Summary

Diabetes in all its forms has continued to baffle scientists and doctors for centuries. Though its symptoms and mechanisms are well understood, the genetic and environmental causes of diabetes are difficult to unravel. Diagnosis and treatment of the different types of diabetes are no longer impossible, but prevention and a cure remain beyond current scientific capabilities. As the genetic variations that contribute to diabetes are being discovered, many scientists have hope that a cure will come during the lifetimes of today's young people. In Diabetes, learn how scientists worldwide are laboring to finally conquer this disease.
