Brief Summary:
This research is being done to find out if significant changes in blood glucose cause bad outcomes in patients with diabetes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Type I Diabetes Procedure: Oral glucose tolerance test for Phase I

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 0 participants
Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Epigenetic Modifications Induced by Glycemic Variability
Study Start Date : January 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2014

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Phase I Procedure: Oral glucose tolerance test for Phase I
Oral glucose tolerance test for Diabetic patients in phase I



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate blood sugar variability in Type I diabetics for differences in epigenetic signatures between Type I diabetics with little glycemic variability as compared to those with more pronounced glycemic changes. [ Time Frame: 7 days ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Whole blood
