Mothers who gain weight in the years leading up to pregnancy have an increased risk of gestational diabetes. Women gaining more than 2.5 percent of their body weight each year tripled their risk of gestational Diabetes compared to women who maintained a stable weight. this risk doubled for women with a small weight gain (1.5 to 2.5 percent). Even women with small weight gains within the healthy BMI range doubled their risk of gestational diabetes.

Missing signals lead to diabetic nerve injury
Molecules that help cells communicate with each other -- called cytokines -- might be the key to repairing diabetic nerve damage. Diabetes devastates nerve cells, which can lead to poor circulation, muscle weakness, blindness, and other painful side effects. The new study showed diabetic mice can't repair nerve cells after damage due to low levels of specific cytokines.

Molecular biologists discover an active role of membrane lipids in health and disease
Cells produce insulin, for example, or generate antibodies. To perform these functions, cells need to produce large quantities of proteins. For this purpose, these cells activate a program, the unfolded protein response (UPR). Errors in the UPR are thought to play a decisive role in the development of diseases such as diabetes or cancer. A research team has now discovered a previously unknown mechanism that controls activation of the UPR.

Scientists discover how insulin-producing cells show differences in age
Diabetes researchers have puzzled for decades about why insulin-producing beta cells in one pancreatic islet often look and behave quite differently than their counterparts in the same islet or in nearby islets. Using newly identified cellular markers of aging, Joslin Diabetes Center scientists now have shown that this diversity may be driven at least in part by differently aged beta cell populations within the pancreas.

Short-term functional high-intensity training may improve beta-cell function in adults with type 2 diabetes
A new study finds that short, functional-movement and resistance training workouts, called functional high-intensity training (F-HIT), may improve beta-cell function in adults with type 2 diabetes. Beta cells in the pancreas produce, store and secrete insulin, which allows your body to use sugar for energy. The small study is the first one of its kind to analyze beta-cell function in F-HIT or resistance training.

One medical device company, Viacyte, is hoping that they've got a device that can protect a special crop of stem cells so that they can live inside the body and produce enough insulin to mostly cure the condition.

Due to these unique nutritional qualities, eating legumes regularly can help improve human health. In fact, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) declared 2016 as the international year of legumes to raise people's awareness of their nutritional benefits.
