Trigger finger, a condition in which the fingers get locked into a bent position and become difficult to straighten, is more common in those with diabetes than in the general population. High blood sugar levels increase the risk of developing trigger finger, researchers say.
For those with heart disease risk factors, daily consumption of green tea extract can reduce blood sugar levels and improve gut health by lowering inflammation and decreasing "leaky gut". Green tea extract may prove to be effective at relieving some risks of metabolic syndrome.
Reducing glucose levels may mitigate the blood sugar associated blunting of the aerobic response, a new study reports.
A new study reveals people who experience larger dips in blood sugar hours after eating end up feeling hungrier and eat hundreds of more calories a day than those who experience lower blood sugar dips.
Researchers have identified a group of glucose-sensing neurons in the ventrolateral area of the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus and discovered how they work together to prevent hypoglycemia in mice.
A new study shows how the microbiome communicates with cells producing serotonin to influence blood sugar levels. The microbiome can worsen metabolism by signaling to cells in the gut that produce serotonin. This drives up serotonin levels. The rise in blood serotonin levels causes metabolic problems.
According to researchers, feeling 'hangry' may be more than just a drop in blood sugar levels. A new study reports anger related to hunger may be an emotional response to environmental cues, personality and your biology.
