Beyond basal-bolus insulin regimen: is it still the ultimate chance for therapy in diabetes?

All people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) need insulin to survive, with the hope to cut or slow down the devastating long-term micro and macrovascular complications. About one fourth of people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) uses insulin, either as the only antyhyperglycemic drug, or in combination with other glucose-lowering medications [1,2]. Every day, about 6 million diabetic people in the U.S. inject insulin to control their hyperglycemia.

Conclusions Supporting the mechanisms of NO bioavailability via exogenous application of iNOS and L-arginine significantly attenuated I/R-induced alterations in a skin flap rat model. This pharmacologic preconditioning could be an easy and effective interventional strategy to uphold conversation of L-arginine to NO even on ischemic and type 1 diabetic conditions.

ConclusionPatients with T1D have a higher risk of ST/FS fractures compared with sex- and age-matched controls. Since a proportion of ST/FS fractures are classified as AFFs, this could point towards the fact that AFFs also are increased in patients with T1D, but not T2D.

GreenfieldIndividuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) frequently fail to achieve glycemic goals and have excess cardiovascular risk and premature death. Adjunctive agents may play a role in reducing morbidity, mortality, and the adverse sequelae of insulin treatment. A surge in type 2 diabetes drug development has revealed agents with benefits beyond glucose lowering, including cardiovascular risk reduction. Could these benefits translate to T1D? Specific trials for T...

Conclusions: Our estimated rates of prevalence of GP in T1DM and T2DM indicate that GP is not a common clinical complication in these populations. Majority of EMRs that indicated a diagnosis of GP did not include any documentation of definitive diagnostic testing (EGD and/or GES).
