Washington: Researchers have found that the way that the gut `tastes` sweet food differs in type 2 diabetes sufferers, which could lead to problems with glucose uptake.Dr Richard Young, Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in the University of Adelaide`s Nerve-Gut Research Laboratory, says taste buds aren`t the only way the body detects sweetness.He said that when we talk about `sweet taste`, most people think of tasting sweet food on their tongue, but scientists have found that sweet taste receptors are present in a number of sites in the human body.Young said that they`re now just beginning to understand the importance of the sweet taste receptors in the human intestine and what this means for sufferers of type 2 diabetes.
