Georgetown Study Find Pre-Diabetes High in Alzheimer’s Cases

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Aug 23, 2013

Researchers at Georgetown University conducted a study that suggests that undiagnosed pre-diabetes occurs at higher rate than was previously thought in people with Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. R. Scott Turner, director of the Georgetown University Medical Center’s Memory Disorders Program, brought people into the study who had mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease so that he could investigate resveratrol, a compound found in red grapes and red wine. Resveratrol is thought to mimic the effects of a low calorie diet. When the study began, Dr. Turner said he was shocked by how many of the study’s participants had pre-diabetes.

Georgetown Study: Probiotics May Protect Premature Babies

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Aug 20, 2013

A Georgetown University study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics says that there is a great deal of evidence that suggests that probiotics should be used to protect prematurely born infants from a dangerous and often deadly disease. Dr. Dan Merenstein of Georgetown University was the study’s senior author. The nearly half-million babies born prematurely every year in the U.S. are at risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), which affects the gastrointestinal tract by infecting it and destroying the bowel. According to the Georgetown website, the Georgetown University researchers believe that probiotics, a useful bacteria type, can help protect the intestinal tract and should be used with all premature babies with NEC.
