Physical Inactivity from Youth to Adulthood and Risk of Impaired Glucose Metabolism

Conclusions Persistently physically inactive lifestyle from youth to adulthood is associated with increased risk of impaired glucose metabolism in adulthood. Importantly, a moderate increase in PA lowered the risk. The results highlight the importance of avoiding physically inactive lifestyle at all stages of life.

CONCLUSIONS: Decisions on what method to use should be based on considerations of the route of medication administration, the resources available, setting and aim of the assessment. Combining different methods may provide wider insights into adherence and persistence, including patient behaviour. PMID: 29770718 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Initial combination therapy with vildagliptin plus metformin in drug-naïve patients with T2DM: a 24-week real-life study from Asia. Curr Med Res Opin. 2018 May 15;:1-14 Authors: Chawla M, Kim TH, Mirasol RC, Faruque P, Cooke K, Hours-Zesiger P, Shete A Abstract AIMS: To assess the effectiveness and safety of vildagliptin/metformin initial combination therapy in drug-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS: INITIAL was a 24-week prospective, observational study in T2DM patients with glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) ≥7.5%, and prescribed vildagliptin/metformin as initial ...

CONCLUSION: Once-weekly semaglutide treatment is significantly better compared to SGLT-2is in achieving adequate glycemic control in T2D patients inadequately controlled with metformin monotherapy. PMID: 29764222 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we aimed to develop an experimental animal model for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) using a combination of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and high sucrose diet (HSD). Young male Wistar rats (20-30 g) were injected with MSG (2 or 4 mg/g, i.p. for 4 days). These rats were also fed an HSD, while the control group was fed a starch diet (SFD) for 150 days. Parameters assessed periodically were body weight, feed intake, blood glucose level, and oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), lipid profile, liver and kidney function tests, skeletal muscle glucose uptake, cognitive function tests, and microvascular changes using i...

This is the first study to retrospectively evaluate the efficacy and safety of Gla-300 in Japanese type 1 and 2 diabetes patients in a routine clinical setting. Methods We analyzed 20 type 1 diabetes patients and 62 typ...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewCausality has been demonstrated for few of the many putative risk factors for type 2 diabetes (T2D) emerging from observational epidemiology. Genetic approaches are increasingly being used to infer causality, and in this review, we discuss how genetic discoveries have shaped our understanding of the causal role of factors associated with T2D.Recent FindingsGenetic discoveries have led to the identification of novel potential aetiological factors of T2D, including the protective role of peripheral fat storage capacity and specific metabolic pathways, such as the branched-chain amino acid breakdo...

ConclusionThe majority of patients continued liraglutide after a switch from insulin therapy with on average no change in glycemic control and decrease of body weight. HbA1c levels at baseline, duration of insulin therapy, and duration of diabetes were predictive of reaching glycemic control on liraglutide alone. In current practice this also indicates which patients on insulin can reduce their insulin dose after adding a GLP-1 receptor agonist.Plain Language SummaryPlain language summary available for this article.

ConclusionsMortality due to cardiac causes was significantly higher than that due to non-cardiac causes in patients with ITDM who had undergone PCI. The same conclusion could be drawn from analyses focused on different follow-up periods, types of coronary stents, and type of study data used.
