High fat Mediterranean diet is not linked to greater weight gain than low fat diet

An unrestricted calorie Mediterranean diet enriched with healthy vegetable fats does not increase weight gain or waist circumference more than a low fat diet, a five year study published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology has suggested, bolstering the argument that total fat content is not a useful measure of harms or benefits of food.1

Type 2 diabetes is a complex systems disease, caused by interactions between lifestyle and genes. It is an illusion to believe that it can be cured by medication. Lifestyle change should always be at the heart of treatment.

Lipogenesis and synthesis of cholesterol is insulin dependent

Here is a simplified pathway of glucose processing on entering the hepatocyte. The synthesis of cholesterol in the liver is insulin dependent. Glycogenesis is also insulin dependent however the interaction has not been drawn on here. The pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome is complex, but appears to be underpinned by insulin resistance within the liver. Metformin and Statins also act directly and indirectly to reduce cholesterol synthesis. Both of which (logically) form a crucial part in the treatment of metabolic syndrome.
