Does Aspirin Prevent Heart Disease in All Diabetics?
Posted: Thursday, November 13, 2008
It's often recommended that diabetics take aspirin as a method for preventing heart disease. Unfortunately, past research supporting this recommendation has been relatively inconclusive, and a recent study suggests that this preventative measure is not as universally effective as generally believed, though perhaps suitable in certain groups.

Low Potassium Levels Linked to High Blood Pressure
Posted: Sunday, November 09, 2008
Low potassium levels often translate to high blood pressure, according to recent research. This correlation was found to be most pronounced in African-Americans.

Diabetes Leads to Early Death for Alzheimer's Patients
Posted: Thursday, November 06, 2008
There is significant variance in expected lifespans for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, but two fairly clear trends have recently been found. Those diagnosed with Alzheimer's that have either diabetes or high blood pressure live less than half as long as those without, making proper maintenance of these conditions potentially very important for Alzheimer's treatments.

Potential Alternative to Insulin Found
Posted: Wednesday, November 05, 2008
Insulin has long been acknowledged as the main natural regulator of blood-sugar levels, and when it is not able to function properly within one's body (due to type 1 or type 2 diabetes), dangerous consequences can result. Researchers have recently found that the protein apelin might be the key to an alternative mechanism to insulin in regulating blood-sugar levels, a finding that could be very significant for diabetics.

Risks and Rewards of Vitamin E
Posted: Friday, October 31, 2008
Vitamin E has become a symbol of high benefits and high consequences within the medical community. Research has established that vitamin E can potentially prevent blood clots and heart disease, but that too much enhances bleeding by preventing essential blood clotting. Recent research has aimed to understand why this happens, and to establish the ideal amount of vitamin E to consume in order to maximize benefit and minimize these dangerous risks.

Diabetes Treatments Becoming Costly
Posted: Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Over the past decade, not only have the number of type 2 diabetes cases been on the rise, but treating the disease has become more expensive. A recent study has revealed that type 2 diabetes treatments are becoming more complicated and more costly for the average patient.

Cherries Reduce Body Fat, Might Prevent Heart Disease
Posted: Sunday, October 26, 2008
Tart cherries might start to play a role in heart disease prevention, based on recent research further supporting their abilities. Consuming tart cherries was observed to reduce body fat, one of the leading risk factors for heart disease.

Green Tea a Type 1 Diabetes Combatant
Posted: Saturday, October 25, 2008
A common antioxidant found in green tea might delay or prevent the onset of type 1 diabetes. The finding was an unexpected bi-product of a study focusing on Sjogren's syndrome, a condition associated with mouth and eye dryness due to damaged moisture glands.

Doppler Scan Successfully Identifies Malignant Tumors
Posted: Tuesday, October 21, 2008
A new technique using three-dimensional (3-D) Doppler ultrasound could be a powerful tool in diagnosing breast cancer. The new technique is believed to be able to distinguish between benign and malignant tumors so effectively that in many cases biopsies would be unnecessary.


High Fructose Diet Associated With Obesity
Posted: Monday, October 20, 2008
Leptin resistance, a condition closely associated with obesity, can be caused by consuming too much fructose. Fructose is one of the most common sugars found in food.
