1. In this randomized controlled trial, patients with type 1 diabetes who used a closed-loop system spent a greater percentage of time in a target glycemic range compared to those who used a sensor-augmented insulin pump. 2. The closed-loop system was effective in reducing glycated hemoglobin level as well as...
Intensive glycemic control has been shown to reduce the risk of retinopathy and nephropathy in the setting of type 1 diabetes. While prior studies have established that an elevated hemoglobin A1C (HbA1C) is an independent risk factor for diabetic complications, few studies have followed patients from the time of...
1. In children with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) on metformin, those randomized to liraglutide had better glycemic control after 26 weeks compared to placebo treated patients. 2. Patients treated with liraglutide experienced more adverse events and gastrointestinal issues than placebo patients. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent)   Study Rundown: Incidence of both childhood...
1. Over a median period of almost 16 months, type 2 diabetic (T2DM) patients randomized to oral semaglutide for experienced a similar rate of cardiovascular (CV) events compared to placebo treated patients. 2. Discontinuation of therapy due to gastrointestinal issues occurred more often in the semaglutide group. Evidence Rating Level: 1...

1. In a 15-year observational cohort study of type 2 diabetics treated with intensive compared to standard glucose control therapy the risk of major cardiovascular event or death was similar between both treatment groups. 2. There was no reported difference in health-related quality of life scores between the intensive and...
1. In this prospective cohort study, adolescents with type 1 diabetes (T1D) were noted to be more likely to have persistently elevated distress levels if they were female, had elevated initial hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels, reported the low self-care behaviors, higher levels of depression and anxiety, and increased disease-related...

Image: PD 1. The TExT-MED program did not result in a statistically significant improvement in HbA1c levels. 2. The program was associated with trends toward improvement in HbA1c as well as secondary outcomes, especially improved medication adherence.  Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: mHealth – the use of mobile telephones as a vehicle...
