Summary from a very large CDC study on diabetes. Longer life-spans are definitely complicating the picture.

"The ongoing diabetes and obesity epidemics have combined with ever-increasing human lifespans to increase lifetime risk of type 2 diabetes to about 40 percent for both men and women, said lead study author Edward Gregg, chief of the epidemiology and statistics branch in the division of diabetes translation at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention"

Totally agreed, @jackie_g. Definitely share this research with your colleagues.

  • Give Us Your Feedback on Standards for Preprints, and Other Interim Research Products October 11, 2016
    Many scientific disciplines, like physics and mathematics, routinely communicate research findings through preprints -- manuscripts that have not yet gone through the formal peer review, editing, or journal publishing process. However, this is still a relatively novel concept in biology and clinical research. .... we at NIH are interested in feedback from you, to get […]
  • Improving Visibility of NIH-supported Clinical Trial Activities and Results September 16, 2016
    In a separate post today, we provide an overview of the various reforms the NIH is leading to enhance our stewardship of clinical trials. In this post we’d like to focus a bit more on our efforts to broadly disseminate clinical trial availability and results information. Timely dissemination of clinical trial results information has been […]
  • Building Better Clinical Trials through Stewardship and Transparency September 16, 2016
    NIH is the largest public funder of clinical trials in the United States. As stewards of this research enterprise, we have been actively listening and discussing how to overcome hurdles and shortcomings that we, and others in the research community, have identified. If you’ve been following the conversation, you’ll know that NIH already has implemented […]
  • Measuring Impact of NIH-supported Publications with a New Metric: the Relative Citation Ratio September 8, 2016
    In previous blogs, we talked about citation measures as one metric for scientific productivity. Raw citation counts are inherently problematic – different fields cite at different rates, and citation counts rise and fall in the months to years after a publication appears. Therefore, a number of bibliometric scholars have focused on developing methods that measure […]
  • NRSA Postdoctoral Stipend Guidelines for FY2017 August 30, 2016
    This month, NIH published the projected fiscal year 2017 stipend guidelines for postdoctoral trainees and fellows supported by National Research Service Awards (NRSAs). For NRSA-supported postdocs with less than one year’s experience, the stipend level will increase to $47,484. In keeping with the recommendation of the Biomedical Research Workforce Working Group of the NIH Advisory […]
