A newly discovered hormone may be linked to the development of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. The research study published in the journal Nature analysed the way fabkin hormone functions in the body.
Several hormones such as insulin and leptin are involved in the metabolic process but the functioning of fabkin is slightly different. Fabkin controls the signals sent to the cells and monitors their function. In the case of Diabetes. it regulates the function of beta cells in the pancreas for insulin secretion. The hormone was found to be released by the fat cells of the body and it
modifies the functioning of energy units of the body. Fabkin was found to be a driving force of Diabetes in mice. When it was inhibited. high blood sugar levels were controlled in both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes mice. Further research is being conducted to explore its role in Diabetes and possible treatment options in the future.
