The optimization of glycemic control is a critical strategy to limit the deleterious effects of diabetes among patients with diabetes mellitus (DM), aiming to prevent premature mortality and diabetes-related complications, especially the microvascular diseases. However, the use of antidiabetic medicines also increases the risk of hypoglycemia as a common side effect, particularly for intensive glucose-lowering regimens such as insulin and sulphonylurea[1,2]. Although most hypoglycemia is mild and self-managed with symptoms such as sweating, dizziness or headache, there are some serious hypoglycemic episodes which may resul...

Authors: Diao H, Yu X, Li C, Guo Y, Shen B, Zhao W Abstract We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effects and safety of activators of glucokinase (GKAs) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). 11 RCTs, including 2,429 participants, are enrolled in our study. According to different doses, we divided the studies into 3 groups: low-dose group, medium-dose group and high-dose group for subgroup analysis. There were decreases of HbA1c in all dose group (WMD = -0.27, 95%CI (-0.51~ -0.03), Z = 2.17, p = 0.03; WMD = -0.37, 95%CI (-0.58~ -0.16), Z = 3.41, p = 0.0006; WMD = -0.60, 95%CI (...

Abstract PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of exenatide once weekly (EOW) and to determine predictors of treatment response and drug discontinuation in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) followed up for 18 months in a real-world setting. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included patients with T2DM who initiated EOW 2 mg between 2014 and 2019 in an outpatient diabetes clinic in Italy. Data were collected at baseline and at follow-up visits (6, 12, and 18 months after EOW). We estimated glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and body weight mean change...

Abstract Ketogenic diets have been proposed as a non-pharmacological strategy for the management of several chronic conditions. Their efficacy and safety have been evaluated in the field of neurology, oncology and endocrinology for disorders including cancer, dementia, drug-resistant epilepsy, migraines, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The nutritional requirements of these subjects are expected to differ significantly. Indeed, although all ketogenic diets restrict carbohydrates, each intervention is characterized by a specific daily calorie intake, macronutrient composition and dur...
