The hypoglycaemic coma is a severe complication for type 1 diabetic patients. Rarely fatal it may be associated with various paroxysmal accidents, potentially harmful, especially during driving. Hypoglycaemia certainly alters the quality of life because it markedly increases the anxiety of both the patient and his/her family. It is considered as a major limiting factor in the glycaemic management of type 1 diabetic patients. Being the consequence of numerous causal factors, hypoglycaemic coma is not always easy to prevent and may occur as a paroxysmal phenomenon, sometimes without obvious contributing circumstances. After having defined the various hypoglycaemic thresholds, we will analyse the pathophysiology of insulin-induced hypoglycaemia and of its hormonal counterregulation, and we will describe the hypoglycaemia unawareness phenomenon. These elements should help to better understand why a hypoglycaemic coma may suddenly occur in a diabetic patient. Some advices will also be given to reduce the risk of such a paroxysmal complication in patients with type 1 diabetes. [less ▲]

The paper defends that the campaign of secularist movement against resurgence of right-wing extremism, although animated by very good intentions, is fragile on two points : it gives too much emphasis on the denunciation of a historical past that is no longer reclaimed by the far right itself and too little on the learning processes necessary to foster democracy; and on the other hand, this struggle may appear partial and one sided because the fight against right-wing extremism is not a monopoly of the secularist movement.

This article proposes to analyse the discourses on “integration” developed during the last few years within various “ethnics” churches (France-Belgium). Of Pentecostal and Evangelical obedience, these churches, stemming from Congolese’s migrations (DRC), can be estimated to several hundreds and even up to a few thousands in Europe. Some constant can be observed in this new branch of Protestantism despite its fragmented and plural movement, particularly the right to think oneself beyond the logics of reduction to otherness. The integrationist discourse produced constitutes a real break with the ideas carried by the autochthon order of both hierarchies and centralities. [less ▲]

These last years, the objective of abolishing child labour in Burkina Faso (a West African country) has tried to create a national unanimity regarding the commitment of collective actors (decision-makers, civil society, employers, labor unions and media). It started by integrating the National Program of child welfare and the schedule of the Ministry of Employment, Ministry of Social Action, and the Ministry of Education. Burkina Faso joined the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) in 1999, created a department of fight against child labour in 2006 and raised the minimum age for admission to employment from 14 to 16 years. This paper supports a critical view of global actions to fight child labour and discusses the complexities of this issue in Burkina Faso. Using an analysis of the State’s National Plan of Action on the elimination of child Labour and two local cases studies on projects that are aimed at removing children from their work, it shows how the local context of working children and their parents are ignored in order to comply with international policy agenda and to cater to donor demands.

The increasing prevalence of obesity is contributing substantially to the ongoing epidemic of type 2 diabetes. Abdominal adiposity, a feature of ectopic fat syndrome, is associated with silent inflammation, abnormal hormone secretion, and various metabolic disturbances that contribute to insulin resistance and insulin secretory defects, resulting in type 2 diabetes, and induce a toxic pattern that leads to cardiovascular disease, liver pathologies, and cancer. Despite the importance of weight control strategies in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes, long-term results from lifestyle or drug interventions are generally disappointing. Furthermore, most of the classic glucose-lowering drugs have a side-effect of weight gain, which renders the management of most overweight or obese people with type 2 diabetes even more challenging. Many anti-obesity pharmacological drugs targeting central control of appetite were withdrawn from the market because of safety concerns. The gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor orlistat was the only anti-obesity drug available until the recent US, but not European, launch of phentermine–controlled-release topiramate and lorcaserin. Improved knowledge about bodyweight regulation opens new prospects for the potential use of peptides derived from the gut or the adipose tissue. Combination therapy will probably be necessary to avoid compensatory mechanisms and potentiate initial weight loss while avoiding weight regain. New glucose-lowering treatments, especially glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists and sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors, offer advantages over traditional antidiabetic drugs by promoting weight loss while improving glucose control. In this Review, we explore the overlapping pathophysiology and also how various treatments can, alone or in combination, combat the dual burden of obesity and type 2 diabetes. [less ▲]

L’aviation commerciale émet près de 5% des émissions mondiales de CO2 dues aux activités humaines. Sa part ne fait qu’augmenter et le développement de la mobilité internationale des biens et des personnes laisse présager une prolongation des tendances historiques de croissance du transport aérien. Avec comme conséquence, une assiette de plus en plus lourde en CO2 lorsque nos aliments proviennent de contrées lointaines par voie aérienne (kérosène). [less ▲]
