[Best Syndication News] Eating foods that are high-fat and high-carb along with orange juice may curb the amount of oxidative stress that typically would occur said a recent study from endocrinologist researchers at the University at Buffalo. Their study was funded by the Florida Department of Citrus, the National Institutes of Health and the American Diabetes Association. The study first appeared online at the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and also will be in the March print edition as well.

The free radicals are understood to cause inflammation in blood vessel linings which can increase the chances of having a stroke or a heart attack. The researchers of this study believe that the reason orange juice had protective effects on these free radicals was the flavoniods naringenin and hesperidin. These flavonoids are major antioxidants says the studies authors.

[Best Syndication News] Researchers are investigating how leptin could possibly be used instead of or in conjunction with insulin in mouse studies at the UT Southwestern Medical Center. They have found that leptin was better at managing blood-sugar variability and lipogensis when comparing it to the standard insulin therapy. The study is available online and will appear in an upcoming issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Insulin therapy has been the gold standard for treating type 1 diabetes since 1922. It was discovered that Insulin suppressed glucagon which is a hormone that would raise blood sugar levels in healthy individuals. In Type 1 diabetes insulin producing cells are destroyed and that is why injected insulin is used to address the glucagon cells and deliver energy to the tissue.
