Around 25% of the adult Type 1 diabetes population is in persistent poor glycaemic control and thus at increased risk of developing microvascular complications. We here discuss correlates of long-standing poor glycaemic control and review the efficacy of clinical strategies designed to overcome persistent poor control. Only a few studies have identified determinants and correlates of long-standing poor glycaemic control in Type 1 diabetes. There is some evidence implicating genetic factors, as… CONTINUE READING
