As I mentioned in my last blog post, people with diabetes are more likely to become depressed.

As I have reported several times (see here, here and here), the medical establishment’s love affair with cholesterol-lowering statins shows little sign of ending, despite public disquiet about the side effects of these drugs and mounting evidence that they actually do little to prevent people dying from heart disease. It is well known that taking […]

Gluten-free diets have become very popular and, as I explained in an earlier post here, there are good reasons why avoiding wheat and other gluten grains could be beneficial for blood sugar control.

In my last blog post, I reported on research linking body levels of fat-like substances called ceramides with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
