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.
Artificial pancreas technology may be effective in adults with type 1 diabetes
During the night, many adults with type 1 diabetes experience dangerously low blood sugar levels. This can result in a number of potentially serious health complications. However, the use of an artificial pancreas may significantly improve the ability of these individuals' bodies to regulate glucose levels, according to a new study from University of Cambridge researchers.
Online tool helps people with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes manage their condition
A new Web application released by the American Diabetes Association that allows individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes to upload information about their condition could help patients manage their symptoms and improve their care.
Researchers find why some type 1 diabetics live free of health complications
While individuals who have suffered from type 1 diabetes for many years are significantly more likely to experience complications resulting from their condition, some with the metabolic disease remain free of these problems.
Treating gum disease may lower type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes costs, study finds
Treating individuals with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes for gum disease could lead to lower overall medical costs for those patients, according to a new study from dental plan provider CIGNA.
New findings could end the need for type 1 diabetics to take insulin
A team of researchers may have discovered a new mechanism in the digestive tract that could lead to improved treatments for type 1 diabetes. The hormone interaction described has similar functions to insulin, and could spare diabetics from the need for insulin injections.
Cost of treating type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes disproportionately falls on 10 states
A new report from the Institute for Alternative Futures shows that 10 states currently bear a disproportionate segment of the type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes burden in terms of costs, and predicts that the situation will only worsen in the coming years unless something is done to slow the spread of the disease.
New device could ease pain of blood sugar testing in people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes
One of the more unpleasant aspects of having type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes is monitoring blood sugar levels. This often involves somewhat painful pricks on the fingers to draw blood for testing. However, a new system being developed by a team of engineers at Arizona State University may help individuals avoid this process by testing their tears.
Researchers find 'diabetes belt' running through Southern U.S.
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified a group of states that officials are referring to as the "diabetes belt" of the U.S. for its high rates of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The officials said that identifying these states could help them direct resources to prevent the disease.
Diabetics face heightened risk of premature death
Despite the widespread belief that type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes can be cared for relatively easily, individuals with the disease still die much earlier than healthy people, according to a new study from University of Miami researchers.
