University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) researchers found increased insulin levels in elderly test subjects, can restore the impaired muscle-building process responsible for age-related physical weakness.
Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis working with diabetic mice have examined in unprecedented detail the immune cells long thought to be responsible for type 1 diabetes.
A new study recently completed by a research team at the University of Central Florida may have found a way to produce an insulin capsule that can mean people with insulin-dependent diabetes will no longer need regular injections.
Ontario will spend $12 million this year and $30 million next year to provide 6,500 children suffering from insulin-dependent diabetes with access to the pumps, which monitor and regulate insulin levels.
