This animation describes the process of inflammation in type 2 diabetes via a unique structure called the inflammasome.
Over time, this process damages the pancreas, eventually leading to decreased insulin secretion and inability to control blood glucose levels. Chronic inflammatory 'lifestyle diseases' such as T2D are rapidly increasing in the western world and will pose a huge health burden in future.
