Diabetes raises Parkinson's disease risk, study says
People with diabetes were more likely than their healthier counterparts to develop Parkinson's disease, a Taiwanese study in Diabetes Care revealed. Researchers examined more than one million individuals and found the incidence of Parkinson's in diabetes patients was 3.59 per 10,000 person-years, compared with only 2.15 per 10,000 person-years in the control group.

BMI falls short on actual obesity rates for women
Data on more than 1,300 participants who underwent dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scans showed 48% of women previously unclassified as obese using BMI alone were classified as obese by the percent of body fat on DEXA, suggesting BMI measurement underestimates actual obesity rates in women. The findings appear in PLoS ONE.

High amino acid levels in baby formula may prevent overfeeding
Babies who were given cow's-milk formula with added amino acid glutamate or hydrolyzed formula consumed less of it than did those who drank regular cow's-milk formula, according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers said glutamate may trigger a body response that tells babies they have consumed enough.

E-prescribing bolsters patient safety
The Southeast Michigan ePrescribing Initiative, which was introduced to evaluate the effect of e-prescribing on patient care, boost safety and limit drug costs, has increased enrollment by 33% since 2011.

Physician: Genetic sequencing is a "game-changer" for medicine
In the next decade, discussions between physicians and patients could include whole-genome sequencing that would generate information on undiagnosed symptoms and an individual's risk of disease, says geneticist Dr. Robert Marion. While there are ethical, privacy and discrimination issues to be resolved, Marion says health care will evolve from being reactive to becoming preventive, which is "really a game-changer in medicine."
