Moderate Alcohol Consumption Strengthens Bones
Posted: Wednesday, March 04, 2009
One-to-two glasses of beer or wine per day, as well as other forms of moderate alcohol consumption, might help strengthen bones. Heavy alcohol consumption, however, appears to have the opposite effect, leading to decreased bone density. The results come from a recent study conducted on primarily elderly individuals, a segment of the population most at risk for osteoporosis and general bone fragility.

Short Sprints Are The Best Way To Prevent Diabetes And Improve Your Health
Posted: Wednesday, March 04, 2009
Less is more, that is the news coming out of a new study on the best way to spend your time when exercising. New research announced on Monday says that just a few moments of concentrated exercise weekly is as beneficial as thirty minutes of normal physical activity a day for reducing the risk of acquiring type 2 diabetes.

New Stem Cell Method Provides Less Controversy and Profound Potential
Posted: Tuesday, March 03, 2009
A newly developed method for producing stem cells that can mimic other cell types, could have wide reaching implications. The new process does not require controversial embryonic stem cells, and is speculated to have the potential to help cure diseases such as diabetes and Parkinson's.

Obese and Diabetic Individuals Produce High Levels of Muscle Blocking Protein
Posted: Saturday, February 28, 2009
A recent study has found that there is an additional obstacle in obtaining good health for obese individuals, as well as type 2 diabetics, in that these conditions lead to the production of a certain protein that inhibits muscle growth. This troubling mechanism also appears to be a strong link between pre-diabetes and full-blown type 2 diabetes.

Camel Milk Helps Prevent Diabetes
Posted: Thursday, February 26, 2009
In a country with far and away the highest incidence of diabetes in the world, a potential preventative treatment has been found in an unlikely place; camels. According to researchers in Bikaner, India, camel milk contains sufficient levels of insulin to help prevent, and perhaps treat, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Omega-3 Helps Protect The Liver and Increase Insulin Tolerance in Obese
Posted: Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Omega-3 fatty acids help protect the liver against obesity related damage, primarily caused by insulin resistance. The recent study further supports past research that suggests omega-3 fatty acids should become more prominent in general daily diets, but especially for obese individuals.

Key To Treating Diabetes Is Making Muscles Burn Fat Better
Posted: Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Scientists have produced results that could silence the current debate about exactly how fat molecules clog up muscle cells, making them less responsive to insulin. The finding is an important milestone in understanding the mechanisms of obesity related insulin resistance, a precursor of Type 2 diabetes.

Eggs Linked To Increased Diabetes Risk
Posted: Wednesday, February 18, 2009
In a long-term study of 57,000 U.S. adults, researchers found that those who ate an egg a day were 58 percent to 77 percent more likely than non-egg-eaters to develop type 2 diabetes.

Pancreatic Pathway a Newly Discovered Risk for Type 2 Diabetes
Posted: Saturday, February 14, 2009
Recent stem cell research at the University of California, San Diego, has uncovered a signaling pathway associated with the development of the pancreas, which has close ties to the onset of type 2 diabetes. The hope is that this research will lead to the ability to target the specific pathway to treat or prevent type 2 diabetes.
