Type 1 diabetes, a chronic condition affecting millions of young individuals globally, is not exclusive to childhood. As many as half of all cases are diagnosed during adulthood, and there is a need to understand the factors contributing to the development of type 1 diabetes in adults.

A new study at Karolinska Institutet now provides new insights into the development of the disease in adults. The results are presented in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.

The research, conducted at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, was based on data from more than 2.8 million individuals, and the aim was to compare the heritability of type 1 in adults and children. The findings indicate that having a first-degree relative with the condition significantly increases the risk of developing type 1 diabetes as an adult, and the risk is higher if the relative developed diabetes early. Overall, heritability is lower for type 1 diabetes in adults than children.

Yuxia Wei, Ph.D. student at the Institute of Environmental Medicine and first author, notes, “Our study provides new insights on the causes of type 1 diabetes in adults. The lower in adults suggests that environmental factors play a larger role for disease development in adults than children.”

The study underscores the need for further research to identify contributing to adult-onset type 1 diabetes. “Understanding these factors is crucial for developing targeted interventions to prevent the disease’s development,” says Sofia Carlsson, senior lecturer at the Institute of Environmental Medicine.

Fractyl Health, Inc.

Data provides first demonstration of glucose lowering and weight loss potency from pancreas-produced native human GLP-1, highlighting the capacity of pancreatic GLP-1 to provide metabolic control.

The human GLP-1 transgene sequence used in RJVA-001 was administered to eight-week-old db/db mice with established disease and resulted in up to 50% blood sugar lowering and 11% weight loss vs vehicle at four weeks after a single administration, compared to 32% glucose lowering and 2% weight loss vs vehicle with chronic semaglutide.

These results with a native, short half-life human GLP-1 sequence to be used in RJVA-001 build upon earlier results with a prototype transgene GLP-1 analogue.

BURLINGTON, Mass., March 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fractyl Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GUTS) (the “Company”), a metabolic therapeutics company focused on pioneering new approaches for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D), today announced promising new preclinical findings for the first clinical candidate in its Rejuva® pancreatic gene therapy platform. RJVA-001 is the Company’s first GLP-1 gene therapy candidate to emerge from the platform, setting the stage for a potentially transformative approach to treating metabolic diseases, including obesity and T2D.

“As we advance our Rejuva program through preclinical development, we now observe that a single-dose administration of a human GLP-1 transgene (as in RJVA-001) can achieve durable lowering of blood sugar and body weight compared to vehicle or chronic semaglutide administration in the well-validated db/db mouse model of diabetes,” said Dr. Timothy Kieffer, Fractyl Health Chief Scientific Officer. “With these data, we are one step closer to IND enablement for RJVA-001 as part of our broader preclinical development package.”

These results show that the human GLP-1 coding sequence of RJVA-001 demonstrates potency on both glucose lowering and weight loss in db/db mice, the standard rodent T2D efficacy model used for clinical development. The Company has reached alignment with European regulators on the use of this efficacy model to support the submission of a Clinical Trial Application (CTA) in Europe.

“While there are clear benefits of GLP-1 for weight loss, glucose control, and metabolic health in general, there remains a need for advances in care that can offer a major step forward in GLP-1 therapy,” said Dr. Harith Rajagopalan, CEO of Fractyl Health. “Our goal with RJVA-001 is to change the trajectory of both obesity and T2D with a single administration therapy that offers the potential for the durable remission of metabolic disease.”

Fractyl Health anticipates progressing RJVA-001 through IND-enabling toxicity studies in 2024 and initiating First-in-Human clinical studies in 2025.

Certain people with Type 2 diabetes can now donate a kidney. A Mayo Clinic nephrologist explains – Post Bulletin

Diabetes News


ROCHESTER — A change in federal guidelines for living organ donation opens the door for people with well-controlled Type 2 diabetes to become kidney donors.

“I think this is a very significant shift in the eligibility criteria for living kidney donation in the U.S.,” said Dr. Naim Issa, a transplant nephrologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, the county’s second-largest living organ donor center. “In Europe, actually, diabetes was not completely (a) contraindication to donate a kidney.”

Before the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network updated its policies in 2022, a potential living kidney donor would be disqualified if they were diagnosed with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

“Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, can lead to complications affecting our vital organs, especially the kidneys, the eyes, the heart,” Issa said. “And diabetes, in fact, is the leading cause of kidney disease in the U.S.”

But now, people with Type 2 diabetes could become kidney donors if they meet certain critera. (Type 1 diabetes is still excluded.)

Through Mayo Clinic, a potential kidney donor would be eligible if they don’t use insulin, are not overweight, don’t have a family history of kidney disease and go through a health assessment. Right now, those donors would also need to be at least 60 years old, Issa said.

“If you’re young with Type 2 diabetes … (you’ll) have another 20, 30 years to live, and we don’t know what will happen to their kidney function and to their vital organs,” Issa said.

Additionally, potential donors between the ages of 60 and 64 would need to not be on any medications for their diabetes. But, at age 65 and older, they can be taking up to two oral medications and still be eligible, according to the Mayo Clinic guidelines.

