Publication date: Available online 27 April 2018 Source:Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases Author(s): O. Vaccaro, M. Masulli, G. Riccardi TOSCA.IT is an institutional, non-industry-supported, head-to-head study comparing long term cardiovascular effects, efficacy and safety of two antidiabetes drugs (pioglitazone vs sulphonylureas) used in combination with metformin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The study results show that in the absence of clinically evident cardiovascular disease both treatment strategies represent suitable alternatives; however, in consideration of the greater durability of ...

ConclusionsThis was the first study to develop a method for transforming existing patient experience literature into a creative tool for health improvement. The Health Experience Insight Cards collate the diverse experiences of over 300 people living with diabetes in Australia, from 13 studies. Health improvement teams can use the ‘Living with Diabetes Edition’ cards or they can follow this pragmatic method to create their own cards focused on other health experiences to facilitate person-focused health improvements.

CONCLUSIONS: The selected quantitative parameters tend to increase or decrease in diabetic patients, in agreement with previous studies. Among the parameters, capillary density may represent the most sensitive metric for the detection of very early diabetic changes. Further improvement of the method could contribute to the development of an automated processing tool for capillary network quantitative assessment. PMID: 29784153 [PubMed - in process]
