Researchers explain why insulin production decreases in type 2 diabetes

Researchers have shown why insulin secretion may not work properly in people with type 2 diabetes.Insulin resistance, the reduced ability of the body to respond to insulin, is the key characteristic of type 2 diabetes. However, insulin secretion can also be problematic in people with type 2 diabetes.

Researchers from Uppsala and Lund universities have now identified a new factor that can affect insulin, which is produced by beta cells in the pancreas.

For insulin to be released, vesicles (which transport molecules and other fluids through cells) fuse with the cell membrane, and insulin is then ejected into the bloodstream.
