A recent study finds that targeting a specific protein within the fat cells of mice reverses type 2 diabetes. The results also show that the protein can prevent the disease from developing.

Since the 1980s, the global prevalence of diabetes has almost quadrupled. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, around 1 in 10 people have type 2 diabetes (T2D), the most common form of diabetes. A further 1 in 3 people has prediabetes — higher-than-normal blood sugar levels that increase the risk of T2D. The steady rise in levels of T2D is largely due to the increase in obesity rates: Obesity is one of the primary risk factors for diabetes.

Insulin is a hormone that regulates the levels of sugar in the blood. In T2D, the body either does not respond to the hormone, or it does not produce enough of it. Although medications and lifestyle changes can help to manage insulin levels and control diabetes, there is no cure, and researchers are keen to find better interventions. Read more HERE.
