Even 1 extra kilo of deep belly fat can increase diabetes risk in women, reveals study

Though excess body fat is a known risk for many metabolic conditions, including type 2 diabetes, recent research has been gathering evidence to show that the amount of body fat is not the only factor that contributes to risk

Even 1 extra kilo of deep belly fat can increase diabetes risk in women, reveals studyResearchers already know that excess body fat can increase the risk of diabetes, but a new study shows that one form of fat, in particular – the ‘invisible’ one that accumulates around organs and intestines – can heighten this risk more than seven times, at least in women. Now, research from Uppsala University in Sweden […]

Cocoa shells may help prevent obesity-induced insulin resistance, finds study

Obesity alters cells in ways that can lead to long-term health problems. Examples of obesity-induced cell changes include inflammation and damage to metabolic functions, such as the ability to use insulin and make energy

Cocoa shells may help prevent obesity-induced insulin resistance, finds studyNow, new research from the University of Illinois at Urbana‐Champaign and other institutions has shown that extract of cocoa bean shells contains three compounds that could potentially reduce or prevent some of these cell changes. Cocoa, green tea, and coffee also contain the same three compounds, which are: protocatechuic acid, epicatechin, and procyanidin B2. A […]

Shorter people are at higher risk of type 2 diabetes, reveals new study

Short stature is associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, according to a new study in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes)

Shorter people are at higher risk of type 2 diabetes, reveals new studyTall stature is associated with a lower risk, with each 10cm difference in height associated with a 41% decreased risk of diabetes in men and a 33% decreased risk in women. The increased risk in shorter individuals may be due to higher liver fat content and a less favourable profile of cardiometabolic risk factors, say […]

70-90% of Indians are vitamin D deficient with risk of having diabetes and hypertension

A 2019 pan-India study demonstrates the link between vitamin D deficiency and hypertension and type 2 diabetes

70-90% of Indians are vitamin D deficient with risk of having diabetes and hypertensionUp to 70-90% of Indians are vitamin D deficient, and the deficiency can have adverse consequences for skeletal development in babies and children, and bone health in adults. Moreover, the deficiency is linked to chronic disease, including diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. A 2019 pan-India study shows the link between vitamin D deficiency and hypertension […]

High-fat diet and gut bacteria interlinked to insulin resistance: Reveals study

Researchers have discovered how our choice of diet can weaken our gut immune system and lead to the development of diabetes

High-fat diet and gut bacteria interlinked to insulin resistance: Reveals studyInsulin resistance occurs when the body stops responding normally to insulin, a hormone that helps the body process sugar. Developing insulin resistance can lead to type 2 diabetes, which is a metabolic condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Obesity is a significant risk factor for insulin resistance and diabetes. But how and why does […]
