Benefits Of Long-term, Intensive Therapy For Type 1 Diabetes Patients

Type 1 diabetes patients on long-term, intensive therapy are more likely to achieve near-normal levels of blood glucose, as well as a significantly lower risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney problems and severe eye disease, researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital Diabetes Center in Boston reported at the American Diabetes Association's 73rd Scientific Sessions, Chicago, Illinois.

"The long-term results of the DCCT/EDIC further reinforce the importance of early intensive therapy over the lifetime of people with type 1 diabetes. Our challenge now is to ensure that all patients with type 1 diabetes are able to take advantage of these remarkable findings and to make intensive therapy as convenient and safe as possible."
