TYPE 2 diabetes is a lifelong condition, however, if spotted early enough and properly managed, some experts claim the condition can be reversed. If your breath smells a certain way it could mean your blood sugar levels are high, and you may have type 2 diabetes.

Authors: Müller-Wieland D, Schütt K, Brandts J, Marx N Abstract A paradigm change in the treatment of type 2 diabetes has recently emerged due to the introduction of new oral antidiabetic agents. Cardiovascular endpoint studies confirmed the safety of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and a cardiovascular protective effect for glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists and sodium-glucose linked transporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors. Furthermore, SGLT‑2 inhibitors reduce the risk for heart failure and have a renoprotective effect. These studies led to changes in clinical recommendations a...

Conclusion: Multiple strengths of glimepiride and metformin fixed dose combinations are beneficial in T2DM, irrespective of age, duration of diabetes, BMI, diabetes complications, use of concomitant medications such as insulin and statin. Glimepiride and metformin fixed dose combinations were not associated with a significant risk of hypoglycemia. PMID: 32602682 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Sano M Abstract Despite good control of all risk factors for myocardial infarction, including blood glucose, blood pressure, lipids, and smoking, the probability of heart failure is significantly higher in diabetic patients than in healthy individuals. This observational study shows that the current treatment guidelines, which focus on the prevention of myocardial infarction, are insufficient in preventing heart failure development. Now, understanding the mechanisms of heart failure in diabetic patients and developing treatment guidelines based on these mechanisms are urgently needed. Instead of narrowly v...

CONCLUSION: We concluded that vimentin deficiency prevents obesity and insulin resistance in mice fed an HFD and suggest vimentin as a central mediator linking obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. PMID: 32602277 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhu L, Chandran SR, Tan WB, Xin X, Goh SY, Gardner DSL Abstract BACKGROUND: There is little longitudinal information on psychological burden and metabolic outcomes in young adults with diabetes (YAD) in Asia. We aimed to evaluate the association between psychological status and glycemia at baseline and 2 years following transition in a cohort of YAD in Singapore. METHODS: Subjects with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), aged 17 to 25 years, were recruited from the YAD clinic in Singapore General Hospital. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression and Problem Areas for Diabet...

Authors: Lee SH, Min KW, Lee BW, Jeong IK, Yoo SJ, Kwon HS, Choi YH, Yoon KH Abstract BACKGROUND: Glycemic variability is associated with the development of diabetic complications and hypoglycemia. However, the effect of sodium-glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors on glycemic variability is controversial. We aimed to examine the effect of dapagliflozin as an add-on therapy to insulin on the glycemic variability assessed using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus. METHODS: In this multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized study, 84 subjects received 10...

ConclusionsThe Persian version of the ADA questionnaire had good sensitivity and fair specificity for pre-diabetes diagnosis among rural adults at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The study provided evidence for the ADA questionnaire as a valid and reliable tool for identifying pre-diabetes in a rural area. Identifying rural residents in the early stage of developing diabetes with a simple and accurate instrument without the need for a FBG test contributes to controlling the disease in areas with limited access to health services.Trial registrationThe study is not a trial; the registration number is not applicable.
