Type 2 diabetes, obesity cure may be found in single injection: study

A single injection could be the answer for patients suffering from debilitating conditions such as obesity and diabetes, new research has revealed.

It’s all thanks to a hormone, known as FGF21, which helped mice in the study to lose weight and also become more sensitive to insulin.

It’s believed the animals lost weight as a result of the hormone boosting their energy levels. F2F21 raises the body temperature, which also helps to burn more calories. The increased insulin sensitivity that the mice developed is also important as insulin resistance is a precursor to the development of type 2 diabetes.
