In an effort to help find a more effective treatment for individuals with type 1 diabetes, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation recently announced that it will fund an investigation into the effectiveness of a new hormone therapy.
Group calls for more type 1 diabetes research funding
Despite recent advances in diabetes research, the number of individuals who have developed type 1 diabetes in recent years has increased dramatically. In order to address the situation, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is calling for further funding to advance the treatment of these devastating conditions.
Dietary intervention may lower risk of type 1 diabetes
It is generally thought that genetic predispositions determine whether or not a child will develop type 1 diabetes. While genetics play a large role, a new study from European researchers has found that nutrition in the early stages of life may also factor into the equation.
Brain may play an important role in the benefits of leptin
Studies have suggested that the hormone leptin may help alleviate many of the metabolic symptoms of type 1 diabetes. However, little was known about how the hormone delivers the benefits.
New research hopes to identify better type 1 diabetes treatments
Individuals with type 1 diabetes who have had little success in controlling their symptoms may soon have a new treatment strategy to try.
Experts remind parents and teachers to check for signs of type 1 diabetes
Due to the fact that the majority of type 1 diabetes incidents happen during the fall and winter months, many experts say that the back-to-school seasons should act as a reminder to parents and teachers to be on the lookout for symptoms.
Immune cells may be responsible for type 1 diabetes, study finds
New research into the role that the immune system plays in type 1 diabetes may lead to improved treatments for the condition in the near future.
Harvard researchers look to the wisdom of crowds to solve diabetes problem
After decades of research and trials, scientists have been unable to cure type 1 diabetes. While advancements have been made in testing and treatment strategies, the ultimate answer to the question has remained elusive to researchers.
Implantable beads may end finger-prick blood sugar testing
While there are several potentially serious health complications that may arise from type 1 diabetes, many diabetics report that one of the most frustrating aspects of their condition is the continual pricks on the fingers they must endure to test their blood sugar.
