  • Title: Salk study may offer drug-free intervention to prevent obesity and diabetes | Wheat Foods Network
    Descriptive info: Salk study may offer drug-free intervention to prevent obesity and diabetes.. Salk Institute for Biological Studies.. 05/17/2012.. Scientists have long assumed that the cause of diet-induced obesity in mice is nutritional; however, the Salk findings suggest that the spreading of caloric intake through the day may contribute, as well, by perturbing metabolic pathways governed by the circadian clock and nutrient sensors.. The Salk study found the body stores fat while eating and starts to burn fat and breakdown cholesterol into beneficial bile acids only after a few hours of fasting.. When eating frequently, the body continues to make and store fat, ballooning fat cells and liver cells, which can result in liver damage.. Under such conditions the liver also continues to make glucose, which raises blood sugar levels.. Time-restricted feeding, on the other hand, reduces production of free fat, glucose and cholesterol and makes better use of them.. It cuts down fat storage and turns on fat burning mechanisms when the animals undergo daily fasting, thereby keeping the liver cells healthy and reducing overall body fat.. The daily feeding-fasting cycle activates liver enzymes that breakdown cholesterol into bile acids, spurring the metabolism of brown fat - a type of "good fat" in our body that converts extra calories to heat.. Thus the body literally burns fat during fasting.. The liver also shuts down glucose production for several hours, which helps lower blood glucose.. The extra glucose that would have ended up in the blood - high blood sugar is a hallmark of diabetes - is instead used to build molecules that repair damaged cells and make new DNA.. This helps prevent chronic inflammation,  ...   and with adverse side effects," he says.. The multimillion-dollar question is what these findings mean for humans.. Public health surveys on nutrition have focused on both the quality and quantity of diet, but they have inherent flaws such as sampling bias, response bias and recall errors that make the results questionable.. Thus, says Panda, with the current data it is difficult to connect when we eat, what we eat with how much weight we gain.. "The take-home message," says Panda, "is that eating at regular times during the day and overnight fasting may prove to be beneficial, but, we will have to wait for human studies to prove this.. The good news, he adds, is that most successful human lifestyle interventions were first tested in mice, so he and his team are hopeful their findings will follow suit.. If following a time-restricted eating schedule can prevent weight gain by 10 to 20 percent, it will be a simple and effective lifestyle intervention to contain the obesity epidemic..

  • Title: American Diabetes Association and European Association for the Study of Diabetes Issue Joint Position Statement on Hyperglycemia Treatment | Wheat Foods Network
    Descriptive info: American Diabetes Association and European Association for the Study of Diabetes Issue Joint Position Statement on Hyperglycemia Treatment.. Colleen Fogarty, American Diabetes Association.. 04/19/2012.. After several years of planning, discussion and review, new guidelines for managing elevated blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes, developed jointly by the American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD), are being published concurrently in the Association's journal, April 19 online edition of.. Diabetes Care.. and in EASD's journal,.. Diabetologia.. The new guidelines are less prescriptive than those previously in place, and call for a more patient-centered approach that allows for individual patient needs, preferences and tolerances and takes into account differences in age and disease progression.. The need for a joint task force to review and revise the guidelines was driven by the "increasingly complex and to some extent controversial" nature of glycemic management for type 2 diabetes, the "widening array of pharmacological agents now available, mounting concerns about their potential adverse effects and new uncertainties regarding the benefits of intensive glycemic control on macrovascular complications," according to the joint statement.. The guidelines call for providing all patients with diabetes education, in an individual or group setting, which focuses on dietary intervention and the importance of increased physical activity, as well as weight management, when appropriate.. They encourage developing individualized treatment plans built around a patient's specific symptoms, co-morbidities, age, weight, racial/ethnic/gender differences and lifestyles.. Diabetes Care editor William Cefalu, MD notes in his accompanying editorial that the subject of how to manage type 2 diabetes generates a great deal of debate among researchers in the field, with those who wish to use an algorithm-based management plan to provide consistent treatment guidelines for providers on one side and those who feel that treatment should be based on the pathophysiology, on the other.. "The most  ...   manifests differently in different people and the best way for one person to manage it may not work for someone else.. If we encourage people to work with their health care providers to find an individualized personal plan that works well for them and fits their lifestyle and personal needs, it has a higher chance for success in controlling glucose and decreasing the risk of long term complications.. Welcoming this new statement, EASD President, Prof.. Andrew J.. Boulton underlined the importance of individualizing diabetes treatment.. Prof.. Boulton commented that, "The new guidelines were prepared using the best available evidence.. Diabetes is a condition which affects people in a multitude of ways: the new guidelines take a more holistic approach, focusing on treating the patient as an individual and understanding that treatments need to be 'made to measure,' an approach that will likely improve not only patient care, but also quality of life.. Diabetes Care,.. published by the American Diabetes Association, is the leading peer-reviewed journal of clinical research into one of the nation's leading causes of death by disease.. Diabetes also is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke, as well as the leading cause of adult blindness, kidney failure, and non-traumatic amputations.. The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight to Stop Diabetes and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes.. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes.. Founded in 1940, our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes..

