World Diabetes Day Spotlights Type 1 Diabetes Increase and World Class Response
Date:11/8/2007

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- World Diabetes Day, November 14, is observed every year by over 200 associations in more than 160 countries, and by others with an interest in diabetes.

In contrast, type 2 diabetes occurs more often in adults, can sometimes be prevented or delayed through diet and exercise, and doesn't always require insulin injections.

"The greatest change is an increased rate of diabetes in children under age five," he adds.

In response, diabetes researchers around the world have been working to advance the study, prevention and treatment of type 1 diabetes. As a result, the way the disease is detected and treated is dramatically changing. A simple blood test can now reveal a pe
