FDA warns against aliskiren combos for diabetes and kidney patients
Combining aliskiren with angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers might lead to renal impairment, hypotension and hyperkalemia in patients with diabetes, the FDA said. The agency also advised patients with renal impairment to avoid such a combination.

ARB-treated women have higher risk of new-onset diabetes
Hypertensive women who were prescribed angotensin receptor blockers were 93% more likely to develop new-onset diabetes compared with those who received angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors, a study in the Journal of Clinical Hypertension revealed. More study is needed but the findings may aid in decision-making among clinicians, the lead researcher said.

Study links impaired fasting glucose to severe ED in men
Data on 3,451 men with sexual dysfunction showed those with impaired fasting glucose faced a greater risk of severe erectile dysfunction, reduced penile blood flow and overt hypogonadism than those who had normal blood glucose levels. Men with IFG also had a higher overall cardiovascular risk than their normoglycemic counterparts. The findings appear in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Experts find diabetes benefits in polyphenol-enriched flour
A study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that consumption of polyphenol-enriched, defatted soybean flour helped curb blood glucose levels in mice with diabetes. Researchers said the results "suggest that grape polyphenol-enriched DSF may provide a novel ingredient for the creation of nutritious, low-sugar and high-protein food ingredients useful for the dietary management of diabetes or metabolic syndrome."

Enzyme expression in the liver curbs weight gain in mice
Over-expression of the FBPase enzyme in the liver of mice led to lower food consumption and a 50% reduction in body fat, compared with mice without the extra enzyme, according to a study in Diabetes. The results suggest that the liver may play a role in weight gain and should serve as a target to address obesity.

Parents' dietary knowledge may not help curb obesity
A study of 150 families of preschoolers revealed about 40% of parents in both healthy and overweight groups agreed that buying and preparing unhealthy food is the key driver of early weight gain in children, while only 7% of parents in the healthy-weight group and 8% in the overweight group cited lack of exercise as a top cause. Pediatricians should offer parents specific and tailored guidance to put their knowledge about diet choices into practice, researchers reported in Clinical Pediatrics.
