Discovery of Insulin Switches in Pancreas Could Lead to New Diabetes Drugs

ScienceDaily (Sep. 26, 2011) Researchers at the Salk Institute have discovered how a hormone turns on a series of molecular switches inside the pancreas that increases production of insulin.

The finding, published September 26 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, raises the possibility that new designer drugs might be able to turn on key molecules in this pathway to help the 80 million Americans who have type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetic insulin resistance.

The molecular switches command pancreatic beta islet cells, the cells responsible for insulin, to grow and multiply. Tweaking these cells might offer a solution to type 1 diabetes, the form of diabetes caused by destruction of islet cells, and to type II diabetes, the form caused by insulin resistance......

Or you could just stop eating sugar and starch.
What's so hard about that? And all the millions you spend on research can help poor people instead of letting people ruin their health and continue living.
