DIABETES could be prevented by following a weight management programme like Weight Watchers, according to researchers.
Patients sent on the commercial programme also recorded weight loss of 22lbs (10kg) after just a year on average - which keeps type 2 diabetes at bay, researchers led by Bromley Council found.
PEOPLE sent to Weight Watchers by their doctor are a third more likely to avoid developing type 2 diabetes, according to new research.
Conclusion: The established real‐time PCR assay is a sensitive, specific, and repeatable method for quantitatively detecting crAssphage, and thus is a very useful tool for investigating the molecular epidemiology, dynamics, and pathogenicity of crAssphage in human diseases.

RESUMEN La disglucemia en el paciente cr ítico (hiperglucemia, hipoglucemia, variabilidad de la glucemia y el tiempo en rango) es un marcador de severidad de la enfermedad crítica asociada a mayor mortalidad. Sin embargo, dicho impacto parece atenuarse en los pacientes con diabetes mellitus, en particular en aquellos con mal control gluc émico premórbido lo cual ha sido denominado "paradoja de la diabetes". Este fenómeno determina que en los nuevos protocolos de control de la glucemia deban ser contemplados los valores de hemoglobina glucosilada (HbA1c) al ingreso a unidad de cu...