While Issa said he only expects a “handful” of living kidney donations per year from donors who meet the Type 2 diabetes critera, he said this type of donation can be helpful in certain situations, such as when a person wants to donate a kidney to their spouse.

“If a wife needs a kidney, they don’t have any potential donors, instead of staying on the waiting list for five to seven years,” Issa said, “Let’s say the husband is diabetic, but very well-controlled. (He’s) lean, maybe takes one medication, older than 65 and the diabetes did not affect any of the vital organs, the heart, the kidneys or the eyes.”

The expanded critera for living kidney donation comes at a time when, Issa said, the need for kidney transplants is increasing and the wait time for kidneys from deceased donors can last years for some patients.

“People are getting older, more diabetes and more obesity causing more and more kidney disease in this country — we have more than 90,000 people waiting for a kidney transplant,” Issa said. “This is mainly to address the increasing demand fo rkidneys and provide some people with a better chance for successful transplant and, of course, improve quality of life.”

Deceased donors with diabetes have been able to donate kidneys, Issa said, if their organs weren’t substantially harmed by their diabetes.

Analysis of Hematological Parameters in Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Patients

Diabetes News


The following is a summary of “Changes in selected hematological parameters in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis,” published in the February 2024 issue of Hematology by Bambo et al.

Researchers conducted a retrospective study to uncover pooled mean differences in white and red blood cell parameters among diabetic patients, aiming to shed light on potential hematological imbalances in type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Using appropriate entry terms, they extensively searched articles in various bibliographic databases, including PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus, Web of Science, PsycINFO, Embase, online archives, and university repositories. Relevant studies were identified based on eligibility criteria. Data, including author details, study characteristics, diabetes type, sample size, and hematological parameter means with SD, were extracted in Excel and analyzed in Stata 11. Pooled standardized mean difference (SMD) was determined with a random effects model, assessing heterogeneity using Higgins’ I2 statistics. Egger’s test and funnel plot analysis evaluated bias. A sensitivity analysis assessed the impact of small studies.

The results showed 39,222 articles following methodology screening, 22 articles with 14,041 participants (6,146 T2DM, 416 T1DM patients, and 7,479 HCs). Pooled SMD in TLC were 0.66, 109 for T2DM and -0.21 for T1DM. Absolute differential WBC counts in T2DM showed differences of 0.84 (neutrophils), -1.59 (eosinophils), 3.20 (basophils), 0.36 (lymphocytes), and 0.26 (monocytes). Relative differential counts in T2DM were neutrophils (1.31%), eosinophils (-0.99%), basophils (0.34%), lymphocytes (-0.19%), and monocytes (-0.64%). In T1DM, SMD of WBC  109 parameters were neutrophils (-0.10), lymphocytes (-0.69), monocytes (0.19), and basophils (-0.32). Pooled SMD in RBC parameters for T2DM were: RBC (-0.57, 106/μL), Hb (-0.73 g/dL), and HCT (-1.22%). In T1DM, RBC, Hb, and HCT were -1.23 (106/μL), -0.80 g/dL, and -0.29%, respectively.

They concluded that T2DM showed elevated white & specific cell types, while T1DM had decreased white & red blood cell parameters, highlighting diabetes’ impact on blood composition.

‘I’m a diabetes doctor – these five exercises could keep blood sugar levels in check’

Diabetes News


Diabetes raises the spectre of dangerous complications posed by high levels of sugar in your blood.

Fortunately, lifestyle changes, including exercise, are some of the best weapons you can add to your arsenal of protection against dangerously high blood sugar levels.

Physical activity not only lowers your blood glucose levels, but it also boosts your body’s sensitivity to insulin, countering insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance occurs when your body’s cells don’t respond properly to insulin, leading to high blood sugar levels. However, exercise could make you more insulin sensitive, helping to manage high blood sugar levels more effectively.

Fortunately, a diabetes doctor has outlined the five best exercises for diabetics.


One of the most common exercises in the world, walking can be easily done anywhere you go.

An endocrine specialist, known on TikTok as The Voice of Diabetes, said: “What I recommend is about 30 minutes of brisk walking five times a week.”

2.Tai Chi

This Chinese martial arts practice is surprisingly good for lowering blood sugar levels, according to the diabetes specialist. She added: “It also helps your mental health. It helps people calm down. It involves a lot of slow different movements so Tai Chi is a great option.”


This popular exercise has been proven to lower blood sugar levels, making a “great option” for diabetics.


You might not associate dancing with exercise, but this fun physical movement could also benefit diabetics. The expert said: “Dancing is also good to lower blood sugar levels. And believe it or not, it actually helps your mental health.

“It can also reduce anxiety and depression. So I mean we could all benefit from some dancing.


Swimming is another “wonderful option” for diabetics. The expert shared it can also stretch your muscles and joints.

The expert said: “It puts no strain on your joint muscles, so you don’t have to worry about knee replacement with swimming.”

