University Of Iowa Celebrates The Dedication Of The Fraternal Order Of Eagles Diabetes Research Center - 100 Researchers Help Identify New Treatments & Cures For Diabetes
Date:8/25/2014

so well known for inventing a painless hypodermic needle inspired by the structure of porcupine quills.

Dr Abel’s own group is studying why people with diabetes are at greater risk for heart failure. They are investigating why high levels of insulin in people with insulin resistance might be damaging to the heart, exploring how to reduce that damage but at the same time maintaining people’s diabetes control.

Other groups in the FOE DRC working across the University of Iowa campus, are studying new treatments to prevent diabetic nerve damage, new ways to detect early diabetic eye disease, better ways to treat and prevent high blood pressure in diabetics and testing new pumps and sensors for kids and adults with type 1 diabetes that can automatically measure blood sugar levels and adjust insulin doses 24 hours per day.

Nearly one in 12 Americans is affected by diabetes, including young Iowans such as Micah Cabbage, who was diagnosed at age 12. Micah’s mother, Joanne, said, “These kids have to live with the burden of diabetes every minute of every day; they can’t just be kids. It would be life changing to not think about diabetes all of the time. If the work at the FOE DRC can bring us to that point, it would mean everything to us.”
