Tirzepatide improves glycemic control and weight loss in patients with type 2 diabetes

1. Tirzepatide was superior to placebo with regard to changes in HbA1c, serum glucose, body weight loss, and proportion of patients achieving HbA1c targets...

Cycling is associated with reduced all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality in individuals with diabetes

1. Time spent cycling was associated with lower all-cause and cardiovascular disease-specific mortality in this multicenter European cohort study of patients with diabetes, independent...

Sotagliflozin increase days-alive-and-out-of-hospital in patients with diabetes and heart failure

1. Sotagliflozin treatment was shown to increase the days-alive-and-out-of-hospital compared to placebo in patients with type 2 diabetes and heart failure. 2. Sotagliflozin treatment was...

Tai Chi may be effective in reducing waist circumference

1. Tai Chi was shown to be as effective as conventional exercise in reducing waist circumference in adults with central obesity. 2. A 12-week Tai...

Tamoxifen decreases recurrence rates at 25 years in lymph node-negative estrogen-receptor-positive and Erb-B2 Receptor...

1. Tamoxifen reduced the long-term risk of breast cancer metastasis or recurrence and improved survival, especially in large, low-grade progesterone receptor-positive, or Ki-67-positive patients,...

Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors associated with reduced mortality compared with sulfonylureas in patients with...

1. In patients with type 2 diabetes, use of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors was associated with reduced risk of all-cause mortality compared with sulfonylureas,...

Autonomous cortisol secretion correlated with mortality for adrenal incidentalomas

1. Adrenal incidentalomas patients with severely elevated cortisol levels following a dexamethasone suppression test were shown to have a three-time increase in the risk...

Conventional cardiovascular risk assessments may overestimate risk in populations with widespread diabetes screening guidelines

1. Widespread diabetes screening helps to identify asymptomatic patients with preserved renal function and low diabetes-associated cardiovascular risk. 2. New cardiovascular risk stratification strategies are...

Real-time continuous glucose monitoring improves glycemic control compared to intermittently scanned monitoring for patients...

1. Time in range after 6 months was higher with rtCGM than with isCGM. 2. Participants on rtCGM scored better on the satisfaction subscale of...

Continuous glucose monitoring results in better glycemic control compared to conventional methods in patients...

1. Among adults with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes treated with basal insulin without prandial insulin, continuous glucose monitoring resulted in significantly lower hemoglobin...
