The disease that wreaks havoc. Alarm signal for women

New research has found that patients over 45 who are given blood sugar-lowering drugs for type 2 diabetes are at the highest risk of developing a new serious autoimmune disease.

Site-ul Science Daily cited an alarming report published by scientists at the University of Arizona Health Sciences: The culprit for the development of multiple sclerosis is the very treatment they receive.

Patients over 45 who are given blood sugar-lowering drugs for type 2 diabetes are at the highest risk of multiple sclerosis, especially women.

Interestingly, patients up to the age of 45 do not present this risk, neither men nor women, in their case the drugs administered even seem to have a protective effect when it comes to multiple sclerosis.

“Our findings reinforce the need for a precision medicine approach to preventing multiple sclerosis in these vulnerable populations,” said study author Kathleen Rodgers, associate director of translational neuroscience at the Center for Brain Science Innovation.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable autoimmune neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system and leads to severe physical and cognitive disabilities. It is estimated that nearly 1 million adults in the US and more than 2.8 million worldwide are living with MS.

In people with type 2 diabetes, there is increasing evidence linking metabolic disorders and MS through a common factor of increased autoimmunity. This calls into question the impact of antihyperglycemic therapy used to treat type 2 diabetes, including insulin, on the incidence of MS.

“Previous research has shown a neuroprotective effect of antihyperglycemic drugs in Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias,” said Dr. Rodgers. “For MS, we wanted to further examine age and gender differences, particularly among men and women under 45 with type 2 diabetes.”
