Principal Investigator: Dr Yong Chen
Approved Research ID: 95552
Approval date: December 6th 2022

Lay summary

The project aims to study the potential relationships between diabetes and its complications and common chronic disorders (such as hypertension, COPD, CVD, and osteoporosis). Whether hyperglycemia has any influence on chronical. Do people with diabetes report more likely to chronical diseases, compared to those without diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a common disease that is caused by a combination of multiple genetic, environmental and behavioral factors. In order to identify the relationship of diabetes and chronical diseases, it is necessary to explore the long-term hyperglycemia effects on the development and outcomes of chronical diseases from the perspective of population charasteristics, genetic, biomarkers.

The duration of this project is approximately 3 years. The results of this project will reveal the potential associations between diabetes and its complications and chronic diseases. Therefore, these findings could tell us about possible causes or factors of the development and outcomes of chronical disease, thereby providing more information for clinicians and therapists to prevent the happening and decrease the risk of death from these disorders.
