A pharmacist's perspective on health and metabolic disease
I got some amazing news yesterday. A manuscript submitted to the journal “Diabesity” was accepted. You can read it here. Diabesity is a new journal, but it is Open access, so anyone can read the articles in it.
In summary, high insulin levels are not only linked to diabetes and heart disease, but also to cancer, osteoporosis, inflammation and many other conditions. This review may be one of the first journal articles that has tried to pull all of these conditions together. I suspect there are other conditions that are also implicated to hyperinsulinaemia, but I may not have found sufficient evidence to have them in the review.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll try and rewrite some of the processes into less ‘academic’ language. Drop me a line if there any you want prioritised.
A big thanks to Prof Grant Schofield (www.profgrant.com), Dr Caryn Zinn (NZ dietician) and Dr Mark Wheldon who kept me on the straight and narrow with this article. Ultimately, any mistakes are mine.
This online article has not yet been fully proofed. I’ll be doing that this week. In the meantime, if you spot any, please let me know so I can get them fixed.
