Fight diabetes with exercise

03-Dec-2019

A common advice by GPs to patients diagnosed with prediabetes is to perform light exercise. Often this slows down or even stops the progression to type 2 diabetes. But not every patient reacts positively to exercise. A study led by Gianni Panagiotou, a computational biologist from Jena, focussed ...

Deciphering how the brain controls our weight

Jens Brüning receives 2019 Heinrich Wieland Prize

12-Nov-2019

Professor Jens Brüning, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research in Cologne, Germany, has been honoured with the 2019 Heinrich Wieland Prize for his pioneering work on how the brain regulates the uptake, storage, and use of energy in the body. He has shown that certain brain ...

What and how much we eat might change our internal clocks and hormone responses

08-Nov-2019

For the first time, a study led by researchers at Helmholtz Zentrum München and the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD) shows how glucocorticoid hormones, such as cortisol, control sugar and fat levels differently during day and night, feeding and fasting, rest and activity, over the course ...

The best of both worlds: a designer molecule to combat type 2 diabetes

30-Sep-2019

A team of scientists from Kiel and Melbourne have developed a new protein from two naturally occurring proteins, which has proven very effective against type 2 diabetes in laboratory experiments. Scientists led by Professor Stefan Rose-John, a biochemist at Kiel University (CAU) and member of the ...

Cell recycling to fight atherosclerosis

02-Jul-2019

Calcium deposits in the abdominal and leg arteries – so-called media calcification – are a frequent complication of kidney failure or diabetes mellitus. With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, researchers explored how cell cultures and mice react to inadequate blood purification and ...

Skipping Meat on Occasion May Protect Against Type 2 Diabetes

27-Jun-2019

People who eat less live longer and healthier lives – many studies point out the positive effect of (intermittent) fasting. However, besides calorie reduction, the quantitative relationship of the individual food components also plays an important role. Scientists at DIfE, a partner of the German ...

How the body protects itself from type 2 diabetes

Researchers discover a key role of the protein HPGD

25-Apr-2019

A specific group of white blood cells, termed "regulatory T cells", keeps the immune system in balance and suppresses its activity to protect the body against autoimmune diseases. Scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University of Bonn have now discovered ...

How Type 1 Diabetes Gradually Destroys Insulin Production

04-Feb-2019

Using the new Imaging Mass Cytometry method, Zurich researchers have investigated the pancreas of healthy organ donors and those with type 1 diabetes. The study shows that many beta cells, which normally produce insulin, are still present in the early stages of the disease, but look very ...

The EU research project EDCMET is investigating the effect of endocrine disruptors on metabolism

28-Jan-2019

January 2019 saw the launch of the EU research project EDCMET, in which scientists from the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) are also involved. EDCMET stands for "Metabolic effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals: novel testing METhods and adverse outcome path-ways" and is ...

Deciphering diabetes with "game-changing" human blood vessels from stem cells

18-Jan-2019

Changes in blood vessels are the major cause of death and morbidity in diabetes. For the first time, scientists managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish. This breakthrough engineering technology dramatically advances research of vascular dysfunction in diseases ...