Diabetes risk is noticeable in young Samoan children

Diabetes News
Measuring Blood sugar


Obesity is a serious problem worldwide, with over 4 million deaths yearly due to being overweight or obese. Even children are affected, with rates increasing dramatically since 1975. Nicola Hawley, from Yale, studies how obesity affects maternal and child health. She and her colleague, Courtney Choy, have been studying obesity in Samoa for almost ten years, focusing on child health in the Pacific.

A new study by Choy and Hawley revealed a significant rise in overweight or obese Samoan children, doubling from 16% to 36% between 2015 and 2020. In their latest research, published in Pediatric Obesity, they found alarming rates of diabetes and high blood pressure in children as young as 6 to 9 years old. About one in ten children showed signs of prediabetes. However, specific early growth patterns could predict these health issues, aiding clinicians in identifying children who may require intervention.

Choy, the study’s lead author, said, “Those worrisome levels in and of themselves motivate us to continue our work and better understand the state of obesity, diabetes, and hypertension in Samoa.”

Obesity is one part of malnutrition, with underweight and micronutrient deficiencies being the other, says WHO. Factors like imported, low-nutrient foods, and rising costs of local produce contribute to obesity in Samoa. Modernization has led to less active lifestyles and poorer diets.

Only a tiny percentage of women maintain a healthy weight in Samoa. Hawley and Choy’s study is the first to assess childhood heart and metabolic risks in a nation with high adult obesity rates. Their long-term study could help pinpoint the best times and methods for interventions against adult diseases.

The study began nine years ago with Samoa’s Ministry of Health, the Bureau of Statistics, and the Ministry of Women, Community, and Social Development. Choy, initially a YSPH student, recruited participants during her summer MPH internship with Samoa’s Ministry of Health. She continued the project with a Fulbright fellowship and later as a PhD at Brown University, funded by the NIH. An NIH K99 grant now supports Choy’s research. Her focus on Pacific health stems from her upbringing in Hawai’i.

Choy and Hawley, both at Yale, met early on. Hawley admires Choy’s determination and transition from student to independent investigator. They share a passion for improving health in Samoa.

Hawley and Choy’s study in Samoa examines how social and cultural factors affect children’s well-being. They aim to develop interventions by understanding what works best at different ages and how to prevent adult diseases.

After collecting data, Choy shares findings with village participants and engages children by involving them in the process. Next, they plan to gather participants’ input to address risk factors related to obesity, diabetes, and other health issues, ensuring children can achieve their aspirations.

Hawley and Choy’s study gives valuable insights into childhood well-being in Samoa. By understanding the social and cultural context, they aim to develop effective interventions to promote health and prevent diseases in children, thus enabling them to realize their dreams.

Two-Step Screening Uncovers Heart Failure Risk in Diabetes

Diabetes News



A two-step screening, using a risk score and biomarkers, can identify patients with diabetes at a higher risk for heart failure who will most likely benefit from preventive drugs.


  • Researchers compared screening methods and downstream risk for heart failure in 5 years, particularly those without atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD).
  • They pooled data from 4889 patients (age ≥ 40 years, about half women) with diabetes, no heart failure at baseline, and no signs of ASCVD. All patients had undergone screening to determine their heart failure risk level.
  • Researchers assessed the heart failure risk for patients without ASCVD with one-step screening strategies:
  • They next assessed a sequential two-step strategy, using the second test only for those deemed low risk by the first, with a combination of two tests (WATCH-DM/NT-proBNP, NT-proBNP/hs-cTn, or NT-proBNP/echocardiography), the second used for those deemed low-risk by the first test.
  • The primary outcome was incident heart failure during the 5-year follow-up. The researchers also assessed the cost-effectiveness of screening and subsequent treatment of high-risk patients with a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor.


  • Overall, 301 (6.2%) heart failure events occurred among participants without ASCVD.
  • Of the heart failure events, 53%-71% occurred among participants deemed high risk by a one-step screening strategy, but 75%-89% occurred among patients assessed as high risk in two steps.
  • The risk for incident heart failure was 3.0- to 3.6-fold higher in the high- vs low-risk group identified using a two-step screening approach.
  • Among the two-step strategies, the WATCH-DM score first, followed by selective NT-proBNP testing for patients deemed low risk by the first test, was the most efficient, with the fewest tests and lowest screening cost.


“Matching effective but expensive preventive therapies to the highest-risk individuals who are most likely to benefit would be an efficient and cost-effective strategy for heart failure prevention,” the authors wrote.


The study led by Kershaw Patel of the Houston Methodist Academic Institute, Houston, Texas, was published online in Circulation.


The study findings may not be generalized, as the study included older adults with a high burden of comorbidities. This study may have missed some individuals with diabetes by defining it with fasting plasma glucose, which was consistently available across cohort studies, instead of with the limited A1c data. Moreover, the screening strategies used did not consider other important prognostic factors, such as diabetes duration and socioeconomic status.


Two authors declared receiving research support from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Several authors disclosed financial relationships with multiple pharmaceutical device and medical publishing companies in the form of receiving personal fees; serving in various capacities such as consultants, members of advisory boards, steering committees, or executive committees; and other ties.
