Discovery of a New Receptor Antagonist Predicts Diabetes 2 Onset
Posted: Wednesday, April 15, 2009
Elevated levels of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra), a natural inhibitor of interleukin-1 beta, precedes the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

Periodontal Disease Can Lead To Gestational Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, April 15, 2009
A new study by NYU dental researchers has uncovered evidence that pregnant women with periodontal (gum) disease face an increased risk of developing gestational diabetes even if they don't smoke or drink, a finding that underscores how important it is for all expectant mothers - even those without other risk factors - to maintain good oral health.

Pre-Natal Nutrition Essential to Preventing Future Disease in Offspring
Posted: Monday, April 13, 2009
Women consuming unhealthy diets during pregnancy put their child at risk for numerous future health problems, suggests a recent study. Diabetes, cardiovascular disease (CVD), obesity, and stunted growth, were seen to be the most prevalent complications developed in animal models, where the mother's had poor nutrition.

New Link Between Obesity and Insulin Resistance Uncovered
Posted: Saturday, April 11, 2009
The high BCAA protein levels found in obese individuals, combined with high fat diets, could significantly increase the incidence of pre-diabetic insulin resistance. Because obesity and diabetes are so closely linked, this finding could go a long way in explaining the cause and effect of the obesity-diabetes connection, as well as lay the foundations for future preventative treatments for diabetes in obese individuals.

Brown Fat Could Help Treat Obesity and Diabetes
Posted: Friday, April 10, 2009
Brown fat, which helps use energy and burn calories, and was previously believed to only to exist in babies, has recently been shown to occur in adults as well. The discovery of the presence of this "good fat" in adults lays foundations for potential obesity and diabetes treatments that stimulate brown fat growth.

Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Responsible for Obesity Epidemic?
Posted: Thursday, April 02, 2009
While diets often focus of solid caloric intake, a recent study has shown that decreasing intake of liquid calories may in fact be more effective in creating weight loss. Specifically, a reduction in sugar-sweetened beverage consumption could help prevent obesity and associated conditions, such as type 2 diabetes.

African-Americans Less Prone to Fatty Liver Disease
Posted: Saturday, March 28, 2009
Despite being at higher risk for obesity, diabetes and heart disease, African-Americans are in fact at lower risk for fatty liver disease. In a recent study, which compared Hispanics (whom are also at higher risk for obesity, diabetes and heart disease) and African-Americans, it was observed that due to differing locations of fat storage in the body, African-Americans have a significantly lower incidence of fatty liver disease.

Fructose Triggers Increased Appetite
Posted: Thursday, March 26, 2009
New research, which includes a meta-analysis of past research, stresses a link between fructose consumption and increased appetite. The resulting higher food intake that comes from consuming fructose, along with the recent rise in fructose-loaded products, gives reason to believe that fructose is at least partially responsible for rising obesity and type 2 diabetes rates, especially in youth. This is opposed to glucose, which in past research has been linked to decreased appetite.

Two New Diabetes Drugs could be Approved by April 2nd
Posted: Thursday, March 26, 2009
A U.S. Food and Drug Administration panel will review two proposed drugs to treat Type 2 diabetes this April. According to a meeting notice posted on the FDA's website Monday, the FDA's Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drugs Advisory Committee will discuss Bristol-Myers Squibb's saxagliptin tablets on April 1 and Novo Nordisk.'s liraglutide injection on April 2.

Bariatric Surgery Causes Most Cases of Type 2 to Remit Long-Term
Posted: Thursday, March 26, 2009
In morbidly obese patients with Type 2 diabetes, bariatric surgery leads to resolution or improvement of the disease in close to 90% of cases, with benefits usually maintained for at least 2 years, according to a meta-analysis.
