Study: New treatment option for diabetics taking insulin

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A recent study says that there is a new way to treat diabetics who are taking insulin.

Right now, people with Type 2 Diabetes taking insulin are sometimes told to wait before eating. But a new study from Germany says that’s not necessary.

It looked at a group of nearly 100 diabetics and found blood sugar levels remained steady regardless of whether or not participants took a 20 or 30 minute break fromĀ  eating a meal.

There’s a warning — don’t assume the research applies to people with Type 1 Diabetes.
