How Much Protein - Carbs, Protein and Insulin - How Much Protein? Carbs, Protein and Insulin - Brad Pilon explains the surprising effect that protein and carbs have on insulin levels. _______________________________________________________________________ I always find it confusing when I read things like "Protein slows insulin levels, which you want to keep in balance to avoid weight gain." I find it confusing for two reasons. 1) I'm really not sure how you can 'slow' a level 2) I'm really not sure how they define balance. Honestly I really dislike vague terms..especially when applied to science. What I do know is that from the research conducted on sports supplements (S***ge, 2000) we know for sure that a protein/carb meal can have just as big an effect on insulin as a carb only meal. And, that as long as you are eating your insulin levels are going to go up and down...

Avoiding Dangerous Mix-ups with Insulin & Heparin (July 07) The New Jersey Department of Health and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) have each recently warned about several different ways that dangerous mix-ups can occur between insulin and heparin. Some of these mix-ups happened when patients receiving total parenteral nutrition had insulin added to their TPN bags instead of heparin. In one case, a premature infant in the NICU had a blood glucose level of 17 mg/mL several hours after being started on a TPN infusion. Despite multiple administrations of dextrose, the hypoglycemia did not completely resolve until TPN was stopped. A later ***ysis showed that the fluid contained insulin, not heparin. This infant's long term outcome has not yet been determined, and ISMP describes two similar incidents where the babies died. These kinds of errors can happen other ways. For example, two patients who were not diabetic died after being injected with insulin instead of heparin during a vascular catheter flush procedure. In a different case, a nurse erroneously transcribed a verbal order to resume an insulin drip as "resume heparin drip." And in yet another case, a pharmacist entered an order for heparin 500 units into the computer as "regular insulin 500 units." ISMP says several factors contribute to these mix-ups. First, the 10 mL vials of insulin and heparin often look similar. Both insulin and heparin are typically used every day during each shift, so these similar-looking vials are often next to each other on a ...

Insulin Production and Type1 Diabetes (Etsuko Uno and Drew Berry, wehi, 2009) This animation illustrates how insulin is normally produced in the body and how its production is destroyed in type 1 diabetes. Approximately 25 million people worldwide, many of them children, suffer from this disease. There is currently no cure for diabetes and those affected with this disease must endure daily insulin injections for the duration of their lives. It is an autoimmune disease with a genetic factor, possibly triggered by a virus or other infection. It isnot caused by poor diet and lifestyle which are the main causes of type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes Patient Education Types of insulin Diabetes Patient Education Insulin is the hormone normally made in the pancreas that stimulates the flow of sugar - glucose - from the blood into the cells of the body. Glucose provides the cells with the energy they need to function. There are two main groups of insulins used in the treatment of diabetes human insulins and ***og insulins, made by recombinant DNA technology. The concentration of most insulins available in the United States is 100 units per milliliter. A milliliter is equal to a cubic centimeter. All insulin syringes are graduated to match this insulin concentration. There are four categories of insulins depending on how quickly they start to work in the body after injection: * Very rapid acting insulin * Regular, or Rapid acting insulins * Intermediate acting insulins * Long acting insulin. Diabetes Patient Education * In addition, some insulins are marketed mixed together in different proportions to provide both rapid and long acting effects. Certain insulins can also be mixed together in the same syringe immediately prior to injection. A very rapid acting form of insulin called Lispro insulin is marketed under the trade name of Humalog. A second form of very rapid acting insulin is called Aspart and is marketed under the trade name Novolog. Humalog and Novolog are: * clear liquids. * They begin to work 10 minutes after injection, * peak at 1 hour after injection, * and last 3-4 hours in the body. Diabetes Patient Education * Humalog and ...

Why You Got Fat For decades we've been told gaining and losing weight is all about the calories. Just one little problem: the research says otherwise. Diabetics undergo dramatic weight changes when they adjust their insulin levels -- and so do you. Your diet determines how much insulin your body will produce over time. From the documentary "Fat Head."
Diabetes: understanding insulin resistance When your cells become insulin resistant, they lose their sensitivity to insulin. As a result, large quantities of glucose cannot enter the cells, remaining instead, in the blood stream where it passes to the liver and is converted to fat. This process often leads to weight gain.

Diabetes PreOp® Patient Education Mixing Insulin Diabetes Patient Education Your doctor or diabetes educator may ask you to mix a short-acting or clear insulin with an intermediate or long acting cloudy insulin in the same syringe so that both can be given at the same time. * The only insulin that cannot be mixed is insulin glargine. * In this example, the doctor has asked you to mix 10 units of regular, clear, insulin with 15 units of NPH cloudy insulin, to a total combined dose of 25 units. * Always, draw "clear before cloudy" insulin into the syringe. This is to prevent cloudy insulin from entering the clear insulin bottle. Diabetes Patient Education * Always do this procedure in the correct order, as shown in the following sequence. Roll the bottle of the cloudy insulin between your hands to mix it. Clean both bottle tops with an alcohol wipe.

Insulin Signaling (Signal Pathways) NDSU Virtual Cell Animations Project animation 'Insulin Signaling'. For more information please see vcell.ndsu.edu When high levels of glucose enter the blood stream, insulin is released by beta cells in the pancreas. Insulin then initiates a number of signal pathways in specific muscle and fat cells. This takes a look at the signal pathway responsible for allowing those cells to rapidly increase their ability to uptake glucose from the blood stream.
PostCare™ Diabetes Center: Injecting Insulin Storage Insulins refrigerator temperature Insulin glucose sugar blood syringe Humalog Novolog bolus Lispro Aspart Pens needles This program will demonstrate injecting insulin. The goal is to inject the insulin into the subcutaneous tissue between the top layer of the skin, the dermis and the underlying muscle layer. The only concentration of insulin available in the United States is 100 units per milliliter. A milliliter is equal to a cubic centimeter. All insulin syringes are graduated to match this concentration. Insulin syringes are available in various volumes, for example 3/10 cc, which would hold a maximum dose of 30 units, 1/2 cc to hold a maximum dose of 50 units and 1 cc to hold a maximum dose of 100 units. Some insulins are cloudy suspensions. To ensure uniform dispersion of the insulin in the cloudy suspension, roll the vial gently between your hands. Avoid vigorous shaking, which will produce air bubbles or foam and interfere with obtaining the accurate dose. Wipe off the top of the bottle with an alcohol swab. Discard the swab. Pick up the syringe and remove the needle cap. With the syringe held upright, pull the plunger back until the end of the plunger is at the mark of your dose,which in this example is 20 units. There is now air in the syringe. Check the insulin bottle to ensure you have the correct type of insulin. With the insulin bottle held firmly on a counter or tabletop, insert the needle through the rubber cap into the bottle. Push ...
