This study, titled “UK First NHS EndoBarrier Service for Advanced Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity: One-Year Outcomes in All Patients Treated,” is based on data collected from the first implant in October 2014 to the last explant in November 2018, a total patient population of 61. The primary outcome of HbA1c, weight, CVD risk factors and alanine aminotransferase (ALT — a liver fat measure) show a significant reduction at explant compared to baseline values. Of the 61 patients studied, 35 were on insulin prior to treatment. At explant, 10 of the 35 (28.6%) discontinued their...

SUMMARY Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) are drugs that act by maintaining glycosuria. Recent studies have shown promising effects of these in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). However, there may be an increased risk of developing urinary tract infections (UTIs) in patients treated with these. Our study aims to analyze the association between the risk of UTI in patients treated with SGLT2i. A systematic review of the literature was carried out by randomized clinical trials, totalizing at the end of the selection 23 articles that were statistically evaluated. The incidence of UTI was general...

New research reveals that the only two medications approved for pediatric type 2 diabetes do not prevent rapid progression of prediabetes or recent onset type 2 diabetes in young people with the disease; however, analyses comparing metabolic tests of adults in a companion study and the youth study participants are helping scientists understand how the disease differs with age, which may one day lead to better treatment approaches.

Experts have issued a new set of guidelines on the best ways to prevent first heart attacks, strokes and heart failure — and for the first time, they focus squarely on the patient. The new guidelines recognize how doctors can support people to not only address their medical risk factors, but also to change their behaviors and lifestyles in order to reduce their risk. The latest revisions to the guidelines, issued by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA), were announced at the annual meeting of the ACC. They are intended to help doctors figure out a patient’s risk of h...

GI Dynamics (ASX:GID) said a retrospective study of its EndoBarrier device for patients with type 2 diabetes and obesity shows a significant reduction in HbA1c, weight, liver fat and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risks as well as a reduction in the need for insulin in some patients. The EndoBarrier device is a plastic gut sleeve designed to prevent the absorption of nutrients from food as it exits the stomach and enters the intestinal tract, according to the Lexington, Mass.-based company. Get the full story on our sister site, Medical Design &Outsourcing. The post GI Dynamics touts results of U.K. study appeared first on MassDevice.

Mir, Zeba Siddiqi, Alina Zaidi, ZeashanHaider Zaidi, Farzana MahdiAbstractBackgroundDiabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder which can affects the body's ability to produce or use of the hormone insulin leads to high blood sugar levels and it may serves as a host of complications. Emerging evidence suggests that common and rare genetic polymorphisms can influence the risk of developing diabetic complications. We attempt to evaluate the association of (rs7903146 and rs290487) variants of TCF7L2 g...

(CNN) — If you’re a healthy older adult looking for ways to reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke, don’t turn to that age-old standby: daily low-dose aspirin. It’s no longer recommended as a preventative for older adults who don’t have a high risk or existing heart disease, according to guidelines announced Sunday by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. “For the most part, we are now much better at treating risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes and especially high cholesterol,” said North Carolina cardiologist Dr. Kevin Campbell, who wa...
