blood glucose

People with type 2 diabetes who are not using insulin, are typically instructed to monitor their blood glucose levels regularly. But a new study suggests that doing so may not provide any long-term benefits for controlling those levels. This could be the end of what has been the standard of care for these patients.
Having Type 1 diabetes means a person's insulin-producing beta cells don't work normally. New research brings us closer to the day that new, functional beta cells can be produced in the lab and given to diabetics to normalize their metabolism.
