A new study by ISGlobal found that eating breakfast after 9 a.m. increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 59%. The study also found that a late dinner (after 10 pm) seemed to increase the risk, while eating more frequently (about five times a day) was associated with a lower disease incidence. The researchers suggest that a first meal before 8 am and a last meal before 7 pm may help reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes.
A new method for diagnosing diabetes using high-frequency ultrasound and a convolutional neural network was developed. The method is based on the observation that glucose in red blood cells forms glycated hemoglobin and accumulates on its surface. The results confirmed the efficacy of the CNN-based approach with a classification accuracy of 0.98. This non-invasive diagnostic […]
It is found that the popular mycoprotein-based meat substitute — over just a two-week period, saw a significant 12% drop in ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and a 7% fall in total cholesterol, compared to those who ate similar products made from red and processed meat.
