August 7, 2018 Prescriptions for diabetes medications increased in the first two years after states expanded eligibility for Medicaid as part of the Affordable Care Act, compared to states that didn’t expand Medicaid. In 2014 and 2015, 29 states and the District of Columbia expanded eligibility for Medicaid among low-income adults. In a new study […]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 ...
July 31, 2018 Improved treatment for type 2 diabetes might result from a new study by University of Queensland researchers. Professor Jian Yang from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) and Queensland Brain Institute, and IMB colleague Angli Xue, investigated how genetic variants in the DNA in or around our genes may trigger the disease. […]Continue Reading ...
