Subject: Fat discovery could ease inflammation for diabetics
It turns out that fat discovery could ease inflammation for diabetics. Inflammation is a reason many diabetic people experience things like heart attacks and strokes. A possible trigger has been identified though. Over the last 20 years the amount of people with diabetes has gotten very high. There is progress being made to help these people.
- Researchers discovered that when certain immune cells can’t manufacture fat, the mice don’t develop diabetes and inflammation, even when consuming a high-fat diet.
- By blocking the production of fat inside these cells, it may be possible to prevent inflammation in people with diabetes and even in other conditions, such as arthritis and cancer.
- Eliminating inflammation altogether is not the answer to preventing diabetic complications because inflammation is also vital for clearing infectious pathogens from the body and helps wounds heal.
"The researchers also plan to take a look at existing drug compounds that change the lipid composition in cells."
