Our efforts on Wolfram may lead to a breakthrough in the treatment of diabetes

Wolfram is the most difficult form of diabetes because patients suffer from other symptoms in addition to diabetes. It is a 24/7 job to manage Type 1 diabetes. On top of that, patients with Wolfram syndrome need to manage other conditions, including diabetes insipidus, bladder problems, mood swings and etc. It is almost like having multiple 24/7 jobs. There is an urgent need to develop therapeutics for Wolfram syndrome.

We keep on saying, “a cure for Wolfram syndrome can lead to a cure for diabetes.” Both Type 1 (absolute insulin deficiency) and Type 2 (relative insulin deficiency) Diabetes increase dramatically in U.S. youth. Our efforts on Wolfram may lead to a breakthrough in the treatment of diabetes.

Thank you for reading this. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Take care,
