1. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor use among children and adolescents with public health insurance was found to be associated with a mildly increased risk for the developed of type 2 diabetes mellitus. 2. The magnitude of this risk, overall, was substantially lower than that of other risk factors for the...

1. Indigenous individuals with diabetes were found to have poorer blood sugar and lipid levels, as well as higher use of diabetes medications, compared to non-Indigenous patients. 2. Indigenous individuals with diabetes had lower rates of HbA1c and LDL monitoring than the general population. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Diabetes is a...
Air pollution and family related determinants of asthma onset and persistent wheezing in children: nationwide case-control study 1. Exposure to particulate matter less than 2.5 um in diameter was identified as an environmental risk factor for pediatric asthma. 2. Family related risk factors for pediatric asthma include parental asthma, maternal smoking...
1. Diet alone had nearly identical benefits on insulin sensitivity compared to gastric bypass surgery. 2. The metabolic benefits from diet and gastric bypass surgery were related to weight loss. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Previous studies have demonstrated that bariatric surgeries are far more effective than medical therapy to...
1. Metformin was found to be safe and tolerable in survivors of pediatric brain tumors. 2. Metformin was associated with retention of memory and processing speed abilities, as well as a reduction of white matter loss. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) It is believed that endogenous neural precursor cells (NPCs) can promote...
1. Patients who used continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) showed significantly reduced glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) levels compared to those who used standard blood glucose monitoring (BGM) after 26 weeks. 2. On average, patients in the CGM group spent more time in the target glucose range (70-180 mg/dL) compared to those in...
