Published Blood test could determine diabetes risks (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A blood test could potentially be used to assess a patient's risk of type 2 diabetes, a new study has found.
Published Avid appetite in childhood linked to later eating disorder symptoms (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The study looked at survey data from 3,670 young people in the UK and the Netherlands to investigate how appetite traits in early childhood might relate to the likelihood of developing eating disorder symptoms up to 10 years later. The researchers found that a particularly high food responsiveness, defined as the urge to eat when you see, smell or taste palatable food, at the ages of four and five was linked to a higher likelihood of reporting a range of eating disorder symptoms at ages 12 to 14.
Published Red light can reduce blood glucose levels (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Shining a specific frequency of red light on a person's back for 15 minutes can significantly reduce blood sugar levels, according to a new study.
Published Fasting-like diet lowers risk factors for disease, reduces biological age in humans (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Cycles of a diet that mimics fasting can reduce signs of immune system aging, as well as insulin resistance and liver fat in humans, resulting in a lower biological age, according to a new study.
Published Could ultra-processed foods be the new 'silent' killer? (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Hundreds of novel ingredients never encountered by human physiology are now found in nearly 60 percent of the average adult's diet and nearly 70 percent of children's diets in the U.S. An emerging health hazard is the unprecedented consumption of these ultra-processed foods in the standard American diet. This may be the new 'silent' killer, as was unrecognized high blood pressure in previous decades. Physicians provide important insights in a battle where the entertainment industry, the food industry and public policy do not align with their patients' needs.
Published Newly discovered genetic markers help pinpoint diabetes risks, complications (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In the largest genome-wide association study to date on Type 2 diabetes, a team of international researchers has located 1,289 genetic markers associated with Type 2 diabetes (145 of which are newly identified) and generated risk scores for diabetes complications.
Published Protein-rich breakfast boosts satiety and concentration (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study has explored the link between diet and cognitive function, and the results reveal that a protein-rich breakfast can increase satiety and improve concentration. This is important knowledge in a society with increasing obesity rates and lifestyle-related diseases.
Published Gargling away the 'bad' bacteria in type 2 diabetes (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have found that gargling with an antiseptic mouthwash can reduce so-called 'bad' bacteria in the mouths of patients with type 2 diabetes. Notably, this reduction in bacteria was accompanied by improved blood-sugar control in some patients. Given that the oral diseases caused by these bacteria have been linked to many other serious inflammation-associated diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer's disease, this simple treatment may have widespread effects.
Published Type 2 diabetes alters the behavior of discs in the vertebral column (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Type 2 diabetes alters the behavior of discs in the vertebral column, making them stiffer, and also causes the discs to change shape earlier than normal. As a result, the disc's ability to withstand pressure is compromised. This is one of the findings of a new study in rodents from a team of engineers and physicians.
Published Heart organoids simulate pregestational diabetes-induced congenital heart disease (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
An advanced human heart organoid system can be used to model embryonic heart development under pregestational diabetes-like conditions, researchers report. The organoids recapitulate hallmarks of pregestational diabetes-induced congenital heart disease found in mice and humans. The findings also showed that endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and lipid imbalance are critical factors contributing to these disorders, which could be ameliorated with exposure to omega-3s.
Published AI model as diabetes early warning system when driving (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Based solely on driving behavior and head/gaze motion, the newly developed tool recognizes low blood sugar levels.
Published Males born to obese mothers more likely to suffer health issues as adults (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Males born to obese women are more likely to be overweight at birth and develop metabolic complications in later life, including liver disease and diabetes.
Published New weight loss medication may help lower blood pressure in adults with obesity (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Weight loss medication reduced both day and nighttime blood pressure levels, finds new study.
Published Disrupted cellular function behind type 2 diabetes in obesity (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Disrupted function of 'cleaning cells' in the body may help to explain why some people with obesity develop type 2 diabetes, while others do not. A study describes this newly discovered mechanism.
Published Researchers use the eye as a window to study liver health (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have developed a method to study liver function and disease without requiring invasive procedures. After transplanting liver cells into the eye of mice, the cornea can be used as a window into the body to monitor liver health over time.
Published Diabetes and liver cancer: Study suggests new screening guidelines (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study identifies an easily measured biophysical property that can identify Type 2 diabetics at increased risk for liver cancer who don't meet current screening guidelines.
Published Understanding rapid weight loss in older women: Message from the heart (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Unexplained rapid weight loss in older people could be a sign of underlying disease and can be linked with increased risk of falls and fractures, as well as a poorer long-term prognosis.
Published Diabetes medication class tied to lower risk of kidney stones (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Type 2 diabetes is associated with increased risk of kidney stones, but some forms of treatment for this condition may also have the benefit of lowering risk of kidney stones. Researchers found that there was an association between the use of sodium-glucose contratransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and a lower risk of developing kidney stones.
Published Researchers uncover potential non-opioid treatment for chronic pain (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new approach to treating neuropathic pain is making a key step forward. Neuropathic pain is among the most difficult types of pain to alleviate and current treatments are often ineffective. Researchers have identified a potential non-opioid treatment.
Published Study urges people to think twice before going on a diet (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new qualitative study highlights the negative interpersonal and psychological consequences associated with 'yo-yo dieting,' also known as weight cycling. The work underscores how toxic yo-yo dieting can be and how difficult it can be for people to break the cycle.
