Statins may lower risk of diabetic retinopathy
Certain statin medications, which are commonly used to treat high cholesterol levels, may limit the risk of a person with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes of losing their eyesight to retinopathy, according to a new study from University of Georgia researchers.
Dwarfism genes may provide protection against diabetes
Individuals with a certain type of dwarfism may have a genetic protection against type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from the University of Southern California. Researchers hope that their findings could eventually lead to a new treatment for the disease in all individuals.
Blood sugar levels may predict future retinopathy risk
Individuals who have poorly controlled type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes may be at greater risk of developing retinopathy, according to a new study from a team of French researchers. They found that persistently high levels of blood sugar are a strong indicator of future retinopathy risk.
Signs of heart disease may be clear in type 1 diabetics at an early age
The early signs of cardiovascular disease in children with type 1 diabetes are likely to present before the onset of puberty, according to a new study from Medical College of London researchers. The findings could provide doctors with clues to help them identify patients who are most at risk for cardiovascular complications.
Researchers identify new pathway to solve insulin dependency
Whether an individual has type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes, they are often burdened by the need to take insulin to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. However, a team of researchers from Children's Hospital in Boston has shown that it may be possible to control blood sugar without needing to inject insulin.
New guidelines help schools care for children with type 1 diabetes
In an effort to help the caregivers of children with type 1 diabetes keep these youths healthy, the National Diabetes Education Program, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, has updated its manual on caring for diabetic children.
Handling fruit before blood sugar testing may throw off results
While eating more fruit can help diabetics minimize their risk of heart disease, it may lead to elevated blood sugar test results. However, this is not necessarily because their blood sugar is higher after eating a piece of fruit. Researchers Juntendo University Graduate School of Medicine in Tokyo have found that tiny scraps of fruit can stay on the fingers of diabetics, which can throw off test results.

Common Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments for Type 1 Diabetes
This slideshow explains the most common causes, symptoms, and treatments for type 1 diabetes, formerly known as juvenile diabetes.
More education helps diabetics stick to treatment plans
While tremendous strides have been made in the last couple of decades in medications for treating type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, these advancements mean nothing if patients are unwilling or unable to following instructions for taking these drugs.
Blocking immune cells may be key to preventing diabetic wounds
Many individuals who have type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes eventually develop wounds on their lower extremities that refuse to heal. Occasionally, these sores become so bad that the limb needs to be amputated. However, research from Loyola University may soon yield a new medication that could prevent this process, as scientists say they are getting close to a cure for the problem.
Cold virus associated with type 1 diabetes risk
People who have type 1 diabetes and prediabetes autoimmunity are 10 times more likely to be infected by the enterovirus, a microbe that causes everything from the common cold to meningitis and polio, than the general population, according to a new study from a team of Australian researchers.
Researchers find possible solution for insulin dependence in type 1 diabetes
In what some are calling a potential cure for type 1 diabetes, researchers from UT Southwestern Medical Center have found that suppressing a single hormone may make the condition completely asymptomatic and eliminate the need for insulin injections.
Researchers identify mechanism behind diabetic complications
Blood vessel problems are among the most common complications for individuals with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. However, a team of researchers from Washington University in St. Louis recently discovered the underlying cause of these complications, which may enable them to produce improved medications that help individuals avoid the problems.
Most med school grads are unprepared to treat diabetes
Many recent graduates of medical school programs may have very little training in how to care for chronic disease, which could greatly impair their ability to treat a patient who has type 1 or type 2 diabetes, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University.
CDC updates diabetes prevalence estimates
The number of individuals who have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes continues to rise at an alarming rate, according to new numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
