High plasma triglycerides have been linked to heart disease; studies in mice suggest inhibiting gamma secretase in the liver could lower plasma triglyceride levels and have parallel benefits for diabetes.
In obese mice, the liver increases production of an enzyme, DPP4, that promotes diabetes by increasing inflammation in abdominal fat.
2017 Naomi Berrie Award winner Bradford B. Lowell, MD, PhD, is an innovator in creating cutting-edge genetic engineering and neuroscience techniques to study energy balance and obesity.
Researchers may have found a way to treat insulin resistance, a precursor to type 2 diabetes, while avoiding side effects such as weight gain.
Researchers have developed a skin patch that can turn white fat into energy-burning brown fat locally while raising the body’s metabolism.
Two 20-somethings, Berrie Center patient Emily Goldman and her "diabestie" Christie Leist, share their trials and tribulations of living with T1D.
