Neonatal diabetes is a form of diabetes that occurs in the first 6 months of life. Infants with Neonatal Diabetes do not produce enough insulin, leading to an increase in blood glucose. Neonatal Diabetes is often mistaken for the much more common type 1 diabetes. Fran Ashcroft has international reputation for her work on insulin secretion, type II diabetes and neonatal diabetes. Her work has helped to enable children born with diabetes to switch from insulin injections to tablet therapy.
