Earlier Screening for Diabetes Worthwhile
Posted: Sunday, June 06, 2010
It's currently recommended that people be screened for Type 2 diabetes starting at age 45, particularly if they are overweight. But a new study suggests that it would be worthwhile to start Type 2 diabetes screening earlier -- between the ages of 30 and 45.

Inhaling Diabetes? Study Suggests Link Between Air Pollution and Type 2 Diabetes
Posted: Sunday, June 06, 2010
Traffic-related air pollution, known to raise the risk for cardiovascular disease, may also increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in women. Low-grade inflammation may contribute to the higher incidence of Type 2 diabetes in women exposed to air pollution.

A1c Below Diabetes Levels Predicts CVD
Posted: Sunday, May 09, 2010
Researchers found that HbA1c values significantly predicted CVD or death, whereas FPG levels were not significant after adjustment for other risk factors. The additional usefulness of HbA1c may therefore justify the marginally higher cost of the test relative to the inexpensive FPG.
