  • Low hormone levels linked to obesity in teens
    Obese teenagers already show signs of hormonal differences from normal-weight peers that may make them prone to weight gain, according to a new study.

  • Exposure to common flame retardant chemicals may increase thyroid problems in women
    Women with elevated levels of common types of flame retardant chemicals in their blood may be at a higher risk for thyroid disease, and the risk may be significantly higher among post-menopausal women.

  • Researchers identify novel treatment for aggressive form of breast cancer

  • Hormone may offer new approach to type 2 diabetes
    Improvements in type 2 diabetes in patients who have had gastric bypass surgery has led researchers to uncover the role of a key hormone in the disease. Development of a drug that promotes the hormone could radically change the way the disease is treated.

  • Melatonin signaling is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes
    A sleeping pancreas releases less insulin, but how much insulin drops each night may differ from person to person, suggests a new study. Up to 30 percent of the population may be predisposed to have a pancreas that's more sensitive to the insulin-inhibiting effects of melatonin. People with this increased sensitivity carry a slightly altered melatonin receptor gene that is a known risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
