Targeted Glycemic Control for Adult Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in the Acute Care Setting

Publication date: Available online 8 February 2018Source: Canadian Journal of DiabetesAuthor(s): Ali Pourmand, Maryann Mazer-Amirshahi, Amy Caggiula, Aria Nawab, Christopher Payette, Samuel JohnsonAbstractDiabetes mellitus and complications arising from the disease are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. With increasing prevalence over the past 50 years and an estimated 20% of health-care spending dedicated to the disease, diabetes is considered by many to be a true public health emergency. Several protocols and management options exist to maximize glycemic control in the ambulatory setting, but the optimal glucose level in critically and noncritically ill inpatients is still debated. This review examines the evidence behind differing degrees of glycemic control across a variety of hospital settings and clinical scenarios. Patients presenting to the emergency department who are found to be hyperglycemic pose additional management challenges for clinicians. In this setting, no consensus exists for optimal serum glucose level and safe discharge parameters.RésuméLe diabète sucré et les complications découlant de la maladie sont l'une des principales causes de morbidité et de mortalité dans le monde. Avec une prévalence croissante au cours des 50 dernières années, et 20% des dépenses de santé estimées consacrées à la maladie, le diabète est consid&eacu...

Authors: Yahaya TO, Ufuoma SB Abstract Single gene mutations have been implicated in the pathogenesis of a form of diabetes mellitus (DM) known as the maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY). However, there are diverse opinions on the suspect genes and pathophysiology, necessitating the need to review and communicate the genes to raise public awareness. We used the Google search engine to retrieve relevant information from reputable sources such as PubMed and Google Scholar. We identified 14 classified MODY genes as well as three new and unclassified genes linked with MODY. These genes are fundamentally embedde...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major contributor to the morbidity and mortality associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). With T2DM growing in pandemic proportions, there will be profound healthcare implications of CVD in person with diabetes. The ideal drugs to improve outcomes in T2DM are those having antiglycemic efficacy in addition to cardiovascular (CV) safety, which has to be determined in appropriately designed CV outcome trials as mandated by regulatory agencies. Available evidence is largely supportive of metformin’s CV safety and potential CVD risk reduction effects, whereas sulfonylureas are eit...

CONCLUSIONS: This pilot study demonstrated an improved medication reconciliation process with pharmacist involvement, expanding the body of evidence that pharmacists can enhance TOC management in an inpatient setting. These results highlight the utility of a pharmacist in the implementation and refinement of TOC services and provides impetus for a team-based approach when patients experience a TOC.
