Research marks World Diabetes Day

Mon, 16 Nov 2009
Researchers in the UK are investigating the cause of diabetes and marked World Diabetes Day last Saturday. The team at University of the Highlands and Islands have been running a series of clinical trials at a laboratory in Inverness.

Two separate diabetes research projects are underway. Diabetes researchers are trying to better understand how eating oatcakes, muesli and porridge can help people with type 2 diabetes to treat their condition.

The second project examines how gluten -rich food could trigger schizophrenia, and the link between this and diabetes . Tissue in the bodies of sufferers who could not handle gluten were found to be damaged. The researchers are hoping to find out further links between the two diseases.
