Type 2 diabetes is characterized by the body’s inability to regulate blood sugar levels. Researchers have not yet been able to provide a definitive treatment for this disease, but the Chinese have recently invented a method that can solve the root problem of this disease and it has been successful on mice.
By combining two treatment methods that were previously proposed for type 2 diabetes patients, researchers from Nanjing University in China succeeded in The body’s sensitivity to insulin revive and effectively treat diabetes of this disease.
Researchers for this purpose, by covering a mold with particles Platinum and a layer of Silica, produced nano scavengers that can effectively go to the liver and reduce the level of fat there. With this, the liver can function normally. Testing the method on mice has shown that this method is promising in the treatment of insulin resistance.
What is the new Chinese treatment for type 2 diabetes?
Scientists have described in an article how they put platinum nanoparticles inside silica nanoshells to go to the liver and after doing their work there. analysis become These nanoshells act as reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavengers and can carry nanoparticles.
In this treatment, one Mitochondria separator DNPME is placed inside the nanoshells and coated with lipid bilayers to enable long-term ROS removal. This treatment successfully reversed oxidative stress, insulin resistance and incomplete glucose fueling in the laboratory. Improvement of steatosis and liver antioxidant capacity was also observed in mice.
Intravenous injection of this drug also has a therapeutic effect on hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, and diabetic nephropathy, and by reversing insulin resistance, it can be promising for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Of course, more studies and evaluations are still needed to check the effectiveness of this treatment on humans.
Type 2 diabetes is associated with a disturbance in the hormone insulin, and this can lead to resistance to this hormone. Previous studies have shown that insulin resistance is caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS are unstable molecules produced by mitochondria inside cells. Therefore, preventing the production of ROS can be a suitable solution for the treatment of diabetes.
The results of the current research have been published in the journal ACS Nano.
