Cells from gallbladder reprogrammed to produce insulin

Human gallbladder cells have been reengineered to produce insulin by American scientists. The reprogrammed cells behaved similarly to beta cells in a laboratory experiment where researchers were able to create insulin in response to rising blood glucose levels. The technique could offer a future alternative to islet call transplants, where immunosuppressant drugs are required afterwards. However, there are many hurdles that first need to be overcome. One of these is the short lifespan of the ce...

NAFLD could increase risk of damage to other organs

German scientists have demonstrated how non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) may increase the risk of damage to other organs. Having NAFLD is already known to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, chronic liver diseases and cardiovascular diseases. Fatty deposits in the organ appear to affect secretions of liver, resulting in more glucose and unfavourable fats produced. However, it has been unclear which other organs are most affected by NAFLD and what damage this can cause. To find a solut...

The move to combine different algorithms along with insulin pumps and ...

JDRF teams up with technology firm to establish type 1 diabetes risks

Artificial intelligence is being used to try to identify risk factors for type 1 diabetes as part of a new collaboration between computer giants IBM and charity JDRF. The project will involve the international technology company analysing significant volumes of research data through machine learning, a technique where computers find hidden insights without being programmed where to look. IBM will be applying this method to more than three data sets, comparing the research against other data. Au...

Walnuts show beneficial effects on hunger say brain scientists

Eating a good helping of walnuts each day could help to reduce hunger according to a new study. Researchers from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have demonstrated that the nut may help to quell hunger. As a consequence, walnuts appear to be useful in preventing obesity and possibly type 2 diabetes. Consuming them sets off a part of the brain linked to the regulation of hunger and cravings, according to the research published in the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism journal. Dr Olivia M ...
