The impact of hormones throughout menstrual cycles on blood glucose and insulin needs (#30)

5 January 2021

Listen on:

The urge for gender-specific treatment

:Todays episode addresses the influence of hormones throughout the menstrual cycle on glucose levels and insulin requirements. The female body as a whole and women-specific affairs are still highly under researched. By looking at the menstrual cycle we can learn much about hormones in general, this is important for all genders. Research around gender-specific needs, treatments and medical care is essential for the overall well-being of humanity. Fundamental research and education for girls and women around the world is needed to support and improve their diabetes management.

Here is what women in the research project said in regards to medical devices helping them manage their insulin needs during their menstrual cycle.

Those topics I discuss with the medical student Darius Mewes. He is studying at Charité in Berlin, Europe’s largest university hospitals and the 5th best hospital in the world. More than half of all German Nobel Prize winners in Physiology and Medicine, 
including Robert Koch, have worked at there.

Together with his colleague Katarina Braune, he published an analysis of subjectively perceived glycemic variations and therapy adjustments with respect to the menstrual cycle.
