Type 2 diabetes is a condition that develops in the course of a lifetime, usually a result of a bad diet and obesity. But now scientists are investigating the possibility that a predisposition for the disease can be inherited.
Nearly one in five deaths globally can be traced to dietary causes, a study of global nutrition says. Both a lack of food and an abundance of unhealthy food cause dangerous malnutrition.
Washing breakfast down with a cup of coffee before heading to work is one way to avoid Type 2 diabetes, according to two new studies published ahead of World Diabetes Day.
More than 1.4 billion adults across the world have an increased risk of disease because they are not exercising enough, the World Health Organization reports in a new study.
It's a nasty disease, and it can lead to many others. But type 2 diabetes is totally preventable. Just follow a few simple tips and avoid it entirely - without even breaking a sweat.
