Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a common chronic disease of childhood. Patients with T1D are at significant risk for developing serious health complications. Understanding of the genetics, environmental factors, and natural history of diabetes has lead to greater understanding of the etiology and epidemiology of T1D. Furthermore, technology has greatly improved glycemic control and reduction of complications. However, prevention of the development of diabetes remains elusive. This review article describes the past, current and upcoming strategies for diabetes prevention for patients at risk for developing autoimmunity, after antibody production, and patients with new onset diabetes.
