Even mild bouts of depression may worsen the health complications that often go along with type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in the journal Diabetes Care.
Canadian researchers followed more than 1,000 patients for five years and found that those who experienced multiple episodes of low-level depression were nearly three times more likely than those without depression to have greater disability, such as reduced mobility, poor self care and worse quality of life.
Sodas, other sweet drinks tied to higher risk for endometrial cancer
Older women who drink lots of soda and other sugary beverages may be at higher risk for endometrial cancer, a new study suggests.
Endometrial cancer involves tumors in the lining of the uterus, and typically affects women in their 60s or 70s, according to the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI). They found that those who drank the largest amounts of sugar-sweetened beverages had a 78 percent higher risk for a tumor known as estrogen-dependent type I endometrial cancer.
The more sugar-sweetened beverages a woman drank, the greater her risk, according to the study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
