Health status and hypoglycemia with insulin degludec versus insulin glargine: a 2-year trial in insulin-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes.

Health status and hypoglycemia with insulin degludec versus insulin glargine: a 2-year trial in insulin-naïve patients with type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Obes Metab. 2014 Feb 4; Authors: Rodbard H, Cariou B, Zinman B, Handelsman Y, Wolden M, Rana A, Mathieu C Abstract Insulin degludec (IDeg) is a new basal insulin with an ultra-long and stable glucose-lowering effect. We compared once-daily IDeg and insulin glargine (IGlar), both in combination with metformin ± dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors, in a 52-week, open-label, treat-to-target trial in patients with type 2 diabetes followed by a 52-week extension trial in which subjects (n = 725/1030 [70.4%]) maintained their initial randomized treatment. Health status was assessed at baseline and 105 weeks using the Short Form 36 (SF-36 v2) questionnaire. SF-36 scores were analyzed (ITT population) using ANOVA, with adjustments for covariates. At 105 weeks, the overall physical component score was significantly better with IDeg versus IGlar (treatment contrast (TC): 1.1 [0.1; 2.1]95% CI , p

The healing power of ultraviolet light (UV) has flown under the radar for decades. Yet, it’s one of the most powerful detoxifying agents known to man. It kills bacteria and viruses and can be used in a clinical setting. The therapeutic benefits of light have been known for millennia. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, believed light was essential to balance the body and emotions. And there is good reason why, during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, medics discovered that severely ill patients had hugely better recovery rates when they were nursed outside and had regular exposure to sunlight.1 You see, UV r...

This article summarizes the clinical questions and bottom-line answers from the top 20 POEMs of 2019. Taking blood pressure medications at night results in a large mortality reduction over six years compared with morning dosing. Automated devices are the best way to measure blood pressure. Nonfasting lipid profiles are preferred over fasting lipid profiles, and nonfasting and fasting lipid profiles are equally effective at predicting risk. The benefit of statins for primary prevention in people 75 years and older is uncertain at best. Aspirin has no net benefit for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and has no ef...

We herein report a 71-year-old Japanese woman with type 2 diabetes and hemodialysis who suffered from multiple dentofacial abscesses mainly caused by multidrug-resistant Streptococcus oralis. She complained of pain and swelling of her face, with an extraoral fistula from the left cheek. Following 3 surgical debridement procedures and partial mandibulectomy, in addition to 12 weeks ...

(Natural News) People in Zimbabwe and Madagascar have been using plants like Annona stenophylla (dwarf custard-apple) and Flacourtica indica (governor’s plum) as medicines for years. Dwarf custard-apple is a traditional remedy for Type 2 diabetes, gonorrhea, syphilis and abdominal pain. Meanwhile, governor’s plum is used to treat body pain and, in some cases, snakebite. In a recent study, scientists from Zimbabwe and...

Conclusion: The study demonstrated a new possible infectious cause of SBP by C Coli, which was rarely seen in liver cirrhosis but mostly found in immunocompromised patients. Thus, it might raise an idea of microorganism screening of broader types that might also induce SBP for immunocompromised patients.

The benefits of physical exercise for the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes are well established, including improved glucose control, cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular strength, muscle mass, and body composition [1]. In contrast, there is little knowledge on the specific effects of exercise training on chronic pain in this population [2]. This is despite growing evidence that people with type 2 diabetes are more likely to develop a range of rheumatological and musculoskeletal problems, and experience both widespread and neuropathic pain [3 –5].
