Progress, as they say, is slow, an axiom perhaps nowhere truer than in the field of medicine. Achieving major breakthroughs can take decades of research and scientific effort. But when that “Eureka!” moment does come, it should be duly recognized.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients are just as likely to lose weight and control their blood glucose levels with intermittent semifasting for 2 days per week as with an ongoing daily calorie-restricted diet, according to the first long-term clinical trial comparing the different diets in T2DM.
The results suggest that intermittent fasting could be a solution for people with diabetes who find it difficult to stick to a diet 7 days a week.
Long-term statin use may raise the risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) among individuals at high risk for the disease.
Several clinical trials of cardiovascular disease prevention with statins have reported increased risk of T2DM with statin therapy. However, these studies included participants at relatively low risk for diabetes.
Hormone treatment itself isn't without risk: A recent study of more than 55,000 men found a doubling of heart-attack risk among older men who used testosterone. Younger men who had a history of heart disease had a higher incidence of nonfatal heart attacks. In addition, men who are on prolonged high-level testosterone replacement therapy can experience testicular shrinkage.
“In terms of convenience the A1C test may be superior, but unfortunately our results show that it is highly unreliable as a tool for diagnosis. I want to emphasize that physicians can’t necessarily be reassured by an A1C result alone,” she said.
