Intensive Lifestyle Intervention helped to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 05:28:06 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - Researchers found that overweight type-2 diabetes patients increased their chances of partial and complete remission with intensive lifestyle intervention. The results, which showed modest remission rates, were reported in the December 19, 2012 issue of JAMA.

Many people diagnosed with type-2 diabetes wonder if the disease is reversible. Diabetes is thought of as a disease that is progressive that will eventually lead to vascular and neuropathic damage. Other studies involving bariatric surgery on type 2 diabetes patients suggested that some cases could be resolved. There were no studies on the rate of remission with lifestyle modifications alone. This prompted Edward W. Gregg, Ph.D., of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, and his colleagues to investigate.

Fish Oil Supplements helped Heal Bedsores

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 03:39:17 +0000

The results were published in the British Journal of Nutrition and the American Journal of Critical Care.

Prof. Pierre Singer of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine explained that bedsores are a common problem for critically ill patients because of constant pressure on the skin and tissue. Bedsores form from a lack oxygen because the blood flow is reduced and there is skin wetness. Other studies have found fish oil supplements were helpful for lowering blood pressure and reducing inflammation of the skin and in joints.

Childhood Obesity risk factor can be calculated at Birth

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 05:16:53 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - Researchers have devised a method to calculate a baby’s chance of becoming obese during childhood. The risk factor is determined by the baby’s birth weight, the parent’s body mass index (BMI), how many people live in the household, the mother’s professional status, and if she smoked during pregnancy. The study was published today in the journal PLOS ONE.

The researchers developed this method to identify risk factors by analyzing information from 4,000 children in Finland that were followed starting in 1986. First, the researchers tried to determine genetic profiles that could predict obesity, but that failed to work. Then they looked at non-genetic information that was collected at the time of birth. The formula they finally developed worked in the Finnish cohort. So they tested the calculations using information collected in the US and Italy. With that data they were able to predict childhood obesity from the risk factors.

Mothers perceive Food and Chef more positively when Vegetables are served

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 06:14:02 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - While every mother knows that kids may complain about the vegetables on the plate, a study found that some mothers perceive vegetables as a better meal served by a more caring and loving person. Maybe over time, children too, will look forward to eating green beans and broccoli. The study involved interviewing 500 mothers in the United States to find out what they thought of meals served with vegetables and the people who prepared them.

The lead author, Brian Wansink, PhD, the John Dyson Professor of Marketing and Consumer Behavior at Cornell University, explained that only 23 percent of American dinners come with vegetables served with the main course.

Most people are aware of the health benefits of eating vegetables. However, if the preparer knew that their food was perceived as more desirable and the preparer was thought of as being more loving and caring, would they serve more meals with vegetables?

Poorer Children at higher risk for becoming Obese

Tue, 13 Nov 2012 05:02:25 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - Researcher from Rice University found that children living in poorer neighborhoods were at almost a 30 percent higher risk for becoming obese than children who were living in high-class neighborhoods. Another factor contributing to obesity risk was lower levels of education. The study did not investigate factors such as family composition or individual features.

Rice sociologists Rachel Tolbert Kimbro, director of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research's Urban Health Program, and Justin Denney, associate director of the program, investigated data collected on 17,530 children that were age 5. These children lived in 4,700 different neighborhoods nationwide. The researchers used factors such as socioeconomic status, maternal education, and television watching time to help determine their results.

(Best Syndiaction News) - Researchers found that changing the time when mice ate caused the animals to gain weight. The study results suggest that there is a relationship between brain clock molecules and fat cell storage. The researchers published their findings in Nature Medicine.

Georgios Paschos PhD, a research associate in the lab of Garret FitzGerald, MD, FRS director of the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, along with colleagues, studied the effects of deleting the clock gene Arntl (also called Bmal1) in mice.
