How A Specific Fat Protects Against Obesity and Diabetes
Posted: Thursday, March 08, 2007
A new study from Joslin Diabetes Center sheds light on why some people can eat excessive amounts of food and not gain weight or develop type 2 diabetes, while others are more likely to develop obesity and this most common form of diabetes on any diet.

Study Of Diabetes And Race Reveals The Imperfect Science Of Defining Ethnic Groups
Posted: Thursday, March 01, 2007
While previous biomedical research studies have found that genetics and race increase risk for some diseases, a new look into how researchers study genetic triggers of type 2 diabetes suggests that defining race remains an inexact science, with social and historic facts mixing with biology throughout the research process.

Research Identifies Risk-Factor Genes For Type 2 Diabetes
Posted: Thursday, March 01, 2007
A new study led by researchers at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) has identified four genes that increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This genetic discovery may help stem this rise in Type 2 diabetes.

Gene Test Will Identify Who Will Get Diabetes
Posted: Wednesday, February 14, 2007
An international team of scientists has made a breakthrough which could help halt the growth of diabetes. A set of genes that appear to raise the risk of adult-onset diabetes has been identified, promising a test that can predict who is likely to develop the disease.

Posted: Thursday, February 08, 2007
The gene variant appears to contribute to type 2 diabetes risk.

Gene Associated with Kidney Failure in Diabetes Identified
Posted: Thursday, January 18, 2007
Discovery can lead to treatment strategies for diabetic patients to protect them from kidney failure and may provide a marker to determine which diabetic patients are at increased risk for future kidney disease.

New Gene May Contribute to Development of Type 2 Diabetes
Posted: Thursday, December 28, 2006
Scientists from the new interdisciplinary LIMES (Life & Medical Sciences) Centre at the University of Bonn have identified a new gene which could play an important role in the development of diabetes.

Diabetes Gene Carries Similar Risk to Obesity
Posted: Thursday, November 09, 2006
Carrying two copies of a common variant of a particular gene doubles your chances of developing diabetes and puts you in a similar risk category to being clinically obese, according to a collaborative study led by UCL (University College London) researchers.

Diabetes Gene Carries Similar Risk to Obesity
Posted: Thursday, November 02, 2006
Carrying two copies of a common variant of a particular gene doubles your chances of developing diabetes and puts you in a similar risk category to being clinically obese.

Study: Genes and Diet Linked to Risk Factors for Heart Disease
Posted: Wednesday, October 25, 2006
Researchers from the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center (USDA HNRCA) at Tufts University and colleagues have found another link among genes, heart disease and diet.
