Let's start with blood glucose control.
- Confirmed that tight blood glucose control
could reduce the risk of eye, kidney, and nerve complications by 50 to 75 percent.
- We are continuing to follow the DCCT patients and to
look at the long-term effects of intensive therapy.
- Benefits of tight blood glucose control were sustained 4
years after the DCCT
-Latest findings from EDIC show that intensive therapy not
only reduced microvascular complications, but also the atherosclerosis that leads to CVD.
