The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial: Weight EffectsPosted August 4, 2014 by John L. Leahy, MD
Is there actually a proven benefit of intensive blood glucose control in patients who have diabetes, and if there is what actually is that benefit? In this 8-minute podcast, Drs. Jack Leahy and Doron Schneider answer this question based on data from The Diabetes Control and Complications study.
Drs. Jack Leahy and Doron Schneider discuss what The Diabetes Control and Complications study discovered about weight issues and patients with diabetes.
