 Shoulder ultrasounds could be used to predict diabetesShoulder ultrasounds could be used to predict diabetes
 
The study, which will be presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, suggests that the “deltoid” muscle appearing unusually bright on ultrasound may be a warning sign of the condition.
 
   New research project to combat obesity, type 2 diabetes receives NIH fundingNew research project to combat obesity, type 2 diabetes receives NIH funding
 
A research project headed by a faculty member from the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, which will explore whether administering a protein that's produced in the body can help prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes, has received $464,145 in funding from the National Institutes of Health.
 
   Diabetes on the rise and insulin production may soon become inadequateDiabetes on the rise and insulin production may soon become inadequate
 
Diabetes affects millions of people and is currently one of the most prevalent and dreaded non-communicable conditions. The condition affects around 7000 people under the age of 25 years in UK finds a new survey. Some of the risk factors that worsen outcome of diabetics in the long run include being obese or overweight, having high levels of cholesterol or triglycerides and a high blood pressure.
 
 Obesity significantly increases risk of Type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease
 
Obesity significantly increases risk of Type 2 diabetes and coronary artery diseaseA Cleveland Clinic genetic analysis has found that obesity itself, not just the adverse health effects associated with it, significantly increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease. The paper was published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association Network Open.
 
 
 Study highlights prevalence of regional disparities in the treatment of type 1 diabetes
 
Study highlights prevalence of regional disparities in the treatment of type 1 diabetesHow the autoimmune disease type 1 diabetes is treated also depends on where the patients live in Germany.
 
 
 Alcohol consumption may attenuate long-term weight loss in people with Type 2 diabetes
 
Alcohol consumption may attenuate long-term weight loss in people with Type 2 diabetesResearch shows that losing weight can help prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. While best practice for weight loss often includes decreasing or eliminating calories from alcohol, few studies examine whether people who undergo weight loss treatment report changes in alcohol intake and whether alcohol influences their weight loss.
 
 
 Very low calorie diet for type 2 diabetes to be prescribed
 
Very low calorie diet for type 2 diabetes to be prescribedGeneral Practitioners in England would soon prescribe a very low calorie diet (VLCD) for patients with type 2 diabetes in England as part of an attempt to reverse the increasingly growing numbers of the disease.
 
 
 Aerobic exercise may reduce risk of diabetes-related renal disease
 
Aerobic exercise may reduce risk of diabetes-related renal diseaseAerobic exercise may reduce the risk of diabetes-related kidney disease in some people, according to a new study. The findings are published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology--Renal Physiology and was chosen as an APS select article for December.
 
 
 New therapeutic strategy is emerging for type 2 diabetes
 
New therapeutic strategy is emerging for type 2 diabetesDiabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are high over a prolonged period (hyperglycemia). In the case of type 2 diabetes, this phenomenon which is caused by a disruption of the glucose metabolism develops progressively and insidiously.
 
 
 Subset of immune B cells delays onset of type 1 diabetes in animal model
 
Subset of immune B cells delays onset of type 1 diabetes in animal modelResearchers have conducted a study showing that a specific subset of immune B cells delays the onset of type 1 diabetes in mice.
 
 
 New strategy for developing cell replacement therapies to combat type 1 diabetes
 
New strategy for developing cell replacement therapies to combat type 1 diabetesScientists have discovered the signals that determine the fate of immature cells in the pancreas. The research shows that they are very mobile and that their destiny is strongly influenced by their immediate environment.
 
 
 Experts debate over whether gut or brain is more important in regulating appetite
 
Experts debate over whether gut or brain is more important in regulating appetiteWhether gut or brain hormones are more important for the regulation of appetite and metabolism is not clearly defined. Imbalances in the control of appetite and metabolism can lead to obesity and diabetes, which have a negative impact on people's health and healthcare costs.
 
 
 New glucose binding molecule could be key to better metabolic control for diabetics
 
New glucose binding molecule could be key to better metabolic control for diabeticsScientists from the University of Bristol have designed a new synthetic glucose binding molecule platform that brings us one step closer to the development of the world's first glucose-responsive insulin which, say researchers, will transform the treatment of diabetes.
