DRINKING just two cans of fizzy pop a week can increase the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, scientists warned today.

Fizzy drinks

 

Researchers uncovered evidence to prove a positive association between sugary drinks and weight gain, plus the eventual risk of developing metabolic syndrome – a cluster of risk factors that raise the chances of developing heart problems and diabetes.

The study suggests drinking two sugar-sweetened drinks a week increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

One is enough to raise blood pressure.

The risks from consuming such drinks also included fat stomachs, high levels of fats in the blood, raised blood pressure and reduced “good” cholesterol levels.

Poor dental health may be linked with increased risk for diabetes, a new study suggests. The results will be presented in a poster Monday, March 19, at ENDO 2018, the 100th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in Chicago, Ill.

"The health of your teeth maybe a sign of your risk for diabetes," said lead author Raynald Samoa, M.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism at City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, Calif.

"Our findings suggest that dental exams may provide a way to identify someone at risk for developing diabetes. We found a progressive positive relationship between worsening glucose tolerance and the number of missing teeth. Although a causal relationship cannot be inferred from this cross-sectional study, it demonstrates that poor dental outcome can be observed before the onset of overt diabetes," he said.

Prions are insidious proteins that spread like infectious agents and trigger fatal conditions such as mad cow disease. A protein implicated in diabetes, a new study suggests, shares some similarities with these villains. Researchers transmitted diabetes from one mouse to another just by injecting the animals with this protein. The results don’t indicate that diabetes is contagious like a cold, but blood transfusions, or even food, may spread the disease.

 

The work is “very exciting” and “well-documented” for showing that the protein has some prionlike behavior, says prion biologist Witold Surewicz of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, who wasn’t connected to the research. However, he cautions against jumping to the conclusion that diabetes spreads from person to person. The study raises that possibility, he says, but “it remains to be determined.”

A new study found more health benefits with moderate drinking … but it does matter what you drink and whether you're male or female.

Drink two glasses of wine and don’t call me in the morning.

It’s the advice you wish you’d get from your doctor. Well, now that may be a possibility — at least when it comes to diabetes.

People who drink moderately may have a lower risk of developing diabetes than those who abstain, according to a new study published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.

“The study by Holst and colleagues took data from a health survey for over 70,000 Danish adults and observed fewer new cases of diabetes with moderate alcohol intake than with abstinence over the course of five years,” said Dr. Ronald Tamler, medical director of the Mount Sinai Clinical Diabetes Institute, who was not involved in the study.

The lowest risk of developing diabetes was seen in people consuming moderate amounts of alcohol — 14 drinks per week for men (43 percent lower risk), and nine drinks per week for women (58 percent lower risk).
