Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online What is diabetes? According to the National Institutes of Health, diabetes is a chronic issue where an individual has higher than normal levels of sugar in the blood.

A number of studies have shown that excess insulin circulating in the bloodstream is a major independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, a new study from Joslin Diabetes Center finds that this condition, called hyperinsulinemia, is itself not a cause of atherosclerosis. In humans, insulin resistance, a condition in which insulin becomes less effective at lowering blood sugar levels, coexists with hyperinsulinemia. Both are associated with atherosclerosis, the buildup of...

University of Iowa scientists say they've discovered a molecular mechanism regulates specialized pancreatic cells and insulin secretion in a form of diabetes. The researchers said the mechanism -- found during research into permanent neonatal diabetes, a rare and severe form of diabetes in children -- involves a protein called ankyrin, which the researchers previously linked to potentially fatal human heart arrhythmias. The scientists said their findings may help identify new molecular...

By Genazzani, Alessandro D; Lanzoni, Chiara; Ricchieri, Federica; Baraldi, Enrica; Et al Abstract Background. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disease that is frequently observed to be related to increased insulin resistance independent of body weight. The use of insulin-sensitizer compounds, such as metformin, permits great improvement of such metabolic abnormality, restoring ovarian function and gonadal steroid synthesis and reducing insulin resistance. Aim. On...
