Thousands sought for major diabetes study

A major Tayside-based diabetes study into how the disease develops is looking to recruit up to 6,000 new patients from across Scotland.

The GoDARTS study seeks Scottish diabetes patients who have been diagnosed within the past two years.

Researchers hope to identify why there is a variation in the way diabetes progresses in different patients.

Professor of diabetic medicine at Dundee University, Ewan Pearson, who is leading the study, said: "This is a new phase of recruitment to GoDARTS which will give us valuable insight into why diabetes is more aggressive in some patients than others, and how we can predict who is most at risk from diabetes when they are diagnosed."
