Irish scientists are working on a breakthrough in diabetes tablets, which can separate daily painful injections into their patients.
A new RTE documentary called Bittersweet conducts laboratory tests for David Brayden, Professor of CanRAM, and a drug in his team at UCD's Veterinary Hospital.
In the past decade, Professor Brayden said there has been a huge increase in diabetes in Ireland due to an essentially established Western diet.
. The increase in diabetes is probably ten times more in the last decade, art said Professor Brayden, co-lead researcher at UCD, Advanced Drug Delivery.
”Most of them will be patients with Type 2 diabetes, and diabetes really comes from the lifestyle, eating the wrong food at the wrong time, and not exercising enough.“
He warned about the expected increase in chronic disease among young people with increased obesity rates.
He said: tahmin When one-third or half of our children have reached the twenties, they predict that they will finish obese. Obese is a fairly strict definition.
Baskı The link between obesity and Type 2 diabetes is very strong, so we know that it is putting more pressure on the system.
Lar As a child, we had been running all summer, but now children don't really participate in the PCs and on their phones all the time and if they don't have organized sports.
Var That's why there is an effort to encourage lifestyle choices in children and adults. Because children need to think about giving the right food at a very early age. Çünkü
The documentary, which is part of the joint program of NUI Galway's C DevicesRAM Medical Devices Research Center and the Galway Film Center program, will be published on World Diabetes Day Wednesday.
Typical treatment for patients with Type 1 diabetes involves daily injections, while the first treatment with Type 2 focuses on delaying the disease through exercise and diet, and then switching to the needle to focus on patients and the diet.
C .RAM Professor David Brayden and his team at UCD's Veterinary Hospital are trying to produce insulin orally because they believe the patients are more likely to use tablets than inject them.
Uz We know that as inhaled insulin is successful, we know that patients prefer other ways than injection.
Id If people with Type 2 diabetes have already gone to insulin injected into their patients, the results are better for the patient.
Ram But these patients tend to delay because it's a great psychological leap to say that I'm going to go through the rest of my life.
Ğ Even if we had a tablet for meal time for fast-acting insulin, it was a very successful success, and ultimately, tablets for long-acting insulin would have to try and avoid using all the injections we could give. “
He said that the use of nano technology or the introduction of the drug in small capsules in a capsule tablet could be placed directly into the intestinal wall and bypassed other organs.
He said: ac Patients normally receive subcutaneous injections of insulin, which means that targets outside the liver will receive high concentrations of insulin that they do not need.
Tır This will lead to side effects such as weight gain in life and other undesirable events.
He added: ve We do not conduct clinical trials, but formulations can be used by clinicians and pharmaceutical companies.
”The idea will continue and test for diabetic patients.“
Professor Derek OalarKeeffe of University Hospital Galway and NUI Galway said that Bittersweet showed the burden of silent chronic illness on young patients and their families.
He said: ın My role as a clinician is to help patients on this journey and empower them to manage their medical conditions to ensure that they can maintain their best lives using the best innovations. D
Suvi Coffey, a child-friendly mother of Dublin, tells the documentary that Type 1 diabetes will not allow her daughter, Rosie, to affect her life.
Orum His life will generally be the same as his child's age and I think he will be stronger and a little more flexible while continuing. She's an incredible, incredible, powerful little girl. "
Bittersweet – The Rise of Diabetes will be published on Wednesday, November 14 at 11:00 AM in RTÉ 1.
