Default Insulin resistance cause found & reversed in animal study

A UC San Diego-led team studying chronic inflammation and Type 2 diabetes has discovered that removing the protein galectin-3 from mice can reverse the insulin resistance and glucose intolerance that come with diabetes and obesity.

The team removed galectin-3, or Gal3, from the mice either genetically or by using drugs, according to a statement. They were able to bring insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance to normal levels, even in older mice. While this finding was encouraging for diabetes symptoms, removing the protein did not affect obesity.
