New Developments in Diabetes
Dec 09, 2018 Cedars-Sinai Staff
Diabetes affects the everyday lives of more than 100 million people living in the US.
Diabetes is a complex disease that affects the body's ability to produce or respond to insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar.
"One of the most exciting areas where I think we'll see diabetes research and treatment expanding is to the microbiome."
New scientific advances are making the chronic condition easier to treat. New insights into how exactly the disease works could also offer different ways to treat it.
We asked 2 Cedars-Sinai diabetes experts for predictions on where the field will go next and reflections on their own diabetes research. Richard Bergman, PhD is the director of the Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute. Dr. Ruchi Mathur is an endocrinologist and director of the Diabetes Outpatient Teaching Education Center.
