#ALT# Studying Obesity-Related Metabolic Disorders with MRI Techniques

MRI techniques are highly versatile and are increasingly being used to study various aspects of obesity. In this webinar, listen to Dr. S. Sendhil Velan from the Singapore Bioimaging Consortium as he explains how MR Imaging can be used to image fat partitioning during obesity and better understand the pathophysiology of diabetes.

The recent report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in JAMA Pediatrics, highlights an estimated 18 percent among adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18,in the country and 24 percent among young adults, between 19 and 34 have prediabetes.
 
 Age of onset of obesity linked to higher diabetes risk
 
Age of onset of obesity linked to higher diabetes riskA new study shows that the timing of onset of obesity is linked to the risk of type 2 diabetes. The paper, published in the journal Diabetologia, examines how the direction of BMI change, as well as the age when obesity began and the number of years a person is obese (obese-years, the product of degree and duration of obesity) over the period of early adult life are reflected in diabetes risk.
 
 
 Diet with reduced carbohydrate content may be beneficial to patients with type 2 diabetes
 
Diet with reduced carbohydrate content may be beneficial to patients with type 2 diabetesPatients with type 2 diabetes improve their ability to regulate blood sugar levels if they eat food with a reduced carbohydrate content and an increased share of protein and fat.

New blood sugar tool could one day replace uncomfortable finger-prick testResearchers have developed a new way to monitor blood sugar levels that could replace the needle-prick method that people with diabetes currently use.
 
 
 Virome analysis reveals clues for increased risk of type 1 diabetes in children
 
Virome analysis reveals clues for increased risk of type 1 diabetes in childrenNew results from The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young study show an association between prolonged enterovirus infection and the development of autoimmunity to the insulin-producing pancreatic beta-cells that precedes type 1 diabetes.
 
 
 A future approach to diabetes care
 
A future approach to diabetes careIn Belize, where diabetes is rampant, patients need insulin every day to maintain proper blood sugar levels. But if people lack electricity or a refrigerator, they cannot store insulin at home.
