Research on Diabetes

Hope for Reversing Type 2 Diabetes. New research raises the tantalizing possibility that drastic changes in diet may reverse Type 2 diabetes in some people. New York Times, 04/18/2016.

Artificial pancreas provides better real-world control of type 1 diabetes. A system that combines frequent blood sugar measurements with software that varies the rate at which insulin is pumped into the body can significantly improve glucose control in type 1 diabetics. Reuters, 09/17/2015.

Prediabetes Increases Cancer Risk By 15%. A new study published in Diabetologia shows a link between prediabetes and cancer, especially in the liver, stomach, pancreas, breast, and endometrium. Time Healthland, 09/06/2014. (Also see Cancer)
