Researchers identify mechanism in diabetics that increases stroke risk
Strokes pose a tremendous risk for individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. They are much more likely to experience uncontrolled bleeding in the brain during a stroke, which increases the risk of poor outcomes and death.
Diabetes may worsen breast cancer outcomes
Women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer may be up to 50 percent more likely to die from any cause if they also have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, according to a new investigation from Johns Hopkins University researchers.
New research hopes to find protection against diabetic complications
Kidney disease, vision loss and cardiovascular complications are common among those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. These conditions affect anywhere from 85 to 90 percent of diabetics. But what about the other 10 to 15 percent?
Researchers find the enzyme at the heart of retinopathy caused by type 1 or type 2 diabetes
One of the greatest fears of most of those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes is that they will eventually suffer diabetic retinopathy and lose their vision. However, a team of researchers has found that inhibition or removal of certain enzymes may prevent the process that eventually leads to the loss of sight.
Researchers uncover cellular process that increases amputation risk in diabetics
The smallest units of the human genome may have a major impact on the amputation risk of individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. A team of UK researchers has found that certain types of micro-RNA molecules may cause damage in the vascular system of diabetics, which can lead that leads to amputation.
As diabetes becomes more common, costs continue to rise
The number of individuals receiving care for type 1 and type 2 diabetes more than doubled since the past decade, and the cost of caring for these patients is continuing to spiral out of control, according to a new report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Type 1 diabetes advocates seek name change
Fearing the negative associations that may be attached to type 2 diabetes, some of those with type 1 diabetes are pushing for a change in classification so that their disease can be viewed as distinct and unique.
Mortality rate for type 1 diabetes is declining, but more progress is needed
The mortality rate of individuals with type 1 diabetes has decreased in recent years, but those with the condition still face a much higher risk of death than those in the general population, according to a new study from University of Pittsburgh researchers.
Anemic diabetics may have higher risk of heart complications
Individuals with untreated type 1 or type 2 diabetes may be at an increased risk of becoming anemic. Now, a new study has found that diabetics who do not respond well to anemia medications may be at a higher risk for developing heart disease.
Type 1 diabetics worry about stigma associated with the disease
Despite the many differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes, the two conditions are often lumped together. While this may be a handy way to classify the diseases, some individuals who suffer from them now find the shared nomenclature to be irksome.
Groups applaud Congress for extending diabetes programs
Diabetes advocacy groups are praising the efforts of Congress following their renewal of funding for several diabetes initiatives.
Computer model may help speed the pace of type 1 diabetes research
The pace of type 1 diabetes research is often agonizingly slow, while the cost of studies remains high. This may prevent further breakthroughs in treating the disease. In an effort to remove these stumbling blocks, a team of computer scientists recently developed a virtual model that will enable researchers to test their hypotheses online rather than in clinics.
Researchers develop vaccine against future loss of insulin-producing cells
A team of doctors may have developed a vaccine that could enable individuals with type 1 diabetes retain more insulin production following diagnosis than previously thought possible.
Hormone may lead to improved diabetes treatments
A team of researchers from UT Southwestern Medical Center has discovered a type of hormone that may prevent the death of insulin-producing beta cells. They believe the findings could lead to improved treatments for type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Stem cell therapy may help diabetics avoid loss of feet due to complications
One of the greatest fears of many individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes is the potential loss of feet or legs due to complications from the disease. However, a new study has shown that stem cell therapy may be able to prevent the need for diabetes-related amputations.
