Eating Chocolate Each Day Could Reduce Heart Disease and Diabetes Risk

FINAL_LAYOUT_01_amend_27_04_2016.jpg

A new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition appears to back up the adage that a little of what you fancy does you good. Including a small amount of chocolate each day could help prevent diabetes and insulin resistance. That’s one of the research findings from the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH), the University of Warwick Medical School, the University of South Australia and the University of Maine.

Hearing Impairment Linked to Type 2 Diabetes

A review of studies of possible linkages between type 2 diabetes and hearing impairment concludes there is compelling evidence that diabetes can damage the auditory system, and that clinicians should include hearing testing in managing type 2 diabetes.

Inflammatory Protein Involved in Autoimmune Diseases Has Healing Potential

David-Lo.jpg

Researchers in the School of Medicine at the University of California, Riverside have found that TNF-alpha, a proinflammatory molecule and protein produced by the body’s cells during infection, also promotes healing. A player in autoimmune diseases, TNF-alpha performs this dual role by promoting the immune system regulatory responses, which it does by first inducing immune surveillance cells, called M cells. The finding could lead to more targeted drug therapies for treating diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes.

Double Advantage of Potential New Diabetes Treatment

Blocking the hormone that raises sugar levels in the blood could increase insulin levels while keeping blood sugar levels down. The findings in mice, to be published in eLife, point to a novel way to treat diabetes - but only in some patients. They also challenge the benefits of the strategy in severely diabetic patients.

Diabetes Drug, Metformin, Lowers Risk of Heart Disease Deaths Better Than Sulfonylureas, New Analysis Shows

A new analysis of 204 studies involving more than 1.4 million people suggests that metformin, the most frequently prescribed stand-alone drug for type 2 diabetes, reduces the relative risk of a patient dying from heart disease by about 30 to 40 percent compared to its closest competitor drug, sulfonylurea.
