In this report, we looked at opioid medication use following discharge after radical prostatectomy. We found that 77% of opioid pain medication prescribed was unused, with 84% of patients using less than half of their prescription. Prescribing more opioids was associated with greater use; only 9% of patients appropriately disposed of leftover medication.

Authors: Pintaudi B, Di Vieste G, Corrado F, Lucisano G, Giunta L, D'Anna R, Di Benedetto A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Myo-inositol supplementation prevents gestational diabetes (GDM) in women at risk and reduces insulin resistance in women with GDM. No data are available about its effect on glucose variability. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a supplementation of myo-inositol on glucose variability in women with GDM. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Myo-inositol effect on glucose variability was studied in a pilot case-control study involving 12 consecutive pregnant women (median age 34 years, 25.0% insulin...

Investigation for TGF-β1 expression in type 2 diabetes and protective effects of TGF-β1 on osteoblasts under high glucose environment. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2018 Jan;22(19):6500-6506 Authors: Wang WD, Cheng BZ, Kang WB, Zheng RW, Cai YL, Wang XJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: The occurrence rate of delayed fracture healing in diabetes mellitus patients is high. Transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) is an important regulatory factor in bone tissue repair and regeneration. However, TGF-β1 expression and its function in diabetic patient fracture have not been fully elucidated. PATI...

CONCLUSIONS: Compelling experimental and human work has highlighted the close association connection between endoneurial microangiopathy and diabetic polyneuropathy. Future investigations will need to investigate the role of microvascular factors both in the periphery and the central nervous system in the pathogenesis of painful DPN.
