Are Screening Programs for Diabetes Effective?

By Molly Grady

Screening programs for Diabetes do not appear to lower death rates.

That's the finding of a large trial in England.

Researchers divided more than 20,000 patients into three groups -- one was screened for type two diabetes and then received routine care.

A second group received intensive management after screening, and the third group didn't get screened at all.

After a 10 year period, there was no difference in mortality rates between the groups.
