Study finds Asian Americans have high rate of type 2 diabetes
Despite having a lower prevalence of obesity, Asian Americans are more likely to have type 2 diabetes, and the numbers continue to worsen, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University researchers.
Excess fat may cause genetic alterations that increase type 2 diabetes risk
High levels of body fat may cause chemical changes in DNA, according to a new study from Medical College of Georgia researchers. The findings could help explain the high prevalence of chronic disease among obese individuals, including type 2 diabetes.
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.
Electric light exposure before bed may alter metabolic function, increase type 2 diabetes risk
Exposure to electric light in the hours just before going to bed may cause a disruption to the metabolic system that increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new report from Brigham and Women’s Hospital researchers.
Increasing step count may lower diabetes risk
Reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes doesn’t have to be a complicated process. In addition to making improvements in diet, a new study has found that simply taking a few extra steps each day can dramatically cut the chances of developing the metabolic condition.
Researchers discover process by which coffee lowers type 2 diabetes risk
Millions of people turn to coffee each morning to get a jumpstart on their day, but most probably don’t realize their morning ritual may actually be lowering their risk for type 2 diabetes.
Obesity may cluster among social groups
Obesity has become a nationwide epidemic. This has had a destructive impact on the rate of type 2 diabetes. A new study from a team of Miriam Hospital researchers has shown that a person’s social network may play a large role in whether or not they are obese or able to lose weight.
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.
Lowering drug co-pays may help diabetics stay healthier
Type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions can be the most costly diseases to care for. However, a new study from a team of Florida researchers has found that lowering insurance copayments could result in lower costs for everyone.
Type 2 diabetes-related hospitalizations increasing
Cases of reported type 2 diabetes are increasing across the country. As these numbers rise, so too do the number of people who experience potentially serious complications.
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.
Drinking may worsen the vision of diabetics
Moderate alcohol consumption among individuals with type 2 diabetes may increase the risk of poor visual acuity, according to a new study from UK researchers.
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.
Genetic variations may hinder weight loss efforts
While losing weight may significantly reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, some individuals may have a harder time than others accomplishing this. According to a new study from Finnish researchers, certain genetic variations may make it difficult to burn fat and achieve healthy blood sugar levels.
Magnesium supplementation may cut diabetes risk
Daily magnesium supplementation may help overweight individuals who have become insulin resistant improve their condition and avoid type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from German researchers.
