Diabetes Self-Management Blog

This week, we’d like to direct your attention to the following articles at www.medlineplus.gov, a Web site run by the National Institutes of Health, and diabetes.about.com, a diabetes blog written by practicing nurse Debra Manzella. The articles are about a recent clinical trial of anakinra, an injected drug that is used to treat juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The trial found that it also holds some promise for helping to manage Type 2 diabetes.

The study was published in The New England Journal of Medicine on April 12.
