  • How low testosterone raises diabetes risk
    Researchers have identified a key hormone-signaling pathway that explains why men with low testosterone are at greater risk for developing Type 2 diabetes, according to a new study.

  • No increased risk of fatal cardiovascular events for breast cancer patients on newer hormone therapy
    The use of aromatase inhibitors, hormone-therapy drugs used to treat patients with breast cancer, was not associated with an increased risk of fatal cardiovascular events, including heart attacks or stroke, compared with tamoxifen, another commonly prescribed anti-cancer drug that works on hormones and which has been associated with a serious risk of stroke, report investigators.

  • Double advantage of potential new diabetes treatment
    Blocking the hormone that raises sugar levels in the blood could increase insulin levels while keeping blood sugar levels down, report investigators. The findings in mice point to a novel way to treat diabetes -- but only in some patients. They also challenge the benefits of the strategy in severely diabetic patients.

  • Pituitary insufficiency is prevalent after blast concussion in military veterans
    A study in military veterans finds that explosive blast-related concussions frequently result in hormone changes leading to problems such as sleep disturbances, fatigue, depression and poor quality of life. The research evaluated hormone levels in 41 male veterans who had been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

  • Common flame retardant chemical disrupts a hormone that is essential to life
    Brominated fire retardants, used in many consumer products and known to cause hormonal irregularities, overstimulates an adrenal gland hormone in a way that may lead to the development of cardiovascular disease, new research in human cells finds.
