Extended Sleep and Diabetes Risk

Catch Up Sleep Can Reduce Sleep Loss-Associated Diabetes Risk

Recent studies have linked sufficient sleep to a reduced diabetes risk. This may not sound well to most people who do not get enough sleep especially during weekdays. But new studies seem to indicate that catching up some sleep during the weekend may help reduce diabetes risk associated with sleep loss. Researchers from the University of Chicago sleep laboratory found out that lean, healthy young men eating a contr
Exercise- Mimicking Molecule Key To Future Type 2 Diabetes Treatment

Exercise- Mimicking Molecule Key To Future Type 2 Diabetes Treatment

Researchers from the University of Southampton in the UK have developed a key molecule that can mimic the effects of exercise in the body. This may prove to be a potential target for developing future treatments of conditions such as type 2 diabetes and obesity. The findings were recently published in the journal Chemistry. Ali Tavassoli, a professor of chemical biology at the University of Southampton , along with
Toxins From Bacteria May Cause Type 2 Diabetes

Toxins From Bacteria May Cause Type 2 Diabetes

New research indicates that exposure to toxins from a certain type of bacteria may aid in the development of type 2 diabetes. Scientists from the University of Iowa observed that rabbits exposed to a toxin produced by the Staphylococcus aureus bacteria also developed symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes such as impaired glucose tolerance and insulin resistance. Results of the study appeared in the journal mBio.
Artificial Pancreas Help Improve Type 1 Diabetes Treatment

Artificial Pancreas Help Improve Type 1 Diabetes Treatment

Technology has helped in developing the treatments needed to address many health conditions. In the case of type 1 diabetes, researchers may have a new way to combat the disease by developing an external artificial pancreas. In this line, the world’s first clinical trial for three new alternative treatments for type 1 diabetes was conducted by researchers at the University of Montreal and the ICRM. The said t
Bile Acids May Aid In Battle Against Diabetes

Bile Acids May Aid In Battle Against Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a growing medical concern that is linked to the growing problem of obesity in many countries. The association may lie with how the body processes insulin. Type 2 diabetes comes as a result of the body not using insulin effectively. In the same way, obesity can cause the inflammation of fat tissue, which leads to the fat cells becoming more insensitive to insulin. Researchers are now trying to wor
Study: Insulin, Other Diabetes Medications May Do More Harm Than Good As Patients Get Older

Study: Insulin, Other Diabetes Medications May Do More Harm Than Good As Patients Get Older

A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of Michigan Health System, the University College London, and the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System indicates that insulin shots and other diabetic drugs may have a negative impact among type 2 diabetes patients, especially those over the age of 50. The researchers say that the negative side effects can overwhelm the benefits that these diabetes drugs over ti
Women With Diabetes At Higher Risk Of Developing Coronary Heart Disease

Women With Diabetes At Higher Risk Of Developing Coronary Heart Disease

A recent study shows that women with diabetes may have a higher risk of developing coronary heart disease as compared to men with the same disease. The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia, University of Cambridge in the UK, University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands and the George Institute for Global Health in Sydney, Australia. Results of the said study were
Coffee Can Lower Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Coffee Can Lower Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Many people like to drink coffee. It is considered one of the more popular beverages in the world. Aside from the usual reasons why people like to drink them, it seems that coffee may have other benefits to offer. Researchers indicate that drinking coffee may help lower type 2 diabetes risk. A new large US study seems to indicate that drinking coffee can lower a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Re
People Living In Populated Areas Conducive To Walking Show Lower Diabetes Risk

People Living In Populated Areas Conducive To Walking Show Lower Diabetes Risk

Diabetes is a growing problem among many people around the world suffering from the disease. While there is currently no cure available, people can still manage diabetes to live normally to a certain degree. Current research is helping people to understand the disease more. One study for example, has indicated that people living in densely populated neighborhoods may face lesser risk of diabetes compared to people

New Research Suggests Diabetes As An Inflammatory Disease

Diabetes is a disease that currently no cure available. New research provides a better understanding of the disease that may someday help in discovering a cure. But for now, researchers are still uncovering the puzzles and trying to better understand the disease that now affects millions of people worldwide. Some new research suggests that diabetes may be an inflammatory disease. Researchers from Denmark uncovered
