Diabetes: Tighter Control of Blood Sugar Prevents Nerve Condition, But At What Risk? : 22/06/2012 :

Aggressive control of blood sugar levels in diabetes can help to prevent diabetic neuropathy, according to a new systematic review in The Cochrane Library. However, the review suggests that optimal target levels need to be established to prevent complications.

Up to half of people with diabetes develop diabetic neuropathy, which affects nerves in the feet and legs, making them feel tingly, numb, painful or weak. It is possible to prevent neuropathy by strict control of blood sugar levels through a number of ways including different insulin regimens and diet modification, but evidence for the effects of this approach, known as enhanced glucose control, has not been systematically reviewed until now.

Role of Omega-3 in Preventing Cognitive Decline in Older People Questioned : 20/06/2012 :

Older people who take omega-3 fish oil supplements are probably not reducing their chances of losing cognitive function, according to a new Cochrane systematic review. Based on the available data from studies lasting up to 3.5 years, the researchers concluded that the supplements offered no benefits for cognitive health over placebo capsules or margarines, but that longer term effects are worth investigating.

The three major omega-3 fats are: alpha linolenic acid (ALA) from sources such as nuts and seeds and eicosapentoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from sources including oily fish such as salmon and mackerel.
