Insulin sensitivity and RBP4
The serum levels of retinol-binding protein-4 (RBP4) are increased in patients with type 2 diabetes and correlate positively with several components of the metabolic syndrome. In rodents, circulating RBP4 correlate positively with insulin resistance and RBP4 directly induces insulin resistance. While RBP4 production is reported in human adipocytes, data on any association between RBP4 and insulin sensitivity in humans is inconclusive. Vestergaard and colleagues report that insulin resistance induced by either ghrelin infusion in hypopituitary men or GH treatment in healthy young men is not associated with serum RBP4. Read...

Vegetarian Diets Associated With Lower Risk Of Death
Vegetarian diets are associated with reduced death rates in a study of more than 70,000 Seventh-day Adventists with more favorable results for men than women, according to a report published Online First by JAMA Internal Medicine, a JAMA Network publication. The possible relationship between diet and mortality is an important area of study. Vegetarian diets have been associated with reductions in risk for several chronic diseases, including hypertension, metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus and ischemic heart disease (IHD), according to the study background.

Got Bipolar? You're at Risk for Metabolic Syndrome, Too
A study found that people with bipolar disorder are up to twice as likely as the general population to have metabolic syndrome, a cluster of symptoms that increase your risk of heart problems, stroke and diabetes. The study, published in the Journal of Affective Disorders, also found that "co-occurrence of metabolic syndrome in the bipolar population is associated with a more complex illness presentation, less favorable response to treatment, and adverse course and outcome." In other words, for people with bipolar disorder, both are likely to be more serious and harder to treat. Why are people with bipolar more ...

No evidence Nordic diet prevents heart disease
Conclusion This was a well-designed randomised controlled trial that took place across several Nordic locations. The study took careful clinical measures of elements of metabolic syndrome at several points during the trial, and used food diaries at regular intervals to check compliance to the assigned diet. However, it provides no reliable proof that the ‘healthy’ Nordic diet is any better than the ‘average’ Nordic diet at improving components of metabolic syndrome and, in turn, no proof that it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. Importantly, this study found no significant results for its...

No proof coffee causes obesity and diabetes
Conclusion This rodent research suggests that mice given a high-fat diet supplemented with the polyphenol chlorogenic acid (CGA) fared worse than those given a high-fat diet. But this was only in terms of measures of glucose regulation that are related to the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The researchers point out that other studies have found that giving CGA to mice improved measures of their glucose regulation. When there are contradictory results from different studies like this, it can indicate that the biological processes involved are not fully understood. Because of this, these results are not likely to b...
