The relationship between 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease does not appear to be causal, challenging prior observational evidence that increasing the vitamin could reduce disease risk, according to new research published in the Journal of Hepatology. The UF study also measured the potential causal relationships between vitamin D and type 2 diabetes, and found similar outcomes.
A fatty liver is now the most common chronic liver condition in adult Americans and will soon be the leading cause of end-stage liver disease in patients that are obese or have type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Researchers at the University of Florida want to determine whether African-Americans accumulate fat in their livers in a similar way to Caucasians and Hispanics in order to develop novel insight for early diagnosis and treatment techniques for the condition.
In a new five-year study funded by the National Institutes of Health, University of Florida researchers will study the effects of bariatric weight-loss surgery on brain function, thinking, and memory. The cutting-edge research is the latest in a growing movement to explore the potential relationships between type 2 diabetes mellitus and Alzheimer's disease.
UF and UF Health faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students submitted a record number of original research presentations for the American Diabetes Association’s 74th Scientific Sessions held June 13-17, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. This year's submissions represent one of the largest showcases of research emanating from UF.
A recent literature search reveals the need for more engagement to help diabetes patients navigate their way from a pediatric to adult healthcare setting, according to UF Health researchers.
Kenneth Cusi, M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.E, chief of the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism in UF's College of Medicine, was recently featured in 'Endocrine Today' magazine to talk about the relationship between diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); his area of research expertise.
