Past research has indicated that metabolic function is critical for women to prevent cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes after they reach menopause. Now, according to new research from the University of Missouri, minimal exercise may be all it takes for postmenopausal women to better regulate insulin, maintain metabolic function and help prevent significant weight gain. These findings suggest that women can take a proactive approach and may not need to increase their physical activity dramatically to see significant benefits from exercise.
A brain signature that identifies fibromyalgia sufferers with 93 percent accuracy has been discovered by researchers, a potential breakthrough for future clinical diagnosis and treatment of the highly prevalent condition.
Fluge and Mella are best known for their Rituximab work, but just last week Mella reported that they’d found a hypometabolic state in ME/CFS as well. Check out that with along with what’s going on with Rituximab, and another chemotherapy/autoimmune drug that may help some patients ...
This study examined whether FM patients carry gene variants which make it easier for glial cell activation occur to occur via the TSPO receptor, or which lower the amount of serotonin present. A positive result would suggest that the brains of people with fibromyalgia are genetically susceptible to producing neuroinflammation and/or reducing GABA levels.
