An unhealthy diet abundant in fat promotes diabetes mellitus!

An unhealthy diet abundant in fat promotes diabetes mellitus!
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Munich, Germany may have found a new way to treat diabetes mellitus - a group of diseases that result in too much sugar in the blood.

In a new study, they found that a stress protein found in muscle has an effect that promotes the blood sugar disorder. They believe that this finding could pave the way to a completely new treatment approach for diabetes mellitus. Read on for more...

Researchers have long known that the FKBP51 protein is linked to depression and anxiety disorders

The FKBP51 protein is involved in the regulation of the stress regulatory system. For some time, researchers have associated that the protein is associated with mental disorders like depression and anxiety. The relationship makes sense: When the stress system doesn’t function properly, mental problems can develop.
Now, researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry have discovered a new, surprising role for the FKBP51 protein: It acts as a molecular link between the stress system and metabolic processes in the body. Their study is the first of its kind to have discovered this relationship.


Blood sugar worries? 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!
When this research first crossed my desk I couldn’t believe it!
The latest blood sugar science shows that your body’s own safety mechanism is why your current blood sugar solution may be selling you short.
In fact, this research confirms that targeting only your body’s natural insulin and your pancreas to conquer blood sugar is like trying to douse a forest fire with a glass of water.
But this research has also led to some really exciting news for you—a breakthrough in blood sugar science that no one saw coming.
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!


The relationship between the FKBP51 protein and diabetes mellitus – explained

Project leader Mathias Schmidt summarises the link between the FKBP51 protein and diabetes mellitus: “FKBP51 influences a signaling cascade in muscle tissue, which with excessive calorie intake leads to the development of glucose intolerance, for example, the key indicator of type 2 diabetes.”
Your body gets stressed when you eat an unhealthy diet abundant in fat. If your muscles increasingly produce FKBP51, it may lead to reduced absorption of glucose and, as a result, obesity and diabetes mellitus may develop. In contrast, if your muscles block FKBP51, diabetes mellitus won’t develop – even if you consume too many calories or your body is still stressed.
