    Anti-adrenaline Drugs Like Clonidine May Prevent Diabetes Type I

    Peat mentioned a few times that the pancreatic damage seen in type I diabetes is caused by prolonged exposure to PUFA, as unsaturated fats are toxic to the insulin-producing beta cells in that organ. Many of the cases of new onset diabetes I occur after a period of extreme exhaustion and/or...

    Repair Of Pancreatic Beta-Cells

    Repair of Pancreatic β-Cells: A Relevant Phenomenon in EarlyIDDM Most studies dealing with the pathogenesis of IDDM have emphasized the immune assault against β-cells. In this perspective, we review the data that suggest that the β-cell destruction of IDDM depends on a balance between β-cell...

    Pregnenolone For Blood Sugar Control

    It was recently discovered that the so-called TRM3 "receptors" in the pancreatic beta cells can be activated by pregnenolone sulfate (PS) at relatively low concentrations and result in insulin release. This makes pregnenolone a potential tool for keeping blood sugar levels normal and can also...
