Type 2 diabetes alters the behavior of discs in the vertebral column      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Type 2 diabetes alters the behavior of discs in the vertebral column, making them stiffer, and also causes the discs to change shape earlier than normal. As a result, the disc's ability to withstand pressure is compromised. This is one of the findings of a new study in rodents from a team of engineers and physicians.

Heart organoids simulate pregestational diabetes-induced congenital heart disease      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

An advanced human heart organoid system can be used to model embryonic heart development under pregestational diabetes-like conditions, researchers report. The organoids recapitulate hallmarks of pregestational diabetes-induced congenital heart disease found in mice and humans. The findings also showed that endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and lipid imbalance are critical factors contributing to these disorders, which could be ameliorated with exposure to omega-3s.

Diabetes medication class tied to lower risk of kidney stones      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Type 2 diabetes is associated with increased risk of kidney stones, but some forms of treatment for this condition may also have the benefit of lowering risk of kidney stones. Researchers found that there was an association between the use of sodium-glucose contratransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and a lower risk of developing kidney stones.

Simple and reliable early prediction of diabetes      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Diabetes often remains undetected until it has already damaged organs or nerves. This is partly due to the fact that diagnosis at an early stage is time-consuming and difficult. An international team of researchers has shown that a mathematical calculation based on just two values taken from a blood sample enables the reliable and inexpensive diagnosis of diabetes at an early stage.

New medicine can create a new life for diabetes patients -- without needles      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Researchers have found a new way to supply the body with insulin. The medication that can be taken orally has already been tested on baboons, in which it was found to lower the blood sugar levels without causing hypoglycemia. The new insulin is ready to be tested on humans in 2025. If all goes well, diabetics are facing an easier life without injections.
