Children with type 1 diabetes transitioning to adult diabetic care face unique challenges, including whether they have neuropathic lesions at the time of transition. Researchers sought to assess the neuropathic condition of this patient population to better define their needs.
The relationship between body composition and severe diabetic eye disease in people with type 1 diabetes is unclear. A group of Finnish and Australian researchers sought to discover if there was a connection.
In data collected from 6 geographic areas of the US from 2001 to 2017, the estimated prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes among children and adolescents increased. Potential reasons emerged from the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth study.
