The satiation hormone and women’s health
Researchers in Sweden have discovered that neurotensin, a satiation hormone produced in the human brain and intestine that circulates in the blood, could raise the risk of heart attack, breast cancer and diabetes in women.
Presented in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the study also found a link between neurotensin and premature death in women, with cardiovascular disease being one of the significant factors.
The study sheds fresh light on risk assessment and preventive treatment research.
