Leptin May End Diabetic’s Need For Insulin Injections
Date:9/27/2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 27, 2013

A new report and video from Health News Wires titled “Leptin May End Diabetics' Need For Insulin Injections” details how replacing insulin with leptin may be effective in managing diabetes.

Insulin, once thought of as a necessary treatment option of diabetics, may not be essential for survival or treatment of diabetes. Doctors from the University of Geneva are optimistically promoting new findings that indicate leptin, the fat-burning and appetite regulating hormone, may eliminate the need for insulin injections used to manage diabetes.

Insulin injections have been vital to survival for many diabetics, however they are also not without serious health side effects. Errors in insulin dosing have commonly lead to the condition hypoglycemia, in which glucose levels are decreased to dangerous levels - often to the point of unconsciousness. Over 90% of insulin-injecting diabetics over the age of 55 develop cardiovascular disease, often due to high cholesterol resulting from the lipogenic, or fat-producing - properties of insulin.

Administering leptin, when insulin was not present, allowed rats to survive without incident. The leptin demonstrated the first potential alternative to insulin; leptin also does not cause hypoglycemia nor does it have the lipogenic properties of insulin.

“Through this discovery, the path to offering an alternative to insulin treatment is emerging. Now we need to understand the mechanisms through which leptin affects glucose level, regardless of insulin level,” lead researcher Coppari explained.
