Practical Diabetes Tips for the Budget Conscious

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

On Nutrition: Conversation about diabetes

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com

We were having a conversation in the lobby of the hospital where I work. And I knew right away that retired businessman Bob Dehlendorf is passionate about this topic. "Do you know what type 1 diabetes is?" he began. "Do you know what it's like to have type 1 diabetes? ... every day of the year? ... 24/7?" I'm a diabetes educator. I work daily with other dietitians and nurse educators to help people manage diabetes. But I do not have type 1 diabetes. I ask him to describe his experience. "I was diagnosed 30-plus years ago. At the time, I was smoking a couple of packs of cigarettes a day.

Fat cells play key role in development of type 2 diabetes

http://www.eurekalert.org

Cellular changes in fat tissue—not the immune system—lead to the "hyperinflammation" characteristic of obesity-related glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes, according to new research from the University of Cincinnati (UC). Cancer and cell biology experts say this new discovery about the cellular mechanisms behind glucose intolerance may provide a different target for drugs to treat type 2 diabetes as well as insights into how aggressive cancers form. The study, led by Jorge Moscat, PhD, is reported in the July 7, 2010, issue of the scientific journal Cell Metabolism.

Changes in Fat Cells May Pave Way for Type 2 Diabetes

http://www.businessweek.com

May result in the 'hyperinflammation' seen in the disease, researchers say. Cellular changes in fat tissue play a major role in the development of type 2 diabetes, a new study shows. University of Cincinnati researchers found that these changes in fat cells -- not the immune system, as previously thought -- are linked to the "hyperinflammation" seen in obesity-related glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes. The findings, they said, may eventually lead to the development of new drugs to treat type 2 diabetes and may also offer insights into the formation of aggressive cancers.

Gene linked to obesity-related diabetes

http://news.cincinnati.com

Changes in fat tissue itself - not an overreaction by the immune system - may play the key role in the eventual development of obesity-related diabetes, according to new research from the University of Cincinnati. The findings, published in Tuesday's edition of "Cell Metabolism," are already giving researchers at UC a new target for drug development for type 2 diabetes and certain aggressive cancers. Doctors already knew that obesity-related glucose intolerance and the type 2 diabetes that often follow are triggered by inflammation that occurs with obesity.

Women are often advised to stop drinking to avoid extra calories but a new research suggests that women who regularly consume moderate amounts of alcohol are 30 per cent less likely to gain weight than those who do not drink. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s hospital in Boston said the women who consumed two to three servings of beer or wine each day were less likely to gain extra pounds as they get older. The 13-year research found that women who did not drink at all gained the most weight.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

A study recently released by the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that initially normal-weight women who consumed a light to moderate amount of alcohol gained less weight than their abstaining counterparts. Researchers charted the drinking habits of 19,220 American women "aged 38.9 years or older who were free of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes mellitus and had a baseline body mass index within the normal range of 18.5 to less than 25" over the course of 13 years.
