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 […]
Targeting the body’s ceramide chemistry in a subtle way could lead to the development of safe new treatments for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other metabolic conditions. Scientists have reversed prediabetes by switching off a certain enzyme. This was the suggestion that scientists made after finding that they could reverse prediabetes in mice with […]
A new study from Ohio State University has found that a low carb diet can help those at a higher risk of developing diabetes — even if they do not actually lose any weight. A low carb diet may reverse metabolic syndrome and stave off type 2 diabetes in people at risk. The research specifically […]
New research finds an elevated risk of type 2 diabetes among people who take statins in an effort to lower their cholesterol levels and keep heart disease at bay. Among statins’ unwanted effects may be an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, new research suggests. Many people take statins to lower cholesterol and reduce the […]
