Researchers identify protein that is critical to insulin production
A team of researchers from the UK has identified a particular protein that plays a critical role in the release of insulin. The researchers believe that their findings could lead to improved treatments for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Disease management programs help non-insulin-treated diabetic patients control their symptoms
A new disease management program developed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego has been shown to help individuals with type 2 diabetes lower their HbA1c levels, improve blood sugar control and improve overall quality of life, according to a new study.
Spouses of type 2 diabetics often experience symptoms of depression
Living with type 2 diabetes doesn't just affect the person with the disease. New findings suggest that it can also have a major impact on an individual's spouse, which may result in high levels of anxiety and even depression.
Researchers identify mechanism behind diabetic complications
Blood vessel problems are among the most common complications for individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. However, a team of researchers from Washington University in St. Louis recently discovered the underlying cause of these complications, which may enable them to produce improved medications that help individuals avoid the problems.
CDC updates diabetes prevalence estimates
The number of individuals who have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes continues to rise at an alarming rate, according to new numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Most med school grads are unprepared to treat diabetes
Many recent graduates of medical school programs may have very little training in how to care for chronic disease, which could greatly impair their ability to treat a patient who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University.
Children who get short sleep are more likely to be obese and develop diabetes
Children who have poor sleep habits are more likely to be obese and are at a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from University of Chicago researchers.
National economies shown to influence obesity, diabetes rates
Obesity rates in the U.S. have reached epidemic proportions. This is leading to a sharp increase in the number of people who have type 2 diabetes. Now, a new study from Oxford University researchers shows that the country's economic system may be one of the greatest contributing factors.
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.
Chemical exposure may increase type 2 diabetes and obesity risk
Researchers are increasingly coming to the conclusion that environmental chemicals to which nearly everyone is exposed may have a role in increasing the odds of developing type 2 diabetes. Several recent studies have shown that environmental toxins may be a major risk factor for the condition.
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.
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.
Researchers plan to study resveratrol's ability to curb diabetes risk
A team of researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University was recently granted $600,000 by the American Diabetes Association to study the effects of the antioxidant resveratrol on individuals with insulin resistance, a condition that often develops into type 2 diabetes.
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?
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.
