A study presented at the 40th Annual Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes ( EASD ), Munich, Germany, has showed that Rosuvastatin ( Crestor ) lowers LDL-cholesterol and raise ...


Mice with a mutation in a gene called "Clock," which helps drive circadian rhythm, ate significantly more and gained more weight. The finding could help explain why disrupted sleep patterns, partic ...


Researchers at Johns Hopkins have determined that for subjects aged 55 to 75 years, a moderate program of physical exercise generally maintains bone mass and, in some cases, offers modest improvements ...


Researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have found that patients with metabolic syndrome and a moderate level of calcium in the coronary arteries had a greater chance of having blockage of those ar ...


Data from a 16-week Phase II study showed that Pramlintide ( Symlin ) reduces body weight in obese subjects. Pramlintide is a synthetic analog of human amylin, a hormone known to play a role in the ...


Orlistat ( Xenical ), a drug that, combined with diet, exercise and behavioral therapy, reduces fat absorption, appears helpful for improving weight management in obese adolescents, compared with plac ...


Weight loss medicine Xenical ( Orlistat ) has received European approval to include clinical, safety and efficacy data in the label on the use in obese adolescents aged 12 years or over. The label ch ...


A review of 22 studies suggests three commonly used drugs may help type 2 diabetes patients lose small amounts of weight, although long-term benefits are not clear. Prozac, known generically as Fl ...


Researchers discovered how excess body fat can lead to the onset of diabetes. One out of 12 people in the western world suffers from type 2 diabetes. Worldwide, 150 million people are diabetic and ...


Researchers at the University of Minnesota have shown that increasing the concentration of a key regulator involved in glucose metabolism can improve the way the liver produces and disposes of the glu ...


A weight control protein with a key role in the brain's ability to monitor body fat content may yield new approaches for treating obesity and type 2 diabetes. The findings in mice further suggest t ...


Researchers at the University of Cincinnati ( UC ) have identified a possible new target for treating obesity and diabetes. The new target, a molecule called hVps34, is activated by amino acids en ...


Laboratory model missing one copy of Prox1 gene exhibits abnormal increase in fat accumulation around sites of lymph leakage from defective lymphatic vessels. Leaky lymphatic vessels are the leadin ...


A study suggest that muscle bears a metabolic memory of obesity, which may help to explain why sustained weight loss can be difficult despite cutting calories. A diverse team of researchers found t ...


Researchers from Duke University Medical Center and Louisiana State University have found that the gene encoding an enzyme that hinders muscle from burning fat manufactures three times more enzyme in ...
