RACE TO TH E STONES FOR CHARITY

IT TAKES SOME GUTS... THE ROYAL

COLLEGE OF

GPS & T2D

The Royal College of General

Practitioners (RCGP) has released an

online course exploring low glycaemicindex (GI) diets in type 2 diabetes. The

30-minute e-learning module, Type 2

Diabetes - a Low GI Approach is for

healthcare professionals and has been

written by Southport-based GP Dr

David Unwin (known as the low-carb

GP) in collaboration with diabetes.co.uk

Gut bacteria may to blame for anxiety,

depression or obesity according to

new research. Obesity brought on by a

high-fat diet might be accompanied by

changes in gut bacteria that alter brain

chemistry in such a way as to promote

anxiety and depression, says a report

in MedicalNewsToday. This was the

conclusion that researchers from the

Joslin Diabetes Centre of Harvard Medical

School in Boston, MA, and colleagues

came to after studying the link between gut

microbes and brain function in mice with

diet-induced obesity. They reported their

findings in a paper that is now published

In early July, Ascensia Diabetes Care UK

employees participated in the Dixons

Carphone 'Race to the Stones', to raise

money for Diabetes UK. The 'Race to

the Stones' is a 100km race across the

ancient Ridgeway path, which starts in

Watlington, Oxfordshire, passes through

the Chilterns and North Wessex Downs

in Oxfordshire and Berkshire, before

finishing at the 5,000-year-old stone

circle in Avebury, Wiltshire. The team's

fundraising target is £5,000 and Ascensia

will be matching all donations with their

own additional corporate contribution.

The money raised will help Diabetes UK

in its mission to support the millions of

people living with diabetes across the UK.

Ros Barker, Country Head UK and

Ireland for Ascensia Diabetes Care,

said, "As a company that is dedicated

only to diabetes care, we are passionate

about making a difference for people

with diabetes. That is why we chose to

fundraise for Diabetes UK because we

want the money to directly help people

living with diabetes in the UK. We also

wanted to push ourselves in the challenge

we took on."

in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.

In the paper, they note how giving the

animals antibiotics - which changed

the composition of their gut bacteria -

reduced inflammation, improved 'insulin

signaling in the brain,' and reduced 'signs

of anxiety and depression.'

"What this study says," says senior

study author C. Ronald Kahn, who works

with Harvard University and the Joslin

Diabetes Centre, "Is that many things in

your diet might affect the way your brain

functions, but one of those things is the

way diet changes the gut bacteria or

microbes." medicalnewstoday.com
