The nationwide launch of The Diabetes Prevention Trial – Type 1 (DPT-1) marked a new era in the research that will advance scientific progress toward this remarkable goal, according to Della Matheson, RN, CDE, Trial Coordinator for the study at the University of Miami.

There are approximately one million Americans living with this disease and another 30, 000 children and young adults newly diagnosed every year.Despite huge improvements in the care and treatment of Type 1 Diabetes in the past twenty years, this disease remains the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, and amputations in America.The cost of diabetes to individuals and to the public measures in billions of dollars annually with an immeasurable cost to the quality of life in those affected with this serious disease.Although research for a cure remains at the forefront for the children of today who have Diabetes, it is equally as important for the children of tomorrow that prevention of this life-threatening disease becomes a reality, added Ms. Matheson.
Type 1 (insulin dependent) Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that usually occurs in childhood or young adulthood.By autoimmune, we mean that the persons own immune system has been triggered to destroy its own tissue.In the case of Type 1 (insulin dependent) Diabetes, the body has attacked and destroyed the insulin producing cells, known as islet cells. Without islet cells, the body no longer makes insulin and Type 1 Diabetes occurs.Destruction of the cells is gradual and most symptoms of diabetes do not begin until almost all insulin-producing cells are destroyed.Most people do not realize they are developing diabetes until the damage is complete.
...
Of those 2, 985 have been found to have the Islet Cell Antibodies, explained Ms. Matheson.Once the antibody is found, we invite the participants to come in for further testing that will actually measure their degree of risk, added the nurse coordinator for the University of Miami study.These tests include the measurement of additional antibody activity, genetic testing that may influence risk for development of diabetes, and tests that measure the amount of insulin the person is currently able to produce.With the results of these staging tests, the researchers can determine if the person is at low risk, moderate risk, or high risk for developing diabetes over the next five years.Those at Moderate Risk (25-50 % risk for development over the next five years) and those at High Risk (greater than 50 % risk for development over the next five years) are asked if they want to participate in research to see if the development of diabetes can be prevented.
Almost all type 1 Diabetics developed their disease before the age of 40 and need to take daily insulin injections.

Della Matheson, a registered nurse and research coordinator at the Diabetes Research Institute, University of Miami, said she used to stick her finger eight to 10 times a day. With her continuous sensor - she uses DexCom - she can get a reading every five minutes.

"It gives me more information so I can anticipate where I'm headed and what I'm going to do behaviorally," she said.

Matheson said the pens are more convenient. "You can carry them in your purse or your pocket, it makes it easier to take your insulin on the go," she said.
