Diabetes in Children and the Role of Micronutrients

S. Guida, A. Niedzwiecki

Journal of Cellular Medicine and Natural Health, Mar 2017

 

The steady increase in diabetes among children and young adults is one of the emerging health problems worldwide. This disease, characterized by impaired glucose metabolism and abnormally high blood glucose levels, has serious negative health consequences in young organisms, many of which surface later in life.

In addition, pharmacological treatments primarily developed and tested in adult diabetics carry health risks and are associated with unanticipated side effects when administered to children. All these concerns generate interest in developing micronutrient based approaches as safe and effective alternatives to medical drugs in both prevention and management of diabetes, especially in children.

 

This review outlines the scope of this health problem, highlights current therapeutic approaches to pediatric diabetes, and presents the latest findings on preventive and therapeutic potential of micronutrients and other natural compounds in controlling diabetes in children.

Micronutrients in mitigating the adverse health effects of air pollution

Journal of Cellular Medicine and Natural Health, Sept 2017

 

Air pollution is a major environmental risk to human health and wellbeing. According to WHO reports in 2012, ambient (outdoor) and indoor air pollution was linked to seven million premature deaths worldwide. Most of them were attributed to cardiovascular diseases (stroke and ischemic heart disease), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, and acute lower respiratory infections in children. Yet 92% of the world population lives in places that exceed the WHO air quality guidelines. On the other hand, laboratory and clinical studies indicate that a nutritious diet and/or intake of micronutrients with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying properties may ameliorate many harmful health effects caused by polluted air.

This review is composed of two parts: Part I addresses cellular and health aspects associated with human exposure to polluted air and Part II (to be published in the next edition of our Journal) will discuss potential biological mechanisms underlying the protective effects of vitamins B, C, and E, omega-3 fatty acids, and sulforaphane against air pollutants, as demonstrated in human studies.…

Micronutrient complexes support glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle cells

M. Chatterjee, V. Ivanov, A. Niedzwiecki, M. Rath

Journal of Cellular Medicine and Natural Health, May 2019

 

As a key substrate for generating biological energy in all of the body’s cells, glucose is vital for sustaining life. Numerous other metabolic processes and bodily functions also depend on a steady supply of glucose. In all aspects, optimum intracellular transport of glucose is essential for a healthy metabolism and for maintaining healthy blood glucose levels.…

Experimental & Therapeutic Medicine 2015, DOI: 10.3892/etm.2015.2631

Abstract:

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by thickened, silvery scaled patches. There is currently no cure and treatments only attempt to reduce the severity of symptoms. This study reports the case of a 36 year old female who presented to the clinic with severe psoriasis and had been treated with topical steroid cream for the past 14 years.…

Abstract:
Incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus is increasing worldwide with both environmental and genetic factors implicated in its development.   Diabetes is often preceded by metabolic syndrome (MS) and can develop in normal adults ingesting a high fructose diet.  The effect of high fructose intake in development of MS in children and adolescents is less clear. …
