Hyperglycemia during critical illness may be used as a warning of future diabetes. Researchers writing in BioMed Central's open access journal Critical Care have found a significant association between acute illness complicated with hyperglycaemia and the future development of type II diabetes or glucose intolerance. Ivan Gornik worked with a team of researchers from University Hospital Centre Rebro, Croatia, to follow patients for 5 years after they were discharged from the hospital. There...

The research, published online Jan. 31, 2010, in the journal Nature Genetics, presents the first high-resolution atlas of these regulatory elements in the most studied cell type for treatment and prevention of type II diabetes. Together with colleagues in Barcelona, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have generated a complete map of the areas of the genome that control which genes are "turned on" or "off." The discovery, made in pancreatic islet cells, opens new...

Genes that regulate the energy consumption of cells have a different structure and expression in type II diabetics than they do in healthy people, according to a new study from the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institute published in Cell Metabolism. The researchers believe that these "Ëœepigenetic mutations' might have a key part to play in the development of the disease.Type II diabetes is characterized by a lower sensitivity to insulin in muscles and organs, and a reduced...

A genome-wide association study claims the workings of our internal body clock appear to be directly connected to diabetes and high levels of blood sugar. International research found faults in a key 'clock gene' were linked to blood sugar levels and type II diabetes. People with high blood sugar levels and diabetes have a greatly increased risk of developing a range of conditions, including cardiovascular diseases. Although many scientists suggest that our circadian rhythms (body clock) have...

AN estimated one in 10 middle-aged Malaysians has diabetes. But that's not what worries experts the most. Another one in five has what doctors call "pre-diabetes". The number of pre-diabetics is expected to climb as the nation gets older, fatter and more sedentary. Pre-diabetics are not only at risk of developing diabetes but are also at risk of suffering heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, blindness and nerve damage. "Your risk of heart attack or stroke is two to four times...
