TYPE 2 DIABETES MORE COMMON AMONG LOW-INCOME FAMILIES




Being born into a low-income family may mean worse health later in life. Research has shown that those with low incomes are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than their richer peers, but the reason for this link has remained unclear. Now, a new study finds that inflammation may be the key behind this connection, and that genetics plays a role. "We've shown that there might be a link going from socioeconomic status to inflammation, through gene regulation, and that finally leads to increased risk of diabetes," said lead author Silvia Stringhini, of the University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland.
