A study done by the researchers from the Kashan University of Medical Sciences in Kashan, Iran shows that women having infertility (polycystic ovary syndrome, PCOS) may improve their metabolic, cardiovascular, diabetes and heart diseases conditions by consuming soy isoflavones supplements. Estrogens are female hormones responsible for the sexual and reproductive development in women. Soy isoflavones are plant-based estrogens found in the soybean plant. Infertility (polycystic ovary syndrome, PCOS) occurs in a woman when she carries more hormones typically associated with men (testosterone and other androgen hormones). The hormone imbalance may cause.
Regular consumption of soy supplements makes body process sugars properly, reduce harmful cholesterol and balance hormones in women. The author of the study was Zatollah Asemi PhD and the findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Researchers from the Newcastle University, the Lund University, the University of Iowa and the Szeged University are working to find out an alternative treatment option for cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) disease. The body's ability in regulating insulin levels were affected by the defective cystic fibrosis gene. Finding this phenomenon is the key to prevent diabetes from CF patients. Scientists yet to identify reasons for CFRD but diabetes accelerates the development of CFRD. The lifespan of an individual will be reduced with the cystic fibrosis disease. The cystic fibrosis causes lungs clogged with mucus and causes breathing difficulties. Currently, the patients are treated with insulin. The study was funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
A study done by the researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Yale University has found a link between BMI and the brain structure. A higher BMI is associated with the decreased white matter in the brain. The brain of a higher BMI individual ages at a faster rate compared with the brain of a lean individual of the same age group. When researchers scanned the brain of individuals of the same age with higher and lower BMI, researchers have found greater shrinkage in volume of the white matter in the higher BMI or obese individuals. Researchers from previous studies knew that the volume of the white matter in the brain increases during young age and decrease during old age. The study findings were published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging.
A study done by Prof Andrikopoulos, Austin Hospital shows no proof of eating Paleo (Paleolithic) diet benefits type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. The Paleo or Paleolithic diet is the diet believed to be followed by the cave people.
Palio diet contains low carbohydrates items like vegetables, nuts and wild fist etc. Items like processed foods, whole grains, refined sugars and dairy items are avoided. Experts think that the Palio diet improves blood sugar levels and reduces body weight in type 2 diabetes (T2D) individuals. The research review was published in the Medical Journal of Australia.
A study by Prof Paresh Dandona, MD, PhD shows that a combination of forxiga (dapagliflozin), Victoza (liraglutide) and insulin helps in improving blood sugar levels and reducing body weight in type 1 diabetes (T1D) individuals. Researchers tracked blood sugar levels, HbA1c and body weight during the study of the combination drug. Prof Paresh Dandona, MD, PhD at the University of Buffalo is the senior author of the study. The study findings were published in the Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
A study done by Paul Loprinzi from the University of Mississippi found an association between couch potato behavior (no physical activity) and diabetic retinopathy. Researchers tracked 282 diabetes patients. The average age of the participants was 62 years and 29 percent of the individuals are with mild or severe diabetic retinopathy. The study has found that the risk of diabetic retinopathy increases by 16 percent with the increase of 60 minutes of daily inactivity. The study findings were published in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology.
