• Exercise May Improve Kidney Function in Obesity, Reduce Risk of Renal Disease:  Aerobic exercise may reduce the risk of diabetes-related kidney disease in some people, according to a new study. The findings are published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Renal Physiology and was chosen as an APSselect article for December.
  • Curry Spice Boosts Exercise Performance in Mice with Heart Failure:  New research suggests that curcumin, a main ingredient in curry, may improve exercise intolerance related to heart failure. The study is published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
  • Can’t Exercise? A Hot Bath May Help Improve Inflammation, Metabolism, Study Suggests:  Hot water treatment may help improve inflammation and blood sugar (glucose) levels in people who are unable to exercise, according to a new study. The findings are published ahead of print in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
  • Eat Your Vegetables (and Fish): Another Reason Why They May Promote Heart Health:  Elevated levels of trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO)—a compound linked with the consumption of seafood and a primarily vegetarian diet—may reduce hypertension-related heart disease symptoms. New research in rats finds that low-dose treatment with TMAO reduced heart thickening (cardiac fibrosis) and markers of heart failure in an animal model of hypertension. The study is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Heart and Circulatory Physiology and was chosen as an APSselect article for November.
  • Bigger = Better: Big Bees Fly Better in Hotter Temps than Smaller Ones Do:  Arizona State University researchers have found that larger tropical stingless bee species fly better in hot conditions than smaller bees do and that larger size may help certain bee species better tolerate high body temperatures. The findings run contrary to the well-established temperature-size “rule,” which suggests that ectotherms—insects that rely on the external environment to control their temperature—are larger in cold climates and smaller in hot ones. The research will be presented today at the American Physiological Society’s (APS) Comparative Physiology: Complexity and Integration conference in New Orleans.
