In the past 25 years, several large research studies in persons with prediabetes and diabetes have led to a great deal of important, scientifically supported information. These studies have shown how to effectively prevent diabetes and its complications and how, in some persons with diabetes at high risk for cardiovascular disease, less intensive targets for blood glucose control may be safer. Some of the most important findings in diabetes prevention and blood glucose control are summarized here. This list does not include all studies to date but reveals those that have arguably had the greatest impact on the current management of diabetes.
