Conclusion: Children with extreme insulin resistance had high prevalence of thyroid nodules, which were not associated with metreleptin treatment. Patients with homozygous INSR mutation had thyromegaly, which may be a novel phenotypic feature of this disease. Further studies are needed to determine the etiology of thyroid abnormalities in patients with extreme insulin resistance. PMID: 30657911 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusioniGlarLixi has a safety profile that is consistent with that of its two active components insulin glargine and lixisenatide, with no signals for pancreatitis or thyroid C  cell tumors, and no black-box warning for iGlarLixi. There were no unexpected safety findings; iGlarLixi had beneficial effects on glycemic control, with no increased risk of hypoglycemia, despite a greater glycated hemoglobin A1c reduction. In addition, there were also fewer gastrointestinal AEs associated with iGlarLixi compared with lixisenatide alone.FundingSanofi US Inc.
