Basing hospitalized diabetes patients' postdischarge prescriptions on an HbA1c taken at admission was associated with improvements in glycemic control, a recent study found.
Two recent studies looked at cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in women with type 2 diabetes, finding that fenofibrate may be associated with lowered risk and sulfonylureas with increased risk.
