Type 1 Diabetes Resistor Study Seeking Participants

If you are living with Type 1 diabetes[1], you may be interested in a currently recruiting study from the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center.


The researchers are seeking to “identify and confirm substances that are associated with protection from complications of Type 1 diabetes” by studying people who have not developed severe eye and/or kidney disease after 30–49 years with Type 1. They aim to show that factors that are associated with protection from complications after 50 or more years with Type 1 diabetes may also be associated with protection from complications in those with higher HbA1c[2] levels (an indicator of blood sugar control over the previous 2–3 months) but fewer years living with diabetes.

Eligible participants are those who have been living with Type 1 diabetes for 30–49 years, have an HbA1c level of at least 7.5%, and do not have proliferative eye disease or who do not have kidney disease.

For more information about the research, visit the Joslin Diabetes Center website[3]. And for questions about the trial, contact Stephanie D’Eon at stephanie.d’[email protected][4] or (617) 309-4532.
