Newswise — Experts from The Endocrine Society are available to speak with journalists about the health issues surrounding diabetes care and the management of glucose levels. Experts can also explain the significance of the recent review of available data from the ACCORD (Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes) Trial, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, which has led investigators to halt a portion of the study due to safety concerns.
