Another mouse study that requires further investigation, but at least they're looking beyond the efficacy of a CRAB after ten years on patients that would be at the same point regardless.

Numerous supplements

Although the following info came in a commercial publication selling supplements, it may have real substance to it (tho I have not checked the references). The supplements mentioned have been addressed on this site before. And tho the article concerns "diabesity" (and therefore, insulin), this forum seems the most appropriate.
