Medicare Continues to Put People with Diabetes at Risk

A new survey from the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) found that Medicare’s Competitive Bidding Program (CBP) significantly reduced beneficiary choice and access to commonly used diabetes testing supplies, adding to previous studies showing the unnecessary risk competitive bidding puts on people with diabetes. Certified Diabetes Educator Kellie Antinori-Lent was involved in the implementation of the survey and is available to speak on the findings.

Study Suggests New Way to Prevent Vision Loss in Diabetics and Premature Babies

Researchers at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, part of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, have identified a new molecule that induces the formation of abnormal blood vessels in the eyes of diabetic mice. The study, “Secretogranin III as a disease-associated ligand for antiangiogenic therapy of diabetic retinopathy,” which will be published March 22 in The Journal of Experimental Medicine, suggests that inhibiting this molecule may prevent similarly aberrant blood vessels from damaging the vision of not only diabetics, but also premature infants.

Whole-Body Vibration May Be as Effective as Regular Exercise

A less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration (WBV) can mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise in mice, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s journal Endocrinology.
