Unique class of blood markers found in type 2 diabetics
A study published in Circulation Research: Journal of the American Heart Association has revealed that people who have type 2 diabetes may have different blood levels of some ribonucleic acids (RNAs) than non-diabetic individuals.
Genes leading to insulin sensitivity may not be stimulated in type 2 diabetics
A study conducted at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland has shown that obese people carry abnormal genes and proteins that may contribute to insulin resistance.
New drug developed that may help people with type 2 diabetes
Australian scientists have found a drug that may potentially be useful in helping to treat type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes and socioeconomic status may be linked in black women
A research team at Boston University's Slone Epidemiology Center have found a link between socioeconomic status and the risk for type 2 diabetes in African American women.
Study links obesity and type 2 diabetes to infertility in women
Insulin resistance - defined by persistently elevated levels of insulin and the abnormal regulation of blood sugar - is a common characteristic of type 2 diabetes. According to a recent study, it is also a feature of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which is the most common cause of infertility and affects up to one in 10 women.
Fish oils could help reduce inflammation associated with type 2 diabetes
University of California, San Diego School of Medicine scientists have unveiled the mechanism behind the effectiveness of omega-3 fatty acids in reducing inflammation and insulin resistance associated with type 2 diabetes.
Cinnamon may protect prediabetics from developing type 2 diabetes
A study conducted by chemists at the U.S. Department of Agriculture suggests that cinnamon - which is known to contain powerful antioxidative compounds - could potentially reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Scientists: People with undiagnosed diabetes should be screened for chronic kidney disease
According to a study that will be published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society Nephrology, millions of Americans with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes may be unaware that they have chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Impaired self-control can be a symptom of type 2 diabetes
A study published in BioPsychoSocial Medicine reports that type 2 diabetes - a very common disease associated with obesity - may be associated with an inability to resist the temptation of food. The neurological changes that result from poor impulse control may exacerbate diabetes.
Gastric bypass may help regulate insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetics
Research presented at the Endocrine Society's 92nd annual meeting has revealed that gastric bypass surgery could potentially benefit patients with type 2 diabetes.
Evidence found linking type 2 diabetes and many cancers
Experts at the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society have revealed emerging evidence that connects type 2 diabetes and the incidence of cancer.
Surgical procedure may result in better glucose control for type 2 diabetics
Doctors at Allegheny General Hospital in Pennsylvania have discovered a link between the central nervous system and the development of type 2 diabetes.
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.
Obesity and weight gain later in life may increase risk for type 2 diabetes
A study published in the June issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association reports that people over age 65 who are obese, carry excess fat around the waist or gain weight later in life have an increased risk for type 2 diabetes.
