15069010 tn?1438227790 Romaguera's team wanted to establish whether a link between sugary drinks and diabetes risk also existed in Europe.

915277 tn?1252576713 Europe has come out with a study that implies that Lantus causes cancer. Anyone out there on Lantus, and have you heard about this and will you stop using Lantus due to this news?? What bothers me about this news is that the study seems a bit shaky...but, I also feel, where there is smoke, can fire be far behind??

Avatar m tn I do, however, continue to recommend 162 milligrams daily (two low-dose aspirin) to patients who already have coronary heart disease, have already had a heart attack or stroke, or who are at high or moderate risk for one and not at risk for gastrointestinal bleeding. In addition, I now follow the recently revised American Diabetes Association guidelines for aspirin use in people with diabetes.
Avatar n tn Perhaps they could point you in the direction of finding an open study somewhere. Also, Joslin Diabetes Center may be a good place to check. Let us know if you find any promising leads as we all would be interested in knowing the latest on these long awaited monitors!
Avatar m tn One possibility that I think you might want to discuss with your doctor is the recently found association between elevated GGT and cardiovascular disease or elevated GGT as a marker/risk factor for cardiovascular disease. GGT can also suggest insulin resistance and/or diabetes or the risk of diabetes. It's tied up in the metabolic syndrome which I don't know a lot about - only that it can be problematic. Let me find a link - if I can. I found this but it's a bit heady for me.

Avatar m tn This study suggests an independent mechanism linking serum GGT to coronary heart disease. Even though the strength of association appeared to be modest among all subjects, stronger associations were observed among subjects aged <60 and among alcohol drinkers. Especially, measurement of serum GGT among type-2 diabetics may be helpful to predict the future risk of CHD. Fatty Liver and elevated GGT Fatty liver is one of the most frequent liver conditions diagnosed in the Western world.
Avatar m tn European Study Confirms Coffee Dramatically Lowers Liver Cancer Risk Researchers took data from a large European study that examined the link between cancer and nutrition in 486,799 people over an 11-year period and found that those who drank tea and coffee remained at lower risk of liver cancer.

17218185 tn?1454681273 I've learned that Risperdal has potentially VERY bad side effects like a 1 in 10 risk of Diabetes! The doc said Guanfacine was worthless anyways, but it worked for us...we'll keep waiting for it to be released here in Belgium. Oh, by the way, my eldest son has Tourettes, too, but I didn't know meds existed for it back then. My little brother had TS also, so I am overly familiar with this illness. Are there any "natural" treatments that you can personally say have worked for you?

Avatar m tn Barber's interest in the topic arose when he encountered a 30-something stroke patient who had none of the typical risk factors associated with stroke such as hypertension or diabetes -- but the patient smoked pot. He and his colleagues then searched the literature and found similar case reports associating marijuana smoking with stroke in younger adults who did not have typical risk factors.
Avatar m tn Another study – put out several years earlier by the American Medical Association – also found that statins increase diabetes risk. The paper showed that while statins lowered cholesterol, they raised insulin levels. And that’s a precursor for diabetes. What’s worse, raised insulin leads to extra body fat… higher blood pressure… and increased inflammation. All of which contribute to heart disease.
Avatar m tn According to a University of Buffalo study printed in the journal Diabetes Care, 40 percent of obese participants had lower-than-normal testosterone readings. According to a report in Strength and Conditioning Journal, researchers say that guzzling the alcohol equivalent of five or more drinks appears to suppress the production of testosterone. Smaller doses (one to two drinks) appear to have little or no immediate effect on testosterone. So keep things moderate: Two drinks a day.
