Insulin resistance risk factor for diabetic complications
Insulin resistance is one of the growing concern in treating diabetes. A recent study published in the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice has highlighted the importance of insulin resistance (IR) changes in the development of diabetes complications. This implies the need for intensive therapy in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and IR.
Till now, no longitudinal study has evaluated the changes in IR status and development of complications in type 1 diabetes. Yuanjie Mao and Wenjun Zhong from the USA aimed to investigate the associations of IR status changes and diabetic complications in T1D by analyzing data sets from DCCT/EDIC study.
