Impact of type 2 diabetes mellitus on in-hospital-mortality after major cardiovascular events in Spain (2002 –2014)

Diabetes mellitus has long been associated with cardiovascular events. Nevertheless, the higher burden of traditional cardiovascular risk factors reported in high-income countries is offset by a more widesprea...

Abstract Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and thyroid diseases among type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients. Methods: This was a cohort case and control study, 546 T2DM patients and 546 control study participants were enrolled, aged between 25 and 65 years. The subjects were also investigated for fasting blood glucose levels (FBG), post prandial glucose (PPG,) glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), T3, T4, and presence of other comorbid conditions. Thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsy was suggested to patients wh...

Authors: He F, Zhao Z, Liu Y, Lu L, Fu Y Abstract Purpose: To investigate the impact of disease duration on the ocular surface during the course of type 2 diabetes mellitus compared with nondiabetic controls. Methods: One hundred twenty diabetic patients were divided into three groups according to disease duration: less than 5 years, 5-10 years, and over 10 years. All eyes were imaged using a corneal topographer (Oculus Keratograph 5M). Tear film measurements and meibography were also recorded. Meibomian gland changes were scored from 0 to 6 (meiboscore). Results: The noninvasive breakup time first (NIKBUT-...

CONCLUSIONS: Based on clinical trial data, the present analysis suggests that IDegLira is associated with improved clinical outcomes and cost savings compared with treatment with insulin glargine U100 plus insulin aspart for patients with type 2 diabetes not achieving glycemic control on basal insulin in the US. Therefore, IDegLira is likely to be considered dominant (cost saving and more effective) and consequently highly cost-effective in the US setting. PMID: 30114954 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Globally, there is an increase in the burden of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM): the age-standardized prevalence of T2DM has increased from 4.3% to 9.0% among men and from 5.0% to 7.9% among women in the last four decades [1]. T2DM is also responsible for about 2 million deaths every year worldwide [2,3] and USD 825 billion are estimated to be spent in T2DM-related healthcare [1,4].

CONCLUSION: In this study, pancreatic steatosis was significantly associated with DR in non-obese patients with T2DM. Further studies are necessary to clarify the causal relationship between pancreatic steatosis and the development of DR. PMID: 30113148 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Park SY, Chin SO, Rhee SY, Oh S, Woo JT, Kim SW, Chon S Abstract BACKGROUND: Carotid artery intima medial thickness (IMT), brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), and ankle-brachial index (ABI) are commonly used surrogate markers of subclinical atherosclerosis in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) is a complement to the baPWV, which is affected by blood pressure. However, it is unclear which marker is the most sensitive predictor of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). METHODS: This was a retrospective non-interventional study that enrol...

CONCLUSION: A substantial number of subjects with NFG at baseline still remained in the NFG range at the time of diabetes diagnosis. A family history of diabetes and fasting insulin and glucose levels were associated with diabetes diagnosis during 10 years of follow-up; however, fasting glucose level was not associated with diabetes risk within the relatively short-term follow-up period of 5 years in subjects with NFG.
