Diabetes

Diabetes is a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal published since 1952 by the American Diabetes Association. It covers research about the physiology and pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus including any aspect of laboratory, animal or human research. Emphasis is on investigative reports focusing on areas such as the pathogenesis of diabetes and its complications, normal and pathologic pancreatic islet function and intermediary metabolism, pharmacological mechanisms of drug and hormone action, and biochemical and molecular aspects of normal and abnormal biological processes. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2010 impact factor of 8.889, ranking it 5th out of 116 journals in the category "Endocrinology & Metabolism".

Newly discovered disease opens for future diabetes treatment

Knowledge of a newly discovered genetic disorder, which means that a person cannot produce the protein TXNIP (thioredoxin interacting protein) in their cells, can open for the development of new diabetes drugs. This is shown ...

Researchers discover key protein in the production of insulin

The crucial hormone insulin needs help acquiring the right structure. A protein that assists in the process of insulin folding has just been discovered in a new study conducted by researchers at the Department of Biomedical ...

Engineered hot fat implants reduce weight gain in mice

Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a novel way to engineer the growth and expansion of energy-burning "good" fat, and then found that this fat helped reduce weight gain and lower blood glucose ...

Exercise-induced capillary density ups insulin sensitivity

(HealthDay)—Exercise training is associated with an increase in skeletal muscle capillary density (CD), which contributes to improvements in glucose metabolism, according to a study published online June 11 in Diabetes.

TXNIP may mediate insulin sensitivity in caloric restriction

(HealthDay)—Caloric restriction (CR) improves peripheral insulin sensitivity, possibly by lowering insulin-stimulated thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP) levels and enhancing non-oxidative glucose disposal, according ...

Researchers link liver disease and drug metabolism

Researchers at the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy have discovered that nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), an increasingly common but often undiagnosed liver disease, could have significant medical implications ...
