A reason why diabetics suffer from inflammation has been verified. Through research on mice, Washington University has discovered that if there is a lack of fat in a cell, that particular cell cannot produce any fat. While inflammation does not need to be completely prevented, this discovery could provide new methods of dealing with excess inflammation in diabetics.
- Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications.
- Too much fat in the diet promotes insulin resistance by spurring chronic inflammation.
- Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have developed a way to block production of fatty acids in these immune cells in mice and protect them from diet-induced diabetes.
