While additional study is needed, researchers at the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center say Oklahoma should be especially proud of the role it played in this important research. They said the support of the community, referring pediatricians statewide and Oklahoma's Native American communities proved invaluable.
The research is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
