Lead author Trevor Orchard, M.D., professor of epidemiology at Pitt Public Health said that they can now confidently tell doctors and patients that good, early control of blood glucose greatly reduces any risk for early mortality in people with type 1 diabetes, usually diagnosed in children and young adults and these results also remove any lingering concern that intensive therapy may lead to increased mortality.

The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
