Researchers to investigate female hormone's role in metabolic processes
Estradiol, a hormone similar to estrogen that is commonly associated with female functions, may play an important role in the metabolic health of both men and women, and a team of researchers is trying to determine whether or not it can be connected to the development of type 2 diabetes.
Shift work may cause hormonal changes that increase type 2 diabetes risk
Working an overnight shift may cause metabolic changes in individuals that make them more prone to obesity, putting them at risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes, according to a new study.
New study explains why different types of fat have different health effects
Saturated fats activate a key metabolic pathway associated with the development of type 2 diabetes, while polyunsaturated fats like omega-3s shut this pathway down, according to a new study from a team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego.
Study determines potential cause for diabetes-cancer link
Individuals with type 2 diabetes are known to be at a higher risk for developing certain forms of cancer. However, medical professionals have been largely unclear on some of the potential causes for this correlation.
Researchers find cellular abnormalities cause some people's bodies to store more fat, putting them at risk for type 2 diabetes
Dysfunctions in the fat cells of some individuals may predispose them to obesity, type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders, according to a new study from a team of Swedish researchers. They said they hope their findings could lead to the development of new therapies that target these irregularities.
Improving type 2 diabetes treatment outcomes may be key to controlling healthcare costs
Lowering healthcare costs while improving treatment outcomes are among the top concerns of medical professionals and lawmakers at the moment. Improving the care of individuals with type 2 diabetes may be one of the most effective areas to begin addressing these problems.
Researchers find high risk of side effects associated with two new type 2 diabetes medications
Two new drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes may be associated with an increased risk of severe pancreatic and thyroid side effects, according to a new study out of the University of California, Los Angeles.
Type 2 diabetes may increase risk of Alzheimer’s disease, study finds
Individuals with type 2 diabetes may be significantly more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease as they grow older, according to a new study from a team of Japanese researchers.
Researchers uncover rising prevalence of alcohol-related deaths among type 1 diabetics
Individuals with type 1 diabetes are commonly advised to avoid drinking alcohol, as this may interfere with their blood sugar management. Yet, a new study indicates that many individuals with the condition may be ignoring this advice.
Amount and length of time a person has been obese impact type 2 diabetes risk
A person's "lifetime dose" of obesity may be a better predictor of their risk of developing type 2 diabetes than a single reading of their body mass index, according to a new study out of the University of Michigan.
New study suggests inflammation may not be cause of obesity-type 2 diabetes link
For years, it has been assumed that obesity led to type 2 diabetes by causing inflammation, which was thought to change the way the body reacts to the effects of insulin. However, a new study suggests that this hypothesis may need an update.
Resveratrol shown to reduce risk of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes
The antioxidant resveratrol, which is commonly found in red wine and grapes, may significantly reduce an individual's chances of developing metabolic syndrome, a collection of cardio-metabolic risk factors that often leads to type 2 diabetes, according to a new study.
Opticians may help identify undiagnosed type 2 diabetes cases
Type 2 diabetes is an extremely common metabolic disorder, but estimates have indicated that up to 50 percent of the people with the condition are unaware they have it. New research suggests that opticians my have a role to play in identifying the undiagnosed.
Electronic health records shown to improve type 2 diabetes care
Electronic health records (EHRs) may help doctors provide significantly better care to individuals with type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
New study explains why only some obese people get type 2 diabetes
Obesity is widely regarded as the leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes, yet some people who are overweight never develop the metabolic condition. Why is this? The question has plagued scientists and doctors for years, with few satisfactory answers.
