Disease management programs help type 2 diabetics improve their condition
Type 2 diabetes can be difficult to control. Many people don't fully understand how aspects of their lifestyle can impact their condition or the best ways to take charge of their symptoms.
Women who eat a poor diet during pregnancy increase their child's type 2 diabetes risk
Women who eat an unhealthy diet during pregnancy may be putting their offspring at risk for later developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Cambridge in the UK.
Researchers discover protein that determines body types associated with type 2 diabetes
A single protein may be responsible for determining whether a person is pear-shaped or apple-shaped, according to a new study from a team of British researchers. The finding could also help doctors understand why some people are at a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than others.
Mediterranean diet cuts risk of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes
A Mediterranean-style diet may help reduce the risk of developing metabolic syndrome, a constellation of conditions that increases the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from a team of Greek researchers.
Researchers find 'diabetes belt' running through Southern U.S.
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified a group of states that officials are referring to as the "diabetes belt" of the U.S. for its high rates of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The officials said that identifying these states could help them direct resources to prevent the disease.
Diabetics face heightened risk of premature death
Despite the widespread belief that type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes can be cared for relatively easily, individuals with the disease still die much earlier than healthy people, according to a new study from University of Miami researchers.
Researchers think type 2 diabetes risk may be in the air
Endocrinologists are increasingly coming to the belief that pollutants in the air may increase the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Research has suggested that there may be a correlation. Now, a new study will try to confirm the link.
Low potassium levels may be reason for type 2 diabetes disparity among African Americans and Caucasians
African Americans are almost twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes than Caucasians, according to the American Diabetes Association. Now, a new study has shown that potassium levels may be one of the leading causes of this disparity.
Researchers discover cellular mechanism that may increase obesity and type 2 diabetes risk
A team of researchers has discovered a signaling pathway in the brain that may play an important role in telling the body that the stomach is full and that it is time to stop eating. The findings could have major implications for the prevention of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Most diabetics have poor control over their condition
The vast majority of individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes in the U.S. as well as around the world receive ineffective care and do a poor job of managing their condition, which increases their risk of developing cardiovascular complications and dying early, according to a new report from University of Washington researchers.
Researchers identify new cause of loss of insulin production among those who have type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
One of the main causes of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes is the death of insulin-producing beta cells. Doctors have worked for years to find a way to prevent the death of these vital cells, and now researchers from the University of Texas may have found a clue that could lead to the development of more effective treatments.
Evolutionary factors may have led to increased diabetes susceptibility in humans
An evolutionary "wrong turn" may be responsible for humans' propensity to become obese and develop type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from researchers at the University of California, San Diego.
Aspirin may help diabetics with kidney disease avoid heart complications
Heart disease is the most common cause of death for individuals who have type 2 diabetes. However, a new study from a team of Japanese researchers shows that low daily doses of aspirin may help reduce some this risk in patients who have both diabetes and kidney disease.
Fatty liver may predict type 2 diabetes onset
Measurements of insulin resistance and blood sugar levels are commonly used to assess patients for diabetes risk. However, a new study out of Stanford University shows that the presence of fat in the liver may be one of the strongest predictors of whether or not a person will eventually develop type 2 diabetes.
High blood sugar levels increases death risk in hospitalized elderly
A group of Spanish researchers is calling for elderly patients who are admitted to hospitals to be tested for type 2 diabetes following a recent study they conducted, which found that many individuals die while in the hospital from undiagnosed blood sugar-related problems.
