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.
Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes grow in prevalence
The number people in the world with either type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes has more than doubled over the last three decades, according to a new paper from an international group of researchers.
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.
Excessive TV viewing may be linked to increased type 2 diabetes risk
Watching TV is the most commonly reported activity in the U.S. after working and sleeping, but a new study suggests that overindulging in television viewing may be associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular complications.
Preventing the breakdown of insulin may be possible with new treatment for type 2 diabetes
A new study out of the Mayo Clinic in Florida suggests that it may be possible to control blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics by preventing the breakdown of insulin, rather than continually working to boost insulin levels.
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.
Excess fat consumption during pregnancy is shown to increase type 2 diabetes risk in future generation
Obesity during pregnancy is known to increase a child’s future chance of being overweight and developing type 2 diabetes. However, a new study from a team of University of Illinois researchers suggests that a fatty diet during pregnancy may be just as great a risk as excess weight.
Natural substance may improve insulin sensitivity and limit fatty liver deposits in individuals with type 2 diabetes
A natural substance known as dilauroylphosphatidylcholine, or DLPC, has been shown by a recent study to reduce fatty deposits in the liver and improve insulin sensitivity, two major problems among individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Drug pairing may raise blood sugar, putting type 2 diabetics at risk
The antidepressant Paxil and cholesterol-lowering drug Pravachol are commonly prescribed in conjunction with one another, but a new study indicates that the combination may lead to dangerous increases in blood sugar in all patients, particularly those with type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes patients may be more likely to contract tuberculosis
Individuals with type 2 diabetes are already known to be at an increased risk of several other diseases, including heart disease, kidney failure and neuropathy. Now, a new study from researchers at the University of Texas has found that they may also be more likely to acquire tuberculosis (TB).
