If you read my articles about diabetes here regularly, you might have noticed that I rarely cover four topics in the news: 1. Knowing the causes of diabetes. This doesn't help us control it. 2.

We had always assumed that drinking too much alcohol was the cause -- but she never drank any. Since then I've learned a lot about the dangers and other causes of fatty liver disease. Just recently, in fact, Swedish researchers reported that people with nonalcoholic fatty liver...
