It has been increasingly accepted that chronic subacute inflammation plays an important role in the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes in animals and humans. Particularly supporting this is that suppression of systemic inflammation in type 2 diabetes improves glycemic control; this also points to a new potential therapeutic target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Recent studies strongly suggest that obesity-induced inflammation is mainly mediated by tissue resident… CONTINUE READING
