A team of Wayne State University researchers recently developed several diabetic models to study impaired wound healing in diabetic corneas. Using a genome-wide cDNA array analysis, the group identified genes, their associated pathways and the networks affected by DM in corneal epithelial cells and their roles in wound closure.

Type 2 diabetes has long been linked to higher risk of depression in women, and previous research has associated both of these conditions with pain. But a new study suggests that vitamin D supplementation can reduce both depression and...Show More Summary
Vitamin D supplements may improve the well-being of women with diabetes and depression, a new study suggests. Researchers have found that supplementing can reduce certain types of pain associated with diabetes, including neuropathic pain in the lower body. Vitamin D decreases pain in women with type 2 diabetes and depression, according to a study conducted […]
First Nations adults with diabetes have more than double the risk of end-stage kidney disease compared with non-First Nations adults, found a new study in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).Diabetes and high blood pressure are...Show More Summary
Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have found that a genetic variation that is linked to increased levels of triglycerides - fats in the blood associated with disorders such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and stroke - is far more common than previously believed and disproportionally affects people of African ancestry.

Drinking two or more cups of coffee per day was associated with a 12 percent decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to fresh research. But man cannot live on coffee alone. Luckily, other foods may also help decrease the risk of the disease — or help those already diagnosed to manage the condition.
On World Diabetes Day, a study underlines importance of regular exercise for those with type 2 diabetes.
Sophia Antipolis, 14 November 2013. The risk of cardiovascular complications in people with type 2 diabetes is directly related to the frequency and duration of physical exercise, according to results of a large follow-up study reported...Show More Summary
A scientist has created a novel noninvasive breathalyzer device that he says can monitor blood glucose levels in diabetics. This is according to research presented at the 2013 American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Annual Meeting and Exposition. Show More Summary
New research suggests that preeclampsia during pregnancy is associated with an increased likelihood of developing kidney failure. However, after adjusting for diabetes and hypertension, the association was attenuated and no longer significant. Additional studies are needed to confirm the association of preeclampsia and kidney failure.

New research shows that regular long-term wild blueberry diets may help improve or prevent pathologies associated with the metabolic syndrome, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
In two comprehensive studies, scientists discovered new associations of two major type 2 diabetes risk genotypes and altered plasma concentrations of metabolic products. The "Virtual Institute Diabetes" (VID) joint research cooperation is thereby making an important contribution towards explaining the genetic and molecular basis of diabetes.
