A study suggests a new way to prevent vision loss and diabetic retinopathy with minimal side effects – a discovery which could affect as many as 93 million people worldwide.
News and research relating to diabetes, a condition characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from the body's inability to use blood glucose for energy. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas no longer makes insulin and therefore blood glucose cannot enter the cells to be used for energy. In type 2 diabetes, either the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin correctly.
Details published by the Endocrine Society outline a medical treatment that successfully induced remission of type 2 diabetes in clinical trial participants.
According to a recent study, low-calorie, natural rare sugars could help regulate glucose levels, which would make them a good option as a sweetener for people with diabetes.
A recently published study details how a commonly prescribed diabetes drug lowered the risk of developing diabetes in at-risk people and those with pre-diabetes.
Yale study details changes that could be a key to maintaining safe blood sugar level range, which would result in fewer complications for diabetics.
Research in cells suggests that a fasting-mimicking diet may reprogram pancreas cells that are unable to produce insulin and enable them to repair themselves and start making it.
A diet designed to imitate the effects of fasting appears to reverse diabetes for type 1 and type 2 diabetes by reprogramming cells, a new USC-led study shows.
