An overview

Here follows a collection of diabetes studies that I at some point have read/skimmed and considered interesting and informative, and well, relevant:

1. Mortality trends among diabetics. A study on 1,075 patients with early onset (

2. Microalbuminuria and Mortality

3. Incipient nephropathy in Type 1 diabetes

3a. “The early natural history of nephropathy in type 1 diabetes” (part I)

3b. -ll- (part II)

4. Vision loss and diabetic retinopathy (in Danish). Also contains a few Danish numbers on type 1 diabetes and mortality.

4a. Linking corneal structure and -sensitivity in type 1 diabetic patients with the risk of developing polyneuropathy.

5. Coronary heart disease in young Type 1 diabetic patients

5a. The relationsship between coronary artery calcification and later onset coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction among adults with type 1 diabetes.

6. Lower extremity foot ulcers and amputations.

6a. Linking foot ulceration hazard with peripheral neuropathy

7. Increased Risk of Common Infections in Patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

8. Insulin misuse among young females with type 1 diabetes (among other things).

9. Prevalence and predictors of sexual dysfunction in patients with type 1 diabetes. (do notice that the sample might be biased. Are diabetics living in a stable relationsship more or less likely to have sexual problems than diabetics living alone?)

These days, with the internet and the loads and loads of knowledge that are just flowing freely around online, there really is no good reason why a diabetic shouldn’t know at least as much about his/her disease than his/her primary care physician does.
