Patient centered medical homes reduce costs and improve outcomes for type 2 diabetics, study finds
Anyone who suffers from type 2 diabetes knows that it can be an extremely expensive condition to live with. The frequent testing and constant need to take medications drive up costs significantly. Additionally, the complications that often occur add fuel to an already incendiary situation.
Researchers uncover why TZDs cause weight gain in type 2 diabetics
The class of type 2 diabetes medications known as thiazolidinediones, or TZDs, is very effective at lowering blood sugar levels in most people.
Daily high-dose aspirin therapy may support heart health in type 2 diabetics
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death among individuals with type 2 diabetes, but a simple over-the-counter medication may significantly reduce an individual's risk of experiencing a heart attack.
Common amino acid may help prevent type 2 diabetes
Adding more leucine, a common amino acid, to the diets of individuals at risk for developing type 2 diabetes may help them avoid the condition completely, according to a new study from researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center.
Researchers find way to prevent excess fat storage, reduce risk of type 2 diabetes in mice
Excessive fat buildup is one of the leading risk factors for type 2 diabetes, but a team of researchers from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases may have found a way to get the body to burn excess calories rather than store them as fat.
Key to inflammation-related diseases like type 2 diabetes may lie in fat tissue
Obesity, and more specifically excess body fat, is a well known risk factor for type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Poor diet before pregnancy could lead to metabolic problems including type 2 diabetes for offspring
It is well established that eating an unhealthy diet during pregnancy may impact the health of a woman's unborn child, but a new study suggests that this effect may extend to before conception.
New medication may improve kidney function in individuals with type 2 diabetes
Kidney failure is one of the most common complications of type 2 diabetes, but a new study has shown that individuals with the disease may be able to preserve and potentially even repair damage to their kidneys with the help of a new anti-inflammatory drug.
Rising type 2 diabetes rate shown to contribute to increasing kidney disease burden
The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has increased dramatically over the course of the last couple decades, and a new study from a team of University of Washington researchers suggests that this trend may be taking a toll on the kidney health of Americans.
Researchers identify genetic cause of inflammation-related tissue damage that causes type 2 diabetes
Inflammation caused by obesity is one of the leading causes of type 2 diabetes. However, it may be possible to limit inflammation in overweight individuals through gene therapies, according to researchers from Case Western Reserve University.
Researchers uncover potential genetic link behind higher rates of type 2 diabetes among African Americans
African Americans are known to have higher rates of type 2 diabetes than Caucasians, but the reasons behind this association are not well understood. Now, a new study suggests that the answer may lie in their genes.
Type 2 diabetes may increase risk of second stroke or heart attack, study finds
Individuals with type 2 diabetes who have suffered a heart attack or stroke may be significantly more likely to experience a second cardiovascular event, according to a new study from researchers at Vanderbilt University.
High-fat diet may damage weight-regulating process in the brain, increasing type 2 diabetes risk
Many overweight individuals have had the experience of trying unsuccessfully to lose weight. This contributes to the obesity epidemic that is putting millions of people at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Many young people with type 2 diabetes have impaired cardiovascular function
As a symptom of the childhood obesity epidemic, many young people are testing positive for type 2 diabetes, something that was previously thought to be nearly impossible. Now, a new study suggests that the condition may be taking a toll on the cardiovascular health of adolescents.
Hormone therapy for prostate cancer may raise type 2 diabetes risk
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a common treatment for men with aggressive forms of prostate cancer and has saved countless lives. However, a new study from a team of Philippine researchers suggests that the treatment may also raise a man's risk of type 2 diabetes.
