Possible Link Found Between Diabetes and Human Circadian Rhythms
Posted: Sunday, January 18, 2009
A new gene variant has been discovered that raises blood glucose levels through melatonin secretion. This finding possibly establishes a previously unknown link between human circadian rhythms (sleep-wake cycles, regulated by melatonin), and diabetes.

Protein Induces Beta Cell Regeneration to Induce Insulin Production
Posted: Saturday, January 17, 2009
Insulin injections are the primary form of treatment and management for type 1 diabetics, due to an inability to produce normal levels of insulin. Researchers have recently discovered a way to induce insulin production, potentially in type 1 diabetics, through the regeneration of pancreatic beta cells.

Free Public Exercise Programs Could Benefit Many Americans
Posted: Thursday, January 15, 2009
Numerous dangerous health conditions are a product of poor nutrition and exercise, but many individuals lack the motivation to change their ways and protect their health. Using a Brazilian model for free public exercise, researchers at Washington University of St. Louis, in conjunction with researchers in Brazil, have recently published a study suggesting that free public exercise programs in the United States could increase the activity levels and health of many individuals.

Breast Cancer More Likely in Post-Menopausal Women With High Insulin Levels
Posted: Saturday, January 10, 2009
Obesity is known to increase the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women, but the reason for this has remained greatly unknown. A recent study has found that in postmenopausal women, high insulin levels greatly increased breast cancer incidence, and it's speculated that obesity might be a leading contributor to high insulin levels.

Cardiovascular Mortality Equally Likely for Diabetics as for CVD Patients
Posted: Thursday, January 08, 2009
Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) have been closely linked in several respects, but little solid quantification of the risk diabetes poses to cardiovascular mortality has been achieved. A recent study has made a profound discovery, that in the long-term, mortality due to cardiovascular events (heart attacks and strokes), is equally likely for diabetics with no previous cardiovascular disease history, as it is for individuals with known cardiovascular disease (and non-diabetic). The study was conducted solely on males, but the results are suspected to extend to both sexes.

Periodontal Maintenance Improves Diabetic Health
Posted: Tuesday, January 06, 2009
For diabetic adults who also have gum disease, being diligent with cleanings and other gum disease procedures, might significantly reduce risks and medical costs associated with diabetes.

Blood Sugar Levels Linked to Elderly Brain Activity
Posted: Friday, January 02, 2009
Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, both in diabetics and non-diabetics, plays a significant role in "cognitive aging," according to a Columbia University study. The researchers found that mental events in elderly individuals, such as the famed "senior moment," are associated in many cases with irregular blood sugar levels, and could potentially be avoided with proper exercise.

Mr. Diabetes® Completes 10,000+ Mile Walk of U.S. Perimeter
Posted: Thursday, December 18, 2008
Still Plenty of Work to Do: For the past eight years Andy Mandell - Mr. Diabetes®, Executive Director of Defeat Diabetes Foundation, has been a man with one mission: to walk the 10,000 mile perimeter of the United States raising awareness about the dangers of diabetes, a disease that nearly took his life. On December 21, 2008, at approximately 2:00 pm EST, he will walk the final steps in Madeira Beach, FL where it began December 1, 2000.

Protein Responds to Fat, But Not in Fat People
Posted: Tuesday, December 02, 2008
A protein produced in the liver has been found to appear in direct response to the consumption of fatty foods, preparing the body for the fats arrival. The same study showed, however, that obese individuals often lack normal levels of this protein, suggesting that the discovery of this protein's mechanism could lead to novel ways for treating the well-documented obesity epidemic.

Diabetic Laziness Related to Fear of Hypoglycemia
Posted: Tuesday, December 02, 2008
Over 60% of type 1 diabetics are considered inactive, and a recent study has concluded that a fear of exercise induced hypoglycemia might be a big reason why. This reasoning is seriously flawed however, as proper exercise is essential to diabetes maintenance.
