The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) and Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) Research Group said that compared to conventional therapy, near-normal control of blood glucose beginning soon after diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and continuing an average six and a half years reduced by half the long-term risk of developing kidney disease, The risk of kidney failure was also halved, but the difference was not statistically significant, perhaps due to the relatively small total number of patients who reached that stage of the disease.
The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) [4] (1) and its long-term follow-up study, the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) (2), have been following a cohort of 1441 patients enrolled in 1983-1989 with periodic collections of biological specimens for assay of biochemical and metabolic measurements, and with long-term storage of split aliquots.
Called the Epidemiology of Diabetes Interventions and Complications (EDIC) study, this follow-up research is looking at the long-term effects of prior intensive versus conventional blood glucose control.
