Greetings,

Here is a new book for discussion:

Fatty Acid and Lipotoxicity in Obesity and Diabetes
(Novartis Foundation Symposia)

by Novartis Foundation (Hardcover - Jan 28, 2008)

Book Description provided by the Publisher (Wiley):

The potential lipotoxic effect of accumulation of fatty acids in non-adipose tissues is thought to be a major component in the development of insulin resistance. Chronic exposure to high concentrations of free fatty acids in the blood affects pancreatic cell function, insulin secretion and lipid synthesis in the liver, and storage in adipose tissue. Maintaining the normal levels of fatty acids requires coordinated regulation between the liver, adipose tissue and skeletal muscle.

This book deals with the molecular aspects of fatty acid action in obesity and insulin resistance. The topics include lipid metabolism and adipose tissue biology, and cell function and insulin resistance. Chapters deal with the molecular genetics and molecular physiology of energy homeostasis.


From the Back Cover:

Metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension are among the most common chronic illnesses and major causes of morbidity worldwide. These diseases are due to alterations of basic metabolic pathways such as those for glucose and lipids, and they are extremely costly to treat. Because of their increasing prevalence they have attracted tremendous attention from the scientific community in recent years and significant advances have been made in our understanding of their molecular nature.

-- The potential lipotoxic effect of accumulation of fatty acids in non-adipose issue is thought to be a major component in the development of insulin resistance.

-- Chronic exposure to elevated free fatty acids affects pancreatic ß cell function, insulin secretion and lipid synthesis in the liver, and storage in adipose tissue.

-- Maintaining the normal levels of fatty acids requires coordinated regulation between the liver, adipose tissue and skeletal muscle.

This book presents an integrated approach to the problems of obesity and type 2 diabetes and carefully examines the role that fatty acids and lipids play in the development and progression of these diseases and in the transition from one to the other. Topics covered include lipid metabolism, adipose tissue biology, ß cell function and insulin resistance. Specific chapters also deal with the molecular genetics and molecular physiology of energy homeostasis. Fatty Acids and Lipotoxicity in Obesity and Diabetes will be of interest to anyone working on the causes of obesity and diabetes.

Key words:
New books, Fatty Acids, Lipotoxicity, Obesity, Diabetes, Novartis Foundation, insulin resistance, pancreatic cell function, insulin secretion, lipid synthesis, liver, adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, molecular genetics, molecular physiology, energy homeostasis, pancreatic ß cell function, type 2 diabetes, lipid metabolism

For those men who suffer from obesity and have erectile dysfunction problems you better be taking your health more serious as it is not only erectile dysfunction that may be your problem.

The drug war between the anti-impotency medicines such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra is continuously on the rise but instead of preferring the other two erectile dysfunction drugs Cialis and Levitra, impotency afflicted men are opting for viagra only, the Pfizer manufactured drug to treat erectile dysfunction. This is because Viagra if the first erectile dysfunction medication to provide men successful relief from impotency and to known more about tidbits on Viagra, please visit the website http://www.viagraforce.com

The online pharmacy no prescription phrase works on two distinct planes; the internet and non prescription medication. But, we are fusing the phrase so that it means something and we can use the constituent parts of the phrase to create an idea. The concept of “online pharmacy no prescription” is designed for the purpose of providing medication over the internet (online) for all those people all over the world who are in dire need of suitable medication at reasonable prices, which is exactly the reason behind generic meds. Now, this is one of the hardest concepts to explain because it has so many benefits that people cannot believe it is real, albeit millions of people use the internet for their medications needs and their respective refills with substantial savings. Why is it hard to explain though if it has so many benefits? Well, it is because we are speaking of the internet and people a wary about using the internet because some do not understand its principles in relation to ordering through online pharmacy no prescription

Hi,

7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at Disease.com (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

Thank You,

The link between obesity and ED is very strong. Obesity is also related to problems like high blood pressure and high level of cholesterol, which have already been identified as factors contributing to ED.