  • Title: CDC report finds U.S. population has good levels of some essential vitamins and nutrients | Wheat Foods Network
    Descriptive info: CDC report finds U.. population has good levels of some essential vitamins and nutrients.. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.. 04/02/2012.. Overall, the U.. population has good levels of vitamins A and D and folate in the body, but some groups still need to increase their levels of vitamin D and iron, according to the Second National Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition, released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.. The report offers a limited but generally favorable review of the nation’s nutrition status although the findings do not necessarily indicate that people consume healthy and balanced diets.. CDC’s Division of Laboratory Sciences in the National Center for Environmental Health measured these indicators in blood and urine samples collected from participants in CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.. Data are presented for the years 1999-2006, with emphasis on newly available data for 2003-2006.. “These findings are a snapshot of our nation’s overall nutrition status,” said Christopher Portier, Ph.. D.. , director of CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health.. “Measurements of blood and urine levels of these nutrients are critical because they show us whether the sum of nutrient intakes from foods and vitamin supplements is too low, too high, or sufficient.. ”.. The report also found that deficiency rates for vitamins and nutrients vary by age, gender, or race/ethnicity and can be as high as 31 percent for vitamin D deficiency in non-Hispanic blacks.. “Research shows that good nutrition can help lower people’s risk for many chronic diseases.. For most nutrients, the low deficiency rates, less than 1 to 10 percent, are encouraging, but higher deficiency rates in certain age and race/ethnic groups are a concern and need additional attention,” said Christine Pfeiffer, Ph.. , lead researcher, in the Division of Laboratory Sciences in CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health.. CDC’s Second Nutrition Report establishes blood and urine reference levels for 58 biochemical indicators; more than twice as many indicators as its first report, published in 2008.. The report includes first-time data for a new indicator of iron deficiency and for 24 healthy and unhealthy fatty acids.. Folic acid fortification: A sustained public health success.. The report found that the fortification of cereal-grain products with folic acid, which began in 1998, has had a sustained positive impact on blood folate levels.. The report shows folate deficiency dropped to less than 1 percent after fortification.. The report also shows that blood  ...   border on insufficiency in women of childbearing age.. Findings were not as encouraging with regard to the iodine status in young women (20-39 years of age).. This age group had iodine levels that were just above iodine insufficiency.. The young women also had the lowest iodine levels among any age group of women.. Iodine is an essential component of thyroid hormones that regulate human growth and development.. Iodine deficiency disorders include mental retardation, hypothyroidism, goiter, cretinism, and varying degrees of other growth and developmental abnormalities.. Iodine is especially important in women during childbearing years to ensure the best possible brain development of the fetus during pregnancy.. First measurements of new iron deficiency marker and of both healthy and unhealthy fatty acids.. Using a new marker of iron status, the report indicates higher rates of iron deficiency in Mexican-American children aged 1 to 5 years (11 percent) and in non-Hispanic black (16 percent) and Mexican-American women (13 percent) of childbearing age (12 to 49 years) when compared to other race/ethnic groups.. The new iron marker measurements will help clinicians better interpret iron status in individuals, especially in persons with chronic disease that includes inflammation, such as certain cancers.. The report provides first-time data on blood levels of fatty acids in the U.. population.. These include heart healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as saturated fatty acids that increase risk of heart disease.. The report found heart healthy polyunsaturated fatty acid levels in plasma differ by race/ethnicity.. These first time measurements provide a baseline that will allow CDC to track fatty acid levels over time, which will evaluate our nation’s progress toward heart healthy diets.. Most comprehensive biochemical assessment of the nation’s nutrition status.. CDC’s report is a detailed biochemical assessment of the nutrition status of the U.. It is the second in a series of publications that provide an ongoing assessment of the U.. population’s nutrition status.. The series of reports provide information specific to population groups defined by age, gender, and race/ethnicity to show how these factors affect nutrition status in the United States.. CDC plans further analysis of report data that will help identify the influence of socio-economic and lifestyle factors on levels of nutrients in blood and urine.. The agency also plans to continue its assessment of the nation’s nutrition status in future reports.. For more information on the nutrition report, visit.. http://www.. cdc.. gov/nutritionreport/..
