Genetic study backs role for liver fat, pancreatic volume in type 2 diabetes risk

A genetic propensity for increased liver fat and lower pancreatic volume is associated with an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, say researchers.

Autoantibody variation at seroconversion may indicate future diabetes risk in children

Children at increased genetic risk for type 1 diabetes are more likely to develop the condition if they have multiple, rather than single, islet autoantibodies present at the time of seroconversion, a combined analysis of prospective cohorts shows.

Repeat courses of intensive insulin do not ‘reset the clock’ in type 2 diabetes

A recurring brief intensive course of insulin every 3 months does not build on metabolic improvements gained from an induction course in people with type 2 diabetes of relatively short duration, say researchers.

Type 1 diabetes identified in earliest weeks of life

Researchers have identified infants as young as 3 months with probable type 1 diabetes, raising the possibility that the disease process could in some cases begin before birth.

LADA beta-cell function shows ‘biphasic’ decline

Reductions in the function of islet beta cells within the pancreas occur in two distinct phases among individuals with latent autoimmune diabetes of adulthood (LADA), Chinese researchers report.

Type 1 diabetes endotypes firmed up

Researchers provide further evidence to support two distinct type 1 diabetes endotypes characterized by a more or less aggressive autoimmune response and a younger or older age at onset.

Excess weight may hasten type 1 diabetes progression in lower-risk children

A high BMI may contribute to the risk for progressing from single to multiple islet autoantibodies, especially in children who would otherwise be at relatively low risk, show findings from TrialNet.

Genetic study supports causal effect of resting heart rate on type 2 diabetes risk

Researchers have used Mendelian randomization analysis to demonstrate a shared etiology between resting heart rate and the risk for type 2 diabetes.
