Early blood glucose control in diabetes positive

According to a new study by Oxford University, intensively controlling blood glucose from the point of diagnosis amongst people with type 2 diabetes has a positive future affect.
The study, which has run for 30 years, was conducted by experts at the Oxford Centre for diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism. Controlling blood glucose at an earlier stage reportedly lowers risk of complications and death.
The chief investigator of the study, Professor Rury Holma, reportedly commented: “Good glucose control from the time type 2 diabetes is diagnosed reduces the rate of diabetic complications. This intervention leads to sustained benefits in the longer term.”
Conclusions of the study will be published in the New England Journal of Medicine .
