New Techniques Link Pre-Diabetes to Sleeping Disorders
Posted: Sunday, January 25, 2009
Using new advanced technological techniques, researchers have recently found convincing evidence that sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is closely linked to decreased insulin sensitivity, and other pre-diabetic conditions.

Cardiovascular Mortality Equally Likely for Diabetics as for CVD Patients
Posted: Thursday, January 08, 2009
Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) have been closely linked in several respects, but little solid quantification of the risk diabetes poses to cardiovascular mortality has been achieved. A recent study has made a profound discovery, that in the long-term, mortality due to cardiovascular events (heart attacks and strokes), is equally likely for diabetics with no previous cardiovascular disease history, as it is for individuals with known cardiovascular disease (and non-diabetic). The study was conducted solely on males, but the results are suspected to extend to both sexes.

Diabetes Treatments Becoming Costly
Posted: Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Over the past decade, not only have the number of type 2 diabetes cases been on the rise, but treating the disease has become more expensive. A recent study has revealed that type 2 diabetes treatments are becoming more complicated and more costly for the average patient.

Community Awareness Programs Help Reduce Diabetic Risk
Posted: Wednesday, September 10, 2008
Type 2 diabetes may be up to 95% preventable, though often major dietary, physical, and even social lifestyle changes are needed to achieve this end. A recent study has found that individuals who participate in community-based awareness programs are at lower risk for developing the disease, perhaps illuminating a more palpable way of preventing this dangerous condition.
