Breakthrough research shows that type 2 diabetes occurs when fat from the liver overspills into the pancreas and confirms that weight loss can reverse it.
New research suggests that a three meals per day — and not a six meals per day — approach brings more benefits to people with type 2 diabetes.
A fat molecule found only in avocados shows signs of strengthening insulin sensitivity, according to research in mice. Share on PinterestAvocados contain a compound that could be a secret weapon against type 2 diabetes. Avocados aren’t merely a tasty addition to a diet — they contain a fat molecule that may safely reduce insulin resistance. […]
Recent studies have shown that people with type 2 diabetes who lose weight lower their risk of cardiovascular problems. But what happens if, after a time, they regain the weight they had lost? New research warns that maintaining weight loss is crucial when it comes to reducing diabetes-associated cardiovascular risk. Overweight and obesity are two […]
New research suggests that even ‘modest’ weight loss within 5 years of the initial diagnosis could help send type 2 diabetes into remission.
A new study has found a link between tallness and lower type 2 diabetes risk in male and female adults and relates it largely to male leg length.
Deep belly fat — which is hard to detect and measure — can increase women’s risk of type 2 diabetes over seven times, according to a new study.
New research dispels the prevalent notion that glucose drives inflammation in obesity-related type 2 diabetes. The findings may explain why so many treatments to prevent complications in type 2 diabetes have failed. Researchers used cell culture experiments to reveal that defects in the cells’ mitochondria, along with exposure to certain types of fats, drive inflammation […]
New research — using mouse models and fecal samples collected from humans — looks into the mechanisms that promote insulin resistance via the gut environment. The type of diet a person eats may be key, the researchers suggest. New research looks in more detail at the mechanisms linking diet to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance occurs […]
A new study in mice reveals the beneficial effects of whole-body vibration on inflammation and the microbiome. Whole-body vibration involves standing on a vibrating platform, such as the one shown here. Whole-body vibration (WBV) is a form of passive exercise that first appeared in the late 1990s and gained popularity in the last decade as […]
