Impact of applying a diabetes risk score in primary care on change in physical activity: a pragmatic cluster randomised trial
ConclusionsThe application of a noninvasive diabetes risk score alone is not effective in promoting physical activity in primary care.Clinical Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT03234322, registration date: July 31, 2017). (Source: Acta Diabetologica)

Employment status and diabetic outpatient appointment non-attendance in middle to senior working generation with type 2 diabetes: the Japan diabetes outcome intervention trial-2 large ‑scale trial 005 (J-DOIT2-LT005)
ConclusionsSelf-employed men with type 2 diabetes had a twofold increased risk of non-attendance than did full-time employees. Our study suggests that self-employed men with type 2 diabetes should be targeted for interventions promoting appointment adherence. (Source: Acta Diabetologica)

Risk factors for nephropathy in persons with type 1 diabetes: a population-based study
ConclusionsPreventing renal complications in adolescents and young adults with type 1 diabetes need avoidance at relatively high levels of blood pressure, blood lipids and BMI, whereas very tight control is not associated with further risk reduction. For patients with long-term poor glycaemic control, stricter blood pressure control is advocated. (Source: Acta Diabetologica)

LitKDM2 study: the impact of health Literacy and knowledge about the disease on the metabolic control of type 2 diabetes mellitus
ConclusionsHL seems to be associated with better metabolic control. We also found a high prevalence of illiteracy and scarce knowledge about DM. Primary care physicians should promote HL to help patients achieve better metabolic control. (Source: Acta Diabetologica)

Evaluation of the RSR 3 screen ICA ™ and 2 screen ICA™ as screening assays for type 1 diabetes in Sweden
Conclusion3 Screen achieved high sensitivity and specificity, suitable for islet cell autoimmunity screening in a healthy population. In the case of 3 Screen positivity, further assays for GADA, IA-2A and ZnT8A are required to check for multiple autoantibody positivity, a hallmark for progression to T1D. In addition, testing for IAA in children below two years of age is warranted. (Source: Acta Diabetologica)

Soluble α-Klotho levels, glycemic control and renal function in US adults with type 2 diabetes
Conclusionss-Klotho levels are dependent on kidney function and glycemic control in patients with T2D. Additional studies elucidating the mechanisms linking glycemic control and s-Klotho levels and exploring their predictive ability of clinically meaningful outcomes in patients with diabetes are needed.

Gestational diabetes in twin pregnancy: A predictor of adverse fetomaternal outcomes?
ConclusionsIn GDM pregnant women, twin pregnancy seems to be associated with an increased prevalence of neonatal morbidity when compared to singleton pregnancy. On the other hand, in twin pregnancy, diagnosis of GDM does not seem to be associated with poorer fetomaternal outcomes. GDM seems to be protective for the occurrence of SGA neonates in twin pregnancies. (Source: Acta Diabetologica)
