Insulin signaling plays a role in regulating synaptic function, glucose homeostasis, and cognition, a new study reports. Impairments in insulin signaling result in metabolic defects, in addition to memory and learning deficits, mirroring the cognitive impairments associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reveals impaired insulin signaling in the brain negatively affects cognition, memory and learning. The findings shed light on why those with type 2 diabetes are at greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
UCSF researchers report the food and beverage industries push sugary products while obfuscating the significant health issues added sugars can cause. The findings shed light on sugars' link to disease and exposes industrial tactics to downplay the public health risks of diets too high in sugar.
Researchers debate the roles of the gut and brain hormones play in regulating appetite and metabolism.
For those who find it difficult to exercise, taking a hot bath can help improve inflammation and glucose levels, a new study reports.
Researchers report high fat diet in female mice can have an epigenetic effect on future generations. The study found high fat diets had lead to an increased risk of obesity, insulin resistance and addictive behaviors over three generations of offspring.
A newly developed experimental drug, that contains similar compounds to those in diabetes medications, slows the progression of Parkinson's in mouse models of the disease, researchers report.
A new study reports high sugar and fat based diets that lead to obesity, coupled with the normal aging process, may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
According to researchers, people with type 2 diabetes have a higher risk of being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease later in life. The study reports the risk may be higher for younger people and those with complications related to diabetes.
According to researchers, people with diabetes may be at increased risk of suffering from depression as a result of biological problems in regulating sugar levels that influence emotional response in the brain. Using EEG, researchers discovered those with higher levels of insulin resistance showed greater response to negative images.
Researchers report keeping levels of KYNA low throughout a worm's life can help prevent the onsite of age-related cognitive decline.
