Forced Eating as a Child Could Lead to Future Over-Eating
Posted: Sunday, March 08, 2009
A common parental action is the encouragement, or even requirement, that their children finish all the food given to them at a meal. A recent Cornell University study has shown that this behaviour, while often well-intentioned, appears to hinder the development of the child's appetite control, which leads to over-eating outside the home.

Diabetics Can Choose Their Energy-Restricted Diets
Posted: Wednesday, March 04, 2009
For people with type 2 diabetes, diets high in either monounsaturated fatty acids or carbohydrates are good -- as long as the calories they contain are limited.

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.

Drinking Two-Plus Cans of Pop Daily Doubles The Risk for Early Kidney Disease by 50%
Posted: Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Women and not men, who drink two or more cans of regular, not diet soda pop per day are nearly twice as likely to show early signs of kidney disease, a recent study has found.

Medicare OKs Bariatric Surgery As Diabetes Treatment
Posted: Tuesday, February 24, 2009
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, announced last week a clarification in its policy for Medicare coverage of bariatric surgery as a treatment for certain beneficiaries with type 2, or non-insulin-dependent, diabetes.

Which Bariatric Surgery for Which Type 2 Patient? It Matters!
Posted: Tuesday, February 24, 2009
The 2 major types of bariatric procedures for obese patients — bypass surgery and restrictive surgery — have different effects on gut hormone secretion, and thus on insulin secretion and sensitivity. These effects should be considered when choosing a surgical approach for severely obese patients with type 2 diabetes and when managing their diabetes postsurgery.

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.

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.
