Our Process

Diabetes research areas

Diabetes can affect individuals of all ages and nationalities. The two primary types of diabetes are type 1 and type 2 diabetes. During pregnancy, there is also a form of diabetes known as gestational diabetes. People living with diabetes face challenges in managing their blood glucose levels due to issues with insulin production or utilization.

Clinical research plays a crucial role in discovering more convenient and effective methods to manage this condition, and even potentially prevent or reverse certain types of diabetes. Discover more about diabetes and related conditions being studied through our clinical research trials. Explore diabetes clinical trials here.

Type 1 diabetes, also known as type 1 diabetes mellitus, insulin-dependent diabetes, T1D, and T1DM, is a chronic autoimmune condition. While it commonly develops in children and teenagers, it can also occur in adults. This condition arises when the pancreas fails to produce sufficient insulin. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for type 1 diabetes. Treatment involves the use of insulin injections or an insulin pump to regulate glucose levels, along with the management of nutrition and lifestyle.

Type 2 diabetes, also referred to as type 2 diabetes mellitus, T2D, or T2DM, occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body is unable to effectively utilize insulin. Treatment involves managing lifestyle and nutrition, and medication may be necessary in certain instances. It is possible to prevent, delay, or even reverse type 2 diabetes in some cases.

Related Conditions include chronic kidney disease (CKD), cardiovascular disease (CVD), vision loss and nerve damage. Many medical conditions are linked to diabetes. Good blood glucose control can help in their prevention and management.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is when kidneys cannot filter blood properly.

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are diseases of the heart and blood vessels and can cause heart attack and stroke.

Vision loss and nerve damage are caused by high blood glucose over a long period of time. Regular eye tests and foot exams are important for people with diabetes.

Common symptoms of diabetes

The most common symptoms of undiagnosed Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are:
