What We’re Reading: Rodent Research

By Tara Dairman | December 7, 2006 10:28 am

This week, we’d like to direct your attention to two blog posts on the topic of rodent research and diabetes. The first post, found at www.thediabetesblog.com, covers the latest development in the ongoing testing of a protocol that reverses Type 1 diabetes in mice. This blog entry is written by Allie Beatty, a writer with Type 1 diabetes.

The second post, found at http://blogs.healthcentral.com/diabetes, discusses a new study of insulin resistance in rats and reminds people to be wary of how the media can exaggerate the applicability of rodent research to humans. That blog entry is written by Dr. Bill Quick, a physician who also has diabetes.
