Adults' exposure to these foods may be associated with increased serum lipids, increased circulating triglycerides, lipid levels, fatty acid production and secretion, changes in the function of the brain, alterations in the nervous system, changes in the brain's response to pain, alterations in the ability of certain proteins to bind to protein receptors, changes in the production of prostaglandins, changes in the way hormones affect and interact with other factors, changes in the body's ability to maintain cells, and changes in the body's ability to maintain normal blood oxygen levels. Inflammation causes changes in the composition of blood vessels and blood-brain interface, changes in the size and composition of central nervous system regions, increases in plasma concentrations of specific proteins as the body adjusts itself to infection, changes in the function of certain key organs, changes in the composition of blood vessels during the course of infection, and changes in levels of certain proteins as the body adjusts itself to infection. Adults' exposure to such foods may also lead to changes in the functions of their body's immune system in ways that may increase the risk of severe infections. For all but one group, which includes 1 in 10 men, the prevalence of diabetes increased steadily and varied considerably with age and gender. Among men who had diabetes, about half of the cases were in their late 20s or early 30s, compared with about half among women (23%). These men reported 1 in 10 cases of diabetes, whereas more men were in their late 30s (27%) than in their early 40s (13%). Men who did not have diabetes may have higher rates of liver failure and other vascular events, especially those associated with diabetes mellitus. A 2007 study, which compared the prevalence of a single cause of dying in hospital with prevalence of 10 percent among diabetes cases, found that, in 2010, the percent of cases of liver failure was three to fifteen times higher among men than among women (16). Although other studies suggest a link between diabetes and heart disease, and diabetes has been associated with greater rates among women and older adults, little is known about the link between diabetes and diabetes-related complications such as vascular calcification, stroke and diabetes.
