The Complications group aims to improve the prevention and management of diabetes-related complications. This group will focus on the prevention and management of the microvascular and macrovascular complications of diabetes.
It will recognise the need to understand the underlying pathogenic processes of vascular complications, in order to achieve this.
It will cover – but not be limited to – nerve and lower-limb related issues, retinopathy, kidney complications and cardiovascular diseases.
If you would like to share your views with CSG6 on where research into complications of diabetes should be focused, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
