http://www.cfnews13.com

Hundreds of people turned out on the first day of spring with a little spring in their step to help fight diabetes. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk marked its second year in Volusia County Saturday, and it has grown both in participants and the amount of money raised. Renee Bergin, who began the Daytona Beach walk, said she saw a need for it locally after her own daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. “All for those kids, we have to do it for them, because they can’t do it, themselves,” Bergin said. “Everybody wants to help. They can help not only by donating, but by volunteering as well.” Bright House Networks, the parent company of News 13, was a proud sponsor of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk. The goal for this year’s walk is $60,000, all of which will go toward research and education surrounding Type 1 diabetes.

‘Moderate alcohol intake prevents weight gains’

http://beta.thehindu.com

Women are often advised to stop drinking to avoid extra calories but a new research suggests that women who regularly consume moderate amounts of alcohol are 30 per cent less likely to gain weight than those who do not drink. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s hospital in Boston said the women who consumed two to three servings of beer or wine each day were less likely to gain extra pounds as they get older. The 13-year research found that women who did not drink at all gained the most weight. The findings, reported this week in the Archives of Internal Medicine, are based on a study of 19,220 U.S. women aged 39 and over who had normal body weight at the start of the study. Researchers tracked the women’s drinking habits over 13 years. About 60 per cent of the women were light or regular drinkers, while about 40 per cent reported drinking no alcohol. Over the course of the study, 41 per cent of the women became overweight or obese. The risk of becoming overweight was almost 30 per cent lower for women who consumed one or two alcohol beverages a day, compared to others who did not drink at all.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

A study recently released by the Archives of Internal Medicine shows that initially normal-weight women who consumed a light to moderate amount of alcohol gained less weight than their abstaining counterparts. Researchers charted the drinking habits of 19,220 American women "aged 38.9 years or older who were free of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes mellitus and had a baseline body mass index within the normal range of 18.5 to less than 25" over the course of 13 years. Approximately 60 percent of the women reported drinking lightly or moderately and the remaining 40 didn't drink at all. The results showed that 41.3% of the women became overweight over the 13 years and 3.8% became obese. The non-drinkers gained an average of 9 pounds each, while the regular drinkers only gained 3 pounds.

Diabetes decision fuels option action

http://www.optionmonster.com

It's likely to be another active day in the options of Amylin Pharmaceuticals and Alkermes as traders prepare for a big decision from the Food and Drug Administration tomorrow. Volumes have been surging in both companies, which stand to benefit from the approval of a long-acting diabetes treatment that needs to be taken only once a week, versus twice a day. Some 65,320 contracts traded in AMLN yesterday, more than triple the average level, while activity was twice normal in ALKS. The stocks have been rallying into the news and have recently hit new 52-week highs. That's pushed up the cost of options in both names as shareholders look to protect their positions from a potentially negative decision from the FDA. Implied volatility in AMLN is now quoted at 117 percent, more than twice the 49 percent historical volatility over the previous 30 sessions. In ALKS the premium is even richer, with implied volatility at 94 percent versus the 36 percent historical reading.
