Lack of sleep affects fat metabolism

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Researchers found that a sleep schedule built to resemble a work week disrupted lipid metabolism and feelings of fullness after a meal. One night's recovery sleep helped... but not enough to return metabolism to normal.

Survey Shows Many Primary Care Doctors Are Unprepared to Help Patients Avoid Diabetes

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In a report on their findings in the Journal of General Internal Medicine (JGIM), the researchers say their survey of 1,000 randomly selected PCPs revealed significant gaps in the group’s overall knowledge of risk factors, diagnostic criteria and recommended management/prevention practices for prediabetes.

Newswise: Biomarker identified for early beta cell death in Type 1 diabetes

Article ID: 718589

Biomarker identified for early beta cell death in Type 1 diabetes

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Pancreatic beta cells produce insulin. Their death is a key feature of Type 1 diabetes, and loss starts long before diagnosis. Researchers now have identified an early biomarker of Type 1 diabetes-associated beta-cell loss in humans — microRNA-204, which is easily measured in blood serum.

New members found in a transcription factor complex that maintains beta cells

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A protein complex in beta cells that includes the Islet-1 transcription factor regulates genes important to develop and maintain functional beta cells. Now researchers report the complex also associates with enzymes RNF20 and RNF40, and disruption of either enzyme reduces insulin release.

Weight-Loss Surgery Associated with 40% Reduction in Risk of Death and Heart Complications in Patients with Diabetes and Obesity, Study Shows

Cleveland Clinic

A large Cleveland Clinic study shows that weight-loss surgery performed in patients with type 2 diabetes and obesity is associated with a lower risk of death and major adverse cardiovascular events than usual medical care. These patients also lost more weight, had better diabetes control, and used fewer medications for treatment of their diabetes and cardiovascular disease than those undergoing usual medical care. The observational study looked at nearly 2,300 patients who underwent metabolic surgery and 11,500 matched patients with similar characteristics who received usual medical care.
