Study reaches recruitment target with help of young volunteer – 4
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. In a large international study researchers are looking to parents, children, brothers, sisters and even aunts, uncles and cousins of people with type 1 diabetes to solve the puzzle of how the disease develops and how to prevent it. Dr. Judy Fradkin at NIH, explains that the current treatment involves: measuring glucose and insulin injections.
Fradkin: If we can find a strategy to prevent or delay the onset, we can give children back many years of carefree childhood without all of the difficulties of pricking their fingers and adjusting their insulin.Narrator: For more about helping researchers find a cure for type 1 diabetes, visit www.diabetestrialnet.org. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
