In patients with recent onset type-2 diabetes, treatment with insulin or the diabetes drug metformin did not reduce inflammatory biomarkers, although the treatment did improve glucose control
A moderate aerobic exercise program, without weight loss, can improve insulin sensitivity in both lean and obese sedentary adolescents.
Genes that regulate the energy consumption of cells have a different structure and expression in type II diabetics than they do in healthy people.
A fast-growing vine that has gobbled up some 10 million acres in the Southeast, may prove to be a valuable dietary supplement for metabolic syndrome.
People with type 2 diabetes are not consuming sufficiently healthy diets and could benefit from ongoing nutritional education and counseling, according to a new study.
A breakthrough has uncovered a new gene that could lead to better treatment of type 2 diabetes, as well as a better understanding of how this widespread disease develops.
Researchers have discovered a new molecular mechanism that regulates specialized pancreatic cells and insulin secretion. Findings may help identify new molecular targets for treating both rare and common forms of diabetes and hyperinsulinemia.
Studies link improvements in diabetes control to frequency of use and demonstrate continued improvements 12 months after use, with remarkably low occurence of severe hypoglycemia.
New, long-range research shows that large abdominal fat cells and/or waist-to-height ratios are key indicators of future diabetes.
Children with more fat around their midsections could be at a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease later in life, researchers say.
A new study demonstrates that activation of the protein -TGR5- can treat type 2 diabetes and reduce weight gain.
