 Type 1 Diabetes Mortality Reduced With Early Intervention
People with type 1 diabetes who intensively control their blood glucose soon after diagnosis have better longevity than those who do not, reveals a new study.

According to study a University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health investigator, there is a 33 percent reduction in deaths over the past several decades among participants who had early, good control of their blood glucose.

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).
