One in seven people over age 50 suffers from impaired glucose tolerance, which consists of the elevation of blood sugar levels after eating. In the majority of cases, this intolerance develops as a result of obesity and associated metabolic syndrome. If the person does not take concrete measures (low weight, controlling their diet and regularly practice exercise) when this problem is diagnosed, the direct consequence is diabetes, which grows to great strides and has become a serious problem for public health, particularly by its high prevalence among young people and children. It is estimated that one in ten people who suffer from impaired glucose tolerance will develop type 2 diabetes and it is estimated that in thirty years, the rate of people with diabetes around the world may grow in more than one hundred percent. Diabetes produces, in turn, own complications.

One of every three people with diabetes will develop kidney failure and more than 70% will die of cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, it is the leading cause of blindness and amputation of limbs. When this gloomy scenario is presented, the obese must take measures more effective. If traditional treatments have already been tested and not the expected results have been achieved, undergo a surgery can be an interesting option. Still don’t understand the exact mechanisms by which insulin levels are controlled after an operation of this kind, but there is extensive medical literature which endorses its results and give us guarantees to take the risk. The patient may have a great recovery after the intervention. Approximately 70% of patients are able to eliminate their diabetes and lowering triglyceride levels within a few days of post-operative.

This percentage may increase or decrease depending on the type of surgery. The speed with which it happens makes think experts not associated with the low weight, since patients are still obese when their values are stabilized. Some say that it is due to hormonal changes, to the improvement of habits and the reduction of calories that are assimilated by the organism. Even if Bariatric Surgery is not viewed as part of the treatment of diabetes, you need to call your doctor the possibility of making it. There are different types of operations that can adapt to your case and your needs, and may help overcome two of the most dangerous diseases of our century. Obesity Surgery offer several alternatives to recover his health as the Gastric Bypass, gastric banding or gastric balloon among others. Don’t think that you can ever reverse your situation, must only know the options that are at your fingertips.

The new the TravelScope series PC Oscilloscopes are available now as ‘Education Edition’ for the application in technical education at schools and universities. The two TravelScope education models TS-2202E and TS-2212E, except for the advanced trigger 2, the bus trigger and the online firmware upgrade path, have the same features and memory as the high-end model TS 2212A. The TS 2202E is equipped with a memory of 2 x 10kPoints and the TS-2212E with a memory of 2 x 64MPoints. As trigger conditions are rising, falling, alternate, either as well as edge, pulse width, and video/TV (NTSC, PAL, SECAM, field, scan line) available. Education models TS-2202E and TS-2212E reach a real-time sampling of 1GS / s and in 2-channel mode in 1-channel mode with 500MS/s. The vertical bandwidth (single channel) is 200 MHz and 100 MHz/channel (two-channel) at a vertical resolution of 8-bit. The TravelLogic are Oscilloscopes for a voltage range of 100V (DC + AC peak) laid out and have an offset range of 1.

5 v? to 150V?. The reversible 250MHz-Tastkopfe (x 1 / x 10) are included in the delivery. Thanks to its low-power design, the TravelScopes need no external power supply. The power is supplied directly via the USB port, i.e. fully mobile, the TravelScopes can be used with laptops and notebooks. An interesting aspect is also the Cascadability of TravelScopes.

By default, three Travelscopes on the included stack cable can be connected together to a storage oscilloscope with 4 or 6 channels. Optionally also with up to six TravelScopes possibility to implement a storage oscilloscope with 12 channels. When you use the TS-2212E this solution has a memory of 12 x 64MPoints. In addition to a variety of measuring methods are also mathematical calculations including large FFT analysis methods available (rectangular, Blackman, Hann, Hamming, Harris, triangular, cosine, Lanczos, Gaussian – vertical scale: dBm RMS, dbV RMS,) Linear RMS). The TravelScope can communicate via the function “Internet monitoring” (TCP/IP) as a Wi-Fi-based DSO. As export formats, WORD, EXCEL, CSV, TEXT, HTML, Clipboard, hardcopy and preview are implemented. An I/O port 3.3V TTL with > 8ns trigger pulse and a data logger mode and an integrated 2-channel function generator with modulation, sweep and burst function offer a variety of ways. A powerful mixed-signal oscilloscope is feasible in conjunction with the 4 GHz logic analyzers TravelLogic TL2X36. There is a LabVIEW drivers available for both instruments. The included PCScope software is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista (32/64-bit), Windows7 (32/64-bit) and Windows8 (32/64-bit). A VB – and a VC-driver available available for developing your own applications. Optionally also a LabVIEW driver is available for the TravelScope series, which supports up all LabVIEW versions from version 8. The delivery of all TravelScope models is complete, i.e. Stack cable, USB cable, two reversible 250 MHz (x 1 / x 10) probes and the PC oscilloscope software are part of the scope of supply. There are drivers available, which can be loaded directly from the download page of the manufacturer in its current version for integration into your own applications. A detailed data sheet, the complete manual and many application videos are available under.
