Novel Lipid Lowering Medication Improves Blood Sugar Control in Type 2 Diabetes

Volanesorsen, an experimental lipid-lowering medication, improved insulin sensitivity and glucose control by significantly decreasing patients’ overall hemoglobin A1c – the standard clinical measurement of blood glucose levels for diabetics – in a new study reported by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The results are published online this month in Diabetes Care.

Residents on the South Side say cancer, violence prevention and sexually transmitted infections are among their top health concerns, according to the latest comprehensive assessment conducted by the University of Chicago Medicine. The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), published online in mid-June, also identifies diabetes among adults, pediatric asthma and pediatric obesity as other critical health issues faced by South Siders. In addition to uncovering the community’s health needs, the report also includes a plan to advance outreach, prevention and education in those six health areas.

Patients with Inflammation More Likely to Develop Diabetes After Transplant

Up to 30 percent of people who receive organ transplants will develop diabetes, but researchers are unsure why. A new study in kidney transplant recipients suggests that patients with more inflammation prior to surgery are more likely to develop diabetes than those with less overall inflammation, and that a patient’s fat stores also play a role.

Women’s Long Work Hours Linked to Alarming Increases in Cancer, Heart Disease

Women who put in long hours for the bulk of their careers may pay a steep price: life-threatening illnesses, including heart disease and cancer. Work weeks that averaged 60 hours or more over three decades appear to triple the risk of diabetes, cancer, heart trouble and arthritis for women, according to new research from The Ohio State University.

Age, Obesity, Dopamine Appear to Influence Preference for Sweet Foods

As young people reach adulthood, their preferences for sweet foods typically decline. But a Washington University School of Medicine research team, led by M. Yanina Pepino, PhD, and Tamara Hershey, PhD, has found that for people with obesity, the drop-off may not be as steep, and the brain’s reward system may be operating differently.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Link Specific Enzyme to Process of Metabolic Dysfunction in Aging

Researchers at Mayo Clinic have identified the enzyme, called CD38, that is responsible for the decrease in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) during aging, a process that is associated with age-related metabolic decline. Results demonstrated an increase in the presence of CD38 with aging in both mice and humans. The results appear today in Cell Metabolism.
