Gut bacteria in culture. Credit: Tao Liu and Xiaoyan Pang/Shanghai Jiao Tong University The fight against type 2 diabetes may soon improve thanks to a pioneering high-fiber diet study led by a Rutgers University-New Brunswick professor. Promotion of a select group of gut bacteria by a diet high in diverse fibers led to better blood […]Continue Reading ...
Diabetes can be managed with healthy diet and lifestyle. Credit: University of Auckland New research shows increasing numbers of children and teens under-15 in Auckland are developing type 2 diabetes, and that rates among Pacific and Māori children are up to 18 times higher than for European children. The findings are based on 21 years […]Continue Reading ...
1) Fasting or obesity induces SDF-1 expression in adipocytes. 2) Its autocrine action activates ERK signaling. 3) SDF-1-induced ERK signal concomitantly induces serine phosphorylation of IRS-1 protein, and degrades IRS-1 protein. This attenuates 4) insulin-mediated Akt phosphorylation and 5) glucose uptake. Credit: Osaka University Scientists at Osaka University have discovered that Stromal derived factor-1 (SDF-1) […]Continue Reading ...
Image one shows the receptor (green) inside the cell (cell nuclei in blue). Image Two shows the tweaked compound, where much of the receptor remains on the outside of the cell.

Credit: McMaster University A new study from McMaster and York universities has found that poor muscle health may be a complication of Type 1 diabetes, even among active twenty-somethings. The research team analyzed muscle biopsies of young […]Continue Reading ...
Health checks, including diabetes risk assessment, have been introduced in a number of countries. However, there are few population-based trials assessing the benefits, harms and costs of these screening programmes, and these have shown mixed results. Between 2001 and 2006, a population-based cardiovascular and diabetes screening programme was introduced in five out of 16 Danish […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: University of Queensland University of Queensland researchers have found a way to identify infants who will go on to develop type 1 diabetes. UQ Diamantina Institute researcher Professor Ranjeny Thomas said the discovery would lead to the development of better screening tests to identify children at highest risk. “Most children diagnosed with type 1 […]Continue Reading ...
Dynamic interactions between the nervous system, hormones and the immune system are normally ongoing, but in diabetes the balance is disturbed. Two studies published in EBioMedicine by an international research team from Uppsala University highlight the importance of the neurotransmitter beta-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. GABA is synthesized by […]Continue Reading ...
Unique inflammation patterns emerging in patients with type 1 diabetes and related kidney disease. Credit: Phil Jones, Senior Photographer, Augusta university Analysis of the inflammation-promoting proteins in the blood of patients with type 1 diabetes and related kidney disease indicates that the promoters of inflammation are diverse even in the same medical condition and that […]Continue Reading ...
Findings by Touchstone Center for Diabetes Research may advance the understanding of how diabetes drugs benefit heart function. Credit: UT Southwestern Medical Center A UT Southwestern study reveals the hormone glucagon’s importance to the development of insulin resistance and cardiac dysfunction during Type 2 diabetes, presenting opportunities to develop new therapies for diabetic diseases of […]Continue Reading ...

University of Queensland researcher Dr Emma Hamilton-Williams investigated differences in the gut microbiota. Credit: University of Queensland Scientists have found that targeting micro-organisms in the gut, known as microbiota, could have the potential to help prevent type 1 diabetes. University of Queensland researcher Dr. Emma Hamilton-Williams investigated differences in the gut microbiota, comparing those susceptible […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: Susan Buck Ms/Public Domain A drug commonly used to control high blood pressure may also help prevent the onset of type 1 diabetes in up to 60 percent of those at risk for the disease, according to researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the University of Florida in Gainesville. The […]Continue Reading ...
A study published in Diabetes Therapy has shown that an individualized approach to nutritional ketosis, combined with remote monitoring via a mobile application, could sustainably and safely reverse Type 2 diabetes. Credit: Image provided by Purdue Research Foundation A newly published study has shown that an individualized approach to nutritional ketosis (utilizing fat rather than […]Continue Reading ...
High-resolution model of six insulin molecules assembled in a hexamer. Credit: Isaac Yonemoto/Wikipedia Restoring levels of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ), a key molecule in energy production in cells, could overcome insulin resistance or pre-diabetes—a precursor to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Levels of CoQ and the presence of insulin resistance were analysed in a range […]Continue Reading ...
