Glargine and liraglutide improved glycemic outcomes at 5 y vs. glimepiride or sitagliptin, while liraglutide reduced CV events vs. glargine, glimepiride, or sitagliptin
Although microvascular complications and death were not materially different among the four treatment groups in a recent trial, the results do allow inferences about the role of sulfonylureas and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors in practice, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.

In diabetes, some statins reduce non–HDL-C better than others vs. placebo
A review reaffirmed well-known information about the potency of commonly prescribed statins and suggested that non–high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) may be a better measure of cardiovascular risk than low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in patients on statins, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.

In type 2 diabetes, the BT-001 smartphone app reduced HbA1c more than a control app at 90 d
The availability of an app that delivers cognitive behavioral therapy to patients with diabetes could have meaningful clinical effects, but it remains to be seen whether behavior changes are sustained long-term, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.

In HFpEF, the benefit of empagliflozin on a composite of CV death or HF hospitalization at 26 mo did not vary by diabetes status
The combination of efficacy and safety data from a recent placebo-controlled trial and other research shows sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors to be an important treatment for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) regardless of patients' diabetes status, according to an ACP Journal Club commentary.

In T1DM, open-source automated insulin delivery increased glucose time in target vs. sensor-augmented pumps
A challenge to wider use of the open-source systems to manage type 1 diabetes (T1DM) is that they are not approved by the FDA and thus require clinicians to be willing to learn from and support their patients, said an ACP Journal Club commentary.

Antihypertensive drugs reduced risk for new-onset type 2 diabetes; effect varies by antihypertensive class
The results of this individual-patient data meta-analysis suggest that angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers should be first-line antihypertensive agents in patients with prediabetes, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.

In type 2 diabetes, SGLT2 inhibitors reduce all-cause, but not cardiovascular, mortality vs. GLP-1 RAs
A meta-analysis identified relative benefits of sodium–glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) based on individual cardiovascular and renal risks.

BP-lowering drugs reduced major CV events by similar amounts in patients with and without type 2 diabetes
The results of a large meta-analysis support the conclusion that degree of blood pressure (BP) lowering, rather than the drug used, is the prime driver of cardiovascular (CV) risk reduction from hypertension therapy, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.

In type 2 diabetes, SGLT2 inhibitors reduced risk for serious hyperkalemia without increasing hypokalemia
A reduction in hyperkalemia could allow use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin-receptor blockers, or aldosterone-receptor blockers in at-risk patients, justifying the prescribing of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.

Patients surviving COVID-19 had increased risk for incident diabetes vs. persons without COVID-19
Although the effect of COVID-19 on diabetes incidence is small, according to the study, the affected population could be large, given that many at-risk people have had acute COVID-19, an ACP Journal Club commentary said.
