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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
More diabetes testing may help millions avoid the condition
Routine blood testing may help identify individuals who are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, which could cut the rate of disease and help lower the costs associated with treating and caring for metabolic conditions.
Nutrient in birch bark may reduce type 2 diabetes risk
Birch bark may not be a staple of many people's diets. However, a new study from Chinese researchers has found that a nutrient in it may be able to improve metabolic function and limit the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Women with type 2 diabetes and depression may be at increased risk of heart disease
Women who have both depression and type 2 diabetes may be at an increased risk of dying from heart disease, according to a new study from Harvard School of Public Health researchers.
