The Benefits Of Soy Isoflavones Supplements
A study at the Kashan University of Medical Sciences, Kashan, Iran, shows those women with infertility (polycystic ovary syndrome. PCOS) may improve their risk of metabolic, cardiovascular, diabetes and heart diseases by eating soy isoflavones supplements.
The estrogen is the female hormones responsible for the sexual and reproductive development in women.
The 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 associated with men (hormones such as testosterone and other androgen hormones). The following are the risks associated with the hormone imbalance in the women.
Regular consumption of soy supplements can help the women in processing the sugar (glucose) present in the blood, to lower the harmful cholesterol and to balance the hormones.
The author of the study was Dr. Zatollah Asemi, Ph.D. The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Research On Cystic Fibrosis-Related Diabetes (CFRD)
The researchers from Newcastle University, the Lund University, the University of Iowa and the Szeged University are working to find out an alternative treatment option for the people with cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD).
The ability of the body in regulating the insulin is being affected by the defective cystic fibrosis gene. The diagnosis of defective cystic fibrosis gene is the key in the prevention of diabetes in those patients.
The researchers are yet to identify the reasons for CFRD. But diabetes may accelerate the development of CFRD. The cystic fibrosis disease causes a reduction in the life expectancy.
The cystic fibrosis will cause the lungs to become clogged with mucus and breathing difficulties. Currently, the patients are being treated with insulin. The study was funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Link Between The Body Mass Index (BMI) And The Brain
A study by the researchers from the University of Cambridge and Yale University has found a link between the body mass index (BMI) and the brain structure.
The study shows that the body mass index (BMI) is inversely associated with the white matter in the brain. The brain ages quickly in a person with higher BMI compared with the brain of a person with lower body mass index (BMI) of the same age group.
In the study, the researchers have scanned the brain of the people with higher and lower BMI of the same age group. The study found that a greater shrinkage in volume of the white matter in the higher BMI or obese people.
An earlier study has indicated that the volume of the white matter in the brain increases during the young age and decrease during the old age.
The study was published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging.
A Study On Paleo Diet
The Paleo or Paleolithic diet is believed to be followed by the cave people.
A study by Prof. Andrikopoulos, the Austin Hospital, Australia, did not find any evidence that shows eating a Paleo (Paleolithic) based diet can benefit the patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D).
Palio diet contains low carbohydrate foods such as vegetables and nuts. The foods such as processed foods, whole grains, refined sugars and dairy products should be avoided.
The experts think that the Palio diet can improve the blood sugar levels and helps in weight loss in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). The study was published in the Medical Journal of Australia.
The Trial Of A Combination Of Victoza (Liraglutide), Forxiga (Dapagliflozin) And Insulin (Triple Therapy)
A study by Prof. Paresh Dandona, MD, Ph.D., shows that a combination of Victoza (Liraglutide), Forxiga (Dapagliflozin) and insulin can help in improving the blood sugar levels and weight loss in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
The researchers have tracked the patient's blood sugar levels, HbA1c and body weight with the combination drug.
The senior author of the study was Prof. Paresh Dandona, MD, Ph.D., the University of Buffalo. The study was published in the Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
The Risk Of Diabetic Retinopathy With The Couch Potato Behavior
A study by Paul Loprinzi from the University of Mississippi has found an association between the couch potato behavior (no physical activity) and diabetic retinopathy.
The researchers have tracked 282 patients of diabetes. The average age of the participants was 62 years. About 29 percent of them are suffering from mild to severe diabetic retinopathy.
The study has found that the risk of diabetic retinopathy may incrementally increase by 16 percent with every 60 minutes of daily inactivity.
The study was published in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology.
