Some medications that work for adults with type 2 diabetes don't work as well in adolescents and youth with type 2 diabetes. Also, younger people with type 2 diabetes appear to develop complications more quickly than older people with the disease. Those are some of the findings of a recent study that involved patients from Upstate's Joslin Diabetes Center. Ruth Weinstock, MD, PhD, chief of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at Upstate, discusses that study, plus several others related to type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and offers a look at what's on the horizon of diabetes care. The Joslin Diabetes Center offers a variety of clinical trials; click here for more information or call 315-464-9008.
