Researchers explore whether type 2 diabetes induces the development of cancer
Swedish researchers have set out to determine why individuals with type 2 diabetes seem to have a higher risk of developing cancer.
Urbanization is associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes
A new study published in Public Library of Science Medicine reports that migrating to urban areas may be associated with a rise in obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Research reveals 12 genomic regions associated with type 2 diabetes
Scientists from the University of Michigan have found 12 regions of the genome that have DNA variants associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
Gene associated with type 2 diabetes may be related to protein in sea creatures
According to a study conducted at Queen Mary's School of Biological and Chemical Sciences in London, new insight has been shed upon type 2 diabetes with the discovery of a protein released by sea creatures.
Surgery for cancer may be dangerous for type 2 diabetics
A study published in the April 2010 issue of the journal Diabetes Care has revealed that type 2 diabetes patients who undergo cancer surgery are more likely to die after the operation than cancer patients without diabetes.
New study suggests link between childhood obesity and poor bone health
Research has shown that overweight children who do not receive enough exercise may be at high risk for type 2 diabetes. However, a study recently published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research suggests that these children may also be at risk for osteoporosis.
Vascular compression procedure may relieve symptoms of type 2 diabetes
Physicians at Allegheny General Hospital (AGH) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have discovered that the central nervous system may be linked to the onset and progression of type 2 diabetes.
People with type 2 diabetes may have a higher risk of developing liver disease
Researchers from St. Michael's Hospital, the University of Toronto and the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Canada report that adults newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes are at risk for developing serious liver disease.
Chinese herb may lessen the effects of type 2 diabetes
Research conducted at the Chinese Academy of Science in Shanghai, China has revealed that emodin - a natural product extracted from herbs such as Rheum palmatum and Polygonum cuspidatum - may be a useful treatment for type 2 diabetes.
Proteins identified in type 2 diabetes-induced erectile dysfunction
According to a study published in the March issue of Molecular and Cellular Proteomics, researchers at Case Western Reserve University and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine have discovered molecular changes associated with erectile dysfunction induced by type 2 diabetes.
High blood glucose during pregnancy may decrease child’s insulin sensitivity
A study presented at an Endocrine Society meeting reported that women with high levels of blood glucose during pregnancy are more likely to have children with low sensitivity to insulin.
Bone mass may be directly related to metabolic health
According to two recent studies that are published in this month's edition of Cell, there may be a key molecular link between bone remodeling and metabolism. Researchers found evidence that bone acts as an endocrine organ through the release of osteocalcin hormone, which causes cells in the pancreas to produce insulin.
Study: Prediabetics are not taking proper precautions to avoid type 2 diabetes
A recent study published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine revealed that only half of prediabetic adults in the U.S. take precautionary measures to avoid developing the disease.
Study: Immigrants have high risk of type 2 diabetes
According to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, immigrants who are female and of South Asian or African descent are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than long-term residents of Ontario.
Misfolded polypeptides may disrupt insulin secretion in type 2 diabetes
A research team at the University of California, Los Angeles has discovered that small clusters of islet amyloid polypeptides (IAPPSs) may play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes.
