Smaller Pancreases In Diabetics

179

Using ultrasonography, researchers at the Armed Forces Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia have discovered that people who suffer from insulin deficiency, in either type I or insulin treated type 2 diabetes, have markedly smaller pancreases than non-diabetic control subjects and people with sulfonylurea treated type 2 diabetes.

This difference occurred regardless of age, obesity, or duration of diabetes.
