A study was conducted to examine whether diabetes risk can be reduced after maintaining high levels of cardiorespiratory fitness. The study concluded that cardiorespiratory fitness is associated with a lower risk of developing pre-diabetes and diabetes. Lisa S Chow, MD, MS, the University of Minnesota is the main researcher of the study.
Eating white rice can push up the blood sugar levels. But how we eat white rice can make big difference. A study was conducted by Prof Jeyakumar Henry and published in the European Journal Of Nutrition found that the glycaemic index (GI) of pure white rice was 96. But the GI index will be 50 if it is combined with chicken breast, groundnut or vegetable oil. A GI of 55 or less is good and above 70 is high. Eating rice with protein reduces GI. The best GI value can be obtained when rice is eaten with curd from crushed soya beans (tofu). Eating along with meats too reduce GI values. The study found that before eating chicken rice, it is better to drink soups rich with amino acids as they stimulate secretion of insulin and also helps the absorption of sugar by tissues. Drinking soya or milk along with the meal reduces sugar in the blood after the meal, even if soya contains sugar.
A study led by Dr. Yun Rose Li at Perelman School of Medicine, based at the University of Pennsylvania found that almost 50% of the breast cancer patients can be survived with the usage of metformin drug, a drug used for the treatment of diabetes. The study results were presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting.
Even though a person is obese, there is no guarantee that he may develop type 2 diabetes (T2D). In a study conducted by Swedish and French scientists led by Eckardt Treuter and Nicolas Venteclef, have identified epigenomic alterations that are associated with inflammation and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Obese individuals differ in developing insulin resistance and diabetes. Scientists believe changes in epigenome could be an important reason for this difference. The findings were published in the journal Nature Medicine.
The child may have higher cholesterol levels if the child has a family history of heart attack or type 2 diabetes (T2D). The family myocardial infarction is linked to the children cholesterol levels. The cardiometabolic risks will be developed in the child via both family histories and the roots are independent of each other. The cholesterol levels in the child are independently associated with diabetes disease histories of both the families. Children were recorded with a higher total cholesterol and lower good cholesterol. An average one inch higher waist circumference was recorded in the child having diabetes family history. Diabetes in the family is linked to
A healthy diet and physical activity are important to keep cholesterol within a healthy range and to reduce fat buildup in the arteries. Lead author of the study is Nina E Berentzen, The Netherlands.
A study by Dr. Samantha Chambers and Mr. Steven John Robinson, the UK concluded that an obese diabetes patient can save future medical costs of around £95,000 by undergoing obesity surgery. The study was presented at the European Obesity Summit in Gothenburg (1-4 June 2016).
