Researcher studying biological factors of blood glucose variability wins 2013 IDF Europe Prize in Diabetes for Young Researcher
Date:11/13/2013

BRUSSELS, November 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Doctor Krisztina Lukacs of the Semmelweis University, Budapest (Hungary) was presented with the 2013 IDF Europe Prize in Diabetes for Young Researcher today at an award ceremony at the European Parliament in Brussels. The prize was awarded in recognition of her outstanding scientific work in the field of genetics and diabetes.

An internist and diabetologist, Krisztina Lukacs always had a strong interest in the role played by genetic factors in the development of diabetes. "While treating people with diabetes, I have witnessed a dramatic increase in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in Hungary, as it is also the case in most European countries. One way to understand the mechanisms that cause diabetes is to study the genetic background of the disease. This is why I always saw a great opportunity in using the latest technologies in genetic testing to help understand what causes diabetes", she says. Since 2006, Doctor Lukacs has taken part in several patient-oriented clinical and basic research programmes focusing on the epidemiology, genetics and other mechanisms causing type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Doctor Lukacs has currently embarked on a large population-based clinical study to determine the biological and environmental factors of severe hypoglycemia in people with type 1 diabetes. "The important variations in blood glucose levels that are partly caused by hypoglycemia can increase the risk of developing health complications, leading to a poor quality of life. These variations can also be considered the greatest barrier to achieve and maintain good metabolic control," she explains. "At the moment we have only limited knowledge about the possible role of genetic and environmental factors in glucose variability. In ever
