Recognizing that our ultimate goal at Integrated Diabetes Services is to help our clients live healthier, happier lives, we cannot overstate the importance of sound emotional health. Diabetes places an emotional and physical strain on all of us (patients, caregivers, and yes, even healthcare providers!), putting us at high risk for a number of mental health complications. To address this need, we have partnered with one of the best in the business: Dana Lehman, Psy. D.

An early research study suggests that imatinib, which is a drug that suppresses the immune system , may help to preserve some beta cell function in people who are recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

Have you ever noticed when you look at your lab results, there's a measure of kidney function called eGFR that is reported for both non-African American, and for African American? That's because there are racial and ethnic differences in kidney function decline. When it comes to A1c levels, they are higher in black people than in white people. It is debatable if this is because of poorer glycemic control, or whether there are, in fact, differences between the races in the glycation of hemoglobin.
