Dairy-Deficient Diet May Determine Diabetes Risk
Posted: Thursday, July 19, 2007
A lack of vitamin D and calcium in the diet may increase the risk for the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes in patients with impaired glucose tolerance, nutrition researchers found.

Progression of Newly Diagnosed Impaired Fasting Glucose to Diabetes in 3 Years
Posted: Thursday, July 19, 2007
On average, a person newly diagnosed with elevated fasting blood sugars above 100mg/dL progresses to diabetes within less then 3 years. Telling patients with prediabetes to watch what they eat and exercise and come back next year, doesn't work! More aggressive therapy is needed.

Impaired Fasting Glucose Increases Risk Factors for CVD Mortality
Posted: Saturday, July 14, 2007

For Diabetes/Prediabetes Screening, Random Blood Sugars are Cheaper and Easier Then OGTT
Posted: Saturday, July 07, 2007
For diabetes and prediabetes screening, random plasma glucose testing alone appears to be at least as good as the full gamut of metabolic syndrome tests, and is easier and cheaper to boot, researchers found.

Results from a six-month extension study have shown that impairment in glycemic control after one year of diuretic-based combination treatment is reversible by switching to treatment not involving a diuretic, in this case, an ACE inhibitor and calcium-channel blocker.

Posted: Friday, May 25, 2007
Individual differences in insulin secretion may explain why some individuals respond well to either a low-fat diet or low-glycemic-load diet, whereas others do not. The findings imply that a simple, baseline oral glucose tolerance test to assess serum insulin concentration may help clinicians and dieticians choose weight-loss strategies for obese subjects.
