Chinese Translation Accidentally Discovers A Potential Diabetes Treatment

An accidental discovery of a potential diabetes treatment found by a Chinese translator at Abacus Chinese Translation Services through the translation of a paper from Chinese to English.

Press Release. August 8, 2009.  Diabetes is a condition in which the body does not produce enough, or properly respond to, insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas. According to American Diabetes Association, diabetes symptoms may include frequent urination, excessive thirst, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss, increased fatigue, irritability, and blurry vision.

For conventional treatment of diabetes, many websites including the website of American Diabetes Association have listed various conventional treatments for Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Recently, Australia’s Dr. Dorota Pawlak, research development manager at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, raised hope for a possible Type 1 Diabetes cure. The research, led by institutions across Europe and the US, shows mice that had chemically-induced diabetes could be cured of the condition through the manipulation of a single gene (Pax4). The research is published in the international journal Cell. In the US, Onglyza was also approved by FDA for Type 2 Diabetes Treatment.

In terms for the alternative treatments for diabetes, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA, also known as lipoic acid or thioctic acid), Chromium, Omega-3 fatty acids, and polyphenols in dietary supplements are shown to improve the conditions of type 2 diabetes patients, while other ingredients in dietary supplements may need additional research to verify their efficacies.

However, accidentally, through the translation of a research report from Chinese to English, translators at Abacus Chinese Translation Services have found an additional piece of information that might give hopes to millions of diabetes patients around the world. According to a preliminary double blind, randomized controlled animal study conducted at the Stanford University School of Medicine in the 1990’s for the application of a research grant from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Yu Xiao San 8805, a dietary supplement in the US but a traditional Chinese medicine used in China used for the treatment of diabetes, has shown statistically significant effect on the increase in triglycerides (TG) in these streptozotocin-induced insulin resistant diabetic rats. Although it has yet to shown its effectiveness for diabetes in the US (to show its effectiveness on diabetes in the US, the company needs to have the product tested on double blind, randomized controlled clinical trials on humans), clinical trials in China have just proved that. The entire translation of the report can be found at http://www.certifiedchinesetranslation.com/openaccess/Yu-Xiao-San-Report-Translation.pdf (with the permission of its client)
