Diabetes Control and Complications Trial—A 10-year research study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) involving more than 1,400 people with Type I diabetes. The study proved that tight blood-glucose control can prevent or delay diabetic complications related to hyperglycemia.
A massive trial done in American in the late 80s to early 90s which proved for the first time conclusively that close monitoring and tight control of blood glucose levels lowers your risk of long term complications.
Diabetes Control and Complications Trial The DCCT was a 10-year (1983-1993) study of more than 1,400 patients with insulin-dependent diabetes. Funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to assess the effects of intensive therapy on the long-term complications of diabetes, the study proved that intensive management of insulin-dependent diabetes prevents or slows the development of eye, kidney, and nerve damage caused by diabetes.
Diabetes Control and Complication Trial. A 10-year US study, published in the early 1990s, that established a statistical link that poorly controlled diabetes causes complications. Seems obvious, but the evidence was always second-hand.
Abbreviation for the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial.
the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial. This was a 10-year study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. Over 1,400 people with type 1 diabetes followed either conventional therapy (usually, two insulin injections a day) or intensive therapy (multiple daily injections or an insulin pump). the study proved that tight blood glucose control reduces the risk of diabetic complications.
The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial, a 10-year controlled clinical trial for people with type 1 diabetes.
