Sex differences in food choices, adherence to dietary recommendations and plasma lipid profile in type 2 diabetes – The TOSCA.IT study
Diabetic women have a more adverse plasma lipid profile than men. Sex differences in dietary habits may play a role, but are little investigated. The study evaluates the quality of diet, adherence to the nutritional recommendations of the Diabetes and Nutrition Study Group and their relation with plasma lipid in men and women with diabetes.

However, it is not clear how safe this treatment is for elderly patients, especially Asians, who are known to be more insulin deficient than Caucasian individuals with a similar insulin resistance. Here, we report a case concerning an elderly patient wi...

The experimental mice were divided into aging control group, aging diabetes model group,...
Infants born prematurely were at increased risk of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in ensuing decades.
DiscussionThis overview will assess current evidence from systematic reviews for the association between cadmium exposure and risk of T2DM and other metabolic morbidities. This overview may be helpful for policy-makers and healthcare teams aiming to mitigate T2DM risk in populations at risk of cadmium exposure.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42019125956
CONCLUSIONS: Liraglutide could upregulate autophagy to decrease lipid over-accumulation via the AMPK/mTOR pathway. PMID: 31787541 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
More than 30 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, and 90 to 95% are type 2, the CDC says, and metformin is the fourth-most prescribed drug in the United States.
Doctors often prescribe metformin for type 2 diabetes. A new mouse study on its liver mechanisms may explain its wider benefits for health and life span.
TYPE 2 diabetes is a condition which affects a person ’s blood sugar control, and left untreated, complications such as heart disease and stroke can occur. To prevent or keep the condition in check, some experts recommend drinking a certain type of water.
