Suicide by insulin a risk in people with diabetes

first_img Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Suicide by insulin a risk in people with diabetes Published: May 19, 2017 3:19 PM EDT (CBS) Insulin typically saves the lives of those with diabetes, but it can also be a way for some people to kill themselves, a new review warns.People with the blood sugar disease tend to suffer higher rates of depression, the researchers explained. And suicide or suicide attempts using insulin or other diabetes medications that lower blood sugar levels may not always be an easy-to-spot attempt at self-harm, they added.“Some suicides with insulin are likely missed in people with diabetes, just as [suicide may be missed] in people without diabetes using other medications or after a car accident. Could a suicide using insulin be missed? Absolutely,” said Alicia McAuliffe-Fogarty, vice president of lifestyle management at the American Diabetes Association.Insulin is a natural hormone produced by the body. Its job is to help usher the sugar from foods into the body’s cells to provide fuel for those cells. But insulin is also a complex medication.People with type 1 diabetes no longer make enough insulin and must give themselves insulin to stay alive. People with type 2 diabetes don’t use insulin efficiently — this is called insulin resistance — and eventually don’t make enough insulin to keep up with the body’s demands. At this point, people with type 2 diabetes also need to take insulin.Insulin can be given by multiple injections every day or via an insulin pump. Insulin pumps deliver insulin through a small tube that’s inserted under the skin. The site of the insulin pump must be changed every few days. But once the tube is in, someone who uses an insulin pump only needs to push a few buttons to deliver a dose of insulin.However, getting the right amount of insulin is no easy task. Many factors affect the body’s need for insulin. Exercise decreases the need. Foods that are higher in carbohydrates increase the need. Stress and other moods can affect the need for insulin, as can illness or hormonal shifts, such as those that occur with menstruation.People with diabetes often have to make adjustments to their insulin doses. If they make a mistake and take too much, an extremely low blood sugar level (hypoglycemia) can occur. If they give themselves too little insulin, their blood sugar levels rise (hyperglycemia). Either condition can be very dangerous.According to Dr. Alyson Myers, director of inpatient diabetes at North Shore University Hospital, in Manhasset, N.Y., “If someone comes in with hypoglycemia, you think, ‘Oh, they overdid it.’ And, sometimes when people come in with hyperglycemia or DKA (a complication of hyperglycemia), the intention to self-harm can be missed.”Myers is also the lead author of the review, published recently in the journal Current Diabetes Reviews.It’s not clear exactly how high the rates of suicide are in people with diabetes, though Myers said the rates are higher than in the general population.Plus, an attempt at suicide using insulin or other blood sugar-lowering medications may ultimately fail. “The body is a resilient thing,” Myers said, explaining that the body has ways to protect itself, such as releasing a natural form of sugar from the liver.Instead of automatically assuming there was an error in care, Myers recommended that physicians consider the possibility of a suicide attempt or self-harm through the use of insulin and other medications.She suggested that doctors follow the guidelines from the diabetes association on psychosocial care for people with diabetes that includes a multi-disciplinary team, including a behavioral health specialist.McAuliffe-Fogarty agreed that when doctors see patients — whether it’s in the hospital or for an office visit — they should screen for psychosocial concerns.If a doctor identifies a potential concern, “refer to a mental health care provider so people can get the help they need to live a full and happy life,” she said.Given that 20 percent to 25 percent of people with diabetes screen positive for depressive symptoms at some point, people may need help sometimes.“If you see signs of depression, changes in people’s sleep patterns or eating behaviors, a loss of interest in things they once enjoyed; if they say things like, ‘when I’m not here things will be better,’ or express an intention to self-harm, make an appointment with a mental health-care provider. People often need some help coping and figuring out how to deal with things,” McAuliffe-Fogarty said.“If you’re very nervous that they might harm themselves, call their doctor or bring them to the hospital. Or call 911 if you think they’re in immediate trouble,” she advised.If you’re concerned that a loved one or friend may be considering suicide, McAuliffe-Fogarty said it’s OK to ask, though some people consider the word suicide to be taboo. “Ask, ‘Are you thinking of hurting yourself or thinking of not being here?’ Sometimes people are relieved and will open up.”But McAuliffe-Fogarty also cautioned that every misuse of insulin may not be a deliberate act of self-harm.“It’s not always self-harm or a suicide attempt,” she stressed.One such example, “Some people use insulin omission to lose weight. It’s a type of disordered eating, but they’re not trying to hurt themselves,” she explained. SHARElast_img read more

In Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys have an exception to the rule against paying RBs big bucks

first_imgZeke is different, though. Perhaps the fact that sentence can be written and understood without other defining elements (last name, team affiliation) is some evidence of this.MORE COWBOYS:Why Dallas will win Super Bowl 54There are much more profound reasons, though, why the Cowboys choosing to present a $90 million contract extension to Ezekiel Elliott, essentially tying him to the franchise through the end of his expected career lifespan, is a decision steeped in football logic.In reaching the conclusion that the modern running back has become a position of largely interchangeable parts, some better parts than others but still replaceable in comparison with players at several other spots on the field, one always is haunted by the history of the game. What if there were another Jim Brown or Walter Payton or LaDainian Tomlinson?Elliott has not risen to that level of esteem, but he might be near to that level of exception.NFL SEASON PREVIEW:Predictions, rankings, more for 2019After 40 games in the NFL, Elliott is averaging 101.2 rushing yards per game. That’s better than the career averages of Eric Dickerson, Emmitt Smith and Payton and just short of Brown’s 104.3. If you’re worrying their numbers were evened out as they aged, indeed, Elliott’s average rush production per game through three seasons is superior even to that of the great Barry Sanders.As the sport continued to evolve toward the passing game, Elliott demonstrated an enhanced ability to assist in that regard in his third season with the Cowboys, improving last season to 77 receptions, fifth in the league among backs.Elliott is different in form as well as function. At 230 pounds, he has sub-4.5 speed and excels in the department of yards after contact. He may not be at Saquon Barkley levels in all of these categories, but that is the Giants’ problem (eventually, and their blessing now, of course).As regards the wisdom of dumping a truckload of cash on Elliott, the only concern relative to the Cowboys is whether it makes salary-cap sense. And, with the way the Cowboys presently are constructed, and with the way the deal is designed, that appears to be the case. It seems certain Dallas will at some point find a way to reach an agreement with quarterback Dak Prescott on a replacement for his rookie deal. Prescott is not an elite quarterback, not the sort of game-breaker that Patrick Mahomes is for the Chiefs, but he is effective. And, relative to this discussion, he is much more so when he can hand or pass the football to Elliott.Prescott and Elliott entered the Cowboys’ backfield together as rookies in 2016, and when together on the field they mostly have known success. The team has a 28-12 record when both are available, a .700 winning percentage. In a 16-game season, that’s an 11-win team, and that’s fantastic in a league as balanced as the NFL.The Cowboys are betting their next several seasons on this combination, and on a defense that ranked third in yards and seventh in points allowed last season. With Elliott still only 24, this is the time to do just that. And by arranging an extension rather than a new contract, the Cowboys positioned themselves to owe him $50 million guaranteed, a manageable figure, and to exist still with a sub-$10 million cap hit for Elliott over the next two seasons.Whereas Bell produced only three runs of 20 or more yards in his last full season with the Steelers, Elliott delivered 11 such plays last season, the second-best figure in the league. Those longer runs are the sort that change games. Elliott also has shown the capacity to convert first downs — 74 last season, or one every four carries, the best figure among the league’s 1,000-yard backs — and to help keep the defense rested. According to ESPN producer Paul Hembekides, the Cowboys defense has been on the field for fewer drives than any team in the league since Elliott and Prescott arrived.2019 NFL PREDICTIONS:How Dallas ends up in the Super BowlThe one thing that surely does not make sense about the Elliott contract is the carnival Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones contrived through the course of training camp. If he had no desire to devote a significant portion of the team’s salary-cap dollars to the RB position, the conventional current football approach would have supported his plan. There was no need for “Zeke who?” and all similar folderol.

Trying to pay him wrecked at least one season for the team, and probably impacted another. And the entire league was woken up to the folly of investing huge in any particular running back when the Rams got to the Super Bowl and mostly chose to deploy a guy they pulled out of the unemployment line in favor of one to whom they pledged the immediate future of their franchise. That Jones so badly mishandled that portion of the proceedings does give rise to the concern that he’ll mismanage the trickiest element of his investment: He cannot afford to coerce the team’s coaches to “get his money’s worth.” There will be the temptation to assure Elliott earns every dollar by overloading him with carries and catches. With Elliott’s style, this likely will serve to wear him down as the most important games of the season arrive.His 381 touches last season led the league. That’s not necessarily a statistical crown a player wants to win, and it isn’t likely to result in the postseason success Dallas has craved for so long. The team needs Elliott to be healthy and available for multiple playoff games.That hasn’t been an issue for the Cowboys too often over the past couple decades, but Zeke could be the guy to establish a new streak.last_img read more

Former Steeler Woodley hoping to provide exposure for overlooked prospects

first_imgLaMarr Woodley, linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, arrives at the Athletes Quarterly Super Bowl Party at Hudson Terrace, Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014, in New York. (John Minchillo/AP Images for Athletes Quarterly)SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) _ LaMarr Woodley has created a football camp he hopes will provide exposure for overlooked prospects.The NFL linebacker and former Michigan star plans to host his first CAMP 56 July 13-14 at the Legacy Center Sports Complex in Brighton, Michigan.Woodley wants to help 110 high school students, none of whom have been heavily recruited, get the attention of college coaches.“My main goal for wanting to start a new type of camp was to give high school players, who might not be heavily recruited because they’re at smaller schools or other reasons, the chance to be seen and possibly signed by college coaches,” said Woodley. “There are kids out there with a ton of talent who don’t get much, or any exposure to recruiters, and my hope is that we can build the gap that provides them with that opportunity.”He says academics will be stressed at the two-day camp, which will include visits from university academic advisers and experts familiar with NCAA rules and standardized testing. CAMP 56 expects to have a staff of college and pro coaches and players, including Woodley, who has played for Arizona, Oakland and Pittsburgh.Woodley will also host a free camp July 16 in his hometown of Saginaw, Michigan.___Online:http://www.lamarrwoodleyfoundation.comlast_img read more
