Type 1 & Retinopathy (FAME)

Have you been diagnosed with Diabetic Retinopathy? (FAME)

We are testing the effect of a cholesterol lowering drug for its effectiveness in treating retinopathy in patients with Type 1 Diabetes. This drug, known as a fenofibrate, is already approved for treatment in Type 2 Diabetes, and it is hoped this study may expand treatment to cover Type 1 Diabetes as well.
