FDA Warns 15 Companies Selling Herbal & Natural Supplements For Diabetes
Fifteen companies, both within the U.S. and abroad, have been issued warnings by the Food and Drug Administration ordering them to stop selling diabetes treatments online and in stores that violate U.S. drug laws.

New Study Results On Type 2 Diabetes & Weight Loss
A study conducted by a head of scientists over at John Hopkins claims that pre-diabetic individuals losing weight of about 10 percent half a year after it has been identified are less prone to acquire type 2 diabetes for the following three years.
The research yielded results that aim to lead patients and doctors on the effect of changes done over a short period of time to that of one’s health in the long run.
Obese Fathers Can Pass Predisposition of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders to their Children
If your father is obese at the time of conception, you might get his blue eyes and blonde hair, but you can get more other characteristics, like a wider than desired waistline and an increased risk of developing metabolic disorders, such as diabetes.

A New Potential Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough
More than 26 million Americans have type 2 diabetes and while there have been many breakthroughs with medical research, these has been no cure found for diabetes. Now, researchers at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) have found a hormone that promises new open pathways for diabetic treatment. Researchers also believe that the hormone can provide a positive treatment for those suffering from type 1 or juvenile diabetes as well.
Can Grapes Protect Against Metabolic Syndrome-Related Organ Damage?
According to research that was presented at the Experimental Biology Conference in Boston, eating grapes may protect against the damage that is created by the progression of metabolic syndrome. It is the natural components called polyphenols that are thought to bring these beneficial effects.
The study, which was led by chief investigator E. Mitchell Syemour, Ph.D of the University of Michigan Health System included the effects of a high fat, American diet. One study was created with the use of grapes and one was implemented without them. The fat tissue, heart, kidneys, and liver was all studied in obesity-prone rats. Grapes were used in different varieties (green/red/black) and consisted of a freeze-dried grape powder. This powder was integrated into the animal’s diet for 90 days.
Recently, Abbott Laboratories issued a recall on all FreeStyle InsuLink Glucose Meters due to the fact they are displaying and storing incorrect test results for extremely high blood sugar levels.
It is very important for glucose meters to read correctly since it can jeopardize a person’s life who has diabetes. When a diabetic checks their blood sugar, they are making sure that it is not too high. If it is high, they need to treat it immediately. The problem with these meters is that they are not logging the right information, which can lead to injury and/or death.
