Diabetes affects millions in the US. But new research suggests that it may affect patients in different ways.
Diabetes is a disease closely tied to weight, but are patients getting enough exercise to slim down? Maybe not, suggests a new study.
A first-of-its-kind study examined the potential relationship between taking statins, prescription medicines that treat high cholesterol, and diabetes complications like vision loss and kidney damage.
As people age, their brains may not work at full speed. For middle-aged people with type 2 diabetes, a decline in brain function may be more likely than for those who don’t have the disease.
Children are constantly told that eating a healthy breakfast may help with weight control and academic performance. But it may also prevent type 2 diabetes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that more than 1 in 3 adults are obese. And rising obesity rates may be tied to a rise in diabetes.
Diabetes affects more than 300 million people around the world and has many negative effects, including a higher risk of hypertension, stroke and even vision loss. And a new study suggests blacks may be more at risk for diabetic vision loss.
Gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy, has been on the rise. As more expectant women get high blood sugar, more children may also face the threat of getting the disease.
Blood sugar levels that are high but not high enough to be diabetes pose a health risk. Taking steps to reverse the condition may significantly cut the odds of getting heart disease and diabetes.
Losing excess weight is good for the health. But it may also be good for the finances, suggest the authors of a new study.
