Health Research: Prevent type 2 diabetes blood-sugar spikes ♦ How obesity causes disease ♦ Young adults born preterm may live with lungs of elderly

Prevent type 2 diabetes blood-sugar spikes by eating more protein for breakfast, Individuals with type 2 diabetes have difficulty regulating their glucose -- or blood sugar -- levels, particularly after meals. Now, researchers have found that type 2 diabetics can eat more protein at breakfast to help reduce glucose spikes at both breakfast and lunch.
