Injectable solution may provide weeks of glucose control
Biomedical engineers have created a biopolymer that can provide weeks of glucose control with a single injection. The new tool has the potential to replace daily or weekly insulin shots with bi-weekly or once-a-month treatments of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP1) for type 2 diabetes.

Whole-body vibration may be as effective as regular exercise
A less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration (WBV) can mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise in mice, according to a new study. WBV consists of a person sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. When the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, and muscles contract and relax multiple times during each second.

Designer worm spit supercharges healing
Globally, every 30 seconds a diabetic has a limb amputated because of a non-healing wound. A molecule produced by a Thai liver parasite could be the solution to those non-healing wounds -- and scientists are now able to produce a version of the molecule on a large enough scale to make it available for laboratory tests and eventually clinical trials

Diabetes drug may work by changing gut bacteria makeup
Scientists from the Gothenburg and Girona universities found that the treatment of type 2 diabetes with metformin is changing the composition and characteristics of the intestinal microbiome. This has a significant auxiliary effect in therapy, establishing a system of regulation of the level of sugar and glycosylated hemoglobin in the blood.
