New Treatment May Help Wounds Heal Faster
By: Dr. J. Murray Hockings
Diabetics know the danger of wounds that heal slowly and often lead to infection.
That’s why a new ointment being developed at Northwestern University that helps wounds heal more quickly is so intriguing.
Partners Amy S. Paller, scientist and dermatologist, and chemist Chad A. Mirkin have developed a topical gene regulation technology that has shown to speed up healing in diabetic animals.
They combined spherical nucleic acids (SNAs) and a commercial moisturizer in order to create a way to work around a gene that is known to slow healing.
According to Dr. Paller, ”Finding a new way to effectively heal these resistant diabetic wounds is very exciting. But, in addition, this study further proved that SNAs—in nothing but common moisturizer—can penetrate the skin barrier, a challenge that other therapies have been unable to conquer.”
During their study, researchers applied this ointment to the edges of wounds on diabetic mice.
The mice who received the ointment were healed within 12 days, as opposed to the control group that didn’t receive the ointment and took a full 18 days to heal their wounds.
Just remember, while this may be a helpful way to put off a potentially dangerous side effect of diabetes for a while, the only way to ensure those side effects truly stay away is to reverse your Type 2 diabetes!

Your Pets Can Have Diabetes Too
Researchers are not certain why, but there has been a dramatic increase in the number of pets diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
When confronted with such a diagnosis, many pet owners think the only answer is to have their pet put down.
However, taking care of a pet with diabetes isn’t as hard as you may think.
The symptoms of diabetes in your pet are similar to those in humans: increased thirst and urination, weight loss, fruity smelling breath, lethargy, and fatigue to name a few.
As with humans, your pet needs to maintain a healthy weight and activity level.
But, even healthy weight dogs and cats can become diabetic.
Treatment for your diabetic pet can be diet change, proper supplementation, exercise, and possibly insulin therapy.
The exact treatments will of course vary depending on your pet’s condition and your veterinarian will guide you through the process. Regular visits to the vet will also be needed.
The long-term prognosis for your pet is good, as long as you help them manage their diabetes, they can still live a full life span!
And luckily for you, you have the option to reverse your Type 2 diabetes, instead of just manage it!
Hitting The Road With Type 2 Diabetes
It’s that time of year again – time to head out on vacation and summer fun.
There’s nothing holding you back! Even though you have Type 2 Diabetes, you can still get moving and have some adventures.
Just be sure to take a few simple steps to ensure you stay safe on your trip in addition to having fun.
Remember these tips before you head off on an adventure:
- No matter the mode of transportation, remember to keep all your medicines, supplements, snacks and testing kits readily available. That means that you shouldn’t put your supplies in a suitcase you’re going to check but rather put them in a carry-on bag so they’re close at hand.
- Make sure the snacks you pack are healthy and approved in your Help Your Diabetes plan.
- It’s a good idea to pay extra attention to your blood glucose levels while on vacation.
When traveling you may eat at different times than you usually do, so it can be a good idea to check your blood glucose a little more often than normal.
- Lastly, include a letter from your doctor stating the names and dosages of your medications and any allergies you may have.
Traveling is fun. And planning ahead can help you have a great time, despite your Type 2 Diabetes.
What’s Your Why?
Chances are, at some point in your life, you’ve listened to a motivational speaker.
One of the first things they usually teach people about accomplishing a goal is that you have to know what your “why” is.
In other words, what is the reason you want to accomplish that goal?
Knowing your why as you go through your Help Your Diabetes program will help you stay focused and motivated.
It’s an important element in any endeavor and worth taking a few minutes to think about.
Motivational speakers will tell you that your why has to be a big why.
For example, you can’t just gloss over your reason for wanting to reverse your Type 2 Diabetes. It’s not enough to say you want to be healthier, even though that’s probably true, you want to dig deeper.
Why do you want to be healthier? Do you want to be able to play in the park with your kids or grandkids?
Do you want to make sure you’re healthy enough to walk your daughter down the aisle at her wedding?
Do you want to make sure you maintain a great quality of life and don’t become a burden to your spouse or children in the future?
When you’re trying to figure out your why for reversing your Type 2 Diabetes, be willing to dig down to the core reason.
Once you’ve discovered that, hold tight to it, especially during those times when you may start to get frustrated.
Hanging on to your “why” with both hands can help you stay focused and make accomplishing your goals go by quicker and more easily.
