Higher risk of depression seen with poor glucose control
Poor glucose control elevates the risk of depression, anxiety and anger in diabetes patients, according to a study in Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics. A better understanding of the link between glucose control and psychological disorders may aid in developing a more effective approach to diabetes management, the journal's editor said.

Excessive fructose intake raises liver disease risk in diabetes
High fructose consumption in obese people and those with diabetes leads to decreased levels of ATP molecules, which provide energy to liver cells, and can increase the risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, with inflammation and scarring in the liver. The results appear online in Hepatology.

Report: Treatment in pediatric obesity centers improves health
Children ages 5 to 18 who were treated at a multidisciplinary pediatric obesity clinic attained significant improvements in body weight, blood glucose levels and diastolic blood pressure, researchers reported at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies. However, researchers said long-term data on the efficacy of the multidisciplinary programs is unavailable and more studies are needed.

Study explains mechanism behind overeating despite satiety
Participants reported hedonic hunger -- an urge to consume more food despite being full -- when they were presented with their favorite food after having breakfast, a small study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found. Blood tests also showed the participants' ghrelin levels rose and remained elevated for up to two hours when the participants had their favorite foods. The results suggest the body may be programmed to chemically reward itself when exposed to sumptuous meals, researchers said.

Neuropeptides trigger extra weight gain in underweight babies
A study in the Journal of Neuroscience Research showed rodent models that were born small and underweight had higher levels of appetite-stimulating neuropeptides in the hypothalamus. "What we found is that appetite-producing genes in the hypothalamus are completely programmed toward eating more to make up for the relative decrease in nutrition while in the womb. So the natural tendency for a child born with low birth weight is to eat more and try to catch up in growth. But if this is not curbed, it can result in childhood obesity," lead author Dr. Sherin Devaskar said.

Study finds health care spending is highest in U.S.
The U.S. leads 12 other developed countries in terms of health care spending, driven in part by greater use of technology and higher costs, a Commonwealth Fund study found. Even so, the U.S. does not deliver "notably superior" care, reporting among the highest rates of diabetes amputations, the study noted.
