Type 2 diabetes risk can be eliminated – if you have the right genes

Researchers from the University of Stirling have discovered a new genetic signature in people whose Type 2 diabetes improves following treatment.

The team, including academics from the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport, say it is the first reliable signature for insulin sensitivity in human muscle.

Scientists believe that the findings, which have been published in the journal Nucleic Acids Research, will inform future research by helping understand why not all people are able to eliminate the risk of the condition by changing their lifestyle.

Dr Iain J Gallagher, one of the researchers, said: ‘Our hypothesis was that, with sufficient numbers of well characterised subjects and our new analysis methods, we could reveal a robust signature for what is known as ‘insulin resistance’ – an important precursor for developing Type 2 diabetes.’

‘Importantly, because we could also examine how the activation status of each ‘insulin resistance’ gene responded to treatment, we have also discovered a potential explanation for why not all people eliminate their Type 2 diabetes risk by following a lifestyle and exercise training programme.’

better school lunches, with carb watching. school fitness programs that monitor possible obesity factors. blood sugar testing free of charge for students on a schedule basis.


Definitely reducing the carbs in kids food. High sugar foods cause reactive hypoglycemia, which at very least causes weight gain possibly leading to diabetes later in life.
