The results highlight the heterogeneity of type 2 diabetes and may help explain the differences in disease progression and response to glucose-lowering treatment seen in clinical practice, an accompanying comment
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.
An industry-sponsored phase 3 trial found statistically significant improvements in HbA1c level among patients with type 2 diabetes who had inadequate glycemic control on insulin glargine and were randomly assigned to subcutaneous tirzepatide once
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.
