Scientists Identify a Critical Molecule That Helps Explain Why Diabetics Suffer from Non-Healing Wounds
Scientists have identified a critical molecule that helps explain why diabetics suffer from non-healing wounds and pinpoint a target for therapies that could help boost healing.
Researchers found they could reverse type 2 diabetes in laboratory models by dampening the inflammatory response in fat tissue.
Starting from human skin cells, researchers have created human insulin-producing cells that respond to glucose and correct blood-sugar levels.
Recent studies have shown that added sugars, particularly those containing fructose, are a principal driver of diabetes and pre-diabetes, even more so than other carbohydrates.
Majority of those surveyed expressed an interest in a peer mentoring program to improve diabetes control.
First-ever example of the flexible, easy-to-wear device offers a noninvasive glucose testing for patients with diabetes.
People with type 1 diabetes who intensively control their blood glucose (blood sugar) early in their disease are likely to live longer than those who do not.
Studies have shown that low intake of magnesium is a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes - but ethnicity and genes may make a difference.
Women with post-traumatic stress disorder are nearly twice as likely to develop type 2 diabetes compared with women who don't have PTSD.
A substantial proportion of older adults may be overtreated for diabetes because insulin and sulfonylureas can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
