Psychotic Stress is Associated with Imbalanced Fat Cells

Fat is now recognized as a metabolic organ. Leptin is the primary hormone secreted by fat cells, as fully explained in The Leptin Diet. A companion hormone that is also secreted by fat cells is called adiponectin. Adiponectin maintains insulin sensitivity, especially in the liver. When leptin resistance sets in and an individual gains weight, adiponectin levels drop. As they drop a person becomes insulin resistant, thus setting the stage for eventual diabetes. A new study shows that adiponectin levels and mood are directly linked.

New Obesity Link to Breast and Prostate Cancer

New information helps to explain how breast and prostate cancer are linked to obesity. Two hormones that come from fat, leptin and adiponectin, are involved in the problem.

Obesity Increases Risk for Aggressive Breast Cancer

A wake up call has been issued to women. If you are overweight and you get breast cancer it is more likely to be life threatening, and you have significantly poorer odds of being alive 5 or 10 years following treatment if weight issues are not corrected.

Leptin, Adiponectin, and Kidney Disease

New research now shows that the drop in a fat hormone called adiponectin is associated with an inflammatory-driven decline in kidney function. By fixing leptin problems adiponectin can be elevated to natural levels and the risk for kidney disease can be lowered.

Colon Cancer, Obesity, and Inflammation

Several new studies into colon cancer have identified early changes that turn on wrong gene switches that in turn cause colon cancer. One study links obesity to colon cancer, the other study links digestive inflammation to colon cancer. The good news is that by taking proactive steps these adverse changes can be easily stopped.

Magnesium Needed for Healthy Adiponectin Levels

A detailed study comparing the metabolism of twins, which analyzed their basic dietary nutrients, found that magnesium intake was the most important dietary variable that determined adiponectin levels.

Low Adiponectin Starts Cardiovascular Disease in Motion

Adiponectin and leptin are the two primary hormones secreted from your stored fat. In health, they are released in balance. As body weight rises, then leptin increases and adiponectin decreases. It has been known for some time that the lowering of adiponectin is the primary cause of insulin resistance in your liver. This new study shows that low adiponectin is associated with adverse changes in your circulatory system that lead to plaque accumulation and hardening of your arteries.

The Blood Sugar Hormone Adiponectin is Linked to Your Circadian Clock

A detailed analysis of biological clocking genes has shown that adiponectin function is in sync with 24-hour patterns. The data also showed that fasting causes the adiponectin-relating timing to fast forward, whereas a high fat diet causes adiponectin-related timing to enter jet lag.

Size of Abdominal Fat Cells Predicts Future Type II Diabetes

New research spanning 35 years shows that women who had the largest size in their abdominal fat cells were twice as likely to develop Type II Diabetes later in life. The women were taking part in a Swedish study that included taking fat biopsies back in 1974-1975.

Adiponectin Stops Sepsis – Relevance to H1N1 Swine Flu

A new animal study shows that low levels of adiponectin are associated with higher toxicity of sepsis whereas adequate adiponectin prevents sepsis. Adiponectin levels are low in overweight people and being overweight is a risk factor for getting severe H1N1 swine flu. Those with severe H1N1 swine flu have sepsis-like symptoms due to the toxicity and low oxygen condition produced by the infection.
