Diabetes in the News

November is National Diabetes month in the United States.

Diabetes in the United States rose by about 6 percent in 1999 in what the government called dramatic evidence of an unfolding epidemic.

Diabetes Epidemic

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has declared diabetes an emerging epidemic, and the number of diabetics in the U.S. is expected to rise to 22 million by the year 2025.

Diabetes Studies

Adult-onset diabetes. A study conducted at the Vrije University in Amsterdam found that people who have experienced at least three life-changing events, like the death of a spouse or a financial crisis, were 60 percent more likely to have type II diabetes than their less-stressed counterparts.

Researchers reported in the January issue of The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism that older women with diabetes have an increased risk of fractures compared with those with non diabetic women.

Not getting enough sleep may increase your risk for Diabetes. Researchers from the University of Chicago found that adults who slept less than 6.5 hours a night were 40% less responsive to insulin.

Despite some concerns over the effect type 1 diabetes might have on the brain, new research shows that the condition does not appear to hinder children's school performance. In the new study, researchers at the University of Iowa in Iowa City found that children with type 1 diabetes performed as well as--and sometimes better than--their siblings and classmates on standardized academic tests. Their grades in math and reading were also comparable.

A Link Between Smoking and Diabetes
  
Swedish researchers reported in the January issue of the British Medical Journal announce that pregnant women should not smoke because smoking can significantly increase the risk to their children of developing diabetes as adult

The team reported that adults whose mothers had smoked 10 or more cigarettes per week during pregnancy were at least four times as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes as those whose mothers had not smoked. The researchers speculated that exposure to smoke in the uterus may result in "lifelong metabolic dysregulation," possibly due to fetal malnutrition or toxicity of the smoke.
