Found: A Gene That May Play a Role in Type 1 Diabetes

Scientists have identified a gene that may play a role in the development of type 1 diabetes.
Exercise and Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetics with Insulin Pumps Benefit from Aerobic Exercise

A new study of people with type 1 diabetes who use an insulin pump details how aerobic exercise improved metabolic control and reduced insulin...

Recovering T Regulatory Cells in Pancreas May Restore Insulin Production in Diabetics

The key to restoring production of insulin in type I diabetic patients, previously known as juvenile diabetes, may be in recovering the population of protective cells known T regulatory cells in the lymph nodes at the "gates" of the pancreas.

Human Beta-Cell Line Offers Hope For Type 1 Diabetes Breakthrough

Transplantation of insulin-producing pancreatic beta-cells shows great promise as a treatment for type 1 diabetes.
Islet Transplant - New Treatment for Type 1 Diabetes

New Type 1 Diabetes Treatment Option Discovered

New treatment for Type 1 Diabetes is on the horizon thanks to researchers who discovered a more successful option than the one currently used.

Study: Brain Function Not Impaired By Tight Diabetes Control and Hypoglycemia

The landmark Diabetes Control and Complications Trial showed conclusively that tight blood glucose control significantly reduces the risk of developing complications of diabetes such as eye, kidney and nerve disease. But the DCCT also showed that tight control -- achieved by taking three or more insulin injections daily -- can come at a cost.
Sensor Tests Glucose Levels for Diabetes

New Paper Patch for Diabetics Measures Blood Sugar Levels, Pain-Free

New sensor patch allows diabetics to effectively measure their sugar levels, pain free.
Verapamil for TYpe 1 Diabetes

Common Blood Pressure Medicine an Effective Type 1 Diabetes Therapy, Clinical Trial Reveals

Safe and effective therapy discovered to reduce insulin requirements and hypoglycemic episodes in certain Type 1 diabetics using a common blood pressure drug.

Rapid-Acting Insulin Analogues: No Proof of Additional Benefit for Type 1 Children and Adolescents

Due to a lack of suitable studies, it remains unclear whether children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes benefit more or less from long-term treatment with rapid-acting insulin analogues than with short-acting human insulin.

Single-Donor Islet Transplantation Procedure Shows Promise For Patients With Type 1 Diabetes

Patients with type 1 diabetes who received islet transplantation from a single donor pancreas were insulin independent one year later, according to a recent study.

Researchers Develop Way to Measure Blood Glucose Levels by Shining Light on the Skin

To minimize that pain and inconvenience, researchers at MIT's Spectroscopy Laboratory have developed a noninvasive way to measure blood glucose levels using light.

Suspected Cause of Type 1 Diabetes Caught

Scientists have examined in unprecedented detail the immune cells long thought to be responsible for type 1 diabetes. They caught the immune cells, known as dendritic cells, "red-handed": they were carrying insulin and fragments of insulin-producing cells.

People with Type 1 Diabetes Live Longer with Early Blood Glucose Control

People with type 1 diabetes who intensively control their blood glucose (blood sugar) early in their disease are likely to live longer than those who do not.

Hba1C Levels Did Not Improve After Personalized Education and Assessment from Ophthalmologist

Personalized education and risk assessment for people with diabetes visiting the ophthalmologist did not improve hemoglobin A1c levels or glycemic control. Providing personalized education and...

Scientists Use Transcription Factors To Increase Insulin Production In Diabetic Mice

A group of scientists has used gene therapy to deliver three insulin transcription factors to the livers of diabetic mice. As a result, the mice experienced an increase in insulin gene expression and insulin production.

Study Examines Insulin Pump Therapy in Adolescents

Joslin study shows durability of insulin pump therapy for adolescents and identifies factors to help them overcome barriers to success.
