Pediatricians routinely advise parents of children who snore regularly and have sleepiness, fatigue or other symptoms consistent with sleep disordered breathing, to get a sleep study; this can help determine whether their child has obstructive sleep apnea, which is often treated with surgery to remove the tonsils and adenoids (adenotonsillectomy). Often pediatricians make surgery recommendations based on the results of this sleep study.
A new meta-analysis published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology has found that SGLT2 inhibitors can reduce the risk of dialysis, transplantation, or death due to kidney disease in people with type 2 diabetes.
For decades, immunologists have been trying to train the transplant recipient's immune system to accept transplanted cells and organs without the long-term use of anti-rejection drugs. New University of Minnesota preclinical research shows that this is now possible.
The Pacific's low-lying reef islands are likely to change shape in response to climate change, rather than simply sink beneath rising seas and become uninhabitable as previously assumed, new research has found.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin to control blood sugar levels. Sustained high blood sugar levels can pose a number of serious health risks, such as heart disease or stroke. Fortunately, the condition is strongly linked to diet and exercise — factors that can be addressed. One study reveals a more complicated association however.
