Elderly Diabetics at Risk for Gangrene
Posted: Sunday, March 29, 2009
Gangrene, the nasty condition known to cause black and green limbs due to infection and a leading cause of amputations, and most recognized as a product of war wounds or conditions, is now being mentioned as a risk for elderly diabetics.

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.

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.

A common procedure to treat cystic fibrosis (CF), in which a specific type of sugar is inhaled into the lungs, might lead to dangerous complications, especially for diabetics. A bacteria, known as burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc), appears to create further mucus buildup for CF patients as a result of this procedure, and has been labeled a "superbug."
