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.
Anti-seizure medications may help type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes patients who suffer from nerve pain, new report says
A number of medications currently available for treating seizures and other medical conditions may be effective in treating the pain and burning sensations experienced by many individuals who suffer from type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes, according to new treatment guidelines from the American Academy of Neurology.
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.
Researchers uncover first hard evidence that nicotine raises blood sugar levels in individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
For years, health experts have known that there was an association between smoking and poor blood sugar control in individuals with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. However, they lacked the hard evidence to show that any substance in cigarette smoke actually caused unhealthy blood sugar levels.
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.
Most diabetics have poor control over their condition
The vast majority of individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes in the U.S. as well as around the world receive ineffective care and do a poor job of managing their condition, which increases their risk of developing cardiovascular complications and dying early, according to a new report from University of Washington researchers.
Researchers identify new cause of loss of insulin production among those who have type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
One of the main causes of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes is the death of insulin-producing beta cells. Doctors have worked for years to find a way to prevent the death of these vital cells, and now researchers from the University of Texas may have found a clue that could lead to the development of more effective treatments.
Researchers identify risks for kidney disease and death among type 1 diabetics
Individuals who have type 1 diabetes often develop kidney disease at some point in their lives. Additionally, these patients tend to die at an early age. However, the two problems have a range of causes, and identifying specific risk factors has been difficult.
Researchers look for ways to improve type 1 diabetes treatment
Islet cell transplantation is a promising field of study that many experts believe could one day result in a cure for type 1 diabetes. These cells play an important role in insulin production, and diabetics often have too few.
