Communication Is Key to Medication Adherence

Posted by dlife on Mon, Jan 21, 13, 04:20 PM 0 Comment

January 2, 2012 (Newswise) — Even the best medicines in the world can be rendered ineffective if they are not taken as prescribed. The problem known as medication "non-adherence" is a major health issue in the United States, contributing to worse outcomes for people who have diabetes and other chronic diseases.

Now a study led by researchers at the University of Califo

Researchers Link 11 Genetic Variations to Type 2 Diabetes

Posted by dlife on Wed, Feb 01, 12, 07:01 AM 0 Comment

October 2, 2009 (Newswise) - Mathematicians at Michigan Technological University have developed powerful new tools for winnowing out the genes behind some of humanitys most intractable diseases.With one, they can cast back through generations to pinpoint the genes behind inherited illness. With another, they have isolated 11 variations within genescalled single nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs or "snips"associated with type 2 diabetes."With chronic, complex diseases like Parkinson's, diabetes and ALS [Lou Gehrig'

October 2, 2009 (Newswise) - Few people talk openly about having diabetes, so most of us have little understanding of what it feels like to live with diabetes every single day and how it can impact ones every waking moment. Thats about to change. In recognition of World Diabetes Day on November 14th, the Making Sense of Diabetes video contest is challenging people living with diabetes to visually reveal its impact on their lives through one of the five senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch or smell. The contest

Plants On Steroids: Key Missing Link Discovered Could Improve Understanding of Major Human Diseases

Posted by dlife on Wed, Feb 01, 12, 07:01 AM 0 Comment

September 9, 2009 (EurekAlert) - Researchers at the Carnegie Institution's Department of Plant Biology have discovered a key missing link in the so-called signaling pathway for plant steroid hormones (brassinosteroids). Many important signaling pathways are relays of molecules that start at the cell surface and cascade to the nucleus to regulate genes. This discovery marks the first such pathway in plants for which all the steps of the relay have been identified.Since this pathway shares many similarit

Link Between Depression, Early Stages of Chronic Kidney Disease Found By Researchers

Posted by dlife on Wed, Feb 01, 12, 07:01 AM 0 Comment

September 8, 2009 (UT Southwestern) - One in five patients with chronic kidney disease is depressed, even before beginning long-term dialysis therapy or developing end-stage renal disease, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have found. The study, based on a pool of 272 participants, is the first to examine the rate of depression among these patients using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition (DSM IV), which is considered the gold-standard in evaluating dep
