The true cause of type 2??

Obesity doesn’t necessarily cause type 2…actually it’s inflammation.  A new article describing interesting research into the causes of type 2 diabetes.  If it weren’t for lack of time, I’d write more – so here’s the intro for the actual article:

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7 (UPI) — A U.S. study has determined inflammation — and not obesity — initiates insulin resistance that is the major cause of Type 2 diabetes.

University of California-San Diego School of Medicine researchers discovered inflammation provoked by immune cells called macrophages leads to insulin resistance. The scientists said that discovery might lead to new drug therapies to fight the disease, the most prevalent metabolic disease in the world.

  1. When someone writes an post he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
    Therefore that’s why this post is great. Thanks!

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
