MONDAY, Dec. 17, 2018 -- A study of more than 74,000 French women has turned up an unexpected finding: Those who suffer from migraines have a significantly lower risk for type 2 diabetes.
The finding is based on surveys sent to thousands of women born between 1925 and 1950. The study found that -- after adjusting for body weight and other health factors -- women who said they had migraines had a 30 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes, the leading form of the blood sugar disease.
SUNDAY, Dec. 2, 2018 -- A marijuana-derived drug that helps control epileptic seizures appears to become less effective over time in some patients, a new Israeli study reports.
Cannabidiol (CBD) liquid has been proven effective against seizures, but about one-third of patients develop tolerance that blunts the drug's effectiveness, according to research presented Sunday at the American Epilepsy Society's annual meeting, in New Orleans.
