The iCARE research study began in 2012 and is helping to answer some big questions so that we can provide better treatment for young people living with type 2 diabetes and minimize complications (like kidney disease). This cohort studies young people who get type 2 diabetes before they turn 18. We follow them when they are a child/youth and continue connecting into adulthood. We are asking questions like:
Why are young people with type 2 diabetes at risk for kidney damage?
How can this and other complications be prevented?
What social, emotional and physical health factors play a role?
