Joslin Medalist Study/ Update-2010
I participated in the Joslin Medalist Study on Dec 1, 2009. The study involves an attempt to determine why a significant number of Type 1 diabetics have lived 50 years or more and have no serious complications. If the factors can be found that account for the good health of these long term Type 1 diabetics, then a treatment may be devised so that young and more recently diagnosed Type 1 diabetics can live long lives without complications. More than 550 diabetics have been examined thus far.
The most recent update (2010) of this study is contained in the link below.
