New medication may prevent onset of type 2 diabetes
A medication commonly used to control blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes may also be useful in helping those with pre-diabetes avoid developing the full condition, according to a new study from researchers at Case Western Reserve University.
Antioxidants during pregnancy may reduce type 2 diabetes risk in offspring
A diet that is rich in antioxidants and low in fat and carbohydrates may help pregnant women protect their unborn children from future obesity and type 2 diabetes risk, according to a new study from Philadelphia Children's Hospital researchers.
Omega-3s may help obese individuals ward off type 2 diabetes
Eating more omega-3 fatty acids could help individuals avoid many of the chronic diseases that accompany obesity, including type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Researchers find link between cigarette smoke and type 2 diabetes
Exposure to cigarette smoke - even secondhand smoke - can significantly increase an individual's risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.
Drug shown to prevent type 2 diabetes in those with risk factors
A medication currently used to treat high blood sugar may help most individuals who are obese and have other metabolic risk factors for type 2 diabetes completely avoid developing the condition. The findings could have implications for millions of Americans.
Single gene may be responsible for increased type 2 diabetes risk
A variation of a single gene may be responsible for an increased type 2 diabetes risk, according to a new study from a team of Italian researchers. The findings could have important implications for the diagnosis and treatment of the condition in the future.
Type 2 diabetes medication may increase risk of heart complications
The medication rosiglitazone has been proven effective in reducing the blood sugar of patients with type 2 diabetes. However, it has also been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular problems. A new study has confirmed these risks, and its authors warn that there may be safer alternatives.
Obese teens show risk factors for heart disease and type 2 diabetes
Childhood obesity is becoming increasingly common in the U.S. Now, a new study has found that the condition may be putting millions of teenagers at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, and that a poor diet is largely to blame.
Changing cooking oil may benefit postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes
A daily dose of safflower cooking oil may help postmenopausal women who suffer from type 2 diabetes improve many of the symptoms of their condition, according to a new study from Ohio State University researchers.
Researchers find amino acids that increase type 2 diabetes risk
Measuring five amino acids in the blood may help doctors identify patients who are at the greatest risk of developing type 2 diabetes decades before they present symptoms, according to a new study from researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Researchers find mechanism that controls insulin production
A team of Johns Hopkins University researchers may have discovered the chemical switch that signals beta cells in the pancreas to begin secreting insulin. They said that their findings could have major implications for treating type 2 diabetes.
Understanding a condition that results in low blood sugar could yield new treatment for type 2 diabetes
A potential new treatment for a condition that is essentially the opposite of diabetes could offer hope for those who suffer from type 2 diabetes, as findings from a team of British researchers suggest that it is possible to reverse defects in the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas.
Cost of treating type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes disproportionately falls on 10 states
A new report from the Institute for Alternative Futures shows that 10 states currently bear a disproportionate segment of the type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes burden in terms of costs, and predicts that the situation will only worsen in the coming years unless something is done to slow the spread of the disease.
New device could ease pain of blood sugar testing in people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes
One of the more unpleasant aspects of having type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes is monitoring blood sugar levels. This often involves somewhat painful pricks on the fingers to draw blood for testing. However, a new system being developed by a team of engineers at Arizona State University may help individuals avoid this process by testing their tears.
Newer drugs may be less effective at treating type 2 diabetes than older options
In recent years, pharmaceutical companies have touted their new type 2 diabetes drugs as significant breakthroughs that could lead to much better control of the disease. However, a team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University recently found that older, less expensive medications may be just effective and carry a lower risk of side effects.
