ConclusionsThe NEED study showed that new insulin users of either basal or premix HM insulin have many unmet needs in the first 6 –12 months of treatment. This confirms that in real-life settings novel insulins should be considered in the management of T2DM to reduce the number of symptomatic hypoglycemic events and reach a better HbA1c level.FundingSanofi, Serbia.

AbstractIntroductionChronic inflammation, as observed in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), is associated with complications. How chronic inflammation influences body composition in patients with T2DM remains to be investigated. Our study aimed to evaluate the difference of skeletal muscle mass between patients with and without inflammation indicated by plasma high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP).MethodsPatients with T2DM were recruited from primary health care in Sleman district, Indonesia. Measurements were performed to obtain information on body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, waist-to-height ratio, ...

In this study, the therapeutic effects of buckwheat hull flavonoids (BHFs) on type 2 diabetes db/db mice were investigated. After administration by BHFs nine weeks, body weight, visceral index, biochemical indicators in serum and in liver were detected. The liver pathological changes were observed under microscopic observations. Real-time quantitative PCR was used to detect IRS-1, PI3kα, AKT2, SREBP-1c, FAS, ACC1 mRNA expression in liver. The results showed that insulin resistance significantly reduced after the BHFs treatment. BHFs could reduce the TG, TC, vLDL-c, FFA levels in serum and TG, TC levels in liver and p...

Abstract: Prediabetes continues to be a national and worldwide health concern, affecting 84 million adults in the US. Early identification and intervention have been successful in delaying and/or preventing the progression to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Nonpharmacologic treatment of prediabetes is paramount, although pharmacologic treatment is appropriate in high-risk patients. In an attempt to curb the increasing prevalence of T2DM, recognizing the importance of identifying and managing prediabetes should remain in the national healthcare forefront.
