A Soda a Day Increases Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

New research published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes) suggests that drinking one-12 oz serving size of sugar-sweetened soft drink daily can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 22 percent. Most studies on these matters have been conducted in North America, but the authors, led by Dr Dora Romaguera, of the Imperial College London, UK, examined data from eight countries in Europe, participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC study, including UK, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, and the Netherlands). The study included more than […]

Diabetics Do Not Need to Limit Fruit Intake

Patients who were newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) need not limit their fruit intake, as patients who had limited fruit intake did not show any improvement in glycemic control, according to a new study published online in Nutrition Journal.  Researchers found in their study that patients who were given high fruit intake showed the same positive results as those who had fruit restriction. Despite the lack of any trial evidence, some health professionals advise diabetic patients to limit intake of fruits because of its high sugar content. Patients are normally advised to increase consumption of a variety […]

Sit Less to Reduce Diabetes Risk

A new study published in Diabetologia suggests that patients with known risk factors for type 2 diabetes could benefit more from reducing sedentary time (like reducing sitting time by one and half hours) than simply exercising regularly. Patients at risk are presently advised to engage in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) for a minimum of 2.5 hours per week.  However, the study led by Joseph Henson, suggests that patients should in fact be advised to lessen inactivity or lying down or sitting time. Patients were analyzed from two studies: Project STAND (Sedentary Time and Diabetes), a study that involved about 150 […]

Diet Soda Consumption Increases Risk for Diabetes

New research reveals that high consumption of artificially sweetened beverages, particularly diet soda, increases women’s risk for type 2 diabetes. Guy Fagherazzi, from the Center for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health, Villejuif, France, and colleagues report their findings in the recent online publication of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The researchers suggest there are some biological mechanisms that may explain their findings. However, they did not find a cause and effect relationship. In the study, the investigators analyzed data from a large study involving more than 66,000 French women. During their follow-up from 1993-2007, more than 1300 women […]

Diabetes Linked to High HFCS Consumption

Countries where more high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is found in their food supply are more likely to have higher type 2 diabetes rates than countries that do not use it, researchers report. According to researchers from USC and the University of Oxford they have found that in countries with higher use of HFCS the average prevalence of type 2 diabetes was 8%, compared with 6.7% in other countries. Their report was recently published in the journal Global Public Health. These results were found after adjustments were made for body mass index, population, and gross domestic product. Michael Goran, the […]
