Among them, four studies (15, 18-20) showed a positive change in glycaemia control, specifically in insulin sensitivity (HOMA-IR) (20), glycaemia status including serum insulin, FPG, HbA1c and HOMA (15, 18, 19).

However, there was a correlation between loss of thyroid function and higher cholesterol, glycaemia, insulin, and HOMA-IR levels.
According to the personal diaries, automatic calculations of the integral indicators characterising the self-control of glycaemia (fasting, postprandial, and average glycaemia) were accomplished.
Other researchers also associated the high triglyceride level to the poor glycaemia control of diabetes and obesity.26,27 This hypothesis is supported by the reduction of the triglyceride level with the improvement of glycaemia control i.e.
* Diabetes mellitus type 2 (fasting glucose [greater than or equal to]126 mg/dl or glycaemia two hours after glucose load [greater than or equal to]200 mg/dl);
Diabetics on insulin injection suffer bouts of hyper and hypo glycaemia (High or low sugar); they gain weight and there is damage to organs as time progresses."
It is therefore recommendable in special or non-daily situations to be more attentive to warning signs, carrying out a continuous monitoring of blood sugar levels (Cox et al., 2007), or if necessary, doing further self-analysis, through daily, frequent registering of capillary glycaemia, with the adequate amount of measurements a day being 5 to 7 among individuals at risk (Cox, Gonder-Frederick, Antoun, Cryer, & Clarke, 1993; Gil Roales-Nieto & Vilchez Joya, 1993; Martin Vaquero, Barquiel Alcala, Puma Duque, & Lisbona Catalan, 2009).
Five days after ALX injection, animals with postprandial glycaemia over 250 mg/kg were considered diabetics and included in the experimental protocol [7].
