Existing medication may reverse symptoms of type 1 diabetes
A medication that has long been used as a vaccination against tuberculosis and a treatment for bladder cancer may alleviate symptoms of type 1 diabetes, according to results from a clinical trial, which were presented recently at a meeting of the American Diabetes Association.
Young people with type 1 diabetes show signs of cardiovascular risk factors
Despite advancements in the treatment and care of individuals with type 1 diabetes, a new study out of Cincinnati Children's Hospital has found that young people with the condition are at a considerably higher risk of developing heart disease at a young age.
Life expectancy increases for individuals with type 1 diabetes
Individuals with type 1 diabetes are living longer than ever. In fact, the life expectancy of diabetics is increasing at rates faster than those seen in the general population, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Pittsburgh.
Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes grow in prevalence
The number people in the world with either type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes has more than doubled over the last three decades, according to a new paper from an international group of researchers.
Type 2 diabetes medication could be useful in controlling blood sugar of type 1 diabetics
In addition to treating the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, the medication liraglutide could help individuals with type 1 diabetes control their blood sugar levels, according to a new study out of the University of Buffalo.
Researchers use genetic therapy to cure type 1 diabetes in mice
A team of Baylor College of Medicine researchers may have identified a genetic therapy that can stimulate the growth of new insulin-producing pancreatic cells and reverse the symptoms of type 1 diabetes, according to a recent presentation at the Annual Meeting of the Endocrine Society.
Researchers work to develop new artificial pancreas technology for use in type 1 diabetes treatments
A new artificial pancreas system being developed by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute could potentially save individuals with type 1 diabetes from the persistent demands of regularly checking blood sugar levels, its inventors said.
Uncovering process that determines fate of stem cells may lead to better treatments for type 1 diabetes
By looking at markers on proteins known as histones, around which DNA molecules wind, a team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania believes that it may be possible to predict the fate of embryonic stem cells. This knowledge could be used to steer these cells toward developing into insulin-producing pancreatic cells, which individuals with type 1 diabetes lack.
Evidence mounts for possible link between autism and type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
While the causes of autism remain unknown, new evidence suggests that a child may be more likely to develop the condition if their mother had type 2 diabetes, was obese or had high blood pressure.
Researchers seek to determine if combination of two type 1 diabetes medications will work
A new study on the possibility of combining injections of insulin and the blood sugar-mediating drug pramlintide could help individuals with type 1 diabetes limit the number of injections they need to take each day.
New study shows it may be possible to turn pancreatic cells into insulin producers in people with type 1 diabetes
A team of researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) may have discovered a mechanism that could turn cells in the pancreas into insulin-producing beta cells, thereby eliminating the need to take insulin injections among individuals with type 1 diabetes.
Medical costs are higher for children with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes than healthy youths
Young people who have type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes have significantly higher annual medical expenses than children who do not have the disease, according to a new study from researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Researchers look at protein that may contribute to development of type 1 diabetes
Low levels of the protein interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) may predict an increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes in children, according to a study currently being conducted by researchers at Georgia Health Sciences University.
New study describes molecular process that causes type 1 diabetes
A team of scientists from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research has identified a group of previously unknown immune system cells that may play a major role in the development of type 1 diabetes. The researchers believe that their findings could lead to the creation of new medications to suppress these cells and help individuals avoid the condition.
Low-carbohydrate diets shown to improve kidney function in individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
Low-carbohydrate diets may reverse impaired kidney function in individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, according to a new study conducted by researchers at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
