Incorporating intensive weight management with a low-carb diet into standard group medical visits for patients with diabetes “should be considered as an alternative, noninferior approach for glycemic management that has additional clinical
A recent scientific statement on diabetes and heart failure summarizes the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and impact of diabetes on outcomes in heart failure; reviews pharmacological therapy and lifestyle modification; highlights the value
Patients with type 1 diabetes who were randomly assigned to insulin treatment with a closed-loop system spent more time in the target glycemic range than those assigned to a sensor-augmented pump.
The results highlight the underappreciated burden of diabetic foot hospitalizations not associated with amputation, the authors said.
Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), with either an insulin pump or multiple daily injections, was associated with sustained improvements in HbA1c levels compared to self-monitoring of blood glucose, according to a small randomized trial.
In a longitudinal study of 21,531 patients, those in poor or intermediate health at age 75 years were more likely to use insulin than those in good health (29.4% and 27.5% versus 10.5%, respectively) and less likely to discontinue it during follow-up
Patients with diabetes and obesity who had metabolic surgery were matched in a 1:5 ratio to those who received usual care, with incidence of a major cardiovascular event (MACE) as the primary outcome.
While we could not determine causality between insulin and mortality, we highlight a vulnerable population which needs additional resources in the discharge transition period,” the authors wrote.
Compared to young adults without diabetes, those with diabetes were more likely to have obesity, elevated lipids, or hypertension and were less likely to report being physically active or consuming a healthy diet.
probably indicates a more accelerated intimal hyperplasia, greater degree of vascular inflammation and/or endothelial dysfunction, and increased plaque vulnerability in insulin-treated diabetic patients, and highlights the need for
