CONCLUSIONS: In patients with T2DM and CKD, SGLT2 inhibitors have a decreased glucose-lowering effect compared to patients without CKD. Renal benefits among patients with CKD are similar to those without CKD and include a significant reduction in albuminuria and reduced incidence of worsening albuminuria. Given that CKD and T2DM are both associated with increased cardiovascular risk, we believe these agents should considered as preferred add-on agents in most patients with uncontrolled T2DM and eGFR>30 ml/min/1.73m2. Ongoing studies will provide additional information as to whether these agents should be added to the cu...

CONCLUSIONS: Only women showed an income-based gradient in diabetes. Monitoring income gradient in diabetes is important in public health actions, even in older populations. Future longitudinal and intervention studies should evaluate the causal link of income to diabetes onset, determine the mechanisms of the potential sex differences in the income/diabetes association, and identify ways to mitigate the income-based inequality.

Authors: Almekhlafi MA, Holodinsky JK, Hill MD, Kamal N, Goyal M Abstract INTRODUCTION: The dawn of endovascular stroke therapy has reshaped stroke care. Eligible patients need to be rushed to capable centers for intervention. This may entail bypassing closer hospitals that could confirm the diagnosis, administer thrombolytic therapy, then transfer patients for intervention. This has created a set of challenges: identifying endovascular candidates in the field, determining the best transport destination, and getting patients there quickly. Areas covered: This review provides a context for these emerging challenges....
