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.
Asthma linked to poorer blood sugar management in children with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes
Children who suffer from asthma and type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes may be more likely to have poorly regulated blood sugar levels, according to a new study.
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.
A poor night's sleep may increase teens' risk of type 2 diabetes
A troubling number of adolescents are overweight or obese, which puts them at a significantly higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. New research suggests that they may be even more vulnerable to the condition if they have poor sleep habits.
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 discover new protein that plays a key role in insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
In a finding that could have important implications for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, a team of researchers has discovered a protein that plays a key role in the ability of cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream.
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.
Researchers develop new type 2 diabetes medication that produces few side effects
A team of researchers from Harvard University and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute is reporting it has developed a new compound that may effectively treat the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, while avoiding many of the side effects that accompany most currently available medications.
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.
