Gut microbes influence the body's response to high-fat diet

Gut microbes influence the body's response to high-fat diet By Catharine Paddock PhD Published Thursday 6 July 2017 Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318285.php  - - - - -  The results of a new study provide evidence that it could be possible to tailor diets to individual patients, based on the signature of their gut microbiome. New research explains why the same high-fat diet affects people differently. The team found that they could predict which mice would gain more weight and develop glucose intolerance after switching to a high-fat diet by using gut microbe signatures that were present before the switch. In a paper published in Cell...

Human enzyme may be key to unraveling Alzheimer's disease

Human enzyme may be key to unraveling Alzheimer's disease

Human enzyme may be key to unraveling Alzheimer's disease By Tim Newman Published Wednesday 28 June 2017 Source http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318138.php?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=weekly-us Protein aggregates are the hallmark of a number of neurodegenerative diseases. New research, published in the journal PLOS Biology, examines a human enzyme that unravels these disruptive plaques. Neurodegenerative diseases already affect millions of people in the United States. They tend to strike in middle to later life, and, because the population is starting to live longer, the number of cases is set to rise. By some estimates, in 30 years, there will be 12 million people in the U.S. living with a neurodegenerative condition....

Leisure activities lower blood pressure in Alzheimer's caregivers Published: Monday 26 June 2017 Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/318112.php Going for a walk outside, reading, listening to music -- these and other enjoyable activities can reduce blood pressure for elderly caregivers of spouses with Alzheimer's disease, suggests a study in Psychosomatic Medicine: Journal of Biobehavioral Medicine, the official journal of the American Psychosomatic Society. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer. "Greater engagement in pleasant leisure activities was associated with lowered caregivers' blood pressure over time," according to the report by Brent T. Mausbach, PhD, of University of California San Diego and colleagues. "Participation in pleasant leisure activities may have...

Chronic Pain Linked to Increased Risk of Dementia

Chronic pain linked to increased risk of dementia in study of older adults Published: Wednesday 7 June 2017 Adapted Media Release Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/317805.php Researchers at UC San Francisco have found that older people with persistent pain show quicker declines in memory as they age and are more likely to have dementia years later, an indication that chronic pain could somehow be related to changes in the brain that contribute to dementia. The study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, appears to be the first to make this association. The researchers analyzed data from 10,000 participants aged 60 and up over a 12-year...

SuperAger brains shrink more slowly than peers' brains

alzheimers brain brain health dementia dha nrf2 SuperAger

Cortex of super-aged brain deteriorated much slower than average elderly brain over time. Published: Thursday 6 April 2017 Source: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/316787.php ---  Donald Tenbrunsel is 89 years old, but he is just as likely to talk to you about Chance the Rapper as reminisce about Frank Sinatra. The highly engaged and delightful conversationalist, who reads, volunteers and routinely researches questions on the Internet, is part of a new path-breaking Northwestern Medicine study that shows that SuperAgers' brains shrink much slower than their age-matched peers, resulting in a greater resistance to "typical" memory loss and dementia. Over the course of the 18-month study,...
