New study links reliance on car to obesity, with implications for type 2 diabetes
The surging obesity rates and the increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes may be closely associated with Americans' growing reliance on automobiles, suggests a new study out of the University of Illinois.
New study confirms benefits for type 2 diabetics of combining aerobic exercise and resistance training
When aerobic exercise is combined with resistance training, it can lead to significant improvements in cardiovascular risk factors among individuals with type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from a group of Canadian researchers.
Insulin resistance precedes mitochondrial dysfunction in type 2 diabetics, study finds
Insulin resistance, which is common in individuals with type 2 diabetes, may result from dysfunctions in the mitochondria, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Cambridge. The findings help answer an enduring mystery that has perplexed diabetes investigators for years.
Silencing a protein could turn fat cells into energy burners in individuals at risk for type 2 diabetes
Silencing the neuropeptide Y (NPY) protein in the brain may turn adipose tissue into a type of fat that burns excess energy rather than storing it, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University researchers. The findings could have major implications for obese individuals who are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Late sleepers eat more calories and have higher BMIs, putting them at risk for type 2 diabetes
Individuals who regularly stay up late may be more likely to eat excess calories and have a higher body mass index (BMI), putting themselves at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, according to new research out of Northwestern University.
Physical activity leads to significant improvement in blood sugar control for type 2 diabetics
A structured exercise program, whether it includes aerobic workouts or resistance training, may help individuals with type 2 diabetes improve their blood sugar control, according to a new study from a team of Brazilian researchers.
Current testing measures may miss many children at risk for type 2 diabetes
An early diagnosis of type 2 diabetes can play an important role in successfully treating the condition, but researchers from Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics have found that standard testing measures may be insufficient for diagnosing the condition in obese children.
Researchers discover why some type 2 diabetes medications cause weight gain
Thiazolidinedione (TZD) medications may be effective at lowering blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes, but they have also been shown to cause significant weight gain. This can be a major health risk for individuals who are already more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease.
Researchers connect poor sleep and uncontrolled blood sugar in type 2 diabetics
Individuals with type 2 diabetes who sleep poorly at night may be more insulin resistant and have a harder time controlling their blood sugar levels than those who sleep well, according to a new study from a team of University of Chicago researchers.
Medical costs are higher for children with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes than healthy youths
Young people who have type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes have significantly higher annual medical expenses than children who do not have the disease, according to a new study from researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Vitamin D deficiency may be linked to type 2 diabetes risk in Caucasians, study finds
Vitamin D deficiency may contribute to racial differences in the way fat is stored in the body and increase the risk of type 2 diabetes among obese Caucasian children, according to a new study from a team of University of Pittsburgh researchers.
Researchers identify amino acids that may explain the benefits of gastric bypass surgery for type 2 diabetics
Lower levels of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) may explain why obese individuals with type 2 diabetes who opt for gastric bypass weight loss surgery are often able to improve their blood sugar control even before they lose any weight, according to a new study out of Duke University.
Nutrient in tangerines shown to limit type 2 diabetes risk
The antioxidant nobiletin, which occurs naturally in high levels in tangerines, may help individuals avoid the symptoms of metabolic syndrome and prevent them from developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from a group of University of Western Ontario researchers.
New medication may limit kidney damage in individuals with type 2 diabetes
A new medication developed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego may improve kidney function in individuals with type 2 diabetes and kidney disease, and help them avoid end-stage renal disease, according to a new study from the group.
Low-carbohydrate diets shown to improve kidney function in individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
Low-carbohydrate diets may reverse impaired kidney function in individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, according to a new study conducted by researchers at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
