Type 1 Diabetes Prevention

People who have type diabetes can help prevent or delay the development of complications by keeping their blood sugar in a target range. They also need regular medical checkups to detect early signs of complications. If complications are treated early, the damage may be stopped, slowed, or possibly reversed.. Prevention may be attempted at three levels in early childhood before there is evidence of immune activation directed against islet cells primary prevention in non diabetic individuals with humoral or metabolic markers of high risk of progression to diabetes secondary prevention and in the attempt to . Type diabetes isn t like type diabetes, which at times can be prevented by taking good care of your bodywatching yourt and staying physically fit and active. With type diabetes, you can stave off or prevent the short term and long term complications of the disease..Yet, the majority of individuals who present with type diabetes do not have a known relative who had the disease, and newborn screening programs for genetic risk markers are not yet universal. If there were an available clinical prevention strategy with demonstrated effectiveness, the case could be made that such .
