Giovanna Beauchamp, M.D. and Michael J. Haller, M.D., M.S. recently released a review of several type 1 diabetes (T1D) prevention studies in Current Diabetes Reports. The publication, titled ‘Can We Prevent Type 1 Diabetes?,’ highlights recent and ongoing efforts to understand the…
UF researchers are seeking to determine differences in pancreatic volume between new-onset Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) patients, antibody positive subjects at increased risk for T1D, and healthy controls. The study will also be used to determine if pancreatic volume correlates with indirect biochemical markers of endocrine and exocrine pancreatic function.
Individuals with newly-diagnosed type 1 diabetes. Researchers hope to delay and ultimately prevent diabetes by finding new approaches of diagnosing the disease in its earliest stage to optimize the potential for successful treatment and testing of innovative new therapies.
Individuals who have long-standing type 1 diabetes. Research ranges from studies to save insulin producing cells to therapies to help manage diabetes and reduce possible disease complications.
If someone in your family has type 1 diabetes, you and other family members may be at risk. We offer many research trials through TrialNet, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Network (JDRF) and The Helmsley Foundation, to name a few.
Approximately 95 percent of all diabetes cases are type 2 manifestation. A number of studies are underway at the University of Florida and UF Health Jacksonville to help manage and treat the disease in both children and adults, as well as testing new innovative therapies as a means of reducing the risk for future complications.
An estimated three out of five people with a diabetes manifestation have at least one other serious health problem commonly associated with the disease, including periodontal disease, heart disease, stroke, eye damage, chronic kidney disease, nerve pain, and foot problems which can lead to amputations. UF research aims to minimize the risk factors which can lead to these complications.
