Migraines and blood sugar issues share common genetic risk factors


For someone prone to migraines, a missed meal could be a fast-track to an attack. Out-of-balance blood sugar is a well-established trigger for migraines and other types of headaches. Now, a new study adds genetic evidence to back up the connection and could potentially inform future strategies for treating migraines.

By analyzing genomic data from tens of thousands of people, researchers have identified genetic links between migraines and problems with blood sugar regulation. Their findings hint at a shared genetic basis for the conditions, and also point to new migraine-related genes for further study, the team reports in a paper published Feb. 20 in the journal Human Genetics (opens in new tab).
