And Now for some news ….
Eating Fruit Protects against Diabetes
A recent study published in the journal PLOS Medicine, looked at the relationship of eating Fruit and how it Protects Against Diabetes.
Eating fresh fruit every day was linked with a lower risk for diabetes and diabetes-related vascular complications in a Chinese epidemiological study that included half a million people.
Among individuals without diabetes at baseline, daily fruit consumption was associated with a 12% lower risk for getting diabetes compared to never or rarely eating fresh fruit.
As for the possible mechanisms underlying the study’s findings, the natural sugars in fruit may not be metabolized in the same way as refined sugars, according to investigators.
In addition, fruit is a good source of dietary fiber, minerals, and antioxidants, “which may work synergistically to confer several benefits on metabolism and modulation of the composition and metabolic activity of gut microbiota, which could reduce the risk of diabetes as well as of vascular complications among those who have already developed diabetes.”
Limitations of the study included that its dietary questionnaire was not validated against another reference method, and that it did not distinguish among different types of fruit the participants consumed.
The study provides “strong evidence in support of current dietary guidelines that fresh fruit consumption should be recommended for all, including those with diabetes,” the investigators concluded.
As always, discuss all Nutritional Recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.

Gluteal tendinopathy (GT) is a source of lateral hip pain, yet common clinical diagnostic tests have limited validity.
Patients with Gluteal tendinopathy are often misdiagnosed, resulting in inappropriate management, including surgery.
A recent study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, determined the diagnostic utility of clinical tests for Gluteal tendinopathy, using MRI as the reference standard.
65 participants with lateral hip pain were examined to evaluate the ability of clinical tests to detect MRI-determined Gluteal tendinopathy (an increase in intratendinous signal intensity on T2-weighted images).
Palpation of the greater trochanter and several clinical pain provocation tests applying compressive and tensile loads on the gluteal tendons were investigated.
MRI <findings> of the painful hip, was examined by a radiologist, blind to clinical findings.
The study concluded that keeping in mind that the sample size was small (i.e., possibly underpowered for indices of diagnostic utility with low precision), the results of this study indicate that a patient who reports lateral hip pain within 30 s of single-leg-standing is very likely to have Gluteal tendinopathy.
Patients with lateral hip pain who are not palpably tender over the greater trochanter are unlikely to have MRI-detected Gluteal tendinopathy.
