  • Obesity intervention needed before pregnancy
    New research supports the need for dietary and lifestyle interventions before overweight and obese women become pregnant.
  • Type 2 diabetes: A therapeutic avenue is emerging
    Restoring the action of insulin is one of the keys to fighting type 2 diabetes. Researchers are developing a therapeutic strategy that uses the properties of an enzyme (hormone-sensitive lipase) which, when stimulating fatty-acid synthesis in the fat cells, has a beneficial effect on insulin action.
  • Single workout can boost metabolism for days
    A new study shows neurons in mice that influence metabolism are active for up to two days after a single workout.
  • Blood vessel growth key to healthy fat tissue, research shows
    New research shows that inhibiting a protein within blood vessels stimulates new blood vessel growth, resulting in healthier fat tissue (adipose) and lower blood sugar levels. The findings provide key insight into how improving blood vessel growth could help to mitigate serious health problems that arise with obesity, such as diabetes.
  • Gene that lets you eat as much as you want holds promise against obesity
    It sounds too good to be true, but a novel approach that might allow you to eat as much as you want without gaining weight could be a reality in the near future. When a single gene known as RCAN1 was removed in mice and they were fed a high fat diet, they failed to gain weight, even after gorging on high fat foods for prolonged periods.
