Coffee, Green Tea, and Type 2 Diabetes Mortality Rates

Previous studies in the general population suggest that both green tea and coffee can contribute to health benefits, preventing chronic diseases, and even reducing mortality risks. However, limited evidence is currently available regarding the consumption of these beverages on patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. There is significant potential for reduced all-cause mortality associated with […]

The Impact of Major Depressive Disorder on Cardiometabolic Disease Risk

Driven by a widespread change in lifestyle factors, such as dietary patterns and physical activity levels, as well as heightened stress levels, the global prevalence of cardiometabolic disease continues to rise.

The Influence of Gut Bacteria on Diabetes Drugs

Newly emerging research seeks to investigate the effect of gut microbiota on the efficacy of type 2 diabetes drugs, suggesting that the composition of gut bacteria may illuminate why certain diabetes medications work for some people—and not others. Estimates indicate that over 415 million people across the globe have type 2 diabetes, a statistic leading […]

Why Stress May Raise Type 2 Diabetes Risk in Women

Traditional risk factors like obesity, high blood pressure, and a sedentary & nonactive lifestyle may not be the sole risk factors that can predict type 2 diabetes, as newly emerging research highlights the critical role that stress may play in the development of the condition: specifically in women. The study, which will be presented on […]

SGLT-2 inhibitors Associated with Decreased HF Hospitalizations in Type 2 Diabetes

The management of patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and heart failure (HF) is challenging, and the optimal care for these patients is not very well defined. The coexistence of these two conditions increases morbidity and mortality. Patients with HF and T2D are at an increased risk for cardiovascular-related mortality and have higher rates of […]

Obesity Yields Spike in Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
