Diabetes Research

Diabetes and Kidney Disease
Several areas of research on diabetes and kidney disease hold great potential. Discovery of ways to predict who will develop kidney disease may lead to greater prevention, as people with diabetes who learn they are at risk institute strategies such as intensive management and blood pressure control. Discovery of better anti-rejection drugs will improve results of kidney transplantation in people with diabetes who develop kidney failure.
 
For some people with type 1 diabetes, advances in transplantation -- especially transplantation of insulin-producing cells of the pancreas -- could lead to a cure for both diabetes and the kidney disease it may cause.
