Gut bacteria improve type 2 diabetes risk prediction

The microbial composition of the intestines is complex and varies widely from one individual to another. Many factors such as environmental factors, lifestyle,…

Non-coding DNA implicated in type 2 diabetes

DNA sequences that don't encode proteins were once dismissed as “junk DNA”, but scientists are increasingly discovering that some regions are important for…

High BPA levels in children associated with higher risk of obesity and abnormal waist circumference

Children who have higher levels of Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical previously used in many products for kids, like baby bottle and plastic toys, had a higher…

Body clock receptor linked to diabetes in new genetic study

The findings should help scientists to more accurately assess personal diabetes risk and could lead to the development of personalised treatments.Previous…

Exercise can produce healthy chatter between bone, fat and pancreatic cells

A small study of obese children enrolled in after-school exercise programs showed 12 weeks of vigorous exercise resulted in stronger bones, improved insulin…

Metabolite levels may be able to improve diabetes risk prediction

Measuring the levels of small molecules in the blood may be able to identify individuals at elevated risk of developing type 2 diabetes as much as a decade…

European scientists identify a gene network that predisposes to type 1 diabetes

Within a large international collaborative study, lead by Norbert Hübner (Max-Delbrück-Centrum für Molekulare Medizin (MDC) in Berlin-Buch, Germany) and Stuart…

Intervention lowered obesity rate in youth at high diabetes risk

An intervention in middle schools lowered the obesity rate in students at highest risk for type 2 diabetes, those who started out overweight or obese in sixth…

New gene variants associated with glucose, insulin levels, some with diabetes risk

A major international study with leadership from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers has identified 10 new gene variants associated with blood…

From biological basics to diabetes discovery
