Wising Up to Diabetes

Insulin activity in brain and liver collaborate to prevent the metabolic disease

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Slide over, fat. Move back, muscle. The brain and liver mastermind the regulation of blood sugar, according to new work. The study shows that stimulating the insulin receptor only in these organs spares mice from diabetes, a finding that could help researchers devise new drugs to rein in blood sugar.
