New research being presented at this year’s European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Annual Meeting in Berlin, Germany (1–5 October), suggests that insulin is often stored at the wrong temperature in patients’ fridges at home, which could affect its potency.

Being overweight or obese may put adults with diabetes at greater risk of dying from cancer than their diabetes-free counterparts, particularly for obesity-related cancers such as those arising from the bowel, kidney, and pancreas in men and women, and from the breast and endometrium (lining of the uterus) in women.

New research from various cities in the world presented at this year's European Congress on Obesity in Vienna, Austria (23-26 May) demonstrate that if current trends continue, almost a quarter (22%) of the people in the world will be obese by 2045 (up from 14% in 2017), and one in eight (12%) will have type 2 diabetes (up from 9% in 2017).

While type 2 diabetes (T2D) was once considered a disease largely confined to older people, the global epidemic of obesity and overweight has seen diagnoses rocket in young adults, adolescents and even appear in young children.

Study shows that the consumption of antioxidant-rich foods is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes

2018-11-30T14:49:46+00:00

A lower risk of type 2 diabetes has been observed among individuals consuming food rich in antioxidants. This effect is largely contributed by fruit, vegetables, tea and other hot beverages, as well as moderate consumption of alcohol, as shown in a recent study from an Inserm research group, published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD)

The UK's first National Health Service (NHS) service to provide a new, non-surgical, reversible weight loss device for people who have both poorly controlled type 2 diabetes and obesity is safe and effective and should be rolled out across the NHS, according to new research being presented at this year's European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Annual Meeting in Lisbon, Portugal (11-15 September).

People who drink 3 to 4 times per week less likely to develop diabetes than those who never drink

Frequent alcohol consumption is associated with a reduced risk of diabetes in both men and women, according to a new study published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes), with alcohol consumption over 3–4 week days giving the lowest risks of diabetes.
