Type 2 diabetes is a worldwide epidemic due to many increasing risk factors such as obesity. New avenues are constantly being explored to find solutions for this impactful disease. Biochemical means are being looked into as a possible solution due to the polypeptide Amylin. An explanation for the connection between Amylin and type 2 diabetes is given, by explaining each separately and then connecting the amyloid fibril formation to type 2 diabetes. The information provided was collected through an extensive literature review.
