The Transportation Challenge in Diabetes Care

One of the biggest barriers to good diabetes care in this country is... wait for it... just getting there.Yep, never-mind having good insurance; for many across the country the biggest challenge is simply transportation to the healthcare they need...

Authors: Zhang S, Liu L, Huang YQ, Lo K, Feng YQ Abstract Background: It is uncertain how serum uric acid (SUA) associated with all-cause mortality among people with normal weight, hence was explored in this study.Methods: We enrolled participants from 1999 to 2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) that had mortality status through 31 December 2015. We estimated adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for all-cause mortality using Cox proportional hazard models, and propensity score analyses were performed. We also performed restricted cubic splines to demonstrate the ...

Authors: Magee DE, Singal RK Abstract Our objective is to provide an up-to-date summary of current literature on the indications for androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), ways in which ADT is used, and the main side effects associated with its use. MEDLINE (Pubmed) was searched for relevant papers published from database inception to May 1, 2019 for studies evaluating the use of ADT and its associated adverse events. ADT is a mainstay in the treatment of prostate cancer and is used throughout the disease course. While predominantly used in the metastatic setting, ADT has a role in the treatment of localized disease a...

Conversely, establishing limitations in proliferative potential may be important to achieve functional maturity as well as to prevent abnormal growths after transplantation of stem cell derived p...

AbstractThe aim of this research was to differentiate dapagliflozin, empagliflozin, and canagliflozin based on their capacity to inhibit sodium ‐glucose cotransporter (SGLT) 1 and 2 in patients with type 2 diabetes, using a previously developed quantitative systems pharmacology model of renal glucose filtration, reabsorption, and excretion. The analysis was based on pooled, mean study‐level data on 24‐hour urinary glucose excretion (U GE), average daily plasma glucose and estimated glomerular filtration rate collected from phase 2 clinical trials of SGLT2 inhibitors. Variations in filtered glucose across clinical stu...

ConclusionsThis is the first study demonstrating that twice/day insulin glargine reduced the rate of predose hyperglycemia without increasing the risk of hypoglycemia in critically ill patients. A large randomized study is needed to confirm the safety and efficacy of twice/day glargine in the critically ill.
