Authors: Migdal A, Abrahamson M, Peters A, Vint N Abstract Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a growing problem in the United States, affecting 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the US population.

The American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes recommend individualizing the treatment approach to glucose control, considering factors such as age, health behaviors, comorbidities, and life expectancy. There are several validated treatment algorithm...

Metformin reverses stem cell‑like HepG2 sphere formation and resistance to sorafenib by attenuating epithelial‑mesenchymal transformation. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Aug 03;: Authors: Feng Y, Guo X, Huang X, Wu M, Li X, Wu S, Luo X Abstract Cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been reported to be associated with the recurrence and drug resistance of liver cancer. In the present study, stem cell‑like HepG2 cell spheres were enriched using stem cell conditioned culture medium. As expected, stem‑like HepG2 cell spheres exhibited increased resistance to sorafenib. Metformin, a common drug used to treat type 2 diab...

Publication date: Available online 15 August 2018Source: SteroidsAuthor(s): Julius Fink, Masahito Matsumoto, Yoshifumi TamuraAbstractSedentary lifestyle and over-nutrition are the main causes of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, the same causes are major triggers of hypogonadism. Many T2D patients show low testosterone levels while hypogonadal men seem to be prone to become diabetic. Testosterone plays a major role in the regulation of muscle mass, adipose tissue, inflammation and insulin sensitivity and is therefore indirectly regulating several metabolic pathways, while T2D is commonly triggered by insulin resi...

A growing number of studies suggest that getting a handle on a few key risk factors can bring type 2 diabetes under control. Lowering blood sugar, for instance, reduces the risk of additional health problems, such as heart disease and stroke related to the disease. But most of these studies have focused on studying one risk factor — like blood sugar, cholesterol or blood pressure — at a time. In a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers analyzed what happens to death rates and other health problems when people control up to five known risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The study ...

Oatmeal is a near-universally beloved breakfast. While it has historically been enjoyed across Europe, Russia and the U.S., oatmeal is rapidly gaining popularity in developing countries because of its affordability and its perceived health properties.
