Diabetes in the News

  • Gastric bypass surgery improves blood sugar handling and insulin sensitivity, study finds
    Gastric bypass surgery can lead to remission of type 2 diabetes along with weight loss. A new study examines why, finding that insulin sensitivity of the body's main glucose (sugar) storage sites improve after gastric bypass surgery.
  • Type 1 diabetes prevention: Insulin vaccine undergoes second trial
    A vaccination against type 1 diabetes may soon be available to young children: the Pre-POINTearly vaccination study will involve children between the ages of six months and two years from across Germany who have a first-degree relative with type 1 diabetes. In the preceding Pre-POINT study a positive immune response was triggered in children aged between two and seven years with the aid of powdered insulin. The follow-up Pre-POINTearly study will now test whether this effect can be confirmed by giving very young children oral insulin, and whether type 1 diabetes can be prevented in the long term.
  • Exercise is good for everyone, but some struggle more than others
    People with increased risk of type 2 diabetes need to exercise more than others to achieve the same results, according to new research.
