GSK to apply for FDA approval of diabetes drug albiglutide
Diabetes patients who took GlaxoSmithKline's experimental once-weekly albiglutide attained lower body weight and blood glucose levels than those taking preprandial lispro insulin shots, the company said. GlaxoSmithKline said it has received top-line data from seven of eight Phase III clinical studies and plans to pursue FDA approval for the drug.

Gene variants tied to diabetes don't affect GLP-1 in healthy people
A study in Diabetes found variants in the genes TCF7L2, WFS1 and KCNQ1, which are linked to type 2 diabetes, did not trigger GLP-1-induced insulin secretion in healthy individuals. The presence of the genetic variants also did not appear to impact beta-cell responsiveness to GLP-1 infusion and hyperglycemia, researchers noted.

Docs still wary of informing parents about child's weight
In 2008, 29% of parents of children with a BMI at or above the 85th percentile said doctors told them their child was overweight, up from 19% in 1999, a study in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine revealed. However, only 58% of parents of more-obese children said their doctors informed them about their child's weight.

Report questions common dietary beliefs
Weight management is more complex than just balancing calorie intake and energy expenditure, according to a report and consensus statement from the American Society for Nutrition and the International Life Sciences Institute. The report, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, calls into question common beliefs about weight loss, including the idea that small dietary changes can have a big effect over time.

Calif. poll shows concerns about childhood obesity
A Field Poll of 1,000 likely California voters showed 3 out of 5 would support imposing a special tax on soft drinks to fight childhood obesity and about half said the biggest threats to child health were unhealthy eating habits and a lack of exercise. Most agreed that children and families had a major role in reducing obesity but that health care providers, schools and communities should also be involved.
