A research team at the University of Arizona is looking into the effectiveness of fish oil in both the prevention and reversal of type 2 diabetes . The research is to be assisted by a grant from the Thono O’odham Nation.
The grant is officially awarded to the Steele Children’s Research Center in order to show how fish oil could prevent or delay diabetes. The active substance in fish oil, Omega-3 fatty acids, has been shown to be powerful in some healthcare fields.
Sherman Garver, the associate research professor at the UA department of paediatrics, reportedly commented: “It is well known that Native Americans are genetically susceptible to Type 2 diabetes. Our hope is that the knowledge gained and advances made through this study will benefit all individuals with Type 2 diabetes, and particularly Native Americans.”
The Native American population is particularly susceptible to type 2 diabetes.
