Obesity Strongly Linked to Insulin Processing
Posted: Tuesday, April 14, 2009
Obesity, itself thought to be a major cause of insulin resistance, in fact appears to result from distinct insulin processing as well. A recent study has concluded that differences in insulin processing within cells are responsible for variations in how fat is stored within these cells, potentially leading to obesity.

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.

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.

New Study Shows that a Virus can Trigger Type 1 Diabetes
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
A virus with symptoms like those of the common cold may be a trigger for diabetes, especially in children, according to two UK studies that suggest doctors may one day be able to vaccinate against the disease.

Psoriasis Patients at Increased Diabetes, Heart Disease Risk
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
People with severe psoriasis are at an increased risk of developing serious medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes, says a dermatologist from the University of Pennsylvania.

Sodium Channel Connects Epilepsy, Diabetes
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
A tiny pore or channel that governs the flow of sodium ions in and out of a brain cell where it can trigger nervous impulses and seizures also plays a pivotal role in the release of insulin and glucagon (hormones involved in maintaining levels of glucose in the blood) by islet cells in the pancreas, said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine.

New Study Shows How Fructose Promotes Diabetes
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
A new study may help explain why diets high in the sugar fructose have been linked to insulin resistance, a precursor to Type 2 diabetes.

Working the Night Shift Can Increase Risk of Diabetes
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
An upset in the body's internal clock may cause blood sugar spikes and insulin resistance.

Stress Raises Diabetes Risk for Obese Black Women
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009
Surge in anxiety-linked hormone worsens blood sugar level, researchers suggest and stress may play a key role in the development of Type 2 diabetes in obese black women, U.S. researchers say.

Abdominal Fat Linked to Low Vitamin D Intake
Posted: Saturday, March 14, 2009
Teens who consume more vitamin D tend to have lower abdominal fat, and a subsequently diminished risk in the development of future heart disease and diabetes. This recently published research suggests that teens need to be educated to the benefits of vitamin D, and increase their natural and supplemental exposure to it.
