Biologists discovered that a main protein used to regulate the biological clocks of mammals can also regulate glucose production in the liver.
Changing the levels of this protein can improve the health of mice with diabetes .
This discovery could offer a new biochemical approach for scientists to develop obesity and Type 2 diabetes treatments .
It also raises the question whether a proportion of diabetes within the western world is due to sleep disturbances as a result of our busy lifestyles.
It is a fact that mice that do not have biological clocks are prone to develop diabetes and obesity .
Further research into this would enable improved treatment and control of Type 2 diabetes and obesity.
