The Dukan Diet explored on the 'Dr. Oz' TV Show

The Dukan Diet Book

(Best Syndication News) - On the 'Dr. Oz' TV show today, Dr. Oz explained The Dukan Diet and had a panel of experts to critique the weight loss plan. France has had a popular diet called The Dukan Diet for quite sometime. Now it has reached the Americas with the release of Dr. Pierre Dukan's book “The Dukan Diet: 2 Steps to Lose the Weight, 2 Steps to Keep It Off Forever.”

Dr. Pierre Dukan has sold over 5 million copies of his book worldwide. Kate Middleton was rumored to have turned to The Dukan Diet to lose weight before her wedding to Prince William. The diet is different from the Atkins low carbohydrate diet because he limits the amount of dietary fat and the kinds of meat you can eat.

The diet is based on the low carbohydrate idea in the first two phases, but changes over to a more regular diet in the last two phases. On the Atkins diet you would have to remove or keep the carbs reduced from the diet to keep off the weight. Dr. Dukan's diet includes fat that comes from fat in fish and eggs in the initial phase and limits the fat intake and allows for non-fat dairy products. The Dukan Diet plan in the last phase will let you eat six days of anything you want, but you have to follow the first phase of the diet once a week in order to maintain the weight loss.

Type 2 Diabetes – Tradjenta (linagliptin) gets FDA approval

prescription medication

Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) - A new prescription medication Tradjenta (linagliptin) has gained the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) approval for the treatment of adult Type 2 diabetes. Tradjenta can be used alone or with other treatments to help lower blood glucose levels. Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc. are the marketers of Tradjenta.

The way Tradjenta helps to improve blood glucose levels is by blocking the enzyme dipeptidyl peptidase-4 or DPP-4. This allows hormones levels that stimulate the release of insulin to increase after a meal and thereby reducing blood glucose levels.

There were eight double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies conducted that involved around 3,800 Type 2 diabetes patients. The results showed better blood glucose control compared to those taking a placebo.

(Best Syndication News) - Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is back in the US again, this time he is in Los Angeles on his reality documentary TV show called “Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.” This is the second season of the TV show where Jamie Oliver teaches people to eat healthier. The show premieres on ABC at 8 p.m. Pacific Time.

Jamie Oliver tries to work with the Los Angeles United School District's (LAUSD) lunch program to overhaul it, but he doesn't get cooperation from the officials. The first episode is called “Maybe L.A. Was a Big Mistake.” But with all the opposition that Jamie Oliver faces, he manages to reach out the residents in Los Angeles. He has families from Los Angeles bring their child's school lunches, and gets them to help make a stand for better school lunches at the LAUSD. The show leaves it at a cliffhanger to see if there is any chance that Jamie Oliver will be allowed to revamp the schools lunch menu like he did in the first season.

(Best Syndication News) - Tangerines have a flavonoid called Nobiletin that could prevent obesity and also protect a person from developing type 2 diabetes said a recent study published in the journal Diabetes. Researchers at the University of Western Ontario investigated mice who were given the Nobiletin and saw several benefits that could prompt future studies with people. The research was conducted by Murray Huff, a vascular biology scientist at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, and Erin Mulvihill, a PhD student.

There were two groups of mice. Both mice were fed the “western” high fat diet with simple sugars which would give them indicators associated with metabolic syndrome. Then one group was given the Nobiletin in addition to their "western" diet while the other did not get the supplement.
