A new study published in the Journal of Lipid Research suggests that the equivalent of just two and a half glasses of orange juice a day could reverse obesity and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Results of analysis using only the women's initial (baseline) BMI found that having baseline obesity (a BMI of 30 or more) was associated with a 7-times increased risk of developing diabetes, while overweight women (BMI 25.0 to 29.9) had a 2.3 times increased risk compared with women with normal weight.

In the Journal of Lipid Research, researchers at Pennsylvania State University reported that just a few days of sleep deprivation can make participants feel less full after eating and metabolise the fat in food differently.

Participants made intentional dietary changes resulting from learned integrated concepts about nutrition and behaviour, taught by trained nutritionists during the first year and reinforced quarterly for nearly a decade.

The researchers also wanted to determine the molecular reasons why the adducts weren't being fixed properly by the cells.

The research incorporated 28 patients with type 2 diabetes who were studied over a total period of 12 weeks.

Researchers found a correlation between levels of phthalate exposure and markers of impaired liver function, which are indicators of increased risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

A new study has shown that a recently discovered protein called neuronostatin could give new ways to treat and prevent hypoglycaemia, which is sometimes deadly for people with diabetes.
