The burden of uncontrolled A1C in type 1 diabetes: 30  years of insights from the DCCT/EDIC study
In the 1990s, the results of the Diabetes Control and Complication Trial (DCCT) set the standard for the management of type 1 diabetes.1 The trial unequivocally demonstrated that intensive diabetes therapy, based on multiple daily injections of insulin or insulin pump, frequent monitoring of blood glucose, and specific glucose targets, resulted in lower Hemoglobin A1C (A1C) and less microvascular complications than conventional therapy.1 After the trial closeout, patients were encouraged to adopt or to continue the intensive treatment regimen with their own healthcare providers, and their outcomes were followed up in the E...

What are the Clinical, Quality-of-Life, and Cost Consequences of 30 Years of Excellent vs. Poor Glycemic Control in Type 1 Diabetes?
The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) demonstrated that intensive therapy for type 1 diabetes delayed the development of microvascular and neuropathic complications compared to conventional therapy. At the end of DCCT, all participants were trained in intensive therapy, care was transferred to community providers, and the difference in HbA1c between treatment groups narrowed and disappeared. Our objective was to describe the outcomes and the quality-of-life and costs associated with those outcomes in participants who maintained excellent vs. (Source: Journal of Diabetes and Its Complications)

Renal protection by sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors and its underlying mechanisms in diabetic kidney disease
Patients with type 2 diabetes are at high risk of adverse cardiovascular and renal outcomes. Diabetic kidney disease is the most frequent cause of mortality and morbidity, leading a global health burden. The treatment of diabetes is rapidly changing and several new therapeutic agents have been released in the past decade.Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, including empagliflozin and canagliflozin, have been widely used as anti-diabetic drugs. Recent clinical studies have demonstrated that these drugs, which improve glycemic control and hypertension and decrease body weight, decrease the risk of renal functi...
