Caregivers of People with Dementia Are Losing Sleep

Uma coisa boa em excesso pode ser perigosa, acreditam pesquisadores que investigam a hipoglicemia

Mayo Clinic

Para pessoas que têm diabetes, tomar as medicações e monitorar o açúcar no sangue faz parte do ritmo de seu cotidiano. Entretanto, de acordo com a nova pesquisa da Mayo Clinic, mais de 2,3 milhões dos pacientes adultos nos Estados Unidos são provavelmente tratados de forma intensa demais. Isso causou milhares de visitas potencialmente evitáveis aos departamentos de emergência e hospitalizações por hipoglicemia (baixa de açúcar no sangue).

Of Leaves and Light

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Imagine getting an entire health workup just by having your picture taken—no invasive poking or prodding, not even a pinprick blood test. That’s a goal ecologists have for monitoring the health of plants. Their cameras would be high-resolution sensors mounted on drones or satellites, capable of capturing much more than what’s visible to the naked eye.

Big brains or big guts: Choose one

Washington University in St. Louis

A global study comparing 2,062 birds finds that, in highly variable environments, birds tend to have either larger or smaller brains relative to their body size. Birds with smaller brains tend to use ecological strategies that are not available to big-brained counterparts. Instead of relying on grey matter to survive, these birds tend to have large bodies, eat readily available food and make lots of babies.
