They pointed out that almost 50% of patients with diabetes have severe periodontitis and that their findings “highlight the potential to improve metabolic control and possibly diabetes outcomes by addressing poor
The industry-funded PIONEER 3 trial randomized adults whose type 2 diabetes was uncontrolled with metformin, with or without sulfonylurea, to receive either oral sitagliptin (100 mg/d) or oral semaglutide (3, 7, or 14 mg/d).
While both procedures were associated with high rates of type 2 diabetes remission, the rate of remission five years after surgery was about 10% higher in patients who had gastric bypass than in those who had sleeve gastrectomy.
British patients with type 1 diabetes were enrolled in group training courses that taught flexible intensive insulin treatment and then randomized to an insulin pump or multiple daily injections and followed for two years.
The trial of semaglutide included 3,297 patients with type 2 diabetes, 83% of whom had established cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, or both.
Glycemic control as measured by HbA1c level remains strongly and independently associated with cardiovascular outcomes in high-risk patients with diabetes on statin therapy.
While the proportion of U.S. adults with diabetes who attained glycemic, blood pressure, and lipid control increased during the study period, there was a lack of progress related to dietary guidelines.
The Liraglutide Effect and Action in Diabetes: Evaluation of Cardiovascular Outcome Results (LEADER) trial, which was funded by Novo Nordisk and the National Institutes of Health, randomized 9,340 patients ages 50 years and older to 1.8 mg of
Researchers studied an early intervention model in which an inpatient diabetes team electronically identified patients with hyperglycemia and aimed to provide bedside management within 24 hours of admission, compared with a referral-based
Clinicians should be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of diabetes apps and be able to advise patients on their use, according to the European Association for the Study of Diabetes and the American Diabetes Association.
