I'd like to talk about things you might want to know about diabetes and its complications to people who'd like to know more, to people who are worried as to whether susceptibility to diabetes runs in families, and to people who are currently undergoing treatment. I'd like to introduce some surprising findings made at Osaka University about diabetes and a mysterious role played by fat cells.

How about learning more about body mechanisms and protecting yourself from diabetes?
