New look identifies important clumping of diabetes
Diabetes can be really problematic issue. It is emerging like ever growing disease within the society. Scientists are working on to find a full fledged solution for the patients. According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that small clumps of miss-folding proteins in the middle of the plaque formation process. The People get type2 diabetes. It can be identified easily with the help of this lump.
Martin Zanni, a UW–Madison chemistry professor, explains further, “All mammals make this same protein called amylin, and it only differs a little bit from species to species. The mammals that can get type 2 diabetes, their amylin proteins aggregate in the pancreas into plaque that kills the cells around them. As a result, you can't make insulin.”
According to the scientist it is that without insulin, hungry cells can’t tap sugar in the bloodstream for energy, and high blood sugar levels cause type 2 diabetes.
