Trial suggests way to personalize heart health in diabetes

http://ift.tt/2AiPJJe People with diabetes and high risk of CVD who achieved extremely tight glycemic control showed higher risks of fatal heart attacks, a new study has found. Now scientists have identified two genetic variants associated with a threefold increase in CVD in this group. This discovery could lead to easy identification of individuals at risk and treatment using currently approved medications.

Type 2 diabetes: It all starts in the liver

http://ift.tt/2BvdCew Among the detrimental effects of obesity is the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. If the strong links between obesity and type 2 diabetes are well known, the cellular and molecular mechanisms were so far poorly understood. Scientists unravel the factors linking obesity and insulin resistance. By deciphering how the protein PTPR-? inhibits insulin receptors located at the surface of liver cells, they open door to potential news therapeutic strategies.
