High-Fat Meals Could Be More Harmful to Males Than Females, According to New Obesity Research

Male and female brains are not equal when it comes to the biological response to a high-fat diet. Cedars-Sinai Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute scientist Deborah Clegg, PhD, and a team of international investigators found that the brains of male laboratory mice exposed to the same high-fat diet as their female counterparts developed brain inflammation and heart disease that were not seen in the females.

Diabetic Men with Low Testosterone Run Higher Risk of Developing Atherosclerosis

Men who have low testosterone and Type 2 diabetes face a greater risk of developing atherosclerosis – a condition where plaque builds up in the arteries – than men who have diabetes and normal testosterone levels, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Set of Molecules Found to Link Insulin Resistance in the Brain to Diabetes

A key mechanism behind diabetes may start in the brain, with early signs of the disease detectable through rising levels of molecules not previously linked to insulin signaling, according to a study led by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai published today in the journal Cell Metabolism.

Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Praises Stronger Screening Guidelines for Diabetes

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics applauds the work of the United States Preventative Services Task Force for amending its recommendations on screening for diabetes based on its review of current best evidence. USPSTF recommends screening for diabetes and prediabetes should now be performed for all adults over at 45, and that uniform insurance coverage for these critical screenings will help families have access to services enabling them to live a healthy life.
