Dr. Kristen Nadeau, principal investigator of the Restoring Insulin Secretion (RISE) Pediatric Medication Study, discusses treatment with a RISE participant. Nadeau is a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and Children’s Hospital Colorado. RISE includes one youth trial and two adult trials, all aiming to improve treatment for type 2 diabetes. […]Continue Reading ...
(HealthDay)—For patients with asymptomatic left ventricular systolic dysfunction (ALVSD), those with diabetes have increased risk of heart failure development and hospitalization, according to a study published in the June issue of Diabetes Care. Rasmus Rørth, M.D., from the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom, and colleagues examined the development of symptomatic heart failure, heart […]Continue Reading ...
A gene linked with obesity affects how pancreatic cells (pictured) processes insulin. Credit: Imperial College London A gene previously linked with obesity has been found to affect how the body processes insulin, with potential implications for some forms of diabetes. Scientists have uncovered a number of genes which may play a role in obesity and […]Continue Reading ...
Immunomodulatory signal presentation via synthetic hydrogel material promotes generation of T regulatory cells (green) in the local graft microenvironment (CD3+ T cells in red, and nuclei staining in blue) after implantation into a clinically relevant transplant model for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.

Credit: CC0 Public Domain A team of researchers from several institutions in the Netherlands and Yale University in the U.S. has found evidence that suggests deep brain stimulation (DBS) can help treat type 2 diabetes. In their paper published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, the group describes what happened when a single patient with […]Continue Reading ...
Duke researchers have identified a key fork in the road for the way the liver deals with carbohydrates, fats and protein. A mutant version of the BDK protein was tagged with green fluorescent protein for an experiment to show it wouldn’t enter the mitochondria (red).

A new study by UMass Medical School physician-scientist Benjamin U. Nwosu, MD, finds that children with type 1 diabetes who experienced a partial clinical remission, or “honeymoon phase,” had significantly lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol, five years after diagnosis. The honeymoon period is the brief period when some children with new onset type […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Very-low-carbohydrate diets can improve blood sugar control in type 1 diabetes, with low rates of hypoglycemia and other complications, according to an online patient survey. The researchers, led by Belinda Lennerz, MD, PhD, and David Ludwig, MD, PhD, of Boston Children’s Hospital, now call for controlled clinical trials of this approach. […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: Win Nondakowit/Fotolia Children of mothers with type 1 diabetes are at significantly higher risk of being overweight and of exhibiting insulin resistance. This was published by scientists from Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich in the journal Diabetologia. Type 1 diabetes is the most common metabolic disorder in childhood. But what […]Continue Reading ...
Improved medications for Type 2 diabetes are one step closer thanks to a new discovery reported this week by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Syracuse University. By modifying the key ingredient in current diabetes drugs, the researchers produced a compound that was effective for hyperglycemia in animal trials, yet without the most problematic […]Continue Reading ...
Physicians continue to recommend routine self-monitoring of blood glucose for patients with non-insulin treated type 2 diabetes, in spite of its lack of effectiveness, because they believe it drives the lifestyle change needed to improve glycemic control. Researchers conducted a qualitative study of 17 primary care physicians exploring to what extent and why physicians still […]Continue Reading ...
People with diabetes could be able to monitor their blood sugar without drawing blood using a system now being developed at the University of Waterloo. In a recent study, researchers combined radar and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to detect changes in glucose levels without the need for painful finger pricks several times a day. “We […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain Diagnosing type 2 diabetes in clinical practice may require only a single blood sample, according to a study led by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The study, published June 19 in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, found evidence that a positive result for two standard diabetes […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain The world-first discovery of a key metabolic hormone found in the venom and gut of Australia’s iconic platypus will now be investigated for its potential to treat type 2 diabetes, in new research led by the University of Adelaide. In a collaboration between the University of Adelaide, Flinders University, Monash University, […]Continue Reading ...
