Research: Causes and Prevention from 2005

  2. My daughter's GAD and IAA test results from the TrialNet study were above normal. Does this increase her risk of developing diabetes? (29 Oct 2005)
  3. Our eight year old recently had an elevated blood sugar and positive GAD-65 antibodies, but no other symptoms. How can we delay the onset of diabetes? (5 Oct 2005)
  4. I believe my diabetes was caused by the Accutane I took about 18 months earlier. Has there been any research done on this? (8 Sep 2005)
  5. Are there clinical trial options geared toward prolonging the onset of type 1 in a child who has an elevated GADA? (17 Jul 2005)

  9. I read a doctor's testimony claiming diabetes in caused by vertebrae pinching the nerves that supply insulin to the pancreas. Is this true? (8 Feb 2005)
