Scientists have identified a gene that may play a role in the development of type 1 diabetes.
A new study of people with type 1 diabetes who use an insulin pump details how aerobic exercise improved metabolic control and reduced insulin...
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.
Transplantation of insulin-producing pancreatic beta-cells shows great promise as a treatment for type 1 diabetes.
New treatment for Type 1 Diabetes is on the horizon thanks to researchers who discovered a more successful option than the one currently used.
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.
New sensor patch allows diabetics to effectively measure their sugar levels, pain free.
Safe and effective therapy discovered to reduce insulin requirements and hypoglycemic episodes in certain Type 1 diabetics using a common blood pressure drug.
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.
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.
To minimize that pain and inconvenience, researchers at MIT's Spectroscopy Laboratory have developed a noninvasive way to measure blood glucose levels using light.
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 who intensively control their blood glucose (blood sugar) early in their disease are likely to live longer than those who do not.
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...
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.
Joslin study shows durability of insulin pump therapy for adolescents and identifies factors to help them overcome barriers to success.
