Association of Combined Healthy Lifestyle Factors With Incident Dementia in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

Background and Objectives: Type 2 diabetes and lifestyle factors have been associated with dementia risk, but the impact of a healthy lifestyle on diabetes-related dementia remains largely unknown. We aimed to investigate whether the increased risk of dementia among individuals with diabetes can be offset by a broad combination of healthy lifestyle factors.Methods: This prospective study utilized …

Inhibition of pancreatic EZH2 restores progenitor insulin in T1D donor

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that selectively destroys insulin-producing β-cells in the pancreas. An unmet need in diabetes management, current therapy is focussed on transplantation. While the reprogramming of progenitor cells into functional insulin-producing β-cells has also been proposed this remains controversial and poorly understood. The challenge is determining why default transcriptional …

Incidence of New-Onset Type 2 Diabetes After Cancer: A Danish Cohort Study

For patients with cancer, prevalent type 2 diabetes at the date of cancer diagnosis is associated with increased cancer-specific and all-cause mortality (1,2). Yet, despite potential health implications, there is limited knowledge on whether cancer is also a risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Moreover, the impact of new-onset type 2 diabetes after cancer diagnosis …

Associations between persistent organic pollutants and type 1 diabetes in youth

BackgroundDiabetes affects millions of people worldwide with a continued increase in incidence occurring within the pediatric population. The potential contribution of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) to diabetes in youth remains poorly known, especially regarding type 1 diabetes (T1D), generally the most prevalent form of diabetes in youth. ObjectivesWe investigated the associations between POPs and T1D …
