76.3%), and Arkansas had the lowest (55.7%). It is worth noting, Dr. Frieden said, that states with higher rates of screening also had relatively higher rates of use of both fecal tests and colonoscopy.

    "Studies show that when people are given more choices, they are more likely to get screened. We encourage healthcare providers to talk with their patients about colon cancer screening and about the choice of test," Dr. Frieden said."

    Cologuard will give people more choices, Cologuard is a much better test than FOBT and a lot less risky than colonoscopy.

    ARNA had a partner (EISAI), $88 million and zero debt before Adcom and PDUFA date. But they issued 11 million more shares (at $5.5 per share) 1 week after the advisory panel endorsed its obesity drug and a few weeks before FDA approved their drug.
    " Arena doesn't seem to need the money between now and June 27, when the Food and Drug Administration is scheduled to make a decision about lorcaserin. The biotech had $88 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter. Even if you assume the FDA might delay that decision by three months if Arena turns in extra paperwork -- a REMS or a post-marketing study -- there still seems to be enough in the coffers to make it to an approval."

    It will takes many years for BP to research and go through clinical trials. Their inhaled insulin must be also better than AFREZZA in order for FDA to approve their product. Also Insulin is a very huge market and growing year after year (there is plenty of room for competitors).

    "In most cases, celebrities are reluctant to talk openly about their medical issues (think: Kathy Bates’ recent revelation that she’d battled ovarian cancer 9 years ago, but kept it under wraps.). But these 15 celebrities have turned their type 2 diabetes diagnoses into personal missions to raise awareness, and keep the conversation going about a disease that the CDC says could affect as many as one in three adults by 2050"

    "Why should the rest of us be forced to pay through higher insurance premiums and taxes to keep them breathing for years of an unproductive, useless life?"
    AS of 2010, 25.8 million Americans have diabetes — 8.3 percent of the U.S. population. So you think over 25 million Americans are useless.

    "Dr. Krinsley decreased the mortality of a group of critically ill patients by 29.3% simply by keeping their blood sugar below 140 mg/dl at all times using insulin. This intervention also cut down the incidence of kidney failure and shortened the patients' stay in the ICU."

    Type 2 hypos- aint what it seems

    mngo1996 mngo1996 Mar 1, 2014 7:21 PM Flag

    Adjust insulin dosage and change insulin regimen such as taking insulin more than one time will reduce the risk of hypos. It is much easier to take insulin multiple times by inhaling than by injecting.

    "After-meal blood sugar spikes can create quite a quandary for anyone with diabetes, particularly during pregnancy. Research has shown that fetal macrosomia (overgrowth of the baby) becomes more common when post-meal blood sugars exceed 120 mg/dl (6.7 mmol). With post-meal readings above 140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol), the risk more than doubles from baseline.

    Fetal macrosomia can cause many problems during pregnancy. When the baby grows and develops too rapidly, it can lead to a premature and more complicated birth. It may also cause injuries to occur to the baby during delivery."

  • mngo1996 mngo1996 Mar 1, 2014 10:58 AM Flag

    "If post-meal blood sugars do rise above 140 mg/dL and stay there for a significant period of time, the consequences are severe. Prolonged exposure to blood sugars above 140 mg/dL causes irreversible beta cell loss (the beta cells produce insulin) and nerve damage. 1 in 2 “pre-diabetics” get retinopathy, a serious diabetic complication. Cancer rates increase as post-meal blood sugars rise above 160 mg/dL. This study showed stroke risk increased by 25% for every 18 mg/dL rise in post-meal blood sugars. Finally, 1-hour OGTT readings above 155 mg/dL correlate strongly with increased CVD risk."

    This is the best mealtime insulin (highest efficacy and less side effect compare to other ultra fast acting insulins).
