    The body’s own fat-metabolism protects against the harmful effects of sugar

    Original @ Medical Xpress – latest medical and health news stories For several years, medical researchers, doctors and dieticians have known that a low carbohydrate diet and plentiful fat can prevent a range of lifestyle and age-related diseases and thus promote healthy aging. But researchers from around the world hav… [...]

    Microneedle skin patch that delivers fat-shrinking drug locally could be used to treat obesity and diabetes

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Researchers have devised a medicated skin patch that can turn energy-storing white fat into energy-burning brown fat locally while raising the body’s overall metabolism. The patch could be used to burn off pockets of unwanted fat such as “love handles”… [...]

    Is metabolically healthy obesity a worthwhile initial medical goal?

    Original @ Medical Xpress – latest medical and health news stories Worldwide, nearly one in three individuals is obese. As a consequence, increasing numbers of people suffer from diseases associated with morbid overweight, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack or stroke. Despite the well-known health risks, only some of these individuals attempt to lose weight. Many people are most probably daunted by the prospect of losing the amount of weight required. Researchers of the German Center for Diabetes Research in Tübingen and Potsdam now report in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology that metabolically healthy obesity could be a worthwhile initial goal in the therapy of obesity.

    In mice, calorie restriction reduces fat but increases fur

    Original @ Medical Xpress – latest medical and health news stories Calorie restriction may help mice stay slim and live longer, but it also means less fat to keep their bodies warm. Researchers in Brazil have found that mouse skin responds to caloric restriction by stimulating fur growth, increasing blood flow, and altering cell metabolism to increase energy efficiency. The study, published September 12 in the journal Cell Reports, reveals that animals may use this as an evolutionary adaptation to stay warm—and alive—in limited food conditions. [...]
