Excess fat disrupts heart cell's energy system

2018 09 Jan

A new study published in Circulation Research finds that excess fat in the heart, a common feature in diabetes and obesity, can harm the cells’ ability to produce energy. As a result, people with diabetes may have two- to five-fold increased risk of heart failure, researchers explain. Just like a combustion engine burning fuel to power the pistons,... Read more

Imagine travelling to Portugal or Cuba and that 100% of the population you see has diabetes! This sounds like a nightmare to me, and I would assume the same for you if you know the burden this disease represents for health systems. This science fiction scenario is no longer fiction in Mexico, we are one of the most affected countries in the world due to... Read more

How Diabetes Increases Heart Attack Risk

2017 27 Mar

Researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have identified one of the reasons why diabetics have greater risk of suffering a heart attack: Diabetes is associated with the loss of small blood vessels around the heart. This in turn affects the entire cardiac muscle. Their findings are published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology.... Read more

Heart Risks in Midlife Boost Risk for Later Dementia

2017 28 Feb

New research finds that heart disease risks in middle age – such as diabetes, high blood pressure or smoking – are associated with increased risk for dementia later in life. Keeping the vascular system healthy in midlife is really important to the health of your brain when you are older, according to researchers. The findings were presented at the... Read more
