50-Year Medalist Study


​The purpose of this study is to document the presence of eye, nerve and kidney complications related to diabetes, as well as to examine DNA and substances in the blood and urine of people with diabetes for 50 years or more. This is to identify factors which may protect from large and small vessel complications, and potentially lead to protection from aging-related diseases.
