Research Topics


Diabetes takes two forms: Type 1 and Type 2. In both conditions, the pancreas produces little to no insulin, which is necessary to metabolize sugar. While both conditions have similarities, there is no known way to prevent Type 1 diabetes. Further, Type 1 typically begins in children and young adults. Type 2, which usually begins in older adults, is a considered a preventable, chronic metabolic disorder. Long-term complications from both conditions include heart disease, stroke, diabetic retinopathy (which can result in blindness), kidney failure, and poor blood flow in the limbs, which may lead to amputations. VA research focuses on Type 2 diabetes, which more commonly impacts Veterans.
