A healthy vegetarian diet can slow progression of prediabetes
A Swedish study reports that a plant-based diet may reduce the risk of prediabetes advancing to type 2 diabetes, data published in theJournal of Internal Medicine.Healthline
Conclusions: These results demonstrated that there was no evidence of a relationship between ApoE and PAD. PMID: 32211081 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: This study supports that high uric acid concentrations are associated with increased diabetes risk, independent of other known risk factors. These data expand on well-established associations between SUA level and metabolic syndrome, and extend the link to the future risk of type 2 diabetes.
In conclusion, our case-control and meta-analysis studies did not indicate an association between the analyzed UCP2 polymorphisms and DKD.
ABSTRACT: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is an increasingly urgent public health issue in the United States. Prevention through early detection and education can help decrease the prevalence and complications of the disease. A nursing faculty member and a postgraduate year one pharmacy resident collaborated to provide diabetes screening and education at a local festival in rural Alabama. The prevalence of diabetes in Alabama is approximately 1.6 times higher than the national average. A glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test is the gold standard for diabetes diagnosis and is relatively quick and inexpensive. At the event, 38 partici...

In particular, the increased prevalence of AD has imposed tremendous psychological and financial burdens on society. Growing evidence suggests both AD and T2D share many similar pathological traits. AD is characterized as a metabolic disorder whereby the glucose metabolism in the brain is impaired. This closely resembles the ...
This study investigated the short-term responses of the gut microbiota composition to diets with different fat contents. Experimental animals were fed either a a normal diet (ND) or a high-fat diet (HFD) for 20 weeks and the microbial composition was evaluated at 10 and 20 weeks. In agreement with previous studies, body weight and the expression of colonic cytokines increased with higher dietary fat content. The diversity of the gut microbiota was significantly influenced by both age and diet, and two variable showed significant interactions. At the phylum level, the proportion of Actinobacteria was si...
This randomized trial compares the effects of apabetalone (an inhibitor of bromodomain 2 and extraterminal protein, 2 epigenetic “readers”) vs placebo on major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), type 2 diabetes, and low HDL cholesterol level.
