High fibre diet could prevent type 1 diabetes

"What we currently know is that type 1 diabetes is not linked to diet or lifestyle and it can't be prevented. Acetate appeared to lower the number of immune cells primed to attack the pancreatic cells, while butyrate boosted other cells that dampen the immune reaction. "The idea that a special medicinal diet could help to regulate the immune system and prevent type 1 diabetes from developing is interesting, but this research is at a very early stage. Diabetes UK is funding a great deal of research to find ways to stop the immune attack against the pancreas, in order to prevent type 1 diabetes in the future." Emily Burns at Diabetes UK said: "We know that our immune system and gut work closely together.

Reducing salt in the diet to reduce frequent urination at night

Dr Matsuo Tomohiro said: "This is the first study to measure how salt intake affects the frequency of going to the bathroom. According to researchers at a Japanese University, cutting down salt intake reduced number of trips to the loo at night. More than two trips to the toilet a night can badly disrupt a person's sleep pattern, leading to stress and irritability. Other volunteers who were told to eat extra salt found they went to the toilet more often. Researchers at Nagasaki University, Japan, told 300 sufferers to cut back on their salt intake and within three months their trips to the loo fell from more than twice a night to just once.

Night-time loo trips linked to salt intake

High salt content is more than 1.5g salt (0.6g sodium) per 100g. They followed patients who had a high salt intake and sleeping problems for three months, after giving them advice to cut back on salt in their diet. In a study of more than 300 volunteers, researchers found that reduced salt intake led people to urinate less. Feeling the urgeConversely, 98 people in the study ended up eating more salt than normal and found they went to the loo more often at night-time.

Motor racing-Heavy car means crash diet for Force India's Perez

"Obviously I increased my weight from last year purely by training harder, putting on muscle, but I was on an extreme diet all last week and still now...I am all the time very hungry."
