Research: Causes and Prevention from 2007

  1. Type 2 runs in my family. I am thin and exercise quite a bit, but still have pre-diabetes. If I continue to exercise, will I be able to avoid getting full blown diabetes? (25 Dec 2007)
  2. Are there any new injections or medicines to give to newborn babies to prevent them from getting diabetes? (8 Dec 2007)
  3. Our 11-year-old has had type 1 for seven years. Now, her younger sister has been diagnosed with it. Do my wife and I have certain genes that caused their diabetes? (7 Nov 2007)
  4. Would it be beneficial to give my younger son Omega 3 supplements to help reduce the risk of developing type 1? My older son has had type 1 for two years. (26 Oct 2007)
  5. Can a child develop diabetes if they eat a lot of sugary foods? (18 Oct 2007)
