Does Aspirin Prevent Heart Disease in All Diabetics?
Posted: Thursday, November 13, 2008

Diabetes Leads to Early Death for Alzheimer's Patients
Posted: Thursday, November 06, 2008
There is significant variance in expected lifespans for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, but two fairly clear trends have recently been found.

Risks and Rewards of Vitamin E
Posted: Friday, October 31, 2008
Vitamin E has become a symbol of high benefits and high consequences within the medical community.

Recent research has aimed to understand why this happens, and to establish the ideal amount of vitamin E to consume in order to maximize benefit and minimize these dangerous risks.

Posted: Tuesday, October 21, 2008
A new technique using three-dimensional (3-D) Doppler ultrasound could be a powerful tool in diagnosing breast cancer. The new technique is believed to be able to distinguish between benign and malignant tumors so effectively that in many cases biopsies would be unnecessary.

Aspirin and Antioxidants Might Not Help Prevent Heart Disease for Diabetics
Posted: Friday, October 17, 2008
The long-established belief that aspirin helps prevent heart attacks, especially in high risk groups like diabetics, has been strongly challenged in a recent study. Aspirin, as well as antioxidant supplements, were found to have no effect on preventing heart attacks in diabetics.

Severity of Diabetic Retinopathy Linked to Incidence of Nephropathy
Posted: Wednesday, October 08, 2008
A large population-based study has identified a significant association between the severity of retinopathy and the incidence of nephropathy in patients with diabetes. In addition, disease severity appears to be linked to a family history of diabetes.
