Saliva test could improve diabetes control and treatment
A simple saliva sample could replace blood tests to assess and monitor diabetes, finds a new study. The most comprehensive analysis of proteins in saliva to date finds that these proteins reflect high blood sugar and associated disease processes in children and adolescents with uncontrolled type 1 diabetes, long before the appearance of clinical symptoms. This could lead to better prediction and prevention of long-term complications of the disease.
