Washington- A new research has found that a peptide produced by the human body could help in treating diabetes.

The recently discovered human peptide, called humanin, could lead to powerful new treatments for people living with diabetes as it helps in increasing the metabolism of glucose in beta cells, which in turn markedly increases insulin secretion.

Radhika Muzumdar, M.D., study author from the Departments of Pediatrics and Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine said that humanin could be a potential weapon to fight against this global problem which is expected to affect more than 500 million people in the next two decades.

The research also found that this human peptide may also benefit patients with other conditions like stroke, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Muzumdar added that this promising compound could have a dramatic effect on public health throughout the world.

The research was published in the December 2013 issue of The FASEB Journal .
