Type 1 diabetes, which arises when the pancreas doesn't create enough insulin to control levels of glucose in the blood, is a disease that currently has no cure and is difficult for most patients to manage.

High proportion of people with diabetes have chronic kidney disease, research revealsSome 42% of patients attending a dedicated diabetes clinic have signs of established chronic kidney disease, the first detailed research of its kind in Ireland has revealed.
 
 
 Study shows how epigenetic factors modulate the risk of type 1 diabetes
 
Study shows how epigenetic factors modulate the risk of type 1 diabetesGenetics plays a major role in determining a person’s risk of developing type 1 diabetes, but environmental and lifestyle factors are also important. In an article recently published in Chinese Medical Journal, a team of researchers explore the interplay of genetic and environmental factors by summarizing the literature on type 1 diabetes and epigenetics—the study of how gene expression patterns can be modified.
 
 
 Mother's gestational diabetes is an independent risk factor for fetal hypoxia during labor
 
Mother's gestational diabetes is an independent risk factor for fetal hypoxia during laborIn Finland, every fifth mother was diagnosed with gestational diabetes in 2019. The condition increases the mother's risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the future.
 
 
 Modulating the rap1 mechanism can help control blood sugar levels
 
Modulating the rap1 mechanism can help control blood sugar levelsManaging type 2 diabetes typically involves losing weight, exercise and medication, but new research by Dr. Makoto Fukuda and colleagues at Baylor College of Medicine and other institutions suggests that there may be other ways to control the condition through the brain.
