yday clinical practice, we know that it is difficult for people with type 1 diabetes to control blood glucose levels under certain weather conditions, but the direct effects on glucose variability are not completely understood," she adds. The clinical study, led out of the Semmelweis University, will therefore try to identify new biomarkers and environmental factors that have an impact on glucose levels and the risk of hypoglycemia in type 1 diabetes.
As part of World Diabetes Day celebrations in the European Parliament in Brussels, Doctor Lukacs received today the IDF Europe Prize in Diabetes for Young Researcher. "We are pleased to hand over the prize to Doctor Krisztina Lukacs, said Professor Sehnaz Karadeniz, President Elect of IDF Europe and Chair of the prize's Nominating Committee. "Her scientific work aiming to better understand, predict and prevent hypoglycemia is undoubtedly a major contribution in improving the lives of people living with diabetes."
Doctor Lukacs was present in Brussels to receive the award personally. "It is an honour for me to receive this prize. Through our research, we strive to improve diabetes prediction, screening and treatment. Our ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life and the health outcomes for people living with diabetes," she said.
As the winner of the IDF Europe Prize in Diabetes for Young Research, Doctor Krisztina Lukacs will receive a cheque of 10,000 euros that she will donate to a charity of her choice.
An initiative led by the European Region of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF Europe), the Prize in Diabetes for Young Researcher is supported from Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
