Future directions for landmark diabetes study in journal Diabetes Care

e damage and heart disease."

Intensive management of diabetes includes multiple daily injections of insulin and careful blood glucose monitoring.

The doctor said one of the amazing aspects of the study is the high rate of participation by the research subjects, even 30 years later. "We find participation levels greater than 80 to 90 percent in many follow-up studies," she said. "The research participants believe they are contributing to a greater good that will help future patients."

In the coming years, Dr. Gubitosi-Klug said that DCCT/EDIC hopes to study several new areas, including defining the relative time course of the development of retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy, and whether rates of progression in one can shed light on the development of the other complications; establishing evidence-based frequency of screening for these complications; refining self-monitoring to learn more about the role of variability in glucose levels on outcomes; exploring the effects of glucose control on cognition and continuing to monitor the bottom line that intensive management prevents costly complications and is economically sage, among other initiatives.

Saul Genuth, MD, an endocrinologist at UH Case Medical Center and Professor of Medicine at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine, has co-chaired DCCT/EDIC since its inception.

An accompanying editorial in Diabetes Care, calls the study "the gift that keeps on giving." The complete anniversary issue is located at: http://care.diabetesjournals.org/site/misc/dcct.xhtml
