The number of people with diabetes in the world has quadrupled to over 400 million in 2014 from 108 million in 1980, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
A researcher from the University of Illinois has found a direct link between time outdoors and good health. Feeling relaxed in the great outdoors allows the body to invest more into supporting the immune system.
Have you ever tried to satisfy your sweet-tooth with low-calorie desserts, only to find yourself utterly unsated? Now, researchers have determined exactly why the body can't be fooled by artificial sweeteners - a revelation that holds promise for the dieting and diabetic worlds alike.
Peanuts and other nuts have been linked to lower death rates, according to a new study. Curiously, the same cannot be said when eating peanut butter.
Color blindness affects a significant portion of the population, most notably men. And now, new research has identified a new gene mutation that could possibly cause this condition.
With summer nearly a month away, there's a reason everyone is anticipating its arrival. The sun is always shining, school's out, you lay on the beach and tan, and you just feel better. Well, the latter may be because people are generally healthier in the summer.
New research shows that you can cut your risk for developing diabetes by between 14 and 25 percent just by replacing the daily consumption of one serving of a sugary drink with either water, or unsweetened tea or coffee.
It may not be as simple as that, but new research shows that losing as little as 30 minutes of sleep per day can have long-term consequences for body weight and metabolism.
Heavy drinkers who are middle-aged may have a higher stroke risk - more so than based solely on traditional factors such as high blood pressure and diabetes, according to a new study.
Water pollution is not exactly an underappreciated concern. For years state and federal officials have been working with experts to improve water quality, limit pollution, and test for potential consequences. However, it should go without saying that things can be overlooked. That appears to be the case concerning pollution from a common diabetic drug, which may now be poisoning fish in Lake Michigan.
Basking in the sunshine may help to slow the onset of obesity and diabetes, according to a new study.
Researchers studying grizzly bears, which are clearly obese animals, have discovered a natural state of diabetes that serves a real biological purpose and is also reversible, according to a new study.
Researchers are claiming that they have determined how to reverse the onset of type 1 diabetes, successfully testing it in experimental animal trials.
For those at serious risk of developing type two diabetes, taking up periodic fasting may significantly reduce risks, researchers suggest.
Nearly 5.5 million Latinas suffer from elevated fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and almost 4 million of those women were never told by a healthcare provider that they were at risk for diabetes, a recent study shows. The data showed that a quarter of the 4 million Latinas studied had not seen a healthcare provider in a year. Coupled with an overall lack of understanding about diabetes, it is imperative that health care providers begin incorporating diabetes screening assessments into most, if not all, health care visits, in order to increase early identification for those at risk for diabetes.
