Researcher identifies clear predictors of rising A1C levels in young persons, as well as ways to improve glycemic control in this population. Managing type 1diabetes during the first two decades of life is challenging. Insulin requirements change along with the stages of life childhood, puberty, young adulthood, and beyond. But a 20-year longitudinal study conducted by researchers from Joslin Diabetes Center and Harvard Medical School identifies clear predictors of rising A1C levels in young persons, as well as ways to improve glycemic control in this population.
