Saturated fat in butter reverses pre-diabetes in dolphins

Elevated patient blood glucose and exogenous insulin administration may affect substrate oxidation in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM); however, this has not been demonstrated with conviction. We performed five types of isoglycemic (approximately 11mM) clamps: (a) with insulin; (b) with insulin plus fat/heparin; (c) with insulin plus glycerol; (d) with saline; (e) with saline plus fat/heparin and two types of euglycemic (approximately 5mM) clamps: (a) with insulin; (b) with insulin plus fat/heparin. “Everybody thinks of fat as being bad, but this shows that it depends on what kind of fat,” said Olansky, an endocrinologist at the Cleveland Clinic who was not involved in the new study. So as we get older, this brown fat is gradually lost. Fatty acids and closely related glycerolipid molecules wear multiple biological hats, serving as a major energy reservoir, as constituents of cell membranes and as mediators of intracellular signalling. One proposed mechanism is that as adiposity increases, activated immune cells enter adipose tissue in greater numbers leading to a proinflammatory environment that disrupts insulin signaling in adipocytes.

‘The big topic last week was Christmas and how to stop it turning into a high carb sugar fest and a weight gain disaster. Whilst both forms are essential for the body, having either high levels of LDL or low levels of HDL is associated with higher risks of heart disease. Trained dieticians gave personalised dietary advice to all participants. It shows their insulin response had returned. For example , a 2014 study in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology found that some saturated fats are associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, and others with a decreased resistance. Diet drinks will keep you hooked on that “sweet” taste and will keep you seeking out sweet options so forget these too. But what’s perhaps most surprising is just how little of the localized fat that sufferers need to shed to reverse the condition.

Over six months, signs of metabolic syndrome fell towards normal levels, including ferritin, triglyceride, insulin and glucose levels.
