Kids with Type 2: Study Report Released

There’s a growing epidemic of obesity and diabetes in our children.

Results of a ten-year study involving children with type-2 diabetes in Oklahoma and nationwide have just been announced with significant surprises. Researchers at Harold Hamm Diabetes Center were not only the architects of the study, they also enrolled more participants than any other site in the U.S.

While additional study is needed, researchers at Harold Hamm say Oklahoma should be especially proud of the role it played in this important research. The support of the community, referring pediatricians statewide and Oklahoma’s Native American communities proved invaluable, they said.

The research is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
