How to get rid of visceral fat: Specific vegetables could reduce the belly fat
EXCESS visceral fat stored inside the abdominal cavity is strongly associated with insulin resistance - a prerequisite for type 2 diabetes. This is triggered by the active fat releasing retinol-binding protein 4 .
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams put his type 2 diabetes into remission with a plant-based diet. As New York City's likely next mayor, he'll aim to move residents in a'plant-forward'direction.Medscape Medical News
TYPE 2 diabetes is an impairment in the way the body regulates and uses sugar to function. The chronic condition results in too much sugar being passed around the body and, eventually, high blood sugar levels can cause devastation to the circulatory, nervous and immune systems. There are typical symptoms of type 2 diabetes, but also some obscure flare-ups that are important not to ignore if you have the condition.
Conclusion: We showed that decreased pancreatic perfusion did not relate to beta-cell dysfunction in early stages of T2DM development, but it was related to VAT, insulin resistance, and higher fasting glycemia. Furthermore, lower pancreatic perfusion was related to VAT, insulin resistance, and higher fasting glycemia.Ann Nutr Metab
The objective of the present study was to examine the association between constipation and diabetic kidney disease (DKD).MethodsIn total, 4826 Japanese outpatients with type 2 diabetes were classified according to presence or absence of constipation (defecation frequency
β cell dysfunction and failure are driving forces of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) pathogenesis. Investigating the underlying mechanisms of β cell dysfunction may provide novel targets for the development of next generation therapy for T2DM. Epigenetics is the study of gene expression changes that do not involve DNA sequence changes, including DNA methylation, histone modification, and non-coding RNAs. Specific epigenetic signatures at all levels, including DNA methylation, chromatin accessibility, histone modification, and non-coding RNA, define β cell identity during embryonic development, postnatal matu...
Background and Aims: Low systolic blood pressure (SBP) levels while being treated with antihypertensives may cause hypotension-related adverse events (hrAEs), especially in the elderly, women, and frail patients. We aimed to assess the association between the occurrence of hrAEs and low SBP levels, age, sex, and polypharmacy among patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) treated with antihypertensives.Methods: In this cohort study, we used the Groningen Initiative to ANalyse Type 2 diabetes Treatment (GIANTT) database which includes patients managed for T2D in primary care from the north of the Netherlands. Patients treated wit...
The rs540467 SNP in the NDUFB6 gene, encoding a mitochondrial complex I subunit, has been shown to modulate adaptations to exercise training. Interaction effects with diabetes mellitus remain unclear. We assessed associations of habitual physical activity (PA) levels with metabolic variables and examined a possible modifying effect of the rs540467 SNP. Volunteers with type 2 (n=242), type 1 diabetes (n=250) or normal glucose tolerance (control; n=139) were studied at diagnosis and subgroups with type 1 (n=96) and type 2 diabetes (n=95) after 5 years. Insulin sensitivity was measured by hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamps, o...
Microalbuminuria is an early sign of vascular complications of type 2 diabetes and predicts cardiovascular disease and mortality. Monomeric and oligomeric flavanols (MOFs) are linked to improved vascular health. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of 3 months MOFs on albuminuria and endothelial function markers in patients with type 2 diabetes and microalbuminuria.
