As more children and teens with diabetes use technology to treat the disease, U.S. kids of lower socioeconomic status are being increasingly left behind.
As part of the series,Breaking down diabetes, physician Randall Stafford provides a straightforward guide to medications that can treat Type 2 diabetes.
Metformin is physician-researcher Randall Stafford's go-to drug for diabetes. He explains why in this installment in the series, Breaking down diabetes.
Technology that sends blood sugar-level updates to their smartphones improves outcomes for young people with type 1 diabetes, a Stanford trial shows.
Stanford University bioengineers are developing a faster-acting formulation of insulin that can help diabetes patients better regulate their blood sugar levels.
A Stanford team is developing a bioscaffold that helps insulin-producing cells get enough oxygen when transplanted for diabetes treatment.
Taking a community-based approach to diabetes could help curb high rates of the disease in less wealthy nations, new research suggests.
The latest type 1 diabetes technology improves the stability of patients' blood sugar levels throughout the day and during sleep, according to a new trial.
