The results highlight the importance of psychosocial interventions for at-risk patients, they concluded.
The studied risk factors were HbA1c level, LDL cholesterol level, presence of albuminuria, smoking status, and blood pressure.
These recommendation are part of a consensus report by the two organizations that highlights major areas of care for clinicians managing adults with type 1 diabetes, focusing primarily on current and
A study conducted in Australia found that general practitioners with specialization in diabetes care and subspecialist-led clinics reduced HbA1c levels by similar amounts in patients with complex type 2 diabetes.
In a retrospective observational study, patients with prediabetes were assigned to a risk category for diabetes based on presence and severity of insulin resistance, impaired beta-cell function, and hyperglycemia, then treated accordingly.
Among patients with coronary artery disease, severity and frequency of hypoglycemia were associated with increased levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T, although the association was attenuated in adjusted analyses.
They also highlight the need for further RCTs assessing the effect of metabolic surgery on microvascular diabetes outcomes.
For patients without diabetes, predictors of myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery included a casual glucose level of more than 6.86 mmol/L (124 mg/dL) and a fasting glucose level of more than 6.41 mmol/L (116 mg/dL).
The American Diabetes Association calls for increasing transparency across the entire supply chain, streamlining the approval process for biosimilars, lowering or removing patient cost-sharing, and increasing access to health care coverage for
Patients on the intermittent energy restriction diet ate 500 to 600 kcal/d on two nonconsecutive days each week and followed their usual diet on the other days. They were compared to a group eating 1,200 to 1,500 kcal/d.
