Identifying those at risk of developing complications from diabetes

complications. See full story
Danish and Australian researchers are teaming up with the goal of better understanding the relationship between the risks for and actual development of complications arising from diabetes, including diabetic kidney disease (DKD).

“Our goal is to understand the burden, natural history and propensity of the Danish population, with or at risk of diabetes, to develop complications,” they say. “We want to outline the clinical, metabolic and epigenetic correlates of diseases in order ultimately to predict, treat and prevent diabetic kidney disease.” An important associated goal of the group is to find those patients with diabetic kidney disease who need more aggressive treatment. 

The Australian contribution comes from Professor Sam El-Osta, who is Head of the Epigenetics in Human Health and Disease Program in the Department of Diabetes, Central Clinical School at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. He has been awarded a grant by the Danish Diabetes Academy to go to Denmark as a Visiting Professor and contribute his knowledge.
