Last week in our Clinical Series we had an excerpt from International Textbook of Diabetes Mellitus, 4th Ed., looking at Beta-Cell response to nonglucose secretagogues. This text dealt with how the beta cells might be affected by more than just glucose. We are learning more about how fat. protein, and non-insulin peptides might have effects we had never thought of.

We begin this newsletter with powerful information on how these low carb, higher fat, higher protein diets may benefit A1c at the risk of aggravating other conditions. Our second item looks at using one of the peptides associated with natural insulin production and activation alone to reduce A1c and random glucose readings in type 1 patients.



We can make a difference!
