New hope for type-two diabetes

Diabetes testing

WTNH– There may be a new hope for the fight against type-two diabetes.

A study of 150,000 people has found a rare mutation that could actually help protect against the disease.

Two drug companies are working on a drug that will actually mimic the drug mutation.

However more research is needed to understand exactly how the mutation lowers the risk of type two diabetes.
