USC researchers present diabetes findings at American Diabetes Association Scientific Sessions
Date:6/5/2009

New Orleans, LA June 4, 2009---Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California will present new findings at the American Diabetes Association's scientific sessions June 5 9 in New Orleans, LA.

Keck School of Medicine of USC faculty, students and post-doctoral fellows will present sessions including helping diabetes patients avoid "post exercise hypoglycemia," the role of pancreatic beta cells in the progression of diabetes, and how the body becomes aware of low blood sugar. The presentations comprise four symposium lectures, 11 poster presentations, 10 oral presentations and three late-breaking poster presentations.

Researchers are available at the meeting to discuss their findings and provide expert commentary on diabetes research.

Exercise

Anne Peters, M.D., professor of medicine and director, USC Westside Center for Diabetes will discuss her research on the management of diabetes treatment, the role of exercise in treatment of diabetes, and patients' vulnerability to post-exercise hypoglycemia.

Peters will discuss recommendations and guidelines including how long diabetes patients should exercise, what type of exercise is most beneficial, and timing medication to avoid a precipitous drop on blood sugar following workouts. The symposium will take place on Saturday, June 6 (Session: Fueling the Serious Athlete, Guidelines/Recommendations for the Prevention and Treatment of Exercise and Post-Exercise Induced Hypoglycemia).

Pancreatic Beta Cell Mass in Development of Diabetes

Tom Buchanan, M.D., professor of medicine, associate dean for clinical research, chief, division of endocrinology and diabetes, and program director for the General Clinical Research Center will discuss his research on the role of pancreatic beta cell mass in the regulation of blood sugar, and whether it is possible to modulate beta cell mass to prevent type 2 diabetes.
