Researchers propose 5 distinct types of adult-onset diabetes

Researchers propose 5 distinct types of adult-onset diabetes”

Specialists said the study was a messenger without bounds of diabetes mind yet changes to treatment would not be quick.

Researchers then distinguished 5 distinct clusters that differ from today's classification: 3 severe and 2 mild forms of the disease.

One category, "severe insulin-deficient diabetes", is seen as similar to Type 1 but does not have antibodies indicating an autoimmune disease.

Diabetes is now classified into Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. "There are really subsets of the disease that require different treatment".

From that analysis, they identified five "clusters" of disease with significantly different characteristics.

Group 3, SIRD (severe insulin-resistant diabetes): is characterised by obesity and severe insulin resistance. Type 2 diabetes - usually diagnosed in adults - develops when the body can not produce enough insulin the right way.

"Current diagnostics and classification of diabetes are insufficient and unable to predict future complications or choice of treatment", said lead author Leif Groop, an endocrinologist at the Lund University Diabetes Center in Sweden as well as the Folkhalsan Research Centre in Finland, in a statement.

The outcomes, distributed in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, demonstrated the patients could be separated into five particular groups.

"Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are serious conditions that can lead to devastating complications such as amputation, blindness, kidney disease, stroke and heart disease if people don't receive the right care".

There were patients whose cells also stopped producing insulin, but not due to their immune system; they were often young and in otherwise good shape.

Cluster 4: Mild obesity related diabetes, seen in 21.6 per cent of patients. However, it's not yet clear whether patients can move between clusters over time, and the authors say they can't yet claim that their clustering method is the best classification system for diabetes subtypes.

BRADFORD district has the highest number of people in the United Kingdom suffering from diabetes, according to latest figures.

"O$3 ur data suggest that the combined information from a few variables central to the development of diabetes is superior to measurement of only one metabolite, glucose", Ahlqvist said.

The number of people diagnosed with diabetes in Yorkshire has reached an estimated 294,455, according to new analysis released by Diabetes UK.

In addition to a more refined classification, the researchers also discovered that the different groups are more or less at risk of developing various secondary diseases.

Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition controlled by insulin injections. Diabetic eye disease was most common in this group.

But Type 2 can be avoided by making lifestyle changes such as more exercise and a healthier diet.

The researchers plan to launch similar studies in China and India.

Cluster 5: Mild age-related diabetes is the biggest group, mostly elderly patients.

The findings could help doctors provide diabetes patients with tailored treatment programs - also called "precision medicine" - and help explain why some patients respond to medications differently.

As for genetic links, there were no variants associated with all the clusters.
