Posted: Friday, December 05, 2008
It's long been accepted that overweight individuals with higher proportions of fat in the gut, as apposed to the lower body, are more at risk for conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. A new study has found, however, that excess liver fat is the most indicative of future health risks, with outer fat proportions taking a back-seat in riskiness.

Protein Responds to Fat, But Not in Fat People
Posted: Tuesday, December 02, 2008
A protein produced in the liver has been found to appear in direct response to the consumption of fatty foods, preparing the body for the fats arrival. The same study showed, however, that obese individuals often lack normal levels of this protein, suggesting that the discovery of this protein's mechanism could lead to novel ways for treating the well-documented obesity epidemic.

Posted: Monday, November 24, 2008
Two oral medications for type 2 diabetes, rosiglitazone and pioglitazone, have both been shown to have benefit and potentially high risk. A recent study has concluded that rosigilitazone is significantly more dangerous for older diabetics.

Diabetes Increases Risk of Pelvic Girdle Syndrome
Posted: Thursday, November 20, 2008
Pregnant diabetic women might be at increased risk of suffering from pelvic girdle syndrome (PGS), according to a recent Norwegian study. Past research had shown that the hormone relaxin, was related to both PGS and type 1 diabetes, but this is the first study to investigate a potential direct link between PGS and diabetes.
