The research process involves four distinct phases.

  • Phase 1 of the process focuses on evaluating to most effective plan of care or dosage of a drug for treating someone with a particular medical disorder.
  • Phase 2 comes next and involves a slightly larger group of patients who suffer from said medical condition. During this phase, patients are studied for a longer period of time in order to determine the effectiveness of the treatment plan or medication, as well as to evaluate how safe it is.
  • Phase 3 takes things a step further with an even larger number of patients. This phase also typically compares the new medication to similar medications that have already been established and approved by the FDA. Once the treatment has been approved for marketing to the public, the process moves into phase four.
  • Phase 4 involves studying the medication or treatment for an extended period of time in order to evaluate side-effects that can result from long-term use.

Understanding the Difference Between Type I and Type II Diabetes

Understanding the Difference Between Type I and Type II Diabetes

At the Metabolic Research Institute, our areas of focus and study range from growth disorders to diabetes. We focus many of our studies on testing and researching different options for a diabetes treatment. While many people are familiar with diabetes, or have at least heard the term, many do not understand the differences between the two different types of diabetes.

People who suffer from diabetes experience a number of difficulties and can even develop different diseases as a side effect. There are two distinct types of diabetes and each type should be approached differently.

  • Type I diabetes is typically diagnosed in children and young adults. According to the American Diabetes Association, only about 5% of people with diabetes suffer from type I. With type I diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is an important hormone we need to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy. This can be very dangerous however, people can manage this with insulin therapy. This allows people with type I diabetes to process the food they eat and live healthy lives. Type II- Type II diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
  • Type II diabetes causes one’s blood glucose level to rise higher than normal. The body still produces insulin however, it does not use properly. The American Diabetes Association identifies this as “insulin resistance.” This means that the body produces extra insulin to make up for the resistance however, eventually the body cannot make enough insulin to keep up with the rising levels. Like type I, type II can be treated with insulin therapy, as well as oral medications and lifestyle changes.

At the Metabolic Research Institute, we are dedicated to searching for different, more effective treatment options for both types of diabetes. We want to help people live happier, healthier lives without being held back by their diseases or ailments. If you are interested in participating in clinical studies and helping us fight these diseases, please contact us today!

Helpful Tips For Managing Your Diabetes

Helpful Tips For Managing Your Diabetes

Living with diabetes is difficult. It is a condition that affects your entire body and it forces you to drastically change your lifestyle. Managing your diabetes can be a struggle and at the Metabolic Research Institute, we are working diligently to find an effective diabetes treatment that will change the lives of thousands of people, not just in West Palm Beach, but around the world.

However, until we have discovered that treatment, we have some tips that should help you to better manage your diabetes.

  • Manage Your Glucose Levels Everyday We understand that no one likes checking their blood-sugar levels on a regular basis. However, if you have diabetes, this is critically important. Monitoring your blood-sugar levels on a daily basis is the only way to know if they are really under control. After all, food is not the only thing that affects your blood glucose levels. Activity level, medications, and stress can all affect your blood-sugar levels. Unless you check your levels every day, there is no real way for you to know for sure whether or not they are under control.
  • Always Take Your Medication Diabetes symptoms are often silent. While you may not notice immediate repercussions when you forget or neglect to take your medications, untreated diabetes can lead to heart disease, as well as other severe health complications. It is imperative that you always take your medications as directed by your doctor. Exercise We mentioned earlier that there are several different factors that can affect your blood-sugar levels. While taking your prescribed medications is the most important thing you can do when it comes to managing your diabetes, exercising is also extremely important.
  • Exercising is key to managing your diabetes Exercise helps improve your body’s ability to control its blood-sugar levels. It also helps keep your body weight under control, which is important for managing your diabetes, as well. If you are interested in participating in diabetes clinical trials in West Palm Beach, then please do not hesitate to contact our team today.

Understanding High Cholesterol

Understanding High Cholesterol

Good health goes a long way. That being said, high cholesterol is one of the more common things that patients are hearing from their doctors. Here are few things that will help you better understand how your body and your choices can affect your cholesterol level and how to notice them happening. Eating too much saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol will be one of the top reasons that we see high cholesterol levels. Saturated fat is found in meats, milk, eggs, butter and cheese, just to name a few. Trans fat on the other hand is found in packaged and fried foods.

Tied to a poor diet, your lack of physical activity or body weight could also affect your cholesterol level. Any lack of physical activity or point of overweight can raise your cholesterol, so staying active and at a healthy weight is a great way to minimize your chances of that happening. Once you hit 20 though, your cholesterol naturally starts to raise, but, it’s different for men and women. Women have relatively low cholesterol levels until menopause, while men could struggle with cholesterol until it levels off around age 50.

So how do you prevent it from happening? There’s no guarantee that you can. Staying physically active and maintaining a healthy diet are your best bet, but there is still a chance of dealing with heart disease and heart attacks. Unfortunately, these types of incidents can run in a family bloodline and could still happen even with health precautions taken. At the Metabolic Research Institute in Palm Beach, we are constantly working at providing a treatment for high cholesterol. We hope to find the answers today in order to create a better tomorrow!
