Insulin Resistance News and Research RSS Feed - Insulin Resistance News and Research

Insulin Resistance is a condition in which the body does not respond to insulin properly. This is most common in Type II diabetes or associated with obesity, ketoacidosis, infection, and certain rare conditions. Diminished effectiveness of insulin in lowering blood glucose levels requiring 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent hyperglycemia or ketosis.

Higher sugar-sweetened beverage intake, not diet soda linked to risk of developing prediabetes

Higher sugar-sweetened beverage intake, not diet soda linked to risk of developing prediabetes

Adult Americans who regularly consumed sugar-sweetened beverages (roughly one can of soda per day) had a 46 percent higher risk of developing prediabetes compared to low- or non-consumers over a 14-year period, according to a new epidemiological analysis led by scientists at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University.

Targeted precision medicine can eliminate cancer risk in patients with Type 2 diabetes

Targeted precision medicine can eliminate cancer risk in patients with Type 2 diabetes

The links between Type 2 diabetes and cancer are complex: people suffering from diabetes mellitus essentially have a higher risk of developing cancer but, on top of that, some diabetes drugs are also suspected of increasing the risk in some cases. [More]
Researchers shed light on how success of gut microbiome treatments may depend on genetics

Researchers shed light on how success of gut microbiome treatments may depend on genetics

Our gut microbiomes--the bacteria that live in our digestive tract--play major roles in our health. Scientists around the world are studying therapies that manipulate the microbiome, including probiotics (such as live bacterial cultures in yogurt), prebiotics (edible fibers meant to promote beneficial bacteria), antibiotics and transplants of microbes from healthy people.

Vitamin B12 deficiency during pregnancy may predispose children to type-2 diabetes

B12 deficiency during pregnancy may predispose children to metabolic problems such as type-2 diabetes, according to research presented today at the Society for Endocrinology's annual Conference in Brighton. [More]
High-protein diets may help prevent chronic diseases by reducing liver fat

High-protein diets may help prevent chronic diseases by reducing liver fat

According to a new nutritional study conducted by the German Institute of Human Nutrition on individuals with type 2 diabetes, high-protein diets reduced liver fat by up to 48 percent within six weeks. It did not matter whether the diet was mainly based on plant or animal protein. [More]
Researchers identify possible trigger of chronic inflammation in people with diabetes

Researchers identify possible trigger of chronic inflammation in people with diabetes

Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications. Now, in a surprise finding, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a possible trigger of chronic inflammation. [More]
Disrupted circadian rhythm may not help achieve maximum weight loss after bariatric surgery

Disrupted circadian rhythm may not help achieve maximum weight loss after bariatric surgery

A newly released basic science study of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) suggests that a functioning circadian clock, or sleeping at night and being awake during the day, can help patients achieve a higher amount of weight loss following the surgery. [More]
Three low-carb meals in a day can reduce insulin resistance by more than 30%, U-M study shows

Three low-carb meals in a day can reduce insulin resistance by more than 30%, U-M study shows

Three low-carb meals within 24 hours lowers post-meal insulin resistance by more than 30 percent, but high-carb meals sustain insulin resistance, a condition that leads to high blood pressure, prediabetes and diabetes, according to a University of Michigan study. [More]

Renal denervation improves the liver's sensitivity to insulin, research shows

Incapacitating specific nerves to the kidneys improves the work of insulin on another organ, the liver, according to research from Cedars-Sinai recently published in the journal Diabetes. [More]
Natural compound slows typical signs of aging in mice

Natural compound slows typical signs of aging in mice

Much of human health hinges on how well the body manufactures and uses energy. For reasons that remain unclear, cells' ability to produce energy declines with age, prompting scientists to suspect that the steady loss of efficiency in the body's energy supply chain is a key driver of the aging process.
