[02/05/2011] Hyperglycemia can lead to severe skin changes, which immediately require treatment. Yet special therapies for diabetes are rare, in many cases dermatologists treat independent of diabetologists. Diabetes mellitus: A disease that makes your skin crawl - Read more

Research: Link Between Brain Molecule, Obesity and Diabetes

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[20/04/2011] The brain’s hypothalamus plays a key role in obesity and type 2 diabetes. Nerve cells in the hypothalamus detect nutrients and hormones circulating in the blood and then coordinate a complex series of behavioural and physiological responses to maintain a balance between calories eaten and calories burned. Obesity and diabetes can result when this regulatory mechanism goes awry.Research: Link Between Brain Molecule, Obesity and Diabetes - Read more
